The appeal of animated cartoons can be long-lasting. I grew up in the 1960s, when the era of TV cartoon series was at its height. Until the 1950s, cartoon shorts by Disney and Warner Bros., such as Merry Melodies, Looney Tunes, Silly Symphonies, as well as Tex Avery shorts, had been designed for movie theatres, run before a main presentation. Those were added to kids TV schedules but cartoons were soon tailor-made for the medium of TV. William Hanna and Josef Barbera produced their own shows with characters such as Huckleberry Hound or Yogi Bear voiced by Daws Butler. Countless other cartoon characters chased each other across the small screen, the most memorable being voiced by Mel Blanc. Cartoons were an integral part of growing up for kids around the globe.

One way to stop the indoctrination is to call them their appropriate name - Moslems. When kids KNOW what that means it helps to clear up confusion.
Why Do People Say Muslim Now Instead of Moslem?
By Yii-Ann Christine Chen
Ms. Chen is a student at the University of Washington and an intern at HNN.
Is it Muslim or Moslem?
When Baby Boomers were children it was Moslem. The American Heritage Dictionary (1992) noted, “Moslem is the form predominantly preferred in journalism and popular usage. Muslim is preferred by scholars and by English-speaking adherents of Islam.” No more. Now, almost everybody uses Muslim.
According to the Center for Nonproliferation Studies, “Moslem and Muslim are basically two different spellings for the same word.” But the seemingly arbitrary choice of spellings is a sensitive subject for many followers of Islam. Whereas for most English speakers, the two words are synonymous in meaning, the Arabic roots of the two words are very different. A Muslim in Arabic means “one who gives himself to God,” and is by definition, someone who adheres to Islam. By contrast, a Moslem in Arabic means “one who is evil and unjust” when the word is pronounced, as it is in English, Mozlem with a z.
Journalists switched to Muslim from Moslem in recent years under pressure from Islamic groups. But the use of the word Moslem has not entirely ceased. Established institutions which used the older form of the name have been reluctant to change. The American Moslem Foundation is still the American Moslem Foundation (much as the NAACP is still the NAACP—the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People). The journal The Moslem World—published by the Hartford Seminary in Connecticut—is still The Moslem World.
Call them what they are - MOSLEMS!
In the Islamic world, cartoons have a more sinister purpose. In Iran, on Al-Quds Day, Iranian TV schedules are filled with cartoons about evil Israelis with red eyes, shooting and murdering innocent doe-eyed Palestinians. For older kids, the heroes fight back, and even get martyred in the cause of Allah. Al-Quds day, named after the Arab term for Jerusalem and initiated by Ayatollah Khomeini in 1983, is a time for Iranian media to reinforce Holocaust denial and anti-Semitic propaganda.
Muslims comprise only one and a half percent of the American population, but be prepared for the latest exercise in Muslim propaganda and toy promotion The Ninety-Nine. This began life as a series of printed comic super-hero characters, each one representing one of the Ninety-Nine names of Allah.
The Ninety-Nine featured in printed monthly comic books, originally produced by Teshkeel Comics in Kuwait. This company had deals to publish Arabic versions of Marvel, DC and Archie comics. Now, the Ninety-Nine is on sale in North America, distributed by Diamond.
The Ninety-Nine is the brainchild of a Kuwaiti psychologist and entrepreneur, Dr Naif Al-Mutawa. He described how his desire to create the comic-book series emerged after hearing anti-Western hate from an imam at a mosque he attended:
We had great cartoon shows when I was groiwing up in the fifties and sixties like Crusader Rabbit, The Flintstones, Felix the cat, Ruff and Ready, Quick Draw McGraw, Tom Terrific, Rocky and Bulklwinkle, Popeye, The Jetsons and many many others.
The kid shows of today on Saturday and Sunday mornings suck big time.
They are so bad that they boggle the mind.
Kids would be better off reading books instead.
Don’t forget Mighty Mouse!!
However, no matter how edifying the comic books may be for Moslem families, it is bizarre to see the President of the United States, endorsing such religiously-inspired products. The POTUS should normally be upholding the Establishment Clause of the Bill of Rights, and not be promoting a particular faith, but this president seems to think his desire to create good feelings in Moslems over-rides his need to abide by the First Amendment. The endorsement of Naif Al-Mutawa and The Ninety-Nine can be watched below:
President Obama Gives Naif Al-Mutawa and THE 99 A Shout Out
The new media outlet, called The Hub, will officially start airing on October 11, with veteran broadcaster Margaret Loesch running the schedule. And on the schedule of The Hub network will be an animated series called The 99, which will bring to life the Islamic cartoon superheroes. This is the first time that I am aware of where a religious cartoon series has been broadcast and aimed at the general viewing public.
In Kuwait, the Ninety-Nine has been seen as educational and instructional, and has not been criticised. But it does seem strange that Islam dressed up in the form of cartoon superhero characters should be presented on the screen.
Are we going to see ass-kicking Christian superhero nuns, called Faith, Hope and Charity, whooping sinners butts and sending Satan into Hell? It is doubtful.
Even Jay Jay the Jet Plane had to have ALL Christian overtones and verses REMOVED.
Rocky and Bullwinkle were the best. Peabody and Sherman were awesome as well, along with Underdog and Dudley Dooright.
They really don’t make them like that anymore :(
Wouldn't he need to wear a Burka?
They will be showing them in all the public schools right before prayers to Allah I guess.
only when he illegally crosses the border
Because we have been conditioned by the communists not to speak up and speak the truth for fear of being branded a racist,this has enabled the scum of the earth to come in and take over.
Somehow I doubt that these so-called Moslem superheroes will stand a chance against the might of Japanese manga and anime. Goku will just go super-Saiyan on the little Moslem pukes.
After all, he’s over level 9000!!!
(Heh heh heh... I just couldn’t resist.)
Our Judeo Christian God has numerous names however the Moslem god is not the same god as our God. We part ways when Ismhemel was viewed as the blessed one, whereas Judeo Christians see Isaac as being the blessed one. I always find it amusing. Here is Isaac a legitimate son of Abraham and Sarah and Hagar has an illegitimate son, Ishmael and sparks an illegitimate religion - Islam. I resent pushing Islam and Christianty is being erased.
What happened if it time to pray and someone needs saving? Well too bad, I had to bow in the westward direction... sorry about the super villian blowing up the earth....
No...its a gay moslem
Those were great cartoons for sure. I’ll add Top Cat, Snagglepuss, Underdog, Astro Boy and Tom and Jerry.
obama: “...superheros who emody the teachings and tolerance of islam”.
but he is not a muslim.
Does the comic book come inbedded with explosives?
These ladies are locked and loaded!
Practice makes PERFECT!
Go sister go!
Practice makes PERFECT!
Go sister go!
“No...its a gay muslim”
No...its a gay moslem
How a gay muzzleman.
Or a gay mohammedan.
I've always heard that this was the way Islam started, but is there any EVIDENCE of that? Could it be that someone overlaid that onto Islam later, simply to give it some legitimacy in the eyes of the Judeo-Christian world. It's obvious that Mohammed took practices of Judaism and Christianity, and interlaced them with his own ideas, when writing the Koran.
Nothing “gay” about sodomite perverts ...

Our local newspaper TV critic called them the Hanna-Barbera garbage factory. Their cartoons were awful! Animation was terrible, not like it was when they worked for MGM.
I love the old cartoons up until H-B took over the saturday morning cartoon shows. the H-B cartoons had something lacking, ANIMATION!
