Abstract
This chapter introduces three popular family-oriented comics/cartoon series: Sazae-san, Chibi Maruko-chan, and Crayon Shin-chan. Each is from a different time period, and Lee shows how these series portray and reflect changing social and family life conditions in postwar Japan. Early-postwar food shortages, the changing place of women, and a traditional three-generations-under-one-roof family structure are among the topics/features of Sazae-san, whose setting roughly corresponds to life in the 1950s and 60s. With Chibi-Maruko-chan (1970s setting) and Crayon Shin-chan (1990s), the portrayals of family life become less idealistic and nostalgic, and more strained and child-centered, with knowing kids casting a satirical eye on the foibles and pretensions of adults.
