better than the current ones at least

@  Rycochet : (26 February 2017 - 09:08 AM)

90s Nicktoons were awful.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 08:16 AM)

Yeah, I'd get really pumped to watch it and the other Nicktoons.

@  lastmaximal : (26 February 2017 - 08:04 AM)

You digdug?

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:40 AM)

Hate watching stuff like that.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:40 AM)

Also, I digged Doug. Mostly for the ancillary characters, though. Doug himself is one of those characters who gets into situations that make YOU feel embarrassd. Like Fred Savage on The Wonder Years.

I remember Today's Special. The Toronto part was something of a revelation from my wife and her family when I came here.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 02:34 AM)

In hindsight, I'm pretty sure Miss Frizzle was a Time Lord.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 02:34 AM)

I got into science because of Magic School Bus.

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 February 2017 - 11:25 PM)

Anyone else remember Puttnam's Prairie Emporium? Not sure if it aired outside Canada

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 February 2017 - 11:21 PM)

Today's Special was a favourite of mine. Some of it was actually filmed at a department store here in Toronto

@  PlutoniumBoss : (25 February 2017 - 10:34 PM)

Eureka! and Start Here were awesome too.

@  The Doctor Who : (25 February 2017 - 09:59 PM)

I remember watching Newton's Apple on PBS. That's where I learned about thermal insulation layers and why things change temperature faster when you blow on them.

@  MrBlud : (25 February 2017 - 09:51 PM)

Today's Special was my jam!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (25 February 2017 - 09:48 PM)

Pff. I remember Pinwheel and Today's Special.

@  Paladin : (25 February 2017 - 09:47 PM)

my first Nick show was "Eureka's Castle."

@  ShadowMan024 : (25 February 2017 - 07:58 PM)

And Rocko's Modern Life was WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY better.

@  ShadowMan024 : (25 February 2017 - 07:57 PM)

Hey Arnold! was better.

@  Echowarrior : (25 February 2017 - 06:42 PM)

And then bought out by Disney.

@  Echowarrior : (25 February 2017 - 06:42 PM)

It certainly wasn't a terrible show. I think it was just overshadowed by its contemporaries.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 February 2017 - 06:19 PM)

I mean, it's not like it was bad, it was just kinda....there. Not especially memorable.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 February 2017 - 06:18 PM)

That requires us to remember that Doug happened, though.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2017 - 01:04 PM)

Just send him to whatever world the Cartoon Doug took place in. Lots of purple people there

@  unluckiness : (25 February 2017 - 03:55 AM)

It's gonna go hungry after eating that mind-control guy

@  Waspinator : (25 February 2017 - 03:49 AM)

It's eating purple people and it sure is fine.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 February 2017 - 02:27 AM)

It's a one-eyed, one-horned, flying, purple people eater!

@  Pennpenn : (25 February 2017 - 12:43 AM)

But it's purple?

@  Noideaforaname : (25 February 2017 - 12:28 AM)

Allspark's just a mean green mother from outer space, and it's BAD!

@  ShadowMan024 : (25 February 2017 - 12:10 AM)

Shut yo' mouth!

@  Patchouli Kn... : (24 February 2017 - 11:19 PM)

The Allspark is one bad mother...

@  Foffy the Sheep : (24 February 2017 - 10:09 PM)

My Allspark has never heard of a mother.

@  BlackMax : (24 February 2017 - 09:28 PM)

My mother has never heard of an Allspark.

@  The Doctor Who : (24 February 2017 - 08:54 PM)

This is your mother on Allspark drugs.

@  Bass X0 : (24 February 2017 - 08:42 PM)

This is your Allspark. This is drugs. This is your Allspark on drugs.

"if i was a mom, this would be shocking."

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2017 - 06:37 PM)

No, this is Patrick.

This is 29 Acacia Road, and this is Eric, the schoolboy who leads an exciting double life. For when Eric eats a banana, an amazing transformation occurs.... Eric is Bananaman, ever alert for the call to action!

Not Walky, specifically, but Shortpacked does have it's own page along with the Walkyverse.

Maybe it's my March tradition to revive this.

I've been bored somewhat lately and have been reading the 'Dethroning Moment of Suck' pages. Lord knows I love a good moan so surely I'd be in good company, right?

Reading the entries though, people seem to rage about the most pointless things. One that keeps cropping up is 'I HATE THIS EPISODE BECAUSE OF WHAT THEY'RE TEACHING CHILDREN!'.....What? When did TV shows have to educate children? I watched plenty of shows as a kid where characters did questionable things in a given episode and knew this was being presented by some adults as comedy, not education. Are you really expecting kids should get their moral values from the likes of Mr Krabs?

This is still the argument anyone adding to this page generally seems to run with. That apparently every work of fiction must have a moral and that when a story takes a non-politically correct tone it's trying to teach children this is the response they should take in life.

 

Are people really this dumb? Not every story has to have a moral, quite a few are just exploring something that would be impossible in reality for the sake of entertainment. In fact it's usually done to be cathartic; "You couldn't get away with this in real life, but wouldn't it be funny to do this?"

I like TVTropes becauae it has a way pointing out stuff I missed and showing me a new way to looking at a show

I trope up a series/movie after I seen it it gives me a good reason to go back and watch again

 

Plus I get a good laugh now an then as theres some funny stuff threre


Wait. Wait, wait, wait. Are you telling me that tec has a job? I thought his sole reasons for existence are cheesecake and horrible grammar.-Shadowman024

The worst part about TVTropes is really just the userbase, which is apparently the Planet of Easily Frightened People from Earthworm Jim.  I swear, ANYTHING that isn't a fluffy bunny is considered "nightmare fuel" to them. 

 

 

Ah well, at least they shunted "Fetish Fuel" and its Attendant away because of Google Ads.  That was a constant sine wave of terrible to even worse.

It's TV Tropes. For every informative piece of tropery, there's a half-dozen instance of user stupidity.

The worst part about TVTropes is the cargo culting of fiction. You have "writers" attempting to build a work out of TVtropes tropes as if they were Lego. That's not how you write! Not even close!

TVTropes is appeals to the same people who wish their Current News And Events websites had more Top Ten lists.

You will never find a greater index of new and exciting ways to pander to audiences than TVTropes.
