That's a good question, actually.

Vlad the Impaler, but a kid-friendly version where he keeps tearing holes in random shit like walls and fences and peoples clothes.

I want to see this done in a show with an all anthro animals cast solely to see this little hellion in action.
I'd watch a cartoon where they skip Poe and just use the story from Fort Independence.
That story is basically about drinking another man's booze, right? Surprised it doesn't get used in more frat rituals.
No, I'm pretty sure the story is just about burying someone alive in your basement.
It's basically the same story, just real.

Master of Disguse was a shit movie but at least it did something original
well it's about numerious injuries and insults the narrator feels Fortunado has done to him (without any real proof to the reader that these things ever happened), and was allegedly inspired by the legend at Fort Independence where two soldiers were in a duel and one was killed. The dead man was well liked by the soldiers, so the living man was taken into the foundations and bricked up into a wall.
No it isn't. He smothered the guy first and then buried the body under his parlor. Very different.

David Bowie voiced a character in Atlantis Squarepantis. It's a terrible episode, mostly because it's a musical but the songs are unilaterally wretched - and it's even more obvious because David Bowie's character, rather conspicuously, doesn't sing anything, despite being played by one of the most famous musicians in history.

You know about this show? I'm aware it's not the only fairy tale series, but I thought it might interest you.
But which Poe story isn't?
A lot of shows do this with technology. Like the mains defeat a villain with a growth serum or a time machine or something and never think to store/reverse-engineer the thing in case they need it later.

Not /co/, but Fringe is one of the only shows I can think of where Freak of the Week tech gets used by the protags later on.
Yeah but they did it infinitely better.

The legend that purportedly inspired Poe is not entirely accurate. The duel did in fact take place, but the victor, Lieutenant Drane, was not murdered by the fort's soldiers but continued in his military career and was later promoted to the rank of captain. After the Second World War, Lieutenant Massie's remains were moved to the cemetery at Fort Devens in Ayer, Massachusetts.

I heard a thing about Steven Universe, that they couldn't get Estelle to sing for a while because paying her to act was separate from paying her to sing, so they could afford her rather low acting rate, but couldn't afford her singing rate.

>it's a camping episode
I cry for the fact I never been. I hate being an inner city poor kid.
I should rewatch Gaim

Let me tell you, that shit makes camping look WAY more fun than it really is.

Like don't get me wrong, camping can be a good time, but most of the time it's just you being really cold all the time.
If you hate bugs and mud, it's fucking shit
Shit, thanks for reminding me to do the same.
Even if it a bad experience, at least I experience, but now I never will.

Also helps that you had Michael Gambon being a huge dick, a flying sleigh led by a shark, and a nice song.

Probably just has to do with deadlines.

You've got to make so many episodes per seasons. You're not writing the Sopranos, after all, most kids aren't going to care, they'll eat whatever merchandise the network throws at them. So you pull from the same stock plots as everyone else. Sometimes that means just copying the plot of old public domain stories and filling in the character names Mad Libs style.

I liked Archers version of it. Ending was as expected but still enjoyable.
Holy fuck, I've heard that song so many times in pop culture, and I've never known what it was called.

Thanks for that
Well, it's not really /co/-related, but an episode of it followed that trope to a T

Fuck off, there's no way that was the first time for something as common as that.
That always makes no sense
To be fair, Jotaro is just a high school student, and his interests are solely in Marine Biology.
I assume it's done so that
A. The audience knows who the hero and who the villains are (Imagine a regular viewer turning in to find completely new characters bickering about a completely new plot)
B. To save time and money (It's easier to put Peter Griffin in a stupid hat and vest than make a new model that might never show up again)
and C. It's not ACTUALLY how the people look, it's just how the character's own imagination interprets them looking (I.E. The Simpson's version of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn looking like Nelson and Bart because they saw themselves in those roles)
There are exceptions to all these rules but eh.
It makes perfect sense. The characters in the flashbacks are ancestors of both Peter's mother and father.
Peter is a result of inbreeding.
Would this even surprise you?
What, you expect the cops to immediately believe a fantastical claim made by a kid now?
If I remember correctly, standard police procedure (In the United States at least) is to investigate any claim, no matter how fantastical.

A police officer isn't going to investigate a claim made by a child about an evil monster or some bullshit. They'll probably just call their parents at that point since it's not really a claim worth investigating.
The Timmverse DC cartoons did this at least three times.

This is so overdone, even the episodes taking the piss out of this overdone plot have become overdone.
What is the deal with this show? It gets posted so many places you'd swear it was by Gainax.
It's overdone, but at least it's one of the tropes that make some sort of logical sense.

I've always wondered, why is lightning a power given to more than a few black characters?
>character has premonition of bad event in the future
>them trying to prevent it makes it happen
Examples? My boner is excited.

It started because networks wanted Black Lightning in TV shows but no one could figure out who owned the rights, so you had a couple of "totally not Black Lightnings" crop up. After that, it just became a thing.
Hey, wanna come to Washington?

By complaining about the voice, I assume you mean the way they hear their thoughts as opposed to the body's voice.

No, the body somehow has the fucking voice of the person now in control.
Should just let __ have it if it doesn't matter.
