In what I can say might be the first time ever, a cartoon, Boss Baby: Family Business, has given equal representation time to non believers in a cartoon – and *spoiler* it’s around the holidays! Okay so maybe it’s not a true spoiler, but it’s not really revealed in the trailer for Boss Baby Family Business to my memory.
*Spoiler warning again but I’ll try not to spoil….* The scene I’m talking about involved a lot of kids telling about their holiday celebration and even pauses to show a kid dressed in black that says he’s agnostic.
Now there is a concern that this is kind of a harsh treatment of non believers because the kids is standing all alone and the scene loses all color and vibrancy, but at least there is visual representation in a cartoon now that some kids (and presumably their families) don’t celebrate any holiday traditions or have religious beliefs.
I just had to point out that this is a HUGE deal. Boss Baby Family Business has broken the non-believer barrier!
Big things have small beginnings…..
This was my favorite part; I had to pause for a moment to make sure I heard that right. Agnostics!
It was probably mine as well! It just catches you off guard.
