WOW.... REALLY??? SCREEN GRABBIN FACEBOOK QUOTES??? The world is going to end in 2012... and this is how far we've come??? How delightfully creepy!!! Are we that bored? Its JUST cartoons people!
Hey folks, sorry if I offended anyone on Cartoon Brew... I didn't mean to single any particular group out - what I should've written was, the ENTIRE INTERNETS is full of weirdos, not just the Brew... its true, I'm one of them - the fact that writing a response makes me guilty as charged!!!
What I wrote on facebook was something that was written in the heat of the moment - something written to defend a friend that works on the show, and was completely devastated by the thrashing it took. It was only meant for one person, and one person only - not for internet fodder... but if it helps make your day go by faster, then you're welcome. But why should one person's feelings (or an entire crew of people) matter right? A job is a job and people are entitled to their opinions - not everyone's gonna love it.
I totally forgot that aside from being human, I also happen to be a professional working in the animation industry - but ask anyone working in cartoons, its hard to try and separate yourself from your work, and friends - especially in the animation community [like any career choice you're passionate about, it becomes your life]... it's also such a small, small world... and it gets even smaller especially on facebook (apparently)... you can't even fart without people knowing. So being a person that leads 2 lives, Professional and Personal - I should be aware of what mode to be in, and mind my words... lesson learned!!!
The thing about Looney Tunes is.... NO BODY will ever be able to live up to original... Not even the guys that did it back in the 30's and 40's could... even in it's original run, Looney Tunes changed so much from the day it started to the end of production... and then we had Baby Looney Tunes, and then Looney Tunes from Outer Space... big deal, depending on the times, the show will change wether we like it or not... All we can really do is to try our best, to make something that will appeal to a new generation and keep them interested, period. It's hard enough to find any Looney Tunes on TV as it is. And hey, if ya don't like the new crap... pop in a classic DVD and watch that instead.
At the end of the day, I just don't get why a website that's supposed to support animation is out to get everything that's trying so hard to be creative before it even sees the light of day??? Its rare that anyone gets to work on anything as cool as this, so rather than suffocate the poor puppy, let it live... Who knows, ya might like it, OR maybe it will inspire the next wave of people to make something even better!!!
Oh well, what do I know anyway? I'm just a handsome face, with the voice of an angel....
