Applejack: So Twi built a flamethrower wieldin’ robot pony because Sunset Shimmer said she couldn’t.

Sunset: I did NOT tell her to add a flamethrower to it! I just didn’t believe that she would actually build a fully autonomous robot pony. I didn’t even know that was possible.

Applejack: So why’d she add a flamethrower to it?

Sunset: She has a very powerful inner child.

Nicktoon/Animation Study with Third Graders

I did a little study with the third grade class I was helping out with the other day.

First, I asked them what they thought of the current Nicktoons.

SpongeBob Squarepants and The Fairly OddParents got extremely positive reception amongst the kids (though they actually seem to prefer FOP)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was right behind the first two- a lot of the kids love it.

Sanjay and Craig was pretty mixed. A few kids liked it, some of them hated it, and the others thought it was just “okay”.

Nobody really cared about Rabbids Invasion.

As soon as I even said the word “Breadwinners”, I got a collective groan so loud that I felt like I was in a Peanuts special. Yeah, the kids REALLY hate that one.

None of the kids seemed interested in The Legend of Korra, but it also turned out that virtually none of these kids really watched Avatar: The Last Airbender, so it’s justified.

After I did that, I asked the kids what other Nicktoons they liked that I didn’t mention. Most of them seemed to really like:

Rugrats (Seemed to be the most popular)
Hey Arnold!
CatDog
Invader Zim
ChalkZone (I wasn’t sure how many kids would know this show since it ended when these kids were born and the repeats were on in early morning timeslots, but I came in wearing my Rudy t-shirt and a few of the kids knew who it was)
The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius (Second most popular next to Rugrats)
My Life as a Teenage Robot
Danny Phantom

How did they see these? For starters, just about all of them have Nicktoons. The others saw the other shows via older siblings or cousins.

After that, I decided to ask the kids what their favorite animated shows as a whole were (including non-Nick). The top five were:

5. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
4. Adventure Time
3. Phineas and Ferb
2. SpongeBob Squarepants
1. The Fairly OddParents

Honorable mentions went to The Powerpuff Girls and Animaniacs (remember that these kids all get Boomerang and The Hub, so they have easy rerun access)

Then I asked the kids what their least favorites were. The results were:

5. Any show made for preschoolers (please remember that these kids are eight years old)
4. Fish Hooks
3. Fanboy and Chum-Chum
2. Johnny Test
1. Breadwinners

Now if only Nick knew the results…

(And you see, CN? NOBODY LIKES JOHNNY TEST!)

Come on now, fami, we know Angela is suffering from brain loss because her hair is pulled back so tight, her ass is trying to make up for it. She seems to be more relaxed when her hair is. So let’s give Season 3 Angela a chance. She might turn out to be… less annoying? Less plain yogurt? Less white-out? Useful with a clearer storyline? Tyrell’s Handmaiden?

*waiting for the candy, bomber jackets, DVD of Back to the Future 2, affirmations, waxing kits, bougey boutique coffee, and french fries to hit me in the face.
