I think there are far too many protective parents and protocals these days.
When I was a kid my parents and guardians (family and friends) allowed me to watch damn near anything.
My mind was open and I still drag it around behind me, collecting and discerning... My parents we're good at their job and that is more important than banning a cartoon coz it's violent or whatever.
I watched the chucky movies and nightmare on elm street, friday 13th, all while I was, what, about 5 or so. One memory that stuck with me more than those was a cartoon of the Headless Horsemen, that was scary, but I would never wonder into forests at night after that! I also remember watching the claymation in the OP when I was younger (watched it again last year, was brought up in another thread), and getting a 'weird' feeling from it, but Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Oliver Twist probably lead to more nightmares! I turned out ok I think... this is not to say go and sit your little ones down to porn and violence, not at all. There are surely limits, but if you can't explain and help them to understand right from wrong, and they're not exposed to what is wrong and right, learning and understanding are hindered.
It's always the same these days, more and more parents seem to fit the mold of Kyle's mom's character from South Park... moan about how society is growing your children instead of actually taking personal liability and being a responsible parent. Life is not all roses and it should not be thought as such in our formative years.
meh, and so ends my mello rant

That's some bizarre stuff right there. I never saw this as a kid (maybe I'm too old-didn't notice when this was aired), but I remember watching Gumby and that was creepy enough for me.

I remember this animation, I saw it when I was young....No wonder I'm so screwed up. Some things that I watched as a child have stayed with me until this day. Like the Raggidy Ann and Andy movie, that was pretty damn creepy as well.

Wow, scary beautifull indeed. I can´t believe I never saw that before, although I´m not from America.
Amazing how it touches my views on existence, and that for a kids cartoon, I mean this is deep existencial philosophy.
Thanks for posting.
