Cartoon Network=Cartoon Stupid

I nominate this exchange between director/illustrator Ward Jenkins and his daughter, Ava, as the best animation-related tweet of the day:

    Watch them spin this in another expensive focus group.

    Ha! Yeah, she’s not a big fan of the live action stuff on CN right now. She just turned 9, by the way.

    Ava should be running Cartoon Network.

    In sharing his feelings about Cartoon Network yesterday, my six year old asked, “Why do grown ups have to keep wrecking everything?”

    That just about says it all.

  • Nightmare is Near

    That is just awesome. I like the way she thinks.

  • Cathy

    Ava’s opinion is shared by our house’s seven year old.

    Hey, you all could encourage kids to start a campaign…

    What part of Cartoon do you find live action? I miss Bugs Bunny, The Flintstones, Popeye, Woody Woodpecker and GOOD animation. Let Anami have the late night and Adult Swim an earlier timei n the evening ( Fox runs KOTH as early as 7:30 pm on Sunday nights ), and all the other cr*p earlier in the day when the young children can watch them. PLEASE get rid of the live action stuff I’m sure its just not me who changes channels when We see this stuff. And by the way, whatever happened to the “classic” animation that used to be on Cartoon (?) Network. Thanks for reading my post~~~C

    I demand that Cartoon Network stop making live act. shows.
