Really! No, way! There is no way that animators would include subliminal sexual references – or to be more precise, drawing genitalia – in cartoons!
Here’s Bugs Bunny’s item as he comes out of the shower:
Apparently, Betty Boop was quite the indpendent woman who had confidence in her sexuality:
(this is an interesting video tracing betty boop’s sexuality, but you can skip to 2:30 for subliminal nudity)
And a quick look at other youtube videos shows that Disney is still propagating this! For example, an erection in the Little Mermaid? And I don’t think this only happens in animated movies. What about games?
So, what is the thinking behind this? Is it for shock? Because the animators can? For fun? Human nature? A way to mark the cartoon as your work, similar to chip grafitti? Or a case of, if you want to see something sexual in an image, you will?
