Early cartoons were often very un-p.c. for sure but not necessarily racist. People were products of their time. We’re far too quick to label everything “hate.” Fifty years from now, ideologues will be nitpicking at the cartoons that are made today for not being in line with modern ideas and saying our generation was unenlightened and insensitive to this group or that group.


The 90’s cartoons were my favorite… Duck Tale, Rescue Rangers, Talespin, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Thundercats etc…

interactive kids ballet!? man, that sounds painful. these vintage cartoons are pretty strange now, there’s subtle racist undertones throughout them. Everytime they show these free things i kinda cringe a little. theyre a little creepy now.
