I know this will most likely not happen but I would really like to see S.H Figuarts or Figma figures of Tom & Jerry, it would be really cool putting them in different poses and such along with other characters.
>>5395588 If you can sit there with a straight face and tell me that Johnny Test was worse than something like Magilla Gorilla, we have nothing more to discuss. Johnny Test is terrible, but the animation quality at the very least is superior to even the best Hanna-Barbera cartoon
>>5395594 Literally all of those are from the late 80's or early 90's, which is when I said the ghetto ended and the renaissance began. I don't know why you are giving me evidence that supports what I said and then calling me wrong.
>>5395697 >the period from '52 to the late '80s/early '90s
If I say "The class goes from 3 o'clock to 4 o'clock" that means that the class ends at 4 o'clock and is no longer in session, just as here it's clear that the meaning is that the period ended in the late 80s/early 90s.
Many people say the premier of The Simpsons was the end. Some count "The Rescuers" in 1990 as the end, as it was the first feature length animation made without cameras. While others say 'one good cartoon doesn't end an era' and stretch it out a few years later to where some of those started airing concurrently and where the saturday morning cartoons officially died.
>>5395719 Bruce Timm's opinion is that a sea change was when Disney started doing Saturday morning cartoons.disney refused to do them for years since they didn't think they could manage a budget for decent quality animation on a tv show, and stayed out. When they finally entered the market is when Warner and other companies started putting massive effort into their network animation.
General comment on the secondary topic: as someone who grew up in the latter days of the Dark Ages, I actually do still have fond memories of the shitty H-B era. Yeah, most were total garbage, but I still watched the fuck out of them and would have killed for good toys of them (especially mo'fukkin Thundarr the Barbarian and "Space Stars," the 80s revamp of Space Ghost and The Hurculoids, plus new team Teen Force...first cartoon crossover series since Laff-A-Lympics).
...and, having lived through it as a kid and teenager, I agree with Bruce Timm, the REAL tipping point where I noticed things started getting better WAS when Disney entered the fray and started forcing the other animation houses by example to step up their games.
Yeah, I bash on newer shit like Johnny Test and Teen Titans GO!, and I will publicly deny that they have ANY improvements over the old HB and Ruby-Spears stuff, but there is technical improvements...but they aren't my toons. They're the new kids' toons, and THEY will be defending THEM to THEIR kids. Let 'em have 'em, it's their time, we got our shitty old toons already to watch, we got our adult swim and Toonami, we haven't been forgotten.
Back on the ACTAL topic before this turns into /co/ anymore, Toynami put out a line of pretty good HB figures in the early 2000s...I got an SDCC exclusive of the aforementioned Thundarr with a glow-in-the-dark Sunsword a few years ago. I don't know what the aftermarket prices are, but it's worth checking out.
>>5395624 Sleeping beauty came out in '59.... I also think Wacky races was Stella and the Flinstones set a tone for being able to create a 'family' comedy out of a cartoon. Where would we be without the amazing scoobydoo as well?
