  1. What if we got

    The normal person in me: “aaawwww, that’s great!”

    The ungrateful cynic in me: “really? You just had to make one of them ambiguously male-looking for the foreign censors?”

      Are you surprised at this point? I think the message Disney has been saying is pretty clear, they really don't care about the LGBT community, they'll just occasionally throw half of a bone if they feel like it but they'll also be sure to bury it in case someone like China wants to enjoy it too.

      I don't understand.

      @PaddyFancy what don’t you understand?

    4. PaddyFancy


      Is the problem here that one of them looks a little too feminine?

    5. Thigolf


      The problem is that this is a half-step they can easily dodge out with minor adjustments once the episode hits less openminded countries instead of just commiting

      @PaddyFancy in this case, yes.

      Not that there’s anything wrong with effeminate men, of course not, but in this context (a children’s cartoon) it’s so painfully obvious what they’re doing here: they’re pandering to foreign markets by making it easier for them to censor it out if they so choose.

      The skinny dad has a design that’s just ambiguous enough for somebody to misinterpret him as being a woman at first glance. This allows certain foreign markets to easily change him into a woman (the larger dad’s “I’m with dad” t-shirt can be removed and, if thin dad speaks, dub him with a woman’s voice).

      This has happened in other kids shows too (Clyde’s dads in Loud House, Jeff’s moms in Clarence).

      Well its your call whether or not you want to let things happen and enjoy it.

  3. The world is a cold, uncaring place because there’s no Sonic Schoolhouse appreciation thread.

      I'm still wondering who converted their school bus into an indoor movie theater...

  4. Of all the typical plots for children’s TV episodes, “character learns a bad word they don’t know is bad and proceeds to use it” is the one that will never stop being fun to me.

      I love how creative they get with the censoring in this.

      “YOU’RE A *fwoosh*pow* MAN!”

      Nickelodeon seem to be fluent with this plot, both the Rugrats and Spongebob examples were genius.

  5. I think a good way to approach the Sonic game canon, and ONLY the game canon, is in the same way as the Doctor Who fandom approaches canon: in that there’s no such thing as “canon”, just validity.

    For example: it’s a commonly accepted belief that there are, at the very least, seven Chaos Emeralds, although some accounts suggest that there’s an eighth emerald.

      It could work for other canons too, but exclusively within said canons. None of that “let’s fit the comics and cartoons into game canon” stuff.

  8. There’s no way Hot Shelter would be able to fit inside the Egg Carrier.

  9. It’s been a while since I’ve watched any show that Cartoon Network has put out.

    Tell me: is their LGBT representation still wall-to-wall lesbains, or have they brought in any prominantly non-straight male characters yet?

    1. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      This has nothing to do with why I stopped watching btw. I stopped ‘cos I got sick of all their shows looking the same.

      I said “prominantly”, VEDGy :P

  10. “Calling my characters a ripoff of Knuckles is like calling Spiderman a ripoff of Batman” definitely ranks pretty high in the list of stupid shit Ken Penders has said.

  11. Since I know the difference between a remake and a remaster:

    I’d rather have a compitent remaster of SA1 in the same vein as the Taxman and Stealth versions of the classic games. Maybe even get the people behind those SADX Dreamcast mods on board.

  12. I received my IDW Sonic Crash Course game today, and it doesn’t have the “Free comic and pin” patch on the front.

    Does that mean this version doesn’t come with them?

    1. Big Panda

      I know it sounds like a really dumb and obvious question, but I really want to make sure before I decide whether to do something about it or not.

  13. I ordered a book off Amazon a few days ago, and spent most of yesterday confused as to why Amazon were saying it had been delivered even though I hadn’t received shit.

    I come downstairs today and am surprised to see my book randomly sitting there on the windowsill, no packaging or anything.

    I pick it up and take it into the living room planning to ask mum what’s going on, only to be greeted with a “OMG PUT THAT BACK ON THE WINDOWSILL”.

    ”What, why?!” I ask.

    “They delivered it to a house down the road by mistake and they opened it. You should leave it for about a week since we don’t know if it’s contaminated or not” she responds.


    Was looking forward to that book too.

      The news stated that on surfaces like wood, metal and others similar, the virus can live for something like 2 or 3 days. But paper or fabric can be something like an hour. It might be worth fact checking me on that one but I assume a good wipe down would also help.

    2. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      It lives on paper for up to four days according to sources I’ve seen.

  14. I’m so immature

  15. They seriously need to make a streamlined console remake of KHUX.

    The mobile version is just such a repetitive schlogfest that’s impossible for me to follow.

    1. KHCast


      They’ll do a Back Cover movie styled catch up I’m betting. It’s probably the easiest/cheapest thing to do at this point, especially so people don’t complain about them making another side game that has little to do with the main cast.

  16. Remember that April Fool were I managed to convince everyone for a good five minutes that Archie’s Champions arc got mangled at the last minute?

    That was fun.

    Wow, this isn’t even remotely funny Yah-

    *published two days ago*


  18. Pokemon Masters has implimented what is obviously their April Fools joke a day early: the regular music for the Pokemon Centre, team management and exploration sections have been replaced with three classic Red/Blue tracks.

  19. In the Rugrats universe, exactly how old does one have to be before they stop “understanding” babies?

    The oldest character I’ve ever seen interacting verbally with one of the babies is a 6-year-old.

  20. Huh, old design baby Sonic doesn’t actually look too bad imo.

    I prefer the final version of course, but this version is still more tolerable to look at than its teenage counterpart.

      When it’s fully rendered I mean.

      Could you imagine growing up from cute lil' baby Sonic to the monstrosity that was his original design? Talk about a glow-down.

  21. You uncover an artifact from another dimension. It’s the most recent issue of Archie’s Sonic the Hedgehog, from a timeline where it’s still running, and the reboot never happened.

    You open the comic. What do you see?

    1. Jack at Home

      Jack at Home

      Sonic is finally dead, killed by the metal virus, Sally becomes the protagonist with on and off boyfriend Geoffrey, meanwhile  Antoine and Bunnie have babies, Tails dates Mina, Silver secretly stalkers the Freedom Fighters, Amy goes into depression with her childish brain trauma or whatever, Scourge is king of the multiverse and dumped Fiona, Shard gets rebuilt and marries NICOLE, they have baby Sonic-bots. The echidnas never left, instead Thrash went straight into the trash, Robo-Robotnik stays with his mind gone and goes completely bonkers as Snively's puppy dog, a.k.a. the main antagonist. Rotor marries Big for fanservice. It's still a well written fanfiction.

      Another win and loss: Characters I like from the Reboot are likely gone, but character I lost from the pre-Reboot are still around.

      That and Endangered Species’ proper ending.

  22. Since we’re venting over the current crisis; this whole thing is agonizing. I’m very worried about going out due to living with an elderly, asthmatic mother, who herself is having a hard to time ordering shopping. It’s also not helping my depression none. I’m no longer able to focus on my own mental health because of the more pressing matters at hand.

      :( I can understand. What an awful situation. I hope you can get the ordering straightened out so it becomes easier.

  23. On the subject of things that could be added to a potential SA1 remake, I wouldn’t mind if they made the final story a bit meatier.

    Maybe, for instance, add an additional action stage where all the characters go around the ruined city to find the drained emeralds or something.

    1. Diogenes


      no weird gravity eyeballs this time please

    2. JezMM


      I'd dig this for sure.  Due to playing Sonic Adventure 2 first, Sonic Adventure 1's Last Story was kind of disappointing gameplay-wise (and likewise... Heroes then failed to live up to SA2's standard also).

    3. Kuzu


      It was pointed out ti me how despite needing to play everyone's stories for the final one, except for Sonic, none of the other characters actually matter in the last story.

  24. This and the Anastasia story were the only good things to come out of this movie.

    1. Osmium


      Funny, I was just thinking about Cinderella II the other day
