  2. Well he made it a point to say that adoption still exists in this universe, so my guess is that parents constantly die as a result of the faulty infrastructure the kids make

  4. I assume so they don’t live without a slave...
    Oh god, what happens in the situation when a 12 year old starts hitting puberty? Do they force their parents to take dirty pictures that they can then swap for pictures of other kids parents?
    fuck I hate that I had this thought, this whole thing gets more disturbing by the second

  5. Your dirty thought just gave me another dirty thought: In this fucktard universe Do kids bathe their parents? Also do parents run around naked after they get done with their baths?

  6. I think Enter said that parents have the traditional role until their kids are old enough to walk and talk. There’s a comic that showed Linda (Autumn) and Robert being miserable taking care of toddler Timmy (Max) and baby Sally.

    Though I wonder why the parent gives up their authority just because the kid can talk now? Are there nazi police kids patrolling houses to see if parents are obeying their kids? Why not just be a parent behind closed doors and outside act like the child?

  7. You know how this could work? Make it a cabbage patch kids type thing where the kids are born from a seed or something and they only grow up in some rare circumstance, so the kids are actually older than the adults. It still be stupid, and that would make them Sprites or Fairies, but it would be easier to explain and raise less questions

  8. This whole story and concept behind it is a huge headache. I'm not sure how Enter thinks any of this makes sense.

    I question how many people will call him a hypocrite for using common plots that he normally frowns upon?

    Edit: when growing around goes live, I mean, and has an episode or two out. Like that'll happen...

  9. Honestly I'm past the point of caring about the concept of Growing Around. There are cartoons with wackier concepts that turned out good. The only problem is that focusing so much on the lore highlights the flaws. Ideally Enter would just roll with the idea and have its shortcomings be carried by high quality writing. But that's exactly why I keep coming back to all this, because I know he's never going to improve his writing to a good enough standard.

  10. He won't improve on something he likely feels he's already great at, but that's why having editors is nice or having more than one opinion. I still question the odds of him trying to do the kickstarter again...

  11. This kind of Freaky Friday shit only works as a one-off because it makes no sense anyway. You might as well just say lol it's magic I don't have to explain shit because the moment you do the explanations just get creepier and creepier.

  14. The whole Technocracy series is basically his rationalization of his fear that he won't be able to get youtubebucks anymore one day.

  15. he also seemingly doesn't realize that Technocracy = Scientists and the sciences dictate social and economic policies and thinks it means that Social Media/technology has Undue social influence.

  17. The wackier concepts still have adequate writing.
    Honestly, at this point if truly wants to put out a quality product, he should quit trying to write or direct and just become a producer. That way he can put together a team who could hopefully do a better job while still getting the final say on everything.

    I doubt he’ll try Kickstarter again. The big problem with it originally was that he was too arrogant. Asking for $100k for one pilot episode is insane, especially when Long Gone Gulch showed up with an original concept that had better art and actual sample animation for their pitch and only asked for like $35k. His patreon and youtube money could finance a low budget pilot, but I don’t think Kickstarter will ever give him enough for a full budget episode.

    It could work in theory if it were to take a muppet babies approach where it was well established that it was all make believe, but he doesn’t want that

  18. I doubt it as well, but if he does...he needs to aim for a lower goal. 100k was just crazy. Personally, I wish he did have some sort of pilot for us to go by, so we can understand this idea alittle better. But like you said, it's probably not going to happen.

    I don't get why he couldn't use his own funds to provide the animators for a simple pilot...it doesn't have to be anything spectacular. We just want to see the story and how it plays out.

  19. It was $350k for the one episode with no plans on how to make more lol. It was funny how he justified the cost by saying Long Gone Gulch had cheaper animation costs because the creator was an animator. Which may be true to an extent, but they weren't saving $350k. What's funny is that if Enter enabled flexible funding or whatever it's called, he'd have $10k right now that he could use to fund a short animation or a series of graphic novels.

    What animators? He was never in contact with any animators as far as I know. His plan was to wait for money to come in then hire multiple animation studios to make short clips, then decide which one he liked best and go ahead with them but he couldn't name any animation studios when he was asked. Man, now I want to rewatch the indiegogo streams because of how absurd and ignorant they were.

  20. The plan he gave was that Growing Around would get its own separate Patreon, and that it would pay for the next episodes.
