    The Cartoons & Animation Thread

    I love animation.

    My selection of choice animated films (feature wise):
    Heavy Traffic
    American Pop (Ralph Bakshi is a favorite)
    Down and Dirty Duck
    Ninja Scroll
    Beavis and Butt-head Do America
    Heavy Metal
    South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut
    Fantastic Plant
    Yellow Submarine

    Short wise:
    Flesicher brothers
    Tex Avery
    Bob Clampett
    Bill Plympton (I like some of his features too)
    Yellow Cake
    The Pig Farmer
    Abductees

    There's a lot more, it's a big art form. I should give a shout out to Bruce Bickford too. The stop-motion stuff he did for Frank Zappa's Baby Snakes added to the fun weirdness of that film. There's a good doc about Bickford called Monster Road that's worth a look.

    Most of my favorite TV shows are animation. They happen to be:

    Ren & Stimpy
    Cowboy Bebop
    Spawn
    The Maxx
    Sealab 2021
    Frisky Dingo
    Daria
    Young Justice (the BEST DC animated show)
    And of course The Simpsons seasons 2-8

    I still need to get the whole Cowboy Bebop set plus the movie. Samurai Champloo is another great show from Cowboy Bebop's director, Shinichrio Watanabe.

    I liked Champloo. I haven't seen it in over 10 years now but it was a good little show. Not quite as good as Bebop but that's just because Bebop is such an impossibly high standard.

    Really got into F Is For Family on Netflix. Also a big fan of Rick and Morty. That's about it as far as recent animated shows go.

    I don't watch much outside of [adult swim] but Gravity Falls was another show that was really fun. I watched Bordetown on Fox recently and was surprised that it was pretty amusing. The guy who created it also had a short lived MTV show called 3 South. Watched a lame sex cartoon originally from Italy called King Dick. That's it for cartoon viewing.

    I am one of the dozen 3 South fans. I remember catching that on a weekend animation marathon MTV 2 had once. I was like "How the hell did this fly under the radar?"

    3 South really was an easy-to-miss show. I don't think MTV even promoted it. I haven't seen it for some time, but loved it when it was on. I need to check it out again. I was wondering why the design style of Bordertown looked so familiar.

    I didn't even realize that Bordertown is essentially 3 South again, same exact character designs too. I wrote it off as another Seth Mcfarlane show with the same exact premise as every other Mcfarlane show but I'll have to give it a look now.

    You can tell that 3 South is obscure because the entire series is on Youtube, the rips were taken from that MTV 2 marathon I referenced, and each episode has maybe 5-10 thousand views a piece...
