Spongebob inventor Stephen Hillenburg is remembered
The most recent Cartoon Crush episode discusses a show I grew up watching while also reflecting on Hillenburg’s legacy. Spongebob is a cartoon that, because of its exceptional ability to entertain both children and adults at the same time, would eventually help me establish a foundation and develop my comedic style as a future screenwriter.
Want to learn more about Spongebob’s creators and what makes him so popular? This is the first Cartoon Crush article.
“Homer at the Bat,” The Series Home Run
Although I could write an article about how The Simpsons Portrait has forever lost its way, this is a love letter to my favorite Simpsons episode of all time. Homer at the Bat stands up as a game-changing moment in baseball history. I’m still thinking about the song. It is no longer present!
Simpsons Portrait of Brilliant Irrelevance
Family Guy is a staple on our television screens, never obligatory viewing but always present. It’s the perfect “background” software that never attempts to be anything else.
Even after all these years, Family Guy remains the mischievous younger brother who is completely satisfied in his place and is constantly willing to transgress.
Understanding Sanchez, Rick
Rick Sanchez is my favorite asshole in the area of animation. In this post, I investigate Rick’s reasons, why he commits such heinous crimes on a regular basis, and why we find it so appealing. I wonder how we, the audience, can continue to let him get away with this. Maybe we’re all just a bunch of naïve sadists. Who am I to say?
Are you a fan of Rick and Morty, namely Rick? Join me as I investigate what distinguishes Rick from other cartoon characters and what makes him the Richest Rick.
Bob’s Burgers’ Ordinary Genius
Bob and his family make a living working in greasy eateries while his children attend school in a desolate civilization not far from our own. This essay focuses on that little community, its strangely grounded reality, and its distinct brand of realism inside it, as well as this baseball cap.
I talk about Bob Belcher’s general sense of grandeur and lack of obnoxiousness. And, oddly, that is precisely what distinguishes this program from the competition.
