i wrote to nick.com, too. i not only found that animation disturbing, there were several others that were in poor taste and irresponsible as well - one called "bully the bully" where the player got to punch a bully in the stomach, trip him, pull his ear, etc., and "gabe the gelfite fish" - a fish that made "stereotypical" jewish comments. considering this site is intended for children, i seriously question the judgement and morality of the folks at nickelodeon.

back to the art vandalism - this animation really serves to widen the gap between "fine" art and "popular" art, doesn't it? what could be a more blatant attack of fine art than what the "field trip to the museum" represents? strikes like that certainly do not earn respect for popular art or art-entertainment.
