What if—-
I loved the idea of Prompto betraying his friends way more than I thought I would. A comic inspired by this comic over here! I took a crack at using screentones this time instead of just the standard black and white cell shadding and I fell in love with this! Man, one day, one day, I’ll take another crack and maybe write up a story board for some Promptis doujins.

Top 10 Blacklisted Cartoons

#10. My Knight and Me: Cartoon Network’s first new show of the year takes us to a land of  knights, dragons and wizards. Sounds like my kind of show, right? WRONG!!!! While I do like fantasy and tales of old folklore, Cartoon Network has already shown us that they fail to do interesting concepts the justice they deserve. Long gone are the days of Powerpuff Girls, Samurai Jack, Courage the Cowardly Dog and Ben 10 where concepts were executed brilliantly and became classics. Now we get shows like We Bare Bears, Long Live The Royals and Mighty Magiswords where good concepts turn into wasted potential. Judging by the trailer alone, you can tell it’s just another addition to the steaming pile of poorly executed concepts; the character design looks terrible, the humor doesn’t work and it looks as formulaic as your average Stupid Sitcom. 

#9. Brickleberry: Comedy Central is notorious for making lazy knock offs of popular shows; Legends of Chamberlain Heights is a rip off of South Park, Ugly Americans is basically China, IL, and Brickleberry is clearly every Seth MacFarlane show ever made. From the fowl mouth bear, to the generic setting, all the way down to the character design, this show screams lazy and unoriginal. It also doesn’t help that critics ripped this show a new one and we already know “adult” cartoons these days are just stupid, immature kids shows that are allowed to swear and make as many sex and drug jokes as they want instead of, you know? Treating its audience like actual adults >:(

#8. Dawn of the Croods: DreamWorks Animated shows range from decent at best to downright terrible at worst (with the exception of Dragons and Dinotrux of course). The Mr. Peabody and Sherman show was their absolute worst; it was so bad that I skipped Dawn of the Croods when it came out. But that’s not the only reason why this show is on this list; in fact, I was tempted to just check out the first episode to see if I misjudged it. Then, on November 11, 2016, it happened; DreamWorks pulled the plug on The Croods 2. Now, instead of a sequel that would fix the problems of the original, we’re stuck with a shitty spin-off that makes the original look like cinematic genius. FUCK THAT AND FUCK YOU DREAMWORKS!!!!!! >:(

#7. Chozen: FX’s most popular and so far only cartoon, Archer, is one of the better cartoons made for adults. The main character is funny, but the animation is stilted and the supporting characters aren’t as memorable. Not bad, but not something I want to see another show done in a similar style. But FX said “Fuck that noise” and made Chozen, the Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping made 2 years before and animated in Archer’s style. Seriously, who the hell thought that this animation style could apply to any show outside of Archer? It took me years to finally watch Archer only because the main character had the best jokes; Chozen doesn’t have that quality, therefore it’s just another “adult” cartoon. No fucking thank you -.-

#6. Shnookums and Meat: The minute I heard Mr. Enter call this a Ren and Stimpy clone MADE BY DISNEY, I was like “Are you fucking serious?!” Don’t get me wrong, Disney, as great as it is, has had their fair share of fuck ups (list coming soon), but to stoop so low as to copying the success of one of Nickelodeon’s best shows? I couldn’t believe it and I refuse to see it to believe it. I can accept Pickle and Peanut as a mistake, but Shnookums and Meat? That’s not a mistake, that’s a disaster!

#5. Moonbeam City: Another Comedy Central “adult” cartoon that not only looks generic, but also looks so appalling. It’s bad enough that we have a show where every character is yellow for no Goddamn reason, now we have a show where everyone’s white for now Goddamn reason. HOW THE HELL IS THAT ANY BETTER????!!!!!! Characters being 1 specific color isn’t creative; it’s boring! The show is supposed to be a parody of buddy cop movies; problem is, that parody already exists. It’s called 21 Jump Street, you know? With Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill? Got rave reviews, a sequel and a crossover with Men In Black in the works while this one died on arrival? Yeah, that’s the parody I plan to see while Moonbeam City can go fuck itself >:(

#4. Bunsen Is a Beast: Really Hartman? Really Hartman?! REALLY HARTMAN????!!!!!! This is your next project after T.U.F.F. Puppy, Danny Phantom and the living corpse that is The Fairly Oddparents?! Oh no, instead of bringing Danny Phantom back for some new adventures, we get Teacher’s Pet staring Adam Lyon from My Gym Partner’s a Monkey. Seriously, it’s Teacher’s Pet, it has a blue anthropomorphic character for Christ’s sake! I’d expect this from some dude Nickelodeon hired, but not the guy who made one of my favorite Nickelodeon shows >:(

#3. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs (2017): Despite being a bit formulaic, the Cloudy movies were still energetic, funny and wonderfully crafted family films. They planned a tv series, but I thought it didn’t get off the ground because audiences have moved on from the Cloudy franchise. I thought wrong! Cartoon Network is going to release this show on their channel soon and judging by the trailer, it looks terrible. The designs of the character look like a poor man’s imitation of their original designs from the movie, it lacks the humor that made the franchise memory and it carries the biggest flaw off the movies into the writing and shows no sign of improving it. I would’ve been find if this show never got off the grown; now I’m sitting her wishing it didn’t >:(

#2. Ben 10 (2017): I’ve already explained why I won’t see this show, so I’ll keep it brief. After the catastrophe that was the Powerpuff Girls reboot last year and the clip Cartoon Network posted on their YouTube page, any chance of this show being something to look forward to was shattered to pieces. 

#1. Futurama: It’s no secret that I hate The Simpsons and everything they stand for. The one aspect of the show I particularly can’t stand is the design of the characters. Why do people like this design? It looks absolutely terrible and disgusting. The creator apparently identifies himself with this design and uses it in his second show, Futurama. I’ve heard people praise, reference and parody this show ever since I was a kid and yet I never brought myself to watch it and I NEVER will. Not just because of the design of the characters, but the last time I watched an adult cartoon that was universally praised, I ended up sitting there frustrated and dumbfounded as to how a terrible, unfunny and poorly written show got a standing ovation. Futurama looks like it’s going to be just that and I refuse to let history repeat itself.

Conclusion: I get that some of the cartoons on this list have there fans; and there’s no shame in that. You’re not wrong for liking any of these shows, this is just my opinion. These shows bring up so many red flags for me that I just can’t bring myself to watch even a second of these shows. What’s a cartoon you blacklisted? Tell in the comments of this post; thanks for reading and I’ll see you next time.
