Fandom Fridays: Contemporary Cartoons and Emotional Education.

Many children’s cartoons over the decades have dealt with emotional and social issues. However, the way cartoons now talk about those issues is more integral to the main story, than summarized as a moral at the end of the episode. Cartoons are allowing their young audience to figure out the episode’s message instead of spoon feeding morals to them.

Considering shows like Adventure Time and Steven Universe, young characters are put into complicated situations. In particular, children in the shows often deal with parental figures frustrating them and being irresponsible. Contemporary cartoons acknowledge that children are more aware of issues going on in the world, and with their parents than adults think they are.

Cartoons today also encourage children to not look at failure as a shameful thing. Instead, these types of shows help kids understand success comes from allowing yourself to fail. These shows rationalize frustrations and fears youth have when learning to use problem solving skills.

Quality cartoons also include identity issues in an honest way. These shows demonstrate the difficulties of adolescents developing their identities and relating to the world around them. Moreover, contemporary cartoons promote individuality and not comparing oneself to others. These shows don’t tell children it’s more important to blend in than finding a group of friends that genuinely accept you.

These cartoons also teach children how to deal with anxiety. In comical and serious ways these shows explore how to let go of overthinking and internalizing feelings. More importantly, they teach children not to be scared to share their anxiety with others. Contemporary cartoons can educate children on emotions, social concerns and humanity.

These cartoons also use more visual elements to express a character’s mood, than relying on dialogue all the time. They show children it’s important to balance reflecting alone and sharing your thoughts with others. Contemporary cartoons normalize difficult emotions, so children know they are not alone and can identify feelings better.
