What is with cartoons recently/RAGE MODE

Was gonna go in to full detail but decided to get to the point and save that for another time. Ok maybe a little detail. It's one of those sparked rages when you see something that blue screen of deaths your brain!
Teen Titans, Xiaolin Showdown, Batman, Spiderman, Pokemon, Digimon, countless 80s cartoons, Looney Tunes and others I may not have mentioned. Cartoons like these have been safety padded, marshmallowed and just stripped of the awesomeness they once held.
It's like - No funny/witty humour...no awesome action in an action cartoon...no regard for the original material when making awful reboots. I mean there's a channel for tiny kids and one for young adults and teenagers...they may aswell keep it all on the one channel now!
No maturing content like even for cartoons, even though it was kinda lame and sometimes not so noticeable were the life lessons that were say at the end of a TMNT episode - So they through shredder ironically in to the shredder and he is dead..."I've learned something dudes, be true to friends and they'll do they same!(Righteous!)" Now it's just coffee fueled, cocaine induced...crap. Quite literally "JOEBOB I stopped the monster!" "It's ok I pooped my jelly bears."
It's like, I think youth today would benefit from watching old dvds or VIDEOS!!! from when cartoons for of a decent standard. I mean I loved the hell out of cartoons before my time...F'ING Street Sharks
I'm not totally ratting on all of today's modern mess. Adventure time, Regular Show, Amazing World Of Gumball are totally righteous reason to watch cartoons still and that Adventures of Flapjack thing was ok I guess.
I'm sorry though but maybe I don't want South Park, Family Guy or American dad etc all the time. Granted It's funny at times but you can't beat the spirit of good and pure cartoons.
I guess children are naive and need to be shown the way of awesome. Still there are those like me in a big club of sorts, who still know what good cartoons were and are and we still deserve to enjoy them too.
It may not be clear what I've said, but I hope the message is and I just felt so compelled to write something.
HEROES IN A HALF SHELL...
