Some of you may remember this pilot:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGM2NghCVJ8
Originally the show was going to be called Lakewood Plaza Turbo, however the title has at this point been changed to Ok K.O.!. I have a friend on the crew and can confirm that it is in production, and will likely air during 2016 or early-mid 2017. It has an unusually long schedule because, interestingly enough, Cartoon Network is having a video game developed simultaneously at, from what I understand, an attempt to establish a multi-media platform somewhat akin to Pokemon. Something alot of people were getting excited about over the pilot was the fact that Stephanie Nadolny, the English voice of kid Goku, was going to voice the protagonist. However I talked to my friend about 2 weeks ago and he said that she didn't show up for a recording session and they can't get into contact with her or her agent, so the guy in charge wants to recast her. That's all the info I have. Discuss at your leisure.
>>
check my 3
>>
>>78655904
Thats all very interesting, but my main gripe is still the story. I mean from what it sounds like, this show will likely be an episodic mix of hijinks and slapstick. Thats fine and all, but I just really dont see it going anywhere.
>>
I for one welcome our new Okko overlords.
>>
>>78656080
I can love episodic hijinx. There's plenty of great shows like that. My issue is so many of the jokes were just references. Even if the manager being based off Mike Haggar made me smile, I still can't see it living a long life off of just "Hey, we're making fun of DBZ, get it?"
>>
it was obvious it was in the works if you were paying any attention to ian's tumblr and twitter

shitty new name though
>>
>Cartoon Network is having a video game developed simultaneously at, from what I understand, an attempt to establish a multi-media platform somewhat akin to Pokemon
that's fucking awesome

And Ian's heading this thing? That's awesome

Have any clue as to what kind of game?
>>
>>78656223
Probably a beat-em-up.
>>
>>78656265
>not a fighting game

of all the things to turn into a fucking "multi media platform", they didnt go with the one that could easily get longevity and ongoing cashflow through extra characters per season ala killer instinct or new street fighter that ties even more into the theme of the show?

Based on the pilot it was an ok premise. I really don't think they should invest so much on a show that could just potentially bomb.

At least when companies do this, the property has something, be it a movie or product, that proved some positive interest.

>>78656080
It's another "slacker comedy". While there was a period, not long ago at all, where that was the dominating genre on CN and Nickolodean - it's a genre thats quickly dying now.
>>
>>78656400
Judging by the name change and OP's info I think it's safe to say it's been retooled a bit.

There's even been an art shift going off Ian's tumblr.
>>
>>78655904
Honestly, I think setting it in a plaza will be it's biggest downfall.
I just don't care. Theres a lot here I could like, but I just don't care about messed up signs or dwindling customer problems. It feels a lot like "Thats whats hot right now! Just look at Regular and Adventure Time! Mundane is the new surreal!"

I'm over it
>>
>the new name is OK K.O.!
Damn, that's some Ben 10 level brand naming right there. They're going all in.
>>
>>78656491
Given that it's being changed up a bunch I doubt the plaza will have many plots
>>
>>78656080
I think that it could have an ongoing story, just maybe a more comedic one than SU.
Personally I'd like to see (in this or maybe in other cartoons) a more Gintama - like approach of dedicating a few episodes for a complete story arcs every once in a while rather than having one ongoing story in the background.

I think they might have changed the designs to get rid of the popsicle stick noses, hopefully it's true.

The last franchise they tried that with was Generator Rex and we saw how that turned out; same thing that happened to The Secret Saturdays come to think of it, which was another property they tried that with.
>>
>>78656821
Dude the Rex game came out like two years after it started airing, just like all the merch what the fuck are you talking about

Indeed, this situation reminds me of Cubix.

I really hope they've made some improvements. The pilot was downright mediocre. I feel like anyone who supported it based on that pilot alone was just being nice to Ian.

>>78657134
You ever pause at the title cards, he is probably the most consistent guy on there. He's also the main supervising director since pilot up until June. Think of Adventure Time without Rebecca.

I don't think you understand what a pilot is.

A pilot is not meant to be a good episode. It's only meant to show off the potential of the show.

Are you retarded? A pilot is meant to be a good episode. It's meant to be a good enough episode that someone will pick up the show based on it.
>>
>>78659981
It's meant to show off the potential of the show, which means spending too much time introducing the characters and forcing in whatever the meat of the show is supposed to be. But you called me a retard so you must be a studio exec or a lead animator.

>>
>>78657134
He was the Supervising Director for every episode in season 1, He became Co-Executive producer during season 2 (I think for the season 2 episodes that lacked a supervising director credit he was pulling double duty), He was a credited storyboard artist for Cheesburger Backpack, Together Breakfast, and Cat Fingers, he did a lot of moments of brief uncredited boards like rebecca does, he's one of the writers of the initial 1-page outlines that get turned by Matt and Ben into the 2-3 page outlines the boarders work with, he composed the Li'l Butler theme with Rebecca, and he's the voice of Mr. Queasy, the cat fingers, and the actor heard in the movie they were watching in Horror Club.

Not at all. The Tak games weren't a tie-in based on a cartoon pilot.

I liked the pilot and I trust Ian to make anything good but if it is really just going to be references (which I hope not) at least we're finally going to be getting some good references instead of that one "reference" episode where people who don't know anything decide to spoof Pokemon or some shit.

No, he doesn't. He had to meet up with the "Steven Universe facts" guy IRL to be convinced that he wasn't an asshole trying to poison the minds of young children. He's one of the good ones, but he's still a part of the progressive stack.

How is it a guy who worked on one of the best cartoons around still emulates hockey anime tropes and cliches?

Some of the weeaboo moments in Steven Universe are just flat-out embarrassing, it comes across like a 15-year old drawing kawaii faces on bad doodles.

I'm still grappling with the fact that people that grew up watching the things I grew up watching are making television shows professionally and mining my childhood for inspiration and parody.

It's the most surreal fucking thing to see a legit unambiguous reference to Sailor Moon or DBZ in a children's cartoon or a similarity to anime in general beyond a hacky attempt to simulate the art style.

But I will say, even for a slap stickish show like this the dojo scene kinda showed of some action choreography, even if it was silly.
