When Cartoon Characters Go Bad

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

Are we imagining it or have cartoon characters been getting in touch with their wild side?

It seems that moms can't be too careful when encountering adults wearing costumes, especially when it's not Halloween. Case in point: Last week, Japanese police arrested a 20-year-old man who attacked and robbed two people while wearing a Winnie the Pooh costume. Masayuki Ishikawa--sporting the beloved bear suit--was with two friends who were dressed as a mouse and a panther. Of course passers-by stared, (because--as we all know--there are no mice or panthers at Pooh Corner) allegedly provoking the furry trio.

"It's uncommon to see people dressed up like this, so the victims were watching them. Then the perpetrator came up and said 'What are you staring at?'" a police spokesman said. Ishikawa and his friends beat up the two victims and stole $160 (to score some honey?) from them. What was up with the silly get-ups? A spokesman said they had run out of clean clothes.

Yeah, but their weird animal costumes must've just come back from the dry cleaners.

Here are more cartoon characters on the edge:

Protesters--many dressed in Disney character costumes-- were lead away in handcuffs Friday because of a contract dispute involving the 2,300 workers of three Disney-owned hotels. Families had to cross the picket line to get inside the park. How do you explain to your kid why Snow White is being driven away in a cop car?

In July, a drunk spectator at an Australian sporting event ran onto the field in a Scooby Doo costume. The prankster, Nicholas Anthony Allen, fled the scene in a car and tossed the costume out the window. The Scooby Doo suit was traced back to its original costume shop. He was fined $500 and was denied Scooby Snacks for one week.

Spencer Taylor, a Batman obsessed 20-year-old from Michigan, was arrested for attempting to steal posters from a theater playing The Dark Knight flick. The joke was on him because he ended up spending 11 hours in jail and was fined $7,000. That'll wipe that smile off of his face.
emo.jpg Elmo: Tickle me busted 
Two costumed impersonators--typically seen hanging out in front of the famous Grauman's Chinese Theatre taking pictures with tourists--were arrested in 2005 for harassing passersby for money. Elmo and Mr. Incredible were taken away at gunpoint and fined $100. Elmo was overheard saying "That gun tickles!"
subway.jpg Subway sandwich assaulted
Not technically a cartoon character costume but certainly an adorable, deliciously-tempting outfit, a Subway sandwich wearer/14-year-old was robbed of his tasty clothes as he stood outside a Subway shop passing out flyers. No word on if the teens who perpetrated the crime were planning to wear the costume or eat it.

The one aspect i wished to place into this post is that cartoons have a lot of vital roles each day or night. Aside from the comical representation of everyday life or the heroic behavior an intriguing technique that a majority enterprises cannot understand is the usage of cartoons to their brand image. Cartoons or Mascots if you choose to tell them intensify the focus of the logo and supply a great recognition of the brand. For me individually the perfect sample to this is the michelin car tire man. I easily recount much more this mascot instead of the business logo. In any case my point is that cartoons can be used in various ways with a enjoyable and functional method.
