Anti-Cartoon Censorship Stamp by Sycotei-B Anti-Cartoon Censorship Stamp by Sycotei-B
I made this as an expression of opinion. I think there is too much censorship on cartoons these days. I miss the old cartoons I used to watch when I was a kid, Loony Tunes, Rocko's Modern Life, Ren & Stimpy, ect. ect. Back then, there were explosives and violence, not like today were kids are exposed to nothing but low-brow entertanment, with the main characters being hyperactive retards with side-kicks that are exactly the same. Not only that, but they censor a lot of the original anime so it's more suitable for kids, which is retarded. Kids shouldn't even be allowed to watch anime if it has that stuff in it in the first place. As for the old cartoons I watched, they need to bring that stuff back because today's cartoons suck. It's not like those old cartoons are encouraging kids to blow up their house or hit each other with a hammer. Besides, kids don't go bad just from watching t.v., there are plenty of other things that can make them worse. If the parents don't like what their kids watch, they can just turn it off and prevent them from watching it. I grew up watching the violence, explosives and the other stuff that used to be in cartoons and my life turned out just fine.

I agree with you. I know that modern cartoons had a bad reputation, but not all modern cartoons (regardless if they're for kids or adults) is bad or pandering to their target audience. Adventure Time, Rick and Morty, Star vs. The Forces of Evil, and Steven Universe are good. But I couldn't be mad any less when it comes to Nickelodeon. I grew up with that channel when I was a kid... But then... I gave up in 2011 or something. And when I look back to it, I've realized how atrocious it is.

The good cartoons suffered from their executions from Nick as the otherwise bad cartoons are praised by the company itself. The company even thought that using duck rape, abuse, and gross humor a lot is funny. It's not. And they even blandly took the advice of a non-profit organization who is against homosexuality. I don't even want to stand that.
As for anime, I couldn't find a point where anime shouldn't be watched, except if it's explicit like Panty and Stocking and that would probably make sense. But removing the anime block or banning it from this country is stupid.

I like old banned cartoons better, like the banned episode from Dexters Laboratory I've watched is the Rude Removal.

I remember when I was 10 and, one piece first aired. It was censored like crazy. There were things that shouldn't even have been censored. Like sanji's cigaret was switched with a lollipop.....

Yeah...regardless of how harmful smoking is IRL, especially as illustrated in those nightmare-inducing PSAs, in fictional media it can be considered fanservice with Sanji as a perfect example due to his apparent portrayal as a sex god for fangirls to drool over! Now I know why the term "smokin' hot" can be used to describe those characters!

Censorship, to me, is bizarre. I can get editing out certain things, but removing references to Japanese culture and religion? Changing rice balls to sandwiches and ice cream? Removing words? Getting rid of guns and replacing them with water pistols??? That and it is clear many of the people who support censorship don't actually care-they just pretend to and clearly have their own agendas at heart while claiming like they care.

Listen, idiots. If you actually cared, you would invest in teaching authorities to be competent and not idiots and would actually punish bullies so that people like me and many others can live in peace.

I never, ever wanted to hurt someone because I watched a violent cartoon. I wanted to hurt someone because they were jerks and NO ONE SEEMS TO CARE ABOUT JUSTICE!

I feel that Regular Show is falling into this. In the first few seasons, it used to be pretty raunchy, but now it's starting to become kinda generic. Worst of all, CN is starting to catch the "s" they got away with.

Courage the Cowardly Dog and Hey Arnold took on some of the really dark stuff during their time. Who remembers "The Mask", "Helga on the Couch", "Pigeon Man", "The Last of the Starmakers", "Rememberance of Courage Past", or even "Olga Gets Engaged"? Too dark for the target audience my ass.

Here, here. I have seen a couple modern cartoons that are okay, but they lack that "oomph" that cartoons had back then. Now they are seriously out of control with watering down everything. It's like, really? You really think kids are so stupid, that they would attempt to imitate some of the insane antics we have seen from cartoons of the 90's, and even the early 2000's? It not only has resulted in seriously bad quality cartoons in terms of content, and dialogue, but also is showing a great lack of faith in children using common sense, which is really insulting.

I don't blame it on cartoons so much. But I do imagine, that it might have some influence to a degree, at least in terms of taste, and the content and behaviors that are endorsed in a lot of animated media, as animated shows are a kind of "entertaining learning component" for children, at least that was how it was when I grew up, and being how children are very impressionable early in life.

Yes! Those people are like Angelica in that Rugrats episode when she convinces the babies that Chuckie is an alien from "outside space" due to her belief that having big, thick glasses, weird red hair, and a funny-sounding voice makes him seem more alien-like than a normal Earth kid.

Tell me about it! Parents should never fear their their kids will be bored out of their minds with hearing nothing but, "BLAH-BLAH-BLAH" coming out of the parents' mouths, and this is coming from someone who was regretfully bored shitless whenever she got pulled aside for parental lectures and was urged to sit still throughout them, regardless of how "free" she wanted to be!

Censorship just shows the laziness of parents.  Here's what's wrong with censorship:

Swearing = What's the big deal?  You're probably gonna hear swearing in public some time.

Violence = Well, if your kid becomes violent, it's your fault for not teaching them about it.

Nudity = You see your own genitals when you're taking a shower of bath!

Smoking = Is it really worse to see smoking on TV than get secondhand smoke in real life?  If your kid starts smoking, you failed to teach him/her about it.

Homosexuality = Being gay is not bad!  Why can't people get that?!  -.-  Your kid watches TV and turns gay (being gay might be genetic though.)  So what if that happens?  Live and let live!
