This Black Velma thing is getting crazy backlash.
-Self insert (what art isn’t a self insert)
-Ripping on the fans (A lot of the most popular series of our time do this)
-Changing a characters race (why is this an issue? Black Velma is hot, Black Shaggy is funny, just seeing a simmilar character slightly altered through different race and cultural context is cool. Shaggies personality is universal)
There is a lot of reasonable, and complicated reasons not to like this. I don’t think it’s that serious though. The world is just on edge about everything right now, and the series missed it’s mark.
My defense for the backlash is that some people just want things to stay the same. Especially classic cartoons. Even the darkest route where we assume it’s about race? Wanting a character to stay racially consistent does not implie malice to another race. Wanting to date a certain race doesn’t imply malice either.
I could somehow be racist here. There could be some social issue i’m not taking seriously, just because I think black velma is cute. She’s not actually black, she’s indian, but it doesn’t matter, and ‘black velma’ is the term you’re going to be hearing.
People say that cartoon characters are disproportionaly white, I somewhat agree, but I know why. Animation is a trade that exploded in white culture. White people helped teach animated cartoon production to Japan, to help repair war damages. Japanese people not only have white skin themselves, but Japanese cartoonist are more likely to take from western culture than other japanese artist.
I hope we get more cartoons that enter the lives of more minority indivuduals, and I hope we get more cartoons that are topical and smart. But I can read the room, this Velma series is a complicated fuckup. A lot of people lost their jobs over it, probably thinking it was going to be a hit, I feel bad for them.

@Beth
I can explain the reasonable one.
-Corporation treat certain characters as shields from critique or a distraction from the shady stuff such as worker abuse, actors going crazy, union busting or union infecting.
  • “mature” stuff and how it handled- Most people think that just slapping nudity, sex, violence, and gore and call when in reality it’s all about how you use those elements in a story be it minor or major. Same with certain subject matter such as death, loss, health, discrimination, abuse while trying to fit it in the story. For example Chicory: A colorful tale handled the topic of Impostor Syndrome through the story, game play and bosses. Fillmore episode has several episodes where they handle different topic- Fame, addictions, grief, acceptance, police corruption, revenge, etc. Fillmore episode 1-To Mar a Stall
    -race swapping characters by Hollywood has been done to put in little effort of trying to get that character popular. It also done to use the drama and the harassment as a way to advertise the product and to paint themselves in the “good’ guys in the story. The race swap in the live action little mermaid is one where hollywood took advantage of the actor’s harassment.

The race changes don’t bother me about the show, im fine with ppl making the gang whatever race they want.
Im just annoyed that it’s a Scooby-Doo product that doesn’t have Scooby-Doo in it :/

@northern haste
Wonder what happened to the “Tetris” movie announced nearly a decade ago.
@Darth Prime
@Dr_Osaka
I think StarFox should be a little more serious then “Guardians of the Galaxy,” but that would be cool.
I could see it having some in-jokes like Peppy Hare saying his most famous line at some point.

No joke. Back in 2016 they announced a trilogy of “sci fi epic” Tetris films. It never happened (Thankfully).

Umbreon is best Pokemon!
Wasn’t there a Flash series of a stickman dodging and fighting Tetris blocks? It’s obvious the idea was done already.

So apparently the “puppy dog eye” thing isn’t just a coincidence. During domestication from wolf to dog they developed an eyebrow muscle specifically to emulate human expression to better bond.
Dogs really are Good Boys.

My best friend asked me for the script of that leaked Powerpuff show, so I sent it to him, and for whatever reason I decided to take a gander through it again to see if it’s aged any better a year later.
Spoiler alert: It hasn’t.

@Thanotos Omega
Gods, what they did to Utonium pissed me off so much.
@Just Wayne
Well, Warner hasn’t had a good idea in years, so probably.
Having read back on the script, it only takes six pages before there was unnecessary sexualization of one of the girls. Technically five pages, if we don’t count the opening title page.
Utterly shameless.
