Danny Antonucci apparently isn't that happy with it, either. He still likes it, but he thinks some of the stuff MTV wanted him to do didn't work.I kinda like The Brothers Grunt. It's such a weird, gross, uncomfortable show and that fascinates me because I love weird and gross shows and movies. Danny Antonucci's artstyle really sells the unpleasantness of the brothers, with their bulging veins and bug-eyes. I get that it's not for everyone (a huge understatement), but it deserves a bit more credit.
well... there's still the Rankin Bass version. Speaking of which I'd watch the animated hobbit of the peter jackson version any dayI like Ralph Bakshi's adaptation of The Lord of the Rings. It suffered in some ways (calling Saruman 'Aruman' still bugs me) Sam and the Balrog were just awful, but it has a certain tone to it I really think works well. Shame he never finished it.
I was more talking about the animated version. You know, the version that sounds like a faggot who inhaled too much helium then had his balls kicked in. Every time I hear that voice I just get the urge to destroy whatever it's coming out of. Like nails on a chalkboard but far more infuriating.Did you ever read the Floyd Gottfredson comics? That'll explain it.

We need more episodic cartoons story-based ones suck for the most part and I'm pleased to see them falling slowly out of favor. Stuff like Wander over Yonder or OKKO where there is a loose overarching plot is fine, but trying to do a serious sweeping narrative is almost always destined for failure.I enjoy episodic kids cartoons more than story-centric ones.
As someone who loves Bob's Burgers like a well-respected family member, you ain't completely wrong, but I still admire that it's not suffering from the same BS that has dragged down stuff like Family Guy and The Simpsons so much (other than both examples being zombies.....).Bob’s Burgers has an admirable commitment to staying relatively grounded, but they can only keep it up for so long without the writing suffering. Although a lot of the current problems with the writing are unrelated.
There’s been a slow descent into sappy moralism too, which bugs me. Not every episode needs a lesson, sometimes they just needs a punchline.
