OK, but at the first sign of danger one of them has to pull a trophy on the mantle, which is actually a secret switch.

Then all their furniture will flip and turn over, revealing a room full of crime fighting equipment.

Then they'll fly out the window without using any of it.

@TheDpool - I take it you never watched Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends?
Indoorsman - 5/16/2014, 5:13 AM
@TheDpool - I can understand your confusion if you never saw the old cartoon. Netflix has them. It's pretty dated, but goofy fun.

I've watched the cartoon and it's great escapist fun. Too bad animation these days has to be injected with sexual innuendo and even politics.

People can't create comics, film, TV or movies anymore without being forced by their dicks to insert crude and useless sex undertones or jokes and politically correct nonsense.

I think some adults get off exposing their perversions to kids through animation. It's kinda like pedophilia in a way.

Entertainment is supposed to be fun. Not recruitment calls from the left to think like they do or some sicko freak exposing his sick thoughts to the world.

Spider-Man And His Amazing Friends is-was just good and simple fun without the unnecessary baggage of the thoughts and opinions of some liberal freak who helped make it.

These guys and Super-Friends along with Scooby-Doo WERE Saturday Mornings in the Late 70's-Early 80's. When Batman showed up on Scooby I just about lost my shit!

Wow that raccoon looks so familiar.
FearTheLiving - 5/16/2014, 6:11 AM
Holy shit Firestar, Iceman, & Spidey all back together again.

@Indoorsman
I remember that stuff..all the computer monitors & high tech gadgetry hidden in that room.
Not once ever used..silly but cool.
I really like the voice talent on that show also.
The theme music was great & the sound effect used to go from scene to scene is sweet.
Doopie - 5/16/2014, 6:21 AM
Thegeekygurl

can you give a few examples of the perversions you speak of? I can think of a bunch of examples were there are no crude sexual undertones or political agendas.

and are messages of any kind a bad thing for kids entertainment? I learnt loads from TV shows, movies and comics from my childhood that I wouldn't say had a 'lefty' leaning, moreover they taught me acceptance (X-Men), science and problem solving (Batman) and how to eat pizza and have a good time (the turtles)
Succthis - 5/16/2014, 6:41 AM
Is the tv show considered canon?
Thegeekygurl - 5/16/2014, 7:33 AM
@Doopie The best ever example would be Jessica Rabbit's vagina in a kid's movie.
A great example in film was innuendo of Reed Richards showing Sue he could stretch his penis a couple times in the FF movie.
Smallville didn't do it often but they worked in references to Clark's super-sex abilities.
As for comics they take themselves too seriously and the fun element is lost. Too much realism has neutered comics fun factor. And one reason for that is writers try to use comics to prove they can write live action. So they try to structure comics to feel like adaptions of a TV show.

People are using entertainment to gain access to others minds by introducing them to their own thoughts and claiming one way of thinking is the only acceptable way of thinking. So entertainment is really being used as bait to lure many people into hearing and accepting ideology of the few.

We've seen the message of hating one percenters presented in the news and TV and (finger-snap) done.
We've seen the media tell people to believe in evolution, which is commonly worked into comics, cartoons and film and (finger-snap) done!

We have seen the few use the news and entertainment media to make people love and accept what they say and hate and reject what they say.

You might like some messages in entertainment but who's to say what the next guys with control over the machine will say next.

Decades ago people were influenced by things in entertainment but it was not an organized process like today. People learned about the power the media could have over the many and figured out ways to use it.

And now we have 'Common Core' being introduced to kids that teaches them at an early age to be obedient to the government and every single person who works for it.
So this power will be used to destroy the expectation of freedom. I haven't been watching new animation or much TV lately but I wouldn't be surprised to see that message woven into them along with evolution and the other usual messages.

These messages can be like sugar. Bad for you but you like it anyway. That's the brilliance of it.

(And just for the record I'm not a right winger, not religious, I keep an eye on CNN and FOX and I don't listen to radio shows.)

Another great example is the boobs in 'The Rescuers', in fact there are a lot of examples from Disney of inappropriate things being put into kids entertainment. But in most cases these are individual animators that are disgruntled at something and when they are spotted, they are removed immediately.

I get what you're saying but entertainment has always been used to push the ideas of the author/creator, they are after all trying to get a point across.

As for the media in general, yes most news outlets are owned by an individual or group who use them to report the news in a certain way. This isn't exactly new either though. I would strongly advise never watching Fox News as it is just awful and is complicit in spreading fear and hate. In my opinion Bill O'Reilly is one of the biggest idiots in the universe.

I disagree about modern cartoons though. I don't watch all kids shows but an excellent one from recent times is Legend of Korra. It deals with very adult themes for a cartoon and does involve relationships and politics but it never veers into crude territory and pushes no one political ideology. It is very balanced and I strongly advise watching it. You may very well be surprised.

At their best I think kids shows can teach children to think critically, to question the world around them and to make their own minds up, not to simply follow blindly what they are told and believe what they read or hear. In fact I would say the cartoons of my childhood that I enjoyed so much did just that.

Phlegmbot - 5/16/2014, 11:31 AM
Am I the only one who noticed Spidey's dialogue is completely out of character? He's talking more like SSM.

Fun to have these three back together but no thanks.
TheSavorings - 5/16/2014, 12:36 PM
Was that Rocket Raccoon in the corner in the first page?
Melkaticox - 5/16/2014, 2:04 PM
"Pato"

Wow.
TheKryce - 5/16/2014, 2:28 PM
Wow, guys ! That raccoon eating an Oreo... does it have something to do with Oreo, the raccoon that was the model for Rocket Raccoon's movie design ?
Shroombeast - 5/16/2014, 6:47 PM
Wow, looks like Rocket Racoon has fallen on hard times...
Thegeekygurl - 5/16/2014, 7:52 PM
@Doopie Another example would be Atom in between Wonder Woman's breasts on JL.
Cute but not something a descent adult would expose a kid to. I don't takes notes on the stuff but there's many thousands of examples.

I actually don't watch any of the CNN or Fox shows. I rummage through their sites and read some stuff watch some clips. I think people can learn much by watching both and knowing what their agendas are and try to filter out the BS when they feed it to you.

I think any show should have to identify what political motives, agendas and ideology they can push. The big problem is they are doing it covertly.

And they are in sync. If those controlling the media decides they want to target someone you'll see negative news, and they get bashed on late night talk shows and negative mentions get worked into network sitcoms.

The media can take anyone and define their character how they see fit and create popular opinion regarding them or their beliefs.
They can cover up crimes or create false crimes. They can quell outrage or stir it.
