Damn and everything I ever learned, I learned down on the corner. I took my troubles down to Madame Rue You know that gypsy with the gold-capped tooth . She looked at my palm and she gave a mighty sigh, she said what you need is----In the wake of Dr. Seuss Enterprises' announcement that six old books would no longer be printed, [...]popculture.com
In the wake of Dr. Seuss Enterprises' announcement that six old books would no longer be printed, culture critics are putting fresh attention on other aspects of children's media — including The Looney Tunes' Pepé Le Pew. On Wednesday, Charles M. Blow wrote an opinion column for The New York Times saying, among other things, that Pepé "normalized rape culture."
Blow pointed to the problematic features of children's media as well, recalling even more obscure old characters like Speedy Gonzales and Mammy Two Shoes. However, the condemnation of Pepé Le Pew seemed to hit some readers especially hard.
So....now some of our favorite cartoons are a no no. When is this insanity going to stop? Blow can blow me.
I learned some of my best moves from Pepe.
He is a PLAYA!!!
