    Oh yeah. I remember that.
    I feel like Adult TV animation in the last 4 years is starting to improve despite some bumps in the road while Kids TV animation is in an awkward spot where it's on throw whatever at the wall and see what sticks mode thanks to streaming and the pandemic.

    Not to mention, lack of variety in linear TV channels as well.
    All this sadness over Choco Taco being discontinued and I'm here thinking I never had it.

    I never had one either! My first thought was that it was a literal beef, cheese and lettuce taco with chocolate on it, and I thought "does that work???"

    I had one once?

    well here's a show I just discovered. This pre-dates all of the future adult animated sitcoms. Yeah the show is pretty dated but it's a fascinating piece of history.
    Hard to believe DiC lasted longer than most Saturday morning studios

    I was thinking of this earlier today while watching some old cartoons. There were some studios that made very memorable, successful shows during the 80s but for one reason or another, a lot were gone during the early 90s. Dic kept finding ways to go on.

    DiC was able to survive through multiple acquisitions and partnerships, which kept the company busy over the decades. I highly recommend reading DiC's history on Wikipedia. It's quite fascinating.

    I think it’s because the DIC Library is retentive available
    I feel like breadwinners would’ve never been greenlit under Herb Scannell’s or Gerry’s Laybourne’s Nickelodeon or maybe they would say put more thought into it

    Or better yet, have this show never greenlight in the first place.

    Same thing with Fanboy and Chum Chum.
    Man I remember when Gravity Falls was coming up, I thought it was going to be a Regular Show knock off due to the premise and art style looking similar. It didn’t help that the trailers made it look terrible.

    It wasn’t until the word of mouth got theough that the show blew up bigger than expected

    Yeah, I remember back when I was 12-13, the trailers didn't really impressed me.

    That, and I also stopped watching Disney Channel and focusing on watching YouTube videos.
    i've noticed when Musicians/bands try to sell out to NFT's it's either someone who hasn't been relevant in the past 6 years or so or someone who desperately needs money because their recent albums or songs didn't do much

    after watching Dr. Strange 2. I'm glad Sam Raimi gets to direct another film and put his filmmaking trademarks in their but at the same time It's still another manufactured Marvel movie and they got to hit certain beats or else audiences wouldn't like it.

    I don't know if it's me getting tired of superhero films or me getting older and growing out of them and want to expand my movie tastes
    Do you think some clueless parent out there bought those animated Titanic movies and showed it to their kids like it was a Disney film?

    it's sad you don't see a lot of adult animated series created by artists or animators in the industry.

    I know, it's quite sad, but with the current state of the Western animation industry, much more importantly the entire world's economy over the past 2 years, and I could to some extent see why?

    Maybe in 2-5 years? If we're even lucky enough?

Any degenerates here?
If so, Rule 34 is set to get a revolution soon...
Overs the years, I have come to understand how tone & attitude is something that isn't easy to convey in a typed/written format like the Internet.
A character on The Simpsons made the case that animation is a field built on plagiarism. I think the same thing could be said for comic books and video games, as well.

Just ask, and I could provide examples for both.

Did you ever hear any news about the new animated PPG being revived by Hanna-Barbera Studios? If so, do you look forward to it?

New word for today* is "Taft-Hartleying".

*Discovered it a couple days ago, but put it off until now.
