I Hate Cartoons… How is it that a 3 year old can watch the same DVD 12 times in a row? I swear to God if I hear the theme music to Disney’s “Cars” one more time I’ll rip my own brain out with salad tongs.
Cartoons Make You Crazy
A cartoon is a form of two-dimensional illustrated visual art. While the specific definition has changed over time, modern usage refers to a typically non-realistic or semi-realistic (You know… Like an Acid trip) drawing or painting intended for satire, caricature, or humor. Cartoons as in animated films are created by showing illustrated images in rapid succession to give the impression of movement.
I’m reasonably certain that cartoons caused a great deal of my mental illness… As a mater of fact I’m pretty sure it was the cartoons that caused my PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) because the one sure fire way to get me to the verge coming unscrewed is to turn on the Saturday morning cartoons.
Recently there have been studies on the effects of cartoons on the psyche
Some children’s television shows may be bad for young kid’s brains according to a new study about watching cartoons. It appears that children may not concentrate and focus very well after watching fast-paced programming.
Researchers from the University of Virginia showed 60 4-year olds a 9-minute chunk of what they call an “animated kitchen sponge” cartoon. The experts then tested the children’s memory and thinking skills and compared their scores to other youngsters, who had watched a slow-paced educational cartoon or drew pictures with crayons and markers.
The pre-schoolers who watched the fast-paced shows did much worse on the thinking tests than those in the two other groups, who scored about the same. The researchers suspect that the brain gets overtaxed or tired from all of the stimulation from the fast-paced cartoons leading to lower scores.

But honestly… Did we really need the University of Virginia to tell us this?
Popeye Screwed Me Up
I clearly remember absolutely believing a can of spinach could be opened using a corncob pipe like a blow torch and then eating that slop by squeezing the can like a tube of toothpaste would give you magical powers to knock the snot out of the biggest meanest sombitch ever… And then there was Olive Oil… I still have this thing for rail thin girls with dark hair a squeaky voice.
Ever wonder how the term “looney tunes” came to be a noun for describing a person’s lack of mental health? … Kind of obvious don’t you think. The Road Runner, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck… how distorted can reality get? All these cartoon characters, hell bent on killing each other in every imaginable way as ACME supplied all manor of implements of destruction for them to do this with.
Disney Cartoons Are Way Messed Up
I’d have to say that the sickest cartoons by far come out of the Disney Studios… Bringing you weird twisted $h1t for almost 100 years… Besides being just plain whacked Disney features and shorts are full of subliminal messages and hidden erotica… No kidding… Go do a Google search on “Disney Subliminal Messages” and you just won’t believe the $h1t you are going to see.
This is the stuff we have sit our kids down in front of for at least 3 generations and then we wonder why the world is insane… Regardless of all the weird subliminal crap… Just watch :
“Steam Boat Willie (1928) – Mickey Mouse, piloting a steamboat, delights his passenger, Minnie Mouse, by making musical instruments out of the menagerie on deck.”
… And then tell me this isn’t just like a bad acid trip.
