Bummer! I didn't even know such a project was in the works.
Now I really wish the conflict would get resolved...
I'm sure my mom is sighing with relief that the girls won't have access to such drivel -- but I wish we had the choice to watch it from time to time. And frankly -- there aren't other options for the kids other than really bad imported cartoons. No "PBS"-type shows.
Sure, the Disney Channel instantly imports American culture into any country it enters -- and I can see why the Russian government would be opposed. But COME ON, it's in CHINA!
In our case, it would be nice for the girls to feel more of a pop-culture connection to their American peers. Heck, anything that makes it bit more palatable on a rough day here would be welcome!
