  1. Oh MY God! I’ve totally got tears from laughing so hard… Awesome!

    Personally, I have six or seven DVDs of the “old” cartoons with Bugs, Taz, and the rest of the gang that I mix in with the Diego, Backyardigans, and Handy Manny. If nothing else, my kids are well rounded – happy as hell but willing to blow shit up! LOL.

    Thanks for the laugh, Rich!

  2. Dude I reached my boiling point when the cookie monster changes his shit up to include vegetable’s and fruit.

    I couldn’t agree with you more on this blog.

    Some great fucking pictures here.

  3. She-ra kicked ass!!! In my day, I watched cartoons every Sat morning. They might have slipped in a social situation every now and then, but mainly it was fun! Now I bet Gargomel couldn’t even try to eat a smurf.

    If you want to toughen your kids up or severely traumatize them, give or take, you should get ’em to watch Happy Tree Friends.
    Love the post and the background is awesome!

      • She-Ra and He-Man are my ATF’s there the original action cartoons, now Voltron was cool, but the fact he did’nt speak took away from its appeal to me. They really dont make cartoons like the did years ago, more creativity and originality is missing in the recent ones. Oh there was a cartoon in the 80’s (cant remember the name) but there were molton lava people (the bad guys) and the others where made out of crystal or ice(the good ones)…does anybody remember that cartoon?

  4. Rich your blog is rich with alot of sass, humor and it just makes you think, cartoons these days are the worst ever. Its the same bs over and over and over and OVER AGAIN! highly doubt kids of today have learned anything while their learning curb has been place on constant replay.

  6. Ah, the memories!

    I don’t watch kids channels, but your post has made me realise the cartoons these days have no balls, like so many other things in this so-called advanced age. It’s truly tragic.

  8. i would also like to remember the name of the cartoon with lava people. i think they rode dragons or something(the good guy) i downloaded thundarr but that wasn’t it. i have been looking for this cartoon for awhile now and i can’t find it its driving me nuts

  9. I agree, good old cartoons have gone to the dogs. And yes, school is for learning, cartoons are for forgetting you have to deal with that sorry-ass hell hole for 20 years of your life (assuming your parents hated your lousy-ass 4-year-old self and f@cking dumped you in preschool so the “care-givers” aka Feminazi’s can teach you what f@cking red and yellow make when you mix them, even if you already know it’s orange, put you in a time out for reading during that time span (because apparently 4-year-olds who can read are unaccepable, they have to be stupid like everyone else so the Feminazi can teach them colors!) and they don’t let you go to the bathroom during nap-time because they think you’re looking for an excuse to not sleep, so you piss yourself in front of all the other toddlers. Then people wonder why you end up dysfunctional as an adult. Child care has been F.U.B.A.R. for the last 20 years. Screw spending time with your kids, dump ’em in day care when they’re 6 months old and pay someone else to abuse them and not change their diapers for weeks so your child just rots away from the anus up. Then we educate them from the time they’re 2 with these bullshit cartoons and send them to preschool and try to teach them quantum physics and shit they’re not mentally prepared for. But God forbid they’re naturally smart, because that would be a crime. “You can read? And you’re three? Where’d you learn? What?! Not at preschool?! Unacceptable! Go be f@cking stupid like the other kids so you can be taught something the way we want you to learn it. Natruall intelligence gives you an unfair advantage over stupid people, Be stupid so we can control you better you whiney little bastards.” I swear, I wouldn’t trust this whole education movement with my child. They suppressed my intelligence with remedial crap for most of my life and punished me for being different. All of the above is only the tip of the iceberg of my crappy youth. And from all of this, the issue of “bad cartoons” stems.

    Firstly, we have sacrificed the entertainment value of the cartoon in favor of educational value. Before, the cartoon had a good stroy with life-lessons natrually in it because it represented real life. Now, instead of using the old system that worked just fine, we decided that it wasn’t appropriate, because somehow children were learning violence from all of this. i’m taking psychology right now. We learned that yes, cartoons can promote violent behavior, but it is the parent’s who are responsible for this. Firstly, in a child who already understands violence is bad, they watch violence on TV already knowing not to copy that behavior, so there’s no problem. Children who do form the misconception that violence is acceptable have never been taught by their parents that such behavior is inexcusable, and their violent behaviors could be reversed by explaining the difference between what is real, and what is fiction. But no, parents don’t have time to sit down with their kids and say “Listen, honey, even though Billy punched Bobby in that cartoon you watched, that’s not real. It might not look like Bobby was hurt, but if you do that for real, it will hurt, so don’t do it, okay?” because they’re too busy fooling around on facebook or talking on the phone or working overtime to make enough money to buy another new car. And if they really wanted to prevent that sort of thing, don’t use a TV as a babysitter! Watch your kids! And if you do let them watch TV, know what they’re watching, and watch it yourself, if you don’t like it, then don’t let your kids watch it, okay? Don’t ruin TV for the rest of us and complain that there’s too much violence on TV. Don’t watch it if you don’t like it! If I don’t like the Twilight Saga, I don’t read it and then bitch about it. I just don’t read it. It’s a f@cking simple solution! Let the people who like it enjoy it, and piss off!

    And I hate how they have to teach kids annoying songs to repeat over and over to no end. I still haven’t forgotten those stupid Barney songs! Icant’ stand ’em!

    And I hate, hate, hate how they take perfectly good anime from Japan and try to dumb it down for kids here even though it’s obviously aimed at teens/adults. One Piece is a prefect example, if you’ve heard of it. Just check out the original Toei Animation version or FUNimation version versus the shitty 4KIDS version. It’s about pirates, and there’s obviously a lot of fighting. But in the 4KIDS version, all the guns are either turned into shitty, crap awful contraptions that aren’t threatening (see episode 2-3 of the 4KIDS version to see the stupidity, I can’t even describe its insult to basic human intelligence properly…) or they paint them bright fun colors (in a failed attempt to make them look less like guns, I guess) which is just wrong! And whenever they can,they skip through significant portions of fight scenes. People get cut to shreds (but don’t die) over and over, which wouldn’t be bad except they edit out all the blood! Not even efficiently! I’ve caught characters with bloody noses after being stabbed in the gut, so even though they edit out the blood on the abdomen, chest and mouth, it’s still under his nose?! Or people get blown up by cannons and other such stuff and they just appear “dirty” afterward. No blood, no scars, just brown smudgy stuff! Don’t these images teach our kids the opposite of what we want? Guns, knives and bombs don’t hurt/ kill people!? Most kids I know only understand pain because of blood, if they don’t see blood, they don’t think someone’s hurt. But if they see it, they get worried, but it doesn’t traumatize them for Pete’s sake! Try expalining 9/11 to your kids after showing them in cartoons that bombs don’t hurt people! It makes me so f@cking pissed!

    Anyway, sorry for the long comment, but I totally agree with you. Stop effing up our cartoons! You can’t make the whole world politically correct assholes! So stop screwing with our cartoons when they’re obviously not the biggest problem!

  10. Also, they do the same shit with videogames now. Whatever happened to the good old days of Banjo-Kazooie where a bear and a bird could beat the shit out of a fat, old witch and it was rated E for Everyone (ESRB Rating)? Nowadays, that game would have a M for Mature rating for animal abuse, cartoon violence, suggesive themes, gambling and alcohol reference. I hate that shit! Can’t there be a “beat the shit out of things” video game without it earning a T for Teen or M for Mature rating anymore?! And yet we promote little whores and popstars as idols for our kids? (not naming names or their 50 million fans will bludgeon me to death with their new “politically and anatomically corrected Barbies with various career goals for girls”)
    I mean come on, do we want to teach our kids that being a slave for the media and shaking their hips like over-sexed dogs is going to make them a famous, well-loved,healthy individual? We only teach our children that to be happy, you need to be beautiful and sexy. And to do that, they have to sell their soul to the media. Come on, when was the last time you saw a fat actor lately? The media’s even making the ones we do have lose weight because they set a “bad example.” What bad example?! That fat people, ugly people, and people that don’t fit the public opinion of “beautiful” are still people and are still worthwhile, and can still be happy?! I’d want my kids to learn that! Be happy with who you are, because that’s something people can never take from you, your pride and self-esteem! I want my kids to see sucessful fat people and supposed “freaks” who are extremely tallented if you would give them a chance! I want more “unhealthy” fat people on TV! I want more ugly people! I want less of those skinny little plastic surgery altered whores with size M cups and size -3 pants sizes!
