Record Kids is a children's block from RecordTV initially dedicated to cartoons and sitcoms. It started in 2002, but only between 2005 and 2008 had its peak audience in the afternoons of programming with classics like Woody Woodpecker, Popeye the Sailor, in addition to the series Everybody Hates Chris. However, it went downhill since early 2012 to this day, due to the forced reruns of its two only current series Woody Woodpecker and Everybody Hates Chris, in addition to the lack of new cartoons and series.

Why It Sucks Now

  1. Various series (like Garfield and Friends, Johnny Test, Huntik, Dragon Booster, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987), Popeye the Sailor, Peanuts) left the block to focus only in the excessive reruns of Woody Woodpecker, Everybody Hates Chris and Biblical Cartoons.
  2. The reruns of Woody Woodpecker and Everybody Hates Chris in the block are very tiresome, irritating and predictable, since they air the same episodes that everyone already watched before, which is the main problem why the block didn't not improve for better. To add salt to the wound, RecordTV renews the rights of both two shows every year, to just only keep Record Kids on the air, worsening its downfall each year, instead of ending and permanently cancel the block and let them lose the broadcast rights of Woody Woodpecker and Everybody Hates Chris on Brazilian Free-to-air TV, to be prevented from renewing the rights of both series for more exhausting reruns for good.
    • Even worse, in some states like Minas Gerais, it only airs Woody Woodpecker.
  3. The block don't air new shows (only in Brazil), but its Portugal counterpart does air new shows, which shows RecordTV's neglect of the block in Brazil in the matter of new shows.
  4. Speaking of negligence, the series Everybody Hates Chris which is still airing in the block, is not a kid-friendly series to be aired in a block like Record Kids, since the series's content is not appropriated to the block's audience (which are kids less than the age of 10) and the block itself is called Record Kids. Adding that RecordTV banned the episode "Everybody Hates Lasagna" from their channel, due of marijuana.
  5. They tried once to air the infamously bad Spaceballs: The Animated Series which is also not a kid friendly series to air in the block.
  6. The block used to air Curious George and the Animated Stories from the New Testament, but unfortunately they aired this series rarely on the block, with its last airing in 2017, for more repetitive reruns of Woody Woodpecker and Everybody Hates Chris in the block.
  7. Because of the unhealthy obsession that Brazilian people have with Woody Woodpecker and Everybody Hates Chris, between 2020 and early 2021 the block became vice leader in ratings in areas like Rio de Janeiro or São Paulo, because these repetitive reruns of both shows in the block are easily considered one of the worst examples of the Adored by the Network trope in the Brazilian TV.

The Only Redeeming Quality

  1. The 2012-2018 and the current 2018 intros looks very nice and good.

Reception

Since 2012, the block was criticized by some RecordTV viewers, due to the block it became a repetitive rerun farm of Woody Woodpecker and Everybody Hates Chris with no new shows. Not helping that the block does not give good ratings to RecordTV, reaching third and fourth place on Sunday mornings, but since 2020 the block reached second place.
