    I appreciate the intention but I do wish there would be more detail specifically about why the episodes are potentially harmful. People talking about “it’s meant for kids, don’t take it so seriously” seem to be missing the fact that children mirror adults as part of their development. However seemingly innocuous, racist caricatures are degrading and showing them to kids only serves to cement the idea that they’re somehow acceptable.
