Hey, is that lizard smoking?!

Paramount's new animated feature, Rango, has a lot of people up in arms. It seems some of the characters in the PG-rated movie are shown smoking cigarettes and cigars. In fact, according to Yahoo, there are more than 60 instances of smoking throughout the film.

A Paramount spokesperson says that the movie does not glamorize smoking in any way: "The images of smoking in the film, which primarily involves the animals, are portrayed by supporting characters and are not intended to be celebrated or emulated." The main character, Rango -- voiced by Johnny Depp -- is never shown smoking.

But that might not be enough to appease parents and anti-smoking groups like Breathe California.

So I have to ask ... Would you take your child to see a movie with smoking in it? Did you watch a lot of movies with smoking as a kid? Did it affect how you look at smoking?

Join us tomorrow morning after 8am on Froggy101's Wake Up Call and tell us weather your thoughts on smoking in the movies!!! See ya then!
