cartoons that could get it

can I just Rant for a second here

Spiderman: Homecoming is so redeeming for me. 

A lot of people grew up on Captain America, or Iron Man. I was that little period in between that was a bit too late for Cap, and a bit too early for Tony. I grew up on Spiderman. I watched every show I could get my hands on, cartoons, kids shows, movies, I read comics. Spiderman was my superhero, especially when I was a preteen and I needed someone like that, someone who was like me. Spiderman was like me. He is the epitome of a teenager. I mean, you just have to look at his one-liners to see it. Things like that came out of me and my brother’s mouth daily, and then I see a hero doing the same thing. Spiderman was MY hero. 

I’ve already told you I watched the movies. Tobey Macguire’s Spiderman first came out in 2002, I was too young to watch it. So I knew the comics, the cartoons, all of Peter’s origins and villains and backstory, before I watched his films. I’m going to preface this by saying I only watched half of the first one. But it was SO disappointing. 

What makes Spiderman a hero, to me, is not his powers. Anyone could be mutated and decide, “hey, I’m going to deal with this” or “hey, I should get this checked out”. Peter didn’t do that, because he already wanted to be a hero. His powers didn’t make him a hero. He was a hero before. Spiderman is not about his powers. But that’s what 2002 Spiderman did. They took away Peter’s intelligence, made him little more than a comic relief. His intelligence is an integral part of Peter. He made his own webshooters, they aren’t a part of his powers. That, that right there shows you how much of a hero he is. Because yeah, he can climb on walls and use super strength, but when you think of Spiderman, you don’t think of those, you think of his webs. Those are his weapons, and they don’t hurt anyone, and I swear to god if that doesn’t show you how much Peter is a hero, you’re looking at him wrong. And so there’s no better way to show you how much 2002 messed up Spiderman than the fact that the webs are part of his powers, that he had them and didn’t make them. They took away his intelligence, his ingenuity, and that is what Peter IS. They turn him nothing more than ridiculous, and it was so crushing.

Peter is brilliant. He’s an amazing scientist, in the cartoons he often has internships as well as being a photographer, and he made his own webshooters. In CACW, Tony fucking Stark is impressed with the webshooters. He’s amazed, Tony Stark is amazed, at what Peter made. Peter works with a box of scraps and creates amazing things. He doesn’t fight with brute force, he strategizes, which is what makes the webs work for him as a weapon. 

On another note, Andrew Garfield’s 2012 film I saw in theaters when it came out. I was just 13, and idolized Spiderman, because he was one of us. I was disappointed that he was not in highschool (and by this I mean, I understand that they claimed Peter and Gwen were in highschool, but I’m sorry, Andrew and Emma don’t pass off as highschoolers. If they were going to completely invalidate the identity like that, they should have just set it in college. I never was able to fully immerse myself in the story and believe that Peter was in highschool, and he had so much freetime that it was even more unbelievable that he was a highschooler), because to me the fact that Peter has to balance his classes, part-time job, and crimefighting just once again shows his absolute dedication and brilliance and is an incredibly important aspect of his character, but it was fine. The 2012 film was much better than the 2002 film, but I still disliked it; it left me unsatisfied. Peter’s character was more true to form, but the movie itself was done badly and, I felt, focused too much on a romance for an origin story that (spoiler alert!!) didn’t even pan out. I understand that the movie was simply a set up for a series (that didn’t even work out well), but it was still incredibly disheartening. Perhaps the worst part was the fact that he WASN’T a highschooler, because I felt like they were invalidating teenagers and an important part of my identity at the time. I think the fact that Peter is a teenager is incredibly influential over his entire character, and the way he fights and speaks.  But I was also incredibly disappointed that they didn’t even stay true to Peter’s origin story!! Who is the Lizard? Where was Harry?

Back to Spiderman: Homecoming. I was so ecstatic when they included Spiderman in CACW. I was even more excited when they released who would be playing him. Finally, Peter is a teenager played by someone who can pass off as an actual teenager. Finally, he is back to his brilliant roots (”I can’t” “Why not?” “I have homework…”). It is so redeeming. Everything that was incredibly important to Peter’s character which has been taken away in the past is back.

He’s an awkward teenager, but still incredibly brilliant. He has trouble with communication. Aunt May and school are important to him, just as important as saving people (Not the world. PEOPLE). He’s not afraid to stand up to someone, even if they’re someone he believes in and looks up to (examples: see CACW). He banters during fights but is still badass. He’s fascinated by things he doesn’t understand, willing to learn. He tries too hard. He is a teenager, in every sense of the word. 

I’m most looking forward to Tony’s role in Homecoming. Because Peter is exactly like Tony. He is an innovator, an inventor. He’s brilliant, too brilliant for his own good, and has been alienated for it. He lost his parents young, but has a few good friends. And he believes in people. Like Tony, he doesn’t want to save the world. He just wants to save people. He believes that people are important. That’s why he’s a hero – that’s why Tony’s a hero. Neither one of them could give it up, because they can’t give up on people. They’ll fight for people, just as much as they’ll fight for what they believe in. There are so many parallels between them, and Tony saying “I wanted you to be better” told me that he sees them to. I am so excited to see that relationship. 

I am incredibly hopeful for Spiderman: Homecoming, and I hope it does Peter the justice none of the other movies have. 

Black Cartoon Characters On Television

I’ve been seeing the posts regarding black cartoon characters on television. I’m a bit disappointed that I didn’t see Lt. Commander Claudia Grant of the Robotech Macross Saga.

It was the very first time that I saw a black cartoon character on tv that wasn’t just a token. She was fleshed out and intelligent. Claudia was third in command of a spaceship and was grace under pressure personified. And…

She had a man! I was too young to appreciate this at the time. Claudia could have been stripped of her sexuality like a lot of shows do to black female characters but the Japanese creators saw differently. Lt. Commander Grant was engaged to Commander Roy Fokker, ace pilot and leader of the Skull Squadron that helps defend Earth from alien invaders. Claudia could have been a black woman who “don’t need no man” but one of the best and shocking scenes of the entire story is when Roy pulls her into bed for some hanky-panky. It’s implied yet you CLEARLY know what’s about to happen. 

Claudia and Roy were also the first and only interracial pairing I’ve seen in animation and keep in mind that this was in 1985. If I remember correctly there was some pressure to omit their relationship when the Robotech series was adapted for American audiences. Again, I’m wondering how Japan could get it so right while America could get it so wrong. 

Announcement to all future cartoons with cannon gay characters.

Another one! I really had fun with this :D

I think I should keep doing these… 

the fact that gay and lesbian couples are so casually shown in cartoons and kids’ videogames now just blows my fuckin mind in the best possible way.

Like some of you are pretty young, you probably grew up with awesome shows like Adventure Time, Gumball, and Steven Universe. You may not understand what a HUUUGE NO-NO that was as little as 10-15 years ago. If you made a cartoon and you wanted gay characters in it, you could only get away with it by making them a big offensive joke with no real characterization.

The only cartoon I remember from my childhood that had actual positive gay representation was Hey Arnold. Mr. Simmons, Arnold’s teacher, was a gay man who desperately wanted his family to accept his partner. This was highlighted in a Thanksgiving episode. I caught on to the fact that he was gay because I had gay relatives, but a lot of kids didn’t catch it because back then, having a gay character was considered really “obscene” or “inappropriate” and the writers had to be reeeaally subtle about it by calling the partner Simmons’ “special friend” or something like that. Even that was considered pretty controversial at the time.

Rugrats also tried to be as liberal as the executives would allow. The show encouraged feminist ideals and even had a couple episodes dedicated to the concept that it was okay for boys to wear dresses and girls to wear pants. Hell, I think there was even an episode that said it was okay to be naked and you don’t have to be ashamed of your body no matter what you look like. Stuff like that was really progressive at the time.

Like I come from a time where it was normal for people to keep their kids from watching Sesame Street–the most inoffensive show on earth–because Ernie and Bert “seemed” too gay and it was “corrupting the youth” or some bullshit. Now we have lesbian space ladies and princesses, agendered goldfish, and shit don’t even get me started on all the characters in Undertale–which is now considered the top game of 2015. And all of this is just presented to kids so casually now and I’m so happy.

Jay’s princess being liked by a boy!

Artist: Jay Park

Parker’s Family themed

You and your daughter Jae eun were siting at sofa in the living room while you were helping her with her reading assignment. Parker had already finished all him homework way faster than Jae eun so he was enjoying the rest of the evening playing video games in his bedroom, but here you were sitting trying to get her to finish her assignment but shes was being a little playful.

“Okay baby pay attention over here” you called out to her trying to get her to focus, but shes been at this assignment for a while and was getting bored of it. 

“If you finish now you can have a snack and watch your favorite cartoon later on” you said and you could already see her getting excited that she quickly started doing her readings.

After a while and after you had finished Jae eun with her homework you heard the front door open and close, and after a while you saw your husbands face come to view with a smile on his face. You were so happy to see Jay trying his best to come home earlier to spend more time with you and the kids. 

“Daddyyy” you heard Jae eun shout next to you leaving her plate of fruits on the table and went running to Jay. 

“Hey there princess” 

“I missed you daddy” she said pouting even thought she saw him in the morning.

“I missed you more baby, what were you doing” he said and carried her to go and sit on the couch to join you, in which he leaned forward and kissed you. 

“Eating apple and strawberry” she said cutely with her accent that she still had.

“What a good girl you are” he said and kissed the top of her head in which she beamed happy to be praised. 

You guys were just sitting around enjoying each others company, and plus Jae eun telling you all about her day in kindergarten in which brought something that shes been meaning to tell Jay and was waiting until he got home.

“Daddy daddy, I want to show you something” she said

“What is it baby” he asked, she got off his lap and when to her school bag in which she had by the door for tomorrow, Jay was really wondering what she had this time. She came back with a red card and chocolate in her hand.

“Min-sung gave this to me” she said excited to be talking about her friend

“Whaaat, and whos that” Jay said totally changing his expression wondering who is this boy that has his daughters attention, and also after he read what the card said with all those hearts drawn on it.

“The boy in my class” she said 

“And why did he give you that” he asked further more

“Because he said he likes me” she said giggling and as if its obvious. You were just sitting back watching all the scene happen, it was super cute how Jay was super protective over his little girl.

“Baby you can’t do that” 

“Why not daddy” 

“Because your a princess and princesses don’t talk to boys like that, they can only be friends” he said and you could see her pouting. She looked at you wanting to confirm what Jay was saying is true and that hes not playing with her like always, you saw Jays looking at you with his eyebrows raised waiting to see what you would say, but you nodded anyway because she was too young for stuff like that.

“But daddy you love mommy” she said trying her luck to get him to change his mind.

“Because mommy is a queen” 

“I wanna be a queen too” she said

“You will be when you grow up” he said and again she looked at you waiting for confirmation in which you nodded again smiling at her cuteness. After a while of silence Jae eun spoke again her mind

“Daddy i’m a princess, do you still love me” she said worried, in which made you both die laughing at how adorable she was being. 

“Of course baby, I love you so so much” he said said which made her smile.

“Because your such a good girl, I will pick you up from school and we will go for ice cream okay” he said

“yaaaay” she said jumping in his lap

“Now give daddy a kiss” he said perking his lips waiting for her to kiss him and she said. 

“Where you going baby” he asked her when she got off his lap

“Mommy too” she said and got onto your lap to also give you a kiss

“Your so sweet baby” you said while you held her in your embrace loving the affection she was giving you. 


I know I barely mentioned Parker in this, and that’s because I wanted to keep the attention more on Jae eun for this scenario, but of course I will include him when I write other Parker family scenarios.

My entry for the chapter 3 fanart contest!

This is cringe and would never happen, I know
Not gonna win, but this was fun! First time drawing Bendy digitally!

But like, if this was an episode of the cartoon, I would love it, because it could be Bendy running from this wave all episode, very comically, and doing ridiculous cartoon things. Boris could make a cameo, and he gets caught up in the wave mess with Bendy in the end, Alice saves them. I know it’s cringe, but I want to write that badly.

Thoughts on a pansexual Ford?

Anythings possible, I’m sure he had to have done it with some alternate dimension beings who I assume would have different genders than our dimensions. Whether he’s pansexual or anything else I don’t know. But it is a cartoon so unless it gets outright stated I’m sure you could make him whatever you want:)

anonymous asked:

GIMME SOME DIRT ON BENDY

¯\_(ツ)_/¯  Dunno what to tell you. He pull pranks and other kinds of harmless mischief. The first time he did something that kinda harmed someone, he instantly regretted. Plus, he is a cartoon demon. You could get a lot of clues if you read in between the lines there.

He purposely pisses Joey off, because why the hell not?

Gratsu week :
day 2: Heart


Ok this one has an AU-ish side to it so the idea is that once you are in love with someone you can give them your heart and if it turns out they love you too you can make half of your hearts fuse together and then BAM your other half is always there with you . And so at the beginning of the thing Gray is refusing to fuse their hearts together because he is being secure . Everyone have beautiful hearts and Gray’s is so ugly and black and Natsu deserves better 

I still have 2 thumbs. I tried to sleep, finally zonked out around 6am and woke up just after 7.

My body and mind are demented. If I didnt get to nap later when my system gives up, I’d be in trouble. Im going to goto Walgreens for some stuff and maybe the store then sleep and watch tv. If its nice out I might walk and shoot some photos.

But mostly sleeping.

I remember as a young kid, on Sat mornings I could not wait to get up to watch cartoons. Then as a teen, I got up early to get baked and watch cartoons. Then as a 20 something, I got up early to get baked and watch cartoons. Then in my 40s I got up early to go bike ride.

Now almost 50 I just want to ducking sleep in. Is that too much to ask?

The questions I ask myself when deciding on college classes:
1. Do I need to take it?
2. Is the teacher fun or inattentive (could I get away with drawing cartoons during class?) 
3. Will they make me write essays?
4. Will the teacher decide my stance on said essay?
5. No seriously, I hate essays.
6. I don’t care if it’s a pre-requisite to graduate! I’m not writing an essay! I will leave RIGHT NOW if you even mention an annotated bibliography!!!

I’m loving samurai jack season five. Not only is it because a show I watched when I was younger came back on, but because it’s a lot more dark than any other western cartoon I have ever seen. Like western cartoons only have two categories humor or kids show. With season of samurai jack feels like in a way it could transform western cartoons and expand it, if it succeeds. And we could get more shows like this but who knows

Dear lord… Steven just said “Kill.” As in, “There’s lots more Gems out there than we thought, and I think they want to… Kill me?”

Compare this to Avatar: The Legend of Korra, which had people die in fights… but they could only say “Eliminated.”

Pretty sure Cartoon Network lets SU get away with anything it wants.
