When a really good show gets cancelled because of a terrible time slot.

When really a good show gets cancelled because of poor merchandise sales.

When a really good show gets cancelled because they didn’t “hit their target audience”

When a really good show gets cancelled and a really shit show gets more seasons.

So speaks Genndy Tartakovsky, my animation idol and hero:

I hate realism.

In America especially, we’re very narrow-minded as far as animation goes. There is only one kind of movie, and that’s that big, family-oriented, four-quadrant, please-everyone kind of film. But if I wanted realism, I’d watch a live-action movie. Those lines are being blurred every day. When I go to see a movie, especially an animated movie, I’m going to escape. The more realistic it is, the less believable it is.
