Peter Robbins, the former voice actor for beloved child character Charlie Brown is getting grief of his own for stalking and threatening.

Like many “Bronies” — boys and men who like the cartoon “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic”— the 25-year-old college student turned out over the weekend for “BronyCon Summer 2012″ at the Meadowlands Exposition Center, which drew 4,000 men, women, boys and girls, many in colorful wigs and costumes.
We all look at the idea that “TV kills rots your brain” mitigated anti-Semitic speech, but turns out these old people may be onto something. A recent study shows the difference in brain functionality of kids who watch fast paced television like “Sponge Bob”. The short story of the research:
Objective: The goal of this research was to study whether a fast-paced television show immediately influences preschool-aged children’s executive function (eg, self-regulation, working memory).
Methods: Sixty 4-year-olds were randomly assigned to watch a fast-paced television cartoon or an educational cartoon or draw for 9 minutes. They were then given 4 tasks tapping executive function, including the classic delay-of-gratification and Tower of Hanoi tasks. Parents completed surveys regarding television viewing and child’s attention.
