Have you ever wonder which Western Animation is obscure to you based to your observation?

I will forever shill Beesti. We've only got like 1.3 million citizens, and who knows how many of them watch the animations so I'd say these are quite obscure :p

There used to be a rough edit of the original version of the thief and the cobbler as Richard Williams intended without the ripping off of Aladdin. That would be the most obscure piece of western animation I am aware of

I would very much like to know how it is myself. The art style looks like the sort of early millennium action cartoons I grew up with so it's definitely tugging at the nostalgia strings.

A bit worrisome though that both presents as very ethnic and it's an Amazon original. They have quite the track record of "good" shows only staying good for a season or two before turning boring or pozzed.

I will probably avoid that show, I have heard that it is pretty woke.

Invincible is ok but it has woke moments.

Mark got changed to a korean-american (from what I see changes very little so why not keep him caucasian), race bent his girlfriend Amber to black (and she's kind of bitchy, don't know if that's in the comics too and/or this is case of rushed adaption), turned Mark's friend gay, redesigned Atom Eve's costume to be slightly less revealing around her waist (and if you look at her costume emblem it crosses out the female gender sign instead of being a atom mixed with the sign), had Mark call part the "superhero dream" of getting girls sexist.

That's what I'm aware of, can't be assed to care about watching it in full when these moments keep popping up.

Thanks for the heads up. Each of the changes you've described are enough to firmly place this into the "hard pass" bin. It's as if they made sure to hit every single point in the "how to force a series to be artificially diverse" handbook.

I don't care how good the story or animation may be (though judging from your post, it's nothing special). These sorts of transgressions against artistic integrity should never be condoned or supported.

You haven't watched a movie in years have you?
I can't be alone in this! Everyone treats me like I'm weird for it!

Aside from Knives Out, the two most recently made western films I've watched were The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, the former serving as the fatal stab wound and the latter the coup de grâce which finally killed what was once my favorite franchise of All Time.

So yeah, I'm not exactly vibing with western film at the moment. I still have plans to see both Joker and The Lighthouse though.

Edit: Corrected my original statement to specify "western" films, as I did watch and very much enjoy Parasite back in 2019.

That's a hard one, but it's probably an episode with Phil Hartman as a guest star; the man was a legend.

Favorite episode of the Simpsons?
In spanish they are called "The Magios" for some reason, I was surprised when I saw the english name, idk where they got the name, I guess stonecutters doesn't sound right in spanish

I've actual never seen an episode, but I heard it's available on Disney plus so I should probably get around to it. That being said I am looking forward to seeing Homers enemy because it received praise from one of my personal favorite youtubers.

Ever heard of Cartoons in Danganronpa? It takes a group of popular animated characters from Disney, Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon TV shows and puts them in the kill or be killed setting of Hope’s Peak Academy.

While genuine interest in Danganronpa ends with Mukuro for me, I’ve barely watched any of the cartoons in this series, and even the ones I know aren't exactly my favorite. (except for Invader Zim, I’ve only seen like 2 episodes but I love it.) I’m a sucker for crossovers and I wanted to see if you guys were interested as well.

Prologue part 1
Prologue part 2
Chapter 1 Daily Life

Just a heads up though, the creator ThatCheeseBastard has an infrequent upload schedule due to how long these episodes are so it could take a while before the next part arrives. If you hate waiting a large amount of time for a story to continue, maybe look elsewhere.

Personally not into crossovers but certainly looks that a lot of work went into it. :sayorifingerguns:
