  2. 2. 1 Abstract Factors that sculpture children’s way of thinking are found mostly in the environment where they grow up. These include daily events, memorable experiences and peak feelings. Cartoons are one of the daily habits for our children; studies have proven that an average child with a facility of a TV and a satellite connection at his home watches approximately 18,000 hours of
  3. 3. 2 television. Children have become much more interested in cartoons over many years. Typically, children begin watching cartoons on television at an early age of one year, and by the age of two or three children become enthusiastic viewers. Q. What is Cartoon? A cartoon word is derived fromthe Italian word “Cartone” and Dutch word “Karton”, meaning strong, heavy paper or pasteboard. It is a film using animation techniques to photograph a sequence of drawings rather than real people or objects. Everything has two types of effects i.e. Positive and negative. There are negative as well as positiveeffects of watching cartoons on children. The negative effects may include Violence, health problems, eating disorder, and promotion of fantasy world. Similarly, positive effects of cartoons i.e. they help in education, provide fun and entertainment, and enhance imagination and creativity.
  4. 4. 3 Let’s discuss the different effects of cartoons on Children behaviour and their psychology. Here are some examples of cartoons.

  11. 11. 10
  12. 12. 11 Cartoons are the most frequent and easily accessible source of entertainment which we provide to our children. Time which was previously spentby children in outdoor activities is now replaced, as now they can be found glued to the TV sets for long hours, peering at all sorts of cartoons. With the vastness of media and extension of channels, it has become easier for children to watch their favorite cartoons on a single click and at the same time it has become more convenient for parents to provide children with all-time favorite activity of theirs. Promote English Culture The newest generation of the world is inevitably exposed to the digital media as they are born and being raised in an environment that still remains overwhelmed and obviously dominated by the technological explosions over the last two decades. The lives of our young revolves around the box. The big question is we really aware of the impact of letting cartoons rule our children's conscious minds? Cartoons are without doubt the most entertaining aspect of childhood. I remember waiting for the glimpse of cartoon that would come on TV at 4pm for few minutes only. I may be biased in my opinion as I have grown up watching cartoons like Pink Panther, Woody Wood Pecker, Top Cat and Sesame Street; that were less violent and more entertaining. On the brighter side, there are more educationally oriented cartoon programs like Dora the
  13. 13. 12 Explorer with the potential of contributing to bringing up a non-discriminating generation of children who upon coming in contact with someone who is different from themselves, do not differentiate from them but actually think of what those differences can positively teach them. On the downside, it is surprising to know that now it is actually the mildest of the cartoons that can harm children's growth process. It has been observed that students enjoy learning almost any subject if presented through the use of cartoons. It enhances creativity, and imagination. There are some cartoons that provide valuable and informative knowledge. According to a report titled “The Effects of Cartoon Characters as Motivators of Preschool Disadvantaged Children”, cartoon characters stimulate interpersonal behaviour, learning and social growth. Children associate with cartoon characters more readily than adults in many cases and tend to retain the lessons imparted more readily. If a cartoon character conveys educational or moral lessons, then it can help speed up the learning process in children. Many cartoons depict senses of violence or danger. Like, Tom and Jerry are very famous fictional character. In this cartoon both of them fight with different tools, which seems funny. But it is dangerous for a child because at this age children learn those activities from cartoons and want to use them in real life.
  14. 14. 13 . Cartoons are mostly based on fantasized stories aimed at creating an imaginative world in the viewer’s mind. The basic purpose that cartoons serve is to provide entertainment and education on certain topics of life. The objective of this research is to analyze the negative effect of cartoons on the conduct of children and find effective ways to enhance the positive productivity of such shows. This will be done through close examination of children who watch TV, by also keeping factors into considered. Cartoon producers need to limit the fantasies they depict in cartoons and need to show real world characters instead. Cartoons need to depict the cultural values of their societies. EFFECT OF CARTOONS ON CHILDREN’S BEHAVIOR Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends limited television for children and discourages it altogether for children under age 2. Cartoons and comics form an integral part of our younger life. we can't avoid digital media, hence we cannot emphasize enough the significance of learning how to use it to positively engage our children and help them grow into moderate, intellectual individuals rather than to fall victim to catastrophes of unlimited and unsupervised cartoon viewing. We need to learn how to maximize the benefits and deal with the negative effects by limiting time, providing supervision and teaching responsible as well as moderate media use. EFFECT ON CHILDREN’S BEHAVIOUR It is evident that cartoons have a great effect on the development of a child’s behavior and mentality. Cartoons serve as a good medium for the education of a child but the bad effects outweigh its good
  15. 15. 14 ones. Following are the effects which are perceived to occur on children who watch cartoons: Imitation of Cartoons by Children Children who watch a lot of cartoon on TV tend to show that behavior in their daily lives. This problem is very serious as the child imitates the action he sees in cartoons, which could harm others as well as himself. The reason is that mostly the imitation is done of violent scenes in cartoons in which violence is done for justice. A research conducted by The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP) shows that children who watch realistic and frequently repeated violent shows are more likely to repeat that behavior in their own lives. Children are ignorant of the consequences of redoing the acts they see on the television. The following newspaper clippings show the death of children due to the imitation of cartoon. Children who spend inordinate amounts of time in front of the television don’t always get as much exercise as they should and thus are more likely to be overweight. Furthermore, reports from “Bowling Greenstate University” cite a detrimental effect on the brains of children who watch too many cartoons, including children developing attention deficit disorder. Results:
  16. 16. 15 After taking views and gathering data, We conclude that Cartoon TV Series has great influence over children. Here are some results:
  17. 17. 16
  18. 18. 17
  19. 19. 18 Conclusion: Cartoons are a good source of education and knowledge which help children learn the values of this world. But these days’ cartoons tend to show a lot of violence and obscenity. That is the main reason why children should be monitored while they are watching their favorite cartoon shows. Organizations like British Board of Film Class (BBFC) and Motion Picture. Parents should use these ratings in order to determine the type of content that their children are watching. In light of the above discussion it is eminent that children should be regulated by their parents for what they watch. The reason being that the children themselves are at the learning phase of their lives and much cannot be expected from them. It is the sole responsibility of the parents to regulate the kind of cartoon programs their children watches, as it has great effects on his whole life. The cartoons should be made with a sense of responsibility. They should have a definite & constructive purpose behind them. Cartoons should
  20. 20. 19 portray the culture and the norms of the society in which they are being displayed. In Pakistan especially, cartoons should be made with respect to our own culture as it will better construct the minds of our future generation. THE END
