Good theme=good show

Aaron Russell

I have a theory that you can judge a show on the quality of its theme and ending song. think of any show you consider great and then think of the theme, was it good? would you listen to it by itself from time to time just because its good? are there any great shows that have BAD themes?

and inversely, can you think of any BAD shows with great intros? every show i like has a great theme that catchy and gets stuck in your head. this method would make finding quality shows MUCH faster

I'm pretty sure a great number of 80s toy ads were bad shows, but damn near all of them had great intros.

To be honest, I don't see where Johnny Test fit because the 1st season (intro/show) was great and gotten worse onwards. Especially when they replace it with that ripoff American Idiot theme.

Say whatever you want about the show, but Big Mouth has a good intro.

Are JLA and Danny Phantom good cartoons?
Because their intro songs are shit. And yes, you may call that retard MrEnter and attack me for it.

More examples with good/ catchy intros but crappy/ shows:
Men in Black
Megaman German Intro
whatever 80s stuff, e.g. Sabre Rider
Aladdin
Extreme Dinosaurs
Dragon Hunters
Rugrats
Pokémon
Captain Planet
Flintstones
Heroes on Hotwheels

You should really check out the Japanese intro of X-Men and from the French show Bob Morane btw.

JLA has a bad intro
It's a 10 second snippet. Literally the best intro as it quickly tells you what you're watching and doesn't mess around with the already short programming time.

thats just a flat out lie, ACTUAL bad cartoons like TTG, and johhny test exist.

my one exception to the rule, is a great show with a bad theme: my little pony

Marginally related to thread:
Opening animation in that era was also top notch, as it was frequently outsourced to another more expensive different studio than the one that did the episodes.

A lot of shows like Thundercats and Silverhawks literally hired anime studios to do their openings and some of the production stuff.

Cooper Edwards

The problem with that show is that it had a few great ideas and complete Shit for execution. It has no idea what audience it wants to write to, It's got all the subtle humor of a sledgehammer, and it completely gave up on consistency in the last third. The dance sequence was particularly horrendous.
Nevertheless, it's something that manages to break away from standard formulas, so I'd argue that it's important not because it exists, or that it's any good, but that it's even able to exist in the first place, and that something will take full advantage of this creative freedom. We might eventually see adaptations of things that you'd never imagine would get them, like a completely faithful full-length animation of the original Mask comics.

user, you've been using the word Cuck repeatedly in the last five threads you've posted on here. I think you're an angry individual who's trying to get some sort of emotional response by being accusatory towards anyone and everyone in order to satisfy a psychological need that's gone unfulfilled. This is pretty standard for /pol/, and the internet in general, but what's going on with you, specifically? I'm genuinely asking what we can do to help you be a happier poster, regardless of how you feel about our kinks.

People started using it like we use the word 'fag' possibly because it's less of a slur than fag is so edgy kids can say it without having to worry about being called a homophobe of some shit. There was also a lot of shitposters who started forcing phrases like "rulescuck" because they knew it would piss people off.

I'm going to stick to using fag for general use. It's never gone out of style or become annoying. 'Cuck' got played out the moment it stopped referring to men like Anthony Burch and moot.

I remember before the exodus, there was a guy saying he was working for the company doing the DVD release talking about trying to get the full version of the song as a bonus feature. Pretty sure he found out they lost the full song somehow.

Spiral Zone. Good song and has an interesting original setting with plenty of action and risk, such as characters actually going down when hit by laser fire for instance.
Though the biggest annoyance of the 65 episode long series, it has 6 clip show episodes (original animation framing device, followed by flashback clips) and then the final 3 episodes are just made up of entirely recycled footage with new audio (including footage they already recycled from episode 64 into 65) causing the show to have no conclusion or ending which just left me with a massive bitter taste to the series overall, I just can't really recommend watching it.

that show was surprisingly dark for 80s cartoons. if I remember correctly it was about a mad scientist who uses his invention, the Zone Generator, to spread this spiral shaped cloud over the earth that transforms anyone in the areas affected by the clouds into zombies or hyper intelligent mutants if your genetic code was just right.

though I don't think anything from the 80s ever got nearly as dark or horrific as Inhumanoids. it was like a mix of Ghostbusters, Lovecraft and Journey to the Center of the Earth with a strong emphases on horror. It was pretty graphic for a kids show back then. hell there's a scene in the initial 5 part mini-series where one of the heroes gets turned into this giant lumbering un-dead monstrosity by the un-dead nightmare that is Decompose.

No perfect but here's the basic backstory for SZ.
In the far future of June 18, 2007, rouge scientist Overlord grabs a prototype high speed NASA shuttle
Fly's around the world dropping Zone Pods
These create "zones" that turn anyone in them into mindless "zoners" with no free will and obey the commands of Overlord
Seeks to take over the world by having everyone under his control
The zones also feed off human energy which is why Overlord doesn't kill anyone
There's also Zone spores resulting in a Zone fungus, don't really know why that exists
The countries of the world unite to fight a common enemy and a worldwide military effort (basically a lot of jet fighters from different countries) tries to take down this shuttle
Some fighters are lost in the process but a lucky missile shot gets through the shuttle bombing hatch causing it to crash
The attack is over but 50% of the world has now been lost to Overlord and his Spiral Zone
The only substance that can resist the zone effect is a rare substance known as neutron-90
Only enough to make 5 combat suits in the entire world
Later they make two more only by using a laser to extract excess neutron-90 from the 5 existing ones
That is why there is hardly anyone who can fight Overlord.
Most of this info is revealed in Episode 53 (out of 65)
Also happens to be another clip show episode infuriatingly enough when it starts out not looking like one
