Summary
"Tweencom Girls analyzes the different ways character tropes, particularly for female characters, have been portrayed in media and targeted at eight- to twelve-year-olds over the past twenty-five years. This book focuses particularly on sitcoms produced by the cable giants Disney Channel and Nickelodeon because of their popularity and ubiquity. It provides extensive examples and alternative interpretations of the shows' tropes and themes, particularly for those who are unfamiliar with the genre. The first section explores common tweencom tropes, focusing on different themes that are prevalent throughout the series. The second section includes a discussion of the big picture of how tropes and themes give insight into the female characters portrayed in the popular tweencom programming, as well as advice to parents and educators"--Back cover
