Cartoon is an entertainment part in our life which gives lots of fun to our children. In our day today life where children has almost no place to play outside, cartoon is the thing that brings laughter in the face of a child. However will it be appropriate for us to judge cartoon by only one characteristic, that it only brings laughter to a face of a child? If the answer is positive then now is the time to think about our judgment again. A question may arise how or why? For example like-Tom & Jerry cartoon inform people why cartoon has bad side also. Tom &Jerry is a very popular cartoon. Tom &Jerry are fictional character, where Jerry is very clever and Tom is little bit of a fool. In this cartoon both of them are fighting with different instruments, which seems funny. But the funny thing which is shown, it is very dangerous for child because in this age children learn those activities from cartoon and want to apply in real life But now-a-days cartoons negative impact makes our children spoil. Now-a-days cartoons continue to play an important role in popular culture and have a magnificent future. In the seventies several classic cartoons
were censored when broadcast on television because they were considered a bad influence on children. For example- Tom &Jerry were singled out because the cartoons often showcased explosions, gunshots, physical deformations and weapons. Cartoo
n characters however always survive these actions which, in the eyes of critics, is an unrealistic message to children who mig
ht believe when you hurt or kill someone he will remain unharmed.
It increases aggressiveness and anti-social behavior, makes children less sensitive to violence and to victims of violence, and it increases their appetite for more violence in entertainment and in real life. Cartoon violence damaging to the children, because they cannot tell the difference between real life and fantasy.
