Watchdog Group Denounces FOX Network’s Decision to Air Sexually Explicit X-Rated Cartoons
Cybercast News Service ^ | July 26, 2013 - 4:38 PM | Curtis Houck

Posted on 07/28/2013 1:22:57 PM PDT by Olog-hai

Beginning Saturday, the FOX network will air a number of animated shows that contain sexually explicit and profanity-laced content never before shown on network television during its “Animation Domination High-Def” (ADHD) programming block.

The X-rated cartoons, some of which feature full frontal nudity and cartoon characters engaging in sexual activity, are modeled after Cartoon Network’s “Adult Swim” and will also be available on the internet.

FOX Entertainment Chairman Kevin Reilly stated in an interview with Daily Variety that “I’d like to find the next ‘Family Guy’ out of this block.”

But The Parents Television Council (PTC) strongly denounced the programming. “FOX’s ADHD promises to feature intensely graphic, ultra-violent, sexually explicit, and profanity-laden cartoons.” …

Their animation domination is crap anyway. Have never watched any of it anyway and stopped watching the simpsons over a decade ago when they dumped Futurama.

I've never watched any TV programs, or listened to any music, or watched any movies in all my life.

I know they're all crap because I know they're all made by commie pinko liberals.

SAVE YOUR MONEY EVERYONE!

If you are watching TV or listening to music or watching movies STOP IT NOW! It's all liberal commie propaganda programmed to make you want to be a homo commie sympathizer.

Never listened to any music? Even music written before Karl Marx’s birth?

Don’t make yourself sound too much like Khomeini, even as a joke . . .
Allah did not create man so that he could have fun. The aim of creation was for mankind to be put to the test through hardship and prayer. An Islamic regime must be serious in every field. There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious. Islam does not allow swimming in the sea and is opposed to radio and television serials. Islam, however, allows marksmanship, horseback riding and competition …

Me too. Waste of time.

Well, there are a few.

TV

Seinfeld

Ghost Hunters

Fox News (when an event is happening)

The Dead Files

HGTV

Travel Channel

Music

Sinatra

AC/DC

Black Sabbath

Ozzie Osborne

Louis Prima

Other than that I listen to Old Time Radio via the internet. The Jack Benny Show is my favorite.

ps: Don't you love it how Bill OReilly will condemn Fox TV Network for sexually explicit programming but on friday nights he has playboy bunnies surrounding him on his No Spin Zone?

There are lots of conservatives in Hollywood. You just have to find your way through the mush and take it with a grain of salt. I personally enjoy movies, and music.

It’s always been my opinion that if your faith and beliefs are so weak that music and tv will sway you, you’re best to avoid it all together. However, if you are so frightened of your beliefs being challenged why are you on the Internet?

Please ignore this post. It’s a phony. I will add that I quit watching television several years ago and I often wonder how much money I have saved because I did not see ads which would attempt my to buy something. Of course the media now are pro-gay, pro-communist.

I can’t remember the last time I turned my tv on. If I want to watch a movie, I watch Netflix on my computer. I also love the old sitcoms - today’s offerings are crap and not funny at all.

We eat only boiled beef and cabbage at my house and only drink water.

Changing foods and adding spices to them is what the communists want you to do.

“Animation Domination High-Def” (ADHD)”

Sounds like ADHD is a perfect acronym for it. Most of TV I suppose. Although I do enjoy the Walking Dead, that History Channel Viking show (is that coming back!?), "In the Middle", and Numbers.

I stopped breathing during the Clinton administration. No way I’m going to breathe the same dirty air as a bunch of liberals. I don’t miss it at all.

Don’t worry. Rupert Murdoch has always been a devout Christian and devoted husband in his personal life. I’m sure he will put a stop to this filthy show once he finds out about it.

They are making a huge blunder.

Adult Swim was a sleeper hit, because it aired very late at night targeting college age viewers. Several of their shows used a combination of slow-tempo primitive animation and surrealism, like “Sealab 2021”, which was only possible because the Hanna-Barbera library had been purchased by TBS, which allowed Cartoon Network full access for pennies.

The Cartoon Network also gave free reign to up and coming animators, rebroadcast Japanese anime, cut a lot of corners and cranked out a large number of hits.

So, between 1-4am, with an inebriated college audience, it was hilarious. Any other time of day and it would have flopped.

Importantly, Adult Swim also rode on the back of the hugely popular and innovative Cartoon Network, that itself created hit after hit with daytime shows like Cartoon Cartoon.

They have been airing sexually explicit cartoons on Adult Swim, on Cartoon Network, in the middle of the night, for as long as I can remember. Where y’all been?

Aside from TV, music and movies, there’s nothing left except videogames and books. And midnight fantasies, of course. You don’t need any software or hardware to play that cool game.

If this is true I want to see FOX News executives and anyone else involved laid out and disemboweled. The production crews can tape that and air it during ultra-violence hour.

I’ve seen one of the shows: Axe Cop.
It’s Very Adult Swim-ish like Seaquest, not quite as good as Robot Chicken. I couldn’t finish the episode. Hopped up kids will probably like it.
Seemed like typical TV fare for ‘young adults’.

I’ve been curious to see what Axe Cop would look like fully animated having been aware of the web comic for some time now.
The story is written by a 5 year old and drawn by his 29 year old brother.

It's all liberal commie propaganda programmed to make you want to be a homo commie sympathizer.

i thought all the dinosaurs died?

i grew up on a healthy dose of Johnny Quest, Bugs Bunny and Mayberry RFD- in reaching 50, I've felt no inclination to be a homo, commie or otherwise.

You comment is assinine and intentionally merant to shock- leading me to think your a troll. In my 12 years here on FR..not including several years lurking, this is by far the stupidest comment yet.

did you ever stop to think the printed press (which is the only thing left youre left to digest)is also liberal?

odd, that youd abhor everything BUT computer talk forums - I call BS

You know it’s all crap made by liberals because you’ve never watched or listened to it? How do you even get internet at your cave? If you don’t watch or listen to it who are you to tell anyone else to STOP IT NOW. Sorry, that doesn’t work win liberals tell me that and it won’t work with you. Sad way to live life.
