Exploited: The makers of Chocolate-Frosted Sugar Bombs advertise their product during kids' cartoons, so that the viewers will beg their parents to buy the product.

Discussed: "A mark of a good show is that anyone can find it entertaining. It's got simple morality and life-lessons for the kids, some action, and a plot smart enough not to insult their intelligence (and engage their parents/older siblings)."
