New TSA CartoonTakes Away “Stranger Danger” For Kids (Sort of…)

Looks like TSA is trying to re-vamp their image.  After years of terrifying old people and children, the Transportation Security Administration has come up with a way to help take away some of the (justifiable) fear of going through airport security.

The agency released a website called TSA Kids, which features a cartoon family of dogs approaching the airport security checkpoint.  The (understandably frightened) Pup says, “Oh–it looks kind of scary.” Dad Dog says, “TSA officers are here to keep us secure.  So don’t worry.  Just remember:  Stop, screen, go.”

Here’s a screenshot of the Pup being x-rayed:

I’m really, REALLY hoping when I’m in the airport in a few days I won’t see the same scary red glow coming out of my x-ray machine…

Of course, they didn’t show anyone in the Dog Family getting touched in scary, Stranger Danger kind of ways, or getting groped without being read Miranda Rights…

Anyhoo, here’s the cartoon.  Enjoy.
