Yeah they are

But take a look back at Tom and Jerry, the Roadrunner vs Coyote, and all those "old school" cartoons. They were blowing each other into smitherines. chopping each other up, and shooting each other. Violence in cartoons hasn't changed, it's just evolved.

Not really, unless you're comparing them to the super squeaky-Disney-cleanness of the 70s/80s. Earlier cartoons like Looney Toons, (Snow white had a hunter with a knife, Fox and the hound had an old man with a musket firing at an old lady in her car) and newer ones (Lilo and Stitch had Lilo punch another kid) all had violence depicted. It's getting more realistic, but I don't think it's increasing one way or another.

Absolutely. Overall that is. The ones on Nikelodeon aren't that bad, but as for all these others. They actually show blood oozing out of dead bodies and all that gore. Its pretty bad. And don't even get me started on video games.

What the hell are you talking about? The example in the picture is from the eighties.

I watch anime, I can't comment.
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 5/10/03 - 6:33:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
lol you guys haven't watched proper anime or manga.. you should see 'bastard!!!!' or 'blood: the last vampire' ive seen so many decent films, tom and jerry is just 0.1% the violence of "bastard!!!!"
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 5/10/03 - 6:37:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
Ive seen Blood. Very violent. But I don't think anime movies count as cartoons. I think modern cartoons are still pretty tame.
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 5/10/03 - 6:41:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
in bastard!!!!! you have limb disemboding, impaling, decapitation, morbid progedy, mutilation of organs, senseless massacre and total dislike of humanity and non existance to the point of nihilistic and senseless homicide and brutal and meaningless RAOV.

too many ands in the sentence lol

Well, it depends on your standard for "too violent". If you're saying so violent that they cause the watcher to be likely to participate in voilent activities, there has been no study conducted that places a child in a NATURAL social situation where cartoons directly influcene violence. If you're trying to say "more violent than they have been in the past", well, that depends on your standard as well, if you're simply talking about violence overall, I'd say no; but if you're talking about realistic violence that pertains to a limited and few cartoons that would contain that sort of thing, yes, they've gotten slightly more violent. If you're just going by subjective opinion, I'd say no. I'd rather it be gorey than stupid.

raddicks: Who hasn't watched proper anime? Me?
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 5/10/03 - 7:59:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
'Too' violent, not really. They're just cartoons and even children don't often confuse them for real life or acceptable actions. Why can't you people just watch tv and laugh??
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 5/11/03 - 10:25:12 AM EST (GMT-5)
nope kaneda, just people who think tom and jerry are violent etc
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 5/11/03 - 4:56:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's more the 'adult cartoons' that are bad on the gore and violence, like The Simpsons and South Park.

Rad: Bastard! Isn't aimed at Children.
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 5/11/03 - 5:07:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
Cartoons in the past were violent. Cartoons today seem much less intelligent.
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 5/11/03 - 5:42:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
The example in the picture is from Quest for Camelot, produced by Warner Brothers in 1998. It's not from the 80s.

bastard isn't a children's cartoon though.
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 5/11/03 - 6:14:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
damn Kaneda already said it.
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 5/11/03 - 6:41:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
More important to me is why violence is so acceptable in cartoons, but sexually suggestive material is not.
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 5/11/03 - 7:15:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
Depends on which country you live in, veraaumer. The US is funny about sex and alcohol, but okay with violence and driving, just look at hollywood productions and the simpsons. Sexually suggestive material is fine in Japanese animations (US releases of anime are usually edited versions) and UK advertisements.

If they weren't violent, who would watch them???
19 yrs ago - Thursday 6/12/03 - 3:21:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, i agree that the violence in cartoons today has escalated.
19 yrs ago - Thursday 6/12/03 - 3:43:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
drat anyone who blames anything but themselves for their actions. It's BS.
