yeah yeah yeah I know but Batman Beyond was really good. Started with someone dying. Those are my favorite stories, you know. Start with death so the pursuit of life feels better. Terry's *snort* dad dies, but he's still got the rest of his family, so Bruce Wayne, older than rock shit, telling him to do things as a bitter old man in a future-ass suit? That's cool, man. That opening theme. Static X. Shit. Cool.
If you DEAL in death as a theme to BEGIN with, it I dunno it lets there be room for kids to stand back and deal with the concept. I feel like the new Toonami could handle it, but no American company makes anime-style "young-adult" cartoons that are clearly not for KIDS in the shit they deal with. Frustrating fact of our current market that Anime is so badly impacted in too many places by the more unsavory parts of Japanese culture that it won't ever REALLY make the transition over here until MAYBE Tartakovsky can get Samurai Jack done. If Samurai Jack, the movie, gets made, and done, and Jack finally beats Aku, then maybe there's a future for animation here.
With Gravity Falls not sucking, and McCracken himself as far as I know doing Wander Over Yonder for Disney, Disney's back in action with cartoons, back in the vogue, and they patronage nice stuff now since Lasseter took over the whole thing. Pixar: bought by Disney, takes over Disney. Not bad. But impossible to do anything with, given that all the previous CN intellectual properties are Warner Brothers and DC to Disney and Marvel. Disney is a fucking empire. :[
So I know it's a dead dream. The show won't be revived in any sense unless McCracken were to be willing to. Play both sides of the field. Or allowed to do that in the first place. I know Nickelodeon allows overlap, but that's because it's Paramount. So it sits kinda in the middle and is weird. Like Dr. Pepper compared to Coke and Pepsi. Or 7-Up compared to Sprite and Sierra Mist. :P
Frustrating, but yeah, I don't see the girls coming back. Alas, alas.

u playin games w/ me boi. That episode was making fun of genre-pieces. ;P (and Liberty Belle actually became a character somewhere if I recall.)
You can't tell me they legitimately didn't go dark. Watch Speed Demon. It's on YouTube. The girls don't win, not really. They just break physics and get traumatized. :][
AND THE MOVIE. THE MOVIE TOOK SHIT SERIOUSLY. There were jokes, but there was serious shit, man. Damn it all, I wish they movie wasn't so focused on all the different monkey jokes. ;_;
Did they need that many monkey jokes? Swear ta fokkin gawd mang. The fighting was GOOD at the end but all these fucking monkey jokes man. Cut that plot from Mojo's story, so it didn't eat up most of the fucking budget. It just felt tedious, not threatening. MAN. MAN THE MONKEYS. I can't get over all the primate shit. ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff
I like the Powerpuff Girls, okay. I am the biggest fan of the Powerpuff Girls. >:[ I will fight anyone who disputes me IRL!!!!!!! (this is not true)
