More Lessons Through Cartoons
I was researching for my term paper, which is on Happy Feet, and I stumbled upon this cartoon.
Similar to Happy Feet, the one owl that is different is not accepted by his family. They want him to change and kick him out when he doesn't, but at the end they become proud of him and his differences. I find the beginning of this clip interesting, as it romanticizes nature. Also, they give the animals human traits and emotions to be able to be relate-able to the intended audience, being children. This attempts to send a message across about acceptance and diversity through nature and personified animals. So many messages being sent through cartoons!
