Why People hate this
15 November 2008 | by prunes_wrinkly_sweetnessSee all my reviews

I have been looking through the comments and I am really confused why people seem to passionately hate this show. And all the reasons why people seem to hate it are not really explained well. Especially who ever TommypezMaster is. That was not even English. Only 3 comments had any inkling of reasons that were backed up. And I understand not liking a show and saying it's not for me but to go as far as saying I almost puked from watching is a bit irrational.

And for anyone who says this is one of the dumbest shows...I'm confused I thought that was the point of cartoons, to be dumb. What was 2 Stupid Dogs, Space Ghost, Ren and Stimpy, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Sponge Bob, Cow and Chicken? Did anyone learn anything from any of those shows? No but they all have a fan following. So for being stupid is not really saying much since stupid/toilet humor is generally excepted in these other venues.

I wonder what it is then these people are looking for in cartoons? I'm partial to many types of cartoons, ranging from Beast Wars, the ones I mentioned above, anime, King of the Hill, and older cartoons like boomerang stuff.

I regard cartoons in 3 categories There are cartoons that have really good writing, there are cartoons that have really good and controlled art, then there are cartoons that can do both. Of course then there are those that have none at all. Like Perfect Hair Forever, the writing and cartooning is atrocious but it will still make me laugh 3 in the morning...so there is that too.

Anyways this show has something a lot of cartoons don't have a character driven cartoon. It doesn't need plot when she's there. I tend to like characters that are not by any means cool yet they believe they are and never seem to stop loving themselves. Strangers with Candy is like that and so is Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion. Those are character's I can respect, so is Sponge Bob for that matter. It is also a show where the art, especially being flash is done by someone who knows what they are doing unlike Fairly Odd Parents which is good writing but awful cartooning.

Also someone mentioned something about it missing fluid animation. This person obviously knows nothing about cartoons or media. When it seems they are skipping frames it is on purpose it is to embellish the character's reaction to an event. Old cartoons from the golden age did this, now maybe it seemed better because they did have access to money. Cartoons today are stuck in limited Animation so it's noticed more. Only Avatar is somewhere in between limited and full. Limited animation takes better advantage of this trick in my opinion, look up Beany and Cecile cartoons and you can see it used masterfully.

Now what this cartoon maybe lacking, people seemed turned off by stereotypes and I'm not really partial to them either but they have their place. I mean Dexter's Lab was a extremely nerdy boy and extremely girly girl. The stereotypes were pretty strong. One episode they switch interests and Dexter likes the pony and she likes the tough guy stuff, this wouldn't be funny without stereotypes. Messing with stereotypes I think is much funnier. Another show full of stereotypes is Jimmy Neutron with a lot of the same ones from Dexter except he has 2 dumb friends where Mighty B has one. Not saying I support it I'm just trying to get people to think about what they are saying critically.

So my suggestion is for people who don't like this show instead of stating they don't like whatever plot that's going on. They state what the expect from cartoons personally and state why this cartoon isn't adding up to that standard, but also take a step back and think about what a cartoon is in the first place. If you are someone partial to Totally Spies or My Life as a Teenage Robot then I have real doubts you'll like this show.
