    Sex and kiddie cartoons

    Like This Thread!
    Isn't that kind of treading dangerous ground with you put sexy female characters in kid shows and animated cartoon movies?

    You had Jessica Rabbit in Roger Rabbit which was supposed to be a family film.
    Hello Nurse in Animaniacs.
    Lola Bunny in Space Jam.

    What kind of message is that sending to kids?

    Are they subliminally trying to get youngsters to think about sex early?

    Cartoons aren't just for kids you know.

    Don't forget, there was also Cleo from Heathcliff & the Catillac Cats.

    Yes, and Dixie and Roxy.

    But what was the point of putting them in kids' shows if they are meant for kids?

    Wasn't Roger Rabbit geared more towards adults?

    Because cartoons aren't made solely for kids to the exclusion of everyone else, if they were this site probably wouldn't even exist. Lots of cartoon writers try to make their shows accessible to adults even if they're main demographic is kids. Check out any Greg Weisman show like Gargoyles or Spectacular Spider-Man for what Greg calls "writing on multiple levels".

    You may argue that these are action dramas and therefore held to a higher standard then your typical toon but comedies are no different, Tiny Toons, Animaniacs and Freakazoid all made constant jokes based on American politics, decades old movies and even world history.

    Seriously, Mavericker? You're going to try this again?

    And anyway, furries are the only people who are sexually attracted to cartoon animals, so it's hardly a issue.

    Try what again? Discussing morals in kiddie cartoons?

    Stop trying to ruin this thread.

    Getting back to topic parents should monitor what cartoons their kids watch.

    Also, what used to be considered family entertainment has changed.

    They are sticking sexual innuendo in G-rated movies.
