Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper examines representations of race, gender, disability, and sexual identification seen on primetime animated sitcoms. The first part of the paper examines the history of primetime animated sitcoms on network television and an overview of the representations on those shows. The second part includes the results of a content analysis of two current primetime animated sitcoms, Family Guy and The Simpsons, and the representations they contain within individual episodes. Results from both sections point to an overwhelming focus on white male characters and their perspectives both in the past and now in animated sitcoms being broadcast during primetime hours on network television.
