I HATE THE NEW CARTOONS SHOWS COMING OUT! Yes, this needed all caps.
For some unknown reason children’s networks are hiring misogynists and allowing them to create cartoons which tell little girls they show to be vapid boy-crazy drama queens.
It hasn’t always been this way.
Scooby Doo used to be a fun cartoon. Velma was book smart, and Daphne was creative and intelligent too. Yet in the new series Velma say to Daphne. “If you’re smart and pretty then what do I have?”
ARE YOU SERIOUS?
THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT LITTLE GIRLS TO SEE? TO THINK IS OKAY? TO ASPIRE TO BE?
It wasn’t this way in the original show done in 1969!
The new Teen Titans, both the male and female characters are stupid, whiny, love-sick idiots. WHY? How does this help our kids?
And in the new Chipmunks show and movie, the girls—which are children and animals—are overtly sexualized.
And before you go dissing cartoons, consider:
Original Teen Titans
Phineas and Ferb
Scooby Doo by Hanna Barbera
Avatar The Last Air Bender
Cartoons CAN entertain, they CAN inspire, and they CAN show intelligent thoughtful characters.
At this point I’m having my kids watch movies and TV shows on DVD because I refuse to have my kids think that the cartoon characters’ act is acceptable.
