Afterwatching the three programs, the Tom and Jerry cartoon seems to havechanged my opinion on the entertainment being fed to this generation.I had never taken Tom and Jerry cartoon as a violent one until Istarted doing this assignment. But come to think of it, is there anyepisode of Tom and Jerry that there are not trying to kill each otherreally? Absolutely I have discovered none. I have discovered thoughTom and Jerry characters do not speak their actions are filled withviolence only that the characters do not die.

Onanalysis of Scandal, though it became as a series with littleviolence, its current episode are filled with assassinations,manipulation and threats. For instance, The Command, Olivia’sfather ran an organization of assassin, who even killed thepresident’s son to enable the president to win an election throughsympathy. The entire theme of scandal is based on threats andmanipulation in addition to real violence.

HowI met your mother is a cool situational comedy, that most of itscomedy is based on ability to amuse others intelligently with words.Their plays majorly resolve around social places and live stories ofthe participants. Some though minimal instances of violence jokes arefeatured.

Violencecan be featured in Cartoon than even in adult comedies. Situationcomedies are made to make us laugh based on humor, and thus, this isthe tools used to market them. Dramas have tried to create a plot ofa normal world situation and theories that are believed to exist,showing violence though in an elevated form.
