    Unconventional or unpopular opinions you have

    I'm pretty sure that Tenchi Muyo was one of the first anime series to use union voice actors; some of the actors such as Sherry Lynn were mainly involved with Western Animation voice roles and not too often with anime.

    Tom Ascheim era predictions

    Adult Swim will lose Family Guy this year and Bob's Burgers in 2023, which would significantly affect Cartoon Network with regard to air time; perhaps Cartoon Network will continue until 10:00pm with a potential cutback in Adult Swim programming. I highly doubt weekday evening and Saturday...

    Cartoon Network begins in a new foray into preschool

    I would like to see Cartoon Network go back to airing a massive amount of variety. Preschool programming was still airing even during Cartoon Network's peak years around the late 90's and early 2000's alongside the Cartoon Cartoons, anime and action cartoons on Toonami, the various Warner Bros...

    Cartoon Network begins in a new foray into preschool

    Regarding the current direction, I wouldn't be surprised since Mr. Ascheim actually worked at Nickelodeon's Noggin and Sesame Workshop. Cartoon Network had preschool programming during the 90's and 2000's, namely Big Bag, Small World, and Tickle U, but the network focused mainly on older...

    What are cartoons do you considered meanspirited?

    I would say that CatDog gets my pick for being mean-spirited in nature. The brothers were constantly being harassed by the Greasers, Rancid Rabbit, and even Winslow. Cat would sometimes get beaten up for events he didn't cause, and other times, he would get away scott free. The relationship...

    Ren and Stimpy: Adult Party Cartoon

    Even though I really enjoyed the original R&S, Adult Party Cartoon wasn't very appealing. Thankfully, APC only lasted six episodes. Many R&S fans downright despised the series due to the extreme increase in vulgarity.

    Who is Cartoon Network's "Mickey Mouse"?

    Unfortunately, Cartoon Network never really had a character that defined the channel. For the 90's, I would say Scooby Doo and Looney Tunes came close to being icons for the network. At first, Cartoon Network always bragged about its tremendous variety of animated series during the 90's and...

    One-Punch Man or My Hero Academia

    If these shows (OPM and MHA) had equivalents in Western Animation, I would say that OPM has much in common with the Powerpuff Girls and The Tick: they are superhero parodies and focus on the humor. MHA would be very similar to DC's Young Justice and some of the Marvel shows, which focus on...

    How is this acquirement going to affect HIDIVE and other streaming services? I wonder if they will start receiving more attention now that Sony has acquired Crunchyroll. I'm probably thinking they will offer more attractive pricing to potential customers. Another major issue, how do you think...

    I'm probably thinking that prices for subscriptions will increase since there is less competition now. In other words, there is now a monopoly on anime streaming.

    Why the hate for Disney's Doug is stupid.

    I'm pretty sure I remember watching Disney's Doug on Disney's One Saturday Morning or Disney's One Too back in 2001. I didn't know about the Nickelodeon version until a few years later. The Disney version focused on the other characters and not just Doug; the stories were very interesting when...
