Pirates of Dark Water *very hastily* resolved the issue of the titular dark water (as they were alerted to being cancelled early due to how expensive the series was), though given how hasty it was, it can easily be amended.
I thought it was a half-measure? Like the hero's home was restored (or half-restored) but the rest of the treasures became harder to locate for some reason and it just halter the advance of the dark water.

A lot of cartoons are accused of making kids dumber, but an actual study found that Johnny Test did make kids who watched it dumber.

He plays for the dreamers that forgot how to dream, and the lovers that forgot how to love.

Yeah, the main inversion was that Dexter's Lab was good.

Season 1 (which was produced by a different studio that later seasons) was halfway decent and apparently the change in production studios had to do with the CW merger so I can easily imagine an alternate reality where they went "gently caress it" and had the show be a 1 season wonder. Then someone who was fond of season 1 found the Monkey's Paw...

I'm sure some CN suit looks at the cost-return ratio for Jonny Test and got dollar signs despite basically any ratings it got was because it was literally 90% of what Cartoon Network showed for years. (Similar to Teen Titans Go now)

It's basically a lovely knockoff of Dexter's Lab, yeah, and pretty much everything people hate about cheap Flash animated cartoons.

cartoon network was never involved in Johnny Test's production (it was made for Kids WB initially, then some Canadian channel after the show switched studios), they just had the rights to air it in america

It wouldnít surprise me if it was also to gently caress over the production and VA crew just before theyíd hit some legally-mandated minimum number of episodes to get a pay hike.

one of the most powerful non-historical aspects of wizards is that it starts with the world being engulfed in a massive explosion that we are told was caused by "five terrorists". this is the last that we ever hear on the matter. who were these five terrorists? how did they destroy the world, and why? we are never told. the five terrorists are not mentioned again. bakshi seems to think we don't need to know. and, he is drat right

Since the film seems to have struck a chord with you, you might care to know that Bakshi has actually spoken a little about pursuing a sequel.

"Yeah, Wizards 2, Iíve written the script. Iíll probably rewrite some of it, but it has to do very muchÖ

Wizards 1 was about the state of Israel getting formed, and what might happen with the revolution and pollution and destruction. Here we are, Wizards 2 is about the madness, absolute madness. I mean, Wizards 2 continues where [Blackwolf] gets beaten, or does he? Suddenly every other tribe in the world is coming after you." - 2015 Interview

Who's to say if anything will come of it, though.

Bakshi is definitely one of those guys who if he was younger would be learning Toon Boom and Blender to make animated film completely on his own. Itís ridiculous the amount of labor that went into traditional animation, like Bakshi had to start off as a cel cleaner, whose job it is to remove tiny pieces of dust from the animation cels. Even more laborious and mindless than painting cels...

the man's mad. his results are endearingly bizarre, but the sheer amount of passion and work that goes into everything he does is undeniable. and he's still at it!

i really am sorry for bringing the topic of the shoah into this light-hearted thread like i did, i know there are other posters here with similar history who just want somewhere to talk cartoons and am so sorry for shattering the mood. i was (incredibly) unaware of bakshi as an artist, the content and the context of his work, and knowing that i'd probably liveblog the thing itt in my own irritating way i tried to choose the film that, from its wikipedia summary, sounded least loaded. please understand i was posting in real time and actually don't have anybody nearby to talk to about this very specific topic irl so just offloaded emotionally on the forums as i am wont to do. i promise not to do it again in this thread, it's not the place for it. i might talk bakshi, but will keep it light.

just to finish, for interests' sake, this is the wikipedia summary for wizards

quote:

Wizards is a 1977 American animated post-apocalyptic science fantasy film written, directed and produced by Ralph Bakshi (Bakshi Productions) and distributed by 20th Century Fox. The film follows a battle between two wizards of opposing powers, one representing the forces of magic and the other representing the forces of industrial technology.

The film is notable for being the first fantasy film by Bakshi, a filmmaker who was previously known only for "urban films" such as Fritz the Cat, Heavy Traffic and Coonskin. The film grossed US$9 million theatrically with a $2 million budget, and has since become a cult classic.
note the complete non-mention of nazism, or any other historical content directly present in the film. this is why i'm troubled by how this movie is remembered by non-jewish audiences, such as the animation fans who've recommended it to me irl and whoever wrote the (very carefully written) passage above; because i don't know if they deliberately omit/downplay the holocaust theme, or if they do so accidentally because those parts just somehow didn't stick in their minds

and that's all i will say on the matter. please forgive me!

I enjoy the effort posts on that stuff. I'm working on a post about some animation documentaries I watched recently, especially since on of them is unavailable in the west. Animated movies are movies, they can deal with serious stuff and we can talk about them in the thread devoted to it.
