Kid's humor? I'm not talking about kid's humor. Watch those cartoons
again. What SD Gundam kid would get references to hoarding during the war,
Frank Sinatra, hard-ons, murder mysteries, the Honeymooners, etc? None of
those cartoons were written for kids. They were *free*, get it? No bullshit
marketing schemes like now, no extra charge to see them. The adults making
them wrote them for *themselves*, not their children or anybody else. If
*they* laughed, they were satisfied.
