What do you guys think about western animation?

The best were those shorts aimed to cinema audiences, before the massification of television. Most moderns animated western cartoon films are quite bland.

I'm fascinated by animation of all origins. I wish there was more available in languages other than English and Japanese, in fact.

Rocko's Modern Life, Ren & Stimpy, and Doug were all amazing cartoons.

The old Disney cartoons and the two Fantasia films(The first one is a masterpiece) are good.

All the animated shorts from WB(?) was extremely awesome

11 Name: Couch Potato : 2010-07-10 11:27 ID:gchup/bW

There were tons of great WB cartoons. Even as recently as Freakazoid, Animaniacs, and Tiny Toons. Of course Looney Toons was the best.

That video is unviewable due to copyright reasons which just points out how bad US copyright law is.

I like western animation a lot, actually. Most relatively modern (IE- made in the past 5-10 years) cartoons seem a little... bland to me, though. I dunno if it's just because I've grew bored of the medium as a whole, or if I was spoiled by my childhood (I grew up on stuff like DuckTales, Tailspin, Animaniacs, Ren and Stimpy, Rocko's Modern Life and Doug; to name a few).

That's not to say -all- modern cartoons are bland. Chowder and the Misadventures of Flapjack are alright, some of the more "serious" stuff like Ben 10 and Avatar : The Last Airbender is decent, too; but there seem to be fewer reasons for me to watch newer stuff on, say, Cartoon Network, when there are re-runs of some rather decent shows on channels like Boomerang.

Althgouh I like the show, I can't say it's "gorgeous".
I like the art style, but it's honestly really basic.

The Ed Edd N Eddy movie was amazing

>Western animation

...what Western Animation? Except for a handful of Disney full-length animated movies, (aesthetically pleasing) Western animation is practically non-existant.

Western kiddy cartoons, such as the already mentioned Doug, Red and Stimpy, Rocko, Adventure Time, Simpsons, etc., are completely dialog-driven and rely on a 22-minute barrage of jokes to hold the viewer's attention and are completely devoid of any aesthetic value. The characters are so completely stylized that they lack any resemblance to living beings; they are grotesque concatenations of geometric shapes more than anything.

In anime, a human actually looks like a human and that's what's important to me. I can't stand Western animation because all modern cartoons are pretty much comedies and I want to appreciate the artstyle and not the plays on words. If I wanted to appreciate dialog I'd read a novel or a play.

BOB's BURGERS is fun...

20 Name: Couch Potato : 2020-10-08 19:44 ID:LLMC+pDj

The She-Ra reboot is pretty good

>>18 I very much disagree.

Especially during the late 90s there were some very good series with complex plot and realistic art styles like the Spider-Man and X-Men cartoons of the time — Cargoyles also comes to mind as a rather complicated series.

It was animated in a realistic way with well-proportioned characters and the characters were complicated. I loved Xanatos as a “villain”, who, by design did not believe in revenge and treated villainly like “simply business, nothing personal”.

Plenty of so-called “anime” also uses nonrealistic proportions.

In terms of children's cartoons I think we were spoiled by Avatar the Last Airbender. Every one I've watched afterwards is not as good.

I thought that My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic had a decent run. The brony subculture is long since over but the early seasons are pretty good, I thought. They were just good, fun stories in a fantasy land though it really lost steam in the final few seasons.
