Create New Mamma mia!! How are we-a gonna explain this one to the kiddies?!? A very serious Aesop is undermined because it's presented by a work that just cannot handle it well.
This is especially common in children's shows. There are many, many cases where a well-meaning show for children tries to explain a newsworthy issue. Sadly, the characters just usually end up way out of their comfort zone and the message often goes way over the poor kids' heads, often because it's so different from the normal tone of the show.
Note that this isn't always the fault of the writers. Any attempt to tackle serious subject matter honestly is problematic when the Moral Guardians are watching. This is often because many attempts to deal with such serious subject matter will usually have said Guardians responding with outrage at its mere inclusion!
Yes, even if you are explicitly attempting to discourage it. And so you often end up with children being warned about something dangerous — but exactly why that something is dangerous is often never explained which is why this trope can be a rich well of Paranoia Fuel.
It's hard to tell kids "don't play with power tools because you might get killed" when you can't say die so expect to hear something like "very, very badly hurt". Likewise, gun safety is an improbable issue to address when everyone packs a laser gun or something.
Most infamously, drug abuse isn't easy to deal with when you can't quantify why you shouldn't use drugs, or when you can't even acknowledge that drugs exist. Not to be confused with a Broken Aesopthough the two can overlap.
A Clueless Aesop is when some fundamental out-of-universe feature of the work or its authorship such as being written for children leads to them being unable to address an aesop appropriately, while a Broken Aesop is when an aesop is undermined by in-universe events e. Now, let's go back to fighting monsters!
Don't confuse this with a Family-Unfriendly Aesop either, because while again there can be some crossover, Clueless Aesops are acceptable lessons — at least, they start out that way. It's just that the lesson is handled in such a compressed time, in a manner that is so laughable or even offensiveor is presented in such an out-there or age-inappropriate show that it ultimately ends up warped.
The typical reaction is Don't Shoot the Message. Also do not confuse with any Aesop delivered by Cher Horowitz. This is about works of fiction that fail to get their intended message across.
Please don't use this page to complain about Aesops you don't like. In truth, they were really unsubtle advertisements for the company's products. One of the most infamous such lesson plans doubles as a Broken Aesop: Homestar Runner satirized this with typical aplomb in Commandos In the Classroom.
This was also parodied by The Simpsons with a math class sponsored by Pepsi. Another example was the D.
Unfortunately, because they set their slogan not to start at the eraser end but at the lead end of the pencil, as it was sharpened the slogan devolved on the pencil from the original message, down to "Cool To Do Drugs"to simply "Do Drugs", to just "DRUGS", as if the pencil was becoming increasingly desperate to get you to try some drugs.
A similar incident happened on a smaller scale for some rubber wristbands for red ribbon week. The slogan on the wristbands: Observant students quickly noticed the message in all caps. Despite the mistakes the exact same design is still in production.
Another problem is their excessive focus on resisting peer pressure, which can easily come off as "everyone is doing drugs but you.
Only trouble is anyone who has seen the movie knows Rick is actually angry at Ilsa for resisting the Nazis! So WB is comparing themselves to While not as uncomfortable in terms of subtext, the one where The Wizard of Oz yells at Dorothy and company for, er, pirating media is pretty terrible too.
There's a Canadian PSA about "social nibbling" as an allegory to social smoking. It shows a man in various social situations, taking food off of other people's plates, nibbling it, and giving back, while he denies that he's hungry.
It supposed to be about how you are in denial if you say you only smoke socially, but without being told the Aesop at the end, it could just as easily be about how you should buy your own packs instead of bumming them, as one could do this and still insist they only smoke socially.
There's one about "social farting" that's at least as confusing.
Here's an example that doubles as a Broken Aesop: In the early 90s, Nickelodeon ran several PSAs about the need to turn off the television and go outside. Around that exact same time, they ran a network promo depicting a kid being left alone on a baseball field, because all of his friends are in the living room watching Nick.
A notorious PETA PSA showed a girl screaming at seeing her father beat her mother, an old woman scream as a pair of muggers attack her, a boy screaming as bullies mob himWhen the Pilgrims arrived in Zanesville they stopped upon an open lot on the southwest corner of Locust alley and Fifth street, ground now occupied by the residence of Mrs.

In stories it both provides an echo of our experiences and plays directly to our desires and fantasies. In other tales they may be objects of fantasy who play out our secret.

Catholics try, rather unconvincingly, to show how conferring sainthood is different in principle to the pagan apotheosis (the process that made Claudius, for instance, into a God), but the distinction doesn't quite wash.
