Funny that you bring this up. Last night on Simps., Homer is speaking to this bloke, the bloke walks away and Homer ponders, "He was nice-wonder if he's gay?" Now that may not be a lot, but there's lots of little things in so many cartoons like that, that make inferences and play about certian aspects of society, cultures etc.
I know for one that as an Australian, and how they depict My nation in cartoon form is hilarious and to some degree it can be true. But only for a percent of the country. We're not all bushrollers, tree huggin sheep rearin bush men/women!
But we laugh anyway. Those Latin American kids see it for what it is-a simple, funny stereotypical cartoon mouse who tickles their funny bone with quirky antics and witty sayings-his accent and built adds to it. They see it for what it is, not what is being pushed forth. I think some people shoudl quit worrying about political correctness and the like and just enjoy things for what they are-not what they "may" be.
