There’s a Tumblr called Ruined Childhood and it lives up to its name. It takes a look back at our favorite movies and TV shows from days past, showing us the trifling things that were stuck in there. Things our little innocent minds didn’t comprehend, but thought were funny for other cute reasons.
One of my favorite shows growing up was Tom & Jerry. LOVED that cartoon and the endless cat and mouse fighting. Tom’s whole point in life was to eat Jerry. Yes, it was violent and racist (remember the mammy with the slouchy socks?) but we watched it and it brought us good cheer. What can I say? We didn’t know better.
Anywho, the Ruined Childhood did exactly that when the following two gifs were posted on the site:
Jerry licked some white stuff off long brown thing with a hole in the middle. And then the brown thing exploded and white oozy stuff came out, covering Jerry up.
*cries tears for my lost youth*
If you need me, I’ll be over here rocking BAGGINFOAF because I can’t unsee this. Those damb cartoonists had NO chill whatsoever. Why must they do this to me?!?
The moral of this story is:
childhood is a sham. Childhood is a bunch of adult inside jokes. I need to stay off Ruined Childhood.
So were you traumatized by this too or was it just me?
