This fucking show.

You can say whatever you want about how formulaic Regular Show is, how tumblr oriented Adventure Time got, how fat acceptance Steven Universe is, whatever you have to say about Gumball or Clarence, but you can't say that this shit is funny or good. I've tried watching this shit a lot and I can't laugh and it's just so fucking annoying. I don't know how kids watching this shit show will grow up to be normal citizens.

I've been mentally deteriorating for the past few months and I've started to like this show, among other things.

It's funny sometimes. It's got that Adventure Time thing where it's really inconsistent both visually and writing-wise depending on who's boarding the episode, but the good stuff is good. S1 is pretty shit, though.

This is the best show on CN, dude. I love the casual surrealism to it and how much it revels in the fact that its a cartoon. Also tranny Mad Max is cool.

I don't hate the show, but it's pretty dull for the most part.

The wrestling episode was 10/10, though.

it feels like it tries to hard to be surreal and random that it doesn't feel natural.

it's like when marketing teams look at what the youth likes and come up with a character that's edgy because they think it will resonate with everyone, it's just a try hard move that you feel that there was no true passion behind it's creation

I was in the ICU and one of the only channels I got was CN and they were having an Uncle Grandpa marathon. First and only time i watched this show.

Oddly enough, /co/ is not one person, nor is it a hivemind, and therefore people that do not like cartoons that are "just trying to be a dumb cartoon" are going to complain about Uncle Grandpa in the same way someone that doesn't like another type of show will complain about that.

Ate copious amounts of chocolate. I believe the vomiting was induced by the vet.

That's because it's a show for CHILDREN.

I found it kind of funny, a good break from CN's other more plot-focused shows and still has at least some kind of quality to it, easily a 5-7/10 show. Not something to watch in bulk though.
>>
>>77584134
its meant for 30 year olds like regular show is to.
>>
>>77587543
Maybe you didn't understand

If you're expecting something good out of a show called "Uncle Grandpa", get ready to be disappointed when all it is is a dumb cartoon

That being said, if you go into Uncle Grandpa expecting it to be bad, you'll probably get caught off-guard when a decent episode shows

I know it's difficult to convey emotion through text alone but holy shit I didn't think I needed to explain it to you like you're missing half your brain

>>77584134
UG does it's own thing. Mad respect.

Also any episode by David Gemmill is usually 10/10

They don't.
>>

the UG episode separated the fillerfags from the men

I like UG. It's closer to Tex Avery Screwy Squirrel shorts than anything currently airing. Even though I think the animation quality is lacking, or really just kind of plain, the actual weirdness of everything that goes on is something that I haven't seen in cartoons in a long time.

I think a lot of you guys are just too jaded to laugh at something for being surreal.
>>
>>77584134
>I don't know how kids watching this shit show will grow up to be normal citizens.
You don't? I didn't think it was that hard to figure out. They'll just laugh at harmless, dumb jokes like every other person, instead of caring about the deep lore woven into a cartoon for fucking kids and preteens. Laughing at stupid shit is pretty normal.
>>
>>77591056
>I think a lot of you guys are just too jaded to laugh at something for being surreal.
No, they just scream "RANDUMB!" because something doesn't try to act needlessly mature or meaningful, and just performs its role as a cartoon. Despite being much better animated, I bet these people would be just as pretentious about the nonsense going on in pre-code Fleischer cartoons, if they were made today.
>>
>people saying Uncle Grandpa is worst CN show
>not Titans GO

At least CN doesn't heavily promote Grandpa, and at least UG has actual effort put into the animation (for the most part)
>>
>>77588405
YES! It is admirable that they go in a different direction than other shows, and it's good to watch a weird/silly/stupid cartoon once in a while.
>>
>>77584134
Literally the only good show on CN. I hope it gets CN cancelled.

Why don't you piss off and go back to watching that Teen Titans mackre?
>>
>>77586156
I don't get that vibe at all. SMFA felt a bit like it was trying too hard. This feels much more natural. There are things that feel like concessions that were made to appeal to an audience, but the actual weirdness of it, like the spacial gags and stuff, don't feel forced at all.

>>77591101
Yeah. I think pre-code Fleischer is a good comparison.

>>77591056
I think in a way UG works better than Screwy. I like the Screwy shorts, but Screwy was too much of a dick for it to be sustainable, I think. I feel like if Screwy had lasted longer you'd get the same attitude toward him as you get toward the later Tom & Jerry stuff. I get thinking UG is obnoxious, but it never feels mean.
>>
I feel like people hate it because it doesn't have quirky humor or lore. Most adults probably don't like it because unlike GF or SU it doesn't have lore, story, or shippable characters and that makes them realize there watching a child's show that doesn't try hard to be more than what it is. They can't say its actually an adult cartoon because its "deep" with "strong characters" and "deep lore" to excuse the fact they like children's cartoons.

Nice projection loser. Just accept that people grew up and don't watch kiddie shit anymore. Some of us got fucking bills to pay and can't bring ourselves to ingest bucketloads of diabetes like we used to when we were six.
>>
>>77584134
Still better than Steven Universe.
>>
>>77584610
This.
I stopped a couple times, and asked myself if I should finish the episode. It's like they tried to take the wackiness of '90s shows like Cow & Chicken and Ren & Stimpy, and mix them with the screen changing and physics of School House Rock. It had the potential to be good, but it failed so hard.
>>
>>77593123
I dunno, I still enjoy shows I used to watch as a kid. Shows like Courage and Dexter that don't have a narrative or even a consistent universe.
>>
>>77584134
I think most of the people who like it are high. I could see high people enjoying it.

>>77584134

Tried watching it myself and I didn't even crack a smile at the jokes.
Usually even the crappy jokes in cartoons make me at least chuckle, but this was just unfunny as hell.

It's basically a show that tries to be something like the Looney Toons and the old 40s cartoons.
Unfortunately the jokes aren't funny and the stiff flash animation doesn't work at all in a format that's supposed to have tons of life to it.
So it only comes off as annoying as shit.
>>
>>77593579
Uncle Grandpa isn't animated on Flash.

Because that show has some GoAnimate level stiffness going on.

They had a skit directly referencing Emperor and GG Allin.

I can't really be mad at it.

>Screwy Squirrel
I ahve to disagree, it's like everything inside UG is dumb and is random on purpose, Screwy Squirrel was dumb but it was more for the slapstick than anything else. UG talking, Pizza Steve Talking, Gus being the black guy but not a black guy, everything is stupid on purpose

>>77591082
eh I guess but it's hard to avoid comparing to what kids from before grew up watching to this.
>>
>>77600754
I like Clarence, the kids act like kids sometimes and it feels innocent enough, I can appreciate that
>>
>>77605113
>UG talking, Pizza Steve Talking, Gus being the black guy but not a black guy
None of that is where UG's weirdness comes from, though.

The similarity between UG and Screwy is more in the way they use the medium for gags. I don't think its the best comparison, but I get it.
>>
>>77605457
Here's sort of an example of what I'm talking about. I think when I saw this episode is when I sort of got what the show was going for.
