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. That's number one on my binge dream list but it'd also be awesome to see Weekenders or Totally Spies again too. I know could find them online but I'd love to see them through again with ease on my TV.

In terms of TV animation my favorite are
Cartoon Network: PPG, EENE, Flapjack, Regular Show, and Clarence.
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.

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

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.

I especially love the background music from season 1 and im sad they changed it afterwards. 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 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 only watched it for Buttwitch since her character appeals to my simple brain in every way, otherwise I'll admit I most likely wouldn't have picked it up. It kind of has a discount AT vibe (which was discounted Flapjack anyway, which was just discounted SpangeBeeb) which is okay if you're easily entertained.
I'm hoping if there is a second season they'll further explore the humans getting stuck on Endless/other islands and the backstories of some of the islanders if any are ex-humans.

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 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 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.

i was never an Invader Zim fan before but I decided to watch Enter the Florpus on Netflix and I was blown away (currently watching the series). i absolutely loved it! the animation was fantastic, the color palettes were very cool, the jokes made me laugh and it was overall fairly written and everything felt like it was resolved properly. it felt like watching a very long episode.

i'm currently binging IZ for the first time ever. i do wish i'd been one of those longtime fans who enjoyed the movie as a second coming, but anything's good i guess.

I really want to love IZ again but the voice actors were dicks to me when I met them at a convention once and to this day it leaves a sour taste in my mouth because I feel like I'm supporting them when I watch their stuff.

Seen this pop up in Reddit and 4chan and now here. But these posts are from 2010 ffs. Why is the truth about her popping up now?

She is or will be, I’ve seen quite a few posts calling her out and exposing her.

she was supposedly fired before the show aired… for harassment towards fellow staff members from what I heard… so you could say that she was already cancelled by her own production team

but socially cancelled not quite yet, she's getting there tho

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.

Is SU worth watching if I find the tumblr SJW art style and design annoying af?
I find the whole mess with Rose/Pink Diamond interesting, but I hate how ugly the characters look and I am afraid that the plot will be very sjw/tumblr…

just give it 3 episodes
there's a bunch of filler, so I'm sure if you ask around you can find a list of episodes that are purely plot

the filler isn't worth watching at all but the plot heavy episodes are okay. ending is disappointing.

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.

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.

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.


>>48405
I have to agree.
Glad I wasn't the only one noticing a pattern in the credits of some cartoons.
