Cartoons and dress code!
In an earlier post “My Friend and Her Cartoon Life!” I have talked about one of my friends who was so much cartoon addicted that all the time wore dresses like cartoon princess. This post is about the dress up of the characters of the cartoon.
We have some cartoons where animal are the leading characters and most of the time they are half naked. The big examples are Donald Duck, and Pooh. I have read about a rumor in a newspaper a few years ago that Donald Duck was banned in Finland because of its dress code/ or short dress. Isn’t it interesting?
This is the only examples of those cartoons which are fables means main characters are animals, but what about the others, where characters are based on human?
Now I’m writing about male characters. Batman, Superman, Robin, Phantom …..who else don’t have the weird dress up? The common thing about their super hero costume is almost everyone has the same dress pattern—underwear is out of their pants! These are our super heroes and we are mad for them!! Not only this, their suits are also very popular and demandable in costume parties!!!
These cartoons are not adult cartoons. They are for our kids to encourage them to not fear the enemies and teach them how to handle the difficult situation with braveness and courage. So, if the cartoons are for kids, why their dress has designed like this? This is not the current occurrence, it has been happening from the last few decades. My question is; are we provoking our kids to watch bad things?
