Does anyone else think it's funny that the show that birthed all of the "tumblr cartoons" today is the most horrible, disgusting thing ever?
What the fuck is wrong with Flapjack?

I loved Flapjack I thought it was a great show. Granted I am a sucker for sea/maritime setting. Its somewhat dark humor really appealed to me.
When you say disgusting you mean it as in an it's a horrible show or it's gross? I've often heard from my friends that they thought the show to be creepy.
Not OP the show is great and still very much disgusting. Apart from Flapjack most of the characters were ugly looking and disfigured which really did fit the atmosphere and tone of the show. It's a great kids show with and ugly and dirty setting.
Also the fact that Capt. Knuckles basically had only a torso and head.
Also his nose was probably blownoff
Knuckles was such a cool character, he was a drunk, lazy guy who always got himself into trouble just because Flap wanted to be an adventurer, he was the unlikable jerk character done right
What happened on the last episode anyway? Did this show even got finished?
Flapjack was great. Shame on the few of you who are trying to drag it into your criticism proxy war. Flapjack is pure.
would you a flapjack? Id a flapjack.
Wasn't there an episode that showed half the planet was covered in nothing but land and the other half nothing but water? Haven't watched this in a really long time but I believe I remember that.
It's so weird seeing so many currently-popular stylistic touches (the little things that basically made up the Adventure Time style that many artists have copied) used in a way that's so full of old experimental glee and energy in Flapjack. And then it has so many other little oddball touches like the mixed-media elements, so you're never quite sure what to expect from it. All-around fun cartoon.
Same! It came out of nowhere and remains one of my favorite moments in the entire show. Although my favorite episode has to be "The West"
True. I guess it wouldn't matter if tumblr fags never pick it up, then it wouldn't matter if it's a tumblr cartoon. I don't think Tumblr would ever be super interested in it like with other shit.
That's what a tumblr cartoon is. Doesn't really mean much, just that some people would get butthurt about tumblr people enjoying the show.
It's just funny to think that so many tumblr cartoons came from a show that wouldn't get as much attention as future cartoons.
Flapjack was a masterpiece
it was mature in a way that wasn't just lowbrow violent or suggestive
it had wit and a distinct sense of dark humour
the visual style followed perfectly in line with that tone often being ornate even grotesque
Chowder and Flapjack definitely feel like the early ones at the party for the current climate of cartoons. I wish I was able to better articulate why they have that impression, though.
At least with Flapjack you can point to a lot of major players in the industry who worked on the show (Ward, Hirsch, Quintel, I guess Van Orman?)
Chowder and Flapjack were easily the best CN had going during that time.
Now it's the same crap over and over. Lesbian Space Opera with Kid Jack Black and Nonsensical Teenage Superhero Adventures.
