And not even a good waifufag show either.

What is a GOOD waifufag show, honestly? Because I agree wholeheartedly... MEDIOCRE as fuck, if not outright trash trying to be funnier than it truly isn't in the worst of times.

Well, I didn't know this until this evening. There was an attempt to make an American version of Sailor Moon with live-action footage alongside the animated bits. It was deemed too expensive and the pilot episode remains locked away by the animation company.
Reminds me of that one time there was attempt to market Gundam to America at the time by rebranding it as the Dozzy bots it so surreal to see what could've happened.

Nobody's been able to find the damn thing in all that time. The footage shot at some event long ago is all that remains as far as we know.

(I should note that "Saban Moon" is the name given to it not because Saban was involved with it, but because it looked like an attempt to cash on Power Rangers and the like. Saban probably would have just dubbed the original.)

It's a shame when things stay locked up pretty good. Both this and Doozy Bots were obviously "By Committee" dominated efforts and made to be an inclusive as possible, hence the poor uses of those handicapped people.

True there. The actual company behind making that pilot was called "Toon Makers", but certainly wanted to go after what Saban had already.

So apparently Frozen 2 really sucks or is great depending on who you ask. Seems mainly to do with the final third of the movie.

*crosses fingers* Elsa Troons out, Elsa Troons out PLZ let her troon out.
Actually...
You remember in the first movie where she runs off and basically exiles herself? That, only this time it’s treated as a good thing. Also the younger sister willing almost floods and destroys her kingdom because of something a guy did two generations ago.

I'm beginning to wonder if they ever even finished it. We have the cels and some information and test footage, but in my experience, sometimes it means that's as far as they got. Or maybe the final product is well and truly lost.

So another Ralph Breaks the Internet situation then. Thanks, needed a reason to see it less.

Glad to see Frozen didn't need a sequel after all. Not surprised by this truth, either, to be honest. Thank you.

Before Spongebob became a thing there was a point in time where Nick wanted to clean up it's act and be known for Disney-esque family friendly positive message shows. So all the stuff that's associated with classic Nicktoons kinda got the axe.

Rocket Power stuck around because it was inoffensive.
Which is interesting since (the times I've seen the show) the characters in Rocket Power were negative, unlikable jerks.

"Comedy" network and its money burning subsidiaries, now on a permanently sinking ship, plugging their holes with podcasts, crappy animated shows, a fuck ton of booze, and colored monkeys. Now with more dick pics then anyone asked for.
