Gravity Falls

The trifecta.

There are some good cartoons out right now. It's surprising after the waist land of 2008-2010 after the loss of Avatar, Zim, and Teen Titans.

I know. I'm really happy about all the good stuff out right now. Its quite honestly the best its been since the 90's and early 2000's.

But there is still a lot of shady stuff going on. The Tron show got cancelled, Gendy Tartakovsky's show Symbiotic Titan got cancelled because there were no toys to sell to go along with the show. I guess the silver lining of that is one of the writers for it now writes for MLP.

I've never been a fan of comic book stuff but I heard Young Justice is in trouble now too. I guess there is a campaign in motion to save the show so that is a glimmer of hope.

o.o I only watched Dragon Half for the first time ever Yesterday.

How do you know what I'm watching? WHERE ARE YOUR CAMERAS!?!?!

As much as I like Gravity Falls, it's almost getting a bit grating hearing Kristen Schaal voice everything.

SonicWaffle:

OT: Yup, sailed clear over my bonce this time. Possibly because even as a kid, I never watched the Disney Channel.

Fasckira:

Having not seen Gravity Falls though this strip is all over my head. :(

In the first panel, the sweater lined with lights is plugged into the wall.

I missed that too until Vault pointed it out.

The joke became a lot funnier when I figured that out. <.<

So I've heard. Maybe they're just directing their focus to the true gems of 'Total Drama Island' and 'The Problem Solverz'.

Symbiotic Titan's cancelling was the biggest bunch of crap ever!
:( I miss them....

Well, at least there are some good shows still going on tv still.
And the the web too. ;)

At the very least we can hope for some more good shows to come around at some point on tv.
Until then, we do have what we got now, and the Escapist.

Nice comic. But why is dancing Arin's legs so big?

Well if you are disappointed about Gravity Falls, there was one on march 1st, and another coming on the 15. Just saying. Also I love this picture. IT IS AMAZING!

I applaud the Dragon-Half dance!

Oh my god DEM THIGHS!

Sorry, that animation less "hit" my fetish button than smashed it with a hammer >.>

Anyways, funny strip, and I do like the lack of snark this time around. I was getting tired of it.

The sweater caught on fire.

Erin became The Human Torch.

The Fantastic Four isn't really that obscure, is it?

I think he means what in that comic is referencing Gravity Falls? I've never watched the show so I'm a bit confoos.

No idea what the comic was about, but this is way too adorable:

HNNNNNGGG. Do more please!!

Stop reminding me of how they never made more Dragon Half!!!

Theres not nearly enough burn victim comedy out there.

Bravo!

GRAPPLING HOOK!

Just google/youtube Gravity Falls opening and wait until it introduces Mabel.

*debating whether or not I should link actual Gravity Falls clips of awesome Gravity Falls moments*

What about Regular Show?

Hey guys, heres an idea, lets not do this! I really don't want this thread to look like a bad day on Reddit!!!

OT: Yes cartoons are awesome again, PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW THIS, INFORM ZEE FILTHY MASSES!!!

If you havn't checked out Cartoon Hangover on Youtube i'd do so.

I just started watching Gravity Falls. Coincidence? Probably!

What about Regular Show?

Some people would put regular show in there too. Its not bad. I put those 3 in terms of quality (animation, writing, humor etc). But those 3 are just my personal preferences.

I just don't find this to be funny in the slightest

That is dudebro. I experience enough of that in real life. I don't want that in cartoons I watch.

Personally, I love Regular Show, it's that ironic dudebro/stoner humor that draws me in. FiM, Adventure Time, Gravity Falls, Amazing World of Gumball, Dan vs (occasionally), and Regular Show are all great in their own way. Bravest Warriors on YouTube is also great.

I remember the late 2000's in general being fairly sparce although I was big into anime at the time, one lead to the other. I can only really remember watching Hartmans stuff like Fairly Odd Parents I didn't even see many Cartoon Networt repeats, I still had hang ups over Toonami.

True, but the 2008-2010 time frame in particular saw cartoon network airing CNreal with things like: Destroy Build Destroy and Dude, What Would Happen, BrainRush, ext, ext. "CNreal" probably the dumbest idea ever. The cartoons they were showing tended to be some version of Scooby Doo or Tom & Jerry, and, for a while, they seemed to be grabbing anything 'Fresh TV' made (6teen, Total Drama, Stoked). things are better now, but still not quite back the the mid to late 90's assortment.

And i just realized how similar Erin and Mabel are. Both are adorable... and magnets to disaster, so Erin could be something like a disillusioned, cynical future-self of Mabel.

But, that dance and that ending theme... i, ehm, eh...
whaaaaaaaaa?
To me it's even bizarre compared to other anime themes - and i like it! I now call it J-dadaism.

Grey Carter:

Plug in baby.

Is that a Muse reference?

Ah, Gravity Falls. Good show, also damn I love Dragon Half and I think Erin looks good with big hips :P

Dragon Half was weirdly enough part of my early (an well loved) anime education, I Dormamu, will not regret this!

Zachary Amaranth:

I've never heard of it, but based on that "trifecta," I'll pass.

You don't like Adventure Time? :(

Heretic!!!
But back to the comic, I liked the look on Erin's face in panel 1, as lit up as her in-retrospect-flammable costume. the other woman not being that surprised this would happen was the kicker. Great work, guys!

shiajun:
I agree. Disney screwed up Tron:Uprising as well. It was the best animated cartoon I've seen in quite a while. Good scripts, damn good animation, excellent soundtrack (also surprisingly high number of derezzing of characters for a "kids" show). But hey, let's broadcast it a midnight on Sunday, and then bitch that not enough people are watching it. Then pull the plug.

That really pissed me off too. It was practically Tron's equivalent to Batman: The Animated Series. Yes, I'm saying it was THAT good. Because it really was: good scripts, music, acting, stories, characters, a visual design that was very true to the movies, and so on. And what does Disney do? Schedule it in the most ass-backwards time, on a premium channel that not many cable companies provide, THEN they complain about it getting not enough views. What the fuck did you think was going to happen to it, Disney? For fuck's sake.

Never saw it catch on fire... I assumed the link was just because it was lit brightly. Whos Mabel though?

I remember several 'real' shows popping up at the time from what seemed to be the 80's and not even to the standard of say 'Sabrina' like what they had on Nickolodeon. I just remembered being so disillusioned with my favourite thing in the world (cartoons) that I retreated into anime which I mostly stayed with until 2010 when I started to predict tropes in Shounen manga down to the script points... sad times. Then one day I was bumming around YouTube and found Ruby Gloom which I thought was just lovely and it was all up from there!
People my age who go on and on about this 'golden age of cartoons' from the 80's-90's really drive me nuts. Im not saying those wern't good times, they were, but its no excuse to over look the awesome shows of today because of the crap that was the late 2000's.
Im from the UK, so I don't know if we had the same scedule as the US, I hear they have some new psuedo-Toonami (SO MUCH WANT!), where are you from?

Toonami has returned on Adult Swim, which is when the more adult themed shows air late at night. Steve Blum is still Tom and they are trying to keep it going, from what I know its been going good so far. Its on every Saturday night at midnight I think.

I don't remember the lineup but I know Naruto, Bleach(sigh), Fullmetal alchemist: brotherhood, Eureka 7, Thundercats (the new version), Deadman Wonderland, and I think Trinity Blood or something similar is on there now too. They've been adding a bunch of stuff recently. They had like a 4 part movie type thing called Samurai 7 on there which was pretty damn good.

I agree. Things are starting to greatly improve. McCraken/Faust new show Wander Over Yonder is looking like it will be done soon, so that is pretty cool. The only thing I wish would stop happening is shows getting cancelled too fast.

I made the list earlier. MLP, Adventure Time, Gravity Falls. You could include others there like Regular Show, Phineus and Ferb, etc. But there should be at least double that. We'll get there soon I hope!

Holy crap Dragon Half... I haven't seen that show in years!

My only beef is the lack of action orientated shows, the only current generation ones I can think of off the top of my head being Ben 10, Generator Rex, Thunder Cats and a few super hero tie ins none of which deal with the nature of violance itself (when and why to fight) like some of the older ones did. Last time I was engaged on that level was probeerly X-Men Evolution which was so freaking underated, or re-watching Samurai Jack on late night showings.

Every time I've watched Gravity Falls, I've loved the crap out of it. But the air schedule gets thrown around so much that I was under the impression that it had been canceled for being too original and interesting.

Apparently I need to find again!

Is this comic implying that they set Erin on fire for wearing that?
