My latest cartoon addiction is the sci-fi series Rick & Morty. In the episode "Getting Schwifty", the townspeople misinterpret the giant alien heads as gods, and begin a cult that has an Ascension ceremony. As you can see, along with a thief and a movie talker, a Goth is considered as an unwantable. I guess the joke never gets old for TV writers.

"We hereby send these unwantables skyward that they might be inhaled by the many heads, later to be sneezed back to us as better babies."
