To let you all know, I was born in the 90s so this blog may perhaps be a tad biased against what is now showing on TV, don't have to agree with me but I am just sharing my points with everyone.
Alright so what has happened to cartoons these days? Compared to what is showing now I think(remember my opinion) that what is shown now on TV is just so....so....bad, compared to what was shown during the 90s era of cartoons. Especially on cartoon network, for a time when they showed live action shows I was like...."WHAT?" this channel is meant for CARTOONS not live action shows....now I don't see any of those things just cartoons which is fine with me, however the cartoons I see...just don't match up to what was shown before. (Minus looney tunes, and scooby doo(the old ones). I remember when shows had a plot, a good story to tell, great characters that you could really enjoy.....but now all I see are a bunch of lame shows trying to be "cool" with dumb jokes or plots not to meant some of the animation is TERRIBLE!
Now this isn't to say that all shows that came with 2000 were bad, no...but there are VERY FEW shows that are/were worth watching and I will be listing those shows now.
Young Justice(Haven't really watched this show, mostly because I kinda missed episodes and don't like watching after a good number has gone by. But from the looks of it, looks to be alright.)
I suppose everyone is seeing a pattern here, yes they are all superhero shows but really these are the only shows that I can remember that were any good in the 2000 era. Every other show I tried to watch just seemed so....bland...now lets look back on cartoons in the 90s, that were a great watch.
Ed, Edd, n Eddy
Looney Tunes(Older ones)
Scooby Doo(Older ones)
Tiny Toon Adventures
Am probably forgetting a few, but you get the idea lots of good shows. Now yes Looney Tunes and Scooby Doo were before 90s, however they were shown and are still shown to this day and why? Because they are a good series of cartoons, timeless ones that can't really be beat no matter how hard someone tries it just isn't possible, adults can still watch them and enjoy the shows, now you know you made a good show when today adults would still watch them.
I have asked myself a few times, what is wrong with the writers these days? Did they stop caring about making good shows? Really...if you have a good show, that people will watch then you don't need to worry about not making money because you will. In order to have a good show, you need good writers, a good idea for the show, good characters, and a good plot. It seems today writer's just throw in whatever, and hope that people watch the shows....that isn't how you make a good show sorry.
Anyway those are my thoughts, been wanting to put em down for a while. Disagree or agree, whichever I was also gonna get into Disney but i'll save that for some other time so...enjoy reading folks.
