Remember Cans Without Labels and Last Days of Coney Island? Both of those were terrible, and everyone assumed that since it had big names going behind it that both of them would be fleshed out in the final product, and they never were because they never cared.
Funny how awful Cans Without Labels would turn out as that would often be compared to Redline (similarly made nine years in the making, yet the difference being that Redline is a good movie).

Let me remind you that other famous (or infamous) Kickstarter campaigns with big names attached include OAXIS (an evangelical Christian propaganda "family-friendly" streaming service) from the minds of Fairly Oddparents' Butch Hartman, High Guardian Spice (a hardcore LGBTQ+ propaganda animated series) featuring inspiration from anime like Soul Eater, In/Spectre and Little Witch Academia to non-anime like Harry Potter, Dungeons & Dragons, Steven Universe and The Owl House, Dead Meat from Billy & Mandy's Maxwell Atoms (actually that did fail as Atoms went on to work for both Disney TVA and WB Animation by that point forward, and I kinda felt bad for him with his project in mind), and games like Mighty No. 9 from Mega Man creator Kenji Inafune, a third Shemue game which was almost 15-20 years in the making by that point, some shitty fanmade sequel to Tomb Raider Angel of Darkness called The Lost Revolation (feat. a 50-yo woman voicing Lara Croft), and of course Star Citizen.

No backers would even care about these projects in question no matter how big these names are, even seconds after they've pledged their donations to either of these respective projects.

I think I'm going to need a citation for that one.
Holly was a source of inside info for Lordkat's podcast like this instance. Holly was involved in the podcast like giving
Holly was involved in the podcast like giving Lordkat the link to the goodbye post from CA about Lupa and Phelous
Lordkat was essentially her ally in hurting the reputation of CA because she wanted to get revenge for being let go 1 day after surgery. But just like Allison, she absolutely deserved it and just went with the sub story with no context so she can look like the victim. Unfortunately for CA, if it's true the reason they let her go was because of Justin, it would make sense why they didn't say anything and just said they allowed her to resign.

Who the fuck decided this actually looks good?

This doesn't even look like it was made in Flash, what was this made in?

LMFAO it was made in Photoshop, my sides! Why would you ever use Photoshop for an animation over Adobe Animate? Even Ralph Bakshi wasn't this retarded when he tried making Coney Island with cells and stepped up to Toon Boom at the last minute. Looks like yet another Gen Z style production. No wonder it looks terrible.

This project deserves to wither & die.

AKKKTUALLY.... Aqua Teen Hunger Force was animated in Photoshop. That looks way better, of course.

ATHF is an exception, and even that still has limited animation.

I mean, need I remind everyone of what a typical Photoshop cartoon looks like?

And plus, that show was funny and one of Adult Swim's finest programs (and also that show as well as Space Ghost, Home Movies, Venture Bros., Robot Chicken, anime such as Cowboy Bebop and Shin-Chan, four cancelled WB shows--Mission Hill, The Oblongs, The PJs, and Baby Blues--and these animated Fox shows--Family Guy, American Dad, Cleveland Show, Futurama and King of the Hill--were one of the reasons why that program block exists to this day).

Yet ATHF works both because of and in spite of its limitations. Problem is, we're dealing with a series boasting the likes of Tom Rugger trying to pass itself off as "quality animation" being animated in a program that's intended to be used for painting and photo manipulation, and being woefully incompetent at its job.

Exactly, it's trying to be a Chuck Jones presentation without the production values.

You're going with Holly the woman who had an axe to grind against them for years and vindictively sent info to Lordkat so he could go shit on them? The woman who covered up what Jewwario did, hung out with him after he got kicked out of CA, and did a tweet memorialize years after he died when she knew the truth about what he did? The woman who lied that a dead man was her fiance. The woman who helped get Spoony kicked out of CA for telling a rape joke, but hung out with Justin after he raped Screaming Mantis? I wouldn't trust Holly to tell the time let alone about how CA committed fraud.
A stopped clock is right twice a day.

Edit: I wonder if he can get past the Tutorial faster than Spoony.:story:
Take a look for yourself.
On a sidenote, I don't get why they don't upload their twitch streams to youtube. I get not putting them on the current CA channel, but why not open up another channel just for that? It makes no sense to just leave it on twitch then let them disappear after 60 days.

Found this on a 4chan /co/ thread today. Apparently Magpie V. Raven, the victim of the Hazbin Hotel Stalker, Mixx Master / Lincar Rox, admitted that the creator of Chucky Chicken, Michael Cook was shitty to the artists on his projects.

I forgot to mention that the first Shrek movie was sketched via Photoshop between 96 and 97.

At least with people like Vinny, Jerma, Vargskelethor, and OneyPlays, they have highlights or full streams on their respective channels. Doug and his CA crew really need to take some cues from these guys.

Looking at it again, Cook got semi-competent at drawing that 1930s cartoon character face, transplanted it onto a chicken, and let absolutely every other artistic skill and consideration slide.
Magpie's background ain't hot shit either, even if it is the fast budget version.

Why did Tom Ruegger attach himself to this thing?
