  • Disney Needs to Remove This Violent and Disturbing Episode!

    My girls (ages 6, 8, and 10) and I have always enjoyed watching this show together. It's always been humorous and seemingly innocent. Tonight was a disturbing exception, however. This Halloween episode called "The Whining" (based on Stephen King's "The Shining") has no place in kids programming at all. It was gruesome, bloody (explained as spilled juice), horrifying, and talked (or hinted at) extreme violence and murder, all at the nanny's hands - which chased the children around with a meat cleaver. What's worse is that something almost exactly like what was acted out in this episode just took place in real life New York City, in a wealthy high-rise apartment building, at the hands of the nanny of two small children (ages 2 and 6). I couldn't help but think this is what those poor children witnessed before they were killed. This episode was not cute or funny. It was just plain evil. Disney really got this one wrong.
