>>420048 regarding the original trolley problem, is it morally acceptable to argue that leaving the trolley to run will be slightly more effective at reducing overpopulation, probably resulting in a greater net win for mankind?
>>420305 It's even funnier when you think about how Donald's room appears to be lived in and there's no sign of his parents anywhere, so his emo phase is likely a response to his parents being absent and the 180 on his attitude re:xmas in the present day is likely because Della loved xmas so much. Loving xmas reminds him of how much his seemingly dead sister loved it and would have wanted to share that love with her kids.
>>420360 This will be a glorious trainwreck, can't wait for the reviews. Apparently the dirwctor says the model of Sonic will be corrected, but let's be honest, how much can they change? It won't save this movie.
This Amphibilands show is out now, and.. it is fine. But I get serious Star vs vibes from the art style and the way it f o cuses on slice of life stuff and humor while main plot is secondary. Given the way that show went down the drain, I am not investing much time into it.
>>420668 Pidax released the whole show on DVD last year. I frankly only vaguely remember the show, mostly the villains. That huge dragon guy spent all the series sitting on his throne like he was a statue...
I hope at least 0.5 people here remember Hullabaloo. Well, from all I've seen, behind the scenes there are some major problems slowing everything down, problems the director is unwilling to get into. Anyway, despite the centuries passing by, the project is STILL not dead, and still relatively close to completion.

Image from a few days ago. Episode 1 seems to be complete.
>>420704 That show lost its legs so fast they did a giant crossover with Trollhunters in the first season already... as if they did not have confidence it could stand on its own. I watched both shows for a while but gave up. I guess I don't like cookie-cutter "mwhahaha" villains, heroes who routinely murder their enemies, and way too much of the show being taken up by boring school slice of life stuff. In comparison I love Class of the Titans which has a similar premise but does none of these mistakes.
>>420715 Thanks! I started rewatching the New Adventures first but I wanted to check out the original too someday, never seen much but a few episodes. I read the second season of NA was made to be more like the old show by writers who hated change - they made Benton's hair red, de-aged the kids, and turned Jessie from smart and badass to damsel in distress. They also killed of most new adventures villains and brought back Dr Syn.
>>420776 It’s a POV thing; you see those aliens throughout Season 3 of Trollhunters, and Season 1 of 3 Below is showing their side of things during that time. What makes season 2 so interesting is that it’ll have to stand on its own now as it takes place after the series finale of Trollhunters which involves Jim leaving Arcadia with most of the trolls
>>420813 That's admirable, if unlikely. So few people seem interested I had to wait half a year in case of both seasons to appear as torrents... And then I had to up the second season to Mega and contact Kimcartoon to put it up, they wouldn't have known about it otherwise. I tjink calling each season differently doesn't help, makes people assume it is a new show
>>420820 It’ll be interesting to see all the trailers and where it’s all going to end up. The mad lad Pryce has supposedly set up his own distribution thingy for kulipari stuff https://variety.com/2019/digital/news/trevor-pryce-kulipari-cinedigm-1203185442/ He’s a man with a clear passion for this but it always seems like he’s reaching way too far. Color me curious however. Hidingwar sounds and looks like a prequel story we’ll get to see Darel’s Dad in. Since it’s already been implied Warflower is a side story to Dreamwalker, that must mean Veneno is the name of season 3
Getting around to watching 3 Below S2. The cutest minor detail of the post Trollhunters S3 world is the entire town accepts the existence of Trolls and agrees to keep them a secret from the rest of the world as appreciation for helping protect them, that's so soft and comfy.
Opinion: Without context, the finished Cans Without Labels is not bad. I've never been a fan of John K's timing (but it's not horrible) and his melodramatic, extended anger/insanity scenes get old quickly, but it's a solid video with an interesting animations style, some humour and the 2D/3D mix is alright. The shorts at the end were a waste though. However, with context, holy shit I'm glad I wasn't around to back that kickstarter. Those bonus features had better be worth it.
>>420854 Saw that show a lot as a kid but I dunno why it never gelled with me. Same as the one with the oxen in the suspenders taking care of animals. Or was that a character the same show? Guess someone liked it enough to bring it back.
>>420870 >Mostly saying after what, 6 years, could have been far more than this. That's part of what I meant about "with context". It could and should have been far more or at least taken far less time. I didn't think the CGI was a bad thing. The CGI wasn't really pretty, but I'm not expecting a masterpiece from an animated short. That said, I would never think bad of someone for not liking John K's style.
>>420903 Not sure I like this mega crossover idea. Weird to imagine Baloo and co coexisting with Duckburg. Will they bring Aladdin in next? >>420904 I totally forgot that humans existed there. They only had animal villains to fight, no? Then again, never really watched that show since I was a kid. It did not age well, unlike others.
>>420903 Hope the same team does the BR who did Batman TAS. That remaster is amazing. I bought it, came with a lot of neat extras too. Planned to buy Beyond on DVD but will skip that. Heck, I bet they will soon do Superman TAS and Justice League too.
>>420905 Yo man, that's not Baloo, it's Kit Cloudkicker all grown up, you made that assumption by the appearance that hee looks like him cause the body frame but if you look closely at the fur color and the hat and you can tell the difference.
>>420930 They are doing crossovers now? The second seasons is not yet even over, no? Btw, why are they having these giant gaps between episodes? Can't they stick to a proper weekly schedule? Why is it that hard these days for cartoons? TV shows can manage it just fine.
>>421121 Just watch it here... for free. I am not subscribing for any of these, I mean can you imagine how much I would have to pay every month just for a few shows I follow on each channel? https://kimcartoon.to/Cartoon/The-Adventures-of-Rocky-and-Bullwinkle-TV-Series Soon this system will die out because people will only be able to support 1 of these subscriptions only.
>>421132 Sorry, I will simply never understand this attitude. Guess maybe if I had grown up rich and privileged in a country like America where even kids have their own cars at 16 and have multiple video game consoles.... Or at least watching Hollywood movies gave that impression to me about about the USA when I was young. Living in suburb homes that would be considered rich people's villas in my country... Having microwaves and color TVs when we never even heard of the former and the latter was something much yearned for by families, affordable by few. So yeah, when the internet arrived, even as a dial-in, and people started swapping shows and movies on pendrives, it caught on and never disappeared. Not when the average hungarian still earns only a fraction of what people in Western Europe and the USA earn. Not saying I myself, now as a working man, could not afford these if I really wanted. But I chose to spend money only on shows I really, really like. Those I go out of my way to purchase on BluRay if they exist. Which is why I hate the netflix system... I'd love to own stuff like BoJack or All Hail King Julien on a diskset.
Watched season 1 of Gen:LOCK to the end, a perfect way to wrap many things up, while giving everything enough time, having some of the best dialog and realistic reactions in all of animation ever made, a decent romantic subplot, all THAT plus decent worldbuilding (they only did not go into the antagonists, having them be "the enemy"). Korra had 13 episodes, and the only thing it did better was giving the villains depth. Which is funny.
(I feel like I am the only one here who likes it though, or thinks it's THAT great)
Season 1 Promo | DRAGONS RESCUE RIDERS Shame Rescue Riders turned out to just be a spin-off for preschoolers instead of a new adventure with Hiccup and friends. Well, looks like it’ll sell toys, anyway.
>>421314 Yikes. Yeah, this has about as much to do with the original as the new Spirit show. Guess it is truly over, then.
>>421322 You are losing out on a LOT of good stuff. Season 1 started out boring but the shows got really, really good. They added a lot of depth to all the characters. It's on my rewatch list for the near future.
>>421275 I have to ask this part: "some of the best dialog and realistic reactions in all of animation ever made" because... I don't wanna tread on your toes, I know what it is to love a show and think it is the best, but Rooster Teeth makes some of the most generic anime faces ever. How are these the most realistic in ALL animation? You mean better than motion-capture like Gollam, Avatar, Smaug, etc?
>>421336 I tried checking out the books (they started releasing them everywhere after the success of the movie) but they were so very different I just could not get into them at all. Anyway it would be weird if dragons could talk and Hiccup or Fishlegs did not figure it out. They are intelligent for sure and have some form of communication, but I never got that they would be as intelligent as humans from the movies or the show.
>>421405 They have the full Mystery Inc cast in there, however they are hard to distinguish because they mostly look like their normal iterations. However, you can identify them from: - Fred has a super buff chest, skinny and very long legs, and a square jaw - shit, he almost looks like Johnny Bravo. - Daphne has her scarf on the front instead of the side - Velma is super cute
The only other ones I can tell apart, not counting the original gang, is the live action cast, A Pup named Scooby Doo, Scooby Apocalypse, 13 Ghosts Shaggy and Daphne, and that unholy terror of a design from the latest show.
There's at least two designs there I can't identify... probably for the better.
I don't care as long as they keep Jim Carrey's Robotnik intact. He looked fucking great in the trailer, and they teased that he actively becomes more eggman-like as the movie goes on due to plot reasons. Which I think is a fucking great idea.
This was shilled on /co/ by the stupidest anon possible, did not even try to hide his/her newiness.
Well, a few hours later the YT Algorithm itself recommended it to me, I [i]had[/] to watch it. Not a bad storyboard, but that is ALL it is. Good premise for a not overly serious cartoon aside, it's not impressive to see something unfinished. STILL, I will post it here: SALEM TRAILER! ( ANIMATIC ) - Kick Starter Link in descriptions!
>>421527 I reached the episode where Robot switches from Stephen Hawking to a VA. I miss the text-to-speech Robot Jones... also MLaaTR is a direct result of Rob Resetti working on Robot Jones and Powerpuff Girls, prove me wrong.
>>421802 What ARE Wednesday and Pugsley? Actually same goes for their parents and most of their family.
It isn't like the Munsters where each is obviously a particular kind of monster, the Addams family just seem extremely weird people (barring examples like Cousin Itt) who engage in monstrous customs and some are seen to survive a great deal of physical harm, particularly say Pugsley or Fester.
>>421841 They are just a friendly, close-knit, large extended family with keen interest in the macabre (to the horror of others). There is no explanation given on why they are so weird. The joke is that despite being so weird, they are in fact good people - the family deeply cares for each other, and they are extremely friendly to everyone.
>>421983 mobile posters are the same people who used to sit all day through 4chan pressing F5 every five seconds fifteen years ago. Except they now do it from a phone, and expect the phone to alert them automatically when a new post is made.
>>422006 It gets muddy in some peoples mind. I've seen people who claim that, reposting someones image, is stealing content, and you should instead push the share button on their twitter or something like that.
>>422006 Certain people tend to think that fan art is '''stealing''' a character. Copyright infringement, most likely, but not stealing. If someone gives credit to the original, or the original is so famous that it needs no explicit mention, then it's not really a big issue in my mind.
>>422007 I find this claim far more reasonable. You are duplicating a work without modification and without permission. I've had people repost my content and delete any mention of me in the comments and ignoring questions about the content. Furthermore, I've had my content duplicated by highly popular channels without being told nor credited, so people who enjoyed it couldn't find my other work or comment to me, which I think are reasonable expectations for artists posting online. If you share content via platform feature or at least credit the artist, that's far more ethical because they know what is going on.
Stealing? Probably not a legally satisfactory term, but it is certainly copyright infringement and incidentally a little fucked up if you are sharing beyond a few people. The loss (usually) isn't material but it certainly impacts the artist. It gets really fucked up when popular groups copy your work, monetise it and fail to credit you. That was the original reason copyright law was invented, before it became the disgusting monster it is today.
>>422008 >I've had people repost my content and delete any mention
That's clearly art stealing in my book, but that wasn't what I was referring to. Some people complain it theft if you repost their art even when giving them full credit as the artist. If it wasn't uploaded by them on their site, they consider it theft.
>>422007 Never understood that mentality. Y'd think people would want their fan art that they already put out on DA or twitter to be SPREAD and get to as many people as possible? I certainly would for mine... Honestly I thought this mentality died out alongside the time where artists maintained their own geocities and such websites, around the mid 2000s.
This is old, and some/most/all of you might have read this, but one particular paragraph summarizes brilliantly how one is to continue an old show WITHOUT resorting to member berries or making a real life commentary for brownie points: https://www.syfy.com/syfywire/the-creator-of-the-invader-zim-movie-cares-nothing-for-your-puny-human-nostalgia
>>422193 I see those as forced memes. Like, if you draw cartoon porn all the damn time, when somethings comes back in popular discourse, you want to draw it because you know you will get views, (you)s, and keep you from boredom cause you get something NEW to draw. Yes, porn artist being excited about drawing some new character for once drives a good 3rd of all R34.
After 40,000 years, I finally went back to catch up on South Park. Having been burned by the IP owners monitoring ALL the Internets 24/7 for anybody torrenting, and South Park Studios closing down, I really stopped watching.
>>422501 Warning, but I received several. Fuck it, unless I master the art of VPN and hide myself behind seven proxies, I am not torrenting just everything, just obscure/out of print things I know no big wig cares about.
>>422507 To give an answer that wasn't expected, both are adaptations of a single book canon, so neither.
In other news, watched Kipo on Net Flicks, and naming it one of the "top 10" cartoon shows I seen in the last 10 years. The directing (choice of angles, timing, composition of the action scenes) is so unlike the samey shit I seen in SO many shows on the Big Two. The premise is easy enough to understand from the very first episode, but I legit have no idea where the plot is going. Predictable, it is not. Also, despite being CARTOONY, the hoomans are all real enough in their choices and speaking; I will always say realistic behavior is what makes an imaginary person feel real, and nothing else.
>>422524 Kipo feels like someone read Kamandi, Last Boy on Earth and then decided to hire the Ben 10/Transformers Animated people to turn it into a toon. Oh and got JJ Abrams to write it. Because sooooo little happens in the first bloody season it is criminal. Ah at least we got some nice raccoon aerobic ladies out of it.
Marvel revealed a new team of British Superheroes, all the new heroes seem to be poor in quality of their design/concept and likely are just going to be jobbed against the mutant island cult in the 'war' that is going to happen.
>>422875 That should have been suggested when René Goscinny died. Uderzo was the illustrator and continued the series solo, but his writing was really poor and the solo volumes are widely considered to be worse, they range from mediocre to just plain dumb.
Uderzo already passed the baton to a new creative team who are doing pretty good books so far, so as far as I'm concerned the series should keep going.
