Ah yes, time for beaches, waterparks, conventions, drawing, food, fun...and...uh...other things!
The other things being the shows on Cartoon Network that have been on for the past year.
I'm looking forward to the season premier of Adventure Time on July 11th. I'm really tempted to throw a Adventure Time party and have some friends over. I'll probably have another one when the Adventure Time with Fionna and Cake episode comes out ( adventuretimewithfinnandjake.w…
). Pen Ward is amazing. Every other episode of Adventure Time just has a comic timing I haven't seen in a cartoon in a long while. The ones inbetween (and my favorites), are the ones where they give the characters more depth. Mortal Folly/Mortal Recoil and Nightosphere are the best episodes so far.
Regular Show is also another one of my favorites. I love how the episodes just snowball into something ridiculous before the end. The inclusion of the Sega Master system is another win! J.G. Quintel...good jorb! I also love the short he made which featured some of the RS cast for the first time ( www.youtube.com/watch?v=y894QN…
). Regular Show is just one big acid trip...lol.
I do like how the creators of these shows are also doing voices. Pen as LSP and J.G. as Mordecai are great. I tried voicing QuickPaw in my own shorts, but I still can't nail down what I want him to sound like. I really need to animate more...
...oh! And the Amazing World of Gumball is realllllly cute. If I made a cartoon show, this would be it. I'm finding myself studying the animation techniques they are using more and more. I just wish they'd shop running the same promo commercial over...and over...and over again!
The Looney Tunes Show is hit or miss with me. I either find myself yawning, or laughing for 2 minutes straight. However, Daffy steals the show. He is such a jerk now, and I love it.
And Thundercats is on the way!
It might seem girly, but I am watching JEM whenever I can...and I'm trying to see My Little Pony on HUB. JEM for the nostalgia (and the crazy plotlines, the very 80s music videos and acting), and My Little Pony so I can find out what all the fuss is about...and maybe a Derpy Hooves sighting.
I don't miss Flapjack or Chowder. They were good shows, but they didn't leave a long-lasting impression on me. I just hope Adventure Time and Regular Show go into re-runs, and not get completely booted from the network. That has been happening a lot lately. I haven't seen Flapjack or Chowder on at all. They probably run on weekends or really early in the morning now. Same goes for Fosters.
I will be going to Otakon 2011 this year! I hope to meet some of you out there. I'll be in my Marty Jr hat. Can't miss me.
Ok, back to work with me.
