I found the clip of the rebooted Powerpuff Girls clip I discussed last week on the animation news site Cartoon Brew. If you want to find a complete antithesis of everything this blog is about, take a look at most of the typical comments on their articles. Typical comments on Cartoon Brew are often reactionary or aggressively apolitical. For example, the type of comment you’ll run across is something to the effect of “It’s just a cartoon, who cares?” I don’t want to sound like a jerk, but I shudder to think the fate of animation would be in the hands of such thoughtless and incurious thinking.
Readers of this blog, if there is anything I hope to have gotten across to you, it is that no type of media exists in a vacuum. Everything has a quote-unquote “political agenda” whether it intends to have one or not or regardless of how much it tries not to have one.
