I lurk but am mainly on the discord server

I think that describes most of us, eh? ;)

@  GamemasterAn... : (20 April 2021 - 05:46 AM)

Physically, yes. Mentally...that's debatable...

Me.

*dragonhorse noises* Anyone still here?

@  furrykef : (28 March 2021 - 10:26 AM)

Somebody here tried contacting me on the IRC chat this morning while I was asleep. Please try again, or contact me on Discord (furrykef#4595).

Heya me monkeys! So we're working on a rebuild of FUS and i'm looking to get some feedback on what stuff you guys would like to see preserved/added/removed etc. Started a thread in the General channel. Cheers!

@  Julayla Tova... : (26 February 2021 - 10:30 AM)

Oh hey, long time no see, Roland.

@  furrykef : (17 February 2021 - 04:04 PM)

Back up to 54 (12.2 C) now. Woo.

@  furrykef : (17 February 2021 - 06:00 AM)

42 F (5.6 C) in this house. We've seen better days...

@  John Roberts : (14 February 2021 - 08:56 PM)

Can't get him on him email. Was hoping he had something in his profile somewhere. I really miss the bastard.

@  Prime : (14 February 2021 - 08:50 PM)

Oh John you naughty bugger you.

@  John Roberts : (14 February 2021 - 08:48 PM)

No no, that was me. I fucked it. Trying to dig up Jimmy's contact details.

@  Prime : (14 February 2021 - 08:45 PM)

Oh man, is it really you?

@  Prime : (14 February 2021 - 08:45 PM)

JIM!

@  Jim Doe : (14 February 2021 - 08:40 PM)

I hope not. Me and Paul should've been banned a long time ago reading those old, OLD posts.

@  furrykef : (14 February 2021 - 08:23 PM)

Isn't someone somewhere supposed to still have the database? Assuming it hasn't gone foop in the past few years...

@  Julayla Tova... : (14 February 2021 - 06:14 PM)

I am not, those are pretty much records of what Joan/Iselyn was like before they created us and disappeared for 12 years.

@  John Roberts : (12 February 2021 - 04:28 AM)

I'm glad the older posts are long dead and buried.

A classic has returned. Not a reboot or reimagining, but a continuation of everything fans of the show liked about it. We even got Pinky and the Brain back!

Honestly, It wasn't that good. The music, animation and VA was great. The content was very hit or miss with humor that will be dated in like 3 months at worst and a year at best. Way to over reliant on political humor... maybe it was there when I was younger and missed it

There was some in the original, yeah. "While Bill Clinton plays the sax" was in the first season intro. This version does seem more political, though.

Yeah I watched a bunch of the old ones to compare. There was definitely some but it didn't rely on modern references and such as they did in the reboot. At times with the newer one I thought I was watching an episode of Family Guy.

 

There's something there with the newer one, but it really did leave a bit of a sour aftertaste.

From what I can gather from YouTube clips, the original was a kids' show that adults can watch, and this one is more of an adults' show that kids can watch. I suppose that shouldn't be surprising, since they know a lot of people who were around to watch it the first time around are going to be watching it.

The problem is that in the past, Animaniacs was unique compared to all the other cartoons around it.

Modernly more cartoons/shows/media make the same kind of humor, so a lot of the charm is gone.

Example is the politics. Right now everyone is making political jokes. So it's not special anymore. In fact it's kinda oversaturated.

This show seems to be doing an amazing job of targeting both children and adults, though, and few cartoons ever pull that off, whether they're old or new.

I sorta agree. Personally I haven't watched any of it myself, but all the reviews see either love the cartoon, or dislike for not things that aren't the cartoon's fault but things like the platform, updates in animation style/techniques, or like I said before: it's not as unique as it used to be.

 

I say if you're interested you should probably watch it.  I'll get to it eventually.

I mean the old show did an amazing job with it, so is it really a surprise?

 

Though, a lot of the younger kids I know seem to dislike it.

I've only seen 1 episode, not in a rush to see any others.  I think the new talent isn't the best for this kind of show, not to mention the kind of humor Animaniacs had, while funny back in its heyday and still funny in retrospect, I think doesn't work for the current era because everyone takes the piss out of society and politics now and it feels like low hanging fruit in comparison to the old show.
