do you know any western cartoons that feature memorable e/se characters? all I can come up with are: Avatar/Korra, Samurai Jack, American Dragon Jake Long, Pucca, and so on
Hi! Tbh, this is a tough question, because I don’t really watch a lot of animation or animated shows… Aside from the examples you’ve listed, there’s that old Hanna-Barbera Saturday morning cartoon The Amazing Chan and the Chan Clan (from the same line-up as Scooby-Doo and The Archie Show). Keye Lukeprovided the voice for Mr. (Charlie) Chan.
Also, We Bare Bears!! Created by an actual Asian (Korean) American animator. The anti-bear sentiment itself is meant to mirror anti-Asian sentiment, but it also stars Chloe Park, a Korean American child prodigy, who’s the most important character after the bears.
I’ve seen users here on tumblr shit on bronies for enjoying or not enjoying episodes of MLP, saying that they’re not allowed to do or discuss things about it since they’re not the target audience.
Those same users then turn right around and berate Disney films for not portraying the original tales in the way some of them were originally written (dark, edgy, depressing), as well as arguing that they’re “white washing” all their characters… stuff that would normally NOT be a discussion point in films made for general audiences and marketed to kids.
You cannot berate one group for enjoying something outside of their demographic and then turn right around and type a serious ten paragraph essay about something outside of your own demographic that you personally watch.
That’s called hypocrisy.
Of course, why have time for thinking things through when you gotta fly into a blind rage? “Shh, no logic, only feels now.” ~tumblr
It’s about time that we all learn that entertainment like this isn’t a finite resource.
As long as people aren’t specifically being jackasses to YOU with what they enjoy, don’t go and be a jackass to them… especially on your public tumblr blog where everyone (including the people you just talked shit about) can see it. It just tends to make you look bad to everyone else outside of your relatively small circle of friends and followers.
Oh, and if you’re going to go, “We don’t care if bronies like the show or not! We can’t stand them making smut, dirty art or disgusting things of it!!”
Okay. That’s fine that you don’t like that. I don’t like that kind of crap as well (oh yeah, in before I get accused of being a brony myself for this submission, because that’s always a good counter argument lol amirite).
Just ask yourself: Are you also upset over the smutty, dirty and disgusting fan art of Doctor Who, Benedict Cumberbatch, Team Fortress 2 characters, Disney princes, Young Justice, Yu-Gi-Oh, Danny Phantom, [enter some other cartoon that you enjoy here] and The Avengers?
If you answered “No” to any of those, please reread the fucking post.
