Creepy Connie in Jessie. Dez and Naldo(who are basically the same person, anyway) on Austin and Ally and Best Friends Whenever, respectively. PJ Duncan on Good Luck Charlie. They all seem to need some serious mental health. It's not okay to make fun of mental illness in any other situation, so why does Disney channel do it all the time with these characters? Even Girl Meets World, which managed to give a character (Isodora Smackle) Asperger's Syndrome and handle it maturely instead of making jokes out of it, pokes fun at depression when Riley turns into "Morotia M. Black".
Why is this okay? Kids watch this show, do we want to teach them that mental illness is something to laugh about?

Okay I'm done ranting now. Have a nice day!

No, they're just exaggerated personalities. This happens on nearly every TV show. I remember reading somewhere where people were equating winnie the pooh as making fun of disorders because of the animals' personalities.

Personalities of characters on TV are always exaggerated to the point where it could be considered a mental disorder in real life. Deal with it, it's called humor. Nobody wants to see something extremely realistic on TV, they want to see an exaggerated version of the real world.

Okay, I think you're right. I overreacted.
