Yes, but do you remember episodes no one else has seen. I couldn't convince anyone that they portrayed Mickey Mouse like he was Michael Jackson. Nor can I find the episodes with the long tailed leopard/lemur thing. It's like they don't exist.
(unnecessary disclosure of nothing in particular...)
Granted, I don't discuss cartoons with any frequency. And, I might add, I haven't really discussed any cartoons outside of an online forum once I reached adulthood.
Aside from an awkward conversation I once had with a girl about Sailor Moon I generally haven't discussed cartoons in casual conversation.
Although, this one time I was telling someone about the CW "Reaper" series durring a lunch break, the person on the other side of the conversation thought I was talking about a cartoon.
Still, It's like trying to tell people about the great Gazoo. You know it's there but no one else has seen it, so you come off looking like a loon.
On an unrelated note, some people see watching Dragonball Z, or American Dad as immature, but watching Greg the Bunny, or Ted is totally acceptable despite the similar level of character and story development.
However, because I don't want to completely alienate you, bore you to tears, or talk your ear off. Not to mention, I'm pretty sure you don't want to hear my life story. I have decided to praise you for your awesomeness and let you know that I find your comic hilariously funny.
@GabrielsThoughts: To be honest, I can't remember Michael Jackson Mickey Mouse, but since Bonkers was a Disney cartoon, it isn't farfetched. Honestly, I barely remember the cartoon since they played it late at night and I was so little at the time.
Do they even play the Flinstones or The Jetsons anymore? It's like those cartoons have vanished.
On a similar note, the original live action Frankenweenie doesn't seem to exist anymore either :/ most folk don't know the one in theatres is a remake.
How the hell are American Dad and Ted any different? Both are from Seth MacFarlane :/
Well I'm glad you can enjoy my comic, and that the humor does reach out to at least some kind of an audience. Thank you for your patronage :3
You are most welcome... as for the original Frankenweenie it was a half hour short that disney supposedly didn't like until Burton became popular/famous. I believe that Burton was one of the producers for Brad Bird's "Family Dog" and the current movie is a mash-up of the two universes.
The difference between American Dad and Ted is that one is actually enjoyable because of good storytelling. Movies have fewer opportunities to make bombs unless they have an established franchise. With a TV series you get some gems, you enjoy a few nuts, and occasionally come across something foul.
@GabrielsThoughts: There are way too many speculations as to why it stopped existing until now. I just looked up the data on "Family Dog," and Tim Burton was a producer, and that explains why Sparky resembles the dog, minus the stitches.
Honestly, I missed out on watching Ted (too busy with other matters). American Dad is a great series. Sure the characters don't develop past 1 episode, and every moral learned is forgotten by the next show, but the humor is darker and wittier than that of Family Guy. How was Ted?
The movie probably won't get a sequel. But, I rented Ted, and watched it more than one time... The last time I did that without having to do it for purely educational purposes was when I watched Elf with Will Ferrell. And, I dislike his films with a passion.
Compared to other movies made in 2012, It's better than the somber humor of most independent films, victorian era dramas, and franchise films that rely too much on rotoscope and poor lighting.
It's definitely at the top of my list for movies I've seen this year. Then again I didn't see it on the big screen.
The second time through, I was thinking how awesome the movie would have been if they hired the "boy" from the child's play series for the role of the main villain.
I suppose the one kid growing up to be the werewolf from Twilight was okay.
