‘Cartoons aren’t what they used to be…’ is the usual ringing endorsement for the younger generations’ animation. We long for the classics that graced the Cartoon Network channel, such as; Dexter’s Laboratory, The Powerpuff Girls, and Cow and Chicken. So quick we are to sneer at the cartoons on offer nowadays. However, there are few gems to entice an older viewer, the likes of Regular Show, Adventure Time and The Amazing World of Gumball.
From its unique visual concoction of traditional animation, puppets, CGI, 8-bit sprites, or even live action (which is also used for the backdrop of the show), the show is defiantly a treat to watch. The visual textures add dimension and intrigue into a world filled with bright energetic oddball characters. »

When I was a kid I was a massive fan of the likes of Beavis and Butthead and Ren & Stimpy – two cartoons that, even though dubbed “cartoons”, were not really suitable for younger kids.The former show pushed the boundaries of acceptability, often using lewd humour to get it’s liberal point across (something which went over my head, I just liked the toilet humour); whilst the latter took the gross-out route: mixing toilet humour and horrible sight gags, at the same time taking satirical pot-shots at various aspects of society.
