The Cartoon Historian Lesson 31: Spongebob Squarepants

Welcome to The Cartoon Historian. It's been a while since I did one of these,huh?.

Mina: Yup. Hope you're not rusty.

I hope not either. Anyway,today we will be taking a look at Spongebob Squarepants.

*The Cartoon Historian Theme Plays*

SpongeBob SquarePants (often referred to simply as SpongeBob) was created by marine biologist and animator Stephen Hillenburg. Much of the series centers on the exploits and adventures of the Lovable Guy and his various friends in the underwater city of Bikini Bottom.

Mina: The series' popularity has prompted the release of a media franchise, contributing to its position as Nickelodeon's highest rated show. As of 2011, SpongeBob SquarePants is the only Nicktoon from the 1990s that hasn't ended yet. It's also known for being one of Nickelodeon's longest running TV shows.

Much of the series' events take place in Bikini Bottom, an underwater city located in the Pacific Ocean beneath the real life tropical isle of Bikini Atoll. Stephen Hillenburg has stated that much of Bikini Bottom was based on the city of Seattle.

Much of this seems to be true,however,despite implications of the city's location as well as analogies to real life, Hillenburg has stated that he wishes to leave the city isolated from the real world, explaining the Baywatch parody scene from The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie as simply a reference to his favorite show of all time.

Mina: So..he's a Baywatch fan.

The citizens of Bikini Bottom live in mostly aquatic-themed buildings, and use "boatmobiles" as a mode of transportation.

Each episode of SpongeBob SquarePants is self-contained, with references to previous episodes being rare. Episodes have ended with the entire town being destroyed, the entire cast being harmed, or other catastrophic events, only for everything to return to normal the next episode without any mention of what happened before.

Mina: The Magic Reset Button,ladies and gentlemen.

SpongeBob SquarePants is an energetic and optimistic young sea sponge (although his appearance more closely resembles a household sponge) who lives in a pineapple under the sea with his pet snail, Gary, who meows like a cat. Although,the characters have shown an ability to understand him.

Mina: Fun fact: Apparently,In the Show,Snails are the equivelent to Cats. This seems to be the case in the episodes where other snails are present.

Anyway,Living two houses down from SpongeBob is his best friend, Patrick Star, a dim-witted yet friendly pink seastar who lives under a rock. Even despite his "Mental Setbacks",Patrick still sees himself as intelligent.

SpongeBob's next-door neighbor and co-worker is Squidward Tentacles, an arrogant and ill-tempered squid who lives in an Easter Island moai. He dislikes his neighbors (especially SpongeBob) for their child-like behavior. He enjoys playing the clarinet and painting self-portraits, but hates his job working at the Krusty Krab.

Another close friend of SpongeBob's is Sandy Cheeks, a squirrel from Texas. Sandy is an expert at karate and lives in an underwater tree dome. When not inside her tree dome, she wears an astronaut-like suit because she cannot breathe underwater.

Eugene Krabs is SpongeBob and Squidward's employer and is a former officer cadet for the Bikini Bottom Navy force. He's a miserly crab obsessed with money and the owner of the Krusty Krab restaurant. Mr. Krabs has a whale daughter, Pearl, who is a teenage cheerleader.

Mina: The reason why Mr. Krabs' daughter is a whale is unknown. And it's best left untold.

Mr. Krabs’ archenemy is Sheldon Plankton, a small green copepod who owns a low-rank fast-food restaurant called the Chum Bucket across the street from the Krusty Krab.

Plankton spends most of his time planning to steal the recipe for Mr. Krabs's popular Krabby Patty burgers to obtain success (occasionally with the assistance of his computer wife, Karen),though his schemes always end in failure.

Mina: I like Plankton,he's entertaining. And he kinda sounds like a cartoony verion of Perfect Cell from DBZ.

And Now,The show's backstory.

Creator Stephen Hillenburg initially conceived SpongeBob SquarePants in 1984, while he was teaching and studying marine biology at what is now the Orange County Ocean Institute.

During this period, Hillenburg became fascinated with animation,and created a comic book entitled "The Intertidal Zone" starring various anthropomorphic forms of sea life. Many of these characters would evolve into the various SpongeBob SquarePants characters. "Bob the Sponge",who was the co-host of the comic,would become Spongebob himself. However,Bob resembled an actual sea sponge,as opposed to SpongeBob who resembles a household one.

In 1987, Hillenburg left the institute to pursue his dream of becoming an animator, and began to envision the possible concept of a project involving anthropomorphic sea life,drawing several rough sketches.

In 1992, Hillenburg attended the California Institute of the Arts to study animation,having been accepted into the institute by Jules Engel,who was impressed with Hillenburg's previous work.

While attending the animation school,Hillenburg received a job on the children's TV series 'Mother Goose & Grimm',and worked on the series from 1991 to 1993. When attending the California Institute of the Arts, he made a thesis film entitled 'Wormholes',which was funded by the Princess Grace Foundation and was later displayed at various animation festivals.

In 1993, Hillenburg graduated from the institute,earning a Master degree in Fine Arts in experimental animation. In 1995,Joe Murray,creator of Rocko's Modern Life, met Hillenburg at an animation festival,and offered him a job as a director of the series.

Mina: Coolio,so he was involved in onother Nicktoon,not just Spongebob.

Apparently so,Anyway Hillenburg joined the Nickelodeon animated series as a writer, producer,and storyboard artist during the series' third season. He continued his positions for most of the fourth season.

The third season episode "Fish-N-Chumps" (November 12, 1995) was directed by Hillenburg,and involved Rocko,Heffer,and Filburt going on a fishing trip, oblivious to the fact that a pair anthropomorphic fish are attempting to catch them from underwater.

While working on Rocko's Modern Life,Hillenburg became friends with Tom Kenny. He also became friends with Mr. Lawrence and Paul Tibbitt,who would later be involved with the Show.

Rocko's Modern Life ended in 1996. Shortly following this,Hillenburg began working on SpongeBob SquarePants,teaming up with several Nickelodeon veterans and Rocko crew members. To voice the character of SpongeBob,Hillenburg approached Tom Kenny,who had worked with him on Rocko's Modern Life.

Mina: Originally, SpongeBob was to be named SpongeBoy,but this name was already in use. This was discovered after voice acting for the original seven minute pilot was recorded in 1997. The Nickelodeon legal department discovered that the name was already in use for a mop product. Never heard of it.

Mina: Upon finding this out,Hillenburg decided that the character's name still had to contain "Sponge" so viewers wouldn't mistake the character for a "Cheese Man." *laugh* "Cheese Man". He does kinda resemble a block of chese doesn't he?

Anyway,Hillenburg decided to use the name "SpongeBob." He chose "SquarePants" as a family name as it referred to the character's square shape and "had a nice ring to it". I think so too.

While pitching the cartoon to Nickelodeon executives,Hillenburg donned a Hawaiian shirt, brought along an “underwater terrarium with models of the characters”,and some Hawaiian music to set the theme. The setup was described by Nick executive Eric Coleman as "pretty amazing".

When given money and two weeks to write the pilot episode (“Help Wanted”),Derek Drymon,Stephen Hillenberg,and Nick Jennings returned with something described as “a performance he wished he had on tape” by Nickelodeon official,Albie Hecht.

Although described as stressful by executive producer Derek Drymon,the pitch went “very well”; Kevin Kay and Hecht had to step outside because they were “exhausted from laughing”,making the cartoonists worried.

Mina:well that was strange *shrugs*

Now we'll talk about the Series itself. Starting with the Hillenburg era (1999–2004).

SpongeBob's first season was only a modest success during its initial run after the series' debut in 1999,but the show still garnered enough popularity that Nickelodeon quietly renewed it for a second season. Beginning with this season, production of the series switched from traditional cel animation to digital ink and paint.

Mina: Interesting.

During the second season's run,the show slowly achieved big and world wide popularity,leading to an eventual third season pick-up. The show's continued success soon led to the creation of a feature film called 'The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie'

Mina: Here's an interesting tidbit for ya: The Movie itself was originally intended to serve as the Series Finale. However,shortly after the film's release,Nickelodeon renewed the series for a fourth season,due to the shows popularity.

Thast is interesting. Anyway,Following the film's release,Stephen Hillenburg resigned as the show runner,causing a shift in the series' production crew,as well as several of the series' writers. Following the end of the Hillenburg era,the animation style changed to 3D computer animation (although it would still use digital ink and paint).

Mina:Now for the Post-movie era (2005–present).

The series' fourth season began in May 2005.A fifth season was ordered months later on December 2005. This brought the show’s total episode count to 100.

In December 2006,SpongeBob was approved for a sixth season. During Season 5,Nickelodeon began airing a special event called the "SpongeBob New–New–New–New–New–Week". In this event,a new episode would airfrom Monday to Friday. This continued until the end of the second week.

Later on November 12,2007,a TV movie aired titled Atlantis SquarePantis, guest starring David Bowie as the voice of Lord Royal Highness. In March 2008,it was announced that SpongeBob would have an additional 39 episodes and a seventh season. These new episodes included the remaining episodes of the 6th season.

Mina:On July 14, 2009,a primetime SpongeBob tenth anniversary documentary titled Square Roots: The Story of SpongeBob SquarePants,aired on VH1,discussing the history of the show,and its impact on popular culture. Of course,that was back before the Cartoon Historian,so you had no choice if you wanted to get informed about the history of Spongebob.

Right,Mina. Starting on July 17, 2009 at 8:00 PM EST, Nickelodeon aired a 2-day marathon titled "The Ultimate SpongeBob Sponge Bash." The marathon included the premiere of 11 new episodes,countdowns of celebrities' and viewer-chosen top 10 episodes,and more.

On November 6, 2009,a second TV movie debuted on Nickelodeon, titled 'Truth or Square',in which SpongeBob,Patrick,Squidward,and Mr. Krabs are accidentally locked inside the Krusty Krab freezer on the night of the restaurant's eleventy-seventh anniversary celebration. While trapped inside,the friends look back on their shared memories with "shocking" reveals.

Mina: In otherwords,it was a Clip-Show.

Several celebrities made live-action cameo appearances on Truth or Square. I'll let you find out whjo was in this thing for yourselves. Also Victoria Beckham lent her voice as Queen Amphitrite,in the episode "The Clash of Triton,"..Which aired on July 5,2010.

Mina: SpongeBob SquarePants is currently slated to surpass Rugrats as the longest running Nicktoon in number of episodes. Rugrats aired 172 episodes in its run; SpongeBob, when the eighth season completes.will have 178.

The series was further extended to a ninth season this past January 2011,bringing its total to 204 episodes. It will become the first Nicktoon to reach 200 episodes. It will also be the second Nicktoon to have made it to its ninth season. The eighth season started this past March.

Mina: It's also worth noting that most episodes contain a French Narrator,done by Tom Kenny. He speaks at the start of some episodes and during intertitles with a French accent. He is shown in the series as a scuba diver with a TV camera.

Mina: On the November 16,2004 episode of the NPR program 'Fresh Air with Terry Gross', Kenny admitted that Jacques Cousteau was the inspiration for the French narrator,as series creator Stephen Hillenburg considered him an icon.

Mina: Now we discuss the Music.

The theme music was composed by Derek Drymon, Mark Harrison, Stephen Hillenburg and Blaise Smith as part of Hank Smith Music,and is primarily based on the sea shanty, "Blow the Man Down". The song is sung by Painty the Pirate,voiced by Patrick Pinney,and can be found on the soundtrack 'SpongeBob SquarePants: Original Theme Highlights'. A cover of the song by Avril Lavigne can be found on the 'SpongeBob SquarePants Movie' soundtrack.

Another cover by the Violent Femmes,which aired as a commercial on Nickelodeon to promote season two,can be viewed in a special feature of the 'Nautical Nonsense/Sponge Buddies' DVD. A choral version was recorded for the SpongeBob Christmas special where the last repetition of "SpongeBob SquarePants" was replaced by, "It's the SpongeBob Christmas special."

The theme song is occasionally used in marching ads. An instrumental version of the opening theme is used in Italy. The series' music editor and main composer is Nicolas Carr.

Most of the background music used in the series comes from the Associated Production Music (APM) Library, some of which have also been used in shows such as The Simpsons,The Ren & Stimpy Show,Rocko's Modern Life,The X Factor,Bill Nye the Science Guy,and The Adventures of Pete & Pete.

For competition-based episodes,some of Sam Spence's NFL Films music is used (such as "A Golden Boy Again" used in episodes such as The Fry Cook Games and "Ramblin' Man from Gramblin" is used in Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy V.

"The Lineman" is also used extensively in Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy episodes). Ironically,one of Spence's more famous NFL songs is an orchestral version of "Drunken Sailor" called "Up She Rises",first suggested by Steven Sabol to his father Ed because he liked the song at summer camp.

Hawaiian steel guitar music is used for comedic and dramatic effect in the show. Various compositions featuring the Hawaiian steel convey happy,sad,or goofy emotions and situations.

Many are traditional Hawaiian melodies such as "Aloha 'Oe" and are usually sampled from the above-mentioned APM music library.From time to time,these songs are performed by classic steel guitar artists...including The Woodies,The Langhorns,and The MelTones.

Creator Hillenburg states that much of the music in the series was inspired by 1950s Hawaiian steel guitar tunes. Another aspect of the series' musical score is traditional sea shanties, which are used for the musical themes in the show. The most commonly used song in the series is "Drunken Sailor," though a ukulele version of the "Twelfth Street Rag" is often heard in the background as well. Unlike other Nickelodeon shows,SpongeBob features well-known independent musicians who contribute to its soundtrack.

Mina: Alternative rock bands,as well as metal bands have made appearances on the show and movies soundtracks. Which bands? You'll have to find out for yourself,because ,I ain't tellin'.

Like We mentioned,SB had a movie.On November 19,2004, Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies produced The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie,a film adaption of the SpongeBob SquarePants animated series.

The film was directed by series creator Stephen Hillenburg,and was written by long-time series writers Hillenburg, Derek Drymon, Tim Hill, Kent Osborne, Aaron Springer, and Paul Tibbitt. Nickelodeon official Albie Hecht, Drymon, Hillenburg, Julia Pistor, and Gina Shay produced the film, while much of the film's music was composed by Gregor Narholz.

The film follows SpongeBob,who expects to gwt promoted to manager of Mr. Krabs' new restaurant,The Krusty Krab 2 (although this restaurant is never seen or mentioned for the rest of the series). However,the position is given to Squidward instead,causing our favorite child-like sponge to go into a state of depression.

Jealous of Mr. Krabs' success,Plankton initiates his ultimate plan,Plan Z,which involves framing Mr. Krabs for the theft of King Neptune's crown. SpongeBob and Patrick then go on a quest to retrieve Neptune's crown and save the lives of both Mr. Krabs and the rest of Bikini Bottom from Plankton's scheme.

The film received a largely positive critical reception and grossed over $140 million worldwide.

Mina: My favorite part was with the Pirates at the begining and ending. That was funny.

Sure was. SpongeBob SquarePants was the first "low budget" Nickelodeon cartoon to become extremely popular. Low-budget cartoons had not garnered as much esteem as higher-rated,higher-budgeted shows,although when SpongeBob SquarePants aired in 1999,it had gained a significant enough number of viewers in the ratings to be considered popular,eventually reaching worldwide popularity by 2001.

SpongeBob follows other Nickelodeon shows that have attracted "older" followers. In fact,The Fairly OddParents won a similar fan base when it premiered in 2001,and is now second only to SpongeBob in popularity.

Though the show debuted in 1999, SpongeBob did not become hugely popular until around 2000,and it has remained popular since then. Since 2004,IGN made SpongeBob SquarePants 15th in its 'top 100 animated series of all time' list.

Mina: Wow. Oh,before we go I'd like to talk more about another special Spongebob Character..Patchy the Pirate. Patchy the Pirate,played by Tom Kenny,is a live-action character who is a pirate and the president of the SpongeBob fan club who lives in the city of Encino, California.

Mina: He's the host of the various Spongebob specials. Although sometimes it is just a title sequence of him saying "this is a spongebob special". He has a puppet parrot called,Potty. Potty likes to pull pranks on Patchy and shuns him at almost every episode they appear on.

Spongebob is the only show on nick nowadays that is worth watching. It's a damn fine show and I recommend watching it.

Mina: Amen,Stefan.

Well I hope you enjoyed this Final (atleast for now) New Episode of the Cartoon Historian. Because Starting Next Year,I'll be Redoing most of my Earlier Lessons.

Mina: Well,they Are kinda slopily done.

This Is The Cartoon Historian,saying until next time,Stay Gold.

Mina: Laters.

The Ultimate Boss: 4Kids Entertainment.

Welcome to another instalment of 'The Ultimate Boss'. Today,I'll be focusing on 4Kids Entertainment. As you know,4Kids Entertainment is on it's last legs,but it still refuses to die.

4Kids Entertainment is the #1 Bastardizers of Saturday Morning TV and Here is a list of reason's why:

- They favor crappy shows almost 100% of the time.
- They don't do a very good job editing anime. In fact Anime has No business on Saturday Mornings Period.
- They make incredibly stupid decisions. Decisions that put them on life support(ratings wise).
- Only 2% of shows that air on Toonzai are good.
- Like most Media Companies,all 4Kids Entertainment cares about is themselves.

Bad Huh? But don't worry,I have a plan. Here's a list of things that I would do to save 4Kids Entertainment:

- For starters,I'd change the name. To what? I don't know yet.
- I'll get rid of shows all Anime Shows on Saturday Morning and replace them with American Ones (as it should be).
- I'll establish a TV Network.
- I'll make sure that the company doesn't go overboard with the anime edits.
- I'll reject any show that I feel is unworthy to be on Saturday Morning TV as well as My New Network.
- I'll re-air some of the old Fox Kids shows(once I buy them from disney).
- I'll make smart decisions and listen to the fans often.

Not bad,huh? I really hope you enjoyed this edition of 'The Ultimate Boss'. Next episode will be all about Disney.

Stay Gold,

Not bad for starting line-ups,huh. I know most people would favor My Nick line-up a lot more than Viacrap's.

The Ultimate Boss: Viacom

Welcome to another edition of 'The Ultimate Boss'. Today,I'll be focusing on Viacom.

As you know,Viacom is the most vile Media organization that ever existed.

Viacom is the #1 ruiners of American TV (not to mention young lives). Here is a list of reason's why I think Viacrap is a total disgrace:

- They love to decimate the purpose of their Networks.
- They seem to favor crappy reality shows.
- They favor shitty shows,over the good ones.
- They make incredibly stupid decisions. (including putting live action shows and music vids on nicktoons network)
- They mess with Youtubers in more ways than one.
- All they care about is Money and Power,and they'll do anything to get it...including brainwash the youth of the world.

And That's Just for starters. the list of Viacrap's atrocities goes on and on. But have no fear,because I've got a plan to "Reform" this Evil Organization. Here's just some of the things I'd do if I were running Viacom:

- For starters I would re-fuse The Teen Nick and Nick Jr. Once that's done,I'll air the teen shows from 7pm to 7-am. 7am-7pm is when the baby shows will air.
- I'll turn the network that used to be Teen Nick into Retro Nick,a network dedicated to Nickelodeon's classic shows and program blocks.
- I'll turn MTV2 into MTV classics,a Network dedicated to music from the 70's,80's,and 90's. I'm Sorry,but MTV2 was totally unneeded.
- I'll turn MTV into a music dominated network again,annihilating most of it's retarded reality shows...including that terrible 'Jersey Shore'
- I'll turn VH1 into an all Music-related network. No reality shows allowed.
- For TV Land,I'll get rid of both the reality shows and the shows of the modern era. In their place,I'll air lots of shows from the 70's,80's,and early 90's. with me in control,TV Land will get it's true purpose back.
- I'll save Nicktoons Network by: Scrapping the shitty shows completely and airing the Mediocre shows less.
- Also,for Nicktoons Network,I'll air Only Good American Cartoons and ditch the retarded Music Videos. Also No Live Action Crap Allowed!
For Nickelodeon,I'll stop airing those Pathetic Music Videos. Then,I'll put the teen shows in their own special block on saturday evening...and keep 'em there. And From there,I'll just copy my "Nicktoons Network" plans...except for the no live action part,of course.
- I'll replace that pathetic excuse for a Network,Spike TV,with Comedy Central Old School. CSOS will be a network that airs Comedy from the 70's to the Mid 90's.
- As for the other Viacom Networks(such as comedy central and b.e.t.),I'll either leave them alone or change them for the better.
- I won't be greedy for your money.
- And Finally,I'll Leave YouTube The Hell Alone.

Coming up Next,My Line-ups for Nickelodeon and Retro Nick.

The Ultimate Boss: Cartoon Network and Boomerang

Welcome to the Ressurection of 'Stefan In Charge',Now Known As 'The Ultimate Boss'. The Segment's Concept is Simple: Tells you what I would do if I was the boss of,well....anything.

Today we'll focus on Cartoon Network and Boomerang. And trust me when I say I can do A lot better than that Retard Stuart Snyder. Here are Cartoon Network's biggest problems....problems that totally destroyed The Network.

- Adult Swim.(the original shows on that block are only funny because they're so retarded. it needs to go. this block has outlived its purpose anyway. )
- Live Action Series and Reality Shows (on a Network Meant for Cartoons. Stupid!!)
- Live Action Movies (same as above)
- Canadian Craptoons (canadian cartoons suck. period)
- American Abominations (these cartoons are just pathetic)
- Ben 10 Hyper Fetish (milking a mediocre show is wrong..even if it is american)

Most of these are Stuart Snyders Handywork.Thanks to Him Cartoon Network is now in ruins. Anyway,here's a list of things that I would do If I ran The Network:

- First,I'll get rid of Adult Swim.
- I'll get rid of all Live Action and Reality Crap.
- I'll throw ouit all of the Bumpers and Network ID's.(and replace them with better ones)
- I'll Resurrected Toonami
- I might make a Block dedicated to Subbed Anime.
- Have an Omega strong 'No Live-Action' policy.
- Ditch and Ban All Canadian Cartoons.
- I'll reject any show that I feel is unworthy to be on My Networks.

And Now For Boomerang's Flaws and what I'd do about them.

- Constant receptiveness.
- The Line-ups haven't had a decent change in over 4 years.
- Despite being a classic animation Network,Boomerang airs the crappy '00's stuff too.
- The shitty preschool stuff is alive and well on that Network.
- In a way,Boomerang has become disorganised.
- Air commercials of Cartoon Network's crappy Shows.(i don't need a reminder on how shitty cartoon network is)

Stupid huh?,Luckily,unlike Cartoon Network,Boomerang isn't dead and can be fixed. Here's a list of things that I would do to improve that network:

- For starters I would Replace those stupid preschool shows.
- Remove the shitty and mediocre shows from the 00's.
- Replace some of the crappy classics with the good ones.
- Create "Toonami Retro",a block that plays all of Toonami's classic shows. No Shows Beyond 2003 Allowed!
- Place "Toonami Retro" on the weekday afternoons from 4pm-6pm.
- Revive "Cartoon Cartoon Fridays".
- Add more 80's and 90's shows. There just isn't enough of those on Boomerang.
- Bring back Looney Tunes. Looney Toons have been absent from Boomerang for over 3 years.

As you can see,I'd do Much Better than that Asshole Stuart Snyder. But strap yourselves in,'cuz I ain't done yet. Here is My beginning line-ups for Cartoon Network and Boomerang. Starting with Cartoon Network.

Cartoon Historian Top 5: Greatest Toonami Worthy American Cartoons

Welcome to the Final edition of the Top 5. And on this Final edition,we're gonna take a look at the Top 5 American Cartoons that Turner Broadcasting Should've picked up for Toonami.

5 - Voltron - The 3rd Dimention: I've always pictured this show on Toonami.

4 - She-Ra - Princess of Power: A show that would be great if paired with Sailor Moon.

3 - Extreme Ghostbusters: I think this show would fit Toonami well.

2 - Galaxy Rangers: So would this show. It has such an anime feel to it. No Guts! No Glory!

1 - Bionic 6: The Bionic 6 is another show with an Anime feel to it. In fact,not only is this show Anime inspired,but it was also animated in Japan. Sweet!

These Shows would've been a hell of alot better than crappy shows like Ben 10,Bakugan,and Blue Dragon. There are plenty of other shows that Belonged on Toonami,but these 5 were the most worthy(at least to me)

Well,I hope ya'll enjoyed this final edition of the Top 5.

Stay Gold,

Defending The Defenders: A Mortal Kombat Defenders of the Realm Defense

This Is a Cartoon Historian Special Presentation

Mortal Kombat Defenders of the Realm,was a Sunday Morning cartoon series that aired on the USA Network. Unfortunatly,the show was heavely critisized and dispised by the fantards,dispite having darker storylines that Almost rival that of Batman:The Animated series. Though,the show is great it's not without its faults.

Now the Fantards problem with the show is that it lacks blood,fatalities,and great fight scenes. The blood and gore aren't that big of a deal.Infact,in reality,it's a very very minor complant. Though the fantards make a big deal out of it.

However,I Will agree with them about the fight scenes and,somewhat,on the fatalities. I will now list all of the flaws of the Show.

Flaw # 1: No Deaths! There are no deaths in this series...which was annoying. The deaths don't have to be gorey(i mean look at the retro disney movies),but it was disappointing that no one died. Death Was mentioned and most villains came close to dying,but sadly no deaths.

Flaw # 2: The Not-So-Impressive Fight Scenes! If there was one thing Mortal Kombat is known for it's it awesome fight scenes. Sadly,the fight scenes in this show are slopely done. And I think there are scenes missing. Anyway,the Fantards have a right to complain about this one.

Flaw # 3: The Artwork and Animation. It's mediocre....very mediocre. Plus,it has errors. But,that's to be expected for a low budget cartoon of the early to mid 90's.

Ok,now that I've given you all of the Flawa,it's time to list the show's good aspects.

Good Aspect # 1: The Storylines. The plots of the series were good and serious,Unlike some of the other Game-based cartoons of the 90's,which were random and often times very lighthearted. Each episode is very well writen and had some emotion to them.

Another nice aspect about the Series is that The Main Bad Guy,Shao Khan,wasn't involved in all of the plots. In fact,he wes Only in a small amount of eps. There were multiple villian factions who were unrealated to Khan. This is was a huge and positive thing for action cartoons at the time.

Good Aspect # 2: The Voice Acting. The voice acting is excellent..then again,It's done by professionals. And I'm talking about the common group of VA's you hear in American Cartoons. I'll let you find out who plays who on your own.

Good Aspect # 3: The Music. The Music is well writen and goes wirth the scenes almost perfectly. In fact most of the music would fit rather well in the MK Universe.

I have said all than needs to be said about this show. It's not like what the MK Fantards say it is. It's very enjoyable..Ya just gotta give it a chance and Not compare it to the games. Here's a very very nice little tidbit for you,to help you watch the show: Don't Think Of It As A Game-Based Cartoon,But A Normal One.

Sound Advice from the Cartoon Historian to You.

Stay Gold!

Stefan 5-on-1 With The Dorkstalkers

This Is A Cartoon Historian Special Presentation

*cartoon historian theme plays*

*Stefan and All 5 members of the dorkstalkers are sitting at a round table*

Welcome to another totally awesome Cartoon Historian Special. Now this special is special,Why? because for the first time ever,I'm joined by the Dorkstalkers. This is their very first interview in over 18 years. Now some may not care about them,other may. But one things forsure,this is gonna be an interesting Interview. Welcome guys.

American Pyron: Thank you for having us.

American Raptor: Oh yeah,mate. It's great to finally be back.

American Dimitri: Yes. And Don't call us Dorkstalker. We are Not Dorks.

American Morrigan: Speak for yourself.

Dimitri: Silence,you flat-chested demon.

Morrigan: Why You!

Pyron: Enough!

American Anakaris: I am Happy to say that the Pharaoh's quest for Pudding has come to an end. And a very delicious one at that.

Riiiight. Ok. let's begin. So what have you've guys been doing for all this time?

Pyron: Well,after the Cancelation of Darkstalkers. We all decided to persue entertainment careers,despite the knowlage that once the'r show is canned,Animated characters have trouble getting work.

Raptor: We never let something like stop us from tryin'. Dig it!

Anakaris: To them,cartoon characters are like locusts in the Pharaoh's Kingdom.

Pyron: Anyway,we all auditioned for different roles...but got shot down every time. They said that we weren't the "Ideal" characters for their shows.

Morrigan: Hollywood really sucks.

Dimitri: *under breath* not as much as you *out loud* So,after many failiers,it was decided that we try other forms of work. It was a slow and painful prosses.but we each managed to get jobs.

Raptor: Unfortunatly,mate. We all were fired from them. We contacted our Agent to see if he had any roles for us? Sadly he had nothin'.

Anakaris: Good Agent,Bad Luck.

Pyron: So we decided to wait for anything from him. We spent decades living out daily life. Luckily,I had extra money.

Morrigan: Just enough to keep us goin'

Dimiti: We did do some odd jobs. But each was a 1 time deal.

Morrigan: Just like your dates.

Dimitri: Don't make me Bite you.

Morrigan: Oh,like you can.

Pyron: I said Enough!

Raptor: My latest gig was the opening act for the Misfits reunion tour. Gig didn't pay too well,but hey,a gigs a gig.

Pyron: We all pool our earnings to keep us going. We are living on my ship in space. Lucily,I have a great cloaking device,so no one can see or detect us.

Anakaris: I had a cloak once. I wonder what happened to it?

Pyron: We were thrilled when our agent called and told us that you managed to get in touch with him and were willing to help find us work.

Dimitri: At first we were hesitant,after all,could we really trust you. But after thinking it over,We've decided to take it.

Morrigan: My only gripe about this is that I might have to work with *points to dimitri* him again. It's bad enough that we live together,but do we have to work together again too. Work was my only salvation away from him.

Dimiti: You're no prize house-mate yourself. Shockingly,you're not the worst. Raptor is. He play's his loud obnoxious music every night for hours.

Raptor: Hey,I can't help it if I love playing my Ax. Besides,I gotta be prepared for any future gig that comes my way.

Pyron: *sigh* I deal with this kinda crap everyday.

Raptor: So,Mr. Cartoon Historian,what are we gonna do for this job?

Morrigan: And more importantly,how much does it pay?

It's a comedy show gig....

Dimitri *interupting and takin' offence*: We are Not Comedians. I don't do funny.

Morrigan: Then how come you dress like a clown?

Dimitri *angry*: You are Really starting to work my last nerve,you flat chested reject from a pros..*gets smacked with morrigans projectile*

Morrigan: You're Voice is getting on my last nerves,

Dimitri *gets up very angry*: That Does it *tackles morrigan out of her chair and the 2 fight*

Pyron *shouting*: Stop this at once,you Infants.

Anakaris: The Vampire and The Demon. Always fighting like Terriers and Callicos...or was that Eagles and Tigers?

Raptor: Yahoo! This fight needs some music*pulls out his guitar and starts wailing on it,playing music* Rock On,Dudes!

Pyron: *sighs and facepalm* Why did I get stuck with these idiots. Does the Universe hate me,or something?

*chuckles* Now this is great. See you guys are funny. And that's what you're gonna do..bring the funny.

Anakaris: Funny is like funny does! So says The Great Demi-God,Forrest Gump.

*Morrigan and Dimitri continue fighting*

Ok,guys that enough. *screams* Enough!

*the 2 stop fighting and return to their seats. Raptor stops playing his guitar*

Pyron: Thank you!

Now...I totally forgot the question.

Raptor: Maybe some tunes will jog your memory.

No that's fine. I just remembered another question. You can put on a concert later.

Raptor:*a bit upset* Fine.

Ok,do you guys attend any conventions?

Pyron: Not at all.

Dimitri: Not our thing.

Morrigan: Aye,those things get really crouded and ya have to wait in line for hours to get anything.

Raptor: Besides,we never get invited to any as special guests. whick kinda sucks. I mean,I have awesome musical talent.

Anakaris: Conventions are like the Great Laberynths of Nefertiti. You get lost real easily. It's very confusing.

Pyron: as are you my bandaged friend,as are you.

Ok,next question? Hows the rest of the cast doing? Do you talk with them anymore?

Morrigan: Not really.We don't seem to cross paths.

Dimitri: They are possibly avoiding you. Because you scare them so much.

Morrigan: Shut up. Atleast I'm not totally homely.

Dimitri: Oh,you're way beyond're downright gastly.

Morrigan *angry*: You want a foot in your face?

Dimitri: Forget it,you're feet smell so bad,not even I could stand it.

Morrigan *pissed*: I'm gonna...

Pyron*pissed,yelling*: Knock it Off You two or do I have to whoop both your asses..again. *sighs* Honestly,you 2 are nothing more than children. To answer your Question,Historian. No. We don't see or Here from any of them.

Raptor: Though,I heard Harry and Felicia are married. At least,so I've heard.

Anakaris: Ah,Human/Catgirl love! Very Sick! Smelly Succubus feet! Even sicker!

Dimitri: You and your scatter-brained proverbs. Do you Ever make any sence?

Anakaris: Of course I do...I think.

*Dimitri and Pyron groan*

Ok. So you guys haven't heard anything from you're former castmates?

Pyron: Nope,sorry. We haven't seen them in years.

Raptor: They never call,they never write. It's like they totally forgot about us. How rude!

So,what was it like off the set of your old show?

Pyron: Eh,pretty hum-drum. We usually talk for a while and then go our seperate ways until the filming of the next episode.

Raptor: Bishamon was kinda cool. I dig those Samurai-guys. And Hsien-Ko was kinda attractive for a Ghost Girl.

Dimitri: That Donovan was annoying,though. He and his Hindu mannerisms. He's a traveling Hindu monk in real life.

Anakaris: Hindu-Smindu,Rudabega is True Truth.

Morrigan: Would ya knock it off,with that. There Is no Great God,Rudabega.

Anakaris *grows offended*: You dare deny the existance of Rudabega,Great God of The Pharaohs! *quickly gets up* Infidel!

Pryron: Anakaris,knock it off!

Anakaris *sits back down*: Fine. But The Prophet,Mustafa will get you back for your insult,BatWoman.

Morrigan: Whatever.

Raptor: Another cutie was Felicia.

Dimitri: Yeah,she wasn't to bad looking. But Harry Grimore was another anoying one.

Morrigan: Y'know,normaly,I would say "You think everyones annoying",but this time I'm gonna agree. Grimore was a teenage wizard version of Oogtar,the Cave Kid. I never liked having him around. He was so annoying in so many ways. I also question why he was added to the show,since he wasn't even part of the games.

Raptor: Right,Luv. He also had this,'I'm Better Than You,Because I'm a Fresh Face', attitude. Little,Sot!

Pyron: Felecia was the only friend he had on the set. I trully have no clue what Felecia sees or saw in him?

Have you ever met your Real Counterparts,Y'know the Darkstalkers from the games?

Pyron: No. But they definatly heard of us. And they weren't too thrilled at the show. I read along time ago in a magazine,that they really though that the show gave them a bad name.

Dimitri: I remember that too. In that interview they said that America has turned them into jokes. I also remember,in that same interview,that my Counterpart thought that the show contributed to the falling popularity of their game series in the U.S.

Raptor: Those blokes got no sence of humor,I tell ya.

Anakaris: No Humor,No Victory!

Morrigan: I thought we did them a favor by showing them in a humorous light.

Right. Ok. Speaking of your old show.Do you wish your show got another season?

Pyron: Sometimes,late at night,I look out the window of my chamber and wonder what might have been,if the show continued beyond the 1st season. I wonder if the show would've improved or gotten worse.

Raptor *upset*: I'll tell ya what's worse,Fire dude,We didn't even get an action figure deal. That totally blows!

Anakaris: Just like the Desert Storm Winds.

Dimitri: I,for one,was glad when the show got canned. I was happy that I didn't have to work with Morrigan anymore. But unfortunatly,years later,I found out we were gonna live together. Time Sharing really pun intended.

Morrigan: Yeah well,You were no Mr. Happy Hour either,Bat-Breath. And I was triple upset that I was sharing a home with you.

Pyron *warning them*: Don't you two Dare start up again. I think you'd better move on to the next Question,Historian.

Right.Do you think you'd guys have better luck if you split up and lead seperate lives?

Pyron: I ask myself that same question almost daily. To be honest,I don't have a clue. Though,I do know that without these 4,I would have more room on my ship and less headaches.

Dimitri: I,for one,would've prefered it. Living without Morriganm would be a plesent dream. But the reality is,we can't afford to live seperatly...literaly. Our finances are limited.

Morrigan: I share the same sentement as,Dumb-Mitri here. As much as I'd love to live far away from him,I can't because of my finances. So infortunatly,I'm stuck with him.

Anakaris: We are one Big Sticky-Icky Family.

Pyron: Maybe you 4 should've time shared,and left me alone.

Raptor: C'mon dude,admit it,you can't live without us.

Pyron: Financially yes. emotionally,No way in hell.

Morrigan: Ya love us,admit it!

Pyron: I certainly will not.

Dimitri: He doesn't like to share his personal feelings. He most likely does.

Pyron *defencive*: Enough! Next Question,Please!

Do you think people often misunderstand you?

Dimitri: Yes. and it's all because of those damn Youtube poops.

Raptor: We may be goofy at times,but we're not stupid. Those videos make us look like brainless losers.

Anakaris: Youtube Poop needs to be flushed down the toilet. It's starting to smell worse than Cleopatra's sandals after a walk through the Sahara.

Morrigan: Well,the show's content didn't help matters for our popularity either. Ya gotta admit that. There were times where we acted downright dumb. I mean sure,the show was a funny parody of the Game series,but along with the funny stuff,came the Derpy stuff.

Pyron: Of course,people have different sences of humor. What's funny to some,is offencive to others. In our case,the Darkstalkers fantards. I just wish people would just treat us more seriously. We are not as stupid as these videos make us out to be.

Here's a fun one for ya. What are your opinions on todays cartoons?

Raptor: I don't mind them. In fact,I don't watch much Cartoons. Though,I do love Anime.

Dimitri: I don't watch much TV. I usually sleep during the day and go out at night.

Morrigan: I don't watch much TV either.

Anakaris: The great box of entertainment is both a blessing and a curse.

Pyron: I usually read. But from time to time,I watch TV to see whats on. Not very big on cartoons,but I must say that America's Sitcoms are getting really bad.

Ok,this ones for Dimitri. Is there anything that you and Morrigan Do agree about?

Dimitri: I hate to admit this,but yes. Sometimes we Do agree on things. Things that I will not disclose in public.

Morrigan: Not that we agree on much.

Raptor: I like it when you 2 fight. It's very entertaining.

Pyron: I wish they would get along most of the time and spare me some headaches. Too bad it won't happen.

Anakaris: 'Tis better to get along sometimes,then to have never gotten along at all.

Pyron: For a moment,Anakaris,you were starting to make sence.

Anakaris: I prefer rupies than cents.

*Pyron groans*

Ok.What do you see yourselves doing many many years from now?

Pyron *sighs*: Same old,same old,I'm afraid. I'm just cursed like that.

Raptor: With some luck,I hope to get a music contract. After all,I still rock and will always rock. I'm a much better artist than that repulsive little sot,Justin Bieber.

Morrigan: I really don't know. With so many failed jobs,things might just stay the way they are,like Pyron said.

Dimitri: God,I hope not. Spending the rest of eternity with Morrigan is a scenario would be too scary even for me.

Morrigan: Well,I'm not too thrilled about that realistic scenario either.

Anakaris: The Future is something you make yourself,like a sandwich.

Pyron: I'm impressed Anakaris. You managed to say 2 intellegent things in a row.

Anakaris: Holy Donuts!

Pyron: And now you have broken your streak.

Ok,final question. Hope you don't mind me asking,but what's your home life like?

Pyron: I,of course,am the owner of the ship. So I'm the Master.

Dimitri: Besides my forced bouts with Morrigan,I..

Morrigan *interups*: Just wait a bloody minute! What do you mean 'Forced Bouts'. You're the one who starts up. So if anythin I have forced bouts with you.

Dimitri: You're the one who starts things. I can list a million things that I can't stand about you.

Morrigan: Well I can list a trillion things I can't stand about you.

Pryon *yelling*: Shut The Hell Up! *sighs* You see now what I have to deal with. Between this,Raptor's loud insidious music,and being annoyed by Anikaris on a daily basis. My life is total hell. However,I do have those moments of peace.

Raptor: Hey,My music ain't insidious,it's Mega Awesome! You my fiery friend have no sence of music.

Anakaris: Home is like the inside of Nefertiti's sandal closet,there is no place like it.

Pyron *sarcasticaly*: Once again,Anakaris proves his great wisdom.

Ok guys,we are out of time. I'd like to thank you 5 for joining me.

Pyron: Well the pleasure was all yours. Hopefully,thanks in part to this interview,people will see us as who we truely are.

Dimitri: Yeah. I'm sick of us being looked down upon.

Raptor: If anything,those jerks they should appreciate the entertainment we've given them.

Morrigan: Or at the very least,respect it.

Anakaris: R.E.S.P.E.C.T.,That is what we'd like to see.

Well that's al for now,hope everyone enjoyed this special interview? For The Dorkstalkers...

Dimitri *interupting*: Stop Calling Us That,Damn it!

See ya next time on The Cartoon Historian.

The Cartoon Historian Presents: Cartoon What If's

This Is A Cartoon Historian Special Presentation

*cartoon historian theme plays*

*All 5 members of the CH Family are sitting at a round table*

Welcome to another totally awesome Cartoon Historian Special. I'm joined by Mina,Sailor Moon,Gohan Son,and of course Tom Z.

Mina: We also have 2 very special guests here today. Here they are From Megas XLR,Coop and Jamie.

*Coop and Jamie enter as the Megas XLR theme plays. the music shuts off as the duo shake hans and high fives the CH family*

Welcome gentlemen.

*Jamie and Coop take their seats at the round table*

Jamie: Good to be here.

Sailor Moon: Thanks for joining us.

Coop: Hey The Historian owed me for not putting the Megas XLR theme on his top 5 list.

Jamie: Well that sucks. Our theme is the best there is.

Gohan: That's debatable.

Jamie: Oh yeah,well what do you consider to be the best cartoon theme?

Gohan: How about Kappa Mikey's theme? It's very catchy and it's easy to learn.

Coop: Lame!

Jamie: You gotta be kidding.

Tom Z: As a longtime fan of Megas XLR,I must say it's a pleasure to have you both here with us today.

Coop: No prob,dude,Now lets get this party started,I'm starting to get really bored here.

Alrighty,here's the first What If. What If The New Thundercats Cartoon Was A Continuation Of THe 80's Toon?

Mina: It would rock. Though,it would be pretty short! Mumm-Ra would be released from the Book of Omens and he'd want some serious revenge. We may even find out what happened to the Thundercats that were Missing from the final scene.

Gohan: Same here,it will be very short lived,because most of the 80's cartoon is resolved. Villains like The Mutants,Lunataks,and Capt. Kraker have gotten closure,bad closure,but closure nonetheless. Theres just very few story left to tell in that series. Best start from scratch with an all new series.

Sailor Moon: Agreed with Gohan and Mina.

Tom Z: Ditto. Though it would've been nice if the Mutants and Lunatacks got better closure. If the series was a continuation,I guess they could've given them proper closure.

Coop: True that,sending these baddies to the circus was a stupid thing to do.

Jamie: Shameful,really. And what the hell was up with that Monster the Ancient Spirits of Evil sent after Lion-O after he beat Mumm-Ra anyway?

The New Thundercats Cartoon will be airing this friday. But watch it online and Not on Cartoon Network. Ok,next 'What If'. What If He-Man and She-Ra acted like a typical brother and sister duo.

Mina: That wouldv'e been awful for them. They would fight eachother more than the Baddies.

Sailor Moon: So true.While the heroes are fighting with eachother,Hordak and Skeletor would take over.

Coop: I heard the 2k2 series was gonna have that storyline...but it never happened due to the series being canned.

Tom Z: I think I heard something about that too.

Jamie: Sucks that the 2K2 series was canned. I liked it better than the 80's toon.

Gohan: Yeah. I agree with everyone here.

Ok,Next What If. What if Stimpy was the smart one and Ren was the moron.

Mina: The result would be the same,i think.

Sailor Moon: I haven't watched that show in god knows when.

Gohan: With Stimpy intellegent,the show would never be the same.

Tom Z: That's true. It'd also be a bit of a stereotype too. Y'know,Dog = stupid and Cat = intellegent.

Coop: Yeah. Imagine Stimpy slapping around Ren..tha'd kill him. He's such a small and weak dog.

Jamie: yeah.

Moving on. What If Batman The Animated Series was like the Adam West TV show.

Mina: That would be one of the the dumnest things ever. The series would be lame.

Sailor Moon: Yeah. He's supposed to be the Dark Knight,not the Dork Knight.

Tom Z: The show would be very lighthearted and corny. Definatly unlike the Batman we know and love.

Gohan: Yeah,Pathetic. I like adam Wests Batman,but I'm glad the Animated series ended up like it did.

Coop: True that. I don't want my Robin saying Holy fill in the blank

Jamie: Amen.

Ok. What If The Justice League was lead by Batman instead of Superman.

Coop: I'll go first. The Justice League would do a bit better.

Jamie: Yeah,even though he's not a team player,he would make a better leader. He's smarter and more resorsefull than Ol' Supes.

Tom Z: Yeah. Being the strongest doesn't nessesarily mean you're the best leader.

Gohan: I hear that. My Dad is one of the strongest guys in the universe and he's a very inept leader.

Sailor Moon: Kinda the opposit of me.

Mina: I agree with everyone here. Bats would make a better leader.

Ok next up: What if Commander Ferral found the Swat Kats secret base and found out who they were.

Jamie: Pass.

Coop: Aw c'mon,Jamie don't tell me you don't know who the Swat Kats are.

Jamie:I do but I've never seen an episode.

Coop: Dude you need to chill on Youtube more. Anyway,here's my 2 cents. Ferral would tottaly bust them. end O' story. The Turbo Kat would be impounded and the Hanger would be sealed. And finnaly Ferral will be a happy cat for finally busting his long time nemesis'.

Tom Z: That's the way I picture it too. Calli would likely be shocked. The press would definatly have a field day.

Gohan: I imagine so. All of Mega Cat City has yerned for the knowlage of the Swat Kats identity.

Mina: Ferrel would be forced to release them though. As Mayor Manx will grant them a full pardon once the Ciry is under attack and the Enforcers are Powerless to do much.

Sailor Moon: Too true.

Great points you guys. Ok,next one. What if Aang didn't run away from the Air Temple.

Mina: Simple. Aang would've been wiped out along with the Other Air Nomads.

Tom Z: Yeah. Then Aang would be reborn as a member of the Water Tribe and would be a Waterbender.

Sailor Moon: So it would be called Avatar: The Young Water Bender instead of Avatar:The Last Air Bender.

Gohan: The show would be very different,to say the least. Wouldn't be the same without Aang and team Avatar.

Coop: Plus. There's a big chance that the Fire Nation would dominate the world. Without Airbending,the Avatar is weaker than he or she would normally be.

Jamie: Well Zuko Could become a good guy and try to stop the Firelord with the Avatar. Though the possibility of them suceeding would be slim.

I agree. Ok next up: What if Saban Moon Did get the green light from Toei and the networks.

Sailor Moon: Ugh! did you really have to bring That up?

Mina: I think it would be hated by the Sailor Moon fan community,even moreso than the Sailor Moon dub. And more openly mocked then the Mega Man cartoon.

Tom Z: Hey,I liked both the Mega Man cartoon and the Sailor Moon dub. They were flawed,but that doesn't mean they sucked.

Gohan: I liked the Mega Man Cartoon as well..despite how weird it was. Anyhow,Saban Moon would fail in the ratings and only get 1 season.

Jamie: I recently saw that video on Youtube.. *shutters* Gave me a nightmare.

Coop: Yeah,though Compared to that Bratz cartoon,which Did air by the way,Saban Moon is a thing of beauty.

Amen Coop. Ok. What if The 80's Ninja Turtles show was more like the Mirage comics.

Coop: It would be an 80's version of the 2K3 series. Nuff Said.

Jamie: Coops right.

Gohan: Agree with Coop.

Tom Z: I don't think Bebop,Krang,and Rocksteady would be in it. Since they were never in the Mirage comic.

Mina: Plus I doubt the ratings wouldn't be as high as they could be.

Sailor Moon: Thank god it was different. I love Bebop and Rocksteady.

I hear ya,Moon Girl. Ok next one. What if In the 80's He-Man show,Adam never reunited with his Twin Sister,Adora.

Sailor Moon: My life would be altered alot. No reunion of the Twins means Adora doesn't get her Power Sword,and if that never happened,then She-Ra doesn't exist.

Jamie: I've never been a fan of She-Ra or the 80's MotU.

Tom Z: If She-Ra never existed,then Adora would remain with the Hoard and Etheria would fall under Hordak's rule...unless He-Man stops him. But I don't see how,since Skeletor schemes 24/7 and the defenders of Eternia must be prepared for anything from that Bonehead.

Gohan: That would suck if She-Ra never existed.

Coop: Yeah,the She-Ravers wouldn't exist either. Come to think of it,Neither would Xena Warrior Princess. Thank God te Twins Reunited.

Mina: I think you're overreacting a bit Coop. But,I gotta agree somewhat. Without She-Ra,roles of Female Heroes would never be the same.

Right. Thank God She-Ra exists. Anyway. What if Darkwing Duck was less of a comidic show and a more serious one.

Jamie: Don't look at me I never seen that show.

Coop: Seriously dude,ya gotta watch Youtube more. Darkwing Duck is all kinds of awesome. And if it were less comidic,it would be almost a clone of Batman:the Animated Series.

Tom Z: True that. As much as I love B:TAS,I have to say that attitude wouldn't fit that well in a world of talking animals...especially Ducks.

Gohan: The villains would be more deadly. Especially Negaduck.

Sailor Moon: Nothing would be the same. In fact the show would loose it's charm if it was more serious and less comical.

Mina: Yeah. And besides,Disney doesn't put Animals into dark enviornments. The closest thing we came to a darker Darkwing Duck is that one episode where Gosalyn travels through time and ends up in an alternate future.

Darkwarrior Duck. Even as a Post-apocolyptic Batman clone,he was still a chucklehead. Ok next up. What if Prof. Utonium's monkey,Jojo,was tame.

Jamie: If JoJo was tame,there would be no lab accident and the Girls would've never been born.

Coop: Neither would Mojo Jojo.

Gohan: Crime would rock Townsville. Everyone would suffer,even without Mojo.

Tom Z: True that,with out the PPG's townsville would be doomed. The Professor and JoJo would be hurt or killed.

Sailor Moon: JoJo's moneyshines were a good thing for Townsville.

Mina: Yeah. Though If the city was in danger the Professor would eventually create superheros..either by chemicals or by technology.

Science matches on no matter what. Ok. next up. What if Synergy never existed. Hey,A Jem what If.

Jamie: Pass,I don't watch that show.

Coop: As awesome as it looked,I myself never really got into that show.

Gohan: Never watched the show either.

Sailor Moon: The Missfits would Rule,because Jem and the Holograms can't exist without Synergy.

Mina: Yeah the show would be called The Pizzazz and the Misfits. Not a cool idea for a show.

Tom Z: Though it would be interesting. In my opinion.

Ok. moving on. What if The WCW got into the SatAM cartoon act like the WWE did.

Jamie: That would be stupid.

Coop: Right-on bro. I bet it would be even stupider than Hulk Hogan's Rock and Wrestling.

Gohan: I don't know guys. I mean isn't WCW supposed to be more serious than the WWF/WWE?

Tom Z: It Doesn't seem like their style to make one.

Coop: Yeah,but the Characters would be dumbed down even moreso than the WWE characters were.

Mina: I seriously doubt the WCW would even want a Saturday Morning program based on their wrestlers. I agree with Tom,It's not their style.

Sailor Moon: I'm not much of a Wrestling fan.

True,Mina. The WWF/WWE was always meant to be the Fun Wrestling Org....and that's why they were Number one. Too bad they suck today. TNA is even worse. Anyway here's the next what if. What if Samus Aran was in the Captain N animated series.

Jamie: Pass,I never liked that show.

Coop: Right. Even if Samus was in the show she'd be dumbed down. I bet either a dumn blonde,a Dude,or a radical who likes to fight and blow stuff up.

Tom Z: Plus there would be no need for Captain N,and the show wouldn't be the same. Though,I must admit when they ported Link over to Captain N,they made him more mature. So maybe they would've kept Samus the same way.

Gohan: I've only seen 1 episode and didn't really like it much. The concept is a cool idea,but it wasn't executed correctly.

Sailor Moon: Well,Samus was in the comic. So maybe she'd act like her comic counterpart.

Mina: The Comic was more serious and lacked the stupid,yet funny, plots and dialogue. Face it,Samus would be either dumbed down or a fish out of water. I'm glad she wasn't included.

Yeah.Though Tom has a point about Link,which brings us to our next What if. What if Link acted like his game counterpart in the Zelda animated series.

Tom Z: He'd be strong and brave. But silent and somewhat boring.

Coop: Yeah,despite how lame some of his jokes are..I kinda like him.

Jamie: Yeah,but his "Exuuuuse Me,Princess!" line kinda got annoying after awhile.

Gohan: The show would be boring if Link was like his game Counterpart. As lame as his humor is and as whiny as he can be,I kinda find this Link likable.

Mina: Ganon was awesome in that show least I thought so. He got way uglier in Captain N.

Sailor Moon: I found this Link annoying. Thank god they fixed this in Captain N.

Ok,next up. What if There was a G.I. Joe/Transformers Crossover movie.

Coop: That would Rock.

Jamie: Yeah. Starcream and Destro would rule as a team.

Gohan: Not to mention Flint and Ultra Magnus,Duke and Optimus Prime,Scarlett and Bumblebee,Lady Jaye and Arcee,and Cobra Commander and Megatron.

Tom Z: Baroness and Soundwave would be nice too. Bulkhead and Roadblock as well.

Mina: Yeah. The Joes would be much better human companions then those annoying kids.

Sailor Moon: I'm not too much of a Transformers fan or a G.I.Joe one.

That's cool,Moon Girl. Anyway,What if Fairy Godparents didn't exist.

Coop: Timmy Turner would be screwed royaly.

Jamie: Yeah. His life would be total hell.

Gohan: I can Imagine. Without Magic,Timmy Turner wouldn't be able to do anything cool.

Tom Z: Thus Making the series pretty boring. The fairies made up more than half the entertainment of the show. Especially Cosmo,Wanda,and Jorgen.

Sailor Moon: I wish I had fairy Godparents.

Mina: Though,Denzel Crocker would still be Fairy-crazy.

Yup. Next What if. Kim Possible acted like a typical American Teenager.

Coop: She wouldn't be that cool. She wouldn't be much of a heroine.

Jamie: She'd care more about teen stuff,than saving the world. Sad really.

Tom Z: Agreed. The show wouldn't be that great and be canned after a couple of eps. I'm glad Kim's the way she is.

Sailor Moon: And don't forget about Ron and Rufus. Their lives would be effected too.

Gohan: And all of those villains will run amok.

Mina: The entire show would suck. I'd be pathetic.

Yeah. Thank God,Ditzney didn't make Kim Possible like as normal teen girl. Ok. Next up,a Shego What If. What if Shego got her own series.

Jamie: That would totally Kick Ass.

Coop: Yeah,too bad Disney is to stupid now to make one.

Gohan: Agreed.

Tom Z: If Iger and his chronies weren't so mentally pathetic,Shego would've had her own series alraedy.

Mina: Yeah. Shego Rocks.

Sailor Moon: Too bad,Iger doesn't.

Yup. Ok,next up. What if The 80's Shredder Never met up with Krang.

Tom Z: The Turtles and Splinter would've never have mutated,because it was the Shredder who used the mutagen,which belonged to Krang,to turn The hereoes into what they are. The Shredder would eventually find Splinter aka Hamato Yoshi and kill him and the Turtles.

Gohan: I see it that way too.

Coop: If that happened,it would be the only TMNT continuity where the Shred-Head wins.

Jamie: Too true.

Mina: A very tragic ending to our favorite Green Teens. Plus,no Bebop and Rocksteady.

Sailor Moon: Yeah,but luckily Shredder met Krang and the Ninja Turtles,Bebop,and Rocksteady came to be.

The 80's show is an old fave of mine. Ok here's the next What if. What if Knuckles and Amy were in not only AoSTH,but also Sonic SatAM.

Jamie: Pass. I never watched either of these shows.

Coop: Dude,I swear to god,I'm gonna make you watch Youtube later. Anyway,If Amy and Knuckles were in The Adventures of Sonic The Hedgehog,they would be interesting characters. Amy would chase after Sonic in every episode,while Sonic and Tails avoid her...or atleast try too. And Knux would be guardian of the Master Emerald on the Floating Island,decieved by Robotnik,like in the games. In SatAM,Amy would have a crush on Sonic and concider Sally her bitter rival of love. Knux himself would be the same basically.

Tom Z: You took the words right out of my mouth,Coop.

Gohan: Yes,that's exactly what might happen.

Mina: Coop,you are amazing.

Sailor Moon: Yeah.

Nicely put Coop. ok next What If. What if there was a Star Wars animated series that continued after Return of the Jedi.

Coop: It would be a hell of alot better than Clone Wars.

Jamie: Word.

Tom Z: It would rock to see Luke Skywalker and Friends in their later years.

Gohan: Yeah. Luke would likely start a Jedi school,Han Solo and Leia would Marry,and Chewie would...well,do what Wookies do. The 2 Droids,R2-D2 and C-3PO,would likely live with Luke.

Mina: I see it that way too. If such a show wes made,It would be awesome. Though,I wonder who the villains will be. Palpentine is dead and theres no one I can think of besides him and Vader who's currently on the Dark Side.

Sailor Moon: Maybe it could be a new type of enemy.

May The Force Be with Anyone who atemps to make this cartoon a reality. Anyway,here's the next What If. What if Cartoon Network and Disney never strayed from there roots.

Gohan: They would stay great.

Tom Z: For Cartoon Network it would Be American Cartoons,Toonami,and absolutly No Adult Swim or Live Action garbage.

Coop: Yeah and My show would be on for a couple of more seasons.

Jamie: Chicks Dig Giant Robots.

Sailor Moon: For Disney,we'd have awesome shows 24/7. No Music videos,no Teeny-Bopper trash,and no Disney XD.

Mina: God I miss the old days of Disney. Damn You,Iger!

Amen to that. And Damn Stewie Snyder too. Anyway,What if The Superfriends Show lacked those 2 annoying teenagers and their stupid dog.

Jamie: I never payed attention to that show.

Coop: Same here. I watched The Challange of the Superfriends,though. It was decent,campy,but decent.

Gohan: I hated that show. They tried to mix Scooby-Doo with DC. Ugh!

Tom Z: Had that show lacked the teens and pooch,it would've been a bit better. Watchable. However,with or without those 3 extra characters,the show is still pretty flawed.

Mina: Yeah. Hannah-Barbera made one too many Superfriends shows.

Sailor Moon: You Said it,Mina.

Right. Ok next. What if The Teen Titans lacked Robin on their team.

Jamie: They'd suck.

Coop: Well,Not nessesarily,Jamie. They'd still win,but not as much.

Tom Z: Robin is like Batman,in a sence. It's his cunning,heart,and leadership skills that make the Titans victorious every time they go into battle. Robin may not rely on superpowers,but he doesn't need them. He makes up for it with his amazing agility and use of his utility belt.

Gohan: That's right. Robin is the Ideal leader of the Titans. They would fall apart without him.

Sailor Moon: Just like the Sailor Senshi would fall apart without me.

Mina: Or Stefan would fall apart without me.

Funny,Mina. Anyways,you guys are right about Robin. He rocks. Next up: What if The Thundercats never went to 3rd Earth,but to a different planet in the first episode.

Jamie: Things would be very different for sure.

Coop: Such as,different Allies,which will drasically alter the Thundercats way of life. For instantce,The Robear Berbals helped built the Cats Lair,however since the Berbals don't exist on the new planet,the Cats would either build the Lair themselves or search for help. As for enemies,the Mutants followed the Thundercats,so they would still be the main enemies and Most likely the Only familiar foes. Mumm-Ra and the Beserkers wouldn't exist on the planet. I'm not sure about the Lunataks though.

Tom Z: Wow a Thundercats without Mumm-Ra would suck. Though I'm sure there would be a similar foe on the new planet. As for the Cats Lair,The Thundercats would eventually meet up with some allies who know how to build and the Cats Lair would be built,though the look may be a little different. Allies are allies. The new guys may act and work differently,but their purpous would remain the same.

Gohan: Yeah. Catle Plun-Darr would also be built by a different crew. The Brutemen were the ones used for slave labor in the true continuity. So in this fake new continuity,the Mutants must seek out and enslave similar creatures.

Sailor Moon: All and all,the Thundercat-Mutant war would pretty much be the same. I think the only things that would be different,besides the planet,would be the allies,look of Cats Lair,and the other villains. Though I'm not really sure about the Lunataks.

Mina: Also Pumyra,Lynx-O,and Bengali won't meet up with the Main team,as they landed on 3rd Earth and since the Main team are on a different planet,these 3 are gonna remain slaves to the Berserkers. And Mumm-Ra would rule everything.

That sucks. good thing the Thundercats went to 3rd earth. Ok next What if. What if Phineas and Ferb found out about Perry the Platypus' secret.

Jamie: They'd have their memories whiped by the Agency,ala M.I.B.

Coop: That sounds about right.

Gohan: They'd be amazed at the fact that their pet is really a Secret Agent and Major Monogram would allow them to join Perry on a single mission...and afterwards whipe their memories of the whole thing,like Jamie said.

Tom Z: Agent P. is one cool semi-aquatic mammal.

Mina: Phineas and Ferb are the Only thing worthwatching on Disney these days.

Sailor Moon: True that.

Ok. What if the NY Gov. strongly disapproved of the Ghostbusters and did something about it.

Sailor Moon: The Ghostbusters would be out of buisness and even arrested. They'd be in jail and the Ghosts would run amok.

Gohan: Ask a simple quetion,get an obvious answer.

Tom Z: Well said Moon girl.

Coop: I was gonna say the same thing.

Jamie: The Spooks would haunt every city in the world and no one would beable to do anything about it.

Mina: The Gov would get impeached and the new gov. will grant a full pardon to the Ghostbusters and soon after,they will be back in buisness.

Like it or not,The World needs the Ghostbusters. Ok next. What if Invader Zim was very dangerous and not baffoonish.

Coop: We'd be screwed. A competant Zim would pretty much dominate Earth easily and fall infavor with the Tallest.

Jamie: Plus,The Tallest would give Zim a different robot assistant. One that isn't crazy. So no Gir.

Tom Z: The show wouldn't be that funny and would loose its charm. Not to mention the the series would be short lived.

Gohan: Not to mention boring.

Mina: I'll take Baffonish Zim over a Competant one anyday.

Sailor Moon: You said it.

This brings us to our next What If. What if Gir was Sane.

Jamie: That would eliminate 55% of the funny.

Coop: Agreed.

Tom Z: A sane Gir wouldn't be very entertaining. Gir's psycotic ramblings and crazy antics make up a good portion of the show's comedy.

Gohan: A sane Gir would never be liked either. It's because he's a nutjob,that Gir is loved so much.

Sailor Moon: Yeah: He cracks me up. no need to change his personality.

Mina: So it's settled. Gir should stay Insane.

Crazy Gir = Entertaining,Sane Gir = Boring. Next up. What if The Brain was without Pinky.

Coop: Brain might succeed in taking over the world.

Jamie: He'd either do it himself or have a competant assistant.

Tom Z: The show would suck,period. Brain without Pinky,would be like Toonami without Anime.

Gohan: The Brain needs Pinky and Pinky needs The Brain. 'Nuff said.

Sailor Moon: The only reason I watched that show was because of Pinky. Narf!

Mina: That mouse is very funny.

Agreed. ok were are in the final bunch of What ifs. What if Doug stayed with Nickelodeon.

Jamie; I'd likely stay the same.

Coop: Yeah,there would be some differences,but I think the storylines,for the most part,would be the same as the Disney version of the show.

Tom Z: Yeah. Nick would use the same Storylines that Disney used,though they would add their own twist. If Nick still owened Doug,the show would likely get 2 extra seasons,before being scrapped. Plus,Billy West would still be doing Doug's voice.

Gohan: Yeah. I heard he didn't like the direction Disney was taking the series. How many seasons of Disney's Doug were there,anyway?

Mina: I think 2.

Sailor Moon: for the record,I like Disney's Doug. It had charm.

Yeah,but Nick's Doug was better. Ok 3 more what ifs to go. What if Cartoon Network gave Toonami hosts Tom and Sara their own series.

Coop: Tha'd be awesome.

Jamie: Totally.

Gohan: I'd watch it.

Sailor Moon: Me too.

Tom Z: Well,it would be cool,but realistically the Network Execs wouldn't go for the know how retarded they can be.

Mina: Yeah. The fans may like it,but the Execs never listen to us.

True that. Personally,I'd love to see a Tom show. Anyway,here's the next What if. What if The Bratz show was still airing...with new episodes.

Coop: Ugh! Please,dude I just ate.

Jamie: I think I'm gonna puke.

Gohan: That would be a total nightmare

Tom Z: Why the hell was that show created again?

Sailor Moon: To pander to the 5% of girls who like Bratz.

Mina: Some one get the barf bucket,I think I'm gonna blow chunks.

I get to use it first. Ok let's give our stomaches some relief and move on to our final What If. What if Darkstalkers:The Animated Series got a 2nd season.

Jamie: Why? that show was horrid.

Coop: but the villains were great though. they're very funny.

Tom Z: Maybe if they just used the 5 Baddies: Pyron,Anikaris,Raptor,Morrigan,and Dimitri,they could turn it into a comedy.

Gohan: Those 5 kinda remind me of the Ginyu Force...except less competant fighters.

Mina: I think the villains were the only thing worh watching in that show.

Sailor Moon: yeah. I don't like Harry Gimore.

Well we are out of time. I'd like to thank my panel for their participation and opinions. Until next time,for Coop,Jamie,and the Cartoon Historian family,I'm the Cartoon Historian saying Stay Gold.
