True you know when you get down to the bottom line today's cartoons are far more stereotypical than the classics were ever.

I'm very surprised to hear this, because all my great-nephew and others in his age group seem to talk about are SpongeBob SquarePants, superhero TV series and anime (especially anime). Well, I'm relieved to hear that Looney Tunes isn't a lost cause.

Not true.

I grew up with all of the old animated shorts (Tom and Jerry, Looney Tunes, etc.). I never, ever, ever was exposed to any of their more racist and sexist cartoons or told that they shouldn't be watched because of that. The reason why is that those cartoons disappeared from the public eye and were never shown on TV (as far as I remember).

This issue you're talking about was instigated by racists and anti-PC/SJW warriors on YouTube. Until YouTube, no one knew about these racist and stereotypical cartoons. They were obscure. Then people discovered them and started putting out DVD compilations of them in so-called "banned cartoons" collections. White supremacists and culture warriors ripped the DVDs, started posting the cartoons in droves on YouTube to make a point of how "evil" and "wrong" SJW/PC culture is and how we were all "kept" from these brilliant cartoons "censored" by PC culture. As a result, these shorts became over represented on YouTube, and now a younger generation thinks that this kind of stuff...




...is all there was to them.

I guess the point I'm trying to make is that you're implying that maybe the media brainwashed everyone into hating these cartoons due to PC. That's not what happened. These racist and sexist cartoons were 100% obscure until racists and anti-PC warriors uploaded them online.

To be honest I watched a lot of Spongebob too. I love Looney Tunes but I would say Spongebob had a bigger impact on me and occasionally I still watch it today.

I'd actually say Spongebob is the answer to the OP's question. I don't think any other cartoon has a larger or more widespread cultural impact on this generation.

The Racist/Sexist cartoons disappeared in the late 60's. Many of the minorities who saw these cartoons...as well as the non-WASP Europeans (Italians, Jewish, Polish, etc.) KNEW that these cartoons and shows existed, but could care less because they knew they were better than the stereotypes!

Though I have Italian blood, I actually laugh at a few of the Italian stereotypes in cartoons, "Porky's Garden" has an Italian neighbor and you can't more stereotypical than that...and I won't doubt that cartoon will be removed because it makes-fun of the Italian-American community....

And the whole irony is that racial ethnic and regional stereotypes in cartoons still exist today as well as sexism.
