very true.

None.

They're fine and if you don't like them then just don't watch the show.

Another show however, that I strongly dislike is icarly. I think sam is a horrible influence, she is so mean and is always beating people up. its such a stupid show, too. just like all the shows that guy creates, ahah.
Ahh-greed.

I don't think the Jonas Brothers influence kids badly. And Jackson is in the middle, but his is more humorous/goofy rather than a rule-breaking kid.
I agree.

Yes, I know of many characters that influence me (mostly from animes and video games ) and my little sister (Hamtaro, for one... sometimes she'll randomly go "kusshi-kusshi!" and I don't even know what that means... ), but the ones listed don't influence me. However, I know people who they do influence, and they influence them badly.

I'd have to say other.

Sam Puckett from iCarly.

Ok as much as I love the character I do think onscreen she is a really bad influence. But offscreen I know for a fact she is NOT like she is onscreen.
She is aggressive, rude, disrespectful (towards freddie especially) and lazy ect.
Now I do agree with all the Disney ones you listed above too, but I don't know too much about Disney because I hardly ever watch it.

Yes, Sam Puckett isn't a great influence, but if you haven't realized, that show is designed for TEENAGERS, hence it's on TEENick. They're not trying to poorly influence children, they just thought it was funny (and yes, admit it, she's funny)

However, Alex Russo on WOWP is a show designed for ALL ages, basically 6-16. So if anything, she should be a better role model.

So kids can CHOOSE to watch iCarly, but if they are poorly influenced, it is their fault, considering it is a show aimed and teenagers.
