3 Main Toon Sources by KicsterAsh 3 Main Toon Sources by KicsterAsh
This image is mainly to clarify certain things for the upcoming story I hope to post. The way these 3 appear in the image are how they will appear for the most part in the story. These are also their heights.
In this image here: [link] I briefly mentioned Sources. First off, I did not come up with the initial theory. I discovered it while watching an episode of Tiny Toons for Animation History this year. In the episode, Fields of Honey, Babs, on her quest to find herself a mentor (eventually finding it in one of the first and unfortunately forgotten Looney Tune, Honey), she learns that Bugs Bunny is actually over 50 years old.

"Bugs Bunny is over 50 years old [...] it is laughter that keeps a Toon young. When the laughter stops, a toon grows old and forgotten."

I love that theory so much. It just makes it feel like there really is a heart behind the cartoon characters we all know and love, and that without us, they wouldn't be around. So I adapted that into my story line.

A Source is what keeps the Toon alive. for Bugs and the Looney Tunes, it's Laughter. No one can make someone laugh harder than the Toons at WB, and because of that, Bugs and his team are still around. Most stories take place in 2012-2013, so Bugs is about 72-73 years old. Bugs, being the most popular Looney Tune, as well as Warner Brothers' mascot, was given the special ability to make anyone laugh no matter what, all the while remaining honest and level-headed. He's often regarded as the leader of the Looney Tunes for this reason. He's aware of the reason behind his creation and how vital it is for him to keep people laughing at his cartoons. One child's laugh is often the only thing standing between him and his life coming to an end.

Mickey Mouse and the Disney Core, which include the Sensational Six, Pete, Clarabelle and new members Oswald and Ortensia, rely on the source of Magic and Imagination. Mickey, having grown very close to his creator, takes his job as Disney's mascot incredibly seriously. He knows how much hope and smiles he brings to children, and has vowed to keep doing so until his Source dies out. His friendship with Bugs often clashes at times, especially in humor--while Mickey does enjoy making others laugh, he's more level-headed than Bugs can be. Unlike the Looney Tunes, as well as the other Disney Characters, Mickey was granted a very special gift by his creator before his death, which is the gift of Magic. No one quite understands how it works save Mickey, but it part of the reason why Disney still has such a strong glow, and why so many people rely on the mouse to keep their spirits and hopes up in the darkest of times. (there are a few more secrest to Mickey's gift, but that's to remain unknown for now XD)

Alvin and the Chipmunks have the Source of Music. In the storyline I've got, Alvin held a grudge against any large company, in particular Disney and Warner Brothers due to them nearly causing his company, Bagdasarian Productions, to die out. He eventually makes up with Bugs and Mickey, though remains the most ferocious of the three main Toon mascots. His and his brothers' source relies on the fans they've had throughout the decades, and every ten years or so they nearly lose their Source until they can find a way to win back the new generations. The Chipmunks, like Mickey, were given very special gifts, and, unlike Disney and WB's Toons, they can age whenever they want to, often remaining in the physical appearances of 11-yr-olds because they target children more than others. The reason for this is because, unlike Mickey and Bugs, who were created to entertain, the chipmunks' creator created them out of the love for his family in attempting to support them (I'm not saying that Mickey and Bugs weren't created with love! Only that one of the reasons behind the chipmunks was so that Ross could support his family).

These are the three main Toons groups that interact in the series, although I've been able to make cameos of others from various companies. Usually, it's Looney Tunes, Disney, or Looney Tunes and Disney, due to the friendship between Bugs and Mickey (which will be explored in the story I will post).

:star:One more biggie! Because the Looney Kids and Disney Kids were born and not created, they are not connected to any Source until they reach the age of maturity. Then, they have the choice of searching for a Source or else living a normal life like any other human, eventually growing old and dying.

Big read! Hopefully it'll clarify things in the story I will eventually post.

Source #4

Mostly the same as source one, laughter, but the toon contains unknown forces that can deceive, bewilder, and/or intimidate humans. The toon could melt away into a viscous liquid, make grimaces that is impossible for a normal person can imitate, defies physics and gravity laws, do random actions for little to no reason, the mass in the toon’s body is inconsistent (i.e. stretching infinitely while retaining shape without problems), etc. This source could be compared to a certain Courage the Cowardly Dog, except exaggerated to a point where it’s mostly surreal. Only one toon on the entire planet has this source, Mr. Inky, an anthropomorphic fountain pen character whose origins was traced back to Ontario Canada one day before the country’s national flag day, which adds to the mysterious status of this source.

The big 3 of animation. Nobody does humor like the Looney Tunes, imagination & creativity like Disney, and music like Bagdasarian.

You certainly have a creativity of taking recognized characters and placing your own spin to them. It reminds me of how I started something similar a long way back.

"The creation of classic cartoons and cartoon characters whose animated lives have brought joy to our real ones for more than half a century." - Oscar award to Chuck Jones...Looney Toons, especially Bugs Bunny, will always hold the Laughter of people. When they don't, the world will be in absolute sadness.

“I only hope that we don’t lose sight of one thing – that it was all started by a mouse.”- quote from Walt Disney...The Disney corp., that started with Mickey, teaches all generations that dreams do come true. The world can be made better, with Imagination and a bit of mouse-Magic.

“... it was a way of keeping my dad alive, and keeping what he created alive."- quote from Ross Bagdasarian, Jr. about Ross Bagdasarian, Sr. ...People and places can be remembered, and cherished, throughout time. So, why not something that speaks the world's language Music.

Marvelous work, you never disappoint and always amaze.

This sounds so AMAZINGLY EPIC!! I love ALL your works but THIS sounds like it'll truly be your very best yet :) :squee:
Divinehearts Featured By Owner May 19, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
This is an amazing plot! I've thought about how the different company's toons would interact together, but your mythos behind the whole idea takes it leagues ahead of anything I've thought of. I'd love to see the story you create from this. I'd love to see it as a comic, but a story would be great too.
KicsterAsh Featured By Owner May 19, 2013  Professional Filmographer
thank ya^^
^^; yeah, unfortunately no time for comic, though I will be making (or have made) loads of illustrations. There are several stories to the series, but I got tired of posting most of my works online so only my closest friends know about them. That and since I come up with several stories at once, i just record myself telling it to my best friend and that way, if i want to write it in the future, I remember how it goes.:shrug: My imagination is so active, it drives me nuts sometimes

Ohh so very true! :thumbsup: Love your idea here! I also absolutely LOVE that theory you quoted, I remember it got me thinking back when I watched TTA for the first time, too! :nod:
StarDiamondHeart Featured By Owner May 19, 2013
Wow This is cool you should do an 'Anime' source for Astro, since he's technically not an actually toon. Well I guess he's sort of is if you point out that Anime in japan is just a short term for animation in any form.

Note this is not a request, just a suggestion I know you don't like request.
