Who cares? The guy’s been hounded enough already. Why are you going to the mat for a gaslighting stalker who cites sex offenders and calls people pedophiles when he starts losing arguments?

For gently caress’s sake, it’s a thread for a TV show about rich as gently caress cartoon ducks, why are we still talking about one miserable dink who’s been gone for nearly a week now?

People were stupid, sometimes. They thought the Library was a dangerous place because of all the magical books, which was true enough, but what made it really one of the most dangerous places there could ever be was the simple fact that it was a library.

What are you talking about? I’m perfectly happy he’s gone, like I said, he was annoying, and I certainly don’t want to bring him back. Why are you acting like I ever said any of that? The only thing I was commenting on was that he was generally a pretty mild troll at least in this thread. I guess if saying “he was a mild troll but he’s gone so now the annoying poster is gone which is good” is “going to the mat” for him then whoops ya caught me.

The only reason I brought it up is because I noticed the new posts made in the thread talking about him.

Apparently BotL had a little fanbase in TBB and CD who were vocally decrying BotL's banning "for having different opinions" before the revelations about the stalking came out. I'm guessing nine-gear-crow was reading you as one of those types because your initial post on the subject read very much like the ones defending BotL in the now-closed QCS mod feedback thread.

I've been rewatching Darkwing to refresh my memories of that show. (last saw it like during it's first run. I've been nabbing the comics each time I see them in the dollar bins, etc at comic shops.). The direction I -wish- that could have been gone was to have her play the role of "raven"-type in the "Justice Ducks". Not sure if that would take away from Morganna orr not though.

Would she fit in with being a Stevie Nicks duck? lol. Felt she was far more of a scene kid.

...

I'm insanely curious btw, how a Darkwing reboot would look. The orignal show is quite good but it existed in a pre-Batman TAS world. I see a lot of promise in the villains, gossalyn and darkwing himself within the show. Not to mention giving Jim Cummings more work is always a positive.

They were contemporaries, DW started in 91, B:TAS in 1992. Even then, DW took quite a bit from the Tim Burton Batman.

They really did. Lot of the backgrounds in that show have that feel. Took a lot from "The Shadow", etc. Mixed in a bit with the Tex Avery/WB standards as well.

It is why I wonder how a reboot would indeed look considering how unique the show was for it's time and how many different "groundbreaking" cartoons came after it.

There's a small joke in one of the episodes I watched where a "TV Exec." and Gossalyn Mallard break the 4th wall. Gossalyn suggests doing a spin off of her character with a new show. This is responded negatively by the TV Exec telling Goz that "No one would watch that" or something to that effect. (Gossalyn then pretty much looks like she's about to throw down and rightfully so!)

This amuses me to no end NOW considering how DT 17 and programs like Gravity Falls, Steven Universe, etc are now written.

It'd definitely be weird, since originally Darkwing Duck was a play off of the Batman movies, and it was a thing back then where you could just do a fun little parody series of a big media property, but now it'd implicitly have to play off of the marvel movies because Disney owns half of everything and likes to keep things in-house, but the marvel movies lack the seriousness of the Batman films to play off of.

I'm sure there could be a way of doing it. I see a lot of potential in the "Justice Ducks" concept for example (an idea for a show that was proposed along side Darkwing that sadly never took off). You have Storkules, Gizmoduck, etc already established. You could even re-introduce Morgana as someone to take on Magica now.

I see just a lot of potential fun windows that this remake has opened up. The question would be is if "The Mouse" is interested in pursuing them as much as the fans and people involved with the show are.

DW is part Batman, part James Bond pastiche, just like DuckTales was riding high off of Indiana Jones (which itself was referencing Barks). I'm sure they could make it work. Whether or not someone wants to spend money on it is another problem.

Darkwing already had a Dark Knight Returns parody where he thought he lost Goslin and then became so tough on crime that he made his city into a surveilance state, shot people for jaywalking, and beat them up for not eating vegetables.

Also the Boom Studios comics were actually pretty funny, mostly.

And then the comics made it even darker by revealing that throughout the multiverse that the Canon Darkwing was the only version not to have lost their Gosalyn

I have yet to read the comics (namely due to wanting to be sure I'm refreshed with the universe created within the tv show again)

I do know that "Time and Punishment" has a plot similiar to that but I got much more of a Judge Dredd vibe off of that episode.

Killing me to not have even read the comics....yet btw. Even the covers are beyond enthralling. I have a stack of 'em ready to go when I'm finally caught up.

Man, I'd love a classic TaleSpin reboot, but on reflection you'd have a real tough time trying to get Disney to sign off on a show that has straight-up dogfights with machine guns and anti-aircraft artillery firing everywhere, and the animated dogfights were one of the most appealing and memorable elements of the original show (To me when I was watching as a kid, anyway )

...On even further reflection, what I actually want is just a new Crimson Skies, but unfortunately that probably has even less of a chance of happening.

Buddy, I've been waiting 16 years for another Rogue Squadron. Flightsim games are a dying breed.

I guess it's probably for the best that kids' cartoons have been pretty heavily demilitarized from how they used to be. Batman the Animated series was probably the last cartoon to have realistic guns. Ever since then they've just had futuristic space lasers.

In general, Launchpad was more stupid on Darkwing Duck than on OG DuckTales, but a better pilot.

On the other hand, Darkwing Duck Launchpad was apparently running his own mechanic shop, and built the Thunderquack himself, before he'd even met Darkwing.

It funnily enough makes a bit of sense for Launchpad to improve in that department even after his concussions start to pile up. (it was only hinted that he used to work for Scrooge in DD) Especially since he no longer has an employer with an unlimited budget for repairs and replacements.

Having now just seen "Whatever happened to Della Duck"? (Basically I like saving new episodes as little "gifts" to watch when I want to).

I do have a semi-rhetorical question to ask.

Why is this show so good? In theory I should be nowhere near the target demo for it and I would be far more interested in a drama or comedy (or both in the case of "BoJack Horseman").

Yet the animation is great, The voice actors do amazing work and there seems to be this insane amount of care towards the source material. I know it's a "kids show" but it doesn't so much feel like that.

Is this more of a trend that animation is going towards? I must say I rather like it.

Seems to be, yeah. I doubt it will become the standard because it takes a ton of work writing stuff this intricate, I think of it as prestige cable dramas but of kids shows. If you haven't yet, I suggest you check out Gravity Falls, where my AV comes from. As I understand it, a lot of the people who work on Ducktales worked on Gravity Falls first, and it has a very similar sort of feel.

FuzzySkinner posted:

In a nutshell, yeah. Adventure Time was the big success that really convinced companies that it was worth it to make cartoons with an older audience, although you can really trace the trend back to Flapjack, which had a pretty spectacular crew that went on to make half the big 2010s boom of shows. If you zoom out further, there's the way that anime had always been producing stuff for an older audience, and many earlier cartoons designed for older audiences were anime-inspired, including Teen Titans, where Matt Youngberg the series producer of Ducktales got his start directing.

Add into the picture the way that Disney started experimenting with more raw shorts with their classic characters. For a while, they were sort of afraid of risking their image, so the classic characters were mostly locked away aside from the most sanitary conditions, but they changed their minds. I think maybe the astonishing success of the remake of My Little Pony might've had something to do with that.

Basically the producers of most of these shows are at the age to have nostalgia for their childhood and the big companies have learned to keep an angle open for older fans, in addition to the overall specific target age raising. Webby, Huey, Dewey, and Louie seem significantly older than they were in the 80s.
