Man I remember the pincushion man/balloony world thing. My parents had tons of old cartoons on VHS and us kids would watch them all the time. It was a fun time as a kid.

However it never occurred to me until now that the pincushion man was supposed to be a safety pin!! Seriously, that blew me away when I read that.

And no, I still don't think it was perverted at all. That's just modern world jadedness, looking at old-world naïveté.

List fails without the 'Pigs is Pigs' cartoon from the 30's where the pig was strapped into all kinds of different force-feeding torture devices.

The first one on the list is rather interesting though, from Mickey Mouse being the culprit that locks the dude underground to the Betty Boop mass spanking scene at the end.

It's the parents that grew up as free-range latchkey kids who become the worst hover parents.

We always want our kids to have a better childhood than us, and that means limiting the hell out of them, apparently. F

That's because women and blacks knew their proper places back then. And the hysterical moms of the day didn't have time to worry about their children because they were too busy forming coalitions to pass laws keeping their husbands from having a drink.

Not sure why but the passage where Donald Duck shoots the bird with a machine gun always gives me the creeps, especially the part just before, when the bird mimes suicide.

The Bimbo thing was him being initiated into a secret society, a la the Masons or the Royal Order of Water Buffaloes. They got up to some serious feces when it came to intitation rituals back then. I used to have a link to a catalogue of stuff they used but can't find it now.

Well, someone quantified it, then. And yes, I meant Tex Avery, but had started to say Chuck Jones, looked away, then continued. Oh well.

I was always creeped out by the Three Musketeers Tom & Jerry where Tom gets the guillotine at the end. "Poor, poor pussycat," jolly music swells. Tom rarely deserved his fate.

Wow. Just wow. I was feeling jaded before I clicked on the link wondering what sort of lame cartoons they'd hold up as examples to their hyperbole.

Turns out it wasn't hyperbole. Those cartoons are something else all right...

The hell of it is I actually remember seeing some of these cartoons as a kid, but I don't remember them being quite so dark!

Here's the entire cartoon (in remarkably good condition as well). This is the first cartoon I thought of when reading the headline.

While it was released in the 50's, it was released in theatres and it likely still had a primarily adult audience.

Ok cool.  I never knew all of this.  Guess it makes sense, not everyone had TVs and kids probably didn't go to the movies all that much.

Even though it's from fairly late in the original run, and from the 50's, that one was still a theatrically released cartoon, so it fits the scenario cheesedog1 lays out. Having said that, I don't think theatrical cartoons were necessarily thought of sophisticated entertainment for adults by either the movie goers or, especially, the movie distributors. It's probably more accurate to say they were aimed at a general audience. In fact, it's probably because the studios (the movie producer/distributors, not the animation studios themselves) didn't take cartoons especially seriously that you see things like those in TFA. The animation studios were either subsidiaries of the main studios or independents who contracted to distributors. Since they were just producing something to "fill out the bill" the distributors didn't much care what the animation studios did, and so the animators were free to, occasionally, come up with some crazy shiat. Three of the five are also pre-code, which may explain something.

I don't think it's mentioned in the article, but I'm pretty sure #1 is a Bimbo cartoon, just like #5, so you get the same character in two f'ed up cartoons. I'd also be interested in finding out the background to the music for #1, "Swing You Sinners". I know it wasn't uncommon to work popular tunes or songs from the "main" studios pictures into the cartoons ("I Love to Singa" being a nice example of the latter), so I wonder if something similar was going on here. No music credit on the title screen, so who knows. Maybe I'll see if I can find my copy of "Of Mice and Magic" and see if has anything on this one.

2012-08-16 06:24:32 PM  
Meh.

Nothing approaches the sheer nightmare fuel that was/is the late 70s-early 80s animated Raggedy Ann and Andy full-length movie.

Seriously, if you've never done drugs or had a bad trip, that film will shred your soul.

I remember the Tom and Jerry cartoon from when I was a kid, even then I knew it was messed up.

Does anyone remember that cartoon were Pluto gets kidnapped by a crazy scientist and tries to vivisect him? That scared the pants off me when I was a kid.

Probably influenced somewhat by surrealism, which animation would be rather suited to.
