I'm not understanding what you're really saying. Are you saying that for people vacationing or living in Australia can't access American Hulu to watch?Although, Hulu wasn't available in Australia...
That's also the reason why Lachie alias Thomasfan101/Thomaspercyfan wanted to watch it but he couldn't....
Why would they be ashamed of something so beautiful???
TV Tropes is like Wikipedia. Anyone can add in anything they want regardless if it's true or not.
CLAPS HANDSHarvey Beaks has become of my favorite shows of all time. For me it did just about everything right, it had everything I could ever want out of a Nicktoon and it's like the cartoon I've always dreamed of.
I wasn't planning to post a thread on this since this tragedy happened 2 years ago but this recent video from Alpha Jay Show caught my attention and I had to give my piece on it (especially the 21:19 mark)
In it he details the show itself and how Nick treated it. First of all the majority of Nick's other shows like Breadwinners were more fast paced, zany, and over the top compared to Harvey which was basically the exact opposite. He showed a chart that Harvey after it's premiere experienced a higher ratings drop than Sanjay and Craig, Breadwinners, and Pig Goat Banana Cricket because it got lost in a sea of Nick's trove hyper and cheesy shows.
Nick screwing over cartoons because they can't rival SpongeBob in ratings which is infuriating as they are likely not going to have another show that rivals SpongeBob or Loud House especially in this age of dying cable. Invader Zim was the first show of the 20 or so Nicktoons that were given this treatment and at least it had more excusable reasons for why it was canned, because it appealed more to teens and adults, it was too expensive, and how parents complained about its content. And I also agree that Loud House may not have the same lifespan as SpongeBob has. Its humor and novelty are decent at first but gets stale fast more so than SpongeBob or even Fairly Odd Parents and isn't even as universally appealing as SpongeBob. And considering how divisive Season 3 is along with a handful of Season 1 and 2 episodes, it has a high risk of ending up like FOP whereas I think Harvey Beaks is going to hold up a lot better over time in comparison.
What makes this situation worse is that C.H. Greenblatt was partially why SpongeBob became so popular and beloved because he was a writer and storyboard artist for the early seasons. He did Band Geeks for crying out loud! And after all the great things he did for Nick he was forced to give a lecture on Cartoon Brew by the execs. Greenblatt was bold enough to call the network out. That would be like if Cartoon Network abruptly cancelled Steven Universe after like 2 seasons even though there were big plans going forward and the execs horribly treat Rebecca Sugar even though she was a part of the successful Adventure Time and then called the network out, imagine how pissed that fandom would be.
I do agree that Harvey Beaks is very much like Hey Arnold and I think it's more creative and quirky. It had the potential to be one of their modern classics if it was treated better, but instead it has faded into obscurity to the point that some don't even acknowledge it and still think that all modern Nick shows are terrible with some only acknowledging Korra and Loud House.
I'm sure Brian Robbins will turn the network around so new shows are treated better, but the damage has already been done. I'm very lenient towards the animation industry and I'm willing to give networks more chances. I actually supported Nick during the mid-late 2000's and even the early-mid 2010's but this whole debacle was enough to kill off my confidence in the network and this is the primary reason why I don't support Nick anymore, I still watch a few of their shows including Harvey Beaks through streaming and downloads to support the people who worked on these shows and because I still enjoy them but I now stay away from the network.
