Cartoons that don't deserve a thread Anonymous 09/20/2020 (Sun) 21:00:41 No. 5165
So, I'm watching through this early-2000's series called Alienators: Evolution Continues, and the entire show just feels...off for some reason. I cannot put my finger on why. The show comes across as generic in every way, but even saying that doesn't seem to classify the show properly. You can watch it here to see what I'm talking about: https://invidio.us/playlist?list=PLkLimRXN6NKyhCEvWdWl0Kmab6YefDh6h Has anyone else had this feeling about other series?
>>5519 Purely for licensing reasons. Hasbro didn't get the rights to Rambo toys. Rocky was technically in a single issue of GI Joe, though. The toy was cancelled, but too late to block his appearance in the comic. https://gijoe.fandom.com/wiki/Rocky
>>5165 >show where everything feels off, janky , mildly repellent >called it 'Alienators' Can't say they didn't warn you OP

Doesn't need a thread but F is for Family is getting a 5th and final season sometime in 2021.
>>5704 Does anyone even watch that crap?
>>5704 Looking forward to it. It's very good.
>>5704 >>5705 I watched the first two seasons. In the first one I was just waiting for the dad to put Bill Burr through the fuckin' wall. I wanted something more like George Liquor. By Season 2 he's just a little bitch and the show is boring. Not bothering to watch more.
>>5741 But Bill Burr is the dad.
>>5742 I meant the kid named Bill, who is clearly supposed to be him as a kid. Bill Burr sucks anyway. He's just what SJWs think is edgy, but is always sure to stay inside the lines.
Remind me, some 90's-early 2000's cartoon about a lion king/prince who is sent forward in time by an evil snake sorceress and her army of robots. He is helped by some other animal people with a time machine and they have to find various items of the past, such as an incense burner. The lion's girlfriend is cursed to sleep and he needs to wake her up. I remember this being a thing when I was a kid, but I obviously don't remember the title. I just want to know how the story ended, if it ever did.
>>5704 was this cartoon originally going to be a FOX cartoon (it feels like one) but then the producers heard about Disney buying/owning FOX in the near future, so they decided to put on Netflix instead as a number of people are kinda put off by Disney?

Robotboy was way shittier than I thought. I watched about two episoides a couple months ago and Gus' presence really made the good parts fucking unbearable to watch. Which is a shame 'cause even outside of nostalgia, it'd be something I'd want to give a shot. I'll be honest, though, I may give it another shot one day, 'cause fuck if there are any other cartoons I'm watching. On a different note, has anyone watched The Mighty B or even El Tigre? I fucking loved those when they came out, but I never bothered trying to watch them again. Has anyone done that and could they attest if they're actually as good as I think they are?
>>7968 Just watch MLaaTR instead.
>>7968 I haven't watched them in a while, but if I remember correctly Mighty B is one of these shows that you either love or hate with no middle points. Bessie and a good bunch of the cast are annoying in purpose, so you need to get over that fact in order to enjoy the show and get the jokes.
>>7968 Mighty B is well animated but for the wrong reasons, everything is fluid but for the sake of being annoying rather than a proper meaning, It has far more production value than most modern cartoons but this production value doesn't go to something that isn't try to appeal to really young children. Haven't watched El Tigre, but I remember loving the shit out of it back in the day, I recently watched El Libro de la Vida (from the dame creator of El Tigre) and I liked it a lot so I might give it a try
>>8047 El Tigre had a really good art style.

From the credits of Billy & Mandy's Jacked-Up Halloween. What and unfortunate name.
>>5704 1st and 2nd hit home close because I do know some people who work at airports and they told pretty much nothing has changed. 3rd and 4th really felt like Family Guy shit, but at least its coherent. >>8047 >Mighty B I remember everyone was shitting on that cartoon, hell they even compared her to current Spongebob. The cartoon looks like something John K. would've shit out at the last moment. >Created by a no-name dyke from SNL That explains a lot.

>A second series of 26 episodes was commissioned by CITV, which would've had the CGI sequences animated by Nelvana in Canada. However, because Carrington Productions International was absorbed into Entertainment Rights, the second series didn't get made. >26 scripts that Gerry Anderson wrote before he died have just never been fulfilled. But given how everything is CG these days, maybe that's a good thing. I never knew that there was an S2 in production that just never got made. Some Thomas the Tank Engine autism for ya as well, new series , It's horrible. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9RZj4UPLIcU The appeal of Thomas, beware actual Autism: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZc1ZEwqRC8 And behind the scenes of the original, look at that massive valley they hand craft. It's beautiful. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=axeMJM7vAWc

>>9298 >"Mighty B porn" >Some crazy, degenerate fuck got a stiffy from looking at (presumably) Bessie >he even (presumably) made art of her getting dicked down I have to wonder just how much of that is unironic fap material and how much of that is only made to make people asshurt and go apeshit.
>>7968 Robotboy is everything wrong about the 2000s condensed into one show. Gus was unbearable even as a pre teen, I'd probably claw my eyes out nowadays if I had to put up with that shit. If you're going to make him an annoying cunt at least make the fat fucker likeable.
>>9303 There's a difference?

>>5165 >Alienators: Evolution Continues, and the entire show just feels...off for some reason. I cannot put my finger on why. I'm a little late to the party, but... 1. Evolution wasn't that great a movie. Orlando Jones was great, and Three Named Teen Movie Actor was fun, but Agent Mulder and Bitchy Von Redhead were obviously phoning it in. I think they were going for Ghostbusters but it came off as more like Ghostbusters II 2. The cartoon was an attempt to capitalize on the success of the movie (which wasn't a success) and to take advantage of the craze of movie-based cartoons (like the one based on the American attempt of Godzilla in 1998, which was horrible). Finally, I think they were going for The Real Ghostbusters, but it came off more as Extreme Ghostbusters. It was unwatchable, and their Slimer ripoff based on the three-eyed smiley face was blatant.
>>9453 >movie-based cartoons (like the one based on the American attempt of Godzilla in 1998, which was horrible). I know you mean that the movie was horrible, but the cartoon based on it was actually very good.
Just wanted to make a quick note about Raya and the Dragon, it's an obvious chinese movie by disney with a female protagonist. Thing is people in South East Asia, who were marketed to by this movie can't even watch it as Disney+ isn't even in their area. Kelly Marie Tran is also doing more voice acting, cause she voices the main I think and also a character in Croods 2. Guess she fills that niche of young asian voice actor they need. Also speaking of trends of disappointing sequels that had females as the main focus, Lego Movie 2, Incredibles 2, Wreck it Ralph 2 and Croods 2.

>>10072 >Dragon Nerd Someone at tumblr wrote that line. >Father is Johnny Gat Shame he gets killed 20 minutes in by a no threat evil. I've seen better Chinese movies with better action, hell better animation in general. This is White Snake from 2019 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JeTy_t4WAfo Chinese made movie about Chinese made stuff basically copying the Pixar style but with demon loli as well. Not saying they're based but Chinese made movie is superior to American made movie made for Chinese audience.

>>10076 Ohhhh, god. It's Nora Lum, or Awkwafina. Her voice is terrible. Tran knows how to act, mostly but has a decent voice. Lum's sounds black. And I have to endure this for another hour. Another. Hour. >I got water skills that kill. *Laugh Track* >Dragon never shuts up, just like Ghostbusters 2016. Talking and talking and talking is not comedy. >More talking Make it stop.

>>10077 Know one group of people who will make art out of this. >Con-baby. This is someone's fanfic. Or a wuxia setting with the shittiest DM ever. This script is so dumb, it's not the contrivances, it's the lack of intelligence. Fugging White Snake had snake demon loses memory, finds boy, meets up with half-sister (Who's weirdly into her, like more than siblings) she starts to rage blah blah blah kind of a happy ending. Story isn't the best but at least it tries. Here, oh god... it's just plodding along with no serious events impacting the story. >Use con-baby to break into house. >Shishu? gets tricked and thrown at dark monster. >Chief says, "You tell me where other gem pieces are, or you get turned to stone." >Ignoring the fact the Chief HEARD Shishu say they had other pieces. >Why would you throw away your only lead and risk them being turned into Stone, you know, so they can't tell you any fucking thing. This is the level of stupidity of this movie. If it were any other curse, it'd be fine but the fact she'd be stone and therefore unable to say anything makes the threat useless. If I was Raya in this Lone Wolf and Cub situation, I'd kill the two kids she's picked up already and reap a path towards those gems. I know it's Murder Hoboish but still, much better plot. Also what is it with Disney and shaved heads? I saw a random episode of the last bit of clone wars and there were 2 sisters, shocker, with shaved heads as well. It's like aposematism but without color.

I get that it's basically Tenochtitlan but you could slope down the edges right to the water and buy yourself a few more years. >Your fear is like delectable nectar feeding the tum-tum of my soul. Tastes like Mango. >I love Mango. >Of course you love Mango, everyone does. I'd keep count of how many times I've cringed but I broke my counter by pressing it too fast. >MLP Dragons. >Is not even proper Chinese dragons.
>>10079 >Subsequent to Crazy Rich Asians, Adele has been recruited by Disney to develop an animated feature film Raya and the Last Dragon. >Qui Nguyen is a Vietnamese American playwright, television writer, and screenwriter.[ So Crazy rich asians writer and Diane try to write an asian movie, absolutely fail in basic fucking themes and as a surprise, it sucks. Both females are also flat, no one is over a B cup. Typical Disney. >I'm taking the dragon. >Shishu says to Raya trust me. >After being backstabbed. >After being repeatably attacked. >After they didn't leave her in Spine to easily get the last piece. >After she says "I don't have a choice." Urgh, the heroes are doing the high and mighty thing in we'll show that our goals and values are better than Fangs, who are... nothing. But it's such a fucking handicap to people that have turned to stone. If Raya were more bloodthirsty, she could free people and put down Fang. This living harmoniously BS doesn't work when the stakes are the end of life as we know it. >“Stand amongst the ashes of a trillion dead souls, and ask the ghosts if honor matters. The silence is your answer.” Replace ash with stone and trillion with a few dozen. That's your answer. >But muh Wuxia This is a Disney film, so of course they're going to saccharine it up but to this degree is too much for me. HAHAHA, she shot Shishu. Hahaha. There goes your final hope. People should be sad and dramatic over this. But fug is it funny to me. >The dragon goes so does the water. Contrived. Even 12 Kingdoms is better. Hey. >Can you post a better east asian setting that has a female protag with better hair, better fantastical monsters and actually has a sensible plot and no modern fucking themes? >Hurr Durr it's your fault. For fugs sake, kill the bitch and be done with it.

>>10080 >Rocks fall, get surrounded. >They're going to offer their rocks and get turned to stone. >Raya then finds and revives Shishu and then they revive everyone. This plot is so pedestrian you could install a crosswalk on it. The mist monsters are also contrived writer drama points because they don't follow any rules on on how they infect. They just seem to do it always. >The magic rocks isn't powered by magic that Shishu used, it's Trust instead. When the dragons offered up their magic, they trusted Shishu with it. It's not magic, it's Trust. This is Pre-school level BS. Like, seriously. >Raya gives up her stone. It's not even a moment of self sacrifice, it's just stupid. >Hey, is there another Disney heroine in a better animated film that gave up her stone to save her friends/people/culture? The 4k of Atlantis is *Italian chef kiss*. Level of detail still holds up today and makes me sad that Disney only produce heroine focused movies now instead of actual adventure pieces that might not have made back money but god damn were they original. >They all trust dragonslayer with the rocks, she puts them back together again but also gets turned to stone. Okay, a swerve.

>>10083 Dragons come back, they revive Shishu, world united, happy end. Yayyyy. Except they use Dragon magic for that, not Trust. Urgh, god this movie is bad. >"Another gorgeously animated, skillfully voiced entry in the Disney canon, Raya and the Last Dragon continues the studio's increased representation while reaffirming that its classic formula is just as reliable as ever. >The film was criticized for the lack of Southeast Asian representation in the cast, as the film's setting is set in a fictional land that represents Southeast Asia. Most of the cast are of East Asian heritage, with the exception of K. Tran, Butler, T. Tran, Wang and Harrison. The film's theme song "Lead the Way" is performed by Aiko, who is also East Asian and of Japanese descent. Diversity first, story second. God it's fucken pedantic. Urgh, that was horrible, not as bad as Moana but almost as worst was Wreck it Ralph 2. Don't watch, please. Don't. Save yourself this bad product I implore you and watch White Snake instead, that has an actual story and haughty demon loli.
>>10078 Actually that's another Disney thing with recent movies, why no serious resistance for their heroines? Atlantis has Milo rescuing Kida inside a damn volcano, Treasure Planet has the finding the treasure but when escaping after the trap goes off. Tangled, evil step mother, (Which ironically has more of a self sacrifice from Flynn after he cuts her hair that could save him than Raya in this movie). Frozen, twist villian. Moana? volcano god thing? Don't remember. Here? negative energy that makes people stone for some reason. The lack of a proper threat for their heroines to overcome doesn't make them worthy. It's the Mary-Sue traits all over again, because modern Disney heroines can never lose, they always jump over the lowest hurdles they can.
>>10085 >why no serious resistance for their heroines? Just deciding to look it up, here's the "resistances" in all of the "Walt Disney Animated Classics" films: I may be missing something because I haven't seen some of these films in years. >Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs <The queens using her magic and influence to kill Snow White >Pinocchio <The conman and the whale >Dumbo <Dumbo lacking self-confidence >Bambi <Bambi going through the pains of growing up >The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad <Mr Toad running from the law in order to prove his innocence, and Ichabod attempting to escape the horseman (With his fate left uncertain) >Cinderella <Cinderella being lorded over by he step mother and sisters >Alice in Wonderland <Alice almost dying in her dream world >Peter Pan <Hook doing everything he can to kill Peter >Lady and the Tramp <Lady feeling like she's unloved and used >Sleeping Beauty <The prince having to actually fight Maleficent as a dragon >One Hundred and One Dalmatians <Cruella hunting down the escape dogs >The Sword in the Stone <Arthur never really wanting anything better for himself >The Jungle Book <Mogli's finally meeting Khan >The Aristocats <The butler attempting to kill the cats for the inheritance >Robin Hood <Prince John lording over the English and attempting to capture Robin >The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh <Winnie and friends getting into trouble and having to get themselves out >The Rescuers <Saving Penny from drowning the well and escaping Miss Medusa >The Fox and the Hound <Tod hunting down and almost killing Copper >The Black Cauldron <The party having to stop the Horned King from conquering the world after he raises and army of the dead >Oliver & Company <The entire group escaping Sykes on the bridge, who's hunting them down so that he can hold Penny for ransom >The Little Mermaid <Prince Eric having to fight a giant Ursula >Beauty and the Beast <Beast finally letting Bell go >Aladdin <Aladdin having to defeat and almighty Jafar with nothing but his whits >The Lion King <Simba fighting Scar for control over the Pride Lands >Pocahontas <Pocahontas trying to prevent her people and the English from slaughtering each other >The Hunchback of Notre Dame <Quasimodo protecting Esmeralda in Notre Dame while Frollo has the police attempting to invade the building >Hercules <Hercules continuing to fight because there's no one else who can do it >Mulan <Mulan continuing on to prevent the Huns from taking over China, despite whatever consequences she may face >Tarzan <Tarzan fighting the group of hunters >Dinosaur <All of the dinosaurs standing together against the T-Rex >The Emperor's New Groove <Defeating Yzma while on the side of the castle >Lilo & Stitch <Thwarting Gantu to save Lilo >Home on the Range <Attempting to capture Slim at his hideout (It fails, but it still counts) >Chicken Little <Bringing the baby AYY to the mother ship >Meet the Robinsons <Lewis attempting to escape the bad future where Doris takes over the world >Bolt <Bolt saving Penny from the fire >The Princess and the Frog <Trying to destroy the Shadow Man's amulet >Wreck-It Ralph <Ralph saving "Sugar Rush" by sacrificing himself >Big Hero 6 <Fighting Callaghan and preventing him from killing Krei >Zootopia <Attempting to escape with the evidence exposing Bellwether's conspiracy against the city's predators
>>10085 >why no serious resistance for their heroines? Because if a female character ever faces difficulty it means that the film is misogynist propaganda, you shitlord.
>>9465 The cartoon was decent, but the premise was broken from the beginning. If Godzilla-spawn were capable of imprinting on the first thing they saw when hatching, then Matthew Broderick should have had an army of nuke-raptors at his command. Also, there's the little problem of Zilla 2.0 ALSO being a hermaphrodite capable of impregnating and laying dozens of its eggs all over the place. Earth should have been lousy with feral kaiju every bit Zilla Jr's equal. Plus, and this is just the /pol/ack in me, I suppose, I got sick and fucking tired of the token black continually making fun of the clumsy smart white guy.
