Animation is the process of creating the continuous motion and shape change illusion by means of rapid display of a sequence of static images that minimally differ from each other. Cartoon animation has great impact on children’s mind, because all children love to see cartoon. Cartoon movies which are necessary sources of fun for children also have educational aspects. Innocent display of cartoons which give many subtle messages include various negativities. One of these negativities is related with the characters’ gender. Characters in cartoon movies include females, males, animals and inanimate objects. While male and female characters’ roles are shaped according to existing stereotypical role models in society, animal and inanimate characters have anthropomorphic characteristics like walking on two feet or speaking. Such characters have their places in these movies with their human-like characteristics. Children's judgments of the reality status of television programmes are not based solely on comparing specific program content with their knowledge of the world. They also need to draw on their knowledge of the medium of television. Without the use of both kinds of knowledge, a documentary about an exotic country might seem as fantastic as a science-fiction adventure.
