While I haven't seen this particular show, the religious right has been going after the animated sitcom genre ever since the Simpsons aired its first episode back in 1989.

So Disney created a cartoon show about Satan and the Antichrist.

This falls into the 'you can't make this stuff up' category.

The religious right saw this coming. Question is, what's next?

It's an adult animated sitcom on FXX. You're saying Disney made this? Let me look it up.

Okay so they're just the distributor.

Snopes says: Is “Little Demon” is an animated comedy series about Satan and the Antichrist and was created by a company that’s owned by Disney.

So it's Disney.

I suppose you could theorise the antichrist is coming in 40-50 years. Cos that cartoon (or worse) wouldve been played to everyone by then

If you think this show will drag you into the depths of Hell, then just don't watch it. My family and I did see it, and we thought it was funny. Another example of right wing cancel culture.

The right has always had it in for animated sitcoms. Here are more instances of outrage:

1. The Bart Simpson T-shirts that said "Underachiever, and proud of it" and "I'm Bart Simpson, who the hell are you?"

2. The incident where a 5-year-old accidentally burned down his trailer and killed his little sister, and his mom blamed Beavis and Butthead. The boy, now in his 30s, admitted his mom made the B&B part up. The family didn't have cable.

3. Accusing South Park of being "dangerous to the democracy", pushing the "gay agenda", and "impeding efforts to preach the Gospel".

4. Family Guy frequently being labeled "worst show of the week" by the Parents' Television Council (a right-wing watchdog group). PTC tried to get the FBI to investigate Seth MacFarlane for one episode they particularly hated.

5. Complaints about "Lucy, Daughter of the Devil", similar to the current one about Little Demons.

The above that I'm familiar with are pretty raunchy. The right is always going to pee on the left's love of raunchy stuff.

I think it's about time that the GOP says something about that show.

They should have bigger concerns than what’s on tv.

I have one of those original “I’m Bart Simpson…” t- shirts.” :D

I purposely watch shows that the right despises, and if those shows ever went off the air, I would probably start watching porn.

I also seek out partners who watch those shows, because asking if they watch those shows is tantamount to asking "do you want to come to my place and fornicate?"

When I was a kid I used to read Hot Stuff comics and watch classic cartoons that showed devils and hell. I played Earthworm Jim where one of the world's in the game is called "Heck". These people need to get over it.

And there are the geniuses who think *everything* is satanic and your kids are turning into Satan worshipers, claiming the Disney Logo has the numbers 666 in it. :roll:
