It's sad that Pepe Le Pew has been officially announced as retired / banned by Warner Bros. He's a satirical character. He's a romantic who's probably watched many romantic movies and read many romance novels but lacks experience in relationships and no one ever told him about boundaries, consent, respect, etc. Today's culture seems different. Satire & Slapstick Comedy doesn't seem to be as popular as it used to be. I love it because I feel artistically and creatively that it relates to this quote. " Art Should Disturb The Comfortable And Comfort The Disturbed. " I don't think any of this reinforces crime and abuse. It's satire. But culture is different now. It's very commodity focused rather than about life in my opinion. Not everything is for everyone, not everyone can find this kind of humor healing. We all heal differently. Spiritually, through music, etc. The world needs love, but we live in a world of hate, fear, sadness & pain unfortunately. I don't think reform, commodifying,

It's been an interesting week. I was wondering how would Miss Piggy & Pepe Le Pew respond to the Cancel Culture controversies surrounding them. I'm very happy that the originals are available on the streaming services but unfortunately there's people reacting to them negatively. There's this strong demand for "positive media representation" in characters. And to me, this explains why many favorites in pop culture history aren't as good as the originals in my opinion. Many comedy characters were satirical. But today, people think such characters are negatively reinforcing crime & abuse. And unfortunately, it's nothing new because satire has always been controversial & misunderstood. And the thing is satire and slapstick comedy has been apart of cartoons and puppetry just as long as the art form's existence in history. To me, it's artist tradition. I wish there was more cultural appreciation. But instead, art is looked at as a commodity, instead of what art and entertainment really

One of my favorite parts about Jim Henson : The Biography by Brian Jay Jones is how it mentions that Jim Henson took the MBTI ( Myers Briggs Personality Test ) & resulted as " Idealist " ( aka INFP ) . As an INFP myself, I find this accurate. :) Check out Jim Henson : The Biography by Brian Jay Jones right here. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0345526112/ #infp #infps #jimhenson #mbti #myersbriggs #personalitytype #personalitytypes #muppets #themuppetshow #jimhensonsmuppets
