Wow just what I never ever wanted a blend of kiddy story time and porn.
Yeah, let's not sexualise characters from a kid's show. And I'm disappointed to see BoingBoing straight-up promoting pornography, given how fucking harmful it is to women.
I agree that it is not ideal to mix explicit sexual content and media intended for families. However an indictment of all pornography I think is too broad a claim.
There is a growing amount of sex-positive pornography now being produced. Porn is not fundamentally harmful so long as safe-sex and consent are intrinsic to the way it is produced and presented.
It is true that some, perhaps even a majority of porn, is produced and presented in a way which is harmful to women (and men). However I don't think that situation is going to be improved by a by a blanket rejection of pornography. Promoting safe, consensual practices in the way pornography is made is going to yield a better outcome.
Apparently adults having sexiness in the theme of a show many adults watch, from the perspective of being an adult is kiddie porn? And all sexiness is "harmful to woman," for a given value of defining "harmful", and possibly "women"? Also, Boingboing is going to hell because in the old days there was no sex, just snow and an endless upwardly-spiraling treadmill of "Get off my lawn!", and we liked it.
I get why someone might react negatively to this, but it seems to be more of a taste issue than a "You have betrayed us and spit upon us!" kind of thing.
I think it is problematic to make sexual content spoofing programming that caters to children (even if adults also like it). If only because children may stumble upon it a lot more easily.
I wouldn't want to ban it or anything, but as a content producer one should be mindful of just who might come across what they make.
There's quite the genre of porn parodies out there. Everything from The Smurfs to Jeopardy with all points in between, including, Munsters, Brady Bunch (at least 5 of those) multiple Stars (both Trek and Wars), South Park, Hell's Kitchen...
More here. And this is just from one studio.

Poor comment, 0/10, would not come again.
This stands in the august tradition of Alice in Wonderland. Your personal preferences notwithstanding, some people just can't wait to see Princess Bubblegum doin' the nasty. Not saying who. Just... yknow, some people.
Does that mean you want to see my collection of My Little Pony slash fiction?
Nice job objectifying women in your cover photo there, BB.
Double standards much?
Conspiracy or fuck-up? When I typed "woodrocket sexy! fun! yes!" into Google, the first hit was "Dyson announces robot vacuum - boingboing" : -)
I didn't notice, I was too busy wondering how it was possible for an Ice King to be so hot.
Red Letter day, agree with Andy
