Holey Jeebus! These folks evidenly have NO critical thought process...evidently if the bible is "literally" true...anything & everything in the "BIG BAD WORLD" is too!! Especially Scooby DOO!

So what...like they will be forced to eat at Applebees just because they saw a commercial on TV??!!

"Children are affected by these programs.."....they might be having what's termed as "fun" can't be having that!

Randal Graves said...

Aw shit, I'll have to watch these later as I have no sound at this terminal. Do they mention D&D, too? I know when we played, it was merely to summon hot demon babes and fornicate with them.

And we would've gotten away with it if it wasn't for you meddling ki, er, adults!

HA! Oh, that made my day. (though, sadly there ARE people who are that affected by advertising).

After the obvious silliness, what got me was two things.

1) Poor Vincent Price.
2) Phil Phillips? My, what unimaginative parents he had. No wonder he's messed up.

What dicks.

I mean, seriously.

what dicks.

Doctor Smoke said...

'Stone hedge'?

you mean, henge, surely, you a-hole.

what a dick.

Doctor Smoke said...

'God isn't master of the universe, He-man is'

that two year old kid is a genius.

"There must be some kind of spiritual force behind all this..."

[church lady]"Hmm...I don't know. Could it be maybe Sa-tan??!?"

Honestly. These people are bigger geeks than geeks! This is a bloody CARTOON, for fark sakes! Live a little!

Phil wrote a great book called "Terror in the Toybox" which says a lot of what he's saying in this interview. It's one of the most hilarious, histrionic, alarmist, ridiculous books I've ever read in my life. And it never stops being funny! Humorless people are quite possibly the funniest of all.

Do they mention cartoons that feature talking vegetables?

Because the veggietales are insipid.

Arkonbey said...

MM: I agree these guys are way the hell OUT THERE, but propaganda is where you find it.

Overtly Christian cartoons in the mainstream might reverse the sides of the argument, wouldn't they? Agnostics, atheists and non-Christians could cry foul about 'indoctrinating the kids' and such.

That being said, all of these anti-media types are forgetting that televisions have 'off' buttons.

Dean: second on the Veggitales critique.

LB – just like the pilgrims, you’ll lose your immortal soul if have fun.

Randal – They do mention D&D at the beginning but apparently that’s not enough to go after so cartoon are the next target.

Arkonby – imagination = Evil

Dr. S – these guys have serous problems, and total dicks is one of them

Moody – that’s good point, I think they’re really attracted to all this hocus pocus, like a repressed gay man that hates “fags”…

SF – I’ll have to look that up because I need a good laugh… from the events surrounding the removal of the X-mas tree at your high school it sounds like you grew up with lots of these kinds of folks around.

Dean – tell me about it. Nowadays they are after Harry Potter.

Arkonbey – exactly!

Dr. Zaius said...

We can only thank Jesus that these fine folks are willing to protect us from the likes of Scrappy Doo.

It is interesting that they are concerned about the occult being represented in media, instead of focusing on the the magical powers of Jesus.

Pandabonium said...

Vincent Price - wonderfully pleasant man (and a terrific cook) I had the pleasure to meet some 30 years ago. He could tell imagination from reality, but obviously these religious freaks can't.

At the end he asks (paraphrasing) "is there a plot to program the minds our children..."

Yes, it's called televangelism.

*sizzle*

Swinebread said...

Dr. Zaius – Lordy Yes! When Scrappy was revealed to be the villain in the 1st Scooby Doo movie, I began giggling uncontrollably in the theater. No matter how you feel about the film that moment redeemed it in my eyes.

That’s the real fear, that kids and adults will recognize that Jesus is just a fantasy like the rest of them…

Panda – absolutely, evil is where you find it, and I’ve found it. Your cool meter is almost at critical do to the fact that you’ve met Vincent Price. You should see Becca’s post about him here.

Moody - gnash gnash
