Sometimes I wonder if fans make animators loose sleep over little things. Like the fact we lost our shits over the fact Keith slept with shoes on. And the animators all saw this and went “shit we’ve done it now, we got to fix it”
so they go to the writers and have to ask for a specific scene to fix their error. Like “Oh my God, we need a scene with Keith in bed.”
“We need to take his shoes off. Please, for the love of God, for the fans. Give us this second chance to make things right.”
“Alright, I suppose we can make a random scene of him looking at his knife again-”
“YES LORD PLEASE, and we’ll take his shoes and fanny pack off. The fans will be so pleased. character development.”
And then when the episode finally airs they try to make a huge deal of it. Like, LOOK LOOK FANDOM WE TOOK HIS SHOES OFF. IS IT OKAY? HAVE WE DONE GOOD?
And then the fans either loose their shit over this development with them, or find something else about it to make a big deal about it.
