Germany: Pinky and the Brain While part of the Animaniacs technically, Pinky and the Brain took on their own being. A genius trying to take over the world with a plan but always having to stop and explain/save his idiotic companion….who does that sound like?
Japan: Voltron Robots saving the world and combining into a big robot, what else does Kiku need in a show? Besides the great art and story. That’s always essential.
Italy: Powerpuff Girls Guess which one Feli is? It’s not Blossom, and it is not Buttercup.
Good character writing is when a cartoon drops a random piece of trivia about a character on you that doesn’t really impact the show at all and the very first thing that comes to mind is “yeah that makes sense.”
Example (from Pinky and the Brain)
Pinky is pet-shop bred and bought. Brain is a wild-catch.

She literally became a vigilante to keep batman from destroying her villainous dad
Her dad is an asshole
Her mom tried her best
But not good enough that she turns to a man who dresses like a bat nightly for a parental figure
Imagine the batfam having a movie night
Literally her and babs being the only ones who aren’t adopted
Anyways so they’re watching some 90s live action Disney movie her and Dick picked out
And she starts talking about how she always wanted like a bedazzler hair gun or a Barbie dream house or a bike
And babs is shook
Steph tells them she made her own paper dolls out of cardboard and paper
Bitch made her own suit she is crafty
Dick is trying not to cry
Jason and Cass are sympathetic they had very little until they were adopted
Damian is just confused because he’s a murder cult prince and has had more than most successful adults his entire life
Bruce is litterLY HEARTBROKEN
The next day they all haul ass to the mall
Babs in the lead getting all the 90s inspired fashion stuff from Clair’s and JP and Macies like Barbie sweaters and printed leggings and 90s cartoon print everything and fucking leg warmers and scrunchies.
Dick in the lead with 90 to early 2000 toys getting her all the Barbie shit and like a hair braiding and bedazzling gun and like orbez spa foot bath and fun little outside toys like a bubble machine and those hotch skotch balls that you put on one foot and spin the ball as you jump. Too many water and nerf guns. Some of those are for the whole family.
A PURPLE BIKE WITH STREAMERS A BASKET AND A BELL
They put a batman sticker on it
They also buy a twister mat and box sets of the Amanda show, Drake and josh, rugrats, catdog, pinky and the brain, ducktales, Kim possible, Hannah Montana, zoey 101, fresh prince of bel air, friends, honey they get it all
They also get damian some batman toys because he was looking at them
He says he doesn’t want them
But they all mysteriously disappear anyways
Into his room
Cass and Tim drag Bruce for not giving Steph attention
Especially bc she I dunno gee DIED FOR HIM
Anyways Jason and Alfred are distracting her by making cute little batfam themed sugar cookies together
Then they come home with like two car fulls of 90s kids stuff
Jason takes her to Starbucks and they sit outside and talk shit about people passing by so they can set up her surprise party
Now Bruce is an emotionally constipated dad, but he’s still a dad. He still sees Steph as one of his children.
He feels really bad for not paying more attention to her living situation, especially when she was kid.
He pulls out all the stops. Her favorite food, her favorite movies.
Now, mama brown didn’t raise no bitch
But when she walks in and sees that Barbie dream house and that bike
She looses it
She’s crying and hugging everybody
Like she’s grown and doesn’t need any of that
But she makes it some aesthetic artsy deco shit
Except the clothes and nerf guns and box sets that’s becomes her everything
The bike is her new love she might’ve rode it inside the manor until Alfred was like ok stop
She’s so shook
Everybody is crying
Damian is just confused in his little batman target pajamas
Which also makes her extremely happy
She plays with her toys with everybody
They end up cuddling on the couch with Steph in Barbie sweater and those weird multiple shapes neon leggings and leg warmer and her hair in scrunchies
“Brown, you look disgraceful. I don’t understand any of this.”
“Shut up, demon. You’re not supposed to understand, it’s the 90s.”
Tim just silently pulls him into a cuddle and he’s too shook from the day to pull away
Steph is still crying and thanking everybody constantly
She’s snuggled into Bruce’s side.

The actor who plays Snuffles/Snowball just admitted he was recently treated for cancer
Rob Paulsen is my favorite voice actor so I had to say something. My heart sank when I saw the article but after reading it, it looks like he’s already recovering and working again. But he can no longer taste food and his saliva glands don’t work. He’s taking it like a chap because one of his favorite passtimes is visiting sick children in hospitals so he feels blessed to come out as well as he has.
Please shoot him some sweet words on twitter, he’s @ yakkopinky and he always has a sweet word for everyone. He’s the kind of person who makes you feel special and loved 3 seconds in to a conversation with him. I’ve met him twice and I hope to meet him again some day.
while it’s still april i wanted to make an autism acceptance post !
this post is a shoutout to every autist with a “weird”, “cringy”, and mostly otherwise unknown special interests – and i mean things that actually arent liked by tons of other people like minecraft and fnaf and undertale
im talking about all of you with special interests that no one’s heard about, that have little to no fan content, that are hard to get other people interested in hearing about let alone invested with you
i see you, i support you, and i think your special interest is wonderful and unique. you arent weird or embarrassing or boring, you are passionate and individual and that’s amazing!!
i encourage us all to celebrate each other’s niche special interests. i absolutely adore having seen all my friends speak so lovingly about their special interests and ive been introduced to so many fantastic new forms of media and information !
because the people around me have had the confidence to share their “strange” special interests ive had the joy to discover so many things ??? i never knew wordgirl existed but now i wish i’d watched PBS more as a kid. i’ve learned more about trains and betta fish than i ever thought i would ever. i’ve never thought more about the pixar cars movie, pinky and the brain, and snagglepuss in my whole life and i LOVE IT
ive heard great music, movies, art, and facts all over from the autistic people i follow all about their special interests that to most would be anything but special. i love seeing all of your care and passion and i hope that i never see that end.
