  1. Man, that last part about imagination and risks in creativity with new ideas really gets to me. It actually makes me dislike constant Disney IP buyouts even more so, just putting on a fresh coat of paint and 'fix what isn't broken' in the guise of 'creating something original/new'.

    1. Ferno


      Im still salty about Tron being a dead franchise now. "We have Star Wars and Marvel now so we don't need to continue the live action sci fi movie franchise that was already 100% ours from the start"

    2. AdventChild


      @Ferno Also maybe taking/reviving their old live action movies and turn them into animated features like 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Escape to Witch Mountain, The Black Hole, Return to Oz, etc. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Walt_Disney_Pictures_films

      @Ferno This I feel heavily! Tron was Disney's Star Wars. Although, the Tron 3 trailer was horrendous and didn't look very interesting, It's a shame for them to chuck the IP aside in favour of their newer shinier real Star Wars

    4. Ferno


      There was a trailer? I always thought the existing one on youtube was fan-made?

      Don't remind @Failinhearts about Tron's fate.

      @Ferno Hmmm.. Maybe it was. It's been quite a while since I saw it. Still, it's a franchise that deserves more love 

  2. First Nick loses Adventure Time to CN and now they lost Butch to them too.


    1. blueblur98


      oh, how the tables have turned

    2. Ferno


      Inb4 Cartoon Network forces him to change his art style to fit in with their current house-style

    3. Strickerx5


      I mean tbf, CN isn't really any better since they lost Craig to Disney. Though yeah, that Adventure Time thing is going to hang over Nick for the rest of their days.

      left it for fucking Fanboy and Chum Chum man... like how

      But yeah, excited to see what he's working on. While Bunsen was a flop, I'm hoping that a new studio is enough to reignite that drive in him to make something on the scale of Danny Phantom again.

    4. Dejimon11


      I mean Disney for some stupid reason cancelled Yonder despite the fact that it was doing well and apparently won awards. Corporations are dumb 

    5. Ferno


      Another reason why I choose to eventually just do indie comics that have a chance at being picked up later. Atleast then I'll have a chance to finish any stories I set out to tell and not risk cancellations, etc.

      Something which has varying effects and is also far more long-term?

      I mean, global warming will make the UK much, much colder due to how we get our warmth.

      "which has varying effects"

      If anything, the consistent weird weather patterns should be a red flag.

      Maybe this'll help you understand


      Extreme weather is a negative effect of global warming. Extreme weather can go both ways.

  3. Wow, it's like Nick hadn't learn from Last Airbender.

    Yeesh, what's next?

    Nick: This Christmas, Robert Downey Jr., Zoe Saldana, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Pine, and Bradley Cooper are PAW PATROL!


    1. Teoskaven


      How about the official Invader Zimm live action adaptation where the protagonist is voiced by John Cena?

    2. AdventChild


      @Teoskaven Or Caillou portrayed by Bruce Willis.

    3. Sean


      This is a lot more light-hearted than the Avatar movie and there's not really much of a fanbase to piss off this time since Dora's target demographic consists of preschoolers

    4. Marcello


      Seems fine?

    5. KHCast


      It looks okay to me. It seems like innocent fun. 

  4. CN recently just released some original minisodes that look really promising pilots for actual series. First up Infinity Train:

    Next up is Victor and Valentino which has this Gravity Falls with Mexican culture:

    More of this CN and less of TTG.

    1. Briraka


      Dear Cartoon Network,

      I want more Infinity Train, please.

      Sincerely, Briraka

    2. Ryannumber1gamer


      Why less of TTG though? It's your new favourite show!

    3. TCB


      Holy crap Infinity Train looks promising.


    4. kirby1up


      but surely something like these can't compare to the superior ben 10 reboot series currently airing.(honestly even though I do enjoy the ben 10 reboot. if it gets the axe for infinity train or victor & valentino then I won't complain)

    5. Adamabba


      That infinity train girl looks like Frankie from Fosters home

    1. Dizcrybe


      Yeah, I'll believe this when I see it from a source that isn't blatantly biased towards Trump.

      I don't even think their actions were malicious but seriously you couldn't have waited until you got out of the city? Could you have possibly thought about this any less?

      Someone needs to get fired.

  6. Voted earlier today. And honestly, no matter who wins in this election, God is still in control, even during the politics in Jesus's birth and when face to face with Pontius Pilate. His plans still prevails and are in effect, no matter the circumstances.

    I recommend give John 16 a good read: http://biblehub.com/niv/john/16.htm

    But the verse that stands out and gives me peace and hope is the final one, v.33: “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

      Unless you're an Atheist and don't believe in entities.

      Or believe in a different god.

      Or believe in multiple gods. 

    2. JezMM


      Tbh the whole "God's plan" thing is one part of Christianity I can never quite understand.  Like if you assume everything ever is part of God's plan then what is the point of even living life, you have no control over anything, everything that is bound to happen will happen.  God is all loving yet billions upon billions of people will suffer in the only life as we know it they will ever get to have because of some mysterious plan we are unable to comprehend.  And it means you may as well tolerate all the evil in the world with open arms too.  Then you get "Christians" who are supposed to believe this yet apparently (depending on the Christian), equal marriage, sex before marriage and abortions are not part of God's plan and must definitely be intervened upon.

      If it gives people peace of mind then power to them, but it's not for me.  Trying to put myself in the mindset of "it's all God's plan", as I'd been partially raised to, when my best friend committed suicide at age 20 didn't make me feel any better about it.  It just made me think "if that's the case, I hate God and have no interest in blindly worshipping him because a book written by men told me to".

    3. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      Yeah, and that control sort of indicates He wants the country to go down the crapper, just by these nominee choices alone. I wouldn't necessarily take heart in that. For personal matters, sure, but not for global ones.

      Focusing on one side of the control while ignoring the other never really makes sense to me, and can come off as incredibly wrong when it goes to the degree of claiming to know God's will in advance, tbh. But that's another topic entirely

      You can't have one without the other

      @JezMM: Exactly. It's just a way to focus on specific things to make your own thoughts and choices feel better, while ignoring the rest for whatever reason.

      As for why accept the aspect at all, well, typically it means that in the grand schemes, what will happen, will happen. It's not exactly "everything is meaningless", as God's control mostly means he's never not in control, but he isn't exactly the only deciding factor of what goes down. Free will can't exist if, well, it doesn't exist. People's actions still matter, as if you just took this perspective of Christianity as literal and sat around doing nothing, plenty of bad stuff will happen that you could have prevented. Heck, if Christianity as a whole took that perspective to heart, no one would attempt to spread the word to anyone, and therefore, Christianity as a whole would be utterly useless.

      It's sort of confusing to try and get into words. Basically, the guidelines for this kind of relation are: God's will is, to the maximum extent, everything that he has planned will go down and nothing will stop it, and he can never really be out of control, as he wouldn't really be omnipotent in the first place then; but since the concept of free will is the whole idea this world revolves around, that will keeps a loose enough grip for our decisions to actually matter in the grand scheme of things, and the ultimate deciding factor for a lot of things. So things like personal decisions still effect those in the world around us to a degree, while stuff like disasters are mostly set events waiting to happen, in a way just like death.

      It's why I have a problem with people constantly going about saying "GOD'S PLAN, GOD'S PLAN" as it just makes it seem like exactly what you're saying, but I believe it mostly comes down to the individual regardless, and whether they accept or deny it in the first place. That's the basis of the religion's core in the first place, and you can see it reflected in thousands of people's choices and aspects of life. I won't go into examples, as it's just callous considering what the religion deals with, but in essence it's exactly why I see the singleminded mindset as more harmful than not: Your choice matters, first and foremost, and what you'll do with the knowledge.

    4. JezMM


      That does shed some more light on the concept for me, as a thing people can believe in to feel better about the world, thanks for the detailed response.

  8. Wow really unaware that this year is CN's 25th anniversary and that there is nothing on the channel to show it.

    Either Miller needs to shape up and fix this or just step down completely. She is making Stu Snyder look good at this point and even he realized how sh*t CN Real is and fixed it.

    Hopefully that upcoming Villainous and OK KO would be the turning tides, but if they get neglected like AT and Sonic Boom then, Nick is gonna beat them in ratings at this point. Also, quit it with the  toy selling angle, dang it. You're not Hasbro!

    1. RedFox99


      What are CN's ratings as of lately?

    2. Inkling Cooper

      Inkling Cooper

      What happens in the video? It's blocked in my country.

    3. RedFox99


      The guy has a point about lack of diversity of shows.

  9. Trigger Warning

    Personally, I replace Shadow and Silver with Infinite and the Sonic Boom Villagers from the show.

    1. Osmium


      Basically this is a series of jokes and observations that were old a decade ago. I'm legit surprised this video wasn't made in 2008. 

    2. JosepHenry


      Screw Attack (one person in the team in specific) is just as annoying as those characters, like goddamn they can't give Sonic a break and they put the original character just to mock the fanbase once again and get views. Also why is Cream there? Annoying voice. Sure. SHE'S SIX.

    3. Osmium


      I'd question the addition of "original characters" over Cream. Like those aren't even SEGA/Sonic Team's creations. 

  10. You know the thing that confuses me about people supporting illegal immigration and believe in climate change/global warming.

    So you like to amass thousands of people in one area esp. in cities that results in overcrowding/overpopulating, increased unsanitary conditions and increase pollution rates that damages the environment? And do the liberals/democrats have any solution whatsoever to combat it other than increase taxes?

    1. Biggs


      I don't think anyone "supports" illegal immigration, but surely recognising undocumented migrants increases the tax intake? Not American mind you. And lack of cost effective urban planning isn't the direct fault of immigrants

    2. RedFox99


      To be fair, this seems rather specific and not a general case, but I could be wrong.

    3. Marcello


      You don't believe in climate change?

  11. Um yeah...no. If I want a movie that conveys the concept of emotion, I'll just stick with Inside Out thank you very much.

      just drop the nukes already

      Oh gee, they disabled the comment section and like bar!

      I wonder why...

      wow its like a cross between inside out and lego movie...

      except those two weren't stupid in concept.

      @SenEDDtor Missile I didn't care for either President Bush myself, but it's still in bad taste to not show a little respect or don't see anything at all if you can't think of anything.  Please try to show a little more tact in the future.

      Kaze no Klonoa

      A murder mystery where GASP Sonic is somehow responsible for it without even knowing

      and then something stupid happens and literally nothing makes sense

      Well it could be like in Indigo Prophecy, Sonic would turn into a flying undead super zombie.

      That's what I was referring to. That they got Voltaire as the host.

      Nine minutes in and this video just seems to be a bunch of strawmen. No one (except for trolls) is actually complaining about Sonic 4 because "GREEN EYES RARRAGH"

      >"The Worst Fandom"

      Another video that just serves to rant against the fanbase again, eh?

      You'd think this crap would had stopped when most people praised Mania and trashed Boom: Rise of Lyric; but whatever. Excuse me while I pull out this old nugget:
