the gang as animals

Watching Big Hero 6 and realizing it actually portrays a healthy and realistic sibling relationship. 

Watching Big Hero 6 and seeing how racially diverse all the characters are.

Watching big hero 6 and not getting hit with any random and unnecessary romantic subplots.

I love the Winnie the Pooh newspaper comics. Everyone’s such a dick to eachother, it’s so out of character. Is it simply called “Winnie the Pooh”? I never bothered to read the title, I just call it “It’s Always Sunny in the Hundred Acre Woods”

“...what’s up with the bad guy’s surfboard, anyway?”

Carl the Animator: “I dunno. It’s prolly magical or something.”

Ted the Animator: “No, like, look at the scene where the gang finds it.”

Ted the Animator: “The big reveal is supposed to be that, on the front and back, it has a huge brand sticker on it so it isn’t really ancient…”

Carl the Animator: “Mmhmm?”

Ted the Animator: “…but when he uses the board in the real scenes, the stickers are nowhere to be seen?

Carl the Animator: “Huh. I guess it is magical!”

Ted the Animator: And, when Velma leans it against the wall and takes off her backpack…”

Ted the Animator: “…and it cuts to a closeup…”

Ted the Animator: “…why does the surfboard completely disappear?!

Carl the Animator: “Wow. Yeah, it’s definitely magical now.”

Ted the Animator: “Or, alternatively, you just forgot to add those things.”

Carl the Animator: “Maybe! Everything is magical when you don’t remember what you did… the eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, and all.”

Ted the Animator: “…wait, did you just justify sloppy continuity with 1700s poetry? And-slash-or cult classic indie drama?”

Carl the Animator: “Probably. I’m awesome like that sometimes.”

Hey, remember when I said that first episode of A Pup Named Scooby-Doo yielded 53 posts-worth of material?

Yeah, well, turns out there were even two more gifs that had gotten lost.

Scooby, intermittently flying through the window…

I hear a “vvvrrrooosh!” sound in my head every time he goes by, like the old Humongous Entertainment educational games had.

…and the now-empty front gate having silhouettes of the gang when lightning strikes, because the animators didn’t want to bother to re-do it.

So… yeah. One episode, 55 posts, in actuality.

Just imagine what would happen if they made a Pup Named Scooby-Doo movi– wait, no. I am not giving them any ideas.

Oo so I was thinking maybe Lance has a ton of weird knowledge because he loves reading books about different things (boats, building, animals/plants). So one day the gang is on a mission and someone gets a bomb strapped to them or there is just a bomb they need to defuse. Everyone is freaking out and trying to think. Lance gets near it and everyone just panics thinking he'll set it off, yelling/langst, then Lance defused it and everyone is in awe or something. I just love your blog!!

oh my god I’m so happy to hear that! I’m glad you enjoy my blog so much!

if it’s ok with you, I’m gonna do more of an overall plot ( and maybe mix in my own headcanons):

so pretty much, Lance grew up in an all Cuban house, he never learned English because he never needed to. he grew up helping his mama around the house or helping his father on his fishing boat.

that’s where Lance first fell in love with the stars. he would ask his dad all the time about them and the constellations they created. his father did his very best to fuel Lance’s interests, but they lived on a very low incomes, and alot of the time Lance didn’t get alot of stuff. he sometimes would skip meals and give hem to his younger siblings so that way they didn’t grow hungry. Lance didn’t get alot of books growing up, and any of the books about space were in English. when he heard about the Garrison, he knew he had to join. only problem was that it was in America, and Lance didn’t know English at all.

so Lance would go to the old library and pick up any English book he could get his hands on. childern’s books, worker manuals, how-to books, he read them all. he would learn both the English language as well as learn how to do anything the books were talking about. another way Lance learned English was watching American shows, he mostly stuck with historical or informational shows. learning how they talked and pronounced the words he’s red over time and time again. (the library only has a certain amount of English books, so he would reread he same ones over and over again) he also learned interesting facts about American history, or watch how to fix a car, he picked it all up.

when he finally applied to the Garrison, he was a ball of nerves. his English wasn’t the best, and his accent heavy in his voice as he sounds out different English words. but you can imagine how proud his family was when Lance didn’t just get accepted, but got a full ride scholarship as well. he promised to keep u his studies and that he wont let them down.

when he does get the Garrison, he realizes how bad his spoken English is compared to everyone else. many time he’ll say the wrong word or forget the English word entirely, and many chalk him up to being the class clown, thinking that he’s doing it on purpose. they don’t realize how much it hurts Lance whenever one of the teachers or another student calls him out for messing up a word or saying the wrong thing. Lance will spend all his time either in the simulation room or in the library, reading over and over different books about the most random of things, trying to both understand the lessons he was just taught as well as broadening his knowledge of the English language. it’s in the library that he met Hunk, and they both gain the first real friend at the Garrison.

now fast forward to the team meeting, and them releasing Allura and Coran, and forming Voltron and what not. Lance missing home so much because he misses his family, and wondering how they’re doing. he misses being able to speak his first Language, he misses calling up his brothers and talking to them explaining complex math and engineering that he learned that day, knowing how much his older brother loves talking about that kind of stuff.

every once in a while, Lance will slip up with his English and it’ll get either a couple of laughs or some scowls, the team thinking that he’s trying to mess around and pull jokes in very serious moments when really he just messed up and didn’t know the right word. Lance will do what he always does when he feels like he’s letting down everyone around him. he goes to the library. it took him awhile to find it, and everything was in Altean, but Lance didn’t mind. he enjoys learning languages and sets to work figuring out the Altean language.

then, some time later, during one to the training exercises, Allura decides to change things up a bit and do a team building exercise. she sets up a bomb (not a real one, that would be crazy) but she says its an old child’s game and while it doesn’t explode, it will make quite the mess if they don’t disarm it in time.

so everyone is talking, trying to figure out how to disarm the bomb, and every time Lance tries to add to the conversation, he gets talked over or ignored. Lance decides to look over the device, trying to recognize anything about it, or any of the words look familiar.  lance remembers about reading one of the books back at the Garrison about how to disarm a bomb (how it got into a space school, he doesn’t really know) and it looks to have the same basic design as one of them. all he really needs is to figure out which wire is the one to cut.

it seems that the others stopped talking at that time to seeing Lance hovering over the device with a pair of pliers, to which they freak out and pull him away, and right when he figured out which wire to cut, and chastise him for trying to do disarm the bomb without them, and some of the comments come off more rude than others and they even put him in a ‘time out zone’ for trying to eal with something very dangerous and sensitive, but they just didn’t want Lance to get hurt because he messed around with it. Lance merely stands back up and walks back over to the bomb, and picking out the right wires, he cuts them, to the teams horror, they brace for their gooey demise.

but nothing happens. the team is amazed that Lance actually defused the bomb. and of course they all crowd around Lance, asking how he did that and why he didn’t tell them he could do it and getting a few cheers of congratulations (mostly from Hunk) lance explains that he would read alot of books and informational shows to understand the English Language, and one of those books was about how to disarm a bomb. of course the others are surprised that English isn’t his first language (they assumed it was since he was at the Garrison) and he continues to explain that when he messes up his words,its not usually on purpose and that he honestly didn’t know the word in English. everyone apologizes about always getting on him when they thought he was joking, and he easily forgives them. afterwards, Shiro even comes up to Lance and personally apologizes about not figuring it out sooner, since he also struggled with learning English when he and his family moved to America. (cue bonding moment!)

and a little extra silliness on the side~

Lance knowing just the weirdest stuff about history, just odd tidbits that he picked u from those history shows, and just spouting them out at the most random of times.

“hey Lance, can you pass me that wrench?”

“did you know that in the 1700s, the french were scared of potatoes.”

“what? dude, that has nothing to do with getting the wrench! why on Earth would you say- you know what, screw it, why were the french scared of potatoes?!”

i know this wasn’t really angsty , but i hope you like it anyways! thank you so much for the ask!

“...there’s no time to create entire new backgrounds for the hallway scenes.”

Carl the Animator: “And I’m animatin’ Scooby with the suction cup on his tail, so sorry, can’t lend a hand either.”

Ted the Animator: “Maybe… hm. I’ll see what I can fake to make the deadline.”

*20 minutes later*

Ted the Animator: “Here, lemme know if this looks ok.”

Carl the Animator: “Mmhmm?”

Ted the Animator: “Scoob and Shag run down this hallway…”

Ted the Animator: “…aaaand cut to the rest of the gang in neutral hallway.”

Carl the Animator: “Hey, that looks great!”

Ted the Animator: “It’s a bodge job, but it’ll work.”

Carl the Animator: “Did’ja crop in a little to hide the fact that it’s the same background between cuts?”

Ted the Animator: “…”

Carl the Animator: “…is that a no?”

Ted the Animator: “I may have forgotten.”

Carl the Animator: “That’s… that’s kinda freaky, actually.”

Ted the Animator: “There’s no time to change it. It’ll have to do.”

Carl the Animator: “It’s subtle enough, no one’s gonna think anything of it.”

*14 minutes later*

Carl the Animator: “…um….”

Ted the Animator: “I’ve sorta given up on the hallways at this point.”

Carl the Animator: “It’s a magic hallway. It turns into whatever it darn-well pleases.

Ted the Animator: “It’s a lot of permutations for one background, but… eh. Can’t make the Mona Lisa on a schedule like this.”

Carl the Animator: “Don’t feel bad… I spent the same time adding to my collection of just-about-to-sneeze Scoobies.”

Ted the Animator: “…ok, I feel a little better.”

Carl the Animator: “He’s probably just allergic to hallway continuity.”
