Hi. I have seen and/or heard about and/or read about current cartoon shows being produced and being aired, on TV, online or both, and have learned about the wave of political correctness that has affected them.
In the new Looney Tunes series on HBO/Max Warner Bros. made the executive decision to strip Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam of their guns. I get they don't want to support gun use, in light of what has been going on in American society regarding guns, but what was the point of doing that when they have other weapons they can use? That makes no sense to me.
People have complained about Minerva Mink and Hello Nurse being absent from the Animaniacs
reboot, which makes sense. In this day and age you can't have female characters in a kids'/family show being the butt of a lot of sexual jokes.
They should not have dirty jokes and/or any kind of lewd content in kids' cartoons anyway.
Any kind of lewd content, including jokes and fanservice, is not politically correct for current kids' cartoons, but LGBTQIA stuff is?
Cartoon makers now think you "have" to put LBGTQIA content in current kids' cartoons, comics and other media or kids won't be interested.
In The Looney Tunes Show
from 2011 Warner Bros. made the executive decision to make the Goofy Gophers an openly gay couple.
I was wondering if Disney made any changes to any of their current cartoon shows because of political correctness. Apparently, yes they did:
Kids don't need to be indoctrinated with any form of feminist agenda.
Would you agree political correctness is RUINING pop entertainment to an extent?
There are too many daggone snowflakes in this generation and it seems like companies are trying hard to rectify the wrongs of the past. They don't want to offend anyone or morally corrupt anyone. I assume they also don't want to get in any trouble with any censors. Censorship is not really an issue if cartoons are being shown on cable/satellite TV where censorship groups like the FCC can't touch them.
What IS allowed to be shown in current cartoons, comics and other media and what ISN'T? Is there a list of what's allowed and what isn't allowed in current entertainment aimed at kids/families/general audiences somewhere online? If so, I haven't found any such list.
I am being serious. I am wondering in this age of political correctness can I even produce the cartoons and comics I have said I wanted to produce and monetize online. There ARE content creators who have been penalized for the material they showcase on YouTube, for example.
It seems like there are parties out there that want to stifle your creativity, and if you don't comply with what THEY want you'll get penalized.
There are too many advocacy groups out there now. If you're entertaining kids, in this day and age, I was told you have to appease parents and teachers.
Please help. Thank you.
