Canceled projects, working conditions / environments, unfair pay & pop culture fans demand for supply, especially those who want things from the past released & distributed to all platforms & forms of media. The animation industry deserves better ! #NewDeal4Animation #popculture

It looks like HBO Max as left the classic Looney Tunes shorts alone. I noticed HBO Max no longer has Popeye. They still have Tom & Jerry, several Cartoon Network & the main Hanna-Barbera shows. #HBOMax #LooneyTunes #GoldenAgeofAnimation #Animation #cartoons #WarnerBrosDiscovery #fandom #popculture

If HBO Max gets rid of the exclusive classic era Sesame Street episodes ? Where else do you go ? If HBO Max gets rid of the original Looney Tunes shorts, Warner Bros is NOTHING without them. Why limit distribution ? 📀

Whenever people talk about satire https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satire & dark humor https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_comedy , it's never called what it's called but instead it's a political discussion of what's ok and what isn't. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QMlQlKhUqw

Cartoon Network went downhill most when they cancelled Ed Edd N Eddy & The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy ( and the other shows ). Also when CN was rebranded as a " kids network " instead of a " COMEDY CARTOON NETWORK " which they were BEST known for. #cartoonnetwork #fandom #popculture

There's people who enjoyed Fraggle Rock : Back To The Rock. Also all the creative / artistic hard work & effort of any production like this ( especially during the times of the pandemic ) is something to admire & appreciate as well as the advancement in puppetry filmmaking. It's a reboot ( of a show that already had a general closure ) , " updated for modern times ". What does that exactly mean ? Is the original problematic ? We live in an age of streaming services where sometimes the original & reboot / remakes are beside each other ironically. It's not mean to point out the facts that there's clearly differences between the two. It's called " artistic critique " ( probably more common among nostalgic fans who are the minority of fandom ). The original had a strong political pacifism aspect to it as well as Jerry Juhl's humor. Back To The Rock is more gentle & the Fraggles talk in teenager slang ( among other things ). Was the many changes necessary ? A change in modern times (

Could you imagine a fluffy version of Oscar the Grouch singing Taylor Swift's " Shake it Off " but it's about recycling ? Is " I Love Trash " problematic, taboo, controversial & cancel culture now ? :( Oscar the friendly recycle monster ? I don't think so. Someone could easily look at the current version / new video and be like " Oh how cute ! Oscar & Grover are dancing together, that means they are FRIENDS ! AWWW ! " That's not what it was like in the original ! THIS IS Oscar & Grover in the original ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KXBkJC-Zscg So is this ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_QVPdWstIk Oscar was beyond a GROUCH ! It's no wonder he was thrown down the stairs ! https://youtu.be/USUjEXfTqf4?t=603 Even before " One of these things is not like the other " , Oscar's brother says " F**kin' SICK ! " https://youtu.be/xGYil8o88H4?t=569 Oscar even insulted advertisers in front of a nervous Dick Cavett. https://youtu.be/Q65fKWU9S-U?t=684 Everything is LITERALLY reboot

TikTok mutes the political satire animated comedy sketch from The Erica Crooks Show : Season 14 ( 2021 ) Season Finale. The sketch featured Rudy Giuliani , Trump Brothers ( Donald Trump Jr. & Eric Trump ) as well as Ex-President Donald J. Trump going to Jail ! The sketch shows a drunk Rudy Giuliani who one moment graffitied the walls & the American flag then finding himself behind jail bars " I always wind up in strange places ! " The sketch ends with a bald & pale Trump in an orange jumpsuit crying and screaming " FAKE NEWS ! " multiple times until the off camera guard silences him. In the sketch, Donald Trump Jr. mentions that he will revenge his father by becoming a dictator just like him before being pulled away by Authority. " Capitalists have privatized the internet / social media so they can control the freedom of speech and expression of content creators of good faith. Censorship & banning is done by " bots ", there's no cooperative customer service & the appeals and

Frank Oz has been outspoken since the release of The Muppets ( 2011 ). https://www.theguardian.com/culture/2021/aug/30/frank-oz-on-life-as-fozzie-bear-miss-piggy-and-yoda-id-love-to-do-the-muppets-again-but-disney-doesnt-want-me In 2013, he said in quote " Those are NOT The Muppets that Jim ( Henson ) had intended. Their job is to be rebellious and say SCREW Disney ! " https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgv_VTynhEk Frank Oz has equally mentioned about the decline of Sesame Street. https://twitter.com/TheFrankOzJam/status/1167823896126443520 The decline of Sesame Street shouldn't be a secret to Muppet Fans ( who ACTUALLY read the books. ) Street Gang by Michael Davis revealed Sesame Street's decline since CTW ( now Sesame Workshop ) decided to compete with Elmo in the early 1990s which changed EVERYTHING since. For those who know about Jim Henson's passing, Jim Henson died during the final negotiations of selling his company to The Walt Disney Company which through out was stressful.
