“Cartoons shouldn’t be low effort just because they’re for kids, because kids are smarter than you think and can understand complex themes!”.
I think if anything, people OVERESTIMATE how smart kids are. Little kids are kind of dumb, honestly. They’re always doing stupid things and getting themselves hurt.
I also think people overestimate kids’ taste in entertainment. How else do you explain Peppa Pig being so popular?

Yeah, especially the ones full of fart jokes…
I mean I can appreciate poopy vulgar humor sometimes, but some adult shows go to overboard, and get kinda childish with it. Like a kid who giggles when he hears the word “boobie.”
Like honestly, I thought “Space Ghost Coast to Coast” was much better adult humor before it started adding cussing, and random vulgarity like Zorak pissing on SG’s head.
Vulgar humor has to have timing, and some surprise to work.
To quote Groucho Marx in “Duck Soup,” if you’re going to tell a dirty joke, you have to know how to tell it.

Yeah, similarly most prefered “Ren & Stimpy’s” kid show over the later adult incarnation, because the original was already vulgar enough, and it was interesting to see what humor they could get away with.
The adult version with no restraint became honestly uncomfortable to watch. Especially, “Ren Seaks Help.”
Not saying all adult animation is bad, I like stuff like “Superjail,” and “Aqua Teen,” so I’m no prude.
It just depends on how it’s done.

All In (Amphibia) was quite… outstanding.
Marcy Wu definitely mauls Mabel Pines in regards to “how did they handle a false fantasy land where it’s exactly what they hope for.” She ultimately had the Wit to see through it, see it for what it was.
Andrias is probably one of my favorite villains, very interesting mindset to me. I really liked how his rematch with Anne was more than fighting, but also in a philosophical sense. The way it ended… it hurt. So bittersweet. I rationalize him being that way with Marcy in TC as it being him trying to tell himself “she’s just like Leif, so she deserves these consequences,” but in the end, he couldn’t stop caring, despite himself. Kind of surprised about him being a cyborg, but not entirely. He saw himself as having come too far, done so many horrible things… so he listened to Leif. He opened his heart, and let Anne (Heart) tear through him, so he’d be forcibly stopped. Keith David did an outstanding job in selling his emotional scenes. It really recontextualizes things when it was revealed the Core wanted him to immediately kill Marcy, but he talked it into the “Drain their power using the Temples which are a way to pass on the responsibilities of that power, get the Box” plan.
Darcy/the Core was pretty damn brutal, to literally cut off Grime’s arm (he pushed Sasha out of the scythe’s way) and make a “disarmed” joke about it, and it cut Sasha in the back. The damned hivemind’s supreme lack of empathy (not truly capable of understanding what makes others tick beyond a surface level) and brutal sadism was its downfall
Sasha was a badass, through and through, the way she pushed on, through her injuries and pain, to finish it.
…there really was a lot to take in on that one.
I can appreciate how I once expected Belos from The Owl House to be a more sympathetic villain, being well-intentioned on some level, compared to Andrias, but I was proven spectacularly wrong in a compelling way on both counts, with Belos being so thoroughly twisted on every level, and Andrias being a full-blown tragic villain, given all the context.
Definitely interested to see how it ends; pulling a repeat of SVTFOE’s last season seems nigh-impossible at this point.

I highly doubt Amphibia’s finale would be kinda rushed since it was planned for 3 seasons from the start.
Owl House on the other hand, I’m worried it will end up badly since Disney shortened the season and then cancelled it after 3 seasons.

Thanks to Turning Red, I now have a better appreciation for red pandas, Canada and Chinese culture/food.

A little off topic, but wanna hear something funny? When I was little, before I saw what a red panda actually looks like. I thought they were just a red colored giant panda.

In the context of the movie, the Rescue Rangers are just a tv show. It’s trying to be a meta Roger Rabbit thing. So, not exactly reboot, but not really a comeback either.

NGL, I actually cried in Turning Red when 4Town and the crowd sang “Nobody Like U” to start the ritual.
