Because of increased public attention to children's exposure to media violence, we attempted to assess the amount of violence children are exposed to. We coded the amount of violence in two popular children's cartoons, Pokemon and Powerpuff Girls. More overall violence, physical violence, and verbal aggression were observed in Powerpuff Girls than in Pokemon. Implications will be discussed.
