I used to watch a ton of Looney Tunes as a kid. For some reason, I remember some adults arguing these cartoons were bad for kids… That the cartoon antics would somehow inspire kids to recreate these violent displays in real life.

I for one think that the Road Runner cartoons would be pretty good for kids. They’d find creative ways to assemble large, Rube Goldberg-type devices. It would encourage creativity and manual dexterity in kids, not to mention skills in math, physics, and trigonometry. The only real downside is that all the kids who were smart enough to accurately assemble these contraptions would probably be killed by them.
