    For an idea of how much I hate Uncle Grandpa, it resides in the same quadrant in my mind reserved for people who like American Dad. They tell you its pretty funny, man

    those things go with whoever they're supposed to entertain. It's sorta why I'm creeped out by mlp and they who shall not be mentioned, but it seems like lil girls still get that stuff. and hell (the caveat is that they'd better be a kid) if a lil boy gets the dumb horse toy too that's fine

    I'd take more Uncle Grandpa over Johnny Test any day. I was shocked to see that they made more episodes of that thing. Uncle Grandpa feels like he should be an occasional character on MAD though rather than an actual show by himself.

    We finally caught up on Steven Universe over the weekend and I have gotten to like it. Admittedly it didn't immediately click with me like Adventure Time or Regular Show, but after giving it a few episodes (and repeated viewings of those thanks to the kid) I like it.

    My neices love MLP. They could say pony before they could speak whole sentences.

    Uncle Grandpa is a 90s ugly cartoon. The art is grimy and the humor is absurdist.

    Animation has moved past that now though so it cones off as more of a relic Cartoon Network thought might appeal to the hot topic t-shirt crowd

    To be fair MLP is a pretty great cartoon. Despite what you think of the subculture it's at least well animated, well written and is something you can watch with your kids that isn't torture. The only problem I have with it is that I'm painfully spoiled and DirecTV only has the Hub in standard def and that bugs the crap out of me.

    This is kinda a good way to describe it.

    It seems like a show that'd be on right after the Ripping Friends or something.

    I'm sorry, but Total Drama Whatever is far, far more watchable than Uncle Grandpa.

    Fucking Johnny Test is more watchable than Uncle Grandpa, and I'm ANGRIER about Johnny Test than I am Uncle Grandpa.

    I don't get a lot of the hate for Johnny Test. Like, I don't enjoy it, but my son went through a Johnny Test phase and it didn't strike me as any worse than most of the other vanilla dreck that airs on CN and Nick.

    Annoying Orange and Uncle Grandpa, though... those are just... unnnggghhh, you know? Just... uunnnnngggghhhhh.

    Steven Universe is great, though. The thing that confuses me is that the rest of my family loves Adventure Time and Regular Show, and don't get SU. And they seem like they'd have very similar appeal.

    Although I have managed to turn "If every porkchop was perfect..." into a popular household call-and-response, so there's something.

    the thing that offends me about johnny test is how lazily they just sloughed off and copied dexter's laboratory but just slightly changed the premise and which family members the plot follows

    Johnny Test is, as Naphtali mentioned, pretty widely regarded as a pretty huge rip off of Dexter's Laboratory, which is better in literally every possible way.

    Edit: Which is why I'm angry about it, but probably has something to do with the reason why I find it more watchable than the random-for-the-sake-of-random bull mess that is Uncle Grandpa.

    One thing I like about this show is the blurring of gender boundaries: it's about a boy who is a part of a girly sparkly flowery superhero team and none of the characters have a problem with this or even comment on it.

  • sarukunsarukun Mr. Bulldopps Get SchwiftyRegistered User regular
    I don't know if any of the women on that team qualify as "sparkly flowery".

  • ElJeffeElJeffe Moderator, ClubPA mod
    Yeah, Pearl is the only one who even has any traditionally female characteristics, I think, outside of attire. Amethyst and Garnet could practically be recast as dudes and nothing would have to change.

    I guess maybe the theme song is kind of sparkly and flowery.

    (I love the theme song.)

    "...and STEVEN."

    Yeah but like the team gets their powers from pink and purple gems, their canon is in the shape of a pink flower, everyone on the team is a girl except Steven, etc.

  • ElJeffeElJeffe Moderator, ClubPA mod

    I find it interesting that the Purple Puma is a big dude with a hairy, exposed chest.

    I also love the hell out of Tiger Millionaire. Just watched the episode tonight.

    Well in his final wrestling appearance Lesnar flipped the double bird to fans at Wrestlemania and quit. He basically told fans to go to hell which as noted in the episode is kind of a no no.

The only problem I have with it is that I'm painfully spoiled and DirecTV only has the Hub in standard def and that bugs the crap out of me.

    What really drew me to notice it was the musical numbers they threw in.

    Say what you will, the creators really went the extra mile with that show, and it's paid off in dividends at this point.

    I mean, pretty much every complaint about it is regarding the fans, not the show, so
