Blood can be quite a rare gem to find in kids/family friendly cartoons.
Starting with the obvious.
Can't find a screenshot of the scene, But I remember being surprised when the orange fish was hit and started bleeding. And not just a little bit, but really well animated blood flowing into the water and swirling around in slow-mo while the fish was turning all pale and looking like he was about to die. That wouldn't have flown in an American animated movie.
I'm sure most of us have heard this story, but coloring this text blood-red was a great way of getting around S&P rules that it couldn't be brown.
Yeah that's kind of dark. Didn't this movie also promote global warming way before it was accepted on an international scale? And that's why it was promoted so poorly in the states despite having a great dub with Alan Rickman as the villain.
What the F'thagn? Am I seeing this out of context, or something? Cause last time I saw that much blood on a rabbit, it was Watership Down.

It's alright. Well animated, made by the same Danish animation studio that did Hugo and Valhalla. Alan Rickman is great in it. He has a good villain song.
Only for a split second. But it's still there.
Magical amputation in Star Vs. for a more recent example.
Probably allowed because
it grows back
Batman also bleeds when Joker stabs him in the thigh in an earlier scene. Does it count though? It's a direct to dvd movie, and only the censored version was shown on American CN as far as I know.
While we're on the subject of Joker. The vampire episode in The Batman had loads of blood in it, but it was colored super dark.
I always thought this was weird. It's clearly blood. They say it's blood. No one will confuse it for anything else. Is it less scary because it's black?
apparently. With things like Homestuck or Dangan Ronpa with weird colored blood I've seen a lot of people comment about how the level of violence you're seeing doesn't really register the same way unless the blood is edited back to red
This scared me a lot with Penguin in Batman Returns when I was little. I don't know if it was censorship or stylistic choice, but the black goo he was coughing up all the time was disgusting.
I think it's simply because seeing a lot of naturally colored blood triggers some sort of response in us. It signifies 'real' danger or injury. We're hardwired to react when we see a lot of red liquid coming out of ours or someone else's body.
It's true, but even weirder is that I heard when making a movie you're only allowed to show so much fake blood. In Kill Bill vol1, the fight with the Crazy 88 goes into black and white so they could use chocolate syrup for blood.
Surprised they let this in
> Didn't this movie also promote global warming way before it was accepted on an international scale? And that's why it was promoted so poorly in the states
Why the fuck did we get The Day After Tomorrow then?
>America's just being retarded on purpose.
More like corporate lobbies control our government more than any other country and acknowledging global warming could hurt their bottom line
>Yfw this is the American release cover.
That always gets my piss cooking. Imagine having worked on that, spending hours upon hours on creating fluid hand-drawn animation, only to have it plastered with this turd of a cover?
No fucking way. Why? What cynical asshole thought that the only way to get people interested in this is to misrepresent it with a cover that makes it look like the shittiest CG movie?
I'm pretty sure it was done in an attempt to make the movie tank by whoever was distributing it in the states, or someone really was so retarded they thought making it look like a cheap ripoff of Finding Nemo would make people buy it.
I don't understand why black blood isn't used in western action cartoons involving large amounts and body wounds. Blood already often comes in dark hues, and it being black is usually seen as tasteful self-censorship in movies, tv series, and comics.
DCAU got away with it until Justice League. And yet some of the stuff they got away with JL was worse than bleeding.
I remember this movie. Rented it to laugh at garbage and was very surprised instead. Seriously, was advertising it as some shitty Indian tier CGI Shark Tales rip-off the only way they got Americans to watch this?
That's even more terrifying. Combined with the lighting it creates an exceptionally dark and gritty atmosphere, even for a Batman show. Looms like something straight out of a horror movie.
To this date the only time they've had legit red blood in Adventure Time.
I guess it was okay since everyone know's the heart is filled with blood and it's not a person so no one cared?
