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?

It may have influenced the style, but Flapjack is far from a Tumblr cartoon

What?
>>
>>78773404
There is no such thing a "Tumblr cartoon", just shows that happen to be generally liked by people on Tumblr.
>>
>>78773395
It was okay
>>
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.
>>
>>78772986
Flapjack was a unique artstyle at the time. Plus it combined the cool ocean effect and the stop motion scenes. The shows that stemmed from it just ripped off the artstyle.
>>
>>78773477
Ah, well I was parroting OP. I honestly don't care really. In fact I didn't even know Tumblr was a thing when Flapjack was airing. Awesome though
>>
>>78773459
>>78773404
I think he's talking about how the creators of Adventure Time, Regular Show, and Gravity Falls all started out in Flapjack.
>>
>>78773404
It's where almost all of the creators came from. If they didn't work on FJ, they worked on shows created by people who worked on FJ.
>>
>>78773495
The idea of an entire community being on a big wooden harbor out at sea, not even attached to anything, was always really unnerving to me.
>>
>>78773548
Jonnhy Bravo also had the creator of Family Guy working on it and we don't call it "the father of adult family comedies"
>>
>>78773548
Then Steven Universe, WBB, and Bee+Puppy-cat spawned from the staff of those.
>>
>>78773395
I liked it
>>
>>78773548
>>78773561
If that's what OP meant then that's fine. Gotta start somewhere. And it was a good show.

>>78773577
At any moment they could get fucked over by a wave or sea monster
>>
>>78773586
Because the Simpsons already existed at that point.
>>
>>78773495
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
>>
>>78774034
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?
>>
>>78773801
I wonder where that kid is now.
>>
I hope that Flapjack/Chowder never get a shitty reboot.
>>
>>78774123
The originals were good enough to not justify a reboot.

Wasn't this inspired by Sponge Bob that was in turn inspired by Ren and Stimpy?

So we may as well blame John K. for creating the tumblr toons.
>>
what the hell is a tumblr cartoon?
>>
>>78776546
And John K was basing Ren and Stimpy off of old 40s Looney Tunes...

Flapjack was great. Shame on the few of you who are trying to drag it into your criticism proxy war. Flapjack is pure.

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.

No it's proven Steven Universe.
>>
>>78776982
NO
>>
>>78775544
He's not wrong about how some people on /co/ would react, though.
>>
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.
>>
>>78778398
reminds me of courage the cowardly dog a little bit, I guess mostly the different funky animation styles

Flapjack was pretty annoying at times, but I just winced and accepted it was a satire of similar characters. His names always made me hungry.
>>
>>78774034
this right here is one of the hardest laughs any cartoon has given me.
>>
>>78778162
Yeah, he is.
>>
This show always reminded me of "The Mariner's Revenge Song" by the Decemberists, mostly because they lived in a whale and K'nuckles' fingers were splinters.
>>
>>78776642
I blame Dave & Max Fleischer for making a female protagonist in animation in the first place.
>>
>>78773801
Why did they turn the asian siblings black?
>>
>>78779171
Oh please. /co/ would call Flapjack a Tumblr cartoon if it came out today as much as they called it lolsorandum when it came out.
>>
>>78779415
>lolsorandum
Except that FJ actually does random, stupid humor pretty well in contrast to so many other cartoons that try to push stupid humor WAY too far.
>>
>>78779066
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"
>>
>>78779529
Yes, but many posters back in the day said it was lolsorandum and many of those same posters would call it a Tumblr cartoon if it came out today.
>>
>>78779799
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.
>>
>>78780564
see
>>78773477
>>
>>78773477
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
>>
>>78781077
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?)

The only episode I liked is where they made of michael jackson.
>>
>>78774083
I think it was that they are so much candy they turned real. K'nuckles was played by Van Orman and Flapjack was played by his kid
>>
>>78772986
Nothing noteworthy about it.

I blame Gertie the dinosaur for moving

It was shit. A show you'd have to wait to be over for another show to come on.
>>

>not 'beauteous'

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.
