"Moral Orel is a Stop Motion animated show that first aired on Adult Swim from 2006–08 created by Dino Stamatopoulos. Originally conceived as a satire of sitcoms from The '50s and The '60s, and designed to resemble an Affectionate Parody of Leave It to Beaver (not Davey & Goliath, despite the art style), the show, despite copious amounts of Executive Meddling, ultimately evolved into one of the darkest pieces of Western animation." - TvTropes |
I'm binging my way through season 3, loving the tone shift. Episode after episode mindlessly and Alone caught me off guard to the point where I just stood alone in a silent room processing the episode for about as long as I'd spent watching it.
It's entirely possible I've never been hit this hard by an episode of anything before. So many questions as I continue to sit in this silent room.
Why is the perspective of Nurse Bendy rarely explored in media? Particularly the aspect of using age regression as a coping mechanism.
Why is Orel literally sexually assaulting and impregnating people treated as a joke in early season 1, but the victim's perspective shown in season 3 enough to have the series killed?
I guess there really isn't a point to this posting, just shouting into the void as I process. I suppose the connection between all three stories is that all three characters have been inflicted sexual violence in one way or another, but characters that INFLICT sexual violence are treated as jokes earlier in the series.
I haven't seen anything that happens after Alone, so no spoilers please.
was it on purpose? i kind of understand why someone might do something like that maybe??? like being self destructive or something, but i dont really know exactly why.
I see a girl in tik tok that have read the script of the unreleased episodes , and i wanna know if more people read too and when i can read
EVERYTHING BELOW ARE MY OWN INTERPRETATIONS, NOT FACTS OR CANON
The obvious is that voice actor killed it, but we should focus just on scene. Clay is destroyed and his mask is slipping. He starts venting to people who he ,,needs to seem perfect" from outside, not even for his role as a mayor but just for his own ego. He starts venting in his rant way. They react. If they react that means they care, right? For Clay reaction, even negative, means caring (Looking at his relationship with father. Especially that they threaten him. They notice that's what he wants. They don't know how much their negative reaction and attention mean, they aren't aware that much about his warped love views. Here comes the most relatable part. They go away. Clay tries to get their attention back by mocking them: ,,Yea, run, get out of here! GET OUT OF HERE! Cowards! Hahaha! Look at ya-". It doesn't work. He is getting alone again ,, Where are you going?! Get back here!" Here his voice starts to come from mocking to holding back years ,,You come back here! Show me that you have one ounce of testosterone between the three of you!". He gets no reaction at all. Nobody cares about him. He doesn't get any sign of warped love or intrest. That's so fucking relatable. Not getting ANY sign of attention. I know its subjective but this scene made me realise how much of myself I see in Clay. Not Nature, even tho it was also relatable. I find this scene to be so emotion packed. I love it. I come back to it sometimes. That's probably it.
TL:TR: Sad, bad Man gets ignored during drunk rant-vent and real life sad, bad man relates to it.
It's very close to moralton, but it looks like it's in New Orleans. Statesota kinda takes Missouri's place and new Orleans is a bit further down in Louisiana. Despite being right across from each other, I kinda think sinville is heavy based off New Orleans if not already in it. What do you think?
In the middle of a depressive episode, and was looking for some dark humor to cheer me up. Google gave me Moral Orel as an option. I feel worse. Whatever. I was even less happy when I found out there was no season 4. though. This show is a masterpiece, and it's unfortunate we will never see it truly completed.
PS. Stephanie best girl.
I heard somewhere that Bloberta would've ran away with the policeman and Orel's grandpa dies..and obviously Clay loses Danielle after he confesses to him in front of his whole family,
So yea, how would've that played out for the next 2 seasons?
GET MY BOY PUTTY A GIRL, I DONT WANT TO SEE HIM SO MISERABLE AND LONELYY
