ultimate teen titans

The Maestro’s Orchestra by micquestion (deviantart)
This man was such an animation genius and paved the way for new and awesome shows like Gravity Falls, Star vs., Voltron, Adventure Time, Regular Show and so many more, that it’s still hard to take in that he’s gone. He created Teen Titans, Static Shock, Ben 10 and basically a huge part of our childhood.

Thank you for everything, McDuffie. (1962-2011)

Some Underated Animation Noises:

- When Starfire says “Glorious!”
- The music playing when Steven summons his shield
- when Yang cocks Ember Celica
- When the Omnitrix powers on
- When A Powerpuff Girl punches someone
- Kim Possible’s four note ring tone
- Wall-E charging

fefnep-archive-deactivated20160  asked:

do you happen to know if there are any latinx characters represented in cartoon shows? :0

Well at the top of the list we have multiple characters from Dora the Explorer, Go Diego Go, Handy Manny, ¡Mucha Lucha!, Maya & Miguel, and El Tigre - all of which center around Latinx protagonists and feature Spanish to varying degrees. These are the shows that are really getting little Latinx kids in the US to feel comfortable in their own skin and I wish they had been around when I was growing up.

I am so happy that we have shows that feature Latinx characters and cultures so heavily like that and that they are made for a very young audience, but almost all of us already know about those shows. So here are some animated Latinx characters that I think are deserving of more love…

Rex and Caesar Salazar from Generator Rex

Jaime Reyes from Young Justice

Miguel O’Hara from The Ultimate Spider-Man

Paulina from Danny Phantom

Master Hector Chavez from Kaijudo

Mas y Menos from Teen Titans and Teen Titans Go

LaCienega Boulevardez from The Proud Family

Twister and Lars Rodriguez from Rocket Power

Enrique, Emmy, and Max from Dragon Tales

Izzy from Jake and The Never Land Pirates

and Carlos Ramon from The Magic School Bus

Voice actors often play characters who are not their same race/ethnicity. Some of the above characters are voiced by non-Latinx white people for example. Since this is so common we then have a selection of animated characters who are not Latinxs, but are voiced by Latinxs…

Asami Sato from The Legend of Korra is voiced by Saychelle Gabriel

Marceline Abadeer from Adventure Time is voiced by Olivia Olson

Kanan Jarrus from Star Wars Rebels is voiced by Freddie Prinze Jr

Mr. Crocker and Vicky from Fairly Odd Parents are voiced by Carlos Alazraqui and Grey Griffin respectively 

Vanessa Doofenshmirtz from Phineas and Ferb is voiced by Olivia Olson

Winslow from Catdog is also voiced by Carlos Alazraqui

as is Rocko from Rocko’s Modern Life

…and that is about all the Latinx cartoon characters I can think of at the moment, if anyone else is aware of any more feel free to add on. 

Responses to criticism
  • Ultimate Spider-man cartoon writers: Okay, we'll cut back on the cutaway gags and chibi moments. We'll also improve the art style and make Peter Parker more likable. Oh! and start tackling darker issues like child abuse and questioning if you can really make a difference in the world.
  • Teen Titans Go writers: LOL! We think that we're god's gift to cartoons and don't deserve any criticism at all. We'll make not one but TWO episodes calling out our critics and saying that if they don't like the show then they don't have a sense of humor! In fact, one episode will talk about how adults shouldn't even be watching cartoons because they're for kids! Wow, we're so great! We didn't even watch the show it's based on, only cashing in on that shows success! I mean robin is supposed to be a psycho starfire stalker, right? And beast boy and cyborg are just idiots that nobody likes, right! Of course we're right! We're right and you're wrong. LOL!

Teen Titans: The Judas Contract

Led by Starfire, the Teen Titans – Beast Boy, Raven, Blue Beetle, Robin and the just-returned Nightwing – have built a cohesive team in their never-ending battle against evil but their newest teammate, the mysterious, and powerful, Terra, may be altering that dynamic. Meanwhile, an ancient evil – Brother Blood – has awakened, and familiar foe Deathstroke is lurking in the shadows, both waiting to pounce. Ultimately, the Teen Titans will need to battle their enemies and their own internal doubts to come together and overcome the malicious forces around them in this twisting tale of intrigue, adventure and deception.
