Abstract

Nowadays, the values that societies have are tried to be transferred to children in various ways. Motion picture films are seen as an important mass media to transfer the values to children. Animated films which children prefer to watch in movie theaters have importance in this sense because children tend to take the characters whom they watch, like, and take interest in as role models. This study aims to determine which values and how often are included in animated films. For this purpose, ten Turkish-made and twenty foreign-made animated films that were watched the most between the years 2015-2020 were examined and compared in terms of the values they contain. The method of the study is qualitative, the pattern is a case study. Descriptive analysis was used while analyzing the data. As a result, it is detected that Turkish animated films contain more value and mention these values more often compared to foreign-made animated films. In this context, it is recommended that the animated films that will be produced after that should be designed to involve the values more and that different studies examining the animated films within the scope of values education should be done in order to transfer the values to the next generations in a healthier way.
