  3. Product Placement in Cartoons

    Irena Oroz Štancl


    Full Text Available Product placement is a marketing approach for integrating products or services into selected media content. Studies have shown that the impact of advertising on children and youth are large, and that it can affect their preferences and attitudes. The aim of this article is to determine the existing level of product placement in cartoons that are broadcast on Croatian television stations. Content analysis of cartoons in a period of one month gave the following results: in 30% of cartoons product placement was found; most product placement were visual ads, in 89%, however, auditory product placement and plot connection was also found. Most ads were related to toys and it is significant that even 65% of cartoons are accompanied by a large amount of products available on the Croatian market. This is the result of two sales strategies: brand licensing (selling popular cartoon characters to toys, food or clothing companies and cartoon production based on existing line of toys with the sole aim of making their sales more effective.

  6. Cartooning the conflict

    Michel Kichka


    Full Text Available Looking back on his beginnings as a political cartoonist for Israeli TV, Kichka explains how he got the opportunity to internationalize his work and of experiencing different media, editorial lines and audiences. He describes the debates between cartoonists about the necessary subjectivity of their approach, critics the anti-Semitism of some cartoons and talks about the Cartooning for Peace’s family of which he is a founding member. Considering the role of cartoon among images, Kichka shows that, despite the recent decline of the political cartoon, the cartoonists, like the photographers, create icons.Revenant sur ses débuts en tant que dessinateur de presse, notamment pour la télévision israélienne, Kichka explique comment il a eu l’opportunité d’internationaliser son travail et de s’ouvrir à différents médias, différentes lignes éditoriales et des publics divers. Il décrit les débats entre dessinateurs de presse à propos de la subjectivité inhérente à leur démarche, critique l’antisémitisme de certains dessins et parle aussi de la famille de Cartooning for Peace, dont il est un membre fondateur. Analysant le rôle des dessins par rapport aux images, Kichka montre qu’en dépit du récent déclin du dessin politique les dessinateurs de presse, à l’instar des photographes, créent de véritables icônes.

  4. The Cartoon Controversy: Offence, Identity, Oppression?

    Lægaard, Sune


    If the publication of twelve drawings of the Prophet Mohammad in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten, which sparked the ‘cartoon controversy', was wrong, why might this be the case? The article considers four arguments advanced in relation to the quite similar Rushdie affair for judging such...... publications to be wrong, and asks whether they provide plausible moral reasons against such publications, and whether they justify legal restrictions on freedom of speech. The arguments concern: (a) the consistent extension of group defamation legislation to cover Muslims; (b) offence to religious...... for judging the kind of publications under consideration to be morally wrong or suitable objects for legal restrictions. The argument from oppression is different, however, in pointing to different kinds of factors, but its applicability is limited both by a number of conditions for when oppression...

  7. Resolution Independent 2D Cartoon Video Conversion

    MSF. Fayaza


    Full Text Available This paper describes a novel system for vectorizing 2D raster cartoon. The output videos are the resolution independent, smaller in file size. As a first step, input video is segment to scene thereafter all processes are done for each scene separately. Every scene contains foreground and background objects so in each and every scene foreground background classification is performed. Background details can occlude by foreground objects but when foreground objects move its previous position such occluded details exposed in one of the next frame so using that frame can fill the occluded area and can generate static background. Classified foreground objects are identified and the motion of the foreground objects tracked for this simple user assistance is required from those motion details of foreground object’s animation generated. Static background and foreground objects segmented using K-means clustering and each and every cluster’s vectorized using potrace. Using vectored background and foreground object animation path vector video regenerated.

  9. Reuse of clips in cartoon animation based on language instructions

    WEI Bao-gang; ZHU Wen-hao; YU Jin-hui


    This paper describes a new framework for reusing hand-drawn cartoon clips based on language understanding approach. Our framework involves two stages: a preprocessing phase, in which a hand-drawn clip library with mixed architecture is constructed, and the on-line phase, in which the domain dependent language instructions parsing is carried out and clips in the clip library are matched by use of some matching values calculated from the information derived from instruction parsing. An important feature of our approach is its ability to preserve the artistic quality of clips in the produced cartoon animations.

  16. Political Cartoons as a Vehicle of Setting Social Agenda: The Newspaper Example

    Iro Sani


    Full Text Available In recent years, the cartoons genre has gained considerable research interest across disciplines; for example, communication, media studies and health sciences. More so, cartoons serve as potent source of data used to study social phenomena. This paper aims at illustrating how political cartoons are used as a vehicle of setting social agenda in Nigerian newspapers to reorient and shape the public opinion through recurrent depictions mirroring current socio-political issues at a given period. The cartoons texts were excerpted from two major Nigerian newspapers, Daily Trust and Vanguard during the period 2007-2010. One-hundred cartoons were selected using purposive sampling technique. Fifty cartoons were taken from each newspaper magazine. Specifically, content analysis was used to identify the themes contained in the cartoons depictions. Qualitative method was used to analyze the cartoons through semiotic analysis. The analysis is mainly concerned with the interpretation of the sign system based on the connotation and denotation elements in the cartoons. The results indicated that 80% of the themes focused on substantive issues through which social agenda is set to reflect social practices in the Nigerian social political contexts. Also, the results showed that Nigerian political cartoons set social agenda by mainly encapsulating current and sensitive issues that people are much concerned about. Finally, the study has identified the lack of supportive and clearly defined theoretical background in analyzing political cartoons as a major problem in previous cartoons research. Thus, this paper contributes to the cartoon research by offering theoretical insight to the cartoon genre through agenda setting theory of media effect.

  17. Watching cartoons activates the medial prefrontal cortex in children


    The medial prefrontal cortex (MPFC) of human adults is involved in attributing mental states to real human agents but not to virtual artificial characters. This study examined whether such differential MPFC activity can be observed in children who are more fascinated by cartoons than adults. We measured brain activity using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) while 10-year-old children watched movie and cartoon clips, simulating real and virtual visual worlds, respectively. We showed neuroimaging evidence that, in contrast to adults, the MPFC of children was activated when perceiving both human agents and artificial characters in coherent visual events. Our findings suggest that, around the age of 10 years, the MPFC activity in children is different from that in adults in that it can be spontaneously activated by non-human agents in a virtual visual world.

  19. Humor appreciation of captionless cartoons in obsessive-compulsive disorder

    Bozikas Vasilis P


    Full Text Available Abstract Background It seems that the core neural regions and cognitive processes implicated in obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD pathophysiology may overlap with those involved in humor appreciation. However, to date, there have been no studies that have explored humor appreciation in OCD. The purpose of the present work was to investigate humor appreciation in a group of patients with OCD. Methods We examined 25 patients with OCD and 25 healthy controls, matched by age, education, and gender. We administered Penn's Humor Appreciation Test (PHAT, a computerized test comprising captionless cartoons by Mordillo. Each set of stimuli consisted of two almost identical drawings, one of which was funny due to the alteration of a detail in the cartoon, whereas the other was not funny. Severity of psychopathology was evaluated with the Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale (Y-BOCS. Results No significant effect for group, gender or group × gender interaction was found on the PHAT scores. In OCD patients, humor appreciation was not significantly associated with age of onset, duration of illness, and obsessions, but correlated significantly with compulsions. Conclusions Humor appreciation, based on captionless cartoons in OCD, does not seem to be deficient compared to healthy subjects but may be related to illness characteristics.

  20. Roadrunner physics: using cartoons to challenge student preconceptions

    Huxford, Rachael; Ridge, Mathew; Overduin, James; Selway, Jim

    The cartoon universe is governed by laws that differ radically from those in the real world, but also mirror some of our preconceptions of how the world ``should'' work. We all know that Wile E. Coyote will never be able to catch the Roadrunner with a fan attached to a sailboard, or an outboard motor submerged in a pail of water--but why, exactly? Can we attach some numbers to this knowledge? We have designed some classroom demonstrations accompanied by personal-response-type questions that use classic cartoon clips to challenge student thinking in introductory courses, prompting them to rediscover the truths of physics for themselves. We extend this idea to intermediate-level modern physics, showing that some phenomena in the cartoon universe can be reconciled with standard physics if the values of fundamental constants such as c , G and h differ radically from those in the real world. Such an approach can both heighten student interest and deepen understanding in various physics topics.

  2. Representation of the cartoon controversy on the U.S. newspapers

    Yusuf Yüksel; Ayhan Akbulut


    Cartoon Crisis composed one of the most comprehensive international security problems of the last decade. A Danish newspaper, Jyllands-Posten, published 12 cartoons to satirize Prophet Mohammed in September 2005 which resulted in boycotts, anger and violent protest and thus a global conflict. The dispute over the cartoons has brought out the questions about the relations between the Islamic World and the West, the role of media on those relations, the limits of freedom of speech and right to ...

  3. The “Nationalization” of Oil Painting and Cartoons

    LI Nan; Tan Mingxiang; Sun Hong


    process of history, Chinese figure painting s changed dramatically.For exam-ple, Xu Beihong, Jiang Zhaohe, Ye Qianyu, Li Hu, Lu Chen, Liu Dawei, Shi Guoliang, He Jiay-ing, etc.absorbed the techniques of western oil painting, and created a new system of Chinese fig-ure painting that is quite different from original Chinese figure painting.Hence, the “nationaliza-tion” of painting existed in name only. 2.Direction of Cartoon The “nationalization” of cartoons reflects the needs of popularization and education in a specific period of China, and is a product stimulated by the“nationalization” of oil painting.In the period of the Great Leap Forward and planned economy after the liberation , “nationalization” was defined as“a mature symbol of art and literature of an era and a class.” Even though education -oriented cartoons have been changed into “artistic car-toons” and received many prizes in international competitions through the efforts of the old genera-tion of cartoon artists, it still strayed away from the entertainment function of cartoons .For a long peri-od, cartoon animations could not reflect reality, that “constraint our creative mind , and the themes of cartoon films were limited in a very narrow cir-cle.” This created five problems as follows: 1) Lack of themes which reflected reality and the future: Traditional folk stories, historical sto-ries, myths, etc.are not able to satisfy present - day teen -agers’ education.Children not only need to have an education in ancient cultural con-cepts, but they also need to think about their real life, including imaging and explorating the fu-ture technological society. 2) Misdirection in the restoration of historical materials : the repeated interpretation of history limits the creativity and imagination of cartoons. Historical material must be combined with a realis-tic spirit.Only innovation based on tradition is the key for the cartoon’ s success. 3) The differences between ancient arts

  4. Method for Face-Emotion Retrieval Using A Cartoon Emotional Expression Approach

    Kostov, Vlaho; Yanagisawa, Hideyoshi; Johansson, Martin; Fukuda, Shuichi

    A simple method for extracting emotion from a human face, as a form of non-verbal communication, was developed to cope with and optimize mobile communication in a globalized and diversified society. A cartoon face based model was developed and used to evaluate emotional content of real faces. After a pilot survey, basic rules were defined and student subjects were asked to express emotion using the cartoon face. Their face samples were then analyzed using principal component analysis and the Mahalanobis distance method. Feature parameters considered as having relations with emotions were extracted and new cartoon faces (based on these parameters) were generated. The subjects evaluated emotion of these cartoon faces again and we confirmed these parameters were suitable. To confirm how these parameters could be applied to real faces, we asked subjects to express the same emotions which were then captured electronically. Simple image processing techniques were also developed to extract these features from real faces and we then compared them with the cartoon face parameters. It is demonstrated via the cartoon face that we are able to express the emotions from very small amounts of information. As a result, real and cartoon faces correspond to each other. It is also shown that emotion could be extracted from still and dynamic real face images using these cartoon-based features.

  8. Political Cartoons in the EFL and American Studies Classroom

    Christianna Stavroudis


    Full Text Available Political cartoons are anything but innocent caricatures. They have been described as “a confrontational art form” (Oliphant 25, as “purposefully designed to elicit strong emotions and reactions from readers” (Long, Bunch, and Lloyd 651, and as “among the more extreme forms of expression” (Long, Bunch, and Lloyd 651. Stories abound with the harsh punishments endured by political cartoonists under oppressive regimes. One might even say that what allows liberal and conservative American cartoonists to feel any sense of solidarity with one another is their bond through the First Amendment and their belief in the democratic enterprise that is criticizing government.

  10. "Almost at War". The Mohammed Cartoon Crisis in Norwegian Media

    Solveig Steien


    Full Text Available In January and February 2006, Norwegians witnessed the burning of their national flag in Palestine, the burning of Norwegian embassies and consulates in Syria, Lebanon and Iran; all simply because twelve Danish Mohammed cartoons from Jyllands-Posten had been reprinted in Norway; the cartoons were published in a marginal Christian conservative weekly newspaper, Magazinet, three months after their original appearance in Denmark. In February 2006 the Norwegian ISAF-forces in Afghanistan were attacked. This conflict had a surprising impact on domestic and foreign policy, and the Norwegian publication of the cartoons triggered a global escalation of the controversy; Norwegian newspapers wrote that the country was "almost at war". I have focused on how some leading Norwegian newspapers (Aften, Aftenposten, Dagbladet, Dagens Næringsliv, Dagsavisen and VG covered this unexpected crisis and studied the different discourses that became a substantial part of the media coverage. In my analysis I have used an overall approach of War versus Peace journalism. War and Peace journalism was not created as a concept for analysing media texts or photographs, but to provide practical tools for journalists in the field of conflict and war situations. Nevertheless, this approach gives an opportunity to examine the results of journalistic work and compare them with the press'es ideals and ethical codes. At the same time, the occurrence of discourses like "clash of civilisations", freedom of speech, "us" versus "them", i.e., "us" versus the Muslims, and the newspapers' choice of sources for their stories, seem to fit with a model of War and Peace journalism. The focus is on opinion materials like editorials and comments, as well as on domestic reports and reportage by correspondents. By analysing samples of articles I have tried to outline some areas where the concept of Peace versus War journalism still needs to be developed, in order to become a comprehensive or more

  16. Representation of the cartoon controversy on the U.S. newspapers

    Yusuf Yüksel


    Full Text Available Cartoon Crisis composed one of the most comprehensive international security problems of the last decade. A Danish newspaper, Jyllands-Posten, published 12 cartoons to satirize Prophet Mohammed in September 2005 which resulted in boycotts, anger and violent protest and thus a global conflict. The dispute over the cartoons has brought out the questions about the relations between the Islamic World and the West, the role of media on those relations, the limits of freedom of speech and right to protests and violence. This study aimed to find out how the cartoon controversy was represented in the US news media and the difference between newspapers depending on the rate of Muslim population in their circulation area.  A content analysis of Detroit Free Press, Herald News, Omaha World-News and Wyoming Tribune-Eagle newspapers are used to test the hypothesis about the publication of the cartoons and reaction of the Muslims to this issue. The findings suggest that the newspapers published in Muslim diverse communities are likely to draw more attention to the controversy. However, the difference is not significant. All of the four newspapers present negative views not only about the publication of the cartoons but also the reaction of the Muslims.

  17. Children'S experience of three types of cartoon at two age levels.

    Björkqvist, K; Lagerspetz, K


    Three cartoons were shown to 87 children at two age levels: 5-6 years, and 9 years. The children's experience was assessed in interviews. The younger children experienced the cartoons in a fragmentary manner and not as a continuous story, understood less of the cartoons, and tended to base their moral judgements of a character's behaviour on whether or not they identified with that character. Six months later, the younger children remembered best those scenes that had made them the most anxious earlier. A subgroup of children with abundant aggressive fantasies had a lower level of moral reasoning than the other children, preferred violent scenes, became less anxious while watching them and tended to give illogical explanations for the behaviour of the cartoon characters. The degree of anxiety provoked by a cartoon depended not on the amount of explicit violence shown but on the way the violence was presented. One cartoon, which contained no explicit violence, was considered the most frightening one due to its sound effects. PMID:25825063

  20. Preliminary Examination of a Cartoon-Based Hostile Attributional Bias Measure for Urban African American Boys

    Leff, Stephen S.; Lefler, Elizabeth K.; Khera, Gagan S.; Paskewich, Brooke; Jawad, Abbas F.


    The current study illustrates how researchers developed and validated a cartoon-based adaptation of a written hostile attributional bias measure for a sample of urban, low-income, African American boys. A series of studies were conducted to develop cartoon illustrations to accompany a standard written hostile attributional bias vignette measure (Study 1), to determine initial psychometric properties (Study 2) and acceptability (Study 3), and to conduct a test-retest reliability trial of the adapted measure in a separate sample (Study 4). These studies utilize a participatory action research approach to measurement design and adaptation, and suggest that collaborations between researchers and key school stakeholders can lead to measures that are psychometrically strong, developmentally appropriate, and culturally sensitive. In addition, the cartoon-based hostile attributional bias measure appears to have promise as an assessment and/or outcome measure for aggression and bullying prevention programs conducted with urban African American boys.

    Felix Fenske


    Full Text Available The following contribution makes an effort to place the concept-cartoon-method into the context of social science education. Concept-cartoons (CCs enable teachers to use the everyday life experiences and individual thoughts of the pupils as a positive enrichment tool within the learning processes. In this context, CCs are very suitable to function as a method to gain information about both the existing mental conceptions and the individual political judgment strategies. Through this, it is possible to put everyday life concepts and scientific knowledge in a constructive relationship, which finally enhances new learning objectives. First the article highlights the relevance of pupils’ and teachers` concepts for judgment processes. On this basis the method of CCs is introduced and evaluated.Der folgende Artikel beschäftigt sich mit den Möglichkeiten des methodischen Einsatzes von Concept-Cartoons im Rahmen sozialwissenschaftlichen Unterrichts.

  16. Cartoons on bacterial balloons: scientists' opinion on the popularization of synthetic biology.

    Domínguez, Martí; Mateu, Anna; Torgersen, Helge; Porcar, Manuel


    How do scientists perceive the media coverage of synthetic biology (SB)? In this paper, we approach this question by studying a set of cartoons devoted to SB. Based on a categorization of the cartoons into five large thematic groups an international survey was carried out to assess the opinion of SB research groups on science communication with regard to the public image of their discipline. The 101 responses obtained indicate that in general, their perception of the communication is not negative, although many respondents raised concerns on the media's inclination to sensationalism and over-simplification. However, the results also suggest that (in the light of the unfortunate experiences with GMO communication) scientists should think twice before proposing metaphorical interpretations of their research.

  2. Children’s identification processes with television characters: case studies about colombian children and their favorite cartoon programs.

    Luis Fernando Cuervo


    Full Text Available Through the articulation of psychoanalysis and narrative analysis this study explores the processes of identification of children audiences with their favorite cartoon television programs. In order to understand the characteristics of identification processes, this study explores the way in which both the structure of cartoons and the affective histories of children influence children’s identification with their favorite television characters. To achieve that understanding we a analyzed the narrative elements of the television programs, b explored the children’s affective history, and c examined how these narrative elements and affective histories influence the appropriation of television programs. These three scenarios were examined through case study on four Colombian children between 6 to 10 years old. The analysis showed that affective factors of children’s personal history constitute a significant source of mediation on the appropriation of cartoons. In addition, the narrative elements of the programs become an essential motivation on children’s fantasies.

  17. Automatic Tracing and Segmentation of Rat Mammary Fat Pads in MRI Image Sequences Based on Cartoon-Texture Model

    TU Shengxian; ZHANG Su; CHEN Yazhu; Freedman Matthew T; WANG Bin; XUAN Jason; WANG Yue


    The growth patterns of mammary fat pads and glandular tissues inside the fat pads may be related with the risk factors of breast cancer.Quantitative measurements of this relationship are available after segmentation of mammary pads and glandular tissues.Rat fat pads may lose continuity along image sequences or adjoin similar intensity areas like epidermis and subcutaneous regions.A new approach for automatic tracing and segmentation of fat pads in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) image sequences is presented,which does not require that the number of pads be constant or the spatial location of pads be adjacent among image slices.First,each image is decomposed into cartoon image and texture image based on cartoon-texture model.They will be used as smooth image and feature image for segmentation and for targeting pad seeds,respectively.Then,two-phase direct energy segmentation based on Chan-Vese active contour model is applied to partitioning the cartoon image into a set of regions,from which the pad boundary is traced iteratively from the pad seed.A tracing algorithm based on scanning order is proposed to accurately trace the pad boundary,which effectively removes the epidermis attached to the pad without any post processing as well as solves the problem of over-segmentation of some small holes inside the pad.The experimental results demonstrate the utility of this approach in accurate delineation of various numbers of mammary pads from several sets of MRI images.

  18. The Use of Cartoon to Investigate the Acquisition of Values in Primary Education: Case of Solidarity Values

    Ali ERSOY


    Full Text Available The purpose of this study is to examine the solidarity values of primary school students through using cartoons as assessment materials. The data were gathered from three different primary schools in Eskisehir in May 2008. The participants of the study were 207 primary school students, 120 of whom were 4th graders, whereas 87 of whom were 5th graders. The data collection tools included a worksheet with a cartoon and three open ended questions. The data were analyzed through using NVivo 7.0 Qualitative Data Analysis Software Program with constant comparison and descriptive analysis methods. The findings revealed that the participants’ perceptions based on the solidarity values show differences. Their perceptions related to the solidarity values were as follows; there should be solidarity in the case of problem solving, the outcomes of the solidarity behavior should not be negative, solidarity could be provided for the immediate interests (i.e., winning an election etc., and solidarity could be provided in order to sustain discipline. Concerning the findings of the study, it can be claimed that cartoons could be used as an instrument to examine the cases inwhich social values, norms, and regulations are introduced in primary education.

  19. Persuasive food marketing to children: use of cartoons and competitions in Australian commercial television advertisements.

    Kelly, Bridget; Hattersley, Libby; King, Lesley; Flood, Victoria


    While there is a recognized link between high levels of exposure to advertising of unhealthy foods and overweight and obesity among children, there is little research on the extent to which these exposures include persuasive marketing techniques. This study aimed to measure children's exposure to the use of persuasive marketing within television food advertisements. Advertisements broadcast on all three commercial Australian television channels were recorded for an equivalent 1 week period in May 2006 and 2007 (714 h). Food advertisements were analysed for their use of persuasive marketing, including premium offers, such as competitions, and the use of promotional characters, including celebrities and cartoon characters. Advertised foods were categorized as core, non-core or miscellaneous foods. Commercial data were purchased to determine children's peak viewing times and popular programs. A total of 20 201 advertisements were recorded, 25.5% of which were for food. Significantly more food advertisements broadcast during children's peak viewing times, compared to non-peak times, contained promotional characters (P premium offers (P premium offers, compared to 0.2 per hour during programs most popular with adults. The majority of advertisements containing persuasive marketing during all viewing periods were for non-core foods. Persuasive marketing techniques are frequently used to advertise non-core foods to children, to promote children's brand recognition and preference for advertised products. Future debate relating to television advertising regulations must consider the need to restrict the use of persuasive marketing techniques to children. PMID:18755740

  2. Iconography and Politics in South Africa: the representation of Nelson Mandela, Thabo Mbeki and Jacob Zuma in cartoons of Zapiro

    Renata de Paula dos Santos


    Full Text Available Mandela’s victory in the 1994 elections in South Africa is a reference point for South African history and represented the transition from apartheid to multiracial democracy. Since then Nelson Mandela (1994-1999, Thabo Mbeki (1999-2008 and Jacob Zuma (2009 - current, occupied the post of president of the country and led, each in its own way, the new direction of the country. During the nearly twenty years of multiracial democracy, one in particular cartoonist, Jonathan Shapiro, popularly known by the pseudonym Zapiro, portrayed the everyday life of this story. In this sense, the objective of this research is to analyze how Zapiro portrayed the political and social aspects, as well as the psychological characteristics of each of the three postapartheid presidents and which social representations are formed from their cartoon production. The choice of Zapiro explained by openly declared his opposition to apartheid and also for being the best known outside South African cartoonist. We elected to cartoon as an object of study because it is an iconographic object constituted by communicative humor, which adds to its constitution arguments transgression of the established order, enabling an analysis of South African history through a critical bias. As methods for the development of the work, we decided to gather historical research, the literature search and analysis of cartooon speech. Among the theoretical frameworks stand out Magnoli (1998, 2009, Jonge (1991 and Carlin (2009 in the South African question; reflections about social representations, we resort to Moscovici (2011 and Jodelet (1993, in the field the cartoon and humor, the references are Miani (2005; 2012, Romualdo (2000 and Eco (1989. With the completion of the analysis, we observed that Zapiro acts in different ways in the construction of the representation of each of the presidents in question and that the cartoonist presents Mandela as a competent leader marked by heroism and

    Full Text Available The graphic satire label encompasses different trends in cartoon art, especially in Britain. Although the hate cartoon tradition actually represents a minority of published cartoons, it has been especially remarkable since the First World War. In various confrontational contexts, great artists feature in this tradition, ranging from Edmund Sullivan (1869-1933 to one of the leading cartoonists in the present generation, Steve Bell. This article focuses on aspects of the specific graphic rhetoric to be found in these images, and on their political impact as well as their echo in the media. The issues that cartoonists have recurringly been trying to bring up are also considered.

  13. “A Campaign Won as a Public Issue Will Stay Won”: Using Cartoons and Comics to Fight National Health Care Reform, 1940s and Beyond

    Knoblauch, Heidi Katherine


    On March 23, 2010, President Barack Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) into law. As it went through Congress, the legislation faced forceful resistance. Individuals and organizations opposing the ACA circulated propaganda that varied from photographs of fresh graves or coffins with the caption “Result of ObamaCare” to portrayals of President Obama as the Joker from the Batman movies, captioned with the single word “socialism.” The arguments embedded in these images have striking parallels to cartoons circulated by physicians to their patients in earlier fights against national health care. Examining cartoons used in the formative health care reform debates of the 1940s provides a means for tracing the lineage of emotional arguments employed against health care reform. PMID:24328659

  14. Deictic Reference as a Means for Constructing the Character Image in a Dubbed Cartoon Snow Postman: Comparative Analysis of the Lithuanian, Russian and English Versions

    Danguolė Satkauskaitė


    Full Text Available The article aims at examining how the main character Snowman’s image is constructed by applying an abundant number of deictic expressions in the Lithuanian, Russian and English versions of the cartoon Snow Postman. The research was based on M. Consten’s conception of direct and indirect reference and the model of visual-verbal cohesion proposed by N. Baumgarten. The study has revealed that in both, Russian and Lithuanian versions of the cartoon, the main character’s dialogues are loaded with deictic expressions which mark the same referents. In this way, the main character is shaped as a dull, forgetful being, unable to store and process a huge amount of information in his head. In the English version, deictic instances are sparsely used, thus the character image is quite different here: the snowman is less absent-minded and fuzzy.

  17. Mentalization of complex emotions in borderline personality disorder: The impact of parenting and exposure to trauma on the performance in a novel cartoon-based task.

    Brüne, Martin; Walden, Sarah; Edel, Marc-Andreas; Dimaggio, Giancarlo


    Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is characterized by a range of interpersonal difficulties, which are, in part, related to adverse experiences during childhood. Unresponsive parenting and traumatization may cause functional impairment of mentalization, i.e. the ability to reflect upon own and others' mental states. However, the relationship of poor parenting, trauma and mentalization in BPD has not exhaustively been studied. Thirty patients diagnosed with BPD and 30 matched control subjects were asked to sequence a novel cartoon-based mentalization task involving complex emotions such as jealousy, shame, guilt etc. In addition, they were required to reason about cognitive and affective mental states of the cartoon characters. The quality of parental care was assessed using a self-report measure for recalled parental rearing style, and childhood trauma was measured in retrospect using the Childhood Trauma Questionnaire. Patients with BPD performed more poorly in all aspects of the cartoon task. Mentalizing skills, particularly relating to affective mental states, were uniquely associated with the quality of recalled parental care and childhood trauma. Together, the quality of parental care and the experience of childhood trauma negatively impact on mentalization in BPD, even in an experimental "offline" task. PMID:26350276

  18. 基于几何结构的2.5D卡通建模%2 . 5 D Cartoon Modeling Based on Geometric Structure

    刘艳; 胡艳宏; 孙战利


    二维卡通制作技术大致分为计算机辅助2D卡通动画制作和利用3D建模技术渲染生成动画。将两者结合,提出一种2.5D卡通制作模型,通过几何结构的旋转进行纹理贴图,并构造卡通的旋转过程。在2D动画中,一个卡通形象本身隐含几何结构,将卡通形象定义为由只含一个典型几何结构卡通元素构成的卡通对象,利用典型几何结构二维投影变化规律,构建相应结构卡通元素的变形算法,分析长方体和球体卡通元素在转动时投影的变化规律,给出基于这些规律实现相应结构卡通元素伪3D转动效果的算法。通过长方体、球体、圆柱体进行旋转的实验结果证明了算法的有效性。%Technologies of 2 D cartoon animation can be roughly categorized into two types:one is computer-aided 2 D cartoon animation,and the other is rendering 3D models. These two both have their own pros and cons. So this paper proposes a way which combines both of them,that is 2. 5D cartoon modelling method which constructs the rotation of the cartoon by texture mapping. In 2D animation,a character has an implicit geometry structure. So in this paper,it defines a character as a cartoon object composed of only one typical geometry structure. This paper builds the deformation algorithm of corresponding structure through the two dimensional projection transformation of typical geometries. Detailed analysis of projection transformation patterns of rectangular and sphere are provided. Based on patterns founded,this paper provides algorithm for implementing pseudo-3D rotation effects for the corresponding carton elements, and gives the results of cuboid,sphere and cylinder to support the validity of the algorithm.

  19. 1/f 2 Characteristics and isotropy in the fourier power spectra of visual art, cartoons, comics, mangas, and different categories of photographs.

    Michael Koch

    Full Text Available Art images and natural scenes have in common that their radially averaged (1D Fourier spectral power falls according to a power-law with increasing spatial frequency (1/f(2 characteristics, which implies that the power spectra have scale-invariant properties. In the present study, we show that other categories of man-made images, cartoons and graphic novels (comics and mangas, have similar properties. Further on, we extend our investigations to 2D power spectra. In order to determine whether the Fourier power spectra of man-made images differed from those of other categories of images (photographs of natural scenes, objects, faces and plants and scientific illustrations, we analyzed their 2D power spectra by principal component analysis. Results indicated that the first fifteen principal components allowed a partial separation of the different image categories. The differences between the image categories were studied in more detail by analyzing whether the mean power and the slope of the power gradients from low to high spatial frequencies varied across orientations in the power spectra. Mean power was generally higher in cardinal orientations both in real-world photographs and artworks, with no systematic difference between the two types of images. However, the slope of the power gradients showed a lower degree of mean variability across spectral orientations (i.e., more isotropy in art images, cartoons and graphic novels than in photographs of comparable subject matters. Taken together, these results indicate that art images, cartoons and graphic novels possess relatively uniform 1/f(2 characteristics across all orientations. In conclusion, the man-made stimuli studied, which were presumably produced to evoke pleasant and/or enjoyable visual perception in human observers, form a subset of all images and share statistical properties in their Fourier power spectra. Whether these properties are necessary or sufficient to induce aesthetic

  2. fMRI activation of the fusiform gyrus and amygdala to cartoon characters but not to faces in a boy with autism.

    Grelotti, David J; Klin, Ami J; Gauthier, Isabel; Skudlarski, Pawel; Cohen, Donald J; Gore, John C; Volkmar, Fred R; Schultz, Robert T


    Abnormal hypoactivation in the amygdala and fusiform gyrus, brain areas that participate in face processing and social cognition, has consistently been demonstrated in persons with autism. We investigated activity in these areas in a boy with autism, DD, who had a special interest in "Digimon" cartoon characters. DD individuates Digimon faster than familiar faces and objects, but he individuates familiar faces no faster than objects. In contrast, a typically developing boy with an interest in "Pokemon" cartoon characters is equally fast at individuating faces and Pokemon and faster at individuating faces and Pokemon than objects and Digimon. In addition, using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), we show that DD activates his amygdala and fusiform gyrus for perceptual discriminations involving Digimon but not for those involving familiar or unfamiliar faces. This pattern of activation is not seen in the typically developing control with an interest in Pokemon or in a second comparison case who has autism but no interest in Digimon. These results have important implications for our understanding of autism, cortical face specialization, and the possible role of the amygdala in the development of perceptual expertise.

  3. Influence of food companies' brand mascots and entertainment companies' cartoon media characters on children's diet and health: a systematic review and research needs.

    Kraak, V I; Story, M


    Reducing the extent and persuasive power of marketing unhealthy foods to children worldwide are important obesity prevention goals. Research is limited to understand how brand mascots and cartoon media characters influence children's diet. We conducted a systematic review of five electronic databases (2000-2014) to identify experimental studies that measured how food companies' mascots and entertainment companies' media characters influence up to 12 diet-related cognitive, behavioural and health outcomes for children under 12 years. Eleven studies met the inclusion criteria. Studies used 21 unique popular media characters, but no brand mascots. Results suggest that cartoon media character branding can positively increase children's fruit or vegetable intake compared with no character branding. However, familiar media character branding is a more powerful influence on children's food preferences, choices and intake, especially for energy-dense and nutrient-poor foods (e.g. cookies, candy or chocolate) compared with fruits or vegetables. Future research should use a theoretically grounded conceptual model and larger and more diverse samples across settings to produce stronger findings for mediating and moderating factors. Future research can be used to inform the deliberations of policymakers, practitioners and advocates regarding how media character marketing should be used to support healthy food environments for children.

  9. Sombras literárias: a fotonovela e a produção cultural Literary shadows: the strip cartoon and cultural production

    André Luiz Joanilho


    Full Text Available As fotonovelas tiveram um mercado cativo por mais de 25 anos no Brasil, e milhões de leitores consumiram ansiosamente histórias publicadas em revistas com larga circulação nacional. No entanto, foram ignoradas quase que completamente por críticos e estudiosos e consideradas um subgênero da literatura. Seus leitores foram marcados, entre outros aspectos, como de baixa formação cultural e possuidores de parcos rendimentos. Entretanto, seria possível para o historiador não reconhecer a leitura de fotonovelas como uma manifestação de práticas sociais? Poderia a cultura de massa ter criado um conjunto enorme de leitores sem face e sem gosto? Estas questões nos permitem pensar as representações sociais femininas no Brasil e as práticas de leitura das décadas de 1950 e 1960.Strip cartoons had a captive market for more than twenty years in Brazil and millions of readers eagerly consumed stories published in magazines with national circulation. Nevertheless this type of vehicle was almost completely ignored by scholars and considered a sub-genre of literature, and its reading public considered as of low cultural capacity and low income level. However, is it possible for the historian not to recognize cartoon strips as a social practice? Could mass culture have created an enormous number of readers without face and taste? These questions bring to the fore the feminist social movements in Brazil and the reading practices of the fifties and sixties.

    刘登志; 卢书芳; 万贤美; 金小刚


    This paper presents a novel method for generating 3D real-time cartoon animation. We first use the Laplacian of Gaussian (LoG) filter to process the motion capture data, which results in a more “alive” or “animated” animation style. Then, we use the analogy to heat equilibrium to automatically rig the mesh model. After that, we retarget the filtered data to the rigged mesh model and generate cartoon animation sequences. The spherical blend skinning (SBS) is employed to avoid collapse and candy wrapper artifacts, which costs low computation and memory space. The advantage of the presented method lies in its simplicity and real-time performance. Experiments show that our approach can produce satisfactory results. The system is easy to use even for novices.%为了实现虚拟角色的三维卡通运动,提出一种结合卡通滤波与骨骼模型自动绑定的实时生成算法.首先运用高斯拉普拉斯算子对捕获的运动数据进行滤波,然后用热量平衡的原理来自动绑定给定的人体模型,最后将滤波后的运动数据加载到绑定好的模型中,生成卡通化的夸张的动画序列.为了避免出现"collapse"和"candy wrapper"等走样现象,采用了SBS算法对网格进行变形.运动捕获数据滤波与蒙皮过程均使用GPU进行了加速.实验结果表明,运用该算法生成的动画效果满足动画法则,网格变形后表面光滑,用户交互简单.

    洪朝群; 陈旭辉


    针对视频的卡通风格化存在着处理速度慢和连续帧中边缘视觉效果差的问题,提出具有高实时性的视频卡通风格化处理方法。该方法主要包括扩展非线性扩散、边缘检测、彩色量化和融合4个步骤。边缘检测算法基于高斯-拉普拉斯算子进行改进,速度更快而且在连续帧中视觉效果更好;在扩展非线性扩散和色彩量化的过程中利用查表法获取滤波系数和量化值,避免了对每一个像素计算高斯方程和量化方程,进一步提高了速度;同时,在传输过程中对边缘图像和量化图像采取分离编码进行传输,降低了码率。实验证明,在视频聊天、在线游戏等实时性要求高的应用场合中,该方法对人脸和景物都取得了良好的卡通风格化效果。%Cartoon-like stylization for video suffers the problems of low speed and unpleasant visual effect of edges in contiguous frames. In this paper, a novel approach of cartoon-like stylization for video is presented, which works well for occasions with a high real-time requirement. Generally speaking, this approach consists of four steps:extended nonlinear diffusion, edge detection, color quantization and fusion. In this approach, the edge detection algorithm is improved based on the Laplacian of Gaussian ( LOG ) . It is faster and has better visual effect of edges in contiguous frames. In addition to that, an implementation based on querying the tables of filter coefficients and quantization values is used in extended nonlinear diffusion and color quantization. It avoids computing Gaussian function and quantization function for each pixel and further improves the speed of the proposed method. Furthermore, the encoding process of the edge picture and quantized picture are separated, which reduces the bit-rate. The experimental results show that the proposed method performs well on the human faces and scenery in the circumstances of video chatting and

  17. Britannia : Grandeur et infortune d’une allégorie nationale dans l’univers du cartoon britannique 1842-1999 Britannia: Greatness and Misfortune of a National Symbol in the World of British Cartoons 1842-1999

    Gilbert Millat


    Full Text Available Britannia, sometimes accompanied by the emblematic British Lion, has long been personifying justice, liberty, and the British Empire on coins and stamps as well as in graphic satire. Originally of Roman origin, she became the visual representation of Britain after being revived in the sixteenth century. This article is based on the analysis of over four hundred cartoons featuring this symbol. It argues that between 1860 and the 1950s, Britannia striking a solemn pose, that of the Græco-Roman goddess created by Tenniel, exalted Victorian greatness and the early twentieth century great power twice victorious in the World Wars. On the other hand, since the inter-war years, Low and his followers had been challenging this supposedly immutable image. They turned her into a definitely helpless and obsolete symbol whose identity was sometimes usurped by such anti-heroes as Colonel Blimp. Finally, from the 1960s, in a context of continuous British decline and growing permissiveness, cartoonists increasingly followed the example of the old masters of 18th century caricature and early Punch cartoonists, even though aggressiveness and vulgarity have remained much less explicit.

  19. Research of human hair animation generation technology in cartoon%一种卡通动画中人物头发运动生成技术研究



    This paper introduces a new hybrid technique for human hair animation in cartoon , which allows the animators to create attractive and controllable hair animations without having to draw everything by hand except a sparse set of keyframes. This method demonstrates how to give a cel-animation character accentuated hair motion. The novelty of this approach is that we neither simply interpolate the key frames nor generate the movement of the hair only using physical simulations. From a small number of rough sketches we prepare key frames that are used as indicators of hair motion. The hair movements are created based on a hair motion database built from physical simulations custom-designed by the animator. Hair animations with constraints from the key frames can be generated in two stages: a matching process to search for the desired motion sequences from the database and then smoothly connect them; the discrepancies between the database sequences and the key frames are interpolated throughout the animation using transition function.%介绍了一种新的卡通动画中人物头发运动的混合技术,使动画师们能方便地创作出有吸引力和可控性的头发运动效果,而不需要手工对头发运动表现过程进行逐帧绘制,仅设置好所需的一些关键帧画面。该技术方法演示如何根据给出的手绘卡通人物角色动作配以相应的头发运动效果。这种方法的新颖之处是,既不是简单地插入关键帧来获得头发运动效果,也不是通过物理模拟的方式来生成头发飘逸的动画,而是从动画师预先准备好的少量的作为关键帧草图的头发运动效果,建立物理模拟动画数据库,根据此数据库中头发的运动效果来创建出特定头发运动动画。此方法生成的头发动画分两个阶段完成,首先是在数据库中搜索对应的运动效果画面,然后顺利连接;其次数据库序列的关键帧之间的过渡帧由在动画中运

    Full Text Available Partindo do ponto que o homem é considerado um ser simbólico e influenciado diretamente pelos aspectos sociais e culturais, o seu imaginário é totalmente estimulado por tudo e todos que estão a sua volta, principalmente na contemporaneidade, quando o que está em voga é a infância, a TV e suas brincadeiras. Este estudo objetivou conhecer a dinâmica brincante entre os heróis de alguns desenhos animados (Power Rangers, Ben 10, Homem Aranha e Homem de Ferro e a orientação estética desta teia de relações, a partir das metáforas e construções teóricas de Ariès, Brougère, Jones, Huizinga, Morin, Sutton-Smith, dentre outros. Partindo do pressuposto que a criança utiliza a sua imaginação para brincar com o que está ao seu redor e que os objetos que compõem este meio também podem influenciá-la, foram formuladas as seguintes indagações: como o processo de identificação com o desenho animado age para suscitar a imaginação das crianças? Como a agressividade permeia suas brincadeiras? Foram realizadas entrevistas com sete crianças de cinco anos de idade da Educação Infantil de uma Escola Municipal de Cuiabá/MT. O texto apresentou a importância de ter uma percepção sensível sobre a relação que a criança faz com seus heróis midiáticos: a escolha da brincadeira, a preferência do personagem e os comportamentos lúdico-agressivos presentes neste momento. Isso possibilitou uma experiência estética, de mostrar a linguagem lúdica da criança ao interpretar à sua maneira o conteúdo dos desenhos animados.Starting from the point of view that the man is considered to be a symbolic being and directly influenced by social and cultural aspects, his imagination is fully stimulated by everything and everyone that is around him, especially when what is in vogue in contemporaneity is childhood, TV and playing.

  11. Particle dynamics of a cartoon dune

    Groh, Christopher; Kruelle, Christof A


    The spatio-temporal evolution of a downsized model for a desert dune is observed experimentally in a narrow water flow channel. A particle tracking method reveals that the migration speed of the model dune is one order of magnitude smaller than that of individual grains. In particular, the erosion rate consists of comparable contributions from creeping (low energy) and saltating (high energy) particles. The saltation flow rate is slightly larger, whereas the number of saltating particles is one order of magnitude lower than that of the creeping ones. The velocity field of the saltating particles is comparable to the velocity field of the driving fluid. It can be observed that the spatial profile of the shear stress reaches its maximum value upstream of the crest, while its minimum lies at the downstream foot of the dune. The particle tracking method reveals that the deposition of entrained particles occurs primarily in the region between these two extrema of the shear stress. Moreover, it is demonstrated that...

    Full Text Available We aim at enumerating cognitive strategies required to the comprehension of meanings involved in humor, specifically in little comics. We briefly summarize studies in the construction of humoristic comics. Afterwards, we present studies about sociocognitive approach (VAN DIJK, 2012; KOCH, 2011 of text comprehension, presenting our problem. We present and analyze a text from Níquel Náusea comics series, by Fernando Gonsales. Our results underline the need of interpreting verbal and non-verbal elements, identifying the comicalness character of semiologic elements, recognizing the humoristic comics genre, evocating situations from verbal and non-verbal elements and, finally, identifying plausibility. We conclude that these cognitive operations have different grades of importance for the humor comprehension of humoristic comics, remarkably the evocation of scenes through semiologic elements.

  1. Dimensional reduction in numerical relativity: Modified cartoon formalism and regularization

    Cook, William G; Kunesch, Markus; Sperhake, Ulrich; Tunyasuvunakool, Saran


    We present in detail the Einstein equations in the Baumgarte-Shapiro-Shibata-Nakamura formulation for the case of $D$ dimensional spacetimes with $SO(D-d)$ isometry based on a method originally introduced in Ref.1. Regularized expressions are given for a numerical implementation of this method on a vertex centered grid including the origin of the quasi-radial coordinate that covers the extra dimensions with rotational symmetry. Axisymmetry, corresponding to the value $d=D-2$, represents a special case with fewer constraints on the vanishing of tensor components and is conveniently implemented in a variation of the general method. The robustness of the scheme is demonstrated for the case of a black-hole head-on collision in $D=7$ spacetime dimensions with $SO(4)$ symmetry.

    BASARAN INCE, Gokcen


    For the peripheral modernisation projects, women have oftenly been the face of a rapidly modenising nation, shifting it from one civilisation to the other. The body of the women, its presentation and limits have always had connotative meanings, circumscribing their individuality within the identity of a nation. These assumptions are also valid for the modernisation case in Turkey in which women represented a vast transformation toward a Western and secular society. Granting of the suffrage ri...

  14. The route of ´The sitting woman´. The cartoons of Copi between Paris and Buenos Aires

    Isabel Plante


    Full Text Available During the 1960’ –those years marked by the growth of cultural industry and political radicalization in diverse points of the world–  the cultural field was shaped by the tensions between ‘Art’ and ‘minor culture’ or between visual production and political commitment. In this context, the multiple activity of Copi makes him a key case since it fluently traveled trough narrative writing, dramaturgy and graphic humor. Living in Paris since 1962, Copi created for the newspaper Le Nouvel Observateur the character that made this argentine artist famous in France, La Femme Assise (The sitting woman. Conceived for the massive audience of the modernized press of the 1960’, his strips questioned –with corrosive nonsense– middle sectors in expansion at both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. This paper tackles precisely with this sort of geographic and linguistic swinging mediated by Copi’s foreignness. This without eluding nor the graphic humor’s specificities, nor larger cultural phenomenon of the 1960’s like the internationalization of the urban culture and the fading of the borders of the artistic fields.

  11. Infancia, dibujos animados y televisión pública. La difusión de valores y contravalores en la producción española y argentina Childhood, cartoons and public television. The diffusion of the values and disvalues in the Spanish and Argentinian production

    Gabriela Fabbro


    Full Text Available La exposición a los medios 'cultiva' la forma de comprender el mundo asentando creencias, representaciones mentales y actitudes que llegan a modificar la concepción de la realidad. Ante esta situación, la audiencia infantil es la que más interesa ya que consume productos audiovisuales en un momento de formación en la que preocupa qué ven en televisión y cómo lo interpretan. Por ello, y por ser un público vulnerable que aprende y aprehende lo que les viene impuesto, el objetivo de este trabajo es comprobar el compromiso de la televisión pública en España y Argentina por producir contenidos adecuados para los niños y niñas. Mediante una metodología cualitativa, y usando como herramienta de abordaje el análisis de contenido, se ha podido demostrar que ambos países difunden programas infantiles basados en valores. Aunque este trabajo tiene las limitaciones propias de un diseño experimental basado en un número de observaciones limitadas, los resultados son relevantes para demostrar que desde la perspectiva del discurso televisivo como informador y formador, la televisión pública de ambos países contribuye al enriquecimiento cognitivo de los niños y niñas que los consume, potenciando así la educación en valores. The media exposure ‘cultivate’ the way to understand the world by setting beliefs, mental representations and attitudes that change the conception of reality. In this situation, childish audience is the most interesting one because it consumes audiovisual products in a formative stage in which it worries what they watch on TV and how they interpret it. By then, being a vulnerable audience that learn and apprehend what is imposed to them, the aim of this study is to confirm the agreement of the public television in Spain and Argentina to produce suited contents for children. By a qualitative methodology, and by using the analysis of content as a tool, it has been shown that both countries broadcast children programmes based on values. Although this study has its own limitations of experimental design based on a limited number of observations, the results are important for demonstrating that from the perspective of the television speech as reporter and former, public television of both countries contribute to children’s cognitive knowledge that consume it, strengthening to education on values.

  15. Violence in Playboy magazine: a longitudinal analysis.

    Scott, J E; Cuvelier, S J


    This paper analyzes the amount of violence in cartoons and pictorials from January 1954, through December 1983 in Playboy magazine. Inasmuch as the Attorney General's Commission on Pornography and Obscenity has focused upon magazines such as Playboy as potentially harmful to society because of the violence merged with sex, such an analysis is appropriate at this time. Each cartoon and pictorial for each issue of Playboy for the 30-year-period was examined for violent depictions. The average number of violent cartoons for the 30-year-period was 6.92/year or 0.58/issue. The average number of violent pictorials was less with an average of 1.89/year or 0.16/issue. The ratio of violent cartoons or pictorials to the total number of cartoons or pictorials was small. The ratio of violent cartoons to all cartoons was 25.2/1000 and for violent pictorials to all pictorials it was 8.6/1000. Moreover, the ratio of violent cartoons to total pages was 2.86/1000 and for violent pictorials 0.78/1000 pages. Although the overall number and ratio of violent cartoons and pictorials in Playboy over the 30-year-period examined was rare, a major question addressed was whether the amount of violence was increasing. Rather than a linear relation, a curvilinear relationship was observed with the amount of violence on the decrease in recent years. Although the effects of violence in sexual material is still being debated, those who argue for greater censorship of magazines such as Playboy because of its depictions of violence need a new rationale to justify their position.

  5. The “animalized humans” – the reformulated body

    Buhl, Mie

    This contribution will discuss the phenomenon of the so-called Japanese Cat Girls who practice the behavior of cats as a contradiction to Disney's cartoon where animals have a human character. From Disney cartoons we experience how animals are being humanized and are representing human character...... to a degree where it becomes difficult to see them as animals. This is just one example of how animals are attributed with a human character. A trend among keepers of humanizing their pets has emerged, which sometimes goes beyond the interests of the animals’ welfare – as animals. The pets are equipped...... with props that appear to satisfy the owner's need instead of the needs of animal itself and make the animal look like a cartoon character. Pictures of animals represent a large variation of representation forms and genres where Disney represents an example of a cartoon culture of humanized animals...

  7. Konstrukcija spolov v Disneyevi risanki Mulan:

    Kolar Sluga, Breda


    The text addresses gender construction in the cartoon Mulan, produced in the 1990's by one of the leading family entertainment studios, Disney. The cartoon is unique in its choice of a female hero who makes her own decisions on her life, changing the established image and behavioural patterns of her community in the process. An in-depth analysis, however, shows that she is a single exception in an entirely patriarchal society, and that her - and consequently Disney's - achievement belongs to ...

  10. It only hurts when you produce : ten years of federal/provincial conflict over oil industry revenue sharing

    This book presents a collection of more than 300 cartoons which were published in 'Oilweek Magazine' between February 1973 and 1983. For the oil industry, this decade represented a time of increased provincial royalties and rising federal taxation. The cartoons depict the ongoing federal-provincial conflict over oil industry revenue sharing. The implication of the title is that while federal and provincial governments each determined the oil industry to be their own golden goose, the goose concluded that future demands for golden eggs would be painful to satisfy. At the time, the cartoons were submitted anonymously, but were well received by 'Oilweek' readers. In 1986, Amoco Regional Petroleum Engineering Supervisor Don Smith, revealed that he was the anonymous artist

  8. Monastic Musings

    Francisco; Little


    My eyes kept being drawn to the cartoon cutout characters on the bobbing bus ceiling. Mickey Mouse and Pluto werepasted in between metallic paper roses, hearts and butterflies. It all seemed incongruous hovering over an eclectic collection of rural pas- sengers, jabbering in a jarring dialect, crammed into a bus chugging its way into the mountains high above Xining.

  10. Can that really happen? Children's knowledge about the reality status of fantastical events in television.

    Li, Hui; Boguszewski, Katherine; Lillard, Angeline S


    Although popular children's cartoons are replete with fantastical events, we know little about whether children understand that these events are fantastical rather than real. In Study 1, 54 children ages 4 to 6 years and 18 adults were shown 10 real and 10 fantastical events portrayed in 4s video clips from a popular cartoon. After viewing each clip, participants were asked to judge the reality status of the event and to explain their judgments. Results indicated that even 4-year-olds have a fairly good understanding of fantastical events in animated cartoons but that they underestimate the reality status of real events in such cartoons. In Study 2, 35 4- to 6-year-olds and 18 adults watched video clips of 10 real and 10 fantastical events performed by real people from a Chinese television show. Once again, 4-year-olds underestimated the reality status of real events shown on television. However, against the "real" backdrop in this study, 4-year-olds also judged nearly half of the fantastical events to be real. The implications for children's reality-fantasy discrimination and their media viewing are discussed. PMID:26094241
