A study of Violence in G-rated Animated Feature Films!

Maybe I’m a total geek but I found this very exciting, even though it’s over 10 years old. First I found a reference to the study in this book:

The Elephant in the Living Room: Make Television Work for Your Kids, by Dimitri A. Christakis and Frederick J. Zimmerman (New York: Rodale, 2006),

and then I found the actual study online:

Yokota, F. & Thompson, K. M. “Violence in G-rated Animated Films” in the Journal of the American Medical Association 283 (May 24-31, 2000): 2716-2720.           (see the full study here)

It covers animated films of feature length (at least 60 min.) that were rated G, released theatrically in the U.S. and which were “available for review on videocassette” by September of 1999, including 74 titles.
