how did the kids respond in 1956?

last night I sat down with my younger son as my older son took a bath
eight year old Grant was pushing for some screen time
we try... operative word try.... we try to have school nights as "screen free"
but... things are easier said than done
especially when there are iPhones, iPads, iMacs all offering various forms of screen entertainment

so...
I intervened
I grabbed the controller and did a search on APPLE TV
somehow I landed on THE RED BALLOON

well... my young son felt that the red balloon was "creepy"
he wanted to know if the balloon was "alive" if the balloon had a "brain"
and most importantly
if that creepy red balloon was going to kill him in the end
