An Amazing Low…

For some unknown reason, I just subjected myself to watching the end of the Yu-Gi-Oh cartoon on WB with Jason. Oh. My. God. Cartoons have reached an amazing low – that was so incredibly stupid! A cartoon about people battling with cards. Wow. Can it possibly get any worse?

Oh, maybe it can. Now we had a commercial for “Hulk Hands! With real Hulk sounds!”

Thank goodness I can still get the Flintstones, Scooby Doo and the Jetsons on Cartoon Network…

You are right, they have reached a new low. Except for Cardcaptor Sakura, that’s cool…in the original Japenese form.

Oh, and Saturday morning cartoons, which used to rock when I was like 6-7 years old, now sucks…

My son is SOOOOOOOO into that darn thing lately! I don’t get it. And that Hulk Hands thing looks just stupid. So glad my kids don’t want that.

Judi hit the nail on the proverbial head, though. Just ads for stupid toys made in Asia. Hmph.

Yu-Gi-Oh has been responsible for a series of nightmares that I’ve been having lately. Reminds me of a time back in college when I experimented with some less then pure substances.

Girl! Josh and I had to take a moment at Target a month or so ago and play with those Hulk hands. They were fun! How can you class the Hulk hands in the same category as those crappy cartoons?

I have a 14 yr. old brother and he’s addicted to Yu-Gi-Oh. Why can’t they be into the Teenange Ninja Mutant Turtles or something… something that doesn’t have a card game with it.

Heh, personally I think that Scooby Doo is incredibly boring and repetitive – there’s only so many times you can watch them foil the villain who’s pretending to be a ghost before it’s just lame. 🙂 I can’t say that I’m a big fan of Yu-Gi-Oh, either – I don’t like cartoons that are created for the sole purpose of selling merchandise (like Pokemon). Now Dragonball Z and Rurouni Kenshin are really cool – maybe you should get Jason hooked on those shows instead. 😉

Jason has watched both Dragonball Z and Ruruoni Kenshin – he likes both of them. I find them all odd, but I should add that I’m not a big fan of anime either.

And don’t even get me started about just how WRONG anime porn is. Wrong, on sooooo many levels.

I’m so glad to know I’m not the only one that thinks that! My bro progressed from ninja turtles and power rangers to digimon, pokimon, and all the rest that are somehow related. I know I probably misspelled those last two, it should show how much I don’t pay attention! Not only does he now watch the cartoon (word being used loosely in this case), but he has the cards. I had to track down a set for him recently. What happened to transformers and he-man? I could handle them, they were nowhere near as violent or complicated to understand!

Yes, yes it CAN get worse. Don’t ask him about Beyblade – kids fighting with spinning zipcord tops. You know my extremely high tolerance for animated shows, and I can’t even stomach this one.

(DBZ was actually reasonably interesting but SO DAMN SLOOOW – I could miss a week of it and still be caught up. Can’t remember which one Ruruoni Kenshin is right now.)

WOW and i though i was the only one with an obsessive brother. I tell him every day hes waisting his money on this crap but what younger brother listens i mean really. When he gets into the cards theres no stopping him. HUH its annoying but im happy to see im not alone

Yu-gi Oh is a great cartoon! sure, sometimes the plots are a bit thin, but it is fun. Also, the characters are dressed great. and the overall storylines relate things like transportation infrastructure, competitive marketing tactics, global positioning, archeology, etc.
to the basic struggles we all have, not good verses evil, but within our own lives, and everyday dealings with peoples.
