This whole article is handled in a tremendously delicate, tasteful manner.

In light of the recent Bert and Ernie non-scandal, in which Sesame Street was compelled to released a statement saying that the two beloved characters were “just friends” and not gay, we at Screen Junkies have decided to address this issue head-on.

Puppets are asexual. All children’s characters are. There is no room in children’s entertainment for sexuality. There’s plenty of time for that stuff later on. Kids shouldn’t be in a hurry to grow up.

BUT…

If we were to assign sexual orientations to children’s characters, these guys would be totes gay.

9. Captain Planet


If recent history has demonstrated anything, it’s that the homosexual community often leads the charge on many social and political issues, even outside of gay rights. So it should be no surprise that, well before Leonardo DiCaprio was driving a Prius, and Cameron Diaz was saving rainforests, Captain Planet was extolling the virtues of recycling and going green. Of course, it wouldn’t be fair to use this as the sole barometer for one’s sexual orientation, otherwise, we would have to take a long look at Al Gore. That’s right, I planted that seed.

Also, Captain Planet is the textbook definition of what the gay community considers a “twink.” Not a hair on him.

8. Jigglypuff


I’m not too hip as to the sex lives of Pokemon characters, but I must say that if one was to be gay, it would be Jigglypuff. Aside from a name that to me just screams “bear,” this guy puts his enemies to sleep by singing to them. That’s a hell of weapon there, Jigglypuff. Also, Jigglypuff is pink and has a very gay little haircut. Let’s not overthink this.

“Gotta catch ‘em all!”

7. Barney


Well, he’s big, purple and ridiculously fun. He has a very gay walk about him and claps way more than me and my straight friends. He’s also 25 million years old and looks FANTASTIC. He’s also got a bit of a lisp. He also appears in a video with countless other children’s TV characters called “We Are Family” which encrouages diversity and tolerance. That sounds like some typical liberal bullshit.

Barney=Liberal. Liberal=Gay. Barney=Gay.

That’s the transitive property. I just mathematically proved that Barney is gay.

You might remember the 1980s action cartoon “ThunderCats” for its questionable animation, weirdly self-referential villains, and the hilarious antics of Snarf. Well it appears that there’s a new “ThunderCats” coming out, thanks to the stoner-friendly executives down at Cartoon Network HQ. It has a new 2011-friendly anime style too, so you can feel extra-embarrassed about watching it. Unless you’re high, in which case you’re not reading this anyway because you’re watching the video 5 or 6 times. You’re welcome! (via The AV Club)

‘ThunderCats’ Claws Its Way Back to Television http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/thundercats-claws-its-way-back-to-television/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/thundercats-claws-its-way-back-to-television/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 I remember why this was so popular!Twenty years after its cancellation, "ThunderCats" is poised to return to the small screen. A re-imaged "anime-inspired" version of the classic 80's cartoon will begin airing on Cartoon Network in 2011. The Cats join a growing list of retro characters headed to the CN lineup, including Batman, Scooby-Doo and The Looney Tunes. While CN is hopeful that the entire cast will return, the beloved character of Snarf may end up as the lone holdout. The annoying, overweight feline is currently in negotiations to join Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg on "The View," which would all but rule out his participation in the relaunch. (Variety) Watch two minutes of Snarf repeatedly saying "Snarf" after the Snarf.
