I grew up with the cartoon so my perspective may be a little partial, but the cartoon is basically the comics translated 1:1 into animated form (minus allowances made for running time and budget), so if that's your bag then I'd definitely recommend it. I've got the box set, and the series covers all the albums (except the first two for painfully obvious reasons), but if you're looking for original stories with Tintin, Haddock, Calculus and the gang then there are a few animated movies out there that might appeal (having never seen them I can't vouch for their quality, mind).

To be frank, I always found them kinda boring. It's basically James Bond/Indiana Jones junior, with more wacky sidekick characters and a dog. It's just that frankly, Tintin himself is not a really interesting character, and the mystery is usually not that much. I was very disappointed in the Spielberg movie too.

Croods was massively creative. Unlike Disney and/or Pixar who keep lying in their trailers about what their movies are about. And you get crap instead of what you expected, but because your expectations were so high, you leave the movie overhyping that garbage.

Examples:

Up looked like a drama about some old guy getting his life under control again. But it was a dumb movie about dogs in planes with a strong beginning.

Frozen looked like an epic where someone tries to defeat her sister despite she being evil, leaving her conflicted. Instead, it's overhyped cutesy garbage, which, just because Disney adapted to becoming more deep like other movies loooong ago, is massively overhyped.

Brave looked like a cool, dark film about Scottish folklore. It was a dumbass movie about a girl trying to hide her bear-mom.

And, the worst contender here, Inside Out looked like an interesting movie which analyzes psychology in a fun way, but instead it's a road trip featuring Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie only.

What's hilarious about this one is that they had to rewrite one scene for this in "See No Evil" (the one with the invisible man who tries to kidnap his daughter from his ex-wife), yet earlier in the same season "Be a Clown" had a climax where the mayor's son was on a roller coaster with Batman, headed toward broken rails while Joker was throwing bombs at them.

Jumping through windows was supposedly imitable. Reboot has a similar restriction, hence the scene where Glitch suddenly makes a window disappear before Bob crashes through it.

Yeah, but there are also a bunch of handguns (of vague design, like the one Joker is holding in that picture) and shotguns (mostly trench guns, which are also old-looking but still seen commonly).

Oh, and looking around it turns out another thing they couldn't show was "homeless people that are not adult men".

Oh right, then it's another rule they came up with after they already did it in another episode.

That was probably allowed because all those kids ended up going to child services, while the scene the network thought was too depressing just had homeless families hanging around.

Batman: TAS and other cartoons of that era were produced for network television. Nowadays I believe most TV cartoons are made for cable: CN and Disney and their ilk. The impression I get is that since they're more directly involved with the production process they don't need to set down strict prohibitive guidelines but instead handle each show on a case-by-case basis. This does risk arbitrary sanctions whenever an exec takes a gut-feeling dislike to a show, but on the other hand it allows creators to game the system more - take Alex Hirsch putting one really out-there gag in an episode, being told to remove it, and thus letting the edgier gags he actually wanted in the episode to pass under the radar.

Yeah, at the end of the day, the execs were still trying to sell the show to a much younger demo than they were broadly getting. They wanted to milk that Y7 market for all the money they were worth rather than understanding that most of the numbers were in the low to upper teens.

The animation ghetto might have finally started to diminish, but the execs are holding onto it. HARD.

Executives hate changing markets. So much so that they often pressure marketing to try and reinforce whatever markets where already set. It's simply easier for them to handle. The fact that we're seeing all these riskier shows pop up tells me that the old styles just aren't as profitable any more.

I think pretty much every abnormality in a cartoon is a fetish and therefore gets an audience. There aren't a lot of cartoons that have never had a character grow, shrink or inflate. I think it might even be more the cause of the fetish than the effect of it (though that is debatable). I also maintain that every production studio should have an uncloseted mad fetishist to assist in decisions.

The Peanuts Movie was beautiful, funny, and touching. Its pacing is hectic at time and the Red Barron scenes only exist for justifying 3D showing, but the film overall was a great tribute Charles M. Schulz's work. My entire theater clapped at the very end.

No anon, that is totally subjective.

CGI took over because
– It is modern technology, and modern is always cool and you are cool for liking modern things.
– It looks like reality. CGI looks like real life, with all the details, lack of outlines, and dat lighting.

2D does not look like real life, and CGI does. Maybe people really want to deceive themselves into believing what they see on the screen is actually real. That is my theory, and I am sticking with it.

However, neither medium is objectively inferior.

Basically big CGI convinced everyone it's what people want.
For example, Disney made Home on the Range deliberately bad to be able to show as "proof" 2D is "dead".

There was a time when Trey and Matt just wanted to push it to the limits and just get the show canned because they were tired of it, and then something happened. Don't know it it was the second wind or maybe being able to write coherent and pretty complex serialized story lines tying themes together into a lampooning jab seems to have helped them. Maybe it was getting to just blow of steam with a game and just pour everything they'd want straight into that product without many of the restrictions they get from television.

Really I've heard nothing positive from Sony regarding any project, aside from a certain Reboot they are hoping to be a Franchise Starter.

Could be because that is what they are dumping all their eggs into and that is what they want to get the most news and in their mind any talk about anything else take away from their big film.

Theories based on the control they shifted to Sandler just because he's a big name star and not that good a producer.

Wonder how much of the original crew will return. Looking through a list of directors and storyboard artist, it seems a lot of them have worked for Cartoon Network semi-recently.

I mean, besides Aku (who's probably gonna be Greg Baldwin) the cast isn't a huge mystery: the show only had two regular characters and one-three recurring ones (depending on if you counted Jack's parents). LaMarr and DiMaggio haven't gone anywhere.

So two things bother me about this based off this announcement.

1. Because this is on Adult Swim, I'm concerned it won't have as much charm as the original. The original had a deliberately cartoony style and sense of humor to it. It was fun. But even with Genndy coming back, the fact that it's on an adult programming block means there will most likely be more violence and cursing, and probably more adult humor. I know some people see it as not being held back by network restrictions, but for me it causes a dissonance with the original.

Basically I'm concerned we won't see any of this anymore:

Jack ran the gamut back in the day of some things that may not be acceptable now. But even then its more that its going to be on Toonami than its going to be on adult swim and they've been running SBT and Jack for a while now.

I think that Shogun is more Aku getting another of his goons to go after Jack, maybe training them as Jack was trained. Though Jack getting Shogun armor wouldn't be amiss on his way to becoming Old King Jack.

I think I heard that it's not entirely retroscripted, but partially so. Like there are in-depth outlines that are written ahead of time, and maybe even a bunch of lines, but the actors are allowed to go off script and ad-lib. Can't cite a source on that, so I could be wrong. I know Adventure Time was confirmed recently to only have outlines before passing things on to the storyboarders, and the dialog scripts are transcribed from those--because one of the people responsible for transcribing the scripts was on Tumblr complaining about a panel that had Finn saying "Dude. What the fuck," because "then I have to come up with something that's as funny as 'what the fuck.' And nothing's funnier than 'what the fuck.'"

That's one of the pluses I see in the Digital System.

Cartoons have been kinda slow in taking advantage of Our New Streaming Media World, unlike live action shows (it's a bit of a pattern with the medium, going back to how the coming of television in the '50s hit the major Hollywood animation studios disproportionately hard), so I'm very interested in what kinds of shows emerge now that Netflix and Amazon Prime are finally dipping their toes in.

Netflix has been hamstrung by their animated shows being cross-media tie-ins rather than original properties, but the first batch of Amazon animated pilots include a couple of possible gems (especially Cartoon Saloon's Eddie of the Realms Eternal). It's an area to keep an eye on, definitely...it might be a platform on which those continuity-heavy action shows that have traditionally suffered on cable (like Motorcity or Sym-bionic Titan) finally have a chance to thrive.

Cartoons have an extreme disadvantage in that they require a pretty heavy time investment in order to actually generate something.

Even with new computer animated stuff, there's a sunk time issue where actually animating the thing eats up a mess of time, which live action doesn't suffer from because realistically you only need a camera and you don't need to make every object from scratch.

>Cartoons have an extreme disadvantage in that they require a pretty heavy time investment in order to actually generate something.

Cartoons took a ridiculously long time to "gel" with television, but they managed it eventually (albeit not without a lot of outsourcing and extensive hiatuses...hiatii...uh, anyone know the plural for "hiatus"?).

If anything, I'd argue that online streaming could segue much better with animation's natural rhythms than television does: TV is a constantly-starving beast that demands a neverending tidal wave of content in neat 22-minute pieces. It leads to absurd situations like second seasons being well into production by the time the first season finale is polished enough to air, so the creators are constantly nine months behind the curve of public opinion, they have no idea what audiences liked or didn't like about the first season. Streaming services, on the other hand, are happy to let the content creators get all their ducks in a row before releasing the fruits of their labours in one cohesive chunk. There's also no need to "fill airtime", which means that studios can concentrate on creating fewer, higher-value episodes per season that don't even need to be the same length as each other - a plot thread can be left in one episode and picked up in the next safe in the knowledge that the audience doesn't need to be brought up to speed every single time. It just generally offers more freedom.

The problem, I suspect, isn't so much on the production side but on the market side. Kids' networks function well and are very popular because the grown-ups can dump their spawn in front of the telly safe in knowledge that the screen will occupy the younglings while they go off and do grown-up things. On-demand streaming doesn't have the same reach, at least not yet, it's still very much tied to "boxset culture" - that is to say, colonising the sofa in your undies with a tub of ice cream and bingeing on something with lots of drama and swearing in it. I don't know if enough parents are comfortable letting their kids watch whatever they please on Netflix without supervision to sustain a market for cartoons of this type. This does seem to be changing as streaming services become ubiquitous, but it goes some way to explain why it's taken this long for Netflix and Amazon to diversify into non-adult animated content.

Did all of KC Green's comics go down, or is it just me? Either my connection is having very specific issues, a webhost is having issues, or KC is having issues.
