There are dozens of other more appropriate threads to post this yet you choose the one where it's off topic.

Watched Smiling Friends Season 1

It was alright, made me smile. Stuff like people exploding and random acts of things being smashed make me laugh and that's a lot of what got me. There's not really any clever humour. It's moreso observational and absurdist comedy, but about nothing in particular. You can tell the creators were just having a lot of fun with it. A lot of the characters are voiced by random internet and video game hasbeens but no real obnoxious personalities like Twitch stars.

I watched it because I kept seeing clips posted online that were kinda funny on their own but turns out those clips make up almost the entire season because it's only 7 episodes at 11 minutes each.


It's interesting to see the culmination of these ex-Newgrounds guys' careers. They've been trying to break into the industry professionally for about a decade, now.


These newgrounds and youtubers are funnier and more clever than hollywood writers.


Maybe, but they suck at networking, logistics, and organizing large teams so it's rare they get far.

Animation is usually a large group effort once you get to the point of producing tv or feature length projects.
There are rare exceptions but most of those exceptions didn't come from newgrounds.
The main problem is the solo/small team workflow and tight community that causes the best success in the newgrounds and youtube short form content format don't translate to the large group networking, organization, and delegation skills necessary to make it in the mainstream. So it's rare for them to breakthrough unless they basically remake themselves to fit the shitty hollywood scene. Often losing the creative and unique things that made them stand out in the first place in the process.

The Spine of Night

Seen the box cover at the store and that it was a adult animated film I had never heard of so once I got home I gave it a go. Went in totally blind and didn't know what to expect.

It was pretty different from just about anything that came out in the last few years so it's got that going for it. But personally I wasn't really a fan. The writing, the performances, and most of all the execution of the animation style were all not to the quality level I expect from a feature length movie.

Still, it being quite different from everything else that came out in a long while was refreshing, and I was never bored throughout the whole runtime.


Going far in to the past can be quite fun.

I was never into Transformers, not even the animes, but remember really liking Beast Wars when it came out. Re-watched it now. The first season was very disappointing, all the characters and their actions were excessively dumb, and it didn't even had a point, every episode the Maximals would do something dumb for no actual reason and be outdumbed by the Predacons, just to lead to five minutes of them shooting around each other, not that it would make any difference because when they landed a hit it was of no consequence. I know it's supposed to be just a pretext to sell toys, but that's not an excuse. But then came season 2 and it was absolutely amazing, great overarching plot, character development, several memorable moments, I'm glad I didn't drop. Season 3 dumbed down back, I don't know why they didn't keep the tone.

The Maximals were very uni-dimensional, either boring or annoying. Cheetor and Rattrap were too annoying, and I hated Silverbolt so fucking much. The "nonono if you kill bad guy then you bad guy" is stupid and got old fast. The Predacons were much deeper and better worked, even the ones that changed side. My favorite character was Dinobot, and Waspinator was legitimately funny. The power scale doesn't make sense either, one episode the character gets a new form and defeats everyone at the same time, then next episode he just gets inactive after a single shot. And some things were overdone like "shot from the back while being inattentive on the battlefield" and "crushed by a boulder that was behind". I will still try Beast Machines though, never had the chance to watch any of it when younger.


The oscars are worthless garbage, especially when it comes to animation.


I thought it was an ok show thats been extremely overhyped by people who have a parasocial relationship with the people who made it. I'm glad these guys are getting their shot rather than some dime a dozen LGBQT animation twitter psycho but the cult of personality shit around it is so obnoxious and i don't think the show is good enough to overshadow it. They're obviously still finding their feet so maybe season 2 will be better.


Do you think Shrek would have gotten over his loneliness in time to become a truwiz if Farquad didn't interrupt his life? Or perhaps was he too broken to not be a wiz at all? After all, he did allow himself to have romantic feelings for Fiona. I don't know if he could be trusted even if Shrek 1 never happened.

I don't know if it was the oscars or not, but I remember there was a year where some voters didn't know any of the animated nominees, called Song of the Sea "Chinese"(It's Irish), and just gave their votes to the Disney movie because it was the only one they knew, even if they didn't see it.


A general distaste for the Walt Disney Company and its practices had solidify Nickelodeon's motivation to limit size and avoid feeling "corporate".
All of this was thrown out the window after Spongebob premiered.


I've watched all of Helluva Boss, and, I watched Hazbin Hotel. For being a gay cartoon with equally gay characters the animation is high quality and its overall very enjoyable


pozzed trash looks like shit, you are talking out your ass.



Finally got around to giving Hilda a chance.

3 episodes in so far and my first impressions are it a little slower and more relaxed in it's story telling then I would prefer but the characters are endearing and world is very interesting.
I am eager to see more. I just hope that them moving to the city doesn't begin dog-whistling "the message" or have things generally go to shit.
What got me interested is the otherworldly shenanigans. If it becomes another Steven universe I am fucking out.


Even if i despise the nihilism of rick and morty,and the show too,i cant stop liking this claymation shorts


I just found this stop motion movie based on Midsummer Night's Dream.


What happened to Zone after that? Hes still with the skulgirls dev team

Here's the final battle between the African Sorcerer and the Witch of the Flaming.


Thats remind of a lovecraft animation i saw years ago


found this fan stop motion animator channel.


>HBO Max has revealed the first look at its upcoming Clone High revival. The animated series is set to premiere this spring, with new episodes airing weekly.


age-restricted… does the teaser look as bad as the thumbnail suggests


It's bad.
old show with new characters
(the new characters are all INTERNATIONAL and they're the smart voices of reason)

new jokes
(about iPhones and Instagrams)

White man


The owl house is already over. This is the last episode



Thank God that woke garbage they tried to pass as anime is over only the frog one is worse.


will hear no hateful talk about comfy frog show!!


First season frog show comfy.
Second season frog show adventurous.
Third season frog show, much Californian man make stupid face. Now not frog show, but Californian show.


im watching samurai rabbit: the usagi chronicles

the plot is fucking shit (young wabbit guy wants to become strong and fight yokai) but its very visually pleasing to me.


which cartoons are the closest to anime. i need stairs to even reach the slippery slope of cartoons


Avatar The Last Airbender, Teen Titans, Samurai Jack, Ben 10, Batman The Animated Series


damn. i already watched those growing up. ill have to check some sort of cartoon database and just search for specific tags that would interest me i guess


It looked like ass since episode 1, "Calarts and mud" the series.
Samurai Jack is overrated as fuck, how is that shit even remotely related to Anime visually? the mc looks like the scientific from the power puff succubi.


it does have big eyes, and the unique, stylistic, experimental art direction and animation is more commonly seen in anime than in cartoons, it is also heavily inspired by Kurosawa which is something that applies to many anime as well, there are plenty of similarities so it's a fitting recommendation for someone who is mainly into anime and looking to broaden his horizons, it's a show about a wandering samurai for
fucks sake


Ass superhero list from someone who never seen a carton in his life
Totally Spies, Martin Mystery, Archie's Weird Mysteries, Kappa Mikey, Hihi Puffy-Amiyumi


learn how to speak english


this isn't the Language Learning thread. learn how to a catalog


I started watching Sonic Prime. I swear to god, they're trying their hardest to make Rouge the Bat the cutest character in the series. Compared to Amy, she's designed to be way more feminine and cute. Out of the three versions of her, it's been a home run each time. Amy's cute as well, but it's obvious they're going in a different "art" direction for her character. I'm was never really attracted to her in the games. I'm just pointing out that they're trying extra hard in this show. It's working.


Any wizzies tried animating before? I've been messing around, plan on releasing a part everyday. A bit of a delay with part 3 though since the program crashed losing progress.

Let me know what you think….


I used to do stop motion animation when I was a kid, but haven't had the space to build a stage in my adulthood.
Now I am a full time RVer so it's pretty out of the question.

If I was to try and take up animating again I would have to do it digitally.

Justice league gods and monsters

Was pretty good for a elswere story, even if it felt like they changed things just to change them.
Though it makes me crave the orginals just behaving like themselves.
So might watch another more mainline justice league movie later. There are so many I haven't gotten around to yet so I have a lot to choose from.


Yeah Bruce Timm did too much weird stuff, using the same DCAU designs, when everyone just wanted more DCAU. Now Kevin Conroy is dead.

Also the opening scene was a weird scifi version of rape


amazing digital circus is cool I enjoyed the pilot. I love hand drawn animation too and stop motion
