  • O.M.G! :shock: You will Not believe the amount of bare monkey butts seen in this episode! :idea:

    Believe it or not, there was a time when the most liberal animators on the planet were unquestionably William Hanna and Joseph Barbara! They allowed non-stereotyped African-Americans into their cartoons when no one else did! While everyone else frowned at them, Hanna-Barbara's cartoons have remained in the public view while many other cartoon studios have had to have their cartoons locked away from public view because it was...humiliating to say the least if it Was viewed in todays society when Everybody knows better! And even when they moved to television, they were still liberal! Nobody else got away with cartoon characters not wearing as much clothes as Hanna and Barbara did! They were unstoppable! But even they didn't dare to dream that cartoons should and Could do more. The one thing other cartoon companies thought to do that Hanna and Barbara didn't was to Break the rules of traditional cartoons so they could be rewritten! In the 1990's, cartoons were given a new licence and finally had the freedom to do so much more than they were previously able to do! In 1997, Hanna and Barbara oversaw the creation of a notorious (especially to their hard-core fans) cartoon creation of "Cow and Chicken!" In this cartoon, there was a Red Guy, a Cow, and a Babboon that always got away with showing their exposed rear ends, not to mention Cow's udders! Sadly, this was as far as Their liberal experiments could get to, as William Hanna passed away in 2001 and Joseph Barbara only got to see one year of "My Gym Partner's a Monkey" before he passed away to! Yet somewhere in heaven, I bet they're thinking that they can't believe how much freedom cartoons have achieved! Back in the day when Hanna and Barbara was Really fab, they couldn't have dreamnt of showing hundreds of bare monkey butts on-screen, that was unfathomable to them! But it's finally been done, and their pioneering liberal spirit endures! Also, Adam Lyon meets a friendly shark in school for a change! I can't wait for season four! Enough said, true believers! ;)
