Watchdog Group Says Children’s Cartoons Contain References to Pedophilia, Rape and Prostitution

Aug 17, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Cartoons that are aimed at 12-year-olds include jokes about pedophilia, rape and prostitution, use profanity and portray drug abuse as funny, the watchdog group the Parents Television Council charges, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The PTC report condemned the Disney Channel’s "Phineas and Ferb" for helping to mainstream the word "sucks," the story says. Despite that, the Disney Channel received an A from the group for its animated children’s content. Not so lucky were Adult Swim and Cartoon Network, which were both awarded F’s, the story says.

While Adult Swim is targeted to adults, the PTC says it routinely draws children as young as 12, airs in prime time and doesn’t include warnings about the content, the story says. Cartoon Network completely failed to use warning systems for sex and suggestive and crude language, the PTC charged.

The study looked at 123 episodes of animated shows that attract children, and found that adult content is featured once every 2 minutes and 19 seconds, the story says.

  1. I would like to report an anime that recently came out and promotes pedophilia openly as if its natural. The show is called Ulysses: Jehanne Darc to Renkin no Kishi. At first it seems like a regular mythical show but you soon see this disgusting relationship between an adult male and female child were they kiss and they have to to “keep the girl alive” or something of the sort. This continues throughout the show with no end. It even continues to get more weird as other characters are introduced (underaged children) with the forced ideas of love between an child and man. It continued to watch to see when this would stop and when they would correct this disgusting behavior but by episode they start showing the man thinking about falling in love with the child, at that point i just had enough and couldn’t take the disgusting crap, filth. I actually just reported it to the Japanese government in hopes that it would help them to take action on the show and its creator (Mikage Kasuga). I hope this email spurs the interest in alot of parents and anime lovers who care enough to stop this sort of behavior.
