Frank,

I think Porky Pig was just plain propaganda.  Warner Bros. might have been paid a lot of money by the pork producing industry to brain wash people into believing that pigs were even happy about being made into pork. Also, many of those old time animal cartoon characters were depicted as stupid, juvenile, picked on, etc.  Has anyone ever done a study about that in terms of the damage to the images of animals in peoples’ minds?  Downgrading animals into being mindless, instinctual creatures who are ok to do whatever people want to with them?  Do you know anything about the subject?  Anything written about it?   

In contrast, I have seen excellent movies, such as “Baldo,” which really enhance animals’ Images.
