New Mickey short
>Mickey and Minnie didn't dress for the show
Also bit harsh on Pete there.
>third of the filesize
>more than double the resolution
Should be better now
This Pete does tons of stuff, it just so happens that Mickey and Minnie keep turning up whilst he's doing something.
>Steals wishing well coins
>Professional Russian Barynya Dancer
>Police Officer running a flower parade
He gets around.
On the holidays, a used Christmas tree salesman.
And on Christmas Eve, he's the Ghost of Christmas Future.
And on rent day he's th-th-THUH SHERUFF???
>Mickey Mouse has the best cartoon now
>Looney Tunes is shit
My theory is that Mickey has always been more obviously versatile (he's an everyman) whereas when people are writing for the Looney Tunes they get hung up on old staples. This happens with Mickey and the gang too, where a writer might depend way too much on old jokes present in old cartoons (like making an inanimate object not working right), but it's especially bad when it comes to Looney Tunes.
Writers who don't understand comedy think that the anvil or the stick of dynamite or the carrot are the point. They're not the point. Just repeating the "duck season, rabbit season" debate is not comedy. Those things were funny because they surprised audiences and subverted expectations. They followed basic principles of comedy and made those principles fresh using props and objects taken to their extreme. Dropping an anvil on someone's head isn't funny unless you set it up right.
The new Mickey cartoons are great because while they use old Mickey concepts, they don't get hung up on literally repeating old jokes and hoping you'll like it again. We've seen Mickey take himself apart, for example, but we've never seen him jump out of himself like a matryoshka doll. We've seen Minnie smack the hell out of a villain but we've never seen her sock one in the face with her hairbow. These cartoons are continuing very old Mickey traditions but they're also moving forward with them and creating new jokes on the way.
The poor Looney Tunes, meanwhile, get stuck with writers who just don't understand what was so funny about those cartoons in the first place. The Animaniacs and Tiny Toons writers fell into this hole quite a bit too, as fun as those shows were. Space Jam and Looney Tunes Back In Action didn't get the joke either for the most part.
I'm more of a Mickey person myself, but I'm sad too that Bugs is getting fucked.
These shorts just keep getting better and better, goddamn.
Also, does anyone else really like how the voice actors speak the language of whatever country the shorts take place in? It really shows the amount of respect and care they put into these.
>Every short gets a sincere "Where's the English version?" comment
Fucker can Yodel as well.
Wish I could find a video that had yodelling like Minnie did in this, but all I can find are the stereotypical "lol funny singing" versions.
Those shorts tend to end up even better since they rely on very minimal dialog that English speakers won't be expected to recognize. A couple of the lesser shorts just have too much talking.
>Dog character is in a dog show.
Wow it must be some creepy fetish shit
Subverting stuff just can't be done any more, because what was subversive is mainstream and what's subversive to that is "problematic."
So you're stuck in a feedback loop of subversion, where The Simpson's steals jokes from Family Guy gleefully oblivious to the fact Family Guy stole the jokes from The Simpson's first.
Until one side gives up it's never going to get better. Looney Tunes was funny because it took established tropes from much older cartoons (which were mostly physical comedy) and slapped some vaudeville paint on them to make them more self-aware and a bit more cynical.
Everything is self-aware and cynical today so the only subversive thing you can really do is make a cartoon for the sake of making one. Which is what these Mickey shorts are.
The gif looks fine and the difference between 200 kB and 850 kB is fucking nothing in the space year 2016
I could understand if it was some epic 1-minute-long dickbutt joke that would be 80 MB in gif form and 3 as a webm, but for a 16-frame animation loop gif is fine.
>He's unaware of the 'new' Looney Tunes 3D shorts they made using old Mel Blancs audio for Looney Tunes radioshows/cassettes.
I say new, they're actually from 2012.
Going back to its origins actually wouldn't be too bad, maybe WB is cooking up a movie or shorts like Mickey using a similar pseudo 2D system like the Peanuts movie did would be pretty neato.
Some of that stuff you can already see in Daffy's Rhapsody, things like smears or pic related.
>There are people on /co/ right now who do not care about cutest couple
captcha was selecting pics of RVs, you hippie
this minnie is a goddamn qt 3.14159265359
Nearly, but not quite.
>I heard it all in Donald's voice
Speech impediment and all
id say the issue would be to first establish Oswald himself. he needs to become established with a specific personality and traits. he has very little to him. He is like most cartoon characters of his era, and really, isnt much more than Mickey's prototype. stick them together in a Mickey Shorts way, and theyd be too similar. his only exposure is also epic mickey. they need to figure out what to do with him in a way that would be beneficial to him. cant just toss him into the world and hope for the best.
I suppose they could get away with just making him a slightly douchier mickey who dont take no shit, but then you have to figure, ok, how does that mesh with the trio of Donald, Mickey and Donald.
Also, what should he sound like, whats his life like, etc
though a cameo in mickey shorts wouldnt hurt
It might be interesting to play his epic mickey persona in a softer and more flattering light.
Like he's Mickey's sterner somewhat angrier older brother so have him TRY to play as a voice of reason or a straight man except he goes twice as crazy when shit goes down or something like that.
So like if the main trio got into shit and Oswald got dragged into it it'd probably be a split between Mickey + Goofy and then Oswald + Donald. Goofy and Donald are at either ends of a spectrum while Mickey and Oswald are more moderate but lean towards either extreme.
Finally someone else gets it. Epic Mickey is basically one guy's fanfic in video game format. A guy who based Oswald's personality entirely around this extremely meta concept and even went so far as deciding that Oswald's endgame is being with the girl cat instead of the girl rabbit and having four hundred and something kids. A guy who decided that oh, Mickey and Oswald are brothers.
Whenever people complain about Oswald not being in these shorts or in his own shorts, they always talk about this character from the perspective of one very short video game series. Nobody talks about Oswald in the context of his own cartoons. What was his personality? Who is he when we're not talking about meta big-brother bullshit which is not established in his own universe? Would anybody have cared about Oswald if not for Epic Mickey angst?
Nobody talks about his personality because it was cookie cutter/copypasta for the era of cartoon he was in. There was nothing unique about it and there was nothing to remember about it.
People tend to bring up Oswald from the context of epic mickey because that's how he was established in the minds of audiences today, he was given a personality specifically to set him apart from Mickey and for many people the image stuck.
So strictly speaking (excluding Japan) no, people wouldn't have cared if not for Epic Mickey, however as dubious of quality as that game was
(it was shit)it still put Oswald on the map so to speak, to the point that he's well acknowledged at Disney theme parks.
And while I'm not necessarily complaining about him not being in the new cartoons since he isn't a part of the original cannon, adding him would make an interesting addition and further push the idea of these shorts truly being a new iteration of Mickey Mouse and friends, especially if he was established as an older brother of Mickey.
Course that's just my tl;dr opinion.
They've been drawing him.
Pete going after Minnie.
>Not chilling with Russian Peg
I feel like it had TLTS had a perfect artstyle, but never really went for classic looney tune stuff outside of the beach episode, so it came off as a bit boring, imo. A return to form using that artstyle would be a 10/10 show.
>A bit harsh on Pete
>Supposed professional actor broke his own show just to try to smooch with the audience
Dude, there are no-nos in performance arts and that's one of them.
Russian or American, you don't start harassing the audience.
I'd kill for an album of the songs from these shorts. A lot of these are amazing, it would be a shame to never get a chance to listen to the whole songs. I want to hear the rest of the bollywood song so bad:
LIES unless he suddenly found himself in debt to deep a hobo would be considered a king she wouldn't drop him and it's Disney only way out of marriage is DEATH.
The amount of colors isn't everything.
It's all about how you use them.
.gif has a more limited color palette, yes, which is actually good, the one thing that all professional artists agree on is that you need to have a limited well thought out color palette.
.webm has far more colors, yes, but it has not idea how to use them so every thing becomes a poorly thought out chaotic mess.
Limitations breed creativity and quality.
>it has not idea how to use them
There's literally anything gif is better than webm.
If you want to use a limited number of colours in a webm you can make a pixel-perfect copy of the gif.
>There's literally anything gif is better than webm.
Uses less cpu (if you have several webms running at the same time on a page, it can really kill a browser. With gif not as much)
Gifs can be lossless with less-than-256 color pixel art. Webm is always lossy.
Those are it.
Anybody else kinda underwhelmed by this one? I don't know, it wasn't bad, but usually these are a lot funnier and more fluid. This felt a little stiff and lifeless in terms of animation, and the story wasn't much either.
Holy shit that's the first time I could actually say I've legitimately loved a Tweety Bird cartoon.
The best part is that the old audio wasn't the greatest aspect of these shorts, the animation was fluid, funny, and they didn't copy old jokes to a T, they mixed them up enough for the physical humor to be fun.
I'm with you there, some of them sound fantastic but are just so short that I can't help but wonder how the full version would sound. That Bollywood one is a good example. It's amazing how much effort they put into these 4 minute shorts that are really just on Youtube for free.
IT was good. Bottle Shock and Al Rojo Vivo are probably my two favorite shorts. Bottle Shock has my favorite gag. That fucking rape piano.
Has Daffy ever won on this level before?
>the singing whale
Holy crap, I didn't think anyone even remembered that short!
The premise and resolution are much much blander than i have come to expect from this series.
However, the visuals were fucking excellent. Plus I always like hearing them talk in other languages.
Thankyou, that's exactly what I've been thinking for ages.
They don't even put in the legwork of making context that fits these old gags most of the time anymore. It's just randomly shouting "X season, Y Season!" and then bugs wins, and it's just awful.
Excuse you? That's not The Boiler Room
