If I were to describe the new wave of cartoons, namely Adventure Time, Steven Universe, Gravity falls and the like, in one word it’d be healthy.
I’m constantly wowed by how meticulously healthy and sensible the relationships and discourse are for the characters. Like I’m actually hopeful for what younger people learn and keep with them from watching these shows.
