Disney's War Against the Counterculture
Why a decades-old copyright case matters now more than ever. Draw a mouse, go to jail. That, it seemed, was the ultimate conclusion of a case that wended its way throughout the 1970s from the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California to the Supreme Court and back. In an age of easy and ubiquitous copying, that case matters more now than ever.

Can it be true that Popeye smokes pot in his corncob pipe? Sure, why not? If the forces of darkness can use a square sponge to inject homosexuality into our young 'uns, all things are possible. Read this and forward it, with appropriate expressions of outrage, to Dr. Dobson and the Department of Education.

Perhaps we'll never know.
Isn't it bad enough that lunatics like Reverend Wildmon has Mighty Mouse removed from the airways because Mighty Mouse sniffed flowers to gain strength? (Wildmon's reasoning was that there was no difference between sniffing flowers and sniffing cocaine, and thus was Mighty Mouse inducing children to take drugs.

Mighty Mouse sniffing flowers gets his powers? Cocaine, man..

An Interview with Popeye

Let's talk about the spinach… did it really make you strong?

Of course! It's loaded with iron.

I read on Wikipedia that "the reference to spinach comes from the publication of a study which, because of a misprint, attributed to spinach ten times its actual iron content." And your popularity "helped boost sales of the vegetable and the spinach-growing community of Crystal City, Texas."

Ark ark ark! I'm just foolin' ya Chris. Yes, it's true. The iron-spinach misprint was actually a marvelous marketing ploy. How else could we get kids to eat the stuff?

I have to admit, you did make it look good.

Exactly! And that was the whole point. Sales on canned spinach, well, everything in dem days was canned, skyrocketed. And everyone in show business knows that when your advertisers are happy, your producers are happy, and you're happy. There was a lot of green flowin', if ya knows what I mean! (winks)

I'm kind of embarrassed to ask you about this… but the Wikipedia article also said this: "It has also been claimed that the "spinach" Popeye used was a reference to marijuana. Spinach was a slang term for marijuana at the time of Popeye's creation, and it was believed by some during that time period that marijuana could give users superhuman strength."

Well, if it's on the Internet, it must be true! Ark ark ark!

The Comics Code
In 1954, after the publication of the book 'Seduction of the Innocent' by Dr. Fredric Wertham (parodied left as Dr. Wirtham), comic publishers got together and formulated the Comics Code, a set of rules to which comics were to adhere from that moment on. Here is the complete text of the Comics Code, illuminated with a few examples from comics from the pre-code era.

Pope calls for more killing.

Ancient Temple Hashish Incense! Did Jesus Inhale?

The day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus by the Supreme Being as his father, in the womb of a virgin, will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter.
-- Thomas Jefferson, 1823
