First off, I am not what I would consider a prude or a censorship nazi. That said, I just have to post about an episode of Dexter's Lab (Dexter Dodgeball) I just saw on Cartoon Network with my children. Dexter, a nerdy type, is getting picked on in the playground under the pretext of dodgeball. Bullies are throwing balls at him and humiliating him. That night at home he gets inspiration from a dream. The next day in the playground the bullies attempt to humiliate him again by throwing balls at him. Dexter presses a button on his belt and a Mechwarrior type robot suit appears around him. Here's where it gets troubling: In a rage Dexter shoots balls out of the robots hands at the bullies as they run from him. He chases them around the schoolyard shooting balls in rapid fire, yelling in a mad rage. It is a long drawn out sequence presented as heroic vengance for his humiliation. The cartoon ends with him standing over the prostrate (unconcious?) and bruised bodies of the bullies in his power-suit. Maybe I am too sensitive but have these folks never heard of Columbine? My wife and I were both a bit shocked by this and are seriously considering blocking cartoon network. Are enough people shocked by this insensitivity to complain to Cartoon Network about this or am I just turning into a cranky old man? If I am right who would I complain to?
