Netflix better cartoons than CN, Nickelodeon and Disney Channel.

Post by CastletonSnob (?) » Mon Apr 08, 2019 9:42 am

This is just IMO, but Netflix has been putting out better cartoons than CN, Nickelodeon and Disney Channel these days. Dragon Prince and Hilda are better than most of the content the big 3 have been churning out lately. Why do you think that is?

I love the new She-Ra

It's pretty gay.

Dragon Prince is also good.

I'm just hoping that Hasbro and WOTC are gonna make a Magic: the Gathering animated series on Netflix and aren't just filing the copyright for hell of it.

I think She-Ra is the new standard bearer for feminist cartoons. Put it alongside FIM and Steven Universe.

Anyone watched "Tuca and Bertie"? It just came out yesterday on Netflix.

I watched the first episode, and it turned out better than I expected. It's a VERY cartoonish, rather upbeat adult cartoon, something of a rarity. Which is surprising since it came from the same team that does "Bojack Horseman".

So far the first episode is pretty good, a lot more surreal than I expected.

Also watched the second season of She-Ra and it was even gayer than the first. Sucks it was only like 7 episodes.

Tuca & Bertie is like a train wreck I cannot look away.
It's like a strange combination of Regular Show and Bojack Horseman.
Somewhat compelling but also appalling at the same time.

Just watched episode 2 of "Tuca and Bertie". A bit more serious, with Bertie getting sexually harassed at work

Which resulted in one of her boobs literally popping out and going out for a drink, because it's that kind of show :-I

I watched the first episode of Tuca and Bertie... Then decided I couldn't watch any more without a assistance from legal-here goods. Then we marathoned the remaining episodes. I loved it, especially the background bird jokes.

I think I still like She-Ra more. Its only flaw is that the female villains are more interesting and likable than the main 'good' characters...

She's my fave. She's an amoral crackpot who is super nice, sounds a lot older, and has a Minnesota accent.

It was announced today that the Russo brothers are producing an animated MTG series for Netflix.

Personally, as long as I get Eldrazi and Jace and Vraska moments, I'll be game

I hope the show emulates the meta and half the episodes are just mono-red smorcing faces.

Also I just started watching Tuca and Bertie and it owns.

I finished Tuca and Bertie. I really enjoyed it and I appreciate them tackling some heavier subjects, but I hope it doesn't go the direction of Bojack and turn into a depress-fest. I want it to stay whimsical and off-the-wall.

Also finished it, and Speckle remains the best.
