In the News: “Tooning” Out? Or Selling Out?

In recent years, there has been growing awareness of the so-called “Ex-Toon” movement. Centered around so-called “cartoon reparative therapy,” its supporters claim it can help cartoons abandon their so-called unnatural lifestyles and lead so-called “normal” lives. Claims so-called Dr. Cliff Fabulo of the activist group All Four Fingers, “cartoonism is fraught with peril: explosions, falling anvils, guns that go off when you look in them… we show cartoons that change is not only necessary, but possible.”

But not all are convinced. “We’re not bad, we’re just drawn that way,” claims Koko, spokesclown for ToonPride. “This therapy teaches cartoons to be ashamed of who they are, with tragic results. In extreme cases, cartoons undergo dangerous reality-reassignment surgery to appear more normal.” In this recent photo, Pluto meets a heartbroken Mickey Mouse for the first time since the procedure.

If Looks Could Kill…

… this look would be a catering company run by Hannibal Lecter.

… this look would be the Death Star, specially modified to launch more Death Stars.

…this look would be Miss Scarlett, in the library, with the revolver, and the lead pipe, and the wrench, and the shoulder-mounted rocket launcher, and the carton of angry hornets.

… this look would be a runaway freight train, a three-mile stampede of angry wildebeest, an army of enraged zombie clowns, the final chase scene from “The Road Warrior,” and twelve tons of flaming space debris all crashing at the same time into a nuclear waste storage facility outside of Pahrump, Nevada during an earthquake.
