Here is the reference for that answer askimam.org/public/question_detail/7024.html and honestly I don't know either. There have been a few questions where the reference they provide on AskImam have been incorrect, Allahu Alum.

Here is the Blasphemous Cartoon details.

World's first Muslim superheroes, the 99, are headed for British television screens
The world's first Muslim cartoon superheroes have taken the Arab world by storm, and now they are headed for British television screens

Quote:
Jabbar, is one of The 99, the world's first Muslim cartoon superheroes
11:00AM BST 20 Aug 2009

Named the 99, as each possesses one of Allah's 99 attributes, the characters include a burka-clad woman named Batina the Hidden and a Saudi Arabian Hulk-type man named Jabbar the Powerful.

They have proved a hit from Morocco to Indonesia and were recently named as one of the top 20 trends sweeping the world by Forbes magazine.

Now they are being brought to British television by Endemol, the production company behind Big Brother, with a mission to instill Islamic values in children across all faiths.

Until now, the superhero market has been dominated by the likes of Batman, Spiderman and Superman who have typically limited their crime-fighting abilities to America and the Western world.

They were created by Dr Naif al-Mutawa, a clinical psychologist from Kuwait, who felt Muslim children needed a new set of heroes to look up to, to counter jihadist role models.

“It hit me that the stories I was hearing were from men who grew up believing that their leader, Saddam, was a hero, a role model — only to one day be tortured by him,” he told The Times. “I decided the Arab world needed better role models.”

However, despite being called the 99, there will never be a full cast of 99 superheroes since it is forbidden to depict all Allah's attributes

Dr al-Mutawa hopes the cartoons will have a universal appeal.

He said: “It is based on attributes such as generosity and mercy. These are not things that Islam has a monopoly over.”

For Brothers in Karachi, I am not sure but you can probably get a free copy of the Fahme deen magazine at Masjid Ali (may Allah Ta'ala be pleased with him), DHA phase 6.
PS: I occasionally go there, that's why I am not sure...

All the fatwas regd cartoons still doesn't explain how music can be halal as music is such a big part of such cartoons even in so called Islamic cartoons there's music ...I'll simply mail mufti Menk and see if I get a reply.

I was just listening to a bayaan, of a Mufti (won't take his name, until clarified), who was telling that he let his child watch cartoons, but stopped him now because he was becoming mischievous.

He advised about children to see Saudi Arab cartoons.

Can someone please share a ruling for letting children watch cartoons.

Salamalaikum all!!

 

i think it's better to take one step at a time. I monitor what cartoons my daughter watches and for how long and so forth.

 Its  inevitable that they will watch it at school but I try to keep a balance. I also make it a point to tell her, this is haraam and they are naughty for singing or dancing, so now she already says, look abba naughty people. So I think you just need to find the right balance.

you can't hide things from anyone let alone children so its better to "control expose" to them so they don't got mad over it if they see it at school or family or friends houses.

just like those kids whose parents are extremely strict and don't give them even a little fizzy drink on a "treat" basis, so when they go to someone else's house they behave like deprived children and drink like mad!! Lol

I've got some Islamic cartoons but to be honest, they only go so far......

وعليكم السلام

Are you saying you believe that watching cartoons with singing and dancing (or being intentionally "exposed" to them) is okay for children as long as they recognize that they are "wrong" and "naughty"? If so, I disagree. Of course, outside of the home there is less control of what one is exposed to (although one could and should avoid such places other than for necessity). But in one's own home, I don't see any reason why one should allow one's children to watch shameful things when even they know its status.

Got reply from the Mufti Sahab, he told about (mafhoom) some Ulama allowing those cartoons that have quite deformed shapes, like long nose, weird eyes (terhi meri ankhay), however precaution demands it is abstained from.
