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.

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.

What about offensive episode like One Coarse Meal, that reserve to be censored.

And that's one reason why Dragon Ball Z Kai was not well received in America

I hate how parents get their underwear in a wad and go fuss to the companies about something 'offensive' in a cartoon... 

Like that thing about Derpy Hooves being offensive... :iconwthplz:

Those parents didn't even look up the meaning of 'derp'.

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!
