In 1980’s, cartoons became very popular in televisions. Various cartoon shows hit the attention of so many kids. However, some of these cartoon shows brought messages which gave wrong perception to children viewers. Here are the top 10 cartoon shows that teach kids in the 80’s.
1. You might have a long lost sibling out there that you might want to hook up with.
I think it’s safe to say that He-Man and She-Ra were the original Jaime and Cersei Lannister. And don’t act like you didn’t ship it. [Via]
2. Gun Battles Cannot Harm Anybody.
For as many battles as the G.I. Joe Team got in with Cobra Command, no one ever seemed to get wounded. Maybe the fact that they were such bad marksmen was the reason they could never take down Cobra? [Via]
3. It’s alright that your boyfriend cheats on you.
Strangely, Jerrica never seemed to have much of an issue that her boyfriend, Rio, was having an affair with her alter-ego Jem. [Via]
4. Always help solving a crime whenever it happens.
The Rescue Rangers were always snooping in on the police and taking on cases that probably should’ve been handled by actual law enforcement — or at least professional rodent law enforcement. [Via]
5. Being the only woman in a situation, high chances of harassment is expected.
Poor Smurfette, those perpetually horny Smurfs seemed to never give her a second to breathe. [Via]
6. Hurting someone for love is reasonable.
Seriously, that Care Bear stare was NO JOKE. The Care Bears might have seemed like cuddly harmless creatures, but they weren’t above taking you down. [Via]
7. Showing cruelty and mistreating less fortunate people is an action rewarded for being a very-rich teenager.
Beverly Hills Teens was perfectly suited for the ’80s, the decade of excess. The show featured rich spoiled teenagers that in between attending high school, spent all their time living a Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous wet dream. Of course the show’s true star was Bianca Dupree, who was the series’ resident villain who used her money to scheme against her friends and be cruel to her chauffeur Wilshire. [Via]
8. Terrorizing senior citizens is absolutely okay.
Poor retired Mr. Wilson, he just wanted to live a peaceful quite life, but Dennis and his gang felt the need to torment him. And even worse, Dennis’ parents seemed perfectly cool with that. [Via]
9. You should strive to be irresponsible and constantly stoned.
Those Fraggles were just bone lazy, and they did nothing but lay around, have the munchies, and share in each others trippy dreams. [Via]
On second thought, those hippie Fraggles were onto something. [Via]
10. Nothing is above than Money.
Sure, Scrooge McDuck had a rather large extended family, he was even raising his three grandnephews, Huey, Dewey, and Louie. But what he seemed to care for the most was his vast fortune and his Number One Dime. [Via]
