the racoon

zombie apocalypse shows and movies would be a lot scarier if the plague affected the animals too. could you imagine – herds of bloodthirsty undead horses, wolves, racoons, deer, moose, bears, fucking FLOCKS OF ZOMBIFIED BIRDS!!! and microscopic insects – like you wouldnt even notice if you got bit by one of them?? humanity wouldnt stand a chance. if there was a show based on this it wouldnt last longer than a season cause everyone would be fucking dead

It genuinely bothers me how good an idea Danny Phantom was. The premise of a teenage ghost superhero fighting evil spirits while living in the home of his ghost hunter parents is such a truly fresh idea I’m astonished it happened at all. There were so many problems with the show and I can’t tell if they were the fault of the creators or Nickelodeon trying to keep it too close to Fairly Odd Parents instead of letting this brilliant idea breath and act as its own entity. Can you imagine how amazing this show would have been in a post Adventure Time post Avatar environment that would have allowed it to explore the narrative it was clearly interested in weaving? The potential this show had bothers me so much.

Tina:  The fate of New York lies on your shoulders.  Now whatever you do.  Don’t. Open. That. Case.  Because that will let your creatures out and we’ll all be dead.  Now repeat back what I just said.

Newt:  I am Newt.  *opens case*
