    I wasn't necessarily talking about the fact that it's a cartoon duo, even though that does play a factor, it was moreso the humor and premise of the show and everything seemed like another Ren and Stimpy.

    Still doesn't resemble it at all. The humor is completely different. It's more like slacker/stoner humor without the drugs. It could easily be on Adult Swim. Ren and Stimpy is basically a wannabe old school cartoon that actually seems like it, at least with the John K. episodes. They don't reference anything past the 1960's.

    Regular Show is more Clerks like. Actually, yeah... that's the example I'm looking for.

    One Tree Hill. It's so stupid and dramatic and annoying... yet so addictive...

    Wasn't that kind of like how Degrassi was?

    I have no idea. I've never even seen Degrassi.

    Now that you mention Degrassi, definitely that. And *braces self* Keeping Up With the Kardashians. I may have posted this in this thread already but, they're just so entertaining I can't help myself.

    You'll probably never know how much I HATE the fact that I actually like the Pony Show. It's... it's zombifyingly good. The back off, stay away, you've been warned sort of good. I blame the internet for making me that morbidly curious. And that *&^% Dr. Hooves T-Shirt I saw at Hot Topic. That gave me the "Maybe it would be good" notion. You see... THIS is why I hate having to see everything I can. I might like something I shouldn't. But You'll NEVER know how much I hate myself for caving in. I TRULY do. On the plus side, considering that people have Honey Boo Boo and TLC's fat freak of the month type shows ad guilty pleasures, I shouldn't be so ashamed.

    Still... for me to list ANYTHING as a guilty pleasure, you know something is wrong. I don't usually feel bad for liking anything.

    Also, I kinda feel conflicted about Funky Phantom. On the one hand, I love to just toss out the entire 1970's animation decade, especially some of the stuff Hanna Barbera did at the time, and I'm a huge HB fan. I saw the Saturday Morning 1970's volume one collection used for 4 bucks, and gave it a go (at least it had a Jetsons and Batman cartoon on it, if nothing else.... and a Scooby-Doo Movies episode). While I really have a distaste for the Scooby-Doo knockoffs (Speed Buggy and Goober aren't terrible but I'd never even try to watch them on YT when I'm bored), something about Funky Phantom was actually enjoyable. Maybe it was the slapstick of Elmo the dog and Boo the Ghost cat, or the fact the crew was refreshingly NOT like Scooby's gang (they were kinda stupid, vitriolic best friends, and the girl was a bimbo... sort of dysfunctional). Plus I love how the "It's not really a ghost" reveal can co-exist with an actual ghost.

    So to sum it up, I have WAAAAY too diverse a taste in animation.

    Yo Gabba Gabba...it's creepy and horribly made and they darn-near-ruing the Rainbow Connection, but it's so bad it's almost funny how absolutely not the slightest bit of effort went in.
  11. Drtooth

    Drtooth Well-Known Member

    Yeah... people like Weird Al Yankovic, Matt Chapman, Mark Mothersbaugh, Jack MacBrayer, Evan Dorkin, and Jack Black are well known for phoning it in. :rolleyes:

    What dose the rainbow connection have to do with Yo Gabba Gabba?

    They sing it in one episode worse...Paul Williams himself ruined it.

    My distant brother was supposedly on that show last year... I never saw it, but I heard that he was. O.O

    Maury used to be an OKAY show... that was back when his show had far more variety to it, other than paternity tests every episode.
  16. Drtooth

    Drtooth Well-Known Member

    Yeah.. Maury. If there was a thread called Shows you hate, but you REALLY hate, it would be number one on my list. Do we really need paternity tests every episode? And must they air 2 episodes per day OF said paternity tests in syndication?

    I thought you like him and the song!

    I do Colleen, but I thought he of all people should sing it in the traditional way.
  19. Collgoff

    Collgoff Well-Known Member

    What kind of traditional way?

    Two words! The Voice! I don't really like it much, but I love watching it. May be familar with a lot of songs they sing. I have the guilty pleasures of this show.
