Interestingly, most animators consider the 80’s to be the dark ages as it was the only time animation was solely based on product selling. There were almost no original cartoons without an intended toy line in that decade. The 90’s was when they finally managed to get away from that.Considering his views on animation I wouldn't be surprised if that's not far off mainly because Enter:
Believes Toy Based Cartoons saved animation
That the Dark Age of Animation was nothing but Scooby Doo Clones
When discussing Adult animation doesn't talk about Ralph Bakshi
That all MLP cartoons before MLP: Friendship is magic are horrible and inferior
Believes 90s Nickelodeon should not be considered a kid's channel because of the quality content.
Thinks every cartoon needs to have hidden depths/adult themes and any that are just goofy slapstick (TTG) should be taken off the air waves (Fun Fact: Enter has spread the hate of TTG to so many people that at one point there was a petition to have the TTG creators killed)
The thing is a lot of of these beliefs are commonplace among Millennial cartoon spergs and were around before Enter came around. Given how a lot of them were struck down by Viacom/Hasbro it wouldn't surprise me if Enter (who was involved in cartoons due to his love of MLP:Friendship is Magic) saw some of these videos and decided to ripoff them so he wouldn't have a job. It's highly suspicious a lot of his earlier videos were ripoffs of MosBros Studios Top 20 Worst Spongebob lists. To quote the Simpsons It really makes you think
He hates Hannah Barbara’s era, but calling the time filled with Scooby Doo knock offs shows how little he knows about Scooby Doo’s importance. Yes, Jr had knock offs. Jabber Jaw, Speed Buggy, Josie and the Pussy Cats etc. but Scooby was actually Hannah Barbera’s answer to the criticism of only having action shows. It being about modern teenagers doing a relatively mundane task was ground breaking, and ironically, none of the knock offs kept to that mundane formula. But even with the knock offs, it was still a minority genre compared to what was out for the 60’s and 70’s
That’s actually why I don’t like most anime. Say what you will about their stories and subject matters, or the detail of the characters, the actual animation quality is usually some of the worst you will ever see outside of 1960’s Hannah Barbera. Usually it’s one good scene and that’s it, lots of cost cutting in that industry.He really doesn't care about animation, though. The only time I can remember him critiquing character design flaws or anything to do with the art side of cartoons is his Problem Solverz review, and even a half-blind chimp could tell you why that show looked ugly. You'd think someone who was really passionate about animation would pay attention to how each part of a cartoon fits together, not just how mean spirited the plot is.
He did comment on the low budget nature of that one hurricane family guy episode, but that was it.
