Did you know that cartoons were originally created for adults? They were reportedly created for adults as a filler before featured films or to promote music, as was the case when Warner Bros. launched Looney Tunes in 1930.
Many studies have highlighted the potential negative impact of cartoons on children but it is a widely held belief that cartoons are not to be taken seriously. Should we reconsider that sentiment for these listed below?
Herbert the Pervert
To be fair, Family Guy is considered an adult animation, however there is no room for humor when it comes to pedophilia. Herbert from Family Guy is a pedophile. An old man who likes to take advantage of young boys, likes to smell their underwear, write songs about young boys and basically lives for the next sexual thrill. Every single scene he’s ever been in on Family Guy has a common punchline theme: Herbert wants to have sex with little boys.
It would be tolerable if Herbert was ever punished for his reprehensible behavior.
