What Happened to My Cartoons?

Sure somethings need updating, but I'm not sure about all the updates some older cartoons are getting. Check out the new Strawberry Shortcake:

She was so cute and innocent before! Apparently, she wasn't popular with today's young audience. Now prefers fresh fruit to gumdrops- ok that's an improvement. Now apparently she wears just a dab of lipstick- again, a reasonable improvement. Now she spends her time chatting on a cellphone instead of brushing her calico cat- what?! Why a cell phone? How old is Strawberry Shortcake? Not old enough to chatting away on a cell phone certainly. What's wrong with playing with cats? Kids grow up too fast these days anyways, no need to push them along by having their cartoons involved in seemingly grown-up activities.
