Kids can do dumb things, for sure. When my oldest daughter was 3 years old, she got her head stuck between two of the balusters on my parents' staircase. They don't realize that ears allow for easy insertion of the head, but that reversing it is a problem.
As for a fridge, well...the adults who stupidly throw it out without removing the door or at least the latch are the ones who should be trapped inside it, not some little kid.

Some of it is good advise, others are just silly. I still remember the confusion as a kid, after watching half an hour of lasers and things blow up, to suddenly get a wise lesson that had nothing to do with lasers and explosions. If anything, GI Joe taught me that anything can be solved by having the right military equipment and superior firepower.

IIRC other shows used to have stuff like that too. It used to be very popular for a while, but seems to have gone away since. I guess after watching today's cartoons, children don't have the attention span required to absorb these important life lessons...

Wait, kids actually get their hands stuck in banisters? Okay, I can't be that surprised; I almost got lots of parts of my body stuck in lots of random places. If it's not obvious at this point, I was (...am) one of those kids who did the opposite of what he was told. I had to learn / experience it for myself. "Don't stick your finger in sockets." "Hey, I wonder what that feels like? *BZZT* Oh." (True story.)

Looney Toons taught me that sometimes it is okay for a man (rabbit) to kiss another man (pig/duck/bald) if it is funny. Also that Coyotes worked hard for their money.
