Cartoon Violence

High levels of violence in cartoons such as Scooby-Doo can make children more aggressive, researchers claimed yesterday.

They found that animated shows aimed at youngsters often have more brutality than programmes broadcast for general audiences.
It's true that cartoons can cause violence, just ask the Danes.

Violence in Scooby Doo?

What would they make of Ren and Stimpy, or Duckman?

Now those are real cartoons. With proper violence. Scooby? Pah.

Yeah the idea that Scoooby Doo was violent seemed strange to me as well.
