Hi bros and birds,
I know it's been a while. Just wanted to display my constructive opinion here on DeviantArt.
Here are my Top 5 Favorite Animated Shows:
5. Teen Titans GO! - First off, there is very little wrong with this show aside from the bright colors and lack of character development. And I really love the voice acting, the writing, and the comedy. And despite all the controversy, it's still an awesome show. It's just misunderstood. It's low on the list because of the lame songs, though.
4. SchoolHouse Rock! - This one made this list because of how I loved it as a child watching it on video cassette. The songs are catchy, the writing and animation is competent...only thing wrong is the song where they sing about a man having 12 wives in a kid's cartoon. Other than that, it's a wonderful show. But low on the list on account of how little I watch it anymore.
3. The Loud House - This show feels like a newspaper comic strip. What adds even more charm is the characters and the catchy theme song. I love all of Lincoln's sisters (especially Lisa) on account of they're all different. (e.g. Leni's stupidity, Lana's dirty nature, Lola's vanity, Lori's authority, etc.). Clyde's dads are a gay couple (not that there's anything wrong with that) which does cause a little controversy, but it also opens more of the real world to the juvenile side of the audience. I'm also glad to see that in the Christmas special and beyond, they finally showed the Loud parents' faces. At first they were hidden-face characters.
2. Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog - Where do I begin? Good voice acting, wonderful writing and awesome jokes despite the sloppy animation. Jaleel White, mind you, is not my favorite Sonic voice actor. He was, however, the first ever all-American voice actor for Sonic's character. Long John Baldry (despite not being as funny as Mike Pollock) was still a good choice for Dr. Robotnik/Eggman. Phil Hayes and Gary Chalk were very hysterical as Scratch and Grounder. The only thing wrong with this show, aside from the sloppy animation I mentioned earlier, is the addition of unnecessary characters (e.g. Sargent Doberman).
1. VeggieTales - I know, I know, it's a show for little kids. But what it lacks in some maturity it makes up for in good writing. And to think computer animation was very limited at the time they started working on it. It also has it's share of violent scenes (like when Mr. Nezzer threatens to throw Rack, Shack and Benny into a flaming furnace if they don't bow down and worship a 90-foot-tall bunny) and bad songs (especially The SUV Song). Sure tomatoes and cucumbers are fruits, but the show has it's share of vegetables too (Laura Carrot, Junior Asparagus, Princess Eloise, etc.). I like that Phil Vischer plays like half of all the voices like a G-Rated Seth MacFarlane (Mike Nawrocki plays about the other half). It's number one on this list because of my fondest memories watching it and awaiting the next video. Also because it's a Christian-themed series with very valuable lessons I couldn't have truly learned without VeggieTales.
Well, that's it. Hope to see you all again soon. And the script for Stan and Posie in "Friendly Principles" has to be re-written due to some story-based errors and stuff that doesn't add up. The deadline should be set soon, though. I'm also gonna try to upload a new S&P cartoon every other Saturday to YouTube. Don't touch that unsubscribe button. I'll try to get my next project done by mid-June (Stan and Posie or not). I'm a busy man and can't upload once a week. I don't even have a production schedule made out. But I'll see what I can do.
-See you soon and keep your comments civil,
