Children's Cartoon: Krishna and Syamantaka Jewel

[PADA: Some devotees have criticized the program of making cartoons of Krishna leela for children, but from our experience, children will sit and watch them -- when the same children will not sit still otherwise. In other words, children like these cartoons. And in India millions of children watch these on TV, and we would argue, its better for them to watch these than say, Bugs Bunny. I also know some adults who like these cartoons, because they are getting to know these stories. Anyway, if someone else has a better program to present these stories to children, I have not seen it. We did have some puppet shows at the time of Srila Prabhupada, but we have not seen this being done very much as of late. The fact that these are in English is also good since many things from India are Hindi only. Anyway, these are for kids, and we thinks the cartoons are doing a good job of helping them understand some of these leelas. ys pd]
