Things that Mario and Barley from Onward have in common:
They are both voiced by Chris Pratt
They have a younger brother who they look out for
They both drive a van with problems
Both live in a fantasy land (with mushrooms)
And both have been shrunken down to mouse size

The fact that Spongebob is still SO popular despite having been bad much longer than it’s been good is a testament to how good the first 3 seasons were.

Longtime Pixar employee Galyn Susman was fired last week as part of the Disney layoffs.
Susman famously salvaged Toy Story 2 after a Pixar employee inadvertently erased the whole movie off their servers.

Didn’t Iger say, “Grown-ups don’t care for animation?” Which kinda shows how out of touch he is…
Also, goes against Walt’s original advice that, “You’re dead if you aim your animation only at kids. After all, adults are just kids grown-up.”

I doubt that. So many jobs have been cut in the last several years thanks to the great Netflix correction that being experienced or respected in a studio is no longer an employment shield. People just expect this shit to happen now. Just last year Netflix decimated its animation unit and now they’re largely dependent on third-party fare to fill that hole (most of the people who brought Nimona to the streamer are gone now).
Cartoon Network doesn’t even have its own studio anymore thanks to Zaslav. The teams have all been intergrated into WB Animation and nearly all new ideas have been shelved for more IP shit. CN Studios exists in-name-only now. At least Pixar will (probably) still be around because, for the most part, Iger ain’t no Zaslav.
What’s noteworthy about these layoffs here is that they’re targeted largely at the staff that did Lightyear (Gusman included), which pretty much everyone agrees was a big Pixar misfire even if the movie was OK at best.

Sadly, I saw that coming years ago.
Over the time the productions have been losing audience so this situation honestly doesn’t even surprises me anymore.

I think Babs and Buster Bunny from Tiny Toon Adventures got their names from, respectively, the character from Animal House and Buster Keaton.
At least, that’s what I’d like to think.

Notoriously Divine Tagger - Consistently uploads images above and beyond the minimum tag requirements. And/or additionally, bringing over the original description from the source if the image has one. Does NOT apply to the uploader adding several to a dozen tags after originally uploading with minimum to bare tagging.

Explorer in Training
Technical question: Do toy based cartoons have less restrictions than original or superhero cartoons? I mean I’m sure the toy company has mandates that a show can never defy whereas at least with something like Teen Titans or Owl House they don’t have to worry about a toy company telling them what to do.
I guess I just wonder if MLP would be different if it were a completely original property.

I wonder what would happen to those that haven’t watched the Mario movie yet.
Hopefully jerks won’t start… being jerks. Like big deal. People don’t have to watch if they don’t want to, it’s their choice not yours. The movie is just whatever. You don’t let to like or watch it to be a fan. It’s just a stupid thing

It’s really well made on an artistic and technical level, it does its job appropriately. It’s not supposed to be super cerebral and deep with epic tear jerking moments, it’s supposed to be fun. The visual cohesion and the musical score makes it a gem to look at even if you’re not paying attention.
It’s like one of my favorite movies now. The new MLP movie is on that list, state of the art masterpieces.

Toy based ones typically have more restrictions, more so if they’re well known.
If MLP was an original property it probably would merely be slightly more mature. Like only to the degree that Sombra turning the Crystal empire into his slaves wouldn’t have been a fight with the suits and Faust wouldn’t have had to convince execs that Egghead wasn’t too much of an insult to include.
