      that's the thing, it was seen as an holiday where people met a living skeletons and fought it and things like that.
      Now it's whole deal is about memories and family.

        M8 they had cartoons talking about this as early as the 80s and the 90s and 00s were full of them, Disney didn't popularize that shit at all. You sound like you're too young to actually remember the culture of the time.

              Nah, I remember stuff like an episode of The Wild Thornberries and that one movie, The Halloween Tree, depicting Dia de Los Muertos as a family holiday about memories and venerating dead family.

              Coco didn’t really change anything. It was probably just your personal introduction to the idea, not everyone else’s

              What constitutes Disney Popularizing it? Do you mean Coco? Because even when I was a kid in the early 00s the "Family and Memories" aspect of the holiday was always mentioned in the few instances where it would come up.

              maybe you're latinos but for the ones that aren't brown our only exposure of Dia de Muertos was just "they love skeletons in an halloween ripoff that doesn't have candies".
              We didn't know of candy skulls or any of the remembering ancestors thing.

                I'm an American born-and-raised with no hispanic background. No, there were a lot of things that were specifically meant to teach about this at the time. Maybe you, personally, were not exposed to them, don't speak for the life experiences of others.

                I'm not, I'm not even from a particularly Latino part of the country and all the major Latino hubs near me were Puerto Ricans and Carribean-types. My regular experience with Dia Del Los Muertos was tv shows and maybe some gay class assignments. Like fricking Venture Bros had a throw away line in the Mexico episode and even that mentioned it being about the souls of the honored dead despite having nothing to do with the overall plot. I think you just had limited personal exposure and assume that's how it was for everyone before you were introduced to something.

                How badly disapointed would my child self be if I try one today?

                The whole point is they're basically inedible because they're built for display not for eating. You're supposed to have fun making the thing not eating it. I think maybe just get some edible gingerbread and then if they want to eat some give it to them while building.

            Not Cinemaphile BUT it was Disney, Beverly Hills Chihuahua does actually explain the meaning behind the holiday during a festival scene and touches on other aspects of Mexican culture like having coyotes smuggling people across the border represented by actual coyotes kek.

        really? oh no 🙁 . I guess americans have a similar concept of "don't eat this delicious theoretically thing" with gingerbread houses, but those disappoint me too

        I’m so glad king cake didn’t disappoint me. In hindsight, it seems like something I should have been wary of, but it’s just as good as I was hoping so I lucked out. I’m just disappointed no one up north here respects the tradition so I can’t have a proper king cake party with them.

    To this day, and mostly 'cause cartoons and comics, we portray Vikings wearing horned helmets. Even Cartoon Saloon does this. In reality they rarely did that. If fact there's no actual concrete evidence of they doing it at all.

    My fav part about your picrel example is that episode does explore the family aspect of the dia de los muertos celebration. Of course in the sardonic fashion you'd expect from Billy & Mandy, but still, it does it.

      does it? The episode says the reason the holiday was created is because a conquistador stole a nose israeliteel and the natives dressed up as skeletons to retrieve it.
      In the episode Billy had a joke lost long brother El Uglio but wasn't related to the holiday and was a gag.

    Why is this so common, holy frick you're not the only person in the world and it's more likely than not that you've missed some part of popular culture somewhere along the line. That's fine. It's ok. When you start acting like this can only be the case of others having lived in a niche situation and not yourself though that's just silly.

    That's completly fake; way before Disney did their movies, and just going by Cinemaphile related stuff since we are here anyway, there were plenty of references, movies, and explanations. Your pic related is just a very bizarre show that was never serious, nor did it intend to be.

    Sort of related... Rabbits do not naturally eat carrots, they only eat the green leaves. They can in fact get diabetes from being fed too many carrots. The only reason people believe rabbits want carrots is because of Bugs Bunny, who was actually just referencing this popular(at the time) movie scene: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UyWMOt11ceU That scene is also why so many cartoons had the "toon pulls up his leg skin to reveal a woman's leg to get a car to stop" gag.

    It's probably one of the most influential rom-coms ever made and still highly watchable nearly a hundred years later. I'm surprised that they aren't making a shitty Netflix remake of it or something.

    About rabbits I can say that they're FINALLY replacing the cat nose with the actual soft triangle nose. Simon finally made me see a real cartoon rabbit nose.
    I know it's annoying when we accuse other cartoons of shit but Bugs Bunny and Bambi really made cartoonists think rabbits had these weird button noses.
    Elinor Wonders Why is still guilty of round nose but I can try to excuse it for the artstyle.

    I'm mexican, living in mexico and dia de los muertos is not that important at all. Only a few cities in the south care, to the point that the mexico city parade was invented by james bond for the movie spectre and was kept for tourism. Other countries like it because some of the imagery is unique, but cartoons and movies exaggerate it a lot. It's not a holiday anyone looks forward to, not even a bank holiday and those b***hes take the day of the virgin off.
