The Parents Television Council has researched the current crop of cartoon programs and found they contain material inappropriate for young audiences.
Analysts with the PTC viewed 123 episodes of programs on the Disney Channel, Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, Nick at Nite, and Adult Swim.
They found close to 1,500 incidents of explicit sex, drugs and offensive language.
The group found that cartoons could also be having a negative impact on kids mentally, due to inappropriate content.
CBN News spoke with Dan Isett, the director of public policy for the Parents Television Council, about the issue on Newswatch, Aug. 18. Watch for more on the results of their latest study.
