yeah, i read an article about how gay organizations were accepting spongebob, and it said something like "the show follows a sponge whose best friend is a pink starfish, with whom he frequently holds hands." -_- i dunno, i don't really buy that, but i can't believe no one has mentioned tinky winky.  wink
oh yeah, i saw rugrats the other day, and Tommy had convinced all the babies to take off thier clothes and just be naked all the time. so they were standing around naked, and tommy looked down and then looked over at Phil (not at his face tho- it was very clear where he was looking) and said "Phil, can I ask you a question?" O_o

Yeah I've seen that ep, its actually Lill that they say it to. Tommy and Phil both looked at one another, then at Lill and then thats when he says the line;
'Erm...Lill can I ask you something?'

Kinda funny really, I never relaised till looking in this thread just how much sexual stuff goes on in theses kids tv programs. Its corrupting!
Oh and as a big fan of Spongebob,, I gotta say, I do notice the refrences in that, a lot  laff

I think its good for the young kids, they must mature faster in order to become the target of the new Pornography Network, because we all know that "Children are the Future!"

Um...no.

Anyway, I was watching an episode of Courage the Cowardly Dog with my niece once, and their was this rabbit and cat. The cat hated dogs and really started to hate them when Bunny started dating one who treated her like crap. The cat moves in with Courage and starts torturing him because he is a dog. Torwards the end he reunites the two "friends".
I think this was a metaphor for a lesbian relationship and how some men are dogs. So in theory, Bunny and Kitty were lesbians (although Bunny didn't realize this at first) and in the end both realize they don't need dogs (men). But they agree that not all dogs are bad (Courage). And unlike some of the others, the lesbian metaphor is clear to all those who know what a lesbian is. It was a very good episode and had some pretty decent scenes in it, like the train climax at the end. My appreciation for Cartoon Network grows everyday.

^ yeah i saw that episode and it was ok.
Courage sometimes scares me in that i think the show is someimes too dark for cartoonnetwork. By the way i love cartoonnetwork! I love all the little jokes they stick into ads and there shows, one of my favourites is an ad for MoJo JoJo and at the end they have a picture of him as the ace of spades ala Suddamn Hussain when he americans were handing out playing cards to the military.

CARTOON NETWORK ROCKS THE HOUSE!  One of the best stations wheter ur a kid or not  smile

DISNEY CHANNEL- ONE OF THE WORST STATIONS!  I love classic Disney like Lion King (gr8 movie, still!) but I HATE HATE HATE the Disney channel.  I love how the Simpsons make fun of it!  That Proud show is racisit!  I think Disney is even worse, or at least as bad as Fox.  Only bcause I do like some fox shows.

I wouldn't say it's too dark, but I must agree it is getting pretty scary. They are good episodes, I must say, but they have to go back to things like that Outer Space Chicken...

The Proud Family is an okay show, but I can see where people would consider it racist.  I remember watching it with my sister about a year ago and someone got called a "bee-yatch" and I kinda blinked and asked, "Am I really watching the Disney Channel?"

I would have found Courage The Cowardly Dog seriously frightening as a child, as I can watch it now and find it slightly unnerving*. But as no children actually watch Cartoon Network (it's the domain of teens and twentysomethings - in other words, the student years) it's fine.

Note: Claim not actually backed up by facts. *As a gauge, SXD is also scared of Gaffer Tape and moths.

Does anyone remember the animated film Bebe's Kids?  I loved it in my youth, but saw a bit the other day and was amazed at how adult it was.  (Also, how bad the animation was, but that's another story.)

Bebe's Kids is the only PG-13 cartoon I remember that was widely released in theaters.

And wasnt' "Cool World" rated PG-13, too? I know it was pretty darn bad, but I didn't think it was worthy of an R.

Yes, yes it was.  "Cool World" is an incredibly odd, non-sensical movie that I happen to like a lot.  big grin   Prolly doesn't deserve an R-rating, but I think I could've gone without seeing a cartoon Kim Basinger have sex with Gabriel Byrne.  no no
However, I personally really like it and hopefully someday it will be on DVD in all its raunchy glory.
On a side-note, did anyone else feel "Monkeybone" was quite similiar to "Cool World" and wasn't marketed very well?  I really like both films, but the main plots are alike.

I was watching Kenshin the other day,and while it isn't really a kid show,it was on CN's Toonami,which means they should be edited. Anyway one guy (i forgot his name) couldn't do something and he yelled Dammit! I think they tryed to edit it out because it skipped before and after he said it,and accidentally let it go on.

Yep I sometimes watch the CN Kenshin and I am amazed what slips through.

Just watched the newest episode of Grim, it is slowly getting better, they had a nice zombie episode with lots of zombies being choped up and violently destroyed only to go back together to make a massive creature made up of undead. Still no Discworld refrances but some nice Evil Dead and Dead Alive refrances. Glad they split up Grim and Evil, I never saw anyone who liked both of them.

Crotch-hitting has been a strong part of cartoons since the Loony Toons were at their peak. I fear the day when no cartoon is struck in a painfully hilarious way in the crotch.
Anyway, does anybody remember a show called "Aggghh! Real Monsters"? That show had a stuffed Duckman doll in a baby's crib in one episode (Not sure if that counts) and I once saw a blow-up doll in the sewers once. There was lots of nasty stuff in the sewers in that show. Mainly fecal matter.

I think it's important to have more adult jokes in kids cartoons because it gives them a longer life span and a bigger audience. If a joke is un suitable for young children the truth is they won't understand it anyway so no harm done, it just means older viewers can apprieciate it more. The Simpsons is probably the best example, it just gets funnier the older you get.

I'd also like to say that although I like more unconventional animated shows like Futurama, The Simpsons, Spongebob, and The Powerpuff Girls. That Courage the Cowardly Dog show is just too odd! If it had been on when I was younger I would probably have been scared to death. Even now I find it quite disturbing. Maybe the show has a fan base, but I can't think what kind of people would enjoy it! Does anyone know if that show has a strong following? Because it's certainly an aquired taste.
