Rn i'm watching Amphibia and binging the early seasons of The Simpsons.

Old faves include classic Looney Tunes, Invader Zim, My Life as a Teenage Robot, and Wander over Yonder. I really recommend WoY, it's got GREAT animation, and is pretty underrated compared to the others.

My favorite cartoons are Hey Arnold, X Men Evolution, Justice League and Young Justice.
Never finished Young Justice, it was cancelled then it got uncancelled, dunno how it ended. Oh and Sym-bionic Titan which was also cancelled for some reason, and it was getting so good.. CN gotta love cancelling everything. I'd recommend Sym-bionic Titan if I didn't know it ends in a fucking cliffhanger, remembering it makes me want to cry.

Op pic rel, but I tried to watch Daria and I couldn't really get into it. I know the point of the show show is supposed to be very dry humor and the side characters are supposed to be dumb from Daria's perspective but they all felt a little wet cardboardish to me tbh. The only character I really liked was the crazy teacher kek. Maybe it was just because I tried watching early episodes, should I give it another shot?

Young justice is still going but it's best to pretend that it only had two seasons.

Forever angry the Reboot license is with a deranged moid who ruins it with unrelated garbage spinoffs and won't sell it to someone who'd actually use it. The animation's aged so badly but the story is still excellent, it would just need a remaster and could be aired today otherwise untouched and have an actual end and not a cliffhanger.

My taste is kinda all over the place, I’d say my favorite cartoons are South Park, Transformers, Morel Orel, Billy and Mandy, Smiling friends and Over the Garden wall.

No. 189444

Hm…idk, honestly. A lot of the characters end up being more complex, which is one of my favorite things about the series – Daria and Jane's friendship gets complicated in interesting ways, everyone in Daria's family gets more depth esp. Quinn and their mom, Jodie gets some really cool bits, Daria herself ends up having to face the fact that she's not actually surrounded by total idiots and she relies on the icy outcast thing to protect herself. But I'm remembering that all pretty cumulatively – it's spread out over the whole series, which is still mostly the really dry humor you might not be digging. It's not really a show you HAVE to watch in order, though – I think the first one I ever saw was the finale, lol. There is some linear development so you won't catch everything and some of these are some of the most climactic episodes in the show, so if you're not into that, ignore this. But if you're okay with skimming for the best stuff, I'd say watch these episodes to see if you dig 'em, and if you don't, it might not be for you:
>Gifted: Jodie and Daria tour a "gifted" school, end up hating it
>See Jane Run: Jane gets interested in track, Daria can't deal
>Daria!: musical episode, which I mostly remember for the fun format, lol
>Fire! and Dye, Dye My Darling: Biggest conflict between Jane and Daria in the entire series, a guy is involved, goes right to the heart of why their friendship matters so much to Daria and also forces her to look at the fact that she is also a dumb teen
>Boxing Daria: Last episode, barring the movies. Daria has a big crisis regarding her place in her family.

And she worked on "The Lion King" as the head of story (one of my all-time favorite films). I still remember a bit from the DVD, a sort of mini-doc about the making of the film, and she told a story about a father sending in a letter to the production team telling them he had to tell his daughter her mother had died, so he used the example of Mufasa and the Circle of Life to explain it. That bit stuck with me because Brenda starts choking up as she tells the story. You could tell it really hit her.

You’ve reminded me of a clip I saw a long time before the movie was released. It was definitely from when they were making Brave because it had a similar name and concept but I think it was 2d. It was really pretty and I was so excited and then disappointed when they started advertising the one we got. I’ve just let it go now but I was super confused for a long time. It had the same vibe as the intro sequence, which I love and creievrytime.

Saddens me because I enjoyed Turning Red. A movie about women and girls meant for women and girls. The struggles of puberty for women and the interpersonal relationships with each other. And the friend group is a strong bond of girls together. The bad numbers will only enforce moids shitty opinions about how bad female leads are. Fuck men. And fuck Disney, they put it on Disney+ without additional charge, of course that's a big reason the movie didn't make profit.

how ? the most disturbing thing was the "twerking" and it wasnt even meant to be sexy, she was trying to provoke her mother but they didnt emphasize the sexual appeal. she just looked like a child awkwardly pushing her butt out because she is. correct me if i am wrong, but i dont remember the camera being focused on her butt either. it wasnt sexual at all.
what was gross about the plot ? genuinely asking. i cant see any reason why an actual woman hating this unless she was a self hating female
and i am not even a fan of the movie, i just watched it with my friend and her little sister because the characters were her age and i wanted to spend time with them.

Them growing apart and having normal jobs seemed so unneccesary to me. It's the same old "and then you grow up and never have fun adventures ever again, but it's ok because you're a boring adult who likes it that way!". That is a sad ending to me, as an adult. Feels like it's written by a sad adult who had to abandon their dreams and now preach to kids that that is just "reality" and they "need to grow up some day". And they're only in their early 20s! You're telling me Anne's middle age parents were perfectly capable of becoming top secret alien fighters in the span of what? a few weeks? But the girls discovering other magical worlds and powers exist did nothing to peak their curiosity and instead opt for boring lives?

I would have been more satisfied if it just ended without the plot ever being solved and them going on adventures for the rest of their lives.

I'm not really super into monster high or fandom discourse so I might just be being retarded but I kinda get the feeling that mattel/nickelodeon might have undone the extra publicity they could had gotten from making Frankie a themlet by messing up the vibe of the designs. MH fans have been complaining for years about them taking any edge out of the designs which was making it lame but they just went and made them even more cutesy bubbly farty.
The people I follow online might be just too normie for this but the only time I've seen people mention the animated reboot is people weirded out at them making lagoona pink.

I kinda get the feeling they wanted to make the show more kiddy kiddy and they thought just slapping some woke stuff in there would keep the older (teenage and young adult) fans in. It will probably be easier to tell when they release a trailer of it.

Bob's Burgers is cheesy with an ugly artstyle but the writing and the characters are too endearing to not like it. I wish more tv shows actually focused onto families being human-like, hardworking and imperfect while also loving eachother despite everything, instead of pulling the same Homer Simpson crap all over again.

Me too Nonna! Bobs burgers brings so much happiness into my life and it really cheers me up when I'm sad

No. 225432

Yes nonnas!!!! Honestly if someone vehemently hates Bob’s Burgers I get bad vibes—it’s one thing to not enjoy the show because it isn’t your tastes but to hate it? It’s wholesome and fun, it isn’t like there’s gore and r*pe jokes like in family guy.

on the same topic, I really do like American Dad. Not really the older seasons as much, but once TBS got ahold of it, the show really seemed to get better. Francine is a cunt and I love her.

The only people I personally know that actually hate bob’s burgers work in the animation industry. You know, the industry with a ton of pedophiles and weirdos.

hating it for that one voice actor guy is completely valid. i've hated every show he's worked on because he sounds so boring i want to die.

No. 225447

I despise it. There isn't a single character on the show I find likeable or relatable. I hate Teddy so much I could write a 3 page essay on it. I hate all the kids. I hate Linda. I hate Bob. I hate the townies. I hate their dynamics and the "jokes" that boil down to "Bob is in an uncomfortable snafu and his obnoxious family and friends are making it worse haha how wacky of them". Then listen to the funny song aren't we a quirky show!

No. 225451

I found it really enjoyable after I started skipping all the Todd-centric scenes. The lol so random humor is genuinely embarrassing and brings down the whole show imo, which sucks because the parts of it that are good are really, really good. Secretariat’s poem in the second to last episode hit really hard.

Im so so so so glad Adventure Time ended before they could add trannies or the obligatory non binary woman to the show. They could have done my girl Marceline so bad… they could have made Susan Strong transition… ugh it’s horrifying to think how my ultimate comfort show could have been ruined.

No. 225465

I felt a bit conflicted on the lolrandum stuff. On one hand it's good to have it there as a contrast to the dark stuff so that the dark stuff pops more, but on the other it kind of ruins the worldbuilding. I found Todd more bearable in later seasons when he stopped being a straight up tard, but he was never one of my favourites.

No. 225551

Isn't the location based on the jersey shore? You wouldn't get it, there's a certain culture to going to jersey beaches and no, it isn't like Jersey Shore the reality tv show. For example, everyone knows a Teddy. Especially if you're the age of the kids, you will have to deal with a Teddy though not so often as in the show.

Anyone watching Tuca and Bertie S3?
I only caught the first 3 episodes so far since I'm watching them online

Slight spoilers for S3 episodes:

I kind of don't like how they regressed Tuca's character again to make her to the lol random friend that ruins situations for other characters but then everything works out in the end. I thought she would of ended up less destructive to herself this season but maybe we will see where she goes from here.

I liked the idea of the second episode where she was seeing a bunch of medical professionals and couldn't find out what was wrong with her, but it spent too much time on the bees part. Also the Kara cameo didn't really contribute anything.

The snake episode was meh, the whole snake joke was overplayed by the end. I'm curious to see if the Figgy character will reappear after the ending to this one

No. 225748

I love Bob's Burgers, but do agree with you on hating Teddy. He's so disgusting, and the writers really turned him into Bill from King of the Hill 2.0 with his obsession with Linda. The episode where he stored the kids bikes and said he pretends they're his kids' bikes was really creepy.

No. 225776

I love how much Bob loves Linda, he always goes along with her whimsy’s and tries to enjoy them.
I like Bob’s burger a lot but I get quite annoyed at Gene’s constant sexual innuendos and oedipus gag, istg if they troon him out.

I'm sure this is everyone's favourite from the last season, but "The View from Halfway Down" really stuck with me. The whole season felt like a bit of a fever dream, though, but not in the ex dee kind of way. I was hoping things would go well for Bojack, despite how awful he was, but then everything that happened felt justified too, so… there's a lot of things to think about with that show and season.

No. 226300

Watching first episode of second season, really hits home how most emotional growth and complexity in a show designed by a woman still is all on the male characters. Then including an abusive woman, Stella, as one of the few female characters and painted as a flat villain is disappointing. Not even the abusive fathers are portrayed as violent in this episode.

Was told to repost this here (from /snow/):

Major shakeups with David Zaslav stepping in as CEO of Warner Brothers Discovery. Scoob's holiday special was months away from finishing and has been cancelled. Little Ellen's latest season was completed and has been shelved and is now lost media. Final Space was not only cancelled but deplatformed and is now no longer legally available anywhere. Close Enough has been cancelled after 3 seasons. While most of the press has been focused on how live-action is being affected by the WB/Discovery merger the animation industry is likewise looking at an uncertain future, at least that under WBD's domain.

Zaslav is trying to get the finances under control (WB holds an astounding debt) and one way to do that is via tax write offs. They can use a show as a write off but in order to do that they are not allowed to profit off it in any way which means they can not release it. Evidently the tax write off is worth more than having these titles in their library. Longer term I think this bodes badly for western animation. The new CEO wants to trim up the amount of script-driven shows with the idea of having a smaller, current library of high quality heavy hitters and then lots of cheap reality entertainment. Animation is expensive and script driven and might not be popular enough to justify the expense in his eyes. They might pivot (like CN already was) towards focusing on animated content aimed at babies and toddlers ("Cartoonito").





This article is more optimistic: https://puck.news/zazs-tween-gamble/

Hard to say if that article is on the money or not, we'll have to wait and see. If WDB is orienting away from producing animated content for the tween+ set though then the Western animation industry is poised to take a big hit and current industry professionals will be vying for jobs in a much more competitive environment.

This image comes from a slide presented at WBD's Q2 Earning's Call this Thursday. Animation is directly implicated (in part) in a loss of 2 billion. The "restructuring of content" should give you pause since it is often corpo speak for, "We're gonna gut this".

New Animation Dark Age?

Warner Brothers Discovery is/was a major funder of animated content via Warner Bro's Animation, Warner Animation Group, Cartoon Network, and William's Street (Adult Swim). Netflix likewise recently restructured its in-house animation studio (laying off 150 people) and Disney recently shut down Blue Sky animation studios of Ice Age fame. So who's left?

>Disney (DTVA, WDAS, Pixar)

>Apple (Skydance)
>Paramount(Nickelodeon, Paramount Pictures)
>Universal (Dreamworks and Illumination)
>Sony (Sony Pictures Animation)

My niece was watching the new Snoopy show on AppleTV and I usually dislike children's media but this show was so fucking cute and dare I say comfy. It was modern and updated but still faithful to old peanuts media.

I’m gonna binge Tuca & Bertie tonight!

Is Smiling Friends actually funny? Anything it’s comparable to?

No. 229744

I think it's alright. It's not the funniest animated show I've ever seen to me that's probably Oblongs, I like the dark deprecating humor of it but I laughed sometimes. I'd compare it to Aqua Teen Hunger Force but faster paced and more internet humor if that makes sense? It was created by people who did NewGrounds animations so there's a lot of homage to that type of stuff there.

No. 229750

It's a good show to sink an hour into. Its very much an Adult Swim show with dashes of old school Newgrounds cartoon (exaggerated facial expressions, fast punchy cuts and a thankfully relatively mature sense of edginess). It won't blow your mind but it does its job well.

(Castlevaniafag sperging)
Idk if someone posted about the new Rondo of blood/SOTN castlevania plans Netflix has but as a fan of the games Im just so fucking tired of this shit.
I just know theyre gonna try to queer bait richter and maria into a poly relationship with alucard ughh. Also music was a really big part of the games so they'll probably fuck that up. I especially hate the showfags who haven't even touched a single castlevania game that try and dispute the criticism or nag that gamefags need to stop being nitpicky of the show and basically taking over and shitting up the castlevania subreddit. It couldve been great if they stopped trying to make character so bishounen looking and stopped trying to tumblr code everything. Warren ellis isnt touching it this time but at this point the shitshow is already leaking it seems.

No. 231025

I'm glad to see that somebody out there is at least trying to make more cartoons for children, you know, the reason why cartoons even exist.
Teenagers had sitcoms because they're supposed to be able to relate to real people in real situations.
These fantasy cartoons are nice for teens as well, but the themes are too deep or too complex for children that have to either watch paw patrol at 9 or watch amphibia or Star vs the forces of evil and not give a single tiny little fuck about who wants to fuck who because it's "icky" and plain awkward.

No. 231039

lmao no, cartoons don't exist because of children. They are on TV because they wanted to market to children though.
But I'm glad that not all cartoons for kids are poor attempts at "mature" complex overarching stories. I'm kinda tired of those. If people want to make that kind of series they shouldn't make them for children. Not only does the target audience (children) not watch them as much as older people, but the age rating restricts the creators a lot.
