Re: Ugly Things That Ruin a Show

Nickelodeon cartoons are an acquired taste mostly, but this takes the cake:

There was this short lived cartoon on Cartoon Network that featured tons of neon colors and a character that was literally a turd (IIRC) that I watched for like 15 seconds before stopping out of fear it would induce schizophrenia (the art style literally looked like art made by a schizophrenic that I'd seen in a psychology book).
That reminds me. There was this show on Comedy Central TV Funhouse. It must have been by the guy who did TV Funhouse on SNL, and putting those cartoons in a TV show was probably a good idea. But between cartoons they had this thing where puppet animals behaved extremely grossly. They traveled through the toilet and came out with shit on them.

Also that reality show cartoon on Comedy Central and every other show Comedy Central ever did since South Park was a success is pretty much unwatchably gross.

I never said he called her ugly. The original poster said all his examples were from animated shows. Clearly that isn't the case because he also cited the ugly uniforms on the live action show two broke girls

The actress playing her is attractive.

Her facial expression on the show is ugly as hell.

I was talking about my example of people, since that seemed to be the point of contention.

Re: Ugly Things That Ruin a Show

The CGI on Sanctuary nearly ruined it for me, not necessarily ugly, but the CGI-ness of some of the stuff I found hard to overlook when I first started to watch it. I think I tuned it out over time.

Just thought of an animated one, Ren and Stimpy. Found the art style when they did a close up of characters was gross and put me off the show.

Fair enough. Either way, my post was intended as a joke about what appeared to be you mischaracterizing that particular show, not a serious rebuke of you or your post. Apologies if that didn't come through

Yes, I forgot about this one! In general I didn't like the animation on the show, it made it hard to watch.

That was kind of the point of the cartoon, they were supposed to be ugly characters. I thought the writing on it was pretty strong though and it was quite funny. I can't look at it with childs eyes though as I was a teen when it was on. However I can look with childs eyes at...

Like with 'Ahhhh, Real Monsters,' 'Ren and Stimpy' was meant to be a gross out show. I also happened to find it particularly funny. Now humor is subjective so if you didn't, that's up to you, but as a pre-teen I loved the hell out of the show. Now if you want to look at downright ugly, look no further then the 'Ren and Stimpy' revival show from a few years ago, which was just downright horrible, and didn't even try to be funny in favor of just being gross.

I did find it funny. I know that the point is that they ARE ugly, but that doesn't make it any easier for me to watch. If something is really visually unappealing then it lessens the likelihood that I am going to want to watch it, whether they meant it to be that way or not.

Re: Ugly Things That Ruin a Show

Fair enough.

There's a show on (or was on) Cartoon Network's Adult Swim that was just so repulsive I couldn't watch it, Squidbillies I think it was called, nothing redeeming about that thing.

That first season was very awkward. But glad I persisted as did get better.

To put a British spin: we have a recently-finished school sitcom, appropriately titled Big School (for any Who/SF fans, stars Catherine Tate). It has some nice moments and characters, but it's a bit of a disaster and just looks really ugly, especially in HD.

I get the impression that cartoon styles get uglier and uglier. You don't get anything near the quality of old Disney or Looney Tunes cartoons. Modern cartoons look just nasty.

I think there was a Family Guy episode where they actually get into a Disney style universe. And all I could think of was how much better the drawings looked.

You know, for the longest time, I refused to watch Squidbillies because of the art style, but one night I was bored and had Adult Swim playing in the background while I was on the computer and I heard some hilariousness going on in the background. It was Squidbillies. The art style for me is just as funny as the show itself. Especially how crappy the Sheriff is drawn.

Seems like the creators of that show must have grown up around here because I swear it could take place where I live (well, if squids could be rednecks and walk on land and have meth labs).
