Re: Animation!


Apparently, CN is premiering a "PowerPuff Girls" reboot in 2016! New drawings, new voice actors - and even a new creator. [sign in to see URL](2016_TV_series)

Um, how can it be based on a series of the same name? It has the same name, same story, same characters... So it's the same show, just a new series, it's not a new show based on an old show!? emoticon

Blasphemy!

I loved the old Warner Brothers animation series. Animaniacs is one of my all-time favourites.

My favourite 90s cartoons are still Nicktoons, though. Not sure how Squizz can put Cartoon Network on #1. Rugrats, Ren & Stimpy, Rockos Modern Life, Hey Arnold, Doug.. how can one not like them.

Please accept my apologies.

But I used to love Rugrats, so that makes up for it right? emoticon

I DID watch Animaniacs. I can't remember too much about it, but I remember it being on TV. And what the theme tune sounded like.

And a certain memetic lesson on the Nations of the World. Though it would fail Pointless' criteria on what makes a country nowadays. emoticon

I liked Nicktoons' stuff too, just not as much. Especially looking back now. Now I'm not so innocent any more, I can't watch too much of Rocko's Modern Life or Ren and Stimpy without feeling uncomfortable. Funny thing is Codex, my favourites from Nicktoon's 90s lineup are ones you didn't mention there: Aaah! Real Monsters and Angry Beavers. Rugrats was okay enough, but when Tommy got a brother that's when it jumped the shark for me. And it's sequel All Grown Up? Pfft. Forget it. Similar thing with Doug, that got a bit iffy when it defected from Nick to Disney.

Still put CN on top, though. I'm sure the Powerpuff Girls will still be awesome. Having had an anime adaptation in the years in between, they've never really been away.

They've sure come a long way since the starting out as the Whoopass Girls... emoticon

Re: Animation!


Yeah, they added quite some adult humor to the Nicktoons. But I don't really mind. Kids don't get it and adults don't bother.

And as for Rugrats: The original German Nickelodeon closed down in 1998 after they failed to make money and lost quite a lot frequencies to the new publicly funded kids channel.

Rugrats moved to the Saturday morning kids TV block, but they never showed the new episodes with Dill. The movie didn't get much promotion either, so I didn't knew it was in cinemas.

It was not until 2005 when Nick returned to Germany that I've seen the newer episodes with Dill and Kimi. Disney's Doug was horrible, back then I thought that they just stole the idea after Nickelodeon closed down.

Aaaah Monsters was great, too! I loved that one. And Hey Arnold was awesome, too. They sold that one to Super RTL (owned by RTL and Disney) and gave Arnold a new voice actor though. That was stupid. Sometimes dubbing companys hire woman to voice boys and sometimes it works, but with the new Arnold voice it didn't work.

Same goes for Ash. Was always voiced by a female, but you didn't notice it. Sounded like a 10 year old boy. But then they replaced her with a new one. That's when I stopped watching it because he sounded like a 10 year old girl.

And it's the animation topic, so I guess it's fine to talk more about Nickeloden. Nowadays they consider it to be mistake that they exited the German market that early, because about a year later SpongeBob premiered in the US and was a huge hit. They sold that one to Super RTL, too, and it helped the channel a lot to establish itself as the premier kids tv channel.

I can't watch SpongeBob these days though. Episodes got rather bad. Then I read that it got better again and I wanted to watch again, but they replaced almost all the German voice actors.

They still have the original SpongeBob voice, but they had to find a new actor for Squidward after the original one died. And they decided to fire Patrick because he asked for more money from DVD sales. And the new one's bad.. even though it's closer the original English voice. But still bad.

I've never watched a single episode of the Powerpuff Girls in my life. So I can't comment on that one.

Animaniacs got away with a LOT of stuff. Watching it as an adult is great.

Bumping. But for three reasons.

PowerPuff Girls reboot premiered a while ago and it's good! I have to watch some episodes of the original because I can't remember the entirety of it as I last watched it 7 years ago lol

Star vs the Forces of Evil season 2 premiering on Summer! Really looking forward to it.

The Owl (2006 I think). If you live in Europe you may have watched at least one episode while zapping (FR3, La 2, BBC, etc). Really funny series with episodes of no more than 1 min length. It features an owl which gets a lot of problems and always dies. Although the owl dies in all the episodes it has no blood and it's family-friendly.
