THE LEGEND OF PRINCE VALIANT cartoon often showed people getting stabbed/cut by swords/knives and shot with arrows (and yes, the characters that were cut/stabbed and shot did indeed die and stayed dead) in almost every single episode, and that show was on the FAMILY CHANNEL. Heck, in one episode it was clearly stated that a baby was killed while still in it's crib as a result of a war caused by one of the shows main villains (they even showed the crib, but not the body of the baby, which the body of the dead baby was still lying in). They even did an episode about canibalism.

I've seen the shows your talking about, heck I own the real adventrues boxset. Johnny kills serveal pirates in the first episode by tricking them to crash into a rock. That was the 90s though. This is now. Moms don't want that. During the late 90s shows starting toneing back the violence, and only now are they slowly allowing more again. If this G.I.Joe show was picked up and continued no way would it air on normal cartoonetwork. At least it wouldn't air with the real firearms. Ever since they made that rule about kids guns kid shows haven't had real guns in them. At least ones that fired bullets.

idk. it's probably a good thing that it isn't aimed at kids since there are so many kids out there that emulate what they see on tv and bring guns to school and accidentally kill others.

resolute isn't aimed for kids, but b/c it's a cartoon so parents will let kids watch it. that fine line between kid's shows and those aimed a more mature audience is almost gone now. i guess it says something about our society these days, yet there's always going to be that stigma that people who watch anything animated are watching shows/movies that are for children.

Actually, the violence in cartoons started being toned down way before the late 90's, depending on whether or not the show was a network show or syndicated. Network kids cartoons are often a lot tamer then syndicated kids shows. This new G.I. JOE cartoon could definitely air on normal Cartoon Network, it would just have to carry a TV-PG rating for violence like STAR WARS CLONE WARS and NARUTO caries. Now if they wanted this show to have a TV-Y7 rating for "fantasy violence" all they have to do is change the realistic gunfire sound to the fantasy pulse laser sound (like they did with SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN and the BIG GUY AND RUSTY THE BOY ROBOT animated series).

The whole thing is an hour-long animated movie, but they're cutting it into five minute webisodes.

Not to mention the fact that people have been waiting for this forever, and they release it in short 5-minute episodes. Thats weak.

I watched the first 2 parts, and I loved it. It's a damn good toon. But I think I'll wait for the full "movie" on Saturday instead of watching more parts. I'd definitely watch if it became a full-on series.
