When was the last time you saw a western family cartoon blatantly showing alcohol consumption?
A long time.
I don't know, as soon as kids are 11 or 12 they can watch their Family Guy reruns, Rick and Morty and South Park.
Is it really a massive problem if they don't see people drinking booze in their cartoons when they're 10?
I mean, I'd be ok with it, but in the end, who the fuck cares. It's one of the smallest non-issues I've ever seen brought up.
The Good Dinosaur had the main characters hallucinate after they ate fermented fruit. I'm not sure anything gets more recent or mainstream than a Pixar movie that came out about two months ago.
Even in modern day Disney animated features, adult characters will drink what is very obviously alcohol, but it's still rare to hear it called by name.
It's been said earlier, but smoking is much rarer
Source? That sounds like something Disney would do, but I didn't really think about it considering the theme of the movie. Designing histories most infamous one way ticket aircrafts should weigh heavily on the protagonist, but this guy does little more than spare it a thought and then accept it. No tears, no apology, no "oh god what have I done" just an acknowledgment and acceptance. All while being allied with Nazis who attended his wedding.
your father was in here RAVING last night
I want cartoons to start treating marijuana the same as alcohol. The cranky old dad that comes home from work and sits in front of the football game and vapes until his pork chop is ready.
HOP HOP HOP BORDURIA!! BORDURIA!!!
Came here to say this, but not sure if it counts as "blatant". Do kids realize that fermented fruit is alcohol? Plus the scene where they are drunk was more of a generic drug trip, less drunk.
This needs to be sourced because it sounds highly circumspect. Ghibli DID send Disney a katana when they debated going back on their agreement and editing Princess Mononoke to make it more family friendly.
This seems to be the ticket. Drinking is common enough, but they very rarely verbally acknowledge it. Last time I remember was in Frozen when Hans starts pissing away the kingdom's money on glögg for the peasants, but even then, that would go over most American's heads in general, let alone kids.
This. I'm surprised no one else mentioned it.
Disney World has beer and wine now, bitches!
Clone Wars from the few episodes I watched recently. Boba tries to have a drink from a bar and Aurra Sing stops him from drinking it because of his age. Another episode has Anakin arrest Obi Wan's "killer" and flat out says "He's drunk!"
It's Star Wars but it didn't do anything to make it a kid friendly show, some bars even had exotic dancers.
Unfortunately, alcohol seemed to be scarce in the Magic Kingdom, so there wouldn't be much opportunity to try Space Mountain drunk. Could be interesting on LSD though.
There's tons of it in Epcot and Disney Studios though. Can't remember seeing any great beer, but there was some decent stuff available and Epcot's France had some good wine. Don't know about Animal Kingdom.
Keep in mind that it's Disney World, so pretty much everything is overpriced as fuck.
