Ren & Stimpy Documentary

Last night, I watched HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY: THE REN & STIMPY STORY, a documentary on the rise & fall of both Ren & Stimpy and its creator, John Kricfalusi. And I had mixed thoughts.

I was one of many 90s kids who grew up watching the show and loving how wild & unapologetically disgusting it was (much to the annoyance of my mom).

And it was cool to watch the origins of the show & how it came to be and how it really revolutionize American animation and made cartoons “fun again”.

However, it’s disturbing & disappointing to see how John K. created something great and then nearly destroyed it by being so toxic to his crew and being a predator messing around with underage girls (seriously, what is it with Nickelodeon and predators?)

I haven’t watched the show in a while, but I do remember it fondly (especially some episodes) and though I wouldn’t say it ruined the cartoon for me, it’s hard to truly look at it the same way again.

I’m curious to know what other people thought about the documentary and how they feel about the show in general.

USA Action Extreme Team original programming

USA Action Extreme Team original programming that aired as part of the USA Network's action-oriented block USA Action Extreme Team. It was launched in 1995 with The Savage Dragon and Street Fighter, then in 1996, Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm and Wing Commander Academy was added. Unfortunately, all 4 shows got cancelled, though the block continued to air until it was shut down in September 1998.

Im trying to find a cartoon I saw a while ago

I remember watching a cartoon about 10 years ago. It was in 2D animation. The main character was a young man living on a farm/estate that had seen better days. I believe he was living with his uncle and aunt. The girl he was in love with was from a rich local family that had a feud with his ancestors. The general setting was European. I remember an episode where there was a dance with face masks (maybe). There, the girl rejected a man from another rich family. I also recall an episode where the protagonist finds his ancestor's grave and the tombstone is cracked. He takes the gun of that ancestor and helps settle some sort of unfinished business the ancestor had, and the cracks on the tombstone disappear. (Maybe the ancestor was in love with a girl from the same family, I'm not sure). If anyone could help me, I'd be grateful.

Unpopular opinion: Season 1 of The Real adventures of Jonny Quest(1996) is better than season 2

There is a vast majority that considers season 2 to be much better than season 1. Although is still pretty close, and season 2 clearly wins in terms of art, animation and pace ( many episodes in season 1 have an insanely fast pace that almost takes you out of it) the overall premise is just far more interesting and captivating in season 1 than in 2. Season 1 is more grounded and mysterious, it's basically a x-files cartoon. The second season doesn't feel grounded at all, it also feels flatter and more rudimentary. I know that season 2 is more like the OG series, but i find season 1 premise just more interesting and grounded. However, the excessive use of quest world and the fast pace makes season 1 suffer a lot. Season 2 cuts back on quest world and also has a slower pace, which were good decisions, but changing the premise from season 1 was a bad idea imo. Overall, I think season 1 is the better season, although close.

Animaniacs reboot

I haven't seen the Animaniacs reboot. Would you say it's as TV-14 as the original was? I hope they've watered it down a little.

Cartoon about character visiting cemetery

Maybe someone here can help me. Does anyone remember a cartoon probably between the 90s and early 2000s where one episode the character went to a cemetery and cleared out dead flowers from someone's tombstone? After the spirit haunted them because they couldn't connect to their family anymore or something weird like that idk. It seems deep for a kid show, or what I think was a kid show
