I believe we have reached a new generation of laziness in childrens' programming.
Now, I have no problem with spin-off series as long as they're handled gracefully, but there is currently a show on the Disney Channel called "Timmy Time"
Timmy Time is a spin-off of Shaun the Sheep
Which is a spin-off of Wallace and Gromit
I'm not positive, but I'm thinkin' that it miiiight be a bit of a stretch at this point...
I haven't actually seen Timmy Time, so I don't actually know if it's any good or not, so I'll give it the benefit of the doubt because both Wallace and Gromit AND Shaun the Sheep are awesome. I was just a little bewildered by the fact that it's a spin-off of a spin-off... Don't know how much further you can go before it starts getting ridiculous.
