    Oh wow. That's that funniest load of poo I've ever read. Come on...that can't possibly be true, especially because one, I think a major news network would have reported somthing like that...and two, the butter knife thing should automatically scream fake. I mean, a plastic butter knife can't cut through someone's skin, and if you were serious about taking someone's organs, you wouldn't do it somewhere where other people are, and you would do it with something that is actually sharp XD

    Even if that was the case, and it clearly isn't, they can always do a show without a creator. It tends to suffer on whatever level the creator brought to the series. Sometimes it's a lot (Ren and Stimpy) sometimes, it's very little (American Dad...Seth basically does 2 voices and leaves it at that. No wonder why it's the best of his shows).

    Seems more like something on Disney's end. Someone must've called in a complaint about something. The humor is fairly adult... especially the ultramasculine creatures that have fists for nipples. That's bound to upset some bored old woman.

    Hey. I'm right. It was something at Disney's end. They just wanted to split the season up and resume the show after the new year. Alex said so himself on his Twitter feed.

    I just realized something. It's so strange that now we don't have to wait months for new episodes, and we can get 5 seasons of a show in 2 years (Adventure Time). Splitting episodes up seems quaint, and I remember when Kid's WB had to make their paltry 13 episodes a season (remember that being the norm?) stretch from September to May, and we'd get reruns three episodes into a season!

    Still, that rumor about him cutting a kid's kidney out was outrageously stupid, yet completely fitting of the style of show. If anyone started it, I bet it was Alex.

    Good to see it'll be resuming soon. It's the first new series I've watched in a while; very fun show.

    As much as I love Phineas and Ferb, this show just might eclipse it for me. I really hope it hits hard enough to gain a strong merchandising backbone out of it. Hopefully the wait won't hurt the ratings too much. It seems everything else gets a new season the second they finish another up. Not the Fox animated Sunday Night programming, that still has winter and summer breaks like regular primetime TV, but it's really something with Cartoon Network. There was barely a month in between the last episode of season 4 and the first of season 5.

    I took a look at this series... maybe it's just me, but the voices don't really seem to match the characters very well, IMO... it'd almost be like if today's version of Big Bird still had that goofy, hillbilly, Barney-esque voice...

    I like the series, even though I like P & F better.

    I was never too fond of Dipper's voice. His voice actor sounded too old for the character. He still does a good job at it though, as well as everyone else.

    I've known kids who sound older than they look. I've known older kids who sound younger than they look. Heck, one of my friends in 6th or 7th grade had the same voice as Eddie the Wetnosed Newspup.

    As for the voice acting... Kirsten Schaal. That is all.

    It's really amazing how a 34-year-old woman can pull off such a convincing (and cute) little girl voice! :D
  14. Drtooth

    Drtooth Well-Known Member

    Especially when it's her natural voice.
  15. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    I kind of think she could pitch her voice just a little bit higher, it'd be a little more convincing for a cute lil' girl, but other than that, Kristen Schaal's natural voice is fun to listen to; I know she's mostly a comic actress, but I could see her making quite a career out of voice acting.

    Speaking of whom, does she remind anyone else of Debra Jo Rupp?
  16. Drtooth

    Drtooth Well-Known Member

    She's a cast regular on Wordgirl as Victoria Best, she's Louise in Bob's Burgers, and she has multiple cameos in other cartoon series. She's a voice actor, all right. And her characters are exclusively little girls. Crazy ones. I'd say she's better at playing crazy girls than Kristin Wiig. Much better.
  17. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Well, it's like you've said before, Kristen Wiig is only good for playing either awkwardly stupid, or stupidly awkward characters.
  18. Drtooth

    Drtooth Well-Known Member

    And she's good at it. But Schaal can play someone either quirky and adorkable like Mabel and then someone extremely axe crazy like Louise (and by extension, Hazel from the short stint in 30 Rock).
