Dear Disney Channel

Enough with the repeats, oh, and while you're at it can you get some new script writers? It's lazy to keep using the same lines and jokes in every series.
The 'dirty ape' gag has been in Hannah Montana, The Suite Life of Zac and Cody, Lizzie McGuire and Thats so Raven.
I've seen these things so many times I could act a part in them, I know all the words. Oh, and Please, please, please stop with the product plugging or at least vary it a little. You have a huge backlist why not use it to shake up the programming. A Mickey cartoon or a bit of Donald Duck in between the staple stuff would go down a storm.
This Sundays Hannahthon hot on the heels of Hannahween is enough to drive me to Boomerang - (They have Scooby Doo)
Yours sincerely, Glazed, deafened and stressed Mom of three.

Nell, condolences. But come round to our house and you'll get Cartoonito-ed to death. I swear water torture would be more bearable. Don't even get me started on the bain of my life - Horrid Henry (my 'angel' thinks he's a role model - bah).

I'm just thankful the Teletubbies days are over, because that was the most painful show ever invented. Closely followed by The Wiggles. Thankfully, my kids are getting right into Star Wars right now which is a win win situation for us all!!!!!

You're going to hate me for asking this, but what's the dirty ape gag?

The dirty ape gag usually has a chimp in the story but not always and involves a character uttering 'get your paws off me you dirty ape'. in a mock broad chicago accent.

Hmmm. Sounds.... funny.
