Children’s TV Gets Smart in Indonesia
A group of 60 Indonesian children, aged 10 and 11, were surveyed about their favorite television shows.
Their top four answers were popular Western animated series “SpongeBob,” “Tom and Jerry,” and Japanese cartoons “Doraemon” and “Naruto.”
With the goal of giving kids a more educational TV alternative, TVRI launched a new program called “I Got It!” earlier this month.
The same group of 60 children who counted “SpongeBob” and “Naruto” among their favorite TV shows were shown the episode of “I Got It!,” which covered evolution. On a scale of one to five, half of the kids gave the show a five, saying it was very good.
