You know, I find it really amazing how modern children’s cartoons can get so dark. 

To prove my point, let’s compare a light scene to a dark scene from some modern cartoon children’s shows:

Star Vs. The Forces of Evil:

Light:

Dark: 

Steven Universe:

Light: 

Dark:

Adventure Time:

Light: 

Dark:

Over The Garden Wall:

Light:

Dark:

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic:

Light:

Dark: 

The Amazing World Of Gumball:

Light:

Dark:

Regular Show:

Light:

Dark:

Gravity Falls:

Light:

Dark: 

See how dark some modern children’s cartoon shows can get? 

It’s just so fucking amazing. 

Discovering a new show...

Normal People: Hey, this looks interesting.

Me: Oh look, another fandom to sell my soul to.

Asami Sato & Avatar Korra - The Legend of Korra- Bisexual

Marceline & Princess Bubblegum- Adventure Time- Bisexual

Sheriff Blubs & Deputy Durland- Gravity Falls- Gay

Thea & Edie- Doc McStuffins- Lesbians

Pearl- Steven Universe- Lesbian

Ruby & Sapphire- Steven Universe- Lesbians
