When “Terry and the Pirates” made the leap to (B/W) TV from the comic strips in the paper, I found that my imagination worked much less trying to involve myself “in the action” The live people left little room for the ‘reader’s’ creative mind to develope. (Same with the Lone Ranger !!)
A semi-related question for some of you ‘Old Guys’— When did the movie-cartoons stop using the WWII sterotypes as the villains? I recall , well into the 1950’s seeing Bugs and Daffy and some of the Disney characters fighting the Nazi’s and the buck-toothed “Asians” in the movies and on tv at home. This was years after the end of the war. Anyone recall when, and maybe why(at the time) the change was made.
When, I don’t know…why, political correctness is my best guess
