• Fox’s Golan the Insatiable: Sex with Dead Animals – Aimed at Kids

    by  • July 8, 2015 • Sex, Violence, Worst of the Week • 14 Comments

    Golan-the-InsatiableEvery Sunday night at 8:30 p.m. Central/Mountain, the Fox Broadcasting Network shoves its horrific cartoon Golan the Insatiable at an audience of hundreds of thousands of children. But the program is not suitable for children of any age.

    Golan’s main character is a little girl named Dylan. But if you think this cartoon contains Disney-like scenes of princesses and fairies, guess again.  Dylan’s best friend is a gigantic demon named Golan. Together, the two indulge in an orgy of graphic violence, explicit sexual dialogue, and foul language. A few examples:

    ———

    Dylan’s pet turtle dies. Golan suggests they simultaneously have sex with the dead animal’s corpse.

    Golan: “I’ll take the front hole, you take the back, and let’s try not to meet in the middle. If we do, though, don’t make it weird.” (June 28, 2015)

    ———

    At her friend’s birthday party, Dylan throws a bottle of acid at a magician. It splashes on his face and melts his flesh. The other children all clap and shout in glee. (June 28, 2015)

    Golan rips a man’s arm off. Blood gushes onto the pavement. Golan beats the man with his own severed arm. (June 28, 2015)

    A drilling machine bursts through the pavement and splits a man’s body in half.

    Golan: “Awesome!”  (June 28, 2015)

    ———

    Dylan wets her bed. She takes the sheets down to the washer, but her mother is masturbating by “riding” the washer, pressing her crotch against the vibrating machine. The mother sips wine with a lit candle next to her, as she screams in orgasm.

    Dylan: “Damn it. She’s still on that thing? My mom has got to start dating.” (June 14, 2015)

    ———

    Golan smashes a wall, causing it to collapse on Dylan’s friend Swingley. Dylan cries as she mourns his death. Golan suggests Dylan have sex with his corpse.

    Golan: “If you want to say goodbye in a biblical sense, you got about an hour – hour and a half, tops – before the flesh gets all gamey.” (June 14, 2015)

    ———

    Golan waits at an office. The clerk’s large bosom rests on top of her desk.

    Golan: “Let me just say, Grace, your chest has been very large throughout this entire process.”

    ———

    Golan buries his face in Grace’s bosom, then turns his head at the camera and winks at the audience. (June 7, 2015)

    ———

    Golan’s snow fort melts.

    Golan: “Ahh! What the hell? Your ugly flag is making my sweet-ass fort melt. There are too many of those little bastards!” (June 7, 2015)

    When confronted with this deluge of unbelievably graphic content, Golan’s defenders wail, “The show isn’t aimed at kids! It’s for adults! Adults should be able to watch anything they want!” Unfortunately, the truth is otherwise.

    The Federal Communications Commission mandates “time, place, and manner” be considered when certain kinds of content are shown. If Golan were on a premium cable channel at 2 a.m., that would be one thing. But it isn’t. Fox is deliberately airing it on the publicly-owned airwaves, in the early hours of prime time, when children are in the audience.

    Millions of adults DON’T watch Golan. The June 28th episode drew a paltry 800,000 viewers…out of a potential audience of over 100 million. One critic called this “what could be [Fox's] lowest-rated Sunday night ever.” However, a huge portion of Golan’s audience is children. The June 7th episode had only 1.2 million total viewers, but almost a third of those viewers were children! This should surprise no one. When has a cartoon aired at 8:30 p.m. NOT attracted children?

    Fox assigns Golan the Insatiable the content rating of TV-14, meaning it is appropriate for 14 year-olds. But the network knows full well that little children are attracted to cartoons – especially cartoons which feature little children as lead characters. And by luring impressionable children in to watching the cartoon, Fox is able to charge advertisers more, precisely because young children are more impressionable to commercials.

    Golan is produced by the same group which made Fox’s disgusting late-night cartoon Animation Domination High-Definition, or ADHD. At the time that show launched, Fox’s president stated he hoped the ultra-raunchy cartoon show would provide programming for prime time. After the PTC documented just how horrifically graphic ADHD was, Fox pulled the program …but continued investing in it. And now, just as Fox’s top executive predicted, here it is in prime time, its explicit content being pushed, not at a late-night audience of teens and adults, but at little children.

    Make no mistake: Fox’s programmers know EXACTLY what they are doing. They are deliberately airing a cartoon with R or even X-rated content at a time when they KNOW hundreds of thousands of children will be watching. They know they are shoving graphic sex and horrific levels of gore and profanity at children 10 or 7 or even 4 years old.

    And they don’t care.

      We can’t allow this – new generations will accept this programming as “normal.” This kind of “cartoon porn” harms everyone w ho sees it, even mature adults.
      Who are the sponsors of this horror?

      I guess it’s time to leave Fox for good. The “Fair and Balanced’ station is now the “Appeal to the basest desires of humanity and make it look like humor” station.

      This is too disgusting to even read! How can any tv station allow such? I had no idea it was there, and I believe most discerning people would protest if they were aware. Stop it Fox!

      Heinous, that’s the only word that comes to mind when watching such horrific garbage aimed at destroying the moral fabric of our country. It’s NWO indoctrination; it’s attempting to whittle away what parents are trying to do in raising their children and it’s hedonistic to sayt he least. This program actually adequately defines evil by having a devil in its midst.

      It’s not aimed at kids. Just because its on at a certain time does not mean it aimed at a certain audience. The content in the show is what determines who the show its targeting. I’ve watched the show and this is not aimed to kids in the slightest bit. Not sure what Timezone you are in but in Ohio this comes on at 9:30.

      What a bunch if angry moms. I mean seriously? It’s the parents fault for not even looking at the programs their kids watch in the first place. The world isn’t built just for children. Fyi, animation is an art that can be viewed by anyone. The whole “knowing children flock to cartoons” argument is invalid for a number of reasons. 90% of adult swim programs are animated. Fox’s most popular show is the Simpsons, a comedy adult show that is *gasp* animated. Why don’t you pull that off the air, too? In fact, get rid of the other successful, non-child demographic animated shows as well? Maybe then your panties will be in less of a knot about “children safety”.

        I completely agree with Am. Common sense media (which does a much better job of explaining to parents the content that is in the show) has even said that this show is intended for teens and adults not kids. Anyone who has watched this show even for just a few seconds should be able to tell that this is not aimed at kids.

        Also for everyone saying that this should not be allowed on TV. It has every right to be on television, you can’t just say a show should be canceled because you don’t like it or the content that is in the show.

      I was horrified by this article so I went back and watched several episodes. This show is actually really funny! I showed it to my kids immediately because I want them to be cool and have friends when they grow up.

      Who is behind this horrible garbage, and even more importantly, it must their desire to make terrible monsters out of children. When it happens, we all are the victims of the things they will be doing from what they’ve learned from watching these harmful & sadistic programs. Our society is doomed if this is allowed!

      Programs of this nature should not be broadcast. I am angry that a legitimate Net work would spew such filth into anyone’s home.

      Garbage in, garbage out. It’s a simple concept. Whether this is targeted to children or not, it’s a shame people with gifts and talents such as these would use them for this boorish, stupidity that degrades human sexuality. There are so many great things to read, watch and do that will help people mature in the fullness of feminine and masculine maturity; they entertain and can also inspire and elevate. Tragic that some don’t have a desire to mature and want to expose themselves to this drivel.

      When you include internet pirating there are probably more than 800,000 viewers. I know lots of people who never watch shows on TV they just pirate them. On the time slot maybe this show would get less controversy if it moved to 11:00 or 11:30. Adult Swim used to start at 11:00 and end at 5:00 (the hours children are asleep.)
