So…Is This Trend Taking Hold In Children’s Media Also? YES! • It has been the target of many Studies.
Ashley Case Do We Care-A-Lot? Do We Care-A-Lot?
Side 1 • significantly higher amount of violence in animated films than in non-animated films • average of 7.86 violent incidents per hour
Side 2 • G-rated = contains nothing in theme, language, nudity, sex, violence or other matters that would offend parents whose younger children view the motion picture • tightening of standards in the last two years
Methodology… • Get a list • Compare it to the language used in 1st Care Bears movie and last Care Bears movie. BUT… • Lacking a list (from a reliable source) of unacceptable terms for children ages 7 and younger
NEW Methodology! • Compile words from both movies in to a list • Give them to mothers of children age 7 and younger. • Compile the results
Rating System • No problem: rating of 0 • Depends: rating of 1 • Not to be used: rating of 2 • Multiply rating by number of votes = points for each time word is found in script
Possible Outcomes • 1st Care Bears movie has better language • Newest Care Bears movie has better language • No significant division
Future Work • Include other Care Bear movies • Include other re-released children’s movies • Larger sample size • Etc.
