    I have enjoyed the new shorts a lot and thought they felt extremely faithful to the classic style

    Why does Bugs have yellow gloves? Was that something from the early years? It just looks wrong.

    In his very first appearance, yes

    In his earliest appearances, Bugs had yellow gloves, yes. I would assume they're using it as a visual signifier that they're going for old school Looney Tunes (one hopes without the racism) and not a sitcom vibe like the 2nd newest attempt at doing a Looney Tunes show.

    My wife and I finished our watch-through of ATLA (my first rewatch, her first time seeing it period)

    We may have uh

    Immediately started it back up again

    She's started getting into Zutara fanfiction, her love for that show ended up running deep

    Nearing the end of the third season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

    And folks, this season has been an emotional roller-coaster.

    part of the reason I muted star wars and all related phrases on Twitter is because of all the zutara shippers who glided into the star wars sequel fandom and immediately started insisting that reylo was good

    I applaud everyone involved in waiting till senior year for the students in Buffy to just make the dumbest and/or cruelest decisions.

    Its very realistic.

    I actually liked the sitcom Looney Tunes and I'll defend it with my life.

    I also loved the 2001 Duck Dodgers series and wish it would stream somewhere.

    Edit: The Looney Tunes Shows gave us this so it is defacto good.

    I liked the sitcom Looney Tunes too. It's also responsible for salvaging Lola Bunny and making her a great character.

    Also there was that time Elmer Fudd wanted to fuck a grilled cheese sandwich.

    Yellow gloves bugs was before he became more established as the Bugs we know hes more manic and may be the instigator in some cases.
    Chuck Jones Bugs is probably what most people our age would be familiar with

    I blame Zutara folks for my general dislike of shippers.

    Obviously they're not all bad, but that community seemed to be a special kind of toxic and loud, and the hate they came out with towards the end really colored any future interactions with anyone that ships characters.

    That's fair, I think I just got lucky in that I knew irl friends who were into it first, so my first exposure was level headed people going "Oh, this is what I think would be cool," and I found myself agreeing with them

    Once I went on the wider internet and saw people who were like, mean about it? Totally just didn't get it

    Way too much love for abusive relationships among shippers for my tastes.

    I was mildly annoyed with shippers during X-Files, then greatly annoyed with them in Buffy. Then I don't really remember any annoying me until some stuff with some vocal Psych fans hating on any love interest for Shawn that wasn't Juliet.

    Yeah that's my beef with Reylo, and conversely why I don't mind Zutara at all, because I feel like the show actually does a decent job of making that seem plausible

    I remember when one of Buffy’s writers got on that show’s Usenet group and compared Spike/Buffy shippers to serial killer groupies. That was fun.

    The writers could have defeated Zutara shippers by ever implying that Aang and Katara had mutual romantic affections. Instead of doing the opposite of that and pairing Zuko and Katara together more and more frequently in more and more emotional scenarios.

    There are like

    Multiple episodes with emotional climaxes involving Aang and Katara acknowledging their growing feelings for each other

    The Secret Tunnel episode even has the fuckin "...maybe we should kiss?" In the dying torchlight moment

    The show was

    INCREDIBLY clear the two were into each other

    Yeah like, if anything, as someone who likes Zutara, the only real knock against Kataang is that it's extremely obvious

    But even then it's still really great, because everything in that show is really great

    I'm not knocking it. I just don't really get it.

    just two beautiful, fun-loving meatheads, what's not to love

    And the Zuko/Katara scenes were never particularly romantic. Nor are they very common. I just finished watching the show in full and Katara shares like four total major scenes with Zuko outside of her life-changing Zukation.

    that also would have been good for them to do for longer than a single episode

    I get where you're coming from, but also policing the way teen girls express themselves seems...bad

    there has to be some sort of middle ground between "teen girls are dumb and shouldn't like the things they like" and "it is completely okay to romanticize abusive men"
