What is Motorcity? I've never heard of it !
Motorcity is a REALLY GOOD cartoon that aired on DisneyXD in 2012 that was tragically cancelled after 1 season, likely to a lack of viewership. The plot is a bit cliche: Detroit is taken over by an iron fist ruler who keeps his people in check with a big robot army, but a rebel society lives underground and their mission is to provide safety, freedom (and most of all: cool car privileges) to Motorcity.
If cool dudes driving fast cars doesn’t sell you, then check this out:
The animation was done by Titmouse studios (❤❤❤) and LOOK
that stuff is GORGEOUS
and does that artstyle look familiar? It should! Robert Valley of Gorillaz fame did the character designs!
And boy howdy don’t get me started on the backgrounds
they’re some if the best I’ve ever seen.
But hey, take the art away and what do you have? A really charming story of a family of heroes looking out for each other, fighting their demons, driving fast, and saving the world.
Now I don’t give a HECKDARN about cars but I can never fully express my love for the genuine charm the characters have, the jaw-dropping art, the unforgettable humor (see: threat level:texas)
and reid scott’s delicious voice. I can’t recommend it enough, especially to my animator friends!
