    You want nostalgia? Here it is.
    (Some of you may remember this from a video I made long ago.)

    UPA's The Dick Tracy Show had Go-Go Gomez and Joe Jitsu, two characters that by today's standards would be considered negative ethnic portrayals...

    Quite a number of 1940's Bugs Bunny cartoons are either no longer shown or presented in edited form due to their negative portrayal of characters as outdated stereotypes: All This and Rabbit Stew and Hiawatha's Rabbit Hunt (1941), Fresh Hare (1942) with the minstrel show number being edited out; Bugs Bunny Nips the Nips (1944) and Herr Meets Hare (1945) are no longer shown because of outdated WWII references, and A Feather In His Hare (1948), where the Indian's voice (an uncredited Michael Maltese) appears to slightly resemble Joe Besser's characteristic voice.

    Thanks. To be honest there are things in that video I'd forgotten about even watching. If i would have made that same type of video today it wouldn't have things like Katie and Orby in it.

    Earlier in the thread Face was mentioned from Nick Jr. Does anyone remember two other animations they played? One was an animated fly, and they followed her around (like a gopro except...not because it was 1994/7) places like farms? Also there was another series where two hands turned into a man and woman, and one of them had them planting seeds?

    Okay, three movies: The Lion King
    Land Before Time
    The Aristocats
    We had VHS of all of those movies, and we used to watch them so much that I actually remember every scene and every line from each of them.

    For just one little pea, he looks as though he's trying to chew half a steak.

    Seriously. While I don't know exactly where they're taking it, the message they're making is clear and one I've been making for years.

    Nostalgia is potentially evil. At best, it gets us to buy T-shirts and either want to see or get ticked off by or both reboots and remakes. As a cash in it's harmless, just gets us disappointed at worst. Other than that, it can and has been used as a weapon. And I'm not going into that rant, but things were never as rosey as they were when you were younger because you were a kid. And as a kid, you had no responsibilities.

    Speaking of Digimon (which I put on my childhood shows list), I'm going to have a Digimon Game Night and play two of the old school Digimon games tonight, :D.
