Have you seen the new FX cartoon “sitcom”, “LITTLE DEMON?”
*SIGH* I used to love watching Danny in his movies. The Devito’s are working together on this ‘project’ and that puts a sour taste in my mouth to think about watching him again.
Little Demon explores what happens when Satan’s daughter, Chrissy (Lucy Devito) – the antichrist – hits puberty. Her mother, Laura (Aubrey Plaza), just wants the pair to live everyday life in Delaware. But Satan (Danny Devito) wants his daughter’s soul.
I couldn’t get to the remote fast enough to shield my 11-year-old from the preview, and I wonder how many other children were exposed to it—and how many millions more will tune in to the new series, owned and marketed by DISNEY.Congressman Mike Johnson of Louisiana
The trailer includes dark images of Hell, demons, and satanic imagery, and an explanation that the main character is… the Antichrist(!).
Disney provides this surreal description: “Thirteen years after being impregnated by Satan, a reluctant mother, Laura, and her Antichrist daughter, Chrissy, attempt to live an ordinary life in Delaware, but are constantly thwarted by monstrous forces, including Satan, who yearns for custody of his daughter’s soul.”
Jess (@jessicalieurance) on TikTok started a discussion amongst fellow Christians about the show:
“During an interview, no joke, they (Aubrey Plaza) said they are enjoying normalizing paganism,” Jess said, referencing a San Diego Comic-Con appearance by Aubrey Plaza. “Even if you’re not a Christian, I hope you can tell how wrong this is on so many levels.”
Jess was troubled by this. “If we’re going to normalize this, can we normalize the fact that demons are real and Christians have the power and authority to cast them out? This isn’t some cutesy little show where they’re just like, ‘Ooh, magic!’ Like, this is pretty blatant,” she said.
Another online review explains that Chrissy discovers she’s the Antichrist “in grisly fashion, quickly reducing a gaggle of school bullies into piles of red goo in what turns out to be the first of many spectacularly gory sequences. Chrissy doesn’t seem overly concerned by the whole triple-murder thing, shrugging it off with an easy-breezy attitude that sets the tone for the rest of ‘Little Demon.’”
“Most of the show’s best moments come when it leans into its hellish premise and plumbs the depths of its own depravity. It’s likely you’ve never seen a man punch a hole in his own face before or heard the words, ‘Let’s go boil some babies while their heads are still soft’ in quite that order and, after two decades of South Park, Family Guy, and other cartoon shock merchants, an animated series finding new ways to disgust is a genuine achievement.”
WHAT IN THE WORLD?!? I could write volumes this morning, and unpack pages of Bible verses here, but instead I’m just going to state the obvious: Please be careful. Our job as parents is to guard the hearts and minds of our kids. This culture has become alarmingly dark and desensitized and this is not a game. Disney and FX have decided to embrace and market what is clearly evil. STAY FAR FROM IT.
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.1 Peter 5:8
Note: Little Demon, although animated, has received a TV-MA rating and is intended for adult audiences.
