Anyone remember this particular episode? This was one of the Season 3 episodes, and happened to air the day AFTER Bill Clinton (with plenty of help from Ross Perot) defeated incumbent George H.W. Bush.

I'm sure I've seen it, but I don't remember it off the top of my head.

In that episode, Buster and Babs find that toon characters are being put out of commission by the ACAFC (Adult Corporation against Funny Cartoons) chair woman who hates unrealistic comical violence. The chair woman's actions put Acme Acres at stake with Plucky collaborating. Babs and Buster head off to Washington to seek help from the President, but agreement from politicians is required. After Buster and Babs have a conflict with the chair woman in the congress centre they restore the toons and save Acme Acres all together.

Ah, one of the many "political correctness" episodes. I kinda think they did this better on Animaniacs with Valuable Lesson and Bully for Skippy. This one's dated itself with all the many political references. :|

I wonder how that woman would feel about more modern cartoons :?: :lol:

Dispite the dated references, it still has a good message. Cartoons were meant for comedy so making them educational would make them boring. That being said there are some good educational cartoons out there, like Arthur and Martha Speaks. Bully for Skippy was great because of how unconventional it was. Most teachers and after school specials teach you that all bullies are emotionally damaged and are picking on you so they can feel better. That episode showed that some bullies are jerks that think it's funny to make someone miserable. Also there are the techneques the teachers teach to use: Tell an adult, tell him you don't like it, befriend the bully, ignore the bully. Those rarely if ever work. Bully for Skippy showed that when all else fails, violence is necessary. The bully only does it when he thinks he can get away with it and that proves him wrong.
