One more thing that bothers me about people complaining about cartoons not happening big expressions anymore is that one of the big nitpix about season 9 are the facial expressions.
People keep calling them meme faces and comparing them to faces filled by different emotions

Odd choice to segway into that show but ok.
I never cared much for Rocky & Bullwinkle even though I saw it a lot on Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network but my dad on the other hand is a BIG fan of Rocky & Bullwinkle. We still have a picture of Rocky signed by June Foray herself in my parents’ house.

The Rocky & Bullwinkle show itself was pretty good though. It was like the "SpongeBob" or MLP:FiM of the 1960s, as similarly, it was one of the first TV cartoons to gain a periphery demographic, due to it’s meta, clever, dry, & even cynical humor, and such giving it appeal to college students, and such at the time.

I loved that show as a kid.

The only THQ game I remember having back when I had an NES was Rocky and Bullwinkle. And I even knew that game was impossible to play. Most of my experience with older THQ games were AVGN videos.

I kinda like how Gumball mixes 2D, 3D, CGI, stop-motion, clay-mation, and even live-action together. The whole show is like one big juxposition parody of itself.

If any other show tried that, it’d probably be labeled a Gumball rip-off. The show actually had a whole episode making fun of it’s blatant Chinese rip-off show.

I did see some pictures putting those kind of pictures in reverse you know like sharing some old cartoons with the same face and adventure pictures on current cartoons with massive expressions. And showing massive expressions from both.

Well, while I do kinda feel cartoon modern styles have gotten a bit samey, and such, (with a few exceptions) but yeah, it’s a bit unfair to compare actual images with fake ones.

In fairness, saying Gravity Falls, and Gumball look the same is kinda ridiculous. Whoever made that, obviously never saw those shows.

And some ’90s shows were guilty of emulating the same art style too. (Look at the Hanna Barbara cartoons, DiC cartoons, TMS ones, Disney ones, and such.)

@Red-Supernova
Only THQ ’90s game I ever had was "The Great Waldo Search" for NES. It’s actually surprisingly better then "Where’s Waldo," seeing as Waldo actually looks like Waldo in it, (the graphics are much better) and there’s more to do in it. (And that electric guitar & voice sampling on the title screen is kinda impressive for the NES.)
Still, it’s a very short game, and not as fun to look at as an actual Waldo book.

Well I did say every decade has good and bad stuff. Anyway as I was trying to say earlier pretty much every media has these people. Sometimes they get really unfair
I mean look at this stupid picture complaining about modern cartoons

For Old cartoons they used 17 pictures taken from the actual show that’s from modern cartoons only used 4 that I’m not taking from the shows and don’t actually match the show.
also I wonder if modern cartoons did those faces in the old ones would people call them meme face?

It’s not too late, there’s plenty of ways to get into them.

THQ did publish some decent games, like the Sonic Advance trilogy.

@northern haste
Well, in fairness, the ’90s TMNT games, (like "Turtles in Time") were better then most modern TMNT games, and the old Capcom Disney games were better then modern Disney games. But yeah, some are biased, and there do exist good licensed games.

The Batman Arkham series is probably better then any other older Batman game.

I know. We talked about it in the Mega Man thread. I just wish I was more into retro games as well.

Screw Attack must have blanked out all of the licensed games from LJN and THQ at the time.
