It's always just anti capitalism/lgbtqaxyz/Anti white shit. Nothing else.You missed the point about nurturing children's minds, which is a euphemism for indoctrinating children's minds. Just like when they screech video games should be educational when what they really mean video games should push a certain political philosophy.
Except trendies are at least trying to preserve western civilization, while Tumblr peeps are trying to actively degrade their own culture.Just replace the Bible with Harry Potter books and televangelists/Joel Olsteen with Steven Universe, and the similarities become striking.
Thank you for pointing this out.This is probably just the autism talking, but whenever people like the above Twitter user write off toy-driven cartoons as worthless, mass-produced shlock, it feels kinda...rude? Like, I know virtually all of them are quite shallow and hastily put together, and the vision comes from a toy company executive rather than a passionate artist. That much is obvious. But you still need people to plan and create every aspect of the show, just as you would for a show that doesn't need to sell toys.
Shows like He-Man and Transformers were not fabricated by robots programmed to create cartoons that rot children's brains, they were made by people. People who probably wanted to do the best they could with what they were given to work with. Just because the show wasn't helmed by an artist with a specific creative vision doesn't mean it was made by people who didn't care.
Again, kind of an exceptional rant, but that's just something that always kinda bugged me. If you really want to talk about how much you hate toy-driven cartoons then aim it at the executive bigwigs who perpetuated the "cartoons are lowbrow kiddy fodder" mindset, don't take it out on the people who were just trying to do their job. Also lol at how that idiot labels nerds as "reactionary" when people like them immediately jump to the same tired, intentionally misrepresentative counterpoints literally every time one of those "lol angry nerds" controversies pops up. 'Cause why have an honest discussion about nostalgia and fandom entitlement when you can pwn an epic nerd strawman and get asspats from your Twitter echo chamber?
Well, honestly I probably don't dislike the show as much as most of the people here. Don't get me wrong, it has plenty of glaring flaws but over all I don't think it's all that bad. I like it better than the original at least, though that's not saying much. Though, that said I'm a lot more forgiving than most when it comes to animation if they can make a halfway decent story out of it.Do you think the show is smart enough to pull it off? Speaking of Glimmer, I find her hair kind of cute.
No shit. These people hate Baby Boomers and their parents but what they fail to realize is that they ARE them. They make the same mistakes in different ways and contexts, but overall it's the same thing. They're just doing what every generation of children has done for the last 60 or so years, they're rebelling. The irony is that they think that it makes them unique and their parents and the baby boomers think they're so different too, but that's only because they can't see the bigger historical significance. They're simply playing the roles society has told them they were meant to play. A product of society in which people have forgotten how to think for themselves and evaluate their thoughts.Just replace the Bible with Harry Potter books and televangelists/Joel Olsteen with Steven Universe, and the similarities become striking.
Assuming a "dude" made this because a woman couldn't make these designs, a sexist MAN who can't stand the idea of lesbians or girls he finds personally unattractive must have, I see.
Because they hate healthy women's bodies and think that even hinting at the fact that a woman has a figure is the same as them parading around in lingerie.Weird how modestly clothed women is somehow the same as Kill la Kill.
Seriously, how can you look at this pic and immediately think “FANSERVICE”?
It’s bizarre how hateful people have become of the female form. I actually remember seeing someone praise a show for drawing the women without any hips or breasts.Because they hate healthy women's bodies and think that even hinting at the fact that a woman has a figure is the same as them parading around in lingerie.
What kid's show/cartoon didn't in the 80s and 90s? As someone else pointed out, a number of these franchises had separate comic universes -- some of which existed before the TV show -- meaning the toys predated the show. Unfortunately, social media spergs and shills consider facts, logic, and reason as dirty words and online hate speech and they seem to think commercialism is the ultimate moral sin. I wonder how they'd spin it if nuShe-Ra were to start producing action figures contrary to their collective anti-patriarchy, anti-capitalist mindset?Okay, so the shows I liked as a kid were used to sell toys? So what?
It's probably safe to say that any cartoon of the era had episodes that were clunkers or widely panned and they likely were produced as quickly as the voice actors and writing/animation staff could crank them out. However, everyone involved largely enjoyed what they did and tried to make the most of the experience. Heck, voice actors performing characters whose traits are different than their own likely had to work harder than usual to portray those characters properly and plausibly -- something that helped them grow in their careers.Yes, these shows were made in factory like settings and fast paced environments to make the content, and it was done with censors looking over their shoulders and limitations in animation, but there was clearly thought and effort put in.
Not every cartoon that had the required moral of the day at the end had one that tied into the episode's events (MASK comes to mind), but the point that not everything about 80s cartoons was focused exclusively on toy sales & promotion still stands.Including a cheesy "lesson of the day" requires you to sit down and construct a story where that lesson can be relevant - not to think of what new toy you can sell.
Funny thing is, Nu She-Ra toys actually do exist.I wonder how they'd spin it if nuShe-Ra were to start producing action figures contrary to their collective anti-patriarchy, anti-capitalist mindset?
