Any interesting episodes since the one where Gumball and Darwin learn to skateboard? I've been following the show less than I'd like.

well shit. Considering how redpilled and off the walls crazy this show can feel, it kind of makes sense

also I love it when guest animators make an episode for a show

Sebastian Brown

Only newish one I saw recently was called "the Story" I believe and revolved around Molly. It was pretty darn cute.

Owen Ross

I don't know. To me, It feels like they're simply trying to find ways to spend their animation budget recently, with their guest artists and all, insted of having good writing or improving on the snarky/ witty humor which made the show what it was. The references and the show falling short on the writing makes me afraid that it might pull a complete spongebob after Bocquelet goes away.

The Weirdo was pretty adorable. The ending musical number I think is my favorite in the entire series.

redpilled
people need to start being more selective with that word

Kevin Davis

Don't you know user? Normal = Redpilled now. We've gone off the liberal deep end that anything that doesn't conform to their standard is now redpilled.

This is the only CN show that is actually kinda good the LOLSORUNDUM humor people seem to think it has is not true

The show's running dry. It happens. We should hope Bocquelet gets a grand finale for the show before he retires.

thought it would be a good show when the commercials first aired
it was—at first
quickly becomes "le boyz drule gills rool XD"
Gumball is treated like Squidward in modern Spongebob, though not as bad
feel like this is because of an anti-cat bias a lot of people have
Why does Holla Forums like this show?

Don't Hug Me I'm Scared
Overhyped hipster bullshit with a pretentious 2DEEP4U message. Their puppetry and production skills are top-notch though, so I can't complain about that.

Sebastian Watson
Sebastian Watson

It doesn't have a 2DEEP4U message, it was just creepy for the sake of creepy. I think the creators were aware that their shit would get over-analyzed and ran with it. This news is good. Also, both them and Gumball are produced in the UK.

Gumball just happens to be their only non-Burbank show at the moment

Aaron Wright

Pelling, when asked about how the film came about, said that the purpose was "how not to teach something" and "how an abstract concept like creativity is kind of stupid when people try to teach it in a limited way that [they] do". In addition, he comments on how the video is open for interpretation, and how, when different people reach different conclusions about the video, they may all be valid in their own right.[33]
A student writer for Nouse compared the appeal of the first episode to themes in Gothic literature, arguing that they are both "tapping into the same cultural fear of a violent subconscious hiding beneath the facade of normality."[34] In The Wesleyan Argus, another student writer called the series a "fine example of the era of esotericism" and noted that, "There is a building meta-commentary on the relationships between viewer, perception, creator, participant, and art (and perhaps death) that began with the first episode, but what that commentary is trying to say is not yet entirely clear. However, there is an absolute sense that the series is building toward a culmination."[35]

I've been saying for years puppets are where it's at and need to make a come back. Perhaps I need to think about buckling down, learning to make my own decent, non-nightmare fuel puppets, and start a small web series taking a bit of inspiration from "Meet the Feebles".

They keep trying to bring back the Muppets but nothing really sticks

Asher Watson
Asher Watson

Last time they brought back the muppets, they gave it the [CURRENT YEAR] treatment.. and just remade 30Rock with Kermit as Tina Fey.

The nuMuppet movies are mostly okay-ish, but they will never be as good as the originals.

Christian Smith

That's because their recent attempts have just been covered in pozloads.

Isaac Campbell

As previous anons mentioned the failed attempts at bringing back the muppets, there's stop motion which is technically a form of puppetry. But that's never getting popular again because people like Laika, while making good to decent films, can't seem to actually advertise their products well at all.

I have seen wonder showzen I even had the series long before Holla Forums became a reality when it was a torrent on 4chan's /t/. But to add to user reply on puppets movies like little shop of horrors was fantastic. Jim Henson had the facial expressions on his creatures so well done It was like no one learn or perfected when they were working with him. Whatever he did that astounded me died with him. I only say this because if anyone did have that same ferocious talent he had in puppetry there would be more puppet shows then just children puppet shows.

Agreed. The show has been dry for me since Season 4. It started becoming so self-aware and heavy on the pop culture references to the point where watching a single episode is one of the most hollow experiences ever.

I would have been happy if they ended on Season 3. It felt more like a final season in a sense that lots of questions were answered, the Void rectified all the ideas of retconning and status quo, Penny's arc as a character (and the Fitzgeralds') went no further after "The Shell", and the show and it's world's existence itself was analyzed to bits in "The Money." From what I've seen Season 4 and later, they re-instated everything that was already established (and implied) but just upped the production and set pieces.

"The Choices" was a well-made episode, and possibly the best post-S4 episode, but was it really neccessary? We already have an idea of Nicole and Richard's early history by inference through Gumball and Penny. The relationship between each other, and Nicole and her parents, was heartbreakingly realistic, but it was nothing unexpected. We have the first depection of pre-marital sex in a kids show, yes, but Ben already hinted at it years before it aired on his Twitter. Some people like it, I like it, but it was only a realization of the lore already implied and discussed online.

Once "The Puppets" was announced, I had the feeling that Gumball was going to the way of how The Simpsons is today, relying on guest animators and the trend of the day, rather than the unique imagination produced in-house.

I just wish they'd release the OST. I don't really care about the show at this point but some of the music in it is downright god tier.

Jacob Murphy

That would be great. I wonder if Intrada can get the rights to release an OST set one day.

I think you're watching the wrong show. Maybe you're looking for SU.

I'd like to read your arguments against "The Choices." It's nowhere near perfect, but I sometimes do like it when TAWOG tries to be emotionally sentimental and manipulative. "The Shell" is unashamedly my favorite episode because it was the most impactful and memorable for me in a way impossible if it was as calculated and witty as others.

I'd like to read your arguments against "The Choices."
Not that user but
half of the episode was yet another rehashed of "The Plan"
all the alternate "futures" were just product of Nicole's imagination so her "choice" for Richard had no weight. Nothing was real.
Unnecessary, shitty retcons
Nicole's parents are the generic, boring asshole parents and a plot device
OOC Jojo
OOC Richard
The only reason people actually think the episode is good is because of the manipulative segment at the end.

Fuck off with that shit. If you have no rats/mice nearby, then no disease. And, that doesn't excuse my point.
Now how about you actually argue for why this shit is "good" instead of the trash-heap argument you presented.
