10 Outdated Disney Movies Parents Won't Show Their Kids, According to New Poll
With screen time limits completely out the window due to the coronavirus pandemic and weeks on end indoors, my husband and I have been letting our 20-month-old watch more TV and movies than we otherwise would. When we couldn't take one more Blue's Clues episode or Trolls rewatch, we broke out the next social distancing tool up our sleeves: Disney+, Disney's streaming service.
Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Moana, and Toy Story were all hits—we've got a major Buzz Lightyear fan on our hands—but when it came time to watch 1953's Peter Pan, we were struck by how outdated it was. I certainly didn't remember all of the racism and sexism. Between Peter Pan telling Wendy that "girls talk too much," the guns (!!), Tinker Bell trying to kill Wendy over jealousy, and the treatment of Native Americans (“What makes the red man red?"—seriously?!), I was happy when my son walked away to play with his toys and just wasn't that into it.
Exclusive: Mel Blanc's son shares how Bugs Bunny saved his father's life during coma
With nearly every bone broken in his body, they thought he was lost. But Bugs Bunny wasn't going to let that happen.
We're not talking an episode of Looney Tunes. This isn't fiction. This is the life of iconic voice actor Mel Blanc as told in the upcoming season of the podcast Twenty Thousand Hertz, and EW has an exclusive clip of Blanc's son Noel Blanc recounting his father's nearly fatal experience.
Next season of Harley Quinn will explore her romance with Poison Ivy
Supervillain / anti-hero Harley Quinn is a fan favourite in the LGBTQ community, and not least for her relationship with fellow villain Poison Ivy. And although the cartoon series on the DC Universe streaming service has hinted at their relationship, it hasn’t been explicit with it.
But in the second season, which began airing on Friday (3 April), this is set to change, with a small moment in the trailer showing Harley and Ivy briefly holding hands.
And speaking to Metro, the show’s showrunner, Patrick Schumacker has confirmed that this relationship will be explored. “It will develop more, and it’s definitely going to evolve into, I think, what a lot of people are hoping it will,” he explained.
Ecuador's highest court legalizes same-sex marriage
Ecuador's highest court has ruled to recognize same-sex marriage, marking a watershed moment for LGBTQ rights in the Catholic-majority country.
Judges on Quito's constitutional court ruled five-to-four on Wednesday to overhaul the country's laws, arguing that its current marriage legislation was discriminatory and unconstitutional, and that same-sex couples should be allowed equal rights.
The four dissenting judges said that changes to the Ecuadorean constitution should be decided and approved by the government and not the court.
Ecuador's National Assembly will still be required to officially change the laws that define the institution of marriage. Constitutional lawyer Salim Zaidán told CNN, however, that Wednesday's verdict was binding and that same-sex couples would be able to marry as soon as the constitutional court notifies local government offices of their decision. The court has 10 days to do so.

Anime Did Not Make My Son Gay
No, anime did not make my son gay. He’s bisexual, anyway. Anime didn’t “do” that to him either. I won’t link to certain places online that contain ludicrous opinions about how children can be “made” gay (or on the spectrum of LGBTQ) because of the friends they choose, the toys they play with, or the entertainment they enjoy. I won’t give those ignorant people more traffic. My son watched lots of shows, including anime. He is bisexual. My daughter watched lots of shows, including anime. She is straight. A study of n=2, but if you want to get into the latest science of why homosexuality is a natural expression of humanity, check out this article based on a TED talk by James O’Keefe. Back to anime.
When my children were young, I returned to college and befriended a group of geeks who introduced me to anime and manga. I distinctly remember seeing manga once in high school on Long Island in the ’90s: A Chinese exchange student brought in an oddly thick and small comic book. When I asked him about it, he explained that in Asia comics were books called “manga” and, even though cartoons were mostly for children in America, that wasn’t the case in Asia, where manga and “anime” were created for all age groups. I remember the cover looking a bit racy and he bashfully explained that this particular manga was definitely not for kids.
TAYLOR GRAY HOPES TO CONTINUE EZRA BRIDGER'S STORY AFTER STAR WARS REBELS
Star Wars Rebels star Taylor Gray knows Dave Filoni left some wiggle room regarding Ezra Bridger's fate at the end of the series, and Gray would be more than happy to shimmy into that space if given the chance.
Wait, You Never Heard of Danger and Eggs?
With its colorful, quirky animation style and collection of endearingly offbeat characters, Amazon Prime’s Danger & Eggs belongs to the same kind of alternate universe as fellow animated shows Adventure Time, Regular Show, and Steven Universe. Even better, Danger is packed with queer and trans characters, voiced by queer and trans actors.
The cartoon centers on a spunky little girl named D.D. Danger (Saturday Night Live’s Aidy Bryant) and her best friend, Phillip (Eric Knobel) — a large, talking humanoid egg — and their adventures together in Chickenpaw Park. Until now, Steven Universe (which features several queerish and nonbinary characters) was leading the pack as the LGBT-friendliest mainstream kids cartoon, but Danger & Eggs goes a few steps further.
Disney unveils its first ever male princess — with chest hair!
The gay agenda is at it again, and this time it’s out to brainwash children into believing they can be free to express themselves. The horror!
In a recent episode of the Disney animated series Star vs. The Forces of Evil, a boy named Marco creates a female alter-ego — Princess Marco Turdina — in order to infiltrate ‘St. Olga’s Reform School for Wayward Princesses.’ Once inside, he leads the girls to revolt against the authoritarian headmistress, helping the other princesses to believe they can be themselves.
The ousted headmistress, Ms. Heinous, returns, outing Princess Marco as a fake because he has chest hair.
“That doesn’t prove anything,” one princess in the crowd replies. “Princesses can be hairy!”
The Simpsons urges aid for Puerto Rico at end of season premiere
The Simpsons unveiled a fun fantasy world inhabited by Homer Serfson in Sunday night’s season premiere, but at the end of the episode, the animated comedy got serious about a dire real-world issue. A still image, shown for five seconds, depicted all of the Springfield characters gathered together in support of hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico, with the Simpsons somberly and resolutely asking for help. Marge is holding a “Unido” sign, while Homer, Bart, and Maggie join her in holding the Puerto Rican flag. Lisa is standing in front with a tear rolling out of her eye.

'Batman' at 25: Hirings, Firings and Other Last-Minute Changes Behind the Animated Classic
Many actors have worn the cape and cowl — but for fans of Batman: The Animated Series, there is only one true Batman: Kevin Conroy.
Batman: The Animated Series is considered the greatest comic book cartoon of the '90s, and many consider it the greatest of all time. Animator and writer Bruce Timm had a vision for a noir-heavy take on the DC character, one that would depart from Adam West's 1960s campiness and inject a dose of Tim Burton's gothic-tinged Batman films.
Running from 1992-95, the series won four Emmys, including outstanding animated program (1993), and launched a 25-year (and counting) reign for of Conroy's Batman. It gave Star Wars star Mark Hamill a second iconic role, and introuced the world to Harley Quinn (Arleen Sorkin), who has gone on to become one of DC's most popular characters after starting as a co-dependent girlfriend to The Joker.
Obama-Biden bromance inspires animated series
Barack Obama and Joe Biden have been out of office for just over 200 days, but writer and filmmaker Adam Reid isn't ready to let them go.
He's created an animated sci-fi story featuring the former president and vice president. Together the two travel back in time with astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson as as their guide. The "brothers from different mothers" fight injustice, save history, learn science, and right wrongs — all in the nick of time.
This is the promise of Barry & Joe — The Animated Series. Reid is trying to raise $100,000 on Kickstarter by the end of the month to put together a mini, 11-minute pilot episode of the animated politicians traveling back to their younger days. He's netted nearly $77,000 as of this writing.
