This book is addressed to a wide range of readers—to those concerned about their children's interaction with Saturday morning television, Nintendo video games, and cult heroes like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles; to those curious about how children acquire the ability to understand narrative and how this ability has been affected by mass media like television and video games; to those interested in American popular culture and corporate mergers in the multinational entertainment industry; and to those engaged with issues of gender and with the relationship between cognitive and psychoanalytic theory.

April oneil tmnt movie nude boobs exsanding who are less interested in theory may prefer initially to skip over most of the first chapter and begin with the section "A Preliminary Case Study: Where Did Big Bird Go? This volume started out as an essay for the television issue of Quarterly Review of Film and Video that Nick Browne was assembling in honor of the late Beverle Houston, who was my closest friend and colleague and longtime collaborator.

After consulting with Nick on possible topics, I decided to bring together two projects that I had been thinking about for some time: That essay then turned into a scholarly paper for an innovative panel on animal representation organized by Anne Friedberg for the Society of Cinema Studies—a context that led me to develop the sections on animal masquerade and to elaborate on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

It was Tania Modleski who first suggested that this project warranted a book. Ernest Callenbach, my wonderful editor at University of California Press and longtime friend and collaborator at Film Quarterlyshared the opinion and was largely responsible for making it happen.

I owe special thanks to all four of these colleagues for helping me develop the project from essay to book.

I also want to thank several other colleagues and friends who read parts of the manuscript and gave many helpful suggestions for its improvement: At the University of Southern California, I am grateful to the Institute for the Study of Women and Men for giving me a faculty summer research grant to do empirical studies in conjunction with this project, and to Sharon Bowman at the Anna Arnold Bing Day Care Center for allowing me to observe and interview some of her students.

I am deeply indebted to my wonderful research assistants Walter Morton and Michael Sinclair, who documented these empirical studies on video, and particularly to Walt Morton, who did editing and additional photography.

I would also like to thank CBS for providing me with demographics and tapes of some of their Saturday morning.

I also want to acknowledge my brilliant, muscular, and prolific friend John Rechy, who always acknowledges me in his books and who frequently accuses me of writing on texts that are "unworthy" of my powers of analysis. A long time ago there were no toys and everyone was bored. April oneil tmnt movie nude boobs exsanding they had TV, but they were bored again.

So they invented video games. According to my eight-year-old son, Victor, who is a reluctant moviegoer as well as our household Nintendo champion, the history of entertainment is driven by the pleasure principle—the alleviation of boredom and the pursuit of control or mastery.

Cinema which he omits entirely from his minihistory is clearly expendable. Apparently, postmodern kids like Victor need to be sold on the concept that movies still have an essential place in the entertainment system.

Both Saturday morning television and home video games perform this job of selling by refiguring cinema not as a medium that is obsolete, but as what Beverle Houston calls "a prior discourse" that can be parodied, recycled, and mastered. The term intertextuality was first introduced by Julia Kristeva, elaborating on Mikhail Bakhtin's concept of dialogism.
