Rob Shaw: Taking a Deeper Look at Cartoon Characters of the 90s (and my take)

Rob Shaw at the HuffPo trashes some saturday morning classic cartoons, and here's my take on some of those (I never dig Freakazoid!)

Pokemon: It is still an imaginary, simple, idealistic world where animals were created to fight, but animal cruelty is severely reprimanded and discouraged. Pokemon Trainers must bond with their creatures and team up to win.

Johnny Bravo: the biggest loser. What makes an adult to keep on watching this cartoon is how innocently clueless Johnny is, because he never seems to realize how offensive for women his shtick is. His only friend is a small girl, because he has the mind of an immature child. Not to mention his surreal adventures.

Scooby-Doo: come on, everybody knows that Scrappy Doo was a huge mistake.

Cow and Chicken: one of the funniest, most surreal and avant-garde cartoons ever. Never to be taken seriously.

Dexter's Lab: poster child for skeptics and atheist-friendly fare. What's wrong with that?
