I think maybe we should clarify what is meant by "kid" and "children"

I was coming across similiar subjects through books when I was around 10 years old and I turned out relatively fine. Any younger than that and kids likely wouldn't even understand what is going on, let alone be traumatized by it. Especially with kids these days and all the horrible things available elsewhere on TV.

That is exactly what I think! I couldn't have said it better... People are so sensitive nowadays and the pathetic thing is that nothing makes up for that sensitivity. Not intelligence, not creativity, not even common sense. The masses nowadays are basically 100% full skimmed wusses.

I saw this as a kid in the 80's. It didn't scare me and I didn't see it anything other then a "cartoon". Seriously, it's not a big deal. Don't like it = Don't watch it.

When you look at it that way you are correct.. I agree with you, But I still find it disturbing none the less as most kids would look at this and start questioning life.. Which could be either a good, or bad thing..

I don't agree with it being pushed towards kids period. I could see a TV 14 rating..But this is not your ordinary Saturday morning cartoon guys..

Definetly not your "ordinary" cartoon. Most cartoons these days are complete and utter crap though.

It's okay when it's in a books because nobody reads.

Once it's on TV people freak out because their little couch world is being invaded.

I can't see this on mobile but am I right that this is that like 30 year old Twain claymation thing that was never intended for kids anyway?

The whole thing is a stupid non-issue. You don't want to watch it don't. Don't want your kids watching it then be a parent.

I saw it as a kid. Watched it a few times I think. I thought it was very fun and pretty insightful.

But then I also read as a kid so these concepts weren't shocking new or extreme.

When did people lose touch with the abstract? For all of our access to art, literature and global experiences we seem more rigid, literal and cold now than we were when I was growing up.

I wonder if Pee Wee's Playhouse woukd be permitted on television today?

Each generation gets dumber and dumber.

The arrogance and ignorance of older generations never ceases to amaze me. You should talk to some young people today, on the whole they are growing up in a much darker world and know more about that world than you did at their age. Stop convincing yourself that higher learning and abstract thought stopped when you stopped going to school.

Most cartoons lack a point..Or cease to have a strong message..I guess that's why it was such a shock to me to see this in a cartoon..

Something I just thought of, maybe it would be better to compare it to some fairy tales in their original form. There's really a lot of gruesome stuff there and they were meant for kids. Wolves eating people, poisoned apples, people cutting off parts of their feet to fit in a glass show and if I remember correctly, sleeping beauty is raped in her sleep in the original (un-disneyfied) version.

Hmm...I remember liking " deep " cartoons when I was a kid. Or...more sophisticated cartoons...like " The last unicorn " for example...I think more cartoons should be like that. Kids can handle it. Did I just say cartoons 3 times?...cartoons.

I saw this when I was a kid. I thought it was weird but I was weird so it didn't really bother me. To be honest I only remember seeing it briefly because I switched channels. I saw it years later when I was a teenager and thought it was real imaginary and cool. I think if your'e a strong religious person you might think that this 'cartoon' is secular and attempting to change your children. The reality is this isn't a cartoon. It shouldn't be marketed to children. If it was, I'm ashamed that it was. But I don't think its creators were trying to brainwash your kids.

Sorry dude... It's a fact that everything from music, to TV, to food, to education is 100% crappier compared to the 80's for instance. I mean just look around. In the 80's we had true metal (anthrax, exodus, metallica, sh** I can name you gigatons of excellent bands, we had true pop (with actual meaning other than t*ts and a$$), we had good rap & hip hop (with actual creativity put into lyrics and beats, and not just talking about how much money and chicks I get to f***, and without the electronic voice that hides mistakes), TV was way better ( I don't need to name you all the awesome and original series and movies that came out in the 80's ( nowadays you are lucky if you get 2 original movies in 2 years, everything is either crap or freakin' remakes), education was way better in the 80's ( people were much less rude and respected diversity, hell diversity is what the 80's was all about!) There was no genre that dominated the mainstream back in the days man... and dude I don't even want to get started on the food man... it was just so awesome bro!

I'm 20 years old and I feel like I'm going freaking mad, man... I wish I had a time machine... First place I'm going is Seattle 89.

My mom wouldn't let us watch the wizard of oz because it had witches in it. We couldn't watch dungeons and dragons because it had magic. So obviously if my mom had known about this she never would have allowed me to even see it briefly back then. But she died and so when I saw it as a teenager she wasn't there to shut the tv off. I don't remember it very well. I saw horror movies and lots of other garbage while growing up. I saw much worse going on. Teenagers talk about the sickest things you can imagine. This 'cartoon' is rocket science by comparison.

I mean this is philosophy not some sh** chainsaw massacre or porn show like teens want. I think if a anybody is stunned by this then they've been asleep for a long time.

Welcome to philosophy. Life without a god to watch over you is uncertain and uncharted. Of course it's scary! And if you look in shadows you might find monsters. It's part of the journey.

HA, Good point you got there!.. Let's not forget about children being lured into a house made out of candy and then cooked and eating..

What's dark about it?

Any problems there are are either petty and insignificant or they are the same problems every generation has with a different face.

Is it the war(s)? Must be real hard going to the mall everyday. Cant say the last time I saw a ration line or a rooftop garden that grew something that wasnt decorative.

We got kids out collecting aluminum foil for the "cause"? We got entire graduating classes dying face down in French dirt?

The only troubles I see affecting the youth are petty social dramas and the occasional suffering due to a temporary lack of instant gratification.

They're soft and stupid. The mere fact that they have time to be worried about whatever it is they are worried about is proof enough. Maybe if they understood half of the gadgets they are addicted to I could agree they arent stupid but 90% of them have no clue about anything technical. All they know is how to post to a forum or make a YouTube video or consume some other hand-holding product or convenience because it's all they could manage.

And while some build networks, solder chips, write operating systems etc... the majority uses some ready made studio software to cut a segment from a clip before they post and think they're some hot tech genius for doing so. They can make toast but they can't bake bread.

I agree. If Disney actually followed the original stories they would be a totally different company. No one would be happy when Arial dies. Not to mention the original Brothers Grimm stories. Boy, Mother Goose would never be read to children as bed time stories. But, we must also remember that those were different times and stories were used to help children understand the dangers in the world. ie: "Ring around the rosie(white ring around a red infection) pocket full of posies(posies used to differ the smell) ashes ashes(the burning of bodies) we all fall down(everyone dies)". Or the other three verses of itsy bitsy spider.
