However, I’ve never actually seen “The Iron Giant”, and my hatred has nothing to do with the movie its self.
See, back in the day, some brain-genius at Cartoon Network thought it would be a great idea to show “The Iron Giant”.
From like 8 in the morning to 10 at night.
And apparently, the higher-ups loved this terrible idea so fucking much, they did it again and again on every holiday they didn’t have specials lined up for. For like three years in a row.
So every time I’d get a day off from school, I’d wake up, turn on the TV to watch cartoons, and BAM. I get a face-full of this CG,
Vin Diesel, Superman asshole dying and reincarnating in a Groundhog Day loop until he gave up and laid dormant until the next time Cartoon Network ran out of new things to air when kids where off from school. Watching cartoons was all I had as a kid, and this big, stupid jackass kept coming back to ruin my three-day weekends. I’m sure it’s a good movie, and I would have loved it just like the rest of you, but I can’t disassociate him with the all-day, marathon that kept me from watching the shows I actually wanted to see.
This render of many metal men floating through space represents my endless ire for him. He floats aimlessly though the void of space, the only place that can hold the endless encore presentations early 2000′s Cartoon Network let loose into the world.
