someone on the writing team is probably still laughing about this
try to imagine everyone’s horror when they heard there was an entire planet of Snarfs, and the familiar Snarf wasn’t the ONLY irritating animal friend in existence, and that there was a Snarf equivalent of Scrappy Doo
try to picture everyone’s collective disgust in 1985
Total Threat: 6
that’s a pretty low score for “state of the art Mutant technology”
THERE IT IS
IT EVEN APPEARED IN AN EPISODE
THIS PIECE OF ANIMATION RIGHT HERE
I REALLY HOPE SOME MODERN CARTOON (*cough*steven*cough) REFERENCES THIS MOVE SOMEHOW SOMEWHERE

oh look, another example of a male children’s character with clothes that barely cover his body or protect him.
but he isn’t female, so this isn’t a problem
Well, the problem isn’t just “having female characters in impractical, revealing armor”, it’s having an extremely disproportionate number of female characters in impractical, revealing armor while a similarly disproportionate number of male characters get practical, full-body-covering armor.
So, the solution is to either give female characters more armor, or significantly increase the number of revealing Lion-o outfits on the male characters. (OR A LITTLE OF BOTH!)
skjfhsjskjfksjg THAT’S SO NICE, THANK YOU! <3
I definitely wanted to tighten it even more, but I felt like it was solid enough that I could just call it finished~
I AM QUITE GLAD PEOPLE LIKE THE VIDEO THOUGH THIS MEANS A LOT TO MEEEEE
“People usually assume that I’m daddy’s helpless little girl, but I can handle myself.”
some of the criticism about urbance is valid, especially when it’s coming from people of color. real issues like transphobia, bi erasure, cissexism— those are all real problems that could easily arise from a premise based around ‘sex is going to kill you, so men and women are separated’.
if you’re saying ‘UGH DAMN SJWS WORRYING ABOUT NOTHING’— uhhhh stop. that does nothing productive.
there’s also a point where it all crosses the line from ‘thinking critically about media’ to ‘actively sabotaging a project whose creators have acknowledged the above issues and have always planned to portray an arbitrary and government-enforced gender binary as an oppressive system’
it’s OK to say yo, i’m excited about this but i have concerns— and it’s racist as all fuck when all these MOGAI whites write urbance off entirely because they can’t see themselves represented in the characters, regardless of their orientation or gender identity.
or when they say that the poc in leading roles ‘clearly fall into the gender binary’ when uh, at what point does someone ‘clearly fall into the gender binary’?
or when they’re more concerned with the representation of BLUE PEOPLE over the black and brown people, which is all i’m hearing when people harp on the mediators when the team has said that nonbinary and trans people exist in urbance and experience the same oppression and frustration as the cis characters, with the added marginalization that comes from living in a cissexist dystopia.
or when people can understand that the dystopian society of the hunger games is meant to portray capitalistic brutality as a terrible thing, but who can’t seem to process the idea that urbance is going for the same thing with the gender binary.
i could go on, but basically i need people to realize that urbance is a production that stars people of color, which means it’s already on thin ice. it’ll have an incredibly hard time finding networks or sponsors willing to take a chance on it, and it is nothing like any of the big network- and studio-produced shows (COUGHFROZENCOUGH) that people will defend to the death from any kind of criticism, warranted or not.
tl;dr when people crit urbance as a project they’re invested in, that they want to see improve and represent all kinds of genders and identities the best it can, that’s not harmful.
when people— e.g. MOGAI whites and even a shitton of poc (which, fuckin seriously guys?) shit all over urbance without any intention of supporting it and actively encourage people to boycott, all you’re doing is saying that you don’t give a shit about media representation for poc because you can get plenty of MOGAI representation elsewhere, starring actual white people so who needs urbance right??
go watch orphan black or someshit. just stop spreading misinformation about urbance and let the people who have a vested interest in seeing it come to fruition hold the crew accountable
How long has it been since the last episode? A little over a month? Given that production time is usually about 9 months, I’m gonna say there are still a few episodes left with Skyler’s recorded dialogue. If Clarence gets renewed for season 2, he will definitely need a new VA. Fortunately, his voice is very easy to recreate, as long as you can master his trademark lisp.
Personally, I think if JG Quintel just used his Mordecai voice, pitched it up a bit, and added the lisp, he’d sound just like Clarence.
Steven Universe fandom needs to realize that Clarence is no longer associated with Skyler Page and that it’s created with the collective effort of talented crew that had no part in what happened because of Page.
Friend, you may or may not be asking the right person for this question, because I AM BIASED AS ALL HELL when it comes to Thundercats.
But, for what my opinion is worth, Thundercats 2011 is GOLDEN. It was everything the 80s Thundercats was, except with better production, much better voice acting, and an even more colorful, visual world of bizarre creatures and sci-fi/fantasy hybridization!
As with any reboot series, the canon has been altered in new and exciting ways, and I absolutely love all of the changes (Cats being the “aristocracy” race of Third Earth, animal racism, actually-competent Mutants, Mumm-ra’s involvement with the Thundercats, THE THING THAT HAPPENS TO PANTHRO, Pumyra’s character overhaul, etc, etc).
BASICALLY IT’S VERY GOOD GO WATCH IT I RECOMMEND IT
It does not close out its story arc in 26 episodes and leaves you hanging. CN did not renew after episode 26 and I am eternally saddened by this fact…but it was one hell of a good ride up until that point.
Much later down the road, I’ll be rewatching Thundercats 2011 as well!
