Anne Berke: A Companion Piece to "Nips the Nips"

Some issues and questions to consider when watching this cartoon include:

  • How have the writers and animators of this cartoon produced a work that speaks to both adults and children?
  • How does the stereotyped comedy about Germans differ from that of Japanese in "Nips the Nips"? ("Herr Meets Hare," incidentally, was also unofficially banned from television, but not nearly as stringently as "Nips the Nips.")
  • On the subject of banned materials, does the circulation of cartoons like these do more harm or good?
