The majority of YouTube videos are a headache. A 20-minute vlog has three minutes of entertaining footage, and the other 17 is unwatchable. YouTubers target the masses with unnecessary 24-hour challenges and on-camera breakup videos. Despite the lack of valuable media, kids across the globe religiously follow their favorite channels.

Nathan Fletcher, a father with two young children (Lazer and Jetson), recognizes the lack of quality better than anyone. Spending time with your kids means watching what they’re watching, and Nate has suffered through his fair share of toy unboxing videos.

Instead of agreeing to inhale the garbage that top vloggers continue to supply, Nathan has taken a more productive approach. Today, we welcome The Lazer and Jetson Show into our timelines. A surf and skate-focused series made specifically for kids (and it won’t make parents want to scratch their eyeballs out). The show promises fun, interesting, and informative content for children of all ages. I gave Nathan Fletcher a call to chat about the new adventure, check it out below:

What was the inspiration for the Lazer and Jetson show?

Well, I watch a lot of YouTube videos with my kids, and there’s just a lot of crap. I just have to keep watching these people on YouTube, telling me about this and that, opening presents and other nonsense.

And so finally at one point, I was like, you know what, we’re going to do something as a family. We’re going to promote going outside, having fun, and teach surfing/skating.

What makes it appealing for parents?

Basically, parents could put their kid in front of the television and know that they’re watching something cool, which is difficult in today’s world. Also, you could stand in the other room and not want to throw the television out the window because somebody’s screaming about a 24 hour challenge.

Pretty neat production, who’s contributing to this project?

I got help from friends for the audio and the graphics— Michael Oblowitz, Jeff Katz, Rick Montez, and Andrew Miller. The show has a real homemade feel to it.

How often can we expect new episodes?

I’m gonna say once a month.  We’re going to take about two weeks to shoot it, and then we’re going to take about two weeks to edit it. The reason we’re doing that is I want people to enjoy watching it. I want to put time into it and make it make a quality product versus doing an episode a week.

Are you we going to see any featured guests?

Well, it’s going to be different people all the time. It’ll be the local little kids around here for sure, plus Grayson, Christian, and whoever we’re around. I’m sure there’s going to be a lot of people that come through.
