    Why is acceptable for Disney to always german, germany in a negative way. All their european(mostly german) characters are mean, evil , stupid, arrogant.....
    Suit life of Zack and Cost: The evil german hotel inspector Ilsa, a lady in the bowling alley( lloks like some man-woman with "typical german hair, accent...)
    Phineas and Ferb: Doofenshmirtz ( german, because they mentioned in the show that he has a germany accent)
    Shake it up : THe Hessenpeffer twins: fake german accent always potrait negative
    They also once had a commercial with a dog that was barking (it was mentioned that it "must be some kind of german" or they use the mean german nanny....

    in general germans are always potrait al Lederhosen or Dirndl wearing, Bratwurst eating dumbA$#%#54 . I am really tired of this. Why cant we be shown in a more positive way.
    THe new thing with them is using indian people in shows . Most of those shows have indian kids in them, they are always shown nice, good kids. Why is Disney racist towards german people?

    Huh... I never noticed before, but you're right.
    I think that (and please... Don't be offended. I love German accents for many reasons, and this is only one of them) it's because German accents are so easy to make sound sinister.

    Well, I would just laugh and say "Yes, yes I am." and freak the little kiddies out... but that's just me. [​IMG] sorry about all the annoyance, though!

    I still have my accent, prob. never get rid of it, after all it has been ten years that i live in the US. But atleast its not as bad as Wolfgang Pucks accent. And yes, i do own a Dirndl, but i need to loose about twenty pounds to fit in it.

    It's pretty common for foreigners to be portrayed in a negative light in many movies/shows by many different companies. If movies serve me correctly, Russians are definitely, definitely evil. X)

    Its not just disney. Any film industry. Mainly because of post WW2 propaganda. Also they portray russians like that as well.
