FOX (ended 2008)
I must agree WHOLEHEARTEDLY. I would no more put one of my ratties in a microwave than I would one of the actors.
This is animal cruelty even to show it. Some stupid kid is going to see that and think how much fun it would be to see a living creature die a most horrible death.
Either monitor what you are putting on the air, or take the entire show off completely. The latter would not upset me in the least.
|Also- Rat Lady..I've seen my fare share of 'animal cruelty' in Family Guy as well!|
|LOL @ The fact that the first four posts or whatever are all made by people with one post... I'm guessing this was a joke.|
...and not that funny, either. Wonder why they picked this show?? No animal haters/lovers particularly watching this series.
|The top poster says the promo showed two boys: do they mean Gator and the other guy?|
I've got a hunch that in a later episode they show a flashback of when Gator and Tommy were kids and always getting into mischief... just a guess.
p.s. concerned about being the last post on all of these threads... somebody please save me and I promise not to post for a day or two - just read.
|This scene was in the last episode. And the animal rights was the main plot of the episode. That's why they did that scene. It was not funny at all really...|
The Humane Society did a review of this episode and gave the handling of animals a top score. They said it is not up to them to comment on the content (or humor/lack thereof) but only the safety and wellbeing of the animals used.
Here's their review of the matter:
