  1. I heard there’s an American dub of Father Christmas where he sounds more jolly and a bunch of small scenes were cut.

    Can I see it anywhere? I feel like reviling in horror at something for half an hour.

  2. I don’t understand why TV channels need two separate feeds for SD and HD viewing. Why can’t the channel just be HD from the get-go? Is it because the HD screen somehow looks bad on an SD TV or something?

      Not all televisions or tuners are able to retrieve HD signals. It's a way to reach older generations who are too poor for HD TVs or are otherwise too stubborn to buy a new one.

      ^ That. Older people (like my grandma, who swore by a little CRT in her bedroom for a while before it broke) and those living in poorer communities, like with all technologies, are the ones to fully adopt last.

  4. I’ve finally seen the original, non-glitch version of this scene! I can die happy.

      Nick UK sure must have a thing for cutting corners with their channel's time slots...

    2. Panda Claus

      Panda Claus

      @Supah Berry what’s that got to do with anything?

    3. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      I'm saying that since you imply you'd never seen this part intact until now, and from prior times it's mentioned seeing a part of an episode you hadn't seen before in normal airings, I assumed that cutting out small parts of episodes in modern reruns is a somewhat frequent thing the UK Nick channel does . I then guessed these were done cause of the tighter time constraints.

      It's possible modern US reruns do this too, but I can't confirm.

      I’m not talking about a cut, I’m talking about an audio glitch.

      In some versions, when SB goes up to the building, the audio from the very next scene starts playing when he opens his mouth. So it look like he’s saying “I just don’t get it” to the building, and Patrick’s saying “I don’t either” offscreen.

    5. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Okay, that is plain odd.

      I recall that being on the season 2 DVD box set, but I wasn't aware it had been on airings too.

      Considering the episode is almost 20 years old now, I'm amazed that someone hasn't seen the non-glitched version of that scene until now.

    7. Panda Claus

      Panda Claus

      Well I’d only ever seen the episodes on regular TV up to this point, which always used the glitched version.

      I never even assumed a “correct” version existed until I saw it on Amazon Prime.

  5. What’s your opinion of the Klasky Csupo art style?

    I think it’s iconic and endearing, though I can understand why some might be put off by it.

    1. Tara

      Tara

      It depends on which show.  Like, Rugrats isn't a beautiful show by any stretch of the word, but it does look deliberate in all its stylistic decisions.  Arguably the same with Aaaah! Real Monsters.  But I always thought Rocket Power, All Grown Up, and especially As Told By Ginger (which I'm sad to say, because I have a lot of respect for the writing and characterization in Ginger) looked extremely off-putting.  Like, as they went on, rather than refining their style, they seemed to just... exaggerate it more.

    2. Ferno

      Ferno

      My parents used to call alot of the cartoons I and my siblings grew up watching ugly, but they just always happened to be around when it was like, Rugrats or Ahh Real Monsters coming on, funny enough.

      Overall I don't hate the style. If anything I like their style of backgrounds more than the characters themselves tho

      rugrats-season-1-rugrats-season-2-availa

      The random lines on everything gave them sort of a warm/ organic feel, almost comic strip esque.

  6. If I’m salty about anything concerning the new Re:Mind trailer, it’s the fact Square have gone back on their promise to release it this side of New Year’s AGAIN.

    1. Bobnik

      Bobnik

      They never said Winter 2019 tho, they said "This Winter" 

      "This Winter" usually includes January and February of next year. 

    2. Panda Claus

      Panda Claus

      Could of sworn I saw at least one trailer that said Winter 2019.

  8. I just watched the Spongebob episode “Scaredy Pants” on Amazon Prime and this version has a scene I’ve never seen in my previous viewings.

    We actually see Patrick taking chunks off of Spongebob’s head with the razor.

       Yeah I remember that 

      but see he's a sponge so it's ok

      did they cut that out of the UK version or something? because I always remember that scene from when I saw that ep as a kid

    3. Panda Claus

      @Ferno guess they must have. When I used to watch it on TV it got to this

  10. They should really make a new iOS game that incorporates the avatar creator. I’d be all over that.

  11. The only time I’d want classic Sonic in another modern game is if it’s a literal Generations 2.

      Hahaha! Bloody hell. It's pretty extreme compared to what you expect to see in children's TV.

  14. Why do people feel the need to put their finger up their nose when they have an itch up there?

    Pressing your finger down on the side that itches and rubbing it works just as well.

      so i can pull out the massive snot that's causing the itch

  15. Ooh. The Sword and Shield chapters of Pokemon Adventures has just started in Japan and they finally decided to do something different with the protagonist’s names.

  17. Apparently Blanche in Pokemon GO is gender-fluid?

    People pointed out that Blanche was referred to as “they/them” in a recent publicity thing.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Not necessarily gender-fluid, rather just an intentional lack of gender association in the English-language version of Go. In other languages, Blache is referred to as female. 

    2. Panda Claus

      Panda Claus

      One still has to wonder why they’re avoiding gendered pronouns.

      Diversity more than likely.

      Seriously, even Peppa Pig at least commits to giving roll calls of her family like she’s in the army.

  20. Name a show that you respect but don’t necessarily like.

    I’m really not all that into Steven Universe, but I’m still grateful for what it’s done for LGBT representation in kids media (even if it could do better in a couple of areas).

    1. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack.

      I appreciate the show for being so different in a time where CN really was trying to off itself but the shit is just too weird for me.

    2. Sean

      Sean

      Adventure Time. I liked it early on but I wasn't into how lore-heavy it became later on so I grew out of it.

    3. Harkofthewaa

      Harkofthewaa

      Game of Thrones. Such a complex and intricate story ruined by people shagging each other every five minutes. I really want to get into that series but come on.

    4. Menace2Society

      Menace2Society

      Probably Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Cool how we have a show focused on an agency rather a group of superheroes (or just one superhero that is) but I always thought the show was boring.

    5. Ferno

      Ferno

      Loud House. Its great that a nicktoon besides Spongebob took off in the 2010s and I liked the few eps of it that I saw, but something about the aura the show gives off, or maybe just the fandom, keeps me mostly at bay for the most part

    6. Emperor Robrainiac

      Emperor Robrainiac

      Rick and Morty for me. It has it's moments both in terms of humor and emotion, but at the end of the day, I find that it relies heavily on the same kind of crude and edgy humor that you see in pretty much every adult show I've seen.

    7. Supah Berry

      Now, I both respect and "like" Spongebob. I agree it's among Nickelodeon's best, and say its worthy of the honor of being one of the greatest cartoons of all.

      But I don't "worship" it.

      Good lord, could I care less about those thousands of people proclaiming that Seasons 1-3 are the be-all-end-all masterpiece of human media and that all seasons afterwards belong in the 10th circle of hell and stuff. I see Spongebob, and most TV shows in general, as nothing more than something I could just watch and unwind. It was there to shut my brain and help cool it off after a long school day, but I wasn't eagerly look forward to it or anything. 

      I've heard a lot bout what bad stuff happened in seasons 5 - 9, do I hate them? Yeah, I feel such immorality should not belong to what's supposed to be shown to kids. But honestly, when I saw a "bad" episode, I simply thought it was boring and stupid. That's it. My only viewing of (what I think was) One Coarse Meal? "That was dumb." And forgot all about it the next day.

      Yet people still go on and on how offended they are by a piece of fictional comic media and it soured it's characters. I for one have a much simpler option: moving on. If the series is good again, that's great. Too bad I don't watch TV anymore anyhow. 

      And no, Squidward is not the best and most relatable character in the show.

      Not a TV show, but that basically sums up my feelings towards Mario (sans the RPGs). The games are obviously very well crafted but none of them have ever really made an impression on me. Like, I know Odyssey got rave reviews but all I think when playing it is"Yes. This is a video game. I am playing it. It very much exists."

    9. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      Used to be Steven Universe and Adventure Time, but ever since rewatching them this year and have them become some of my favorite things, among other things, I'm convinced if I respect something but don't enjoy it, I'm just not watching/reading/playing/doing it at the right time in my life. Like I'm coming into them with a predisposition or a bias that I need to lose over time to just see it from a different perspective.

      Makes me kinda happy, because there is a lot of stuff out there that I respect artistically right now, but don't enjoy altogether. Gives me something to look forward to in case I finally click with it later on down the road. Also makes me feel refreshed, like it reaffirms I'm always changing, and never stuck in one mindset despite getting older throughout the years.
