I'm waiting for the day Hulu or Netflix puts up Recess. I'd love to binge it in order and get some nice nostalgia.

Adult Swim: Superjail, Moral Orel, 12 oz Mouse.
Nick: Invader Zim
Disney: Wander Over Yonder
Fox: King of the Hill, Simpsons, BTAS.

>What are you watching right now?

Last two cartoons I watched are actually Cartoon/Live action hybrids. I watched Coonskin, which was fantastic I love Bakshi and it was a pretty funny Blaxsplotation film. I also watched The Wall, which was okay, but I think the better way to experience the music is through the album, the movie is missing tracks and has Final Cut stuff thrown into it.

Next thing I plan to watch is either Heavy Metal or Allegro no Troppo. I'm in the mood for more musical themed animated movies, Wall didn't have quite as much animation as I was expecting. I mean what it did have was great, but I want the whole thing to be animated. I've anyone has any movies similar that fit the bill please recommend them. I've seen Fantasia/Make Mine Music/ect all the Disney ones.

Currently I'm hyped for 'I lost my body' the concept looks cool, but I'm not so sure about the animation company. They've mostly done no name kids shows (shurkin school,zig and sharko, Floopaloo). the company is also trying out 3-D animation for the film, most of there work looks adobe flash-y.

I bet the film will be at least decent

There was backlash? I know there will be critics, but I mostly seen people liking the show. I think the only hype relating to it before release was if the show was in any way connected to Bojack.

Ehh I'm one of the people who doesn't like it. Besides the intentionally unlikable main character I just didn't find it engaging seemed to have lots of low-brow comedy. Personally as someone who struggles with depression I thought the main character was unrealistic and behaved more like a caricature of what someone has been told people behave like. Hearing it praised as a serious adult cartoon that tackles tough issues is frustrating.
I only watched through half of the first season though before I dropped it so take my opinion with a grain of salt. I've been told it gets better in later seasons but I haven't really wanted to continue.

Pergatony is good passable for a tv show you can watch online for free. The side characters are pretty funny, though the shows interpretation of death feels like a rip off of family guys version. The worst part of the show though is the main character. He's the embodiment of an incel (refuses to fix his problems and he hates his co-workers not because they're evil, but out of jealousy). The show would be a lot better is he never existed

How do people feel in general about more recent cartoons?

No. 39397

Honestly, I think a lot of kid's shows that are made now are also made with adults in mind because the creator is usually thinking of what they would like to watch/have watched as a kid. Of course, "kid's shows" in this context meaning those with a target audience of like 12-17 or something. Personally, I like all of the ones you mentioned plus Regular Show, Clarence, Over the Garden Wall, We Bare Bears, and The Amazing World of Gumball. I kind of prefer the cartoons that exist now over the ones I grew up with.

My only gripe i've ever had with it as a kid was just how disgusting it could be especially during later seasons. Im talking stomach churning. But it will always have a special place in my dead heart. Season 3 and onward it just got funnier and funnier which usually the opposite happens. It was also funny watching it as an adult and relating to grim and realizing just how shitty billy and especially mandy treated him for no reason lmfao!!

I seriously thought my high school would be like that not realizing they were rich af and from beverly hills lol. I tried rewatching it as an adult but honestly the first 3 seasons were perfect to me but the later seasons i feel like became increasingly more childish which was a shame because they were in college by that time.

I was scared of the movie being shit at first because of the switched art styles (characters edges seemed to be smoothed out and the color palette for backgrounds was a bit off) and the fact I thought it would be a direct adoption of the comic (which I hated), but I came out decently surprised. The character interactions are still great and though Im not The biggest fan of zims humor I found it funny. The biggest flaw of the movie though imo, was its biggest strength (not much of a spoiler, but general plot structure) In the end it just felt like a really long invader zim episode. Nothing about the characters changed, nothing was resolved, and at the end of the movie everything just resets like its preparing for a new episode to start. If you're looking for a satisfying conclusion, stuff like zim finally winning/losing or Dib proving to his dad aliens are real, you might not like the movie Also the tallest ship is still really obvious CGI and the tallest felt kind of shoehorned in the movie to me

I know it's not really popular here, but did anyone catch the Steven Universe movie finale?
I didn't think it was too bad. It just lent a better closure than the series finale did. I started watching this show when I was in grad school, and back then it was just a wholesome break from stress.

I thought it was gearing up to be unrelatable juvenile again but I didn't expect that 6,000 year ghosted best friend story that hit way, way too close to home.

The animation was pretty good overall and Bismuth was there which is all what i wanted, Steg was cool af too.

God, she’s adorable and I feel bad for her. The movie was alright, I try not to think about it so much and I’m just glad we got an hour’s worth of on-model animation. I thought it was great when she punched Steven in the face and said you can’t sing everything better. I wish she went back to her old appearance because those big doe eyes and her space buns are too cute.

No. 47773

I thought it was great. There was way too many songs though and only like 3 of them were good. I had a laugh at the fans trying to act like the crewniverse was the one responsible for the Other Friends animation that's actually fluid and good. Turns out, the Japanese animator who helped out in the series before came back for the movie so it was most likely him since it matches his style.

I love Spinel so much tho. I actually kept saying "aw" at the end because I was so happy for her. She's so cute

No. 47890

I knew it. Isn’t it Yoh Yoshinari? I’m a big fan of his and I can spot his smoke/flame effects a mile away but I wasn’t sure about that part because Spinel is so 30’s rubberhose. There’s something about the way that segment was animated, if it wasn’t his work then they definitely got another specialist in because none of the usual team animate like that. Feels like they actual animated along key frames for once. I don’t think it’s the man who animated White Diamond and Steven dance fusing his two halves back together.

Considering the voice talent, I think Steg’s scene was just one huge dose of author appeal. I get what they were going for in that sequence where Pearl gets her memories back, with the groovy sexy rock music and acid trip visuals, but that was executed pretty poorly. If I were a kid I’d be like "wtf is this where the fun" and lol no one can deny what it looks like: two lumpy fat dudes merge into a rockstar bara who’s ‘so cool’ he makes the lesbian starry eyed and shakes her whole world back together. He looks like he smells like sweat and hotdog water and they should have used that screentime for something else.

This is supposed to be a movie and yet there’s like three times where gems fuse and the silhouette is horribly tweened, not to mention Spinel’s gem turning upside down. Come on, if you care enough to want a Japanese animator to do your fight scenes couldn’t you pay consistent quality to those few frames which are the focus of the screen? This wouldn’t happen at all in a better production.

No. 48364

It’s actually not obnoxiously tumblry but it’s a mediocre show at best, why suffer through it for the ‘good parts’ when you can watch a show of consistently higher quality? Imo most of it is filler and the pacing to get to the plot important parts is frustrating, plus they can never decide how serious they’re being and how much of the comedy is straight slap stick or self aware. No villain is ever really a threat, they all get talked out of being bad because ‘they’re just sad and hurting!’ and the show even acknowledges this as a "joke" but still does it anyway. Imagine a show that wants to poke fun at the power of love and friendship but they also want to do it completely straight? I’m salty 3 out of 4 Diamonds have ugly sausage lips when they would look more appropriately goddess like with some mature lipstick.

No. 48385

Just watch the plot-heavy episodes you won't miss anything important if you completely ignore the filler, is not really tumblr-tier (to the point actual sjw's hate SU because it's representation it's mediocre) but brace yourself for shameless favoritism and blatant self-inserting from some of the writers including the creator of the series herself, you should avoid filler especially because there are literal prank episodes that bamboozle people into thinking something cool will happen because the titles of those episodes are misleading.

>but brace yourself for shameless favoritism and blatant self-inserting from some of the writers including the creator of the series herself

Nepotism on western cartoons is insane right now, i am personally very tired of how it is always the same little group of creators blowing each other horns or how it turns out they are all dating or longtime friends or related. All the teams are inbred, their affiliations and shilling are blatant. I wish there was more variety and openness towards more diversity of talent, styles and ideas but a lot of the sjw bigotry that keeps new influences out comes from within the industry, fueled by those same creators that got too influential and turned these companies into shut tight cocoons. I used to like Rebecca Sugar, by now i am so sick of her, i wish she were replaced, her stuff gets cringier and cringier.

The cal arts meme is a bit misguided because not all of them went to cal arts and the idiosincratic style is not really a thing from the school but from a social clique that is employed right now, but it is still kinda valid as an umbrella term for all this seemingly samey cartoons made by pretty much the same branches of people.

Tbh I always got that vibe from them. In the commentary they've done on Invader Zim episodes, they do come off a bit strange.
I can't necessarily blame them though since I've heard of them having very strange experiences with nutty Invader Zim fans. Like, one of them talked about how when he was signing an autograph for a fan and the fan then proceeded to bite his hand. Hell, even Jhonen used to get sexually harassed at panels because his fans are fucking nuts.

I have to agree.
Glad I wasn't the only one noticing a pattern in the credits of some cartoons.

I regularly check in with Natasha Allegri’s insta cause I like seeing any Bee and Puppycat updates (cause it’s the only place for any indication the damn show is still being made) - and I felt a bit miffed with this. The trailer was released over a year ago, saying it was vaguely returning in 2019. I wouldn’t even mind the pushbacks if she kept her fans informed of the process without regular prompting (which she usually ignores anyway) You would think after the previous Kickstarter and VRV backlash there would be more care put into these things, but nah. Bee and Puupycat is cute, but it’s kinda beyond me how it’s managed to keep a dedicated fan base all these years of waiting and frustration.

No. 59251

Bee and Puppycat is nothing but a big fat scam for a shitty story that barely makes any sense. Like cmon you've seen the animation.

Most of the fans are from her tumblr era I think, and since she worked on fuckin "Adventure Time" and said 'anime is cool' most just still worship her for that alone.

I did, it's great show, however it ended on cliffhanger.

I avoid watching it because they changed the character designs and the visual style in general. Original Invader Zim had more squarish look and darker colors, this new version looks like an attempt to make it more Calarts style friendly.

Clone High aired on MTV if iirc so it's aimed at older teens. It's one of the best western cartoons imo, the humor poking fun at popular teen angst shows of the time (like Dawson's Creek)

It ended on a cliff hanger and it was canceled I believe do to the fact that Gandhi was a character on the show (the best character) and a Hindu group protested against the show because of how they depicted him.

As someone who really enjoyed the original series, I think it sucks. It's fun to see the new gems and revisit old gems (though my jaspy deserved a whole redemption arch, not an damn half episode) but the main problem is how Steven is now (and even how he was in the movie).

He comes off more as a jerk than he does an angsty teen. And what was the point of showing the abuse Pink Diamond went through, and Steven himself even experiencing, if we're going back to Pink being the cruelest, worst character on the show? If anyone can sympathise with her it should be Steven, but now they've just walked back all of that progress with her character in a single episode (meeting Pink Pearl.)

Imo SU Future was a mistake.

I hate the art, but beyond that I don't think it's that bad. I wish people would just ignore it instead of giving it negative attention.

I dislike what the show represents more than the show itself. Hell, I dislike what the original Thundercats represented, too. Obviously selling toys is an important part of animated shows, but that doesn't mean they should be such transparent toy commercials.

I feel like stuff like this underestimates kids' intelligence. Stuff doesn't have to be stupid and ugly in order for kids to enjoy it and buy toys of it. As much as I loathe MLP:FiM's adult fanbase, it's a really good example of a show caring more about being interesting than selling toys (despite to that being its purpose.) Same goes for the new DuckTales. You can tell the people working on these shows really wanted to make something enriching and clever for kids to watch. I don't sense the same amount of dedication when it comes to all the reboots on Cartoon Network.

The autistic hatred for TTG in particular has gotten out of hand. I think the writing of the show has improved, and I think the inclusion of other DC characters was an interesting choice. Frankly I'm just glad this only happened to Teen Titans and not something I actually care about, like Young Avengers. Thank Christ I don't live in the "Young Avengers Go" timeline.

No. 111174

Hazbin Hotel sucks but honestly, I'm glad that it got picked up. If major producers picking up independent onine animations becomes a trend, I would love to see it. I'd rather have something unusual for Western cartoons like Hazbin Hotel become a full animated series than see regurgitated safe series from decades-old IPs, like Thundercats Roar and TTG.

But then why couldn't Hellava Boss been the one to be picked up.It's far better in terms of plot and characterization most likely due to the fact it's not her pet project.

It may sound like if I'm overreacting, but this is by far the worst adult cartoon I have ever seen.

It looks ugly as hell, it's not funny or clever, the characters are annoying, it has "Oh so clever, Pepe Trump lol!" Level of jokes.

I can't even tell if the people behind it had any sort of respect or love towards the anime they reference so much, it's the same feeling I have when CN shows have anime references, they just show either the Akira bike slide or an Evangelion poster but they present it like if it's the most amazing joke ever. Not a work of appretiation for the referenced thing but rather to say ~Hello fellow weebs~ because that worked on Steven Universe.

This is just a Panty and Stoking ripoff minus the fun, unique style or anything that made that show actually good and instead there's only bottom of the barrel woke-ness that just 2-3 twitter-fags will give a crap about in a few months.

I wanted to enjoy the story but it offers me so little. The visuals are definitely the worst part for me. I don’t exactly hate them, but characters are unlikable and the animation doesn’t help. It’s the lack of cohesion, it’s very annoying.
The presentation, the hehe so random funny corporate attorney. If 6teen’s humor and overall pace was mixed with a mahou shoujo Totally Spies and Mission Hill’s young adult woes but none of it was funny and it looked worse than something posted on newgrounds, this would be it.

The jokes entirely fell flat, like writers we get it the tomboy is a lesbian she doesn't need to scissor the air every five seconds. Why is the black one dressed like it's her first day at kindergarten. If you're going to make fun of Kill la Kill after you ripped off their transformation outfits try and not make the same meta jokes about the designs the anime did so much better? But the worse for me is just how braindead the writers are. The lesbian's transformation wand is her bong, they fight a weed monster. So conclusion is she smokes it right?

Well it's created by the real brains behind ATLA Aaron Ehaz so there's good lore building and the episodes flow into one another.

It's like Sailor Moon just they are same sex and in love not the point of their inclusion to the story. The main villain's VA is Koh the Face Stealer so his voice is just top tier shit.

I know this seems somewhat specific, but are there any good cartoons/comics (anything really) revolving around gangs/cliques and their hijinks with other gangs, but in a light-hearted way? making sorta like the cliques in bully or the gangs in the first half of a west side story

It's not what you asked but the third most recent season felt very rushed, as if the production was very aware of the three and done Netflix curse.
It's still good high fantasy and worth watching imo. Just avoid the fandom if you can.

I've only seen small clips of this show but I already hate it because of that one fart scene. Also the elf girl seems like a huge Mary Sue.

Just a personal nitpick but it bothers me how their off-white fur stands out more next to their shiny white gloves. Looks weird.
I'd rate the trailer ranging from unfunny to cringey, but then again I was never a fan of those three. I watched the show only for Slappy Squirrel who to this day is one of my favorite older female characters in children's media.

Jesus, you are right about their fur. It looks dirty.
