Why Aren't Cartoon Violent Anymore?
    #7194361 - 07/18/07 10:06 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

So I'm sitting here watching a marathon of Lewis Milestone movies on Turner Classic Movies and in between the movies they show a Tom and Jerry cartoon about how Jerry takes in two orphan indian mouses kids who proceed to attack Tom through such hilarious means as scalping him and hitting him with a mail box and all sorts of seriously absurd methods. I seriously laughed like I haven't laughed in a long time at a cartoon because I had forgotten just how ridiculous these old cartoons were. Sure the cartoon involved insane violence and stereotypes of indians but the damn thing made me laugh. The cartoon ended with Tom, the two indian mouses and Jerry all smoking a peace pipe. I was floored with how anti-politically correct the cartoon was even though it ended on a positive note and wasn't offensive at all. I think about cartoons now that's humor is all based in parody and trying to be children's version of On The Waterfront and I realized I hadn't laughed at a modern cartoon in almost a decade. I'm really annoyed with society and guilty left pussy motherfuckers who just don't have a sense of humor and worry "about the children" Any thoughts or comments or opinions would be appreciated.

Also another political correctness thing that fucking annoys me. Why do spell checkers insist on capitalizing words such as "american" "christian" "christ" "indian" and show as a misspelled word if you do so? I know it's proper grammatically to do so but it's such a subconscious way of mind fucking someone into thinking and putting unnecessary significance and respect into those words.

Nice rant. But I'm pretty sure proper nouns have nothing to do with 'respect'. :smirk: Although in all fairness I don't capitalize 'god' because it could refer to any number of imaginary gods depending on the reader's beliefs.

This is why, out of 600 cable channels, I pretty much only watch Turner Classic Movies anymore. People smoke cigarettes in those old movies too! :laugh:

I miss the days of disturbing cartoons...

I was once an avid watcher of shows like Ren and Stimpy, Rocko's Modern Life and Two Stupid Dogs.

Now THAT was quality television.

History says, Don't hope

On this side of the grave.

But then, once in a lifetime

The longed-for tidal wave

Of justice can rise up

And hope and history rhyme.

Dr :ronpaul: says to stop trying to treat the side-effects of big government and focus on the core issues. End the Federal Reserve/audit the gold reserves at Fort Knox, abolish the IRS, end all wars and occupancies, stop the building of an empire that will inevitably fail, and cut all unconstitutional federal programs. Put the power back in the peoples' hands by ending this nanny-state.
