    The most recent episode of Nick Knacks focuses on Count Duckula, and at the end, it's pointed out that CD could be considered a Nicktoon as it was commissioned by Nick, was co-produced by Nick, and aired on Nickelodeon first.

    Which animated shows qualify as "Dramedies"?

    What are some animated shows that you would consider as being in the Dramedy genre (shows that contain an equal amount of comedy and drama)? The term is broad (I've seen Simpsons and Regular Show put in that genre, but they dont really qualify IMO). Ones that I'd say qualify are: King of the...

    Could AS show the first season of Tuca and Bertie?

    I didnt start watching the show until AS picked it up, but I was wondering if they could get the rights to air the first season. While I was able to figure out what was going on, if they aired that season, more people might get more of the backstory behind the characters. Netflix shows HAVE...

    Are teen characters underrepresented in modern cartoons?

    While there are plenty of shows (mostly in the adult cartoon market) with teen characters (Family Guy, Duncanville, etc), there are almost none where they're the main character (Rick and Morty comes close, but even then there are eps where Morty takes the backseat to the adults). I mean, there...

    Early 2010s or late 2010s?

    The 2010s were seen as a great decade for animation, but of them, do you prefer the early 2010s (2010-2014) or the second half of the decade (2015-2019)? Have to go with the former, while the late 2010s did give us some excellent shows (We Bare Bears, Final Space, OK KO, The Loud House), they...

    While I understand most people stream tv nowadays, does anyone sometimes still flip through the channels looking for something to watch? I occasionally do, as it's fun to randomly come across a movie or tv show you like.

    Sometimes, parodies of movies/tv/songs/others get basic facts about the characters wrong, therefore not making it work well as a parody. For example, both Saturday Night Live and South Park apparently thought Dumb Donald and Mushmouth (from Fat Albert) were the same character (though a later...

    Is Roger Rabbit a Disney character?

    Is Roger Rabbit considered a Disney character? He was technically created for a Disney film, but it was released under the Touchstone brand, and Disney doesnt really use him all that much (they only made a few shorts to show at the beginning of films in the early 90s, then, nothing).
