Artie's Multi-Fandom sorta art blog
I'm Artie. I'm an amateur cartoonist and professional know-it-all. I'm mostly here to post silly art and reblog stuff I like. I also sometimes make gifs, write stories, and put together videos. I also write superlong walls of text overanalyzing my favorite things.

This blog is, like, 90% Steven Universe at the moment.

I like a whole lot of things, including but not limited to: Silent Hill, Steven Universe, Adventure Time, The Walking Dead (TV show and Telltale Game),Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Fallout, Elementary, etc. So many things.

Feel free to message me if you have questions, comments, want to talk theories and headcanons and whatnot, would like something tagged, etc. My inbox is always open and I'm always happy to hear from you guys!

Special thanks to the-andorian-mining-consortium for helping me with this blog's theme!

So I noticed this way back when I was marathon reading/watching the Batman Animated canon but I was recently thinking about Jewish fictional characters and remembered it again so I figured I’d post it here.

There was a Batman Adventures comic Holiday special published in 1995 which was later adapted into an episode of the animated series in 1997, with a few changes. One of the most odd to me was that in one segment of the comic there are two instances of dialogue that directly mention that Harley Quinn is Jewish but the animated adaptation removes or changes these lines. The first one was a bit hard to demonstrate because its hard to screencap the exclusion of something…

This seems a bit odd to me. I know that Christmas is highly secularized but it just seems weird that Christmas can be mentioned but not Hanukkah. Or is it because the character is a villain and they didn’t want to risk someone thinking they were implying that it was villainous to be Jewish? Although it was fine for the comic but then TV is a very different, more heavily censored medium. I don’t know, it just jumped out as strange to me the first time I watched the episode after reading the comic.

    Given what they allowed in Batman TAS, I doubt it was “fear of making Jewish look villainous”. Notice how they also...
