Folklore cartoons are more entertaining than educational.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that though the first cartoon about John Henry is a more inclusive look at an African-American hero, the other three cartoons are much more dated -- and less educational -- retellings of American legends. The Johnny Appleseed cartoon features a song about the Lord and a Bible that accompanies Johnny wherever he goes.
