(Very) Young TV Critics on Their Favorite Shows and the Weird Stuff Their Parents Used to Watch

This month at Slate, we’re delving deep into children’s television. In addition to hearing from writers, academics, and parents on all aspects of the genre, we wanted to hear from the real experts. For that, we convened a panel of six 4- and 5-year-olds to talk about their TV habits today—what, where, and how they watch—and also what they think of what kids used to watch.

They had some opinions. Watch Nina, Carter, Chloe, Adam, Benjamin, and Clara fill you in on how things really are in the delightful video above.
