It is quite common nowadays o have sequels to movies loved by the audience, what is not common is to have the third movie of a series  be the best movie out of the whole series and as some may say, the best movie ever.

Controversial Film and Television Cartoons Throughout History

There is nothing like a TV cartoon for some good, harmless fun.

Eh, apart from all the racist, sexist disgusting stuff that goes on. What do you mean you never noticed? The following are some of the most controversial film and television cartoons ever made.   

South Park

Controversial Film and Television Cartoons

Of course, South Park is a cartoon that sets out to shock and offend. It does a good job and regularly gets righteous folks up in arms and foaming at the mouth. There is even a Wikipedia page for South Park Controversies, with interesting sections covering Racism, Vulgarity, Mexican Flag and Scientology. Mexicans and scientologists might not agree but the show´s biggest controversy was probably triggered by their depiction of the Muslim Prophet Muhammad.

Bugs Bunny

Controversial Film and Television Cartoons

From South Park to Bugs Bunny is a mighty leap but how could our loveable buck toothed rabbit buddy possibly have upset anyone other than Elmer Fudd? Perhaps the most famously controversial episode was Bugs Bunny Nips the Nips, in which the racist rabbit insults Japanese soldiers before killing them in hilariously comedic ways. There is also a group of Loony Tunes and Merrie Melodies episodes known as the Censored Eleven which includes All This And Rabbit Stew. This episode is banned because of its racial stereotyping of an African American hunter outwitted by Bugs.   

Coal White and de Sebben Dwarfs

Controversial Film and Television Cartoons

Another controversial cartoon on the Censored Eleven list is this weird jazz version of Snow White. Some critics think that it is a classic while others are deeply offended at what they see as racist undertones. The long term controversy means that relatively few people have seen it.

Donald Duck

Controversial Film and Television Cartoons

How the Donald Duck can this be controversial when you can´t understand a bloody word he says? Well, the episode called Der Fuhrer´s Face did a good job of upsetting a lot of people. It features the cheeky duck making fun of Hitler but also featured racial stereotyping of the Japanese and a bit of gay-bashing. Der Fuhrer´s Face has been voted as one of the best cartoons of all time but it is definitely one that splits opinions. 

Ren and Stimpy

Controversial Film and Television Cartoons

Perhaps the most blatant and disturbing act of cartoon violence came in the infamous boat oar beating episode of Ren and Stimpy. The violence on show in the episode was so brutal and over the top that the bastions of decency at Nickelodeon refused to air it and sacked the sick dude who created it. 

Song of the South

Controversial Film and Television Cartoons

You almost certainly know the song zip-a-dee-doo-dah. Feel free to sing it merrily for a few seconds while I gently tap my fingers on the keyboard. Ok, now that´s out of your system let´s ponder why you are probably a sick racist beast for singing it. Song of the South was probably Disney´s most controversial film, with a ridiculously stereotyped and casually racist approach to the question of slavery. It has never been aired on television and that is unlikely to chance any time soon.

Scooby Doo

Controversial Film and Television Cartoons

Sure, those Scooby snacks look like drugs to me but that´s not the controversy in question today. Instead, we will look at how the delightful Daphne was cursed into becoming a – gasp! – size 8. This happens in the Frankencreepy episode which I assume takes place in an abandoned fairground or spooky castle. The fat shaming scandal it caused has overshadowed the real controversy about Scooby Doo; who the Hell ever thought that adding Scrappy Doo was a good idea?

6 Movies and TV Villains That Are More Likeable Than the Heroes

Why is it that so many movies and TV series want us to believe in a black and white world where the evil characters have no redeeming features?

The truth is that many famous villains are actually more likeable than the heroes if you take the time to understand them. 

The Wicked Witch of the West – Wizard of Oz

The Wicked Witch of the West – Wizard of Oz

This poor lady is probably one of the most misunderstood film characters in history. She is portrayed as such sort of cackling, hideous fiend. Yet, all she is trying to do in the Wizard of Oz is reclaim a family possession. You see, the evil Dorothy kills her sister, The Wicked Witch of the East. She does this through the unconventional murdering technique of landing a house on her. The brazen little hussy from Kansas then steals the dearly departed witch´s ruby slippers. Our friend the witch just wants to claim her inheritance.   

Wile E. Coyote – Roadrunner Cartoons

Wile E. Coyote – Roadrunner Cartoons

Is it just me or does anyone else sit there willing the coyote to finally win the battle and stuff that horrible roadrunner into his Acme Corporation microwave? The poor little dude lives in a barren desert and his only chance of staving off potentially life threatening hunger is to act like the predator he is. Despite his creative genius and admirable work ethic, the coyote is usually let down by his ingenious traps. 

Frankenstein´s Monster – Frankenstein

Frankenstein´s Monster – Frankenstein

Who do you think is the villain in the Frankenstein movies? It surely couldn´t be the hapless sap who got stitched together out of dead people and then finds that the whole world hates him because he´s ugly and walks funny. To be fair, the original book makes it clear that the monster is a decent chap who just happens to be a terrifying look freak. If there is a real villain it is the mentally unstable, unethical scientist who brings him to life.   

Scar – The Lion King

Scar – The Lion King

If they had just given him half a chance then Scar would have been a far better ruler than stupid old Musafa and that young wiper snapper lion. Cleverly, he realized that the circle of life has to involve more than just lions, while his despotic predecessor kicked out the hyenas in a strangely racist forced migration policy. 

The Matrix – The Matrix Series

The Matrix – The Matrix Series

Are the humans the good guys in the Matrix or the evil yet nattily attired ones? If you are human then you probably think that your fellow species is in the right in this movie series. Having said that, how does this whole sorry situation develop in the first place? What´s that; the sons of Adam made robots and then basically enslaved them so that they did all the naff stuff that people were too good for? Hmm, and following their righteous uprising the robots very kindly left the homo sapiens in a delightful fantasy world?

Shere Khan- Jungle Book

Shere Khan- Jungle Book

Let´s face it; this geezer was one shrewd operator. Clearly the ravenous, carnivorous part of him just wanted to eat some human flesh. That´s, like, what carnivores do. If Disney was run by cows then you would be the villain for popping that juicy big hamburger onto your grill every day. The other impressive aspect of Shere Khan is that he realized that the arrival of a man-cub would inevitably upset the delicate jungle eco-system. Mowgli was probably already planning to chop down hundreds of tree and drill for oil. Even if he wasn´t, the boy has no place in the jungle but the tiger does.
