What are some things from your robot childhood that got completely ruined overtime? For me it's cartoons.

It's actually true.. the 60s, 70s and 80s had shit cartoons. The 90s were great for the most part, the early 00s were great. But I feel during the late 00s they all went to shit.

The only cartoons I still like from now are Regular Show and (sometimes) Adventure Time.
>>
>>26070984

The only contenders for greatest decade for cartoons other than 90s and early 00s was whenever the original Looney Tunes and Tom&Jerry came out. Was it the 50s? Can''t remember.. they were both god-tier shows.

Mid to late 2000's was actually kind of a crappy time for cartoons. They have come back quite a bit since then.
The mid 2000's is when they started pushing all of that live-action shit, so overall there weren't a lot of good cartoons produced then.

>>26071682
AT aired in 2010, around the same time all the current good cartoons started.

To be fair, there are some pretty damn good cartoons out right now - but they're targeted at adults. Shows like Adventure Time, Archer, Steven Universe, Futurama, Bob's Burgers - these are damn good shows that people seem to take for granted because they're not specifically aimed at little kids anymore. But the great thing about most of these shows (maybe excluding Archer) is that they're still quite accessible to many different audiences, which is part of what makes them so enjoyable. You have to be a good writer to write for so many different demographics. In essence, I think they're picking up where the Simpsons left off.
>>
>>26070876

I know how /r9k/ likely feels about Steven Universe but you have to give it credit for having a mythos/backstory and having enough faith in its viewers to follow bread-crumbs and put things together without just doing a straight exposition dump.

CN went to shit when they put that fat white guy and black girl as the hosts for CCF. When the logo went from "Cartoon Network" to "CN".
>>
>>26071840
They were great and there was a lot to enjoy. What preceded it was poorly animated slapstick gross-out 90s cartoons and what followed was barely any cartoons at all and the ones we do have have meme computer animation and tumblr tier plots
>>
>>26071883
Idk, but to me they're shit. Archer is pretty good and Futurama has been out forever so I count that as old shit, but AT is retarded, SU just makes me irrationally angry and Bob's Burgers is better than a handful of sleeping pills after the first 5 minutes.

YTV. It was basically Canada's version of Nickelodeon. It used to have all kinds of great cartoons and anime, and now it basically just airs tween sitcoms, Spongebob and FOP.

Gotta be honest I laughed at this. I could imagine him REEEEEing at the thought of sharing his fairies with the roastie.

For real though the girl is probably a better addition than the baby or the dog. but I haven't seen the show in years.

They have to keep the show fresh for the toner viewers. Do you honestly think they care about the opinion of autistic manchildren? If they want to add a loli to the spa it's okay with me. It's not like I watch fairly odd patents anymore. I watch grown up cartoons for intellectually like rock and morty
>>
>>26072115
>>26072174

Wasn't Invader Zim really expensive to make or something? That and it didn't really appeal to the toy-buying demographic, although if they waited a few years they could've taken the Hot Topic demographic hook, line and sinker like Adventure time did.

Steven Universe gains a plotline about halfway into Season 2, and actually has one of the more fleshed out and interesting universes of any fantasy/fiction TV show I've seen lately. I think they realized very early on that they had an older audience, and capitalized on that.

As for Adventure Time, it's targeted toward adults and children alike. It really reminds me of playing D&D in the creativity and endlessness of its universe.

Those two shows are my two favorites, so I'm glad you brought them up.

Johnny Bravo was definitely made by a robot.
>>
>>26072243
It was an odd show. It was one of those cult classic/love it or hate it kind of thing. It had a darker tone that was not a good fit for the channel, and it's probably why people didn't like it overall.

Fridays were always special when I grew up.

Toonami had movies on fridays and then CCF right afterwards with like 3 hours of all new episodes of shows back-to-back.
Last time I checked, CN had nothing special on friday nights anymore. Just reruns of Teen Titans Go! as usual.

I hope we can at least acknowledge that's a problem with YOU and not the show.

Idk I honestly think the reason people don't like SU is because the fan base is so fucked up you guys act like a show for kids is fucking high literature

I think it's a smart show with a well-constructed universe and some good animation/music.

I do not consider myself a member of the "fanbase" as I don't participate in it outside of watching it.

I sincerely don't understand why the gender/weight of a central character affects your enjoyment of a series. The Gems genders have no affect on the plot. It'd be exactly the fucking same if Pearl was a dude and Steven was svelte.

Wanted to watch this so bad as a kid but the time just never worked out, I think. It was also a later show, so it wasn't like cartoons were my life at that point still, either. I just really wanted to watch the show, man....

I think it aired at 3:30, which was when my school day ended.... I think I only ever caught a few minutes of an end of an episode once.

Good think they have the KND and Samurai Jack reboots coming, right?

Execs don't actually have any understanding of what will make the most money, they just know what will do something more than break even. They will never pump a bunch of money into a reboot of an old show unless they KNOW it'll retain its old viewership, and that's assuming it had really high ratings to begin with.

I like the show but I don't like the agenda pushing they do. I can handle the whole same sex couple thing that is Garnet (one of the main characters), but it really pushes it in your face a lot. It begins to feel less like "this is normal, this is acceptable" and it starts to feel like "LOOK AT US, WE'RE PROGRESSIVE, CHECK OUT OUR SHOW, LOOK LGTBBQ PEOPLE, PLEASE SUPPORT US!"

I mean, hell, there was one episode that was dedicated to some mailman being a creepy fucker and the show basically sitting him down and saying "no no no, bad male, women do not like when you try to interact with them!"

Also, the whole "the leader of the Crystal Gems was a PROUD STRONG FAT INDEPENDANT WOMAN that only died because A MAN came around and swooned her!"
The dialogue is very sappy and cheesy most of the time, too. The songs, while nice, feel out of place most of the time.

A lot of things the show does just rub me the wrong way, and I'm sure a lot of that is because the fanbase is so god-awful. That being said, the show has an intriguing story, interesting and varied characters that are all flawed in one way or another (except Pearl, she's my waifu), the artstyle is generally vibrant and well done (the show suffers a lot with proportions on characters), and the pacing is most of the time very appropriate.

It's a good show. It's not season 4/5 of Adventure Time levels of good, but it definitely stands above most others

Eh, I didn't take that much out of it. First of all, it isn't even "lesbian" because they're androgynous space rocks who coincidentally have "feminine" features. I thought that the whole story was that love and compassion trumps all, with the story behind the garnet fusion origin, etc.
Rose quarts wasn't fat, she was big on scale, and if you look when she is having Steven they give her a bigger belly because it's supposed to look like a pregnancy.
I thought the mailman thing was supposed to be a lesson about how not everyone's gonna love you back.

>rushed LN adaptations are taking over
Why don't they just translate Light Novels and bring them over? It'd be a bit more work than just subtitles but the market is larger by a huge margin, especially if translators manage to balance between a literal translation and one that does whatever it wants.
>>
>>26077064

I'm just saying, I went back and watched Seasons 1-3 and while they do have some terrific episodes, there are episodes that make me uncomfortable. I like the animation of the newer episodes, and I liked the storylines of S4/S5 the most so far all that being said I still like seasons 1-3

I can see how you wouldn't like an episode like Davey (I personally thought it was cute/quirky), and agree that Dream of Love ain't good, and Web Weirdos was whack

Season 6 fucking sucked though, almost every episode was awful. But S7 seems promising. Stakes (the 8 part movie) was wonderful

>>26077093
I can understand that to some extent. I felt it made the characters more human though, especially with episodes like Burning Low (if you've seen that one), or any episode that shows Jake trying to be a dad and he's just a complete fuckup

So that nobody can buy them? Anime and manga sales are dismal in the west and you think people are going to buy LNs in droves?

>>
>>26077155
Published LN translations are a thing, quite a few popular ones are available. Also fan translations of LNs are common too, but since a LN is a lot more wordy than manga is it relies a lot on the translators writing skills (which are almost always terrible)
>>
>>26077184
Fair enough. One of the main reasons I haven't dropped SU is because Connie and Steven are mostly kept at friend level. I may stop if that changes.
>>
>>26077133
>Seasons 6 and 7 have honestly been the best so far
Season 6 is unironically the worst season
This is the season where the writers gave up on trying to make a fun kids show and started trying all sorts of experimental emotional bullshit that ended up going absolutely nowhere
The season that introduces an ancient terror in the form of a penguin that is easily vanquished before the episode reveals that finn used to also be a cosmic being but is now a human, a plot that means so much of nothing that the comic disappears with the father that finn had been trying to find for over 4 seasons
And this is just on a personal note, but the season that recast Jake's brother's VA to be Greg from SU

the only good episode, truly amazing episode, this season was made by someone who had absolutely nothing to do with Adventure time
>>
>>26077184
Stakes was really good, I just wish that they put that kind of effort into solving Finn's problems
>>
>>26077235
I feel you there. I like that it kinda skirts around the "will they won't they" thing with them. I don't want it to outright be stated, but if you watch episodes like Steven's Birthday it's pretty obvious the creators want them to be romantically involved. It was a good episode, just a little heavy-handed with the "Oh Steven, I want to grow old with you!" type stuff.

But I can totally understand/respect the viewpoint of not wanting the characters to have love interests or whatever. Sometimes you just want a show without all the complications of life

It's not even the weebness that's the problem. Most of the people who would read an LN already pirate the shit out of anime and manga. It's cheaper, easier, and faster than waiting for an official (and shitty) English version to come out.
>>
>>26077238
Which episode?

Also, I felt that most of the plot was about as consistent as it had been previously in seasons 1-3, but less subtle. It was still "expose random important plot points" but the old seasons did it by having something in the background or a small part of the episode instead of the entire episode. If you look back though, most of the stuff is foreshadowed, for example orgalord was foreshadowed earlier in the season, and really early in the show, I think on season 2 marceline's dad mentions how Gunter is the most evil being in ooo or something, and the banana man/croak dream episode basically set up the encounter with orgalord.
I thought finn's dad leaving was fitting for the character.
The "cosmic being" thing was set up a season earlier.

Wut? Food chain was by far one of the most subpar episodes. I mean, it was okay, but not what I wanted.

>Basically I really like how they became less subtle with the story arcs.
This is basically taking all of the magic and intrigue out of Adventure Time
we only got hints as to the true fucked up nature of the world and where everything came from. I'm not saying plot and exposition are bad, but in a kids show, subtly showing things is always better than just outright transforming the show into something more "mature"

> most of the stuff is foreshadowed
They actually didn't plan to put in any of the shit THAT far back, especially not to season 2.
The Banaman/croak dream was really only referenced in that episode and establishing that Finn had past lives doesn't mean that they introduced that concept solely so they could introduce the idea of Finn being a cosmic entity
Finns dad leaving was fitting for the character, but honestly just getting rid of him completely out of nowhere is just lazy writing

>I think in the most recent episode the lich's hand was copied all over the multiverse, so that's an interesting plot point
That could be come a plot point, but we saw that once it was severed from Jake lich, it didn't really do anything, so it probably won't lead to anything

Food Chain

It was more true to AT's origins than any other episode that season
Water park prank is just an example of the kind of shit episodes that Adventure Time writers started letting fly

>Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law (Adult Swim)
>Futurama (Adult Swim)
>Trigun (Adult Swim)

It was such a diverse channel with so many great shows. Now, CN shows about 6-7 of the same shows over and over each day and you're lucky if two are good.

I dunno what happened to TV.

Fucking love EEnE. Definitely one of the best cartoons ever.

What's so fun about it in my opinion is that they didn't need any magical shit or superpowers to make the show fun. They were just kids being kids. It was great to watch.
I had to get used to the squiggly outlines animation, but now I think it was a great choice of style.
>>
>>26078056

2003 was definitely god tier for CN.

I think what happened is that the internet took over cable's lunch. Things like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, YouTube all took viewers away. So now all CN shows is Teen Titans Go. And the occasional RS, AT and SU.

I think 2003 was the biggest year for cable subscriptions. So in turn networks showed better content.

I dont know whether to feel bad or not, though.. the reason I dont have cable now is because it's too damn expensive. I do like the 24/7 channel model though. But not enough to pay so much for it.

85%+ of what you posted were great shows. I used to watch Adult Swim when it first started in 2001 when I was 9-10 and I remember Home Movies, Brak Show, Space Ghost Coast to Coast, ATHF, Sealab 2021.

Man those were the fucking days, I'd stay up til 1am watching all that every night on school nights. My parents were going through a rough divorce at the time so I could stay up as late as I wanted and watch what I wanted. Muh feels.

With all this nostalgia, it's easy to get caught up in the emotions you went through as a kid getting to watch all of your favorite cartoon shows and now seeing them bastardized by tv execs who gives no fucks about quality and only seeks to maximize profits.

What I actually wonder is how do the voice actors feel about the current state of cartoons? Do you think they're happy with the content being put out?

God I remember watching toonami as a kid and getting into anime through DBZ, GitS, Cowboy Bebop and Big O back in the early 2000s

>Drake Bell has filed for bankruptcy, according to court documents obtained by E! News. The former Nickelodeon star requested Chapter 7 in May 2013. According to the filing, the Drake & Josh actor owns $1.575 million in real estate and $10,500 in personal property, but has debts of around $2.166 million.

so rip that guy I guess. Last I heard of him he was trying to stir shit up with Justin Bieber, but Justin Bieber apparently got back at him by showing up to one of Drake Bell's appearances and stealing all of the guy's attention.

I guess I'm the only seniorfag, that still thinks cartoon network was a cancer that ruined cartoons, kids social lives, and animation quality as a whole. Sure they had some gems over the years, but it wasn't worth the cost.

Before CN, you had a solid 2 hours during weekday afternoons, and weekend mornings. Other than vidya there was no other reason to not be outside. Even vidya at the time forced you out, because online multiplayer, wasn't really a thing. You had to go to a buddies house or an arcade if you wanted to play with him.

Before CN, animation quality was steadily getting better and better. Then CN started a trend of relatively quickly and cheaply produced, highly stylized shows. There were a lot of pro/cons with this, but over all it sped up the process and eventually turned into a quantity over quality situation. It had gotten a little better, now, but for a while it was horrible.

>NGE is the FnaF of anime. Its really mediocre and went on longer than it should

I agree with this 100%, but a part of me doesn't want to since Mangle, an animatronic introduced in the second game, is my husbando. I feel like ghe second game was what showed that the creator of the game has no idea why his game is even appealing cause of the introduction of balloon boy and the puppet. It was no longer a furry game about furry creatures who scare you, thus evoking curious mix of contrasting emotions from its players, if they're furries; balloom boy and the puppet were just shallow jumpscares at worst and took away from the game as they were not the point of the game at best.

No one likes the FNaF fandom though, and that's fine. Mangle's all I care about desu senpai.
>>
>>26088219
Nge sort of sucked, I hated when it tried to be "deep" too. End of evangelion was terrible.

Artists shouldnt try to be deep and thought provoking when they don't know what the fuck they're trying to convey.
