Proposal: sophisticated, straightforward humor that relies on slapstick punchlines can appeal to both adults that enjoy clean, smart comedy, and to kids who are building up their language and visual skills and thus benefit from not being talked down to.

I'm trying to figure out the best way to get my nephew to watch Ducktales. He's fairly resistant to suggestions, and has refused to give Steven Universe a passing glance.

My current thoughts are maybe I should wait to bring it up until the Minecraft tie-in happens.
