This paper provides a comparative study of children’s television programmes broadcast in Hungary and Turkey. We recorded and analysed Saturday morning TV programmes, with a special emphasis on various factors that may affect children’s socialisation (behavioural patterns, attitudes, conflicts, tolerance etc. seen in programmes). We compared those TV programmes with cultural similarities and differences. We make suggestions about how such television programmes might or hinder developing social skills. Children spend many hours watching television. Advertisements suggest desirable patterns of behaviour for them, and introduce them to the consumer society.
