Classic Cartoons That Shaped Our Culture
On this episode of the Christopher Scott Talk Show Podcast:
Do you remember old school cartoons? I'm talking about 70's era cartoons. I remember watching cartoons on Saturday mornings and after school. My question is how did those cartoons shape our culture? I'll bet you've never thought about that. And, how's it different now? We don't even have cartoons any more. Not really. I guess there's the cartoon network. Everything now, it's a lot different.
You won't see Captain Cave man smacking somebody over the head with a club. That's not allowed. Kids can play violent video games but not a cartoon. And, Road Runner - absolutely not. That was downright violent. It was more violent than the 3 stooges. Burning the Coyote, dropping bricks on his head. Tricking him so he ran head first into walls. It was tragic. How did we ever survive all that violence?
Don't tell me I'm crazy for suggesting cartoons shaped our culture do you remember it's just a bill? That was school house rock, the cartoons were about topics like grammar, science, economics, history, mathematics, and civics. How boring! They weren't boring at least not for weird kids like me I guess. Tell me those cartoons didn't shape our culture..
So what are we talking about here, I'm asking if cartoons shaped the culture of the country. Kids are impressionable. Where there lessons hidden in those cartoons that made us the savage, freedom loving monsters we are today?
The stuff In those cartoons wasn't just the science and politics stuff of school house rock. There was one major element I'll bet you didn't even notice and wouldn't remember unless I spell it out for you. Classical music but, it goes a lot deeper than that.
So hit the play button!
