Title: what happened to the cartoons?
Post by: MitchZer0 on June 01, 2008, 09:24:43 pm
Remember back then when there was nearly BILLIONS of cartoons? Where are they now? No where sadly :'(. There are a few cartoons now, but there pretty annoying (especially the ones from cartoon network excluding the animes) and companys such as Disney don't really make cartoons, and I thought that was impossible.

your telling me...Dexter's Lab..Courage the dog, Cow & Chicken & all them where brilliant, but now its getting boring, like Camp Lazlo, My gym partner etc etc...i even have to say that Jetix (FoxKids UK) show some horrible cartoons, Captain Flammingo, unlike the greats of Jackie Chan adventure, Shin Chan, Digimon, Eek the cat etc etc

Jetix UK, no doubt. I looked at the range of shows it had before the early 2000's and every one of them are decent. I think it's how Fox handles the distributions of those shows and I recall Digimon came on at one time in March this year. Saturday mornings at Channel 4 used to be a godsend but I'm not quite sure what happened there.

Amazingly we can turn to YouTube to watch those classics. God Bless them, my Sons.

I see three reasons for it:
1) No-talent hack writers. Pretty much speaks for itself.

2) A push to make every children's show educational or make some point. Don't kids get enough of that sort of stuff at school or from their parents?

3) Polictical correctness (the point I hate most >:[). Nearly everything you can say, write, show, etc. will offend someone today. People will also run through stuff with a fine-toothed comb to make sure there aren't any hidden meanings or political points being made. It pretty much eliminates any entertaining plot you could write, and prevents the classics from being re-aired on public TV.
How many people here watched 'Rescue Rangers' in the late 80s/early 90s? You remember the Siamese Twins? Well they got placed at number two on a list of Disney's most offensive characters. And why? Because of using an oriental animal to represent Chinese characters. To me, that's as stupid as Australians complaining because a kangaroo was used to represent an Aussie character. There's so many examples out there for PC'ness. Another is the animated Noddy shows being banned because Noddy and Big Ears slept in the same bed in one episode. "Oh noes! They must be gay - ban it now!". Bloody hell, some people are so ridiculous.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. The majority of cartoons today are crap. If I ever have kids they're gonna be watching the classics I grew up with.

On the subject of TV Channels showing old cartoons, they seem to be getting better at that. I mean, Medabots is back on over here, for Pete's sake!

Though I wholeheartedly agree with the 'new cartoons = XP' thing. I could rant for England on that, but that's for another post...

Lucky! I want to see Medabots again.  :-[

I liked that series so much, I used to sing my own parody of a Lennon/McCartney song. Try to guess which one.

I can't remember most of the lyrics I made up.  ?:|

It's so sad how cartoon network's  cartoons are just annoying, especially with characters like fred fred burger (which makes emperor fred look like he has 54654654647474IQ), chowder(always says for example "this this this..." or "thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii..." over and over again), and i can predict that flap jack cartoon is going to be sucky >:[. make real cartoons next time cartoon network

Since I have internet I've been trying to get the cartoons that I really liked just for my children, I plan to have my first in this year... Anyway is sad to see how the cartoons have gotten worst and I try to be an open minded about cartoons; I like KND, SpongeBob, Fairly OddParents, Dave the Barbarian, Billy & Mandy, Danny Phantom, Foster Mansion and even some episodes of my Gym Prtner is a Monkey but os true that oir cartoons were a lot better and deeper... I just hope can get all Animaniacs in Latin Spanish for Yakko, Wakko & Dot teach my children to be as annoying and smart like I tried to be...

Even the japanese cartoons have gotten worst, I mean all that we get now are copies fropm old shows or psychological (boring) series where the characters spend all the episode taling about existentialism while to see to nowhere...I'm getting Ranma 1/2, Sailor Moon, Dragon Quest Dai no Daibouken, Street Fighter II V, Magic Kinght Raye Arth and obviously SPC for them... I don't have to ask for Dragon Ball, it always will be showed by TV...

I never understood whatt was the hype about Card captor Sakura, I mean, the arument was really stupid and Sailor Moon and raye-Arth had a lot more of action, I liked that cartoon but wasn0t the big deal for me... Pokémon would be good if follow the timeline iof the games; is irritating to see that ageless Ash with his dumb face everywhere and the Team Rocket already saturated me... Specially with the mexican traduction that became really annoying...

I still have some old school Pokémon VHS tapes back from the late 90's. The newest pokémon VHS I have is one from Jhoto. And we have maybe 6 of the 8 movies. But still, Pokémon season 1 pwns all and is def. FTW. But back to the old cartoons.
============
I enjoyed Dexter and Super Mario Bros. super show, and old school Scooby Doo, Heathcliffe, Garfield (He's from Indiana! WOO!), Samurai Jack (MAJOR FTW), Yu-Gi-Oh! (season 1 and 2), BLUES CLUES :P, Doug (Nicklelodeon one not the crap Disney Doug), Hey, Arnold! (that catchy jazz music in the BG) and so many others!!

The only good cartoons now a days are Fairy Odd Parents, Spongebob, Danny Phantom and some anime stuff :P

I like spongebob, used to like FOP but since "POOF" has been introduced i don't like it that much. anime, not much today holds my interest (i would say the pizza cat's, but sadly, it's not on air today, not even reruns  :'( :'( :'( ). But back then, there were lots i liked, wish kid(or mit), wuzzels, garfield and friends, new adventures of Winnie the Pooh (which sadly never airs any more in the US, only in the UK. The closest i ever  got to UK was the "epcot" world thing,  :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( ), I miss cartoons. :'(

Yeah, Fairly Oddparents is pretty cool with Butch Hartman, the creator of Johnny Bravo, having produced it. Certainly unlike Jimmy Neutron, which sucks...the only Jimmy Neutron I ever watch are the Jimmy-Timmy crossovers. I mean, you can easily tell which Jimmy Neutron scenes were written by the FOP writers because they were actually somewhat funny. Like the lunch sack scene: "That's not mine..." ::turns around sack revealing the name 'Carl Wheezer':: "That's not me..." ::turns around lunch sack again this time saying 'Oh yes it is!' with Carl's face underneath::

Spongebob is cool too, though it's showing it's age. By now, most of the jokes are too predictable.

Anyone here remember the Earthworm Jim cartoon series? That one rocked. 100% faithful to the video game. ^_^

Ah yes... I remember when tv was still good. Back when the Muppet Show was the best thing around, PeeWee Herman made a killing along with Mr. Bill and the Simpsons were just a twinkle in Tracy Ulman's eye.

Earthwork Jim had a catchy theme song and Evil the Cat was cool, but I think that was about it.I liked Powerpuff girls when they first came on. The shows in that generation from Cartoon Network were of legendary material, like Dexter's Lab and Samurai Jack. But, try to pick the shows that aren't still on anymore to reminisce about.  ::)

How about Danger Mouse and Count Duckula? Those were personal favorites of mine back in the day. And even though it wasn't completely animated, Square One was amazing. Hey, can anyone tell me if Freakazoid is still on air?

~Burkey

well this mostly counts as aruing
Why? I was just asking if that was the right way to say the phrase.
And from looking around the forum I assume Burkey is always like that.

Yes, it was made by the same guy who made Squirrel Boy, Everett Peck (hard to believe since Duckman was a masterpiece while Squirrel Boy sucked). Animation was done by Klaskey-Csupo, the same guys who animated Rugrats.

Oh TGL, you almost got that right. Jess Harnell is not a woman. He did do the voice of Crash Bandicoot, however. Here's what Wikipedia has to say:

Jess Q. Harnell (born December 23, 1963 in Teaneck, New Jersey, U.S.), is an American voice actor, best known for portraying Wakko Warner and Walter Wolf on Animaniacs and Hunter on Road Rovers. He also voices Joe Tabootie on the Nickelodeon show ChalkZone, Crash Bandicoot in Crash Tag Team Racing and Crash of the Titans, Spyro the Dragon in Spyro: A Hero's Tail and Spyro: Shadow Legacy, Jerry in Totally Spies and Doctor Finklestein in The Nightmare Before Christmas's video game spin-offs, as well as in the Kingdom Hearts series replacing the late William Hickey who voiced him in the film. He currently voices Captain Hero on Comedy Central's animated comedy Drawn Together and is the announcer for America's Funniest Home Videos. He also does the voices of Wooton Bassett and Bennett Charles on the radio drama Adventures in Odyssey, as well as Br'er Rabbit on the Disney TV show House of Mouse as well as in the Disney attraction, Splash Mountain (both at Disneyland and Walt Disney World). He was also a voice director on Eek! The Cat, What's New Scooby Doo, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Bruno the Kid, Terrible Thunderlizards, Life with Louie, The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest and Where's Waldo. He also made a few appearances on Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad, both on-screen and in voice-over.
He was most recently cast to voice the characters of Ironhide and Barricade in Michael Bay's Transformers, released on July 2, 2007, making him the only voice actor to play both an Autobot (Ironhide) and a Decepticon (Barricade).

So there's a few more awesome shows to add to the list of "whatever happened to the cartoons?"
My personal fav of the bunch is a show I used to watch alongside SPC. Road Rovers.

Here's a series of posts i'm doing for how cartoon network was  :-* but then just makes you feel like  :O .

Chapter 1: the early days of cartoon network

In 1992, WB made a channel that would show classic cartoons from 50s 60s 70s 80s and early 90s, called cartoon network, it had 1000s of cartoons, even if most of them ( and i mean MOST OF THEM) were made by hannah barbara, legendary animators,they also made new cartoons, and remastered old cartoons like underdog, it was all good back then :D

Chapter 2: Fridays, only more fun

Cartoon network was known well for it's blocks, but the best was Fridays. On fridays, random cartoon characters would host and sell merchandise. latter it showed even more cartoons and changed a little bit, until it died somwhere pre summer 2007.

Life:

1st: showed 5 cartoons, and sold stuff

2nd: more cartoons, stopped selling

Summer: different theme

3rd: acters and puppets, had a fool "Tuesudays"

3.1: actress switched

3.2:chic house theme

other:New cartoon madness, or some thing like that, and a few others

Fried dynomite:kids doing random #%$%, exploding corndog and random nachos theme

thursdays: same as any day, a very horrible day to do new episodes

so, yea cartoons, to actors, to random madness, to kids, to thursdays, fridays really changed, until it wasn't friday. so now, fridays are going to be boring, because cartoon network is going to be it's normal annoying ass self on fridays. we miss fridays , i do too http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UgO2-slISZs bye, fridays  :'(

Is it just me, or is All Dogs Go to Heaven the only animated movie that has ever had a decent sequel?

there have been many disney movies that got stupid sequels, Cinderella got 2 sequels, lion king had a prequel to the sequel, jungle book got a very useless sequel, lady and the tramp got the same, peter pan got a sequel, even the 1942 classic Bambi got a sequel, there are more useless disney sequels, if only walt was here

In Bambi's case, it was a 'mid-quel', sort of filling in the gap between when Bambi's mother was killed to when Bambi became a man full-grown deer. 'The Lion King 3' was a mix of a prequel and a parody of the first film (which really killed the emotion of the original, in my honest opinion).

I try and like all cartoons, such as this one which also has a cat and a crow in it:

(http://homepage.ntlworld.com/andrew_neilson/ane/bsm.jpg) (http://homepage.ntlworld.com/andrew_neilson/ane/C.jpg)

I must admit that Pink Panther and Sons passed me by, as did:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-ivsOE45j4

Which raises a point, why were there so many "and Sons" spin off's? You either get the main cast as kids (Muppet Babies), young versions of the stars but unrelated (Tiny Toons) or kids billed as the offspring (as above for Messrs Panther and Cat). "Cheep franchise extension" yes, but why bring in the young 'uns? Not to mention messing up the continuity ("Sonic and Sons" anyone?).

So what happened to the cartoons? They are still made, but with every year it's getting harder to point to one and say it's as good as the the earlier stuff. Getting more pessimistic, you could say the whole idea of television episodes, schedules and series will slowly disappear.

Meh. I'm off now to try and find a cartoon spin-off from a cartoon that was as good as or better than the original. And while I do that, try and imagine Samurai Pizza Kids (or Kitts, if you prefer).

Thanks for making this topic very very very hot, just because of that, i will put this in other forums, such as this one http://www.thesmartass.info/forums/index.php (it might be somwhere in the everthing and anything section), don't worry about the profanity of the forum's name, it's an ok forum. on that forum, im MitchZer0™℗

what was i thinking, putting the topic somwhere you can say #%$@ and everything, with a user named Werewolf, who is a cartoon and spc hater (i found that out when he nearly killed me for posting spc vids on the chat box and using the jon tailbain sprite on the chat box he would mostly use).

He was talking about TV in general with that quote, not cartoons or SPC. Also, don't forget TV is just one of many different mediums people use for entertainment, so just because someone wants TV to die doesn't mean they don't wanna watch anymore shows especially now that we have internet and DVD. I too think TV has become so terribly bland it needs to die off. These days I don't even watch TV anymore, I watch all my favorite shows over the internet, and many of today's shows are becoming more and more webcasted. I'm sure eventually internet will replace TV entirely.

I will agree with Cartoon Network sucking.

I also agree that, as a channel, Nickelodeon sucks somewhat. However, looking past the Zoey 101's and ICarly's and other nonsense aimed at 13 year-old girls and effeminate boys, there are some shows that still make it worth it. For example, I recently started watching El Tigre on youtube. At first I though it was stupid, and a little racist. But when I got into it, holy crap, I couldn't stop laughing. Avatar also makes the channel bearable to watch. Sure, people complain about how it's trying to imitate anime, but I look past that and focus on the entertainment factor. I like the show, the story and it's characters.

However, Nick Jr can still burn in hell for all I care. I actually sat down with my niece one morning to watch it, and I think I got dumber.

especially with that paper cut animation that wonder pets and pinky dinky doo used, when I saw the gameboy parody near the end was buttons on a piece of bread (I'm not kidding, it was a gamebread) I was nearly laughing my ass off on how stupid it was, do they think showing a game boy on an edu cartoon would scar children for life

Holy crap, I remember this movie! O_O

It just seemed like one of those obscure cartoon movies that I'd never expected to see again, until now...

Let's see, without even looking at any of the later parts, hmmm..... ::digs in his memory:: I remember this cute fox chick, I remember the painter trying to open the portcullis to some castle with his magic paint and having a bit of a hard time with it, and I remember how he 'defeated' the villain by pouring paint or some kinda potion down his throat and he all of a sudden turns good.

Seriously, this is all from faded memories when I was like 5, I've only seen part 1 as of this writing. Let's see how well I remember.

I'll report back to you guys. ::goes Youtubing::

Welp, I just watched all of Elm-Chanted Forest and it was one heck of a trip down memory lane. My memories of this movie are so distant and buried I didn't even remember having ever seen it until Pizza Zero posted it. It must've been at least 20 years since I last saw it.

Fifi is hot, Buddy is the kind of sports jock most people should avoid, cacti can be very fruity especially when they hate beaver *wink wink* and I just found that painting is as awesome as trippy movies on acid, with or without magic.

I was intrigued to find it was produced by a Croatian studio, and through looking around on Youtube I'm even more intrigued to find they even made a sequel, though sadly it's only in Croatian as they never made an English version.

The 80's were good times for fantasy movies...

OK, new post. for whatever reason it hit me at work yesterday - Mapletown. I'll bet the only one on this board who remembers Mapletown could be Vi, but since Mapletown and SPC have some resemblances, I thought I'd bring it back anyway.

Mapletown is like SPC in that it's a japanese animation by Saban revolving around a community of anthro animals, who even have similar features to our favorite mechanical critters. If you watch the show, they have some of the same mannerisms and the animation is almost identical. Even the sound effects/music sounds similar at times, and there are characters in Mapletown that have a status to those in SPC. Take a look, see what I mean.

http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=85gLSA8o2-0
i wish i could have found another episode but it seems like a hard-to-find series. I barely remembered it.

The same voice actress who played Deedee also played Lala on Mapletown, and Naoki Tatsuta, who played Jerry Atric did the part of Youta from Mapletown too.


Title: Re: what happened to the cartoons?
Post by: Methid Man on October 27, 2008, 01:36:41 am
Holy crap, I remember it! O_O

Just barely though, I was very little back then. As soon as you mentioned 'Mapletown', I had a feeling I heard it somewhere...

Let's see, without even looking past a few seconds of that video, I'd like to see how much I can remember of that show... It had a rabbit girl, a snobby fox girl, some boy bear and a thief dude... I think he was a thief... I remember one episode where there was a heat wave and the rabbit girl ended up getting some kinda heat exhaustion while trying to take a pail of water somewhere...

I'll watch the video later to see how well my memory measures up. Goodness, this really digs up long-buried memories I forgot I even had...and I never would've thought it'd have any connections to SPC!

Post by: Mechadon on October 28, 2008, 06:38:43 pm
I've never seen either of those before.

This brings me to think of something that has been bugging me for years. SPC was the first anime I've seen. Dragonball was my second. I usually tell people that Sailor Moon was my third, but it really isn't. That's because I can't remember the name of the third one. Finially I've thought to ask about it.

It was centered around a little frog and his friends. Judging by the animation style, it was definitely geared toward a younger audience than SPC. I'm talking pre-school stuff. But as we all know, Japanese cartoons, even the pre-school stuff, can be real smart s*** with deep characters with emotion and crap like that.

The only title that sticks in my mind is "Kerupo". I don't really think it's that, but it's similar. Definitely started with a "K"

and it isn't Sgt. Frog.

Nevermind, I found it. It's called Keroppi.


Title: Re: what happened to the cartoons?
Post by: blind2d on October 28, 2008, 09:40:57 pm
Course not. SGT FROG wasn't an anime until, like, the 2000's (or whatever you call this dumb century/decade). I'm a fan, by the way. Dororo-kun ftw!

do you mean kerokerokeropi? (http://www.ri.net/schools/Narragansett/NES/Classrooms/BlumenbaumA/Author's%20Tea/kerokero.gif) that's from hello kitty, i believe.

And to Vi:  Yeah, I had no idea that it had ANY relation whatsoever to SPC until I rewatched a clip from youtube a couple days ago and noticed the startling similarities. And I agree that it sounds like it could be from the same Canadian studio, which made me do some research into it to find out if I was right. I had a feeling you would remember it! Never heard of PalmTown though. Looks really cute! :)


Title: Re: what happened to the cartoons?
Post by: Mechadon on October 29, 2008, 01:08:36 pm
Yes, yes that would be the one. I can't remember it being from Hello Kitty. Now that you mention it, it did air very closely with a Hello Kitty anime. It might have been part of the same show. Your guess/knowledge is as good as mine, if not better.

Does anyone remember one called Patrol 03? It was about anthromorphic animal cops working with the mayor to foil the plans of the corrupt police cheif Pamela. The series was rather light hearted and featured some of the voices for SPC. I know that Mayor Walrus has Guru Lou's voice, and Shorty sounds like a younger General Catton.

Kappa Mike: made fun of animes.

Oh yeah i just saw where 4 kids is bringing back Biker Mice from Mars so hopefully they'll bring SPC over uneditied.

"uneditied"? ROFL!!!!!!!! they'll just bring it back 99% more bastardized, not that i hate spc, i love spc, 4kids might might turn the pizza cats sign into "         " they think kids can't read, i think spc belongs more on sci-fi since it has sex jokes, and at least sci-fi isn't racist like 4kids

While I could really go for a Pizza Cats revival (mostly so I could play a new Pizza Cats game or own some merchandise), the humor would definitely suffer if 4Kids redid it.

I saw an episode of Rocko recently where Heffer went to Hell for some reason.  I sat there thinking "how could they get away with this?"  Then I remembered it was made back before the FCC went overboard with censorship.  You could never get away with sending someone to Hell in a kid's cartoon in this day and age (and before you jump on me with South Park, let's remember it's not meant to be a childrens' show).

yea, all cartoon network is doing now is making cartoons that are just plain annoying and showing rated pg-13 live action movies like Jurassic park, nick just makes cartoons that last a few months or a year at the most, disney channel just has one cartoon running for a year and makes another one, and disney never makes a cartoon that wins awards, not to mention disney is bastardizing their old cartoons by making ether a cgi educational show, or making a s**ty sequel which barely has anything to do with the first movie, back then, a new (pretend your in the 20th century) disney movie would always be a called "a magical masterpiece", now, a new disney movie is just an average everyday movie, I don't want to see a whole entire high school of stupid teens, I want to see something that is magical again, with castles and fairy tales, just like disney was and should of stayed as

it also  doesnt help how animation looks like s**t now, they could make an action packed intro with the animation in the late 70s, 80s, and 90s, now animation just looks like paper with crayon marks,

anyways, I don't mind all of the live action shows on disney, just the over rated ones (over rated as in WAY too popular then it should), I do like zach and cody, i like thats so raven, and cory in the house, i sometimes watch hannah montana but i dont really care about it

*flashback* kid gets bitten by a snake *end flashback*
kid 2 says "this is like when i was kicked by a horse!"

It seems like the compelling story telling elements of cartoons are left mostly to anime these days.  And of course, we have 4Kids TV to kiddie them up and take out important parts of the story (as well as common facts of life, like death).

Wans't there a cartoon by the name of Bobby's World? I slightly remember it cause the main character was a kid that rode around on a big wheel.

Tail Spin I remember that cartoon. I also remember the video game. I had it on the sega Gen.

Wow, I remember watching The Adventures of Tin Tin back when it was on HBO. Now that was a cartoon with a good sense of adventure.

Bobby's World was awesome too. I always overlooked that show thinking it was just a regular old cartoon about a little boy, but looking back, I realize it was actually charming enough to watch.



BTW, does anyone remember MTV's Oddities? Anyone remember "The Head"? It was a weird show but in a lighthearted and entertaining way. It also taught the value of the difference of people, even if they're odd-looking, without making it annoyingly obvious that it was teaching you something Hey-Arnold-style.

I'm really disgusted with Cartoon Network these days since now they are airing live TV shows on a cartoon only channel. Isn't it supposed to be called "Cartoon Network" for a reason?! :P If you want a channel that airs both cartoons and live action shows, we have Nickelodeon and Disney.

Post by: MitchZer0 on August 01, 2009, 07:11:29 pm
recently, i saw a commercial on cartoon network where they said this

Quote from: random idiot staff member from cartoon network
this white part shows the cartoons on cartoon network (white part takes up more room), the black part shows cn real (black part is really tiny)

1. that is false because there is barely any cartoons on cartoon network, and the only cartoons on cartoon network are either more random then me talking about madam mim, or just weird cartoons geared towards 16 year old teens

2. the black area should be no existent, IT'S CARTOON NETWORK, NOT REAL NETWORK!!! it seems like this all began when they showed dumb and dumber and Jurassic park, then take honey i shrunk the kids, A DISNEY MOVIE, and put it on cartoon network, but then again, nick did the same thing with the live action scooby doo

and kind of off topic, i noticed a commercial that was racist, it was a juicy drop pop commercial where they had a contest to see who would drink the most candy juice, the white girl won, while the black kid lost


Title: Re: what happened to the cartoons?
Post by: sans soul on August 02, 2009, 07:11:21 pm
technically they can play whatever cartoons they want and still be called "cartoon network". just because you can't watch your precious disney cartoons or beyblade all day on there doesn't mean they aren't playing cartoons at all.

and by the "real network" thing, i think they mean some new promo they're doing giving "real kids" some airtime while asking them cartoon-related questions. i don't watch much tv, but i happened to notice it recently.

Post by: KyoZaber on August 03, 2009, 12:58:23 am
For the most part, I think Cartoon Network has seen it's glory days, and currently is in a rut.
For me, it all slowly started back with SpaceGhost Coast to Cost... Got faster with Toonami, then climaxed with a lot of the original stuff they made.
I'm talking about...

- The Power Puff Girls
- Dexter's Lab (The originals. Not the attempted re-launchs.)
- Samurai Jack
- Ben 10 (Not Alien Force.)
- The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy
- Megas XLR
- Johnny Bravo (Second Season)
- Codename Kids Next Door


I honestly wonder what things are like inside of CN nowadays. I haven't seen nor heard of anything new from Cartoon Network Studios in a while.
Are they still there? Are any of them working on new projects? If so, what are they working on? Were they canned? What happened to some of the directors and writers that came up with a decent amount of content that was pretty good?


Title: Re: what happened to the cartoons?
Post by: Methid Man on September 03, 2009, 01:21:29 am
Cartoon Network started getting cool back in the day when Williams Street came to the picture. Space Ghost, then Toonami, then Adult Swim. Eventually, though, the execs sprouted dollar signs in their eyes and decided it would be best to turn CN from a cartoon-lover's channel into a Nickelodeon clone, going so far as to neglect Toonami, then later cancel it and replace it with "CN Real". Just the name itself is frickin' retarded. It's practically a joke.

Thankfully we still have Adult Swim but that's basically a network of its own. I'd like to see the old Cartoon Network back. Sure there's Boomerang but not everybody can afford to jack up their cable bill when they only want one channel.

Most of those movies where made by Pixar, and they werent so bad...

House of mouse was in my opinion the last decent cartoon made by Disney... the best part was when they showed old cartoons there...

ben 10 sucks

also i would love to smack a baseball bat over handy mannys head  >:[

if you compare ben 10 with all the other cartoons these days it rocks...

I do agree ben 10 sucks but the animation looks a lot better then the average American cartoon of today.

For some reason, Nick Jr. decided to make Dora older for some odd reason, and change her look.

One thing about Ben 10, whoever does the merchandise production/sales here in the UK has got that spot on. Any shop from discount supermarkets such as Poundland/B & M's to HMV to huge ASDA's will have some small collection of Ben 10 nik-naks for sale. Usually next to some Power Rangers stuff.

I had a rant typed up here about something, but I thought better of it. I'll write some letters instead.

Let's all be glad Disney gave us a decent 2D-animated movie. "The Princess and the Frog" was pretty good.

We need a new, good primetime cartoon show that isn't the Simpsons or Family Guy. I'm talking about a show that can tell a story.

The show that came close to that standard was "King of the Hill" which is now a discontinued series. If you mean story as in continuous sagas, anime is pretty much the only type of animation that has ever pulled that off. I mean, when it comes to prime time they can make live-action sitcoms and live-action dramas, yet they only bother to make cartoon sitcoms, here in North America anyway.

And let's face it, anime is just a niche market; almost nobody other than animation fans will watch it even if it rocks so it's automatically doomed to bomb.

I disagree, the japanese animation started to degenerate a couple of years ago... And it didn't degenerate alone, it also degenerated the american series, the DevianArt galleries and a lot more...

The most recent Saint Seiya OVAs are crap if you compare them with the 80's series, 85% of animax shows are unoriginal, stereotypical and filled with cliches... The over use of unnecesary "Hentai" content, gore ands typical emo students just kill my desire of watch any japanese series...

Um... No it doesn't. I've given up on anime for a while now. Not entirely. I still think it can come back. Truth be told I don't care whether it comes from Japan or not. Seriously, we live in a global world now (sound kinda stupid to say "global world". Like "person human"). Get some international teams together and make something awesome. Enough of the androgynous demon hunters with big swords. Give it a rest and give me something REAL.

Want a great new anime? Soul Eater rocks pretty hard. Gurren Lagann still has teeth, and if you like the 80s style more, nothing beats the original Macross/Robotech deal. I just realized how different the animation quality is between Witchblade and the first season of Pokemon.... wow. I still like it though...

I think the new fma is still good enough to watch, and of course there are still naruto and bleach which are also still going on. besides those there are ea few others I watch but most are just too short, not more then 30 episodes and that's the onliest thing thats so negative about most animes.

I see three reasons for it:
1) No-talent hack writers. Pretty much speaks for itself.

2) A push to make every children's show educational or make some point. Don't kids get enough of that sort of stuff at school or from their parents?

3) Polictical correctness (the point I hate most >:[). Nearly everything you can say, write, show, etc. will offend someone today. People will also run through stuff with a fine-toothed comb to make sure there aren't any hidden meanings or political points being made. It pretty much eliminates any entertaining plot you could write, and prevents the classics from being re-aired on public TV.
How many people here watched 'Rescue Rangers' in the late 80s/early 90s? You remember the Siamese Twins? Well they got placed at number two on a list of Disney's most offensive characters. And why? Because of using an oriental animal to represent Chinese characters. To me, that's as stupid as Australians complaining because a kangaroo was used to represent an Aussie character. There's so many examples out there for PC'ness. Another is the animated Noddy shows being banned because Noddy and Big Ears slept in the same bed in one episode. "Oh noes! They must be gay - ban it now!". Bloody hell, some people are so ridiculous.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. The majority of cartoons today are crap. If I ever have kids they're gonna be watching the classics I grew up with.

Post by: MitchZer0 on April 23, 2023, 11:19:34 pm
I know it's pretty bad on me to necrobump such an ancient thread, especially with a lot happening. It does seem like over the past decade that TV cartoons had a revival and cartoon movies went right for CG, and it's gotten a lot better, we've come a long way since Toy Story. I've also changed a lot since 2008, I'm no longer a dumb emo 12 to 14 year old, and instead a dumb 27 year old... I didn't say I changed for the better mind you, but I really don't want to look at my old posts. I still like Hannah Barbara stuff, yeah, but I'm no longer that old CN fanboy kid.

But One thing I've noticed is that Disney seems to be in an animation slump again, after having it come back after tangled and Frozen being a mega hit (regardless of you're opinions on it, I do appreciate how it seemed to reignite Disney's spark in animation), they seemed to have slumped with their last two movies.

I guess I already said it best in my journal on my Furaffinity a few minutes ago (typed on my phone... ouch), so I'll just repost it here.

Quote from: My FA journal entry
Does Disney hate animation again?

Why do I say again? Well, I remember the mid to late 2000s, they didn't do much animation outside of Pixar. Their main product was dumb tween sitcoms and movies, Hannah Montana was more the face of the company than the mouse himself, it was kinda a rough time to watch Disney.

Then Princess and the Frog happened, it was good, but didn't do well commercially... but something about it reignited something in Disney, after that was Tangled, which was 3d cg, but did well enough, and led to Frozen, which did gang busters. Regardless of your thoughts on Frozen, it seemed like Disney went all the way back into animation with it.

But recently, it seems like Disney would rather make soulless remakes and pump their marketing into such, occasionally they'll trickle out an animated movie, but give it next to no marketing. I doubt anyone noticed strange world existed, but... it did, I didn't watch it, but I heard next to nothing about it aside from some guy on /co/ or something saying it's like journey to the center of the earth. Before that was Raya, which I did watch and liked... but again, barely any marketing, Raya and Strange world both did horribly [in the box office].

So my issue with Disney's live action remakes are... many, mainly their colors and lighting make them look soulless and depressing, compared to the originals which looked warm and colorful. Another is... these movies didn't need remakes in live action, many said it was copyright renewal, but seeing as even very recent ones like Moana are getting the treatment, it doesn't seem to be that... or just that. Is it to appeal to the (dare I say) normie audience, who have the thought of "If it were so good, it would be live action, we have computers, no need for kiddy s***"? Does Disney hate animation again and wants as little to do with it as possible?

Is animation dead? Well, the Mario movie was pretty damn good, kicking Disney's ass, pretty embarrassing that Illumination is dabbing on Disney. But yesterday, I watched the new Puss and Boots on 4k under bluray on a damn good TV, and... it exceeded the hype everyone has for it. It was a very, very fantastic animated film. It really was like the type of movie Disney abandoned, it's almost perfect in just about any way I can think of. So I guess that settles it, animation is not dead.

So is Disney going to learn anything from it's competition, make great animated films again and actually put marketing into them? I'm not holding my breath, but I guess one thing we could look forward to this 3rd Disney Dark age is everyone but Disney filling the void with what Disney won't give us, just like 80s brought us Heavy Metal and many Don Bluth films, hopefully DreamWorks,... Illumination... maybe even Sony can bring us quality animation.

So animation isn't dead, even anime is doing pretty all right in American theaters. Like I've mentioned, the new Puss and Boots was fantastic in every regard and the Mario movie was pretty great as well. But it is a shame to see Disney in a slump, considering they were once (well, twice really... or thrice) the leaders of western animation. Seeing the new Puss in Boots, it makes me wonder what Disney could do at their best now, if they were into animation.

Oh yeah, that new Spiderman movie... Isn't that sony? I don't know, I don't really do super heroes, never did.

And I guess TV animation is in an interesting spot, just wished adult cartoons could be more than just random sitcoms and we can get one that will run for a decent length of time, but whatever. I guess the trinity of Simpsons, Family Guy and South Park is still going alright and Bob's Burgers seems to be doing well.

Also children's cartoons, not exactly a fan of their art directions, and honestly I haven't paid much attention to them (I can't really tell the difference between Amphibia and Owl House), but I hear they're alright.

Oh, Hazbin Hotel and Helluva Boss seem to have really strong followings, not bad for indie cartoons. I still need to give them a look.

A bit of a followup, since I sorta accidentally wrote myself into one, though I wasn't expecting  a new animated Disney feature (https://youtu.be/ctlz0R1tSZE) to be announced in under a week.

Seems liken they're playing it safe, but it looks like it could be a fun movie, might check it out.

Are they playing it safe because of previous financial disappointments? Nah, I know enough about animated features to know they take a long ass time to make, this was most likely in production for a decade. Hopefully they market it this time.

The title might cause some confusion, since there's another Disney Wish (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disney_Wish)


Title: Re: what happened to the cartoons?
Post by: MitchZer0 on November 27, 2023, 12:20:07 am
So I haven't watched Wish, but all I've heard about it is that it's not very good. Shame, considering I also heard that it had a lot of interesting stuff left on the cutting room floor.

Not sure if I'll see it in theaters or wait until it inevitably hits Disney+ just to see how it went.

Oh yeah, New inside Out that looks pretty mediocre, and Toy Story 5 is also eventually coming, looks like Disney really is flexing their creative muscles lately. Legally obligated to say that was sarcasm.


Title: Re: what happened to the cartoons?
Post by: MitchZer0 on December 20, 2023, 10:03:56 pm
Since the year is ending, I have to say it's an interesting year for animation.
Disney on their 100th birthday of all the times is struggling, the more I hear about Wish, the worse it sounds. The rest of this year's Disney Catalog isn't doing so hot though... Thankfully like the 80s Disney slump, others seemed to have stepped in.

Mario was pretty good, surprising for Illumination, but I'm sure Miyamoto was basically breathing down their necks during the production, making sure the studio didn't mess things up. It should be interesting to see where the inevitable sequel will go, as for other Nintendo franchises jumping to cinema, Zelda is confirmed getting a live action movie. But what else could get an animated movie? Maybe a Donkey Kong spinoff? A Kirby movie? Who knows. Not really animation related, but I think an Elite Beat Agents movie would be really good.

While I didn't see it yet, I've heard really good things about Nimona, I have to check that out soon.

There was a Trollz movie... another one, not my thing, I'm not the target audience honestly, but the detail in the trailers looked pretty good, I'm sure the target demographic would be pretty happy with it.

There was some other movie... was it some squid movie or something? I heard that did really badly financially, ouch. Shame, looked interesting, but I'm kind of afraid it might be rather middling.

I'm ashamed to admit I didn't watch the newest Ghibli movie, I did hear many have hype around it.



What about stuff to come? I hear Sony is working on a new project that sounds like it could be interesting, but Sony tends to not hit as hard honestly. Could Disney redeem themselves (Nah, I doubt it, unless Iger goes or some shake up happens, and even then it's going to be a long while, animation takes time)?

Oh yeah, Toy Story 5 is something that will happen... not sure why, Toy Story 4 had great visuals, but ended on a sour note for me, would be worth checking out just to see how Pixar's visuals look, Toy Story always tends to be a good representation of the state of CG animation, and we have come a long way since the first one.
