I can't honestly see myself watching Adventure Time, and my future grandkids even less.


maybe it's because you don't get it


Freakin' got THAT right!!!

(Maybe it's because there's nothing to get....)


but why are people thinking about there future grandkids? THEY AREN'T HERE lel


Probably the same reason I stare with a chill every time I see other posters who think they're "old" wax wistfully on the cartoons they grew up with in the Nickelodeon 90's: Whatever happened to Rocko's Modern Life? Ren & Stimpy? Angry Beavers?

If you find yourself wistful twenty years from now for Adventure Time or Uncle Grandpa, consider your childhood officially f***ed.

OTOH, I had to be occasional replacement babysitter and find new cartoons off of my DVD shelf for the third and fourth-grade relatives, and having already gone through most of the classic Looney Tunes and Flintstones, and because they'd already gotten their own copy of Castle of Cagliostro instead of repeatedly borrowing mine, I found myself digging down to the 70's cartoons that I never thought would age well at all, including a disk of Pink Panther, just because I had the edge on them for their never having heard of it. Thirty-five years after it last aired on TV, and they thought it was hilarious. They insisted on going through every toon in the set. And I never even had a chance to sock 'em with the theatrical Mr. Magoo set.
That's what happens when you make cartoons like they did in the old days, and make them for a mainstream audience, instead of for aging-stoner indie-animator freaks to amuse themselves: Other people get the jokes years later.

Well, cable for starters. I'm glad I grew up with amazing shows like Beasties/ beast wars, Samurai jack, animaniacs, bugs bunny, DBZ, I guess you could say whatever Cartoon network had to offer.

Even back in the day when Eureka 7 was aired on Channel 45, teletoon I think, same with bleach. Inyuasha on YTV, 25. Man even when I was a kid I grew up with anime. Good times man and I feel sorry kids today can't experience such an amazing childhood I experienced.

my innocence





The colloquial use of the word "literally". I used to say it in conversation to be a smart-arse when people used obscure idioms or derogative connotations, but now...

-It's literally not worth it anymore.

Anyone remember the channel G4?

You know, before the removal of many original programming, Adam Sessler and Morgan Webb's descent into madness, controversy, and eventual complete rebranding to become the Esquire Network?

what the hell happened

Cartoon Network is not ruined at all. Adventure Time, Regular Show and Steven Universe are very good shows, and a lot of people like Gumball but to be honest that one is too wierd for me.

The network that was absolutely destroyed is Nickelodeon. They now have only ONE good show which is the new version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and that´s it. Spongebob is complete shit along with all the other cartoons and each and every one of their live action shows are crap as well. It is sad to think that great shows like Hey Arnold have been left in the dust to be replaced by shit like Breadwinners and Sanjay and Craig

They decided to give Breadwinners a chance as a cartoon on their network because they saw the original web animation on youtube and thought that it was good. They´re not intelligent enough to bring Avatar back, and to be honest, I think that having Avatar and Korra is enough.

They could expand their horizons and try new animations as good as Avatar, but as seen by the Breadwinners example, that will probably never happen

Sadly TV in general I think has gone down hill. I think many producers/creators are more interested in what can be a hit even if only for 1 - 3 seasons rather than thinking if their show will ever last the test of time and become a classic.
