I already listed five, and the above posters repeated them.Examples? In the shorts I've seen, nothing bad ever happens to Bugs.
I guess the thing is that it happened in early cartoons because most protagonists were anti-heroes, mischief makers who while often firing second, often had a sadistic streak and were paired against very pitiful villains. As some WB staff noted, there was always a very fine line between these characters looking like defensive heroes or glorified bullies who waited for any petty reason to torment some schmuck. Having it backfire odd times, usually when they were intentionally portrayed as crossing the line, was a way of keeping a leech on them and showing they were only the 'heroes' so long as they played by the rules of karma.I wonder why protagonists in non superhero shows don't get some sort of karma in shows made now. I still partially blame soccor moms but that's just a guess. even another member on this forum interprets my desire for shows to teach kids that actions have consequences as me being a hate monger who has a torture fetish.
I've watched Disney Channel stuff and I don't recall the characters getting punished a lot, especially not the Disney Junior stuff witch is my main problem because kids will be watching.Turn on Disney Channel then. Literally every episode of everything ends with the protagonist learning a lesson (and often getting punished).
