>Why were 80s cartoon women so sexy?
Because you were younger and had lower standards
Women in cartoons are for the most part fugly.
Cause it makes adult women who don't watch it feel bad about themselves and makes them feel the female equivalent of emasculated when their significant others pop boners over drawings and their children ask WHY IS THEIR MOMMY NOT FAT.
There were some internal memos from Nickelodeon that were leaked in the early 90's and later corroborated by leaked documents from Cartoon Network a few years later.
These documents seemed to offer clarification on a few minor points in a larger plan to "Sexualize the pre-teens." It discussed more about the implications of this plan than the plan itself, but it was clearly stated in several key phrases that this would make the generations more easy to manipulate and control as consumers. That the children and subsequent generations of children exposed to this program would be more susceptible to subversive or sexualized advertising.
Although the documents were leaked in the 90's, most experts believe they make reference to a larger plan that is spoken of as if it has been in place for some time already and subject to continuous evolution.
They followed traditional, 'realistic' style of drawing often seen in very early comic books.
Contrary to what any fat millennial says, this is not sexy.
Agreed. Not sexy at all.
This on the other hand.
80s cartoons trended towards more complex designs because they spent most of the episode standing around doing very little.
Most of the Gems have designs with comparatively non-human features.
Why are they all drawn with weird gross corpse noses? Is this her unique "style"? To make the characters look desiccated?
It allows for greater simplification? I guess?
Yeah it's a tossup between pig and corpse
It sure as hell isn't appealing. And this isn't a women-have-to-be-sexy thing, Stephen himself is disgusting largely due to his pig/corpse nose
And curly hair. Curly hair is proof there is no god.
