The Notebook That Reveals the 2007 Cartoon Network

I unearthed a fun read that displays how Cartoon Network marketed their shows and company 10 years ago.

You really are 12yo
Chowder was shit and worse than Flapjack, and Flapjack was barely decent.
You're just lucky I didn't called EE&WE shit too because I'm sure as hell I didn't liked that thing as a kid, but I'm pretty sure that's just me there.

This is where it all went downhill

I guess I was one of the five people who actually enjoyed Camp Lazlo

Squirrel Boy was okay, as far as I remember. I never understood the hate for it. Because it wasn't Duckman?

Hunter Lee

Squirrel Boy was mediocre as far as content goes, but looking back at least it was watchable if you had nothing better to do, can't say the same about the current programming

Flapjack was pretty good, user, most people who shat on it are prudes who don't like grossout but it put real effort into being gross.

tbqh I believe the reason I didn't liked EE&E was because as a kid who was sitting watching the TV these adventures of kids having fun outside was really annoying.

Cameron King

Was Re-Animated movie really that famous? I hated the character design and the damn kid.
Also, at this point CN went full retarded about quantity so quality started to drop.
I have 2 honorable mentions about Flapjack: That episode with the mermaid and some candies that granted wishes and the episode where FlapJack went to the east, drank some ocean water and thought he was at the edge of the world. Shit was fucked up. Also, there was that episode where Knuckles replace the mast of the ship with himself and the story that involved it. Flapjack was pretty good as gross as it was.
Because it wasn't Duckman?
Pretty much. I guess there was a lot of expectation.

it's okay, you were clearly too young to remember those shows anyway.

as crap as these shows were, they had more charm and effort than the shit that's on now.

I'd rather have this an TTG.

It may not be Dexter's lab, Johnny Bravo, Cow and Chicken, and PPG (when it was good) but hey. better than this crap.

The fact that Samurai jack had insane ratings during Season five shows that people care about quality. It's the company that doesnt. They want good enough and hope that the audiences will shovel shit down their gullets as long as it's the only thing available to them.

Did Squirrel Boy got a TV movie?
I say so because I remember a show I glanced at when I was a kid with really good animation for the time and similar character designs… all I remember is.
Anthro animal is in a truck with the sun setting in.
Later he's with a kid on a bunk bed checking a Laptop.
Then again, all I can remember is particularly pretty animation, and being on Nick.

I checked them a couple years ago just to be sure, except for el Santo, couldn't find that one, they're still as shitty as I remembered them.

Even if these execs have grown ridiculously risk-averse, they can't have seen S5's results and not started thinking.

I remember this one segment on Cartoon Network where they would show all these old cartoons. Like one segment was dedicated to the Tex Avery cartoons and went over the details behind them.

So were you jealous of them?

Camp Lazlo was ok to me. Lazlo himself is way too positive and gary stuish for my taste though I do find some of the antics of the platypus, the camp counselor and the elephant Raj kind of funny.

I remember watching an episode of that show but the arstyle was weird where at one point they showed something that was supposed to be a parrot but it didn't look anything like it. Still I like that show.

have a random link from google for the season debut
tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/daily-ratings/saturday-cable-ratings-march-11-2017/
The debut alone pulled 1.55 million viewers just on cable TV, while the rest of the episodes kept pulling above a million viewers.
For comparison, when AS did that bait and switch with Rick and Morty on April Fools the ratings plummeted to aproximately 100 thousand viewers.
Imagine just how many people must have watched SJ if cable TV, a dying medium, got such high ratings.

And that's the season where it shoehorned in a shallow love interest and ripping off the ending from an anime.

You're using "prude" incorrectly. People like Enter, i.e. autistics, didn't like it for the gross-out.

Julian Perez

Still making it better than everything else that is on AS and CN.

However low effort shows with moderate ratings are still breadwinners because if they cost next to nothing to make and get half the ratings of a better made show, the profit margin is better. Samurai jack is more expensive than say Rick and Morty. R&M isnt a horrible show, and it's fun to watch, bu SJ was better.

CN is still not going to make better shows. They will see SJ's success as more proof they need to pimp out their back catalog more than create anything of quality.

Then hand the shows over to incompetent interns instead of "primadonnas" like Genndy.

That's how we got nuPPG. Expect more of your childhood to get raped mercilessly by retarded execs.

100% cartoons compared to Nick's 26%
Nearly 1 adult for every kid watching
Cartoons appeal to everyone, crossing generation gaps and language barriers.
Talks about the success of cartoons at the current times while showing clips from (rival) companies successful in that same medium (The Simpsons, The Little Mermaid, An American Tail, Beauty and the Beast, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?)
Backlog 3000 half hours of toons. (1500 hours or 8.92 weeks)
Promoting HB making new cartoons, which only last 21 episodes (PoDW) and 6 episodes (Fish Police).

Times have certainly changed.

8-10 at night kids watch cartoons
8-10 is now adult swim
We'll never have to worry about scrounging for cartoons!
They're now having to sustain 2 channels on nothing but Adult Swim, which is mostly live action, rick and morty, licensed fox programming, as well as the occasional licensed anime and Teen Titans GO.
lol they're entirely different channels now, huh. Fucking crazy to see that HLN wasn't actually just CNN 2: electric boogaloo though, that blew my mind.

Oh boy, I'm sorry that a children's cartoon show wasn't mature enough for you.
I'm sure that adult comedy is much mor-.
Oh wait, it's nothing but dick and ball humor, sprinkled in with muh vagina humor from the cunt comedians, mixed with dude weed lmao.

It's almost like most cartoons are just garbage made for kids, least all the ones spergs would bother giving the time of day to, anyhow.
