But if you went back in time and killed Joe Murray to stop Rocko from ever being made, and thus causing certain people to enter the industr, leading a chain reaction of other people getting their big break, would that not drastically change what shows would exist right now in the present?

Still, it would be nice if these cartoon pitch bibles could be made by people who had least had some basic understanding of art and color theory? Even if it's 101 shit. It would be one thing if they were amazing writers with no artistic talent pitching these shows, but they're not. They're non-artists and bland writers who get the chance to run a show and heavily depend on their crew to carry their ass.
>>
>>119160879
pitch bibles probably need a lot of drawings done fast and there's no telling if the concept would be picked up no matter how good the art would be

its probably standard practice for pitch bibles to just be mostly doodles

you gotta remember most cartoonist aren't illustrators, doesn't mean they don't know how to draw, they're just trained differently

try getting a concept artist to draw people and you'll understand how uneven most people's skills are

But I'm not asking for full illustrations or complex concept art. I'm asking if people who were interested in making a cartoon could at the VERY LEAST draw something like pic related: Simple, charming, basic understanding of design, appeal, composition, and nice colors. All wrapped up in a very easy-to-do doodle package.

I just think it's absurd that there are so many people who want to showrun a cartoon and can't even draw a flour sack. It's like wanting to be a conductor and knowing jackshit about music.

>pitch bibles need a lot art quick
Pitch bibles can be made over the span of months to years. They're not turning around a quick weekend-only freelance gig, you know. It's not unusual to hear that someone was putting together a pitch bible for half a year before sending it to Disney. Are you really going to imply that if you gave someone who could at least doodle very well a month to put together a pitch bible with art that is only as complex as pic related, that wouldn't be enough time to fill up a few pages of characters, backgrounds, and write out episode ideas?

You do realize that the executives that review pitch bibles don't give a rats ass about the quality of the art in said bible right?

Not a lot of original IPs produced over there. 70% are reboots/spin-offs/revivals/adaptations, while the other 30% are short-lived original Nicktoons typically created by rando cartoonists whose pitches for the Nick Shorts Program miraculously made it through development hell. Monsters Abroad could've easily been a part of OP's timeline, and I'm still waiting on that Planet Panic full series pickup

Mitch Schauer was involved with cartoons long before Rocko, though.

I heard from behind the scenes rumors that Planet Panic got picked up but they're working to see if it should be in the form of one 22 minute episodes or two 11 minute episodes. I hope they don't shove it onto Netflix. Their recent president seems to have a hard on for Netflix.
Side note, i also hope they pick up Harpy Gee and Space Mission: Danger.

Why would making it a Netflix exclusive be a BAD thing? Don't we want to make it as accessible as possible? I know Glitch Techs's situation was Nick's way of cutting off the show without giving it a chance, but other cartoons like Hilda or the HBO Max exclusives (live-action ones, too) can easily succeed via both streaming and good marketing.

I WISH I could directly support It's Pony, but it'll just be heading toward purgatory at the rate we're going.

Read up on this legend, anon. The others you mentioned are Middlemost Post (an original Nicktoon created by John Trabbic III, a NuSpongeBob and PGBC board artist) and Santiago of the Seas (created by Niki López, a color stylist on The Fairly OddParents! and Harvey Beaks). I'm not sure who the green puppet chef's supposed to be, but the Variety logo's supposed to represent Nick's new Star Trek cartoon.

>>119170890
It's showing how various individuals did work on some given show, and then while doing so made contacts that they would use to either make or work on some other show. This is how networking in the real world works. The idea that people do everything in a very coherent and concise way, usually by explicitly stating that they want to do X in a public manner, is a media fiction. That is not how the real world works.

Nick could've had their massively popular original cartoon that skewed around a slightly older demographic long before Amphibia and The Owl House became the Top Modern Cartoons™. It's almost hilarious just how badly they botched this one up.

Almost.

Nick's biggest problem is that for some reason they refuse to grow up with their audience.
>>
>>119165031
This is pretty much the only correct one I've seen. A lot of people don't know that John K and Joe Murray were the two major advocates of storyboard-driven animation in the early 90s, back when the method just wasn't done (and most people who worked with John K wanted nothing to do with his methods after they got done). Spongebob and Adventure Time are the two series that really popularized the production format. Joe Murray really is the sole reason storyboard-driven cartoons are a common thing today.

And contrary to popular belief, late 90s shows like Dexter's Lab were NOT storyboard-driven (the post-revival seasons were, though).
>>
>>119176103
Bingo.

Nico Colaleo once mentioned the requirements Nickelodeon had back when he first tried pitching Ollie & Scoops:

>It had to star two best friends. One had to be the "smarter" or more grounded of the two, the other had to be the "dumber" or wackier one. If the characters were animals or creatures, they could be any age as long as they were childlike at heart, and if the characters were human, they had to be children. And that was it. They basically wanted another Spongebob and Patrick.
And while this dynamic does come off of practically every new pilot they release, the ones that actually try to be more than "SpongeBob 2.0" always get ignored and the creator loses their rights to said pitch. Nick really needs to be open to more variety among their original animated content, or else this reliance on SpongeBob will continue to be their creative downfall.
>>
>>119176491
This honestly depresses me as a guy who grew up on Nickelodeon and have been inspired by their cartoons to make my own scripts. Hilariously enough on of my ideas involved a smart and a goofy going to a supernatural school character but after i realized the two couldn't make enough episodes by themselves i decided to make it about the entire school and have each episode focus on a different student and/or staff. Reading that just makes me feel like my improvements would mean nothing to them.
>>
>>119164890
R&S spawned Cow & Chicken which spawned Billy & Mandy which more directly spawned Chowder
>>
>>119158822
Lists like this should also track when shows had a huge amount of crew from a previous show even when the creator had no involvement (like a lot of the Uncle Grandpa crew was on post-Movie Spongebob, most of the Fish Hooks crew spawned from Chowder and Flapjack). You'd also see some more interesting family trees if you tracked all the stuff the creators had worked on (like yes, Hisrch worked on Flapjack, but Gravity Falls more directly spawned from Fish Hooks)

>Hisrch worked on Flapjack, but Gravity Falls more directly spawned from Fish Hooks
That's a good point actually. Most Flapjack alumni either joined Pen on Adventure Time or JG on Regular Show. Gravity Falls was mainly staffed with newcomers and Hirsch's buddies from CalArts. Outside of directors like Rob Renzetti, Aaron Springer, and Stephen Sandoval, the only main veterans on the show were Josh Weinstein, Tim McKeon, and Carl Faruolo, the last two having come from—you guessed it—Fish Hooks.
