It would be one thing if he was acting like he deserved the benefit of the doubt. Frankly, he's been caterwauling like maniac. Can you blame people for reacting negatively, especially if he has a political agenda he wasn't honest about?

Guys, since that apology, a lot of people have been jumping off the hate train for Butch, including me...

Look, I still think that at times he has a narrow-minded brain, and that he comes off at times as a too good looking man, but given this recent event, I can now believe that at least Butch has still that sort of respect for his fans like before, and that he will eventually take the things he said before, about criticism, back.

And even though I don't want to come off as hypocritical, if I do, then users on this thread, like Red Arrow, are welcomed to call me out on this thing. I started feeling kinda bad for the agressive way I wrote some things, even if I still believe in my opinion about introverts, a day after I wrote my post for the Bubble Speech video.

BTW, still think Oaxis won't be much of a success like most of you (except if Butch changes his mind and makes it an animation service).

Ya know, I want to hear what this “constructive criticism” was that people said Butch rejected. I’ve been online long enough to know that fans use “constructive criticism” as means to provide unsolicited rude comments masked as tough love, like saying “your show sucks”, “that idea is awful”, “I hate your art style”, “make it more like anime”, or “you better take my advice or I’m boycotting your show”.
But as I said before, Butch responded in a bad way. I mean normally it’s good to brush off the haters, but in this digital age, it’s better to just ignore them.

Constructive criticism can be a good or bad thing to some, and for Butch it doesn't look particularly good. I'm surprised that even when FOP had starter to take a toll in quality Butch never said much then, compared to now.

I won't disagree with that, at times this is what constructive criticism is used as, but I remember way before that Christian thing happened, that a lot of people, including PieGuyRulz, would perfectly explain why Butch's Kickstarter wasn't a good idea, for a multitude of reasons.

Butch Hartman had been working with someone named Kuro The Artist, and at around 13:00, he mentions that part of what he wrote in a letter to him ended up used in the Oaxis video. It's interesting to say the least.

Yeah, this doesn't surprise me either. It was already going to be a pretty difficult project from the start, especially when there are a lot of streaming services already well established, but the drama involved with it would definitely have made it more difficult for him to get more funding for this site.

I can't find the video. Does it not show up on mobile?

My main question is, "will the money be refunded to the supporters?" Because I'm sure the people who paid ten grand to voice an animated character in one of Oaxis' shows aren't going to be real happy when they find out this news. If Butch just hoards the money for however long it takes for Oaxis to come to fruition, he's asking for the controversy and tension to get worse.

Funny, I was thinking about this thread just the other day.

I don't get how he goes from making early FOP and Danny Phantom to this. What the heck happened to him?

Did Bunsen burning up break him?
Honestly, something about him felt off to me before Bunsen even came out. I just wasn't sure what until the Oaxis stuff happened. I think he might have let his past success go to his head.

Ugh, TheFutonCritic website is down. Now we can't find out what is premiering, especially on Nickelodeon, FOX, and Cartoon Network!
Disney is having such a bad time this month. With removing of Love, Simon and moving it's series to Hulu because it is too "mature", stopping production of Lizzie McGuire because it was also too "mature", having a "LGBT representation" in Onward and she only appears in ONE scene, few DisneyParks shutting down temporarily due to Coronavirus, their stock went down, Bob Iger left, and is being replaced by Bob Chapek
I know I’m saying this out of nowhere but, I wish The Hub was still around. My favorite shows were Dan Vs. and The Aquabats Super Show.

Cort Lane leaves Marvel animation.

I'm hoping at some point this decade, Netflix will finally pick up one of Fresh TV's new projects instead of Cartoon Network (not to sound offensive but seven shows seem quite enough).

Also if Total Dramarama does get cancelled at some point, Fresh needs to put the Total Drama franchise to rest (not abandoning it) for a little while and focus on other projects like Lucas the Spider.
