Are they in cahoots with the combiners guys? I was super psyched when I heard about a transformers web series, but that show was absolutely incomprehensible


#50

After looking it up, it seems two of the writers of Combiner Wars (F.J. DeSanto and George Krstic) are joining this show. I can’t find anyone else beyond those two, though.

Also, Combiner Wars was produced by Machinima, which is now dead, so it won’t be involved.

Synopsis:
"The story of Green Eggs and Ham is like a postmodern Plains, Trains and Automobiles through the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss. Sam rescues the rare Chickeraffe from the Glurfsburg Zoo, hides it in a briefcase, and attempts to make his way to Meepville where he can charter a cold air balloon to take the Chickeraffe to his island home. Guy just flopped his last big chance at being a world famous inventor for the industrial Snerz Co. He packs up his invention in a briefcase and resigns to give up on his dreams and become a paint watcher.

A chance meeting at a diner with Sam, and a switch up with the briefcases results in these two unlikely souls getting mixed up on an adventure that takes them on a journey of self discovery. Our two mismatched heroes cross paths with overprotective Michellee, whose daughter, EB, desperately wants a pet, and falls madly in love with the Chickeraffe… despite her mother’s fears that it will eat off her face (it won’t). Michellee’s walled up heart also connects with the heart-hardened Guy. And a laborious love story begins. Our fakakta foursome are also unknowingly pursued by a bounty hunter goat, two bad guys, and a villain who’s out to get the Chickeraffee as his ultimate trophy."

These Dr. Seuss re-imaginings are getting weird as shit but I have to applaud the guts it takes to spin a children’s book into an entire series.

“I Want My Hat Back: The Series” please.


#54

Well this looks fun. Reminds me a bit of Robot Carnival.

Dragon Prince Season 2 has really remarkable representation going on. Alternative family structures are normal, non-hetero relationships are normal, and disabled people are valuable and powerful characters.

I dig it.

Also, it’s a cool-ass story.


#58

How’s the animation? Did they fix the first season’s awkwardness?


#59

Ehhhhh, it’s still a bit awkward here and there. I’d call it “alright.”


#60

I think it’s better in season two. Better than season one at least.


#61

The creators said they read all the complaints and criticisms about season one’s animation and tried to fix it in season two.


#62

The most important things in this show are:

  • Hot Dad King
  • THAT VOICE IN THE MIRROR

That is all.

A: Why should I trust you?
B: You shouldn’t.


#63

And they actually set up their Dragon Turtles moment in this show, unlike last time.


#64

I mean was going to say the most important thing in the show is the widespread normalization of people who stand outside of the heteronormative ableist patriarchy, but yeah sure dad butts are good too.

Also the parrot. The parrot is clutch.


#65

Can’t wait to watch an animated parrot lay their clutch of eggs.


#66

Love Death + Robots came out today on Netflix.


#67

Back in November, I posted a trailer for a stop-motion anime called Rilakkuma and Kaoru (see responded post). Netflix posted a longer one.
