There must be a reason why almost all of the cartoons is calarts style. Maybe is because of the time they spend on the story

Why cartoon Network is moving some shows to HBO+? I wanted to see The Infinity train Again, but I discover is in HBO. Now the Channel only has Teen Titans go, Mao Mao and Thundercats Go. Mao Mao is ok, but, is not as good as the infinity Train. If that thing is an online Platform, would be easier to pirate the shows?

Modern cartoons are so soft compared to the old ones. Things like Courage, Invader Zim(forget the quirkiness and you have a one of the darkest shows on nickelodeon) Ghostbusters New Generation and Ren and Stimpy, wouldn’t never see the light if they came today.

Why Sym-Bionic Titan was cancelled? I heard it’s because of the supposed toys the series have to sell for being on air, but I don’t remember seeing any titan related toy. It’s a shame the show was cancelled. It was way better than adventure time and steven universe. The last thing I heard it was about sony trying to buy the series, but I don’t know if they did it.

That isn't really true. The only reason why there aren't too many shows with similar edge is because of who the current batch of popular creators are. Network executives and the like have no problem with shows with a bit of edge if they think it will sell. Especially on streaming services where you have tons of fully edgy and unrestrained animated programing for a slightly older audience.

S'okay.

My only real issue/constructive criticism is that although I'm aware it's about AG and therefore his main focus, having it be a duet with Cherri Bomb instead of it just featuring her makes her spunky scenes feel off balance with Angel Dust's more serious tone.

But that's just me. Everything else checks out. 6.5/10

Why the Simpsons are not funny anymore? I tried to watch an episode where some gay friend of the grandpa and he kisses each other, and another where Lisa leave the U.S. It was the most boring episodes I ever seen. Almost all of the episodes are about Lisa being better than anybody on the planet, Homer being a bad person for not paying Lisa´s education at a better school, Bart doing pranks just for the sake of it and Marge being caught by every new trend. Like that time where she disguised herself as a drag queen just for sell tupperware. ¿What happened? This show was one of the funniest ever made, now, I think they make the most bad episodes trying to get cancelled

¿What happened with Klasky-Csupo? The last thing I saw from them was Rugrats Grown up, and that was during the 00s. I heard they were making a movie of real monsters, but it was too dark for kids, and monster inc was released recently, so they decide to make a rugrats movie. And also, what happened with a.k.a. Cartoon, the studio of Danny Antonucci, creator of Ed, Edd n Eddy? The guy is a genius. The show doesn’t have a single episode that doesn’t make laugh. The best comedy cartoon Cartoon Network will ever have.

I have no idea what the hell you are talking about.
The only rule here is the board rules.
If you want to talk about a cartoon you like then just talk about it. At worse some jackass that needs attention might pick with you (which you can report) and at best you will find that others share your enjoyment and wish to discus the matter further.

As someone that actually like Star trek I'm not watching that show.
The level of contempt that the creators of the show have for both classic Star trek and the original fan base is palpable.
I don't need to waste my time on something made by creators who hate me and the things I like. It's like watching a modern artist take a giant shit on a masterpiece by a Renaissance artist that I favor then expect me to praise them and pay them for it.

¿Why a part of the modern cartoons try so hard to be an anime? Look at Steven Universe. Almost everything in the show is an anime reference. The same happens with the owl house. Luz looks like one of the succubi from Magical Doremi, and there’s a character that look like a monster from Junji Ito.

 No.55929

>>55925
They do so not out of any bad intention.
It is because the creators grew up with anime and love anime so it comes out in their work in ways both large and small.

Most animators were inspired to become animators somehow, and the current front line of animators were inspired by anime.

I think it is more of a good thing then a bad thing because they mean well and they aren't trying to be something it's not. Only taking inspiration and occasionally making small references.

Because the writers and animators know that anime is far superior to their cheap trashy toons.

Western productions tend to cost more for the same number of episodes because we pay animators what they are worth.

I see you know little of the animation idustry in general.

The vast majority of animators in the US aren't unionized and there are no special laws beyond the standard ones that apply to everyone.

Animation is hard work and the people who do it deserve to be able to afford eat instant noodles and not have to have roommates to afford rent.

Exactly, cartoons today rely more on their stories, conversely, notice how older cartoons have original art styles like Flapjack but almost no history.

>original art style like flapjack
Flapjack's art style isn't original. It's the same noodle limbed bullshit that adventure time started. However the nautical themes and occasional 1800s scrimshaw designs are unique and interesting. I just wish the whole show was animated like that.

Flapjack had a story though. These days, cartoonists want to be praised for "complex storytelling" they stole from toonami's 2005 era shounen lineup. Flapjack had a great team of artists and tons of mixed media going on it, but it's pretty much dismissed as a gross out cartoon from an era of CN everyone ignores.

Wolfwalkers is such a fantastic movie.

It has been a while since I have enjoyed almost everything about a animated movie this much. The look, the animation, the story, the performances, everything just hits the spot.
Highly recommend it. 5 out of 5.

Everything about it was executed competently. I am not good at writing reviews or anything. It's good because I can't find fault with anything in it besides me not caring for some of the music I guess.

Been a while since I watched something Russian.

Movie is called Ginger's Tale (2020)
Story was a bit of a mess but the animation was mostly nice. Better then I expected but not really a great film mostly due to the writing and it just being all over the place when it came to just about everything.
I wonder if I will even remember watching this movie a year or two from now. It just doesn't feel like it left any lasting impression on me beside maybe a few ideas from it would be cool to add in a D&D campaign or something.

Whatever, like I said, I ain't good at reviewing things and besides this thread is just about done.
Check it out if you want to see what the Russians are up to when it comes to feature length animation I guess, or just bored and in the mood for something a little different.

Anne Hunter is probably the best episode in Amphibia, I was actually surprised by some of the jokes and music, really well done. I'll watch The Owl House now or maybe rewatch Invader Zim.
