Chinese artist asks cartoon maker to bare all about panda conspiracy
Friday, July 18, 2008

A CHINESE ARTIST is suing Dreamworks in a Beijing court, demanding an apology from the Hollywood studio for the cartoon film Kung Fu Panda 's depiction of China's national symbol.
Zhao Bandi is best known for using panda images in his art, including racy black-and-white clothes designs. The film, a tale about an overweight panda-cum-noodle-chef called Po who aspires to be a kung fu master, has broken box office records in China since it was first screened on June 20th.
The Chinese are hugely proud of kung fu and they also love their national symbol, the giant panda.

..."Designing the panda with green eyes is a conspiracy. A panda with green eyes has the feeling of evil . . . we would never use green eyes to describe a kind-hearted figure. So I ask them to open their creative meeting records of this film and explain why the green eyes?"

... And so the demands of the politically correct strike again. :DP: It's a freaking cartoon, people!!!!
