 OPERATION: SATURDAY MORNING CARTOONS!!!

kaiko-art:

As you may have heard, the CW11 is gonna cancel the block Vortexx, to make way for live-action family content.  What some of you may not be aware of is that this will mark the end of Saturday morning cartoons on basic broadcast television for the first time in DECADES!  Sure, a lot of the shows through the years were poorly done, but a lot of them I also really enjoyed and they contribute to a huge part of my childhood memories.  With the block being canceled, and with the news that The Hub Network is changing from a channel into only a 6-hour block in the middle of the day, animation on TV is undergoing yet another severe loss of exposure to the country.

So I postulate an idea I developed with dtoons.  The following isn’t anything official.  I am only striving to spread the IDEA of this around, to get you guys talking, and so you can form your own idea about what it can become.

What if there was a place online that showed original 1-minute-long animations, made by indie animators, of original creations, on a half-hour show… that would ONLY be seen on a lifestream on Saturday mornings??  It will be Operation: SMC!  

- a video site online would host 1 half-hour per weekend on Saturday morning.  
- each episode would be comprised of around 10-20 animated shorts from online animators.
- each short will span all animation mediums, narrative or musical video, with the only requirement being that they must be kid-friendly and give the viewer a feeling of the old Saturday morning viewing experience from childhood.  Video game-inspired stories, superheroes, 8-bit animation, stop-motion block animation, music videos, review shows, edutainment segments, etc, will be welcome!
- some of them will be an on-going series, but only one episode of a given series will show at least per week.  If the creator cannot for whatever reason make the weekly deadline all the time, other animators will reschedule their episodes to be shown those weeks in place of that.
- they would premiere them in the form of a livestream event with a chat that people can use to share their opinions watching them.
- commercials can air that advertise little known indie artists work like web comics, print comics, and other pieces of art!
- the same half-hour would repeat a few hours later for those who slept in or couldn’t watch the first stream.
- After a while, each half-hour episode of the anthology series would be reuploaded to a channel in regular YouTube videos, so anyone can watch them whenever they want.
- The episodes can optionally contain a host who is a talking TV.  The bumps will also have other Saturday morning cartoon elements like a cereal bowl or breakfast food, etc.
- When it gets more successful, they can save money to make a second animated half-hour show aimed at adults, livestreaming at a later time on Saturday.

So it will be sort of like mtvhits in the form of a show for children.  Or anthology shows like Kablam!, only online, or what cartoonhangover does! only for a livestream event!  TV networks constantly need to take animation off blocks just when more animation premieres, because animation is expensive, and a network budget cannot sustain too much for so long.  I’m not thinking of too much work.  A minute or less per episode for one creator isn’t a whole lot, and with the advent of online hubs, more profitable opportunities will appear.  

Anyone with new ideas for this can suggest them here!  Also, spread this around on other places online so producers can see it and get their own ideas going! So what do you all think

Love this!

And only five Americans were surprised.

Oddly, all five of them wear the same black robes to work every day.

A federal  judge in Utah has ruled that a member of a fundamentalist offshoot of the Mormon faith may refuse to answer questions in a child labor investigation as a result of the Hobby Lobby ruling on birth control.

The Sept. 11 decision by U.S. District Court Judge David Sam says Vergel Steed, who belongs to the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS), doesn’t have to comply with a federal subpoena because naming church leaders would violate his religious freedom.

As the basis for his conclusion, the judge cited Hobby Lobby decisions by the Supreme Court and 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, which said the Religious Freedom Restoration Act shields people from having to obey laws that substantially burden their religious practices. […]

It’s like that joke from middle school about “homework being against your religion” ….but adults.

…and actual responsibilities.

Animate like you’re doing one of those exaggerated 3D movies. Anything that comes closer comes closer, anything that goes further away goes further away. Exaggerate the crap out of that. Because look at this. It works better than any other CGI adaptation of a 2D cartoon I’ve ever seen. And don’t, for the love of god, let the software limit you. Look at how cartoons react to physics. Absorb it. Make it happen. I’m sick to death of watching American animations that completely fail to give me what I expect from the American animation industry. American cartoons used to be so off-the-wall, hilarious and physical - that was their whole appeal. That was what America did right. But that’s gone, in favour of things that could just as easily be done in live-action. Screw animated sit-coms, screw animated dramas - bring back the funny. I don’t care if it’s 2D or CGI anymore, just make it fricking funny. I should not be laughing more at Doctor Who than cartoons. 

Woah, what a cool idea.

Well blow me down. 

oh god please let there be a movie of popeye like this…

Notice how in the test animation, you never see anyone punch anybody. Violence was a frequent source of slapstick in the old cartoons and direct skin contact pulled the best impact. Hell, Popeye has those wide forearms because it emphasized the gag whenever he punched anyone!
