how is the new Tom and Jerry cartoon?

Eh...not very good, IMO. I only saw a little, but it was obvious they missed a lot of what made the original funny in the first place. This has been happening to T&J for a long time, though, so I guess it's no surprise. IIRC, it wasn't as bad as the movies where Tom talks...

I think everybody agrees that the Bayformers are awful.

Love Dexter's Laboratory! The sheer amount of creativity added in is just amazing.

I have a theory of how Dexter actually has a Lab. Supposedly, he gets the equipment from NASA. NASA was trilled to see Dexter's intelligence but since Dexter is too young, they can't recruit him as an astronaut but instead offers dexter to make equipment to benefit them and so that's probably the reason why he has to pay the bill for NASA due to the cost of the equipment Dexter uses to make things for NASA and since Dee Dee breaks into Dexter's lab all the time, the bill was charged for 200 million dollars.

But its just a theory so don't bother with it.

@SuperMalleo by the way, I've been meaning to ask you where that Mario avatar animation is from? Is it from Mario VS Donkey Kong series or is it based on some sports mario games? Because if you made that, its really awesome!

@Artwark Actually it's from a short fan-made video called Luigimail: One Instrument. The animation is pretty impressive, even for Mario standards. Check it out yourself:

@SuperMalleo I like the animation but the story right now with episode 1 isn't marioish.

DAMM IT NINTENDO! WHY CAN'T YOU MAKE A MARIO TV SHOW?!?!?!?!?!? AND not that Super Show one, use this new one!

Looks like Cartoon Network, Sega and Pizza Hut are celebrating the Powerpuff Girls's 15th anniversary in Japan with cute keychains and plushies. More can be read here.

Japan really loves the Powerpuff Girls these days, do they?

@Artwark Yes i agree with you. Nintendo should definitely make a new Mario TV show. And not like Sonic Boom.

Yeah, the show was so popular there, that it got it's own anime and manga.

TBS is now syndicating reruns of Robot Chicken during the afternoon (2 P.M. central), so that's a thing.

Steven Universe is the best plot driven cartoon on television (that's still airing new episodes).

For those of you discussing El Tigre, Nicktoons is currently airing it on Sundays at 3PM CST.

Sounds neat. Also, The art style looks like one that could...grow on me if I gave it a chance? The backrounds are nice at least and the character designs are...unique-ish?

Yeah, the artstyle gets wonky in some episodes, but in a good, expressive way. The music is amazing, but that's a given since the show is by Rebecca Sugar, who wrote some of the best music for Adventure Time.

There's also a new show coming in November called Over The Garden Wall, but it's a 10-part miniseries airing across 5 nights.

Now OTGW actually has an art style I can dig. The character designs aren't much different from stuff I usually dismiss, but the use of color really attracts my eye.

In fact, I was gonna muse about how I like so many different art styles but usually think most modern cartoons since 2006 look pretty bad, for reasons I can't even pin down. Now I'm wondering if maybe it's just color and texture usage/shading. Most cartoons these days look flat and simplistic for the characters, albeit often with more detailed backrounds, which winds up just distracting the eye. Old Hanna-Barbarra cartoons used to do that to some degree, too, but at least then it was more of a technical limitation/time constraint than anything else. Now they just use a lot of bright, flat colors even when the show is supposed to be a little more serious. Combine that with cheap animation and character designs that are cute or simplistic even when it might not be necessary (Just because you made it work in Samurai Jack doesn't mean you should use 'em in Sym-Biotic Titan, Tartakovsky!).

To put it simply, I think my problem with at least more story-driven cartoons is that the art doesn't feel like it fits the tone, or at least sets a tone I don't like. To be fair, I probably shouldn't diss the shows based on that, but I'll still probably dismiss most of them. It's mostly about me being picky about what I want to watch.

I guess what I want are for more shows that have a healthy mix of serious moments and comedic moments, while still staying focused on whatever stories they're trying to tell, and have the visual style feel like it's meant to compliment, even excentuate the story they're trying to tell. It's not impossible, and I'm sure I'm overlooking good series that do this already, but I find it so difficult to find one that sits well with me. Hopefully that new mini-series turns out to be good. I'd be more than happy to watch it. I should look and see what time it starts in November...

I haven't been paying much attention to Over the Garden Wall but all I've ever been herring about it's upcoming debut is positive so I'm looking forward to it. Once I have free time I'm gonna start catching up with these new shows that look watchable. First and foremost Steven Universe. The character designs are my main draw to the series. Specifically Garnet. Dude. She looks so cool. I prefer the style now to the pilot episode.
Saw Clarence mentioned. That's another one I'm looking to check out. Reactions have been mixed on that one but from clips I've seen it doesn't look too awful at all. Well, the art style isn't too pleasant but the comedy seems to work. For the most part.

@Retro_on_thego Clarence is a random show, each episode has nothing to do with the last. It does have comedy, but it comes off to be stupid. I do laugh sometimes, but not much. I wish Mad was still on

Garnet is cool, but I always think her afro resembles a loaf of bread. XD

I believe the next episode of Clarence is supposed to be the first without creator Skyler Page as the voice of Clarence. He was fired earlier this year after an unfortunate series of incidents that are best left unmentioned.
