Why doesn't /co/ talk about these shows more often when most of them have proven to be popular?>because they're slice of lifebut you talk about hey arnold, bob's burgers, the simpsons, spongebob, and king of the hill all the time
>>120277730Little-to-nil amt. of Waifus
P&F is great but I'm annoyed it's become the favorite cartoon of Pewdiepie's kid fanbase.
>>120277730SpongeBob and Hey Arnold for nostalgia while Bob's Burger's, The Simpsons, and King of the Hill are shows for adults
>>120277730because I only know two of those shows, and one of them made the finale an aesop about letting dangerous criminals run freely into your country, so
>>120277730one is phineas and ferbi've seen commercials for the bear oneno clue what the top two are
>>120277751>Big City Greens Gloria if you’re into sticc, green milf if you’re into thicc (among others) >It’s Pony Helen Bramley >Phineas and Ferb Too many to name. >We Bare Bears Mrs. Park, Ranger Tabes, various one-offs
>>120278013Okay, this is epic
>>120278076It's from the MML PnF crossover if you're interested
>>120277730>but you talk about hey arnold, bob's burgers, the simpsons, spongebob, and king of the hill all the timedon't forget pic related
>>120277730Why is Phineas and Ferb with these literal who shows? >in comparrison of courseThose cartoons are boring trash,(not including Phineas and Ferb) We Bare Bears might be one of the most boring and politically correct tame trash cartoons to ever be produced in cartoon history. No wonder no one talks about it and Big City Greens is just slightly better but in the same boring position.And the pony show is just extremely forgettable.I don't know what you're talking about with including Phineas and Ferb I see consistent threads here and there. Those other cartoons listed are just too uninteresting to make threads about. Especially We Bare Bears.
>>120277730>but you talk about bob's burgers Barely.
>>120277730How is Spongebob slice of life? By those standards so is Ren and Stimpy.
>>120278140>>120278148I suppose Phineas and Ferb gets talked about as much as Bob's Burgers then? Because PnF threads get to the bottom of the catalogue quickly
>>120278140What makes a cartoon “interesting enough for discussion” to you? ‘Cause it seems to me like you’ve never actually sat down and watched Big City Greens or It’s Pony.
>>120278172Yes? SpongeBob is (mostly, you can argue that the specials aren't) slice of life in an underwater setting.
>>120278173>I suppose Phineas and Ferb gets talked about as much as Bob's Burgers then? Not even. PnF threads definitely had an uptick in the months leading up to and directly following that Disney+ movie, but the most recent threads still thrive off of waifuposting. Meanwhile, Bob’s Burgers is still regularly airing new episodes, yet its threads get even less attention than PnF’s on average. It sucks to be a Bob’s fan.
>>120278173Usually it's waifu/lesbo ship shit but that's still 10x more threads I see than Bob's Burgers.
>>120278222What the hell is slice of life? Spongebob is the last thing I think of shen I hear slice of life.
>>120278230Fair point. but i will point out that iirc the pnf movie only got one thread while the promos leading to the movie didn't get that much traction.
>>120277730Sometimes your show doesn’t lend itself well to long term discussion, which is then replaced by porn dumps and weird fan art. These shows don’t really have that sort of material, so without any new episodes, there’s not much to talk about.
>>120278189I have watched a few episodes of Big City Greens on Disney+.It's just not good it's uninteresting and ugly looking. Tilly is the only good thing I like about it. It just a cartoon that doesn't operate like a cartoon.I'm sure other people on /co/ have different problems with the show but the reality speaks for itself, unless it's a shitposting thread about Gloria, no one really makes threads about it. It's just not good enough or bad enough to consistently talk about.
>>120278284>the pnf movie only got one thread Now that’s a lie
>>120278360oh yeah, i forgot that screenshot. it generated a bunch of short-lived threads. could've generated more memes, though
>>120278316>Sometimes your show doesn’t lend itself well to long term discussion, which is then replaced by porn dumps and weird fan art. Get ready, Long Gone Gulch stans...
>>120278346>It just a cartoon that doesn't operate like a cartoon I don’t follow.
Only think I know about Big City Greens is that everyone bara lovers [spoiler/] loves the dad
>10 IPs after an hour
>>120277730Is PnF slice of life or sci-fi?
>>120278460>what did he mean by this?
>>120278460This just proves OP’s point. Most anons on /co/ would rather coom, bait, or go on and on about the same lore-heavy shows that have already been discussed to death.
>>120277730They can't compete with Loudkino
I love BCG, and have been curious to check out It's Pony. There's just not as much to discuss about these shows, I guess. There's not too much continuity so you can't really speculate. All I know is that apparently BCG has some Chip Whistler lore but I'm only early 2nd season in my watching.
>>120278443To be fair, he is pretty great.
>>120277730They’re pretty boring aside from Phineas and Ferb. And that horse cartoon looks ugly.
>>120278641See, that’s the problem with online cartoon fandoms. Theories and speculation are valued as the “best conversation starters,” when you could just as easily discuss favorite/least favorite characters, episodes, waifus/husbandos, behind-the-scenes tidbits on each show’s crew, or just comparing other cartoons that share the same network or streaming platform. I would LOVE to have BCG or It’s Pony threads more often, but I’d need other people to actually talk about it with first.
>>120278641>but you talk about hey arnold, family guy, the simpsons, spongebob, and king of the hill all the time
>>120278682>easily discuss favorite/least favorite characters, episodes, waifus/husbandos, behind-the-scenes tidbits on each show’s crew, or just comparing other cartoons that share the same network or streaming platform.Too boring cartoons for that
>>120278674>a stylized, storybook-esque cartoon “looks ugly” This is the average /co/ browser you’re usually dealing with.
do you think /co/ thinks the shows are boring because it doesn't appeal to them as adults? perhaps when the kids who watch these shows grow up, they'll endlessly talk about them here
>>120278701Yeah sorry, it's hard to get over the tumblr noses.
>>120278693So explain to me what makes a cartoon “not boring” in your opinion?
>>120278701Is ugly a style? Because yeah, I guess that’s stylized. Just looks like shit. >>120278714Doubt
>>120277730>Spongebob >SoLDo you faggots know what SoL even mean?
>>120278721pic-related gets talked about on twitter
>>120278716Again, THIS is the average /co/ browser you’re usually dealing with.
>>120278717Some spice, some pepper, some flavor. None of those shows except PnF have that. They’re just dull. I don’t wanna see a story about some idiot living in a city or some bears or a horse. Gimme something entertaining. Fantasy and sci fi is nice but compare those shows to something like Dan Vs, relatively grounded and episodic but Dan has flavor. >>120278733Good for them but I’m not watching that shit
>>120278752>I don’t wanna see a story about some idiot living in a city See, I can belittle a show too!
>>120278782>exclamation pointsDude, nobody cares about your SoL. Deal with it
>>120278782>>120278802How does BCG differ from Dan vs when they both tackle similar topics?
>>120278821They do not at all, don’t bother comparing
>>120277730Because these are good.Bears can be boring. Ice Bear is best one
>>120278061That’s not a waifu, that’s just an ugly man
>>120278782Remind me again why this couldn’t have been an adult cartoon instead? >appealing, non-derivative art style >likable [adult] main cast >episode conflicts and premises adult viewers could find relatable How this show ended up on THE HUB of all places is beyond me.
>>120278654>To be fair It’s pretty easy to come up with possible reasons for why OP’s examples are largely ignored, but why does Rick and Morty rarely get threads during hiatuses? The Owl House, Amphibia, and Steven Universe have done just fine over the years. Hell, Infinity Train still thrives despite basically having been cancelled.
>>120278974It got a new season
>>120277730Those fuckin's bears are boring as fuck. BCG is good enough to eat cereal with.Phineas & Ferb is a classic, it's Teen Titans Go without the mean spirit, and it's Sonic Boom at its finest.It's Pony is fantastic but sadly underrated.
>no lore>no feelings>no continuity
>>120277730Its Pony is kino, BCG is awesome its my fave show, P&F is a classic but is too repetitive and I dont like we bare bears at all, Panda and Grizzly are fucking annoying
Is WBB only popular because the bears are cute? because they quite are
>>120278752Pony's the Jungian Shadow of the redhead girl, similar to Bloo and Mac in Mansion Foster. That's pretty interesting if you ask me.
>>120279080Nah, just a horse, don’t try to make an ugly show deeper than it is because you can’t stand people don’t wanna talk about it
>>120277730With the exception of top left, the other three shows get talked about quite a bit.
>>120279153Even WBB? I've never seen a thread about it except maybe the announced reboot which may or may not have happened
>>120279072Panda looks like someone who should be fucked in the ass
>>120278985no it didnt, creator's been doing fuck-all as of late. seems desperate for work come to think of it
>>120277730Phineas and Ferb is talked about often with Milo Murphy Law.The other three are garbage.
>>120279234>has lore>has continuity>has waifus>only a few threads about the shownothin' personal, kid
>>120278986>It's Pony is fantastic but sadly underrated. I’m so glad you recognize greatness, though I’d argue Big City Greens is more entertaining than you make it out to be.
>>120279072CN knows good and well that We Bare Bears is a strong sell for merch, which is why they’ll really be cashing in on that factor with the new Baby Bears spin-off. That show’s apparently gonna have much stronger anime inspiration.
>>120279257*has A waifu
>>120279257I feel like pic related is a good representation of the show’s second season. The main characters are forced to take a backseat because Dan & Swampy just couldn’t let go of their beloved Doofenshmirtz. I get it; he’s a great character. But I personally would want my second series to at least stand on its own legs rather than relying on the success of my first hit cartoon.
>>120279318You’re a legend, mate. I was worried someone would instantly respond with Melissa or some shit. Yeah, Veronica and Murawski should’ve pulled way more eyes over to MML.
>>120279380I would've said Melissa too because she's the type of character /co/ likesAlso yeah Veronica is underrated. She's only in two episodes
>>120279409I’m not into 13-year-olds, but thanks.
>>120277730>even when discussing overlooked /co/, Apple & Onion is still left out Whyyyyy
>>120279500Too pure for this world
>>120279500I didn't know that it's slice of life. Maybe next time.
>>120279204green is such a pretty colour
>>120279500Manzana y cebollin, diversión total!>>120279409>>120279380>>120279304Ok, where are the lewds?
>>120279782>where are the lewds? You tell ME...
>>120279437God, I hope she shows up in this Saturday’s episode
>>120277730I only like WBB because I'm a massive diaperfur who thinks the character dynamics in the show make for good ABDL scenarios.Yes, I was also a fan of Horse Show at one point.
>>120278061>various one-offs And how!
>>120278974I don't know either. Pretty weird given the meme. I guess it's because it's associated with reddit and 4chan hates reddit
>>120277730we bare bears is probably the most lifeless and safe cartoon I ever seen. the characters are the bare minimum of the term, no wonder the show got stale after s1, every episode plot execution was the same
>>120280326The problem isn’t the main trio; they’re actually pretty solid characters and make up a strong core dynamic. The Bears were just stuck in a lame hipster setting with often redundant story beats. Doesn’t help that the show’s visuals weren’t impressive whatsoever (boring background art and lame, samey human & forest critter designs all around). Recurring characters and mildly outlandish episode concepts could only do so much in the long run.
>>120280534Is this from the pitch bible?
>>120277730HELLBOY SYNDROMEWhen a show is good enough to not cause outrage storms but don't have enough content for fan speculation and debate or hype trains.
>>120280828Interesting proposition, though a lot of /co/ say that the shows are simply boring.
>>120280908I guess you can say that boring is considered good enough.
>>120280908Eh, at least in the case of PnF, its clever, but not great. Decent situational comedy, but the jokes that aren't sight gags are too long to explain to really crack as jokes. like this joke here is actually pretty not bad. Nobody cares tho.
>>120281051Ah, that explains a lot. So sitcom-ish cartoons don't get much traction on /co/?
>>120278880Wasn't it originally going to be an Adult Swim show, but live action?
May I remind you
>>120277730P&F is very formulaic, you've seen one episode, you've seen them allBCG and It's Pony are good but not very high on discussion material
>>120278061>The 3 It’s Pony fans think this is attractiveAre you guys brain damaged?
>>120278061>> if you’re into sticc, green milf found the greenladyfag
>>120278346>>It's just not good it's uninteresting and ugly looking.>>Tilly is the only good thing I like about it.
>>120278654There are other guys besides him
>>120277751P&F has my waifu. You are wrong.
Co tends to be selective when talking about any group of shows Bring up the 90’s and they will sing the praises of all the good shows it brought to usBring up the current era we are in and they will have this steadfast refusal to acknowledge anything note worthy it has to offer usThey will just screech at SU while proclaiming that “animation is dead” over n over, in reality the only “dead” thing here is the substance of their point
>>120282202Sorry but country hick in big city is not interesting and played out
>>120279283Asia is the main reason why it's still thriving there and also why this shit (pictured) exists
>>120281973>The 3 It’s Pony fans think this is attractive Correct!
>>120282580Dude have some self respect, that’s ugly
>>120282351Candace Flynn is no waifu. But she is a cute daughteru and a funny slapstick character.
>>120282606Bud, if you can’t adapt to different art styles, that’s on you. It’s possible to find both Groening characters and Toriyama characters attractive all in the same breath. Helen is adorable.
>>120282351She's awesome, bros.
>>120282696I guess in the way you find an ugly as fuck dog adorable but raise hour standards a little. Sometimes a cartoon character is just ugly.
>>120282629You are speaking only for yourself I take it?
>>120282405>Blood of Zeus AAAAAAAAAH I LOVE HER SO MUUUUUCHHHH
>>120282524>>Sorry but country hick in big city is not interesting and played out>>yet only watches it because Tilly is there.
>>120282758I’m speaking for anyone not attracted to goofy children.
>>120282865I ain’t him
Simple there's nothing really to say about themThere not even anything controversial look at LGG nothing conversation on that has died the only thing that could be mention is this buffalo wings cancellation attempt and the only ones who care about that are hollier then thou anti-sjws
>>120282870>implying I'm not attracted to nearly all the female cast of P&F anywayi get your point but its either picking the one I like the most or listing half the cast
>>120282629>Candace Flynn is no waifu????????
>>120283089Dude leave him he's mentally broken
>>120282958Jesus, have you never heard of punctuation before?
>>120279204I love her earrings
>>120283129i was abuse by my english teacher this is me revenge,
>We Bare Bears
Why am I just now seeing this? Shit’s adorable
>>120283625BCG just got a Season 3 which is a sign that the show is popular
>>120283609Not really I slept with his husband.
>>120283768....only because of the ratings, online popularity is rather scarce to the show
>>120277808>>120278230>>120278360I only like the doof and perry segments. The rest is meh. Hell I'd rather watch MML.
>>120283845And? What’s there to discuss. Ph wow the farm boy said something stupi. Kids watch it, that’s it. I don’t see you whine nobody talks about Sesame Street episodes
>>120283971>>Ph wow the farm boy said something stupi
>>120283625I would love to see some of Braly's actual work from his time on BCG
>>120284077Sorry but it’s just not an interesting show. Sure 8 year olds like it, but it doesn’t offer anything to much else.
>>120279380Well, I don't blame them. Regardless of its quality, the show did not get much promotion and many people were not aware of its existence until the crossover with PnF.
>>120284458yeah me too
>>120278404Literally the only presence this show has online is porn, which probably will poison network interest in it because it won't be safe for kids to google.
>>120277730then you get the ball rolling and make those threads yourself.
>>120286304Didn't hurt Hazbin hotelI hate that show but it didn't hurt it
>>120286370Well, that’s to be expected. Porn tends to be pretty safe for most adults to Google.
Amphibia is good too
>>120286512You do know spamming like this only hurts your show’s image, don’t you? It might even turn some potential new viewers away from ever giving Amphibia a shot.
>>120286580that dude got a big ol’ nose
>>120286580I know the It’s Pony threads have turned me off.
>>120278061most of these are obscure
>>120282823Yeah, she’s pretty great
>>120287777wtf I love vore now
>>120284716Dude, the way BCG is written isn’t much different from Gravity Falls, Amphibia, or The Owl House. You really mean to tell me LORE is what ultimately determines how much discussion can be mined out of a cartoon?
4chan doesn't discuss things which are good and comfy
We Bare Bears was a decent show, can't forgive the movie for undoing character development though.
>>120289230/co/ users don't want to be happy.
>>120288614Nah, it’s just not entertaining. I watched 5 minutes of that steak episode and never looked back. Don’t throw a tantrum because people think your favorite show is boring
>>120289230Ha ha, Tilly is so silly and sweet
>>120288614How do you know that's the case? Do they have the same writers?
>>120290098The style of humor and comedic timing of all these shows feel similar enough that lore honestly seems like the main thing cutting off BCG from the rest. The Greens are funny and likable, but that’s not enough apparently.
>>120290320Haven't watched BCG but I can tell you that Amphibia's humor feels different from The Owl House. The former relies on on slapstick and extreme expressions more than the latter.
>>120290531Jenn Strickland’s stuff is god-tier. I’m actually kinda sad she can’t board whole episodes anymore.
>>120290320Shame because if been watching season one and its probably the best SOL show in a while
>>120290643I’m glad you’re enjoying BCG, anon. It gets even more fun as you go on. But do you not like the other two?
>>120281051That joke is funny because is making fun of how dull is to make that reference from Kubricks' 2001. And, if someone doesn't get the reference, it's just weirdly funny to see some crabs doing that.
Less than two days remain...
>>120279961Chip looks so weird without his shitty goatee
>>120290707Oh no I enjoy those two just as much. I enjoy both Amphibia and TOH. There no real contest between the three really. Honestly I should check out pony the only think that turns me off is the girls voice actress. Looking forward to Saturday though any idea sweats going to happen my guess is that Gloria is going to move in with the greens
>>120291097Yeah, DiCicco has become a little played out lately, but I like her as Annie. It’s Pony is a very sweet show that can also be surprisingly creative and funny. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.
>>120277730BCG is moderately good, sometimes bogged down by classic sitcom elements, which is only a negative for an adult audience.Pony has same issue as BCG but worse, leading to even less discussion than BCG gets, in addition to GR15 shitters flooding threads.PnF is over, but when that final sequel movie came out a while ago there was a lot of genuine discussion.WBB is zoomer schwarbage.
>>120291466>schwarbage lol, never heard of this phrase before
>>120277730There appears to be significantly less to talk about with the shows in the image compared to what you listed. Not to mention that I've only seen the bottom two and only really got into P&F. For SoL shows to get threads, your most common talking point would be discussing would be antics or situations. This includes shippers, but their threads don't always bring the same discussion other shows get.In the case of P&F, I think people discuss it enough in other threads that they don't need one dedicated to it. It's also relatively old and a lot of anons have exhausted their invention / inventionator of the day in threads past. It still gets threads, but yeah, nowhere near as popular as other shows.In addition to the generic SoL talking points, the following shows get more threads because:>Hey arnold has several over arcing plot threads between episodes. Also has massive amounts of HEART.>Bob's Burgers is either newer and or way more popular than in pic related. Also somehow waifuism.>The Simpsons and spongebob can be endlessly bitched about how old good, new bad. They're also some of THE biggest cartoons, period.>As a Mike Judge cartoon, KOTH is grounded in ever relavent satire. KOTH is more popular than anything in pic related. People love inserting Hank and his friends into everything, including shit like Jojo.
>>120282580Ew, talk about a butter everything
>>120292100>Also somehow waifuism. Why do you say this as if you’re surprised
>>120292962 “Point”? Seemed like SEVERAL points to me!
>>120293197You don’t have to fucking yell
>>120293216S-sorry... I’ve been a little on edge lately
>>120277730those shows are more aimed at adults or take themselces more seriously. hey arnold has "real" plots and problems, p&f and wbb are not based in reality at all, BCG is also very silly.
>>120293529Given /co/'s demographic, I can see it now.
>>120292100I also want to say, Loud House wouldn't get nearly as much traction if people weren't fucking horny. If all the sisters were animals with no real feminine characteristics, there would be much less talk.
>>120293624ikr. If you didn't know they're a family, you'd think it's a harem.
>>120293688Doesn't help the creator's into that shit. SoLs only get as much talk as they do because of shipping n shit, because the stories are usually shallow and the world is basically the same as our world.
>>120293809>Mrs. Puss is one of the sexiest cartoon cat women I’ve ever seen >tfw her source material more or less exclusively limits her r34 to incest shit The few artists who draw solo lewds of that woman are my saviors
>>120293901Built for incest shit, used for incest shit. She could never be brought into the world without going through Savino's head. Deep down that's what the show was secretly about, and that's the only reason anybody over the age of twelve watches it.
>>120292100So you can argue that Hey Arnold does indeed have lore.
>>120292100>I've only seen the bottom two You oughta fix that, bruv.
>>120294023Lore is an overused shorthand, but yes. There are plenty of histories and stories between the show's entire cast. People fucking meme on DEEPEST LORE, but pretty much anything with continuity has or can be described to be "lore".>>120294073Life is too short to watch everything, not to mention, I have to watch Fooly Cooly for the 50th time. Sorry.
>>120294141Is that pic in particular from FLCL? I’ve never seen the show, but I’ve heard good things.
>>120294330You betcha. It's 6 episodes long, a coming of age story, with really cool and often experimental animation.
>>120294428>It's 6 episodes long holy shit really? there’s no “ova” or whatchamacallit?
>>120294467There are two 6 parters cosplaying as FLCL that came out more than a decade later and sucked ass. FLCL was explicitly made to just be the 6 episodes, any continuation was doomed from the start.Also OVA = original video animation. Basically the Japanese direct to video. The original FLCL was an OVA.
>>120294617>two 6 parters wtf
>>120294428Are there waifus by any chance? It’s totally fine if there aren’t, but I’m just wonderin’...
>>120294789what anime doesn't?
>>120282405Only 3/8ths of that list is actually any good, and 1/8th is Hilda which is a tepid but ultimately inoffensive series..
>>120293809Well.... Unfortunately it's one of those things that keeps the show (in 4chan's way) thriving.
I like cartoons, especially when they are funny and make me laugh hahah
>>120295266Good for you
>>120295549and what about me?
>>120296083What about you?
>>120297461If you think PnF is meh, what's your opinion on MML?
>>120278701it looks like shitty early 2000s Canadian cartoons
>>120297561no it doesnt
>>120295266yeah me too haha
yeah but Amphibia really does feel wholesome and fun, like family wise with great comedy topped off with mystery and stuffoverall quite impressive
>>120298416But Big City Greens is also wholesome and funny. Does the mystery aspect really make all the difference? I thought Amphibia reminded /co/ that “filler episodes” can still be fun in their own right. That show can be enjoyed on a whim and in the moment, much like Big City Greens can.
>>120298525I found it neither funny nor wholesome.
>>120297775Is that a nose or a pimple?
>>120298525yeah Amphibia and BCG showed wholesome slice of life can be fun and so can mystery and lore
>>120298616Didn’t care for that first episode. Dropped it. End of story.
>>120298625Aren’t almost all first episodes less better than the rest?
>>120298625Dropping a show after just one episode—especially when it’s a mere 11-to-22 total minutes—seems a little much, wouldn’t you say? Not tryna force you to give it another go, but I do think you gave BCG an unfair assessment.
>>120298637>>120298677>NOOO YOU HAVE TO WATCH IT ALL TO DECIDE WHETHER YOU LIKE ITSorry but no, I do not care for it. Should have done a better first episode if they wanted people to be into it
>>120298707I wasn’t interested in The Mandalorian after watching the first episode, but because of the praise I’ll give it another shot.Same with Over the Garden Wall
>>120298759That’s your issue
>>120298707I’d say give it 3 episodes. Also a lot of comedy shows tend to not be that good at Season 1 because they were figuring out which kind of comedy works
>>120277730I don't know what the first two shows are and the last one there is about gay bears.
>>120298791Elaborate? Just telling you my experience on trying to enjoy a series despite initially dropping it after the first episode
>>120298844>and the last one there is about gay bears Is that supposed to be a deterrent?
>>120282351Aww what an adorable crown
>>120298874willy nilly silly ol’ bear
>>120298874If you like slice of life gay bears, that's the show for you.
>>120299415Then just say you find the slice-of-life genre boring and call it a day. I’m not understanding what them being gay has to do with anything.
>>120298570Yeah, the noses definitely take some getting used to, but I stopped noticing them after a while. It's not just the shape, I think giving the nose (and ears) a different color from the rest of the face was a mistake, makes it stand out too much. But really you get used to it after a while, just like you get used to BCG characters not even having noses.

P&F ran for too long.WBB is only good for the Korean Loli.
