Do you remember those early Saturday mornings getting up and rushing to the living room just to watch kid friendly cartoons? Remember those times where the character was saying something but then your parents or older siblings just started laughing out of nowhere? Some people think that children's cartoons are fun and harmless, but some contain inappropriate and dangerous hidden content. Most cartoon animations are separated by the rating because of the type of content the show contains. To begin with, there are studies that show that no matter the rating or how kid-friendly the show is, there are instant sparks of inappropriate content.
Jimmy Smith grabs for the Coke zero sugar and the Doritos reduced fat chips thinking that they are a good option. After that Jimmy sits down on his Superhero Bob blanket and watches The Galaxy Rangers. You may think that Jimmy Smith is a couch potato but really he is just another victim of advertising across the nation. Companies are becoming savage monsters tearing through our children's future just to get money by putting up advertisements; advertisements are at school, on buses, in the stores, and on television. There are huge problems related to juveniles viewing advertisements almost the whole day such as, youth are getting more and more health problems because of advertisers, kids and families are spending so much money for fundraisers to get cheap toys and they do not have money for college, plus young children are losing imagination and interest in games and outdoor
Karen Hollinger is a professor of English at Atlantic University, an author and is also a very strong feminist. Hollinger’s essay, “The Monster as Woman: Two Generations of Cat People,” is an essay merely expressing how most monsters in novels or films are characterized as masculine identities and that viewers forget how powerful feminine identities in novels and films can be. Hollinger’s goal in this essay is to explain that feminine monsters are just as frightening all masculine monsters. She uses many references to movies with feminine monsters and expresses how powerful they are compared to masculine monsters and also expresses that males and females have castration anxieties. I think Hollinger succeeded in a sophisticated way because she
The enemy of the hero is the villain. The villain is the one who is in a bad side and pertains negative acts to the story. With the popularity of a comic book superhero adaptation, many audiences, teen, children and adults can watch it at home or in the cinema. It usually contains scenes and acts that can be bad for audiences. Few comic book movies are R-rated but young audiences can still view it at home or can download it on the internet.
Homer must battle his way through a series of obstacles with his newfound guides to find his love, captured by the evil Circe. The cartoon follows a typical progression one would expect from a children’s TV show: the heroes are courageous, resourceful, and “good” through and through. The “bad guy” is evil, irredeemable, and falls flat as a static character. The purpose of the show, however, is not necessarily to showcase the makings of a fully developed literary character – rather, it rehashes the notion of the journey and coming into one’s own. It is the quintessential bildungsroman, shrunk to

Using a cause and effect format, Cohen introduces the negative effects adults with an unhealthy lifestyle have on children. Cohen shows the soda machine that includes the words, “Soda ban!” (Cohen), on it to show how even though children are not allowed to drink soft drinks, the adults are. Since adults are allowed to drink sodas in front of the children, this may lead the children to believe they are in trouble or inferior to the adults. Allowing adults to keep leading a poor example may also lead to the children resorting to other methods in order to get soda. Cohen includes an image of a bigger, less healthy, looking child who appears to be selling sodas in order to show that children will find other ways of getting the items that are banned.
So far and so, even personas in the cartoons children watch are so definitive. The distinction created between the types of cartoons boys are “supposed” to watch and girls are supposed to is so great that men who want to watch cartoons like Barbie have to do it in secrecy. As goes for expression, they have to do everything that deviates from the norm in secrecy. Whether it is liking a boy band or closet homosexuality, the emotions and actions the culture of masculinity restricts is far too great. It’s too austere.
(G) This tactic allows for the government to carry on with their terrible ways because those that should have their eyes open to the unjust are being forced to have them shut. Another handicap that Vonnegut uses as symbolism is Harrison’s facial handicaps that the government tries to use as a cover up. The news anchor puts up a picture of Harrison on the television with all his features covered by the government that, “required that he wear at all time a red rubber ball for a nose, keep his eyebrows shaved off, and cover his even white teeth with a snaggle-tooth” (4).
