Why are cartoons so nice now? What happened to violent cartoons where the main characters were outsiders or generally not overly nice, popular people and edgy stuff sometime happened. Did Adventure Time ruin cartoons forever?
One of the main plot points of early Adventure Time was that Ice King was a sad, lonely, pathetic old man who just wanted some company but Finn and Jake didn't care enough to help him out so they just beat the shit out of him anytime he was annoying. It wasn't as nice as you thought OP.
And having your main character(s) be assholes is generally a poor idea because it begs the question of why all their friends will inevitably hang out with them all the time even with them being such a dick.
In EEnE it worked because no one liked the Edds and they only hung out with each other, but even then only Eddy was an actual asshole.
But TTG isn't nice at all, and came way after the trend.
And it wasn't AT, either, since that show can be "mean-spirited" (to borrow some of Mr. Enter's phrasing) too.
We all know what show started the cutesy, friendly trend, and we can't talk about it here.
>We all know what show started the cutesy, friendly trend, and we can't talk about it here.
And yet, the same people who use(d) to write the grimdark, war-centric fics were the first one to miss the show's Comfy Age. As it ever is. As if that wasn't just the nostalgia speaking.
because now when you make cartoons like that, millenial hipster people and SJW tumblrtard said this is shit or tacky because "edgy" and "mean-spirited".
they loves only noodle arms gentle smile faced happy characters with colours, butterflies, friendship songs and crappy loves stories, because according to them this is "creative".
happiness addict hating every adult shows who have borderline or violent stuff.
cartoons can get away with more shit now than they could've 20 years ago
get your shit together OP
also, bait thread
Mordo and Rigby are kind of assholes but that's part of the charm.
But Finn and Jake are generally goo dudes through and through, barring some specific moments and all. They almost always try to be good.
Cartoon Network died long ago - in 2006.
>Shows such as Cow and Chicken, Time Squad, Looney Tunes were removed.
>Jim Samples went senile.
>CN aired the Re-animated movie.
>Saved by the Bell ran on Adult swim for April Fools'.
>Commercials with terrible characters like Fred Fred Burger and Cheese were spammed to appeal to middle schoolers.
>Inuyasha, Teen titans, Justice league unlimited, and others ended, severing all ties with the early 00s.
>CN really pushed that Ben 10 shit, even though nobody liked it.
>Adult Swim stopped the chill Japan bumpers and replaced them with clips of their characters doing wacky/lolrandom things.
They're dead and never coming back. Their shows will never have the charm of the old days.
also they completly lost every links with hanna-barbera. ( well Ed,Edd'n Eddy and Courage were different but sometimes have references, easter eggs and the same kind of slapstick stuff )
when the 2005 wave came, this was full of flash weebshit hybrids and unfunny shit like the monkey show with his butt.
the artists on flapjack went on to make the shows weve got now.
flapjack was about a happy carefree kid in a totally fucked world and the concept continued with the artist's shows
"Only Eddy was an actual asshole" EXCUSE ME!? Did you even fucking watch Ed, Edd n Eddy??? Double Dee and Ed have also done some pretty asshole stuff too.
In Sorry Wrong Ed, Double Dee ignored Eddy's pain and misery
Double Dee has also accidentally gotten Eddy framed for impersonating a principal and he didn't correct the mistake.
Ed has also done asshole stuff, but I can't think of any examples off the top of my head
I don't know Man. Finn's voice even sounds like everything he is saying is forced and quite far from genuine. Any episode I've seen I've felt bad for the bad guys. I remember something along the lines of hem just meeting something and fin starts giving them shit. Then says "Bros roast each other, it means we're friends" or something to that effect. I fucking hate him.
>yfw you grow up and realize the Eds were the villains of the show
Fucking finally. You could only drag out "uh oh, he rad away and put up ANOTHER BARRIER THAT'S EVEN STRONGER THAN THE LAST ONE" so many times. Preferably zero.
So how did it end? I'm assuming they finally killed the fucker and lived happily ever after?
The joke is that hating the Eds is what keeps the kids together. Sara, Kevin, Johnny, and Rolf to some extent, are all have trouble getting along when left to their own devices for too long. That's why Johnny had to take over as the town scapegoat at the end of the movie when they decided to like the Eds.
The Eds were just kids trying to get some jawbreakers. There were a lot of episodes where their "scams" were legitimate businesses that Kevin or the Kankers fucked over for no reason - the river cruise being the most prominent one I can remember.
I mean as far as "scams" go most of their shit was harmless. Most of it.
They came close to beating him, so he said "fuck it, we've been doing this for 200 episodes, we might as well just keep going" and made a wish that they'd be sucked into the jewel and forced to fight forever. As it turned out, pulling his enemy's soul into a wish-granting device was a bad idea, since they figured out that they just needed to wish for the jewel to disappear with his soul still inside.
Then she stayed in the past, because why not.
