Conflicted. Animation seems cheap but the style seems unique compared to other shows. This might improve with the 2nd season. I don't like some of the voices but the others aren't too bad. The villains could be interesting and the little creatures are adorable. I'll give it a chance and if it doesn't drag me in by mid season 2 I'll give up.
I really hope we get to see the other Care Bears as well (Like Love-a-Lot Bear, Harmony Bear, My person fave True Heart Bear, etc.). Hopefully some of the My Little Pony Friendship is Magic ideas can rub off on this series? What I mean by that is not be too childish like how MLP isn't only for kids but also for adults. I just want to see this being very unique like My Little Pony and Steven Universe. It has the potential 0^0
So after so two or three years since their last creation of the Care Bears cartoon, they're going to do another one. From the way how this newly reinvented version of the cartoon show looks from this successful franchise, well, from the way it looks and sounds and it's traditionally hand drawn or 2D animation. I can dig it.
Yeah, bronies would probably harass people for liking Care Bears (even heard one idiot one claim "Care Bears is a rip off" when they never saw it). FiM has sucked for four years now, in the fifth season, the writing quality was starting to fall through, and at the end of season 5 and start of season 6, the writing quality completely fell apart, the show tripped precipitously down a steep and rocky hill and never recovered. And if you daresay any negative thing about it or the drop in quality, be prepared for a lot of them to attack and harass you. The movie sucked too, being released three years too late, during the show's decline, whilst the original Care Bears movie (and its sequel) came out during the 80's series' prime and were far more enjoyable despite whatever flaws they had (though I won't deny the 80's series started to slide in quality around 1987, but more watchable than modern FiM, and the Nutcracker film was decent so they went out on sorta a bang).
+icecream hero Yeah, and I think the more time passes and the more people look back on it, the more they'll realize it was never really that great in the first place, those who say it's great now (as in rabid ones who will accept literally anything as long as it has ponies) won't be saying that 5-10 years from now and I feel FiM won't age well in the long run.
IKR? As a former FiM fan (never a brony), I can declare FiM has sucked for four years now, in the fifth season, the writing quality was starting to fall through, and at the end of season 5 and start of season 6, the writing quality completely fell apart, the show tripped precipitously down a steep and rocky hill and never recovered. And if you daresay any negative thing about it or the drop in quality, be prepared for a lot of them to attack and harass you. The FiM movie sucked too, being released three years too late, during the show's decline, whilst the original Care Bears movie (and its sequel) came out during the 80's series' prime and were far more enjoyable despite whatever flaws they had (though I won't deny the 80's series started to slide in quality around 1987, but more watchable than modern FiM, and the Nutcracker film was decent so they went out on sorta a bang).
+Sailor Sedna It's mind boggling how they misinterpreted the characters. Old Blossom: Strong Confident, the most reasonable character, the most normal character, the boss who could probably ground the other two if she wanted to New Blossom: Dexter in drag Bubbles: Actually she is the closest to the original only she isn't a vegetarian anymore and is more vain. Old Buttercup the toughest one, is a bit sassy, argues with Blossom the most, mischievous. New Buttercup:Way too mischievous way too mean.
+icecream heroYeah, plus what's also dumb is they're weaker as hell in the reboot (Bubbles breaks an arm after a building piece falls on her? Give me a break), and they even ripped off this thing from a Super Sentai (Japanese inspiration for Power Rangers) season Maskman, Aura Power. And let's not even get started on that infamous scene with a panda that makes me surprised the people who worked on it aren't in jail...
+Sailor Sedna I can't stand that reboot either. Gone is the hilarious slapstick, amazing jokes, bad puns, double entendres , and violence. Now we have Adventure Time style surrealism instead of actual jokes. The Girls cause 90% of the problems so they are a bigger menace than the actual villians. The characters don't act like themselves. Character: What ever you do don't do that Powerpuff Girls:We did it and that creates a monster somehow.
>more shitty bean-mouth calarts style
>more craaaazy rando humor and "we're so hip and cool and self-aware" writing
>wtf they formed non-agression pact with sniddlers but are still expanding their 'care' bullshit into surrounding territory is this an allegory of Israeli encroachment into Palestine or something
They're never gonna stop
+Sailor Sedna Omg! I remember u! I'm not sure if you remember me but I was Mlpfan123! But I do agree with you on that. If My Little Pony can have some dark situations so can the Care Bears. I'm just hoping we see more Care Bears (Maybe True Heart Bear since she's my fave and the fact that she's the first care bear). They should have more 80s references ;-;
The root problem is clients that set up tight deadlines and don't pay enough. And most clients aren't aware about all the work behind every cartoon. Good animation costs a lot of money and takes more time.
+Gnome de Plume I've been studying animation my whole life and I'm currently attempting to apply to CalArts.
The animation isn't /terrible/, but yes, these guys are correct when they say this type of animation is cheap--however its not puppet animation. it is flash (possibly toonboom?) animation done with tweening. This is...decent tweening but not amazing. The most popular animation that does tweening right now are shows like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Rick & Morty, Bob's Burgers, Star VS. The Forces Of Evil, and pretty much any show that looks like this (i wanna say Big Mouth does this but the show is so forgettable i dont recall)
Anyways, the reason digitally animating with tweening is so cheap is because typically frame by frame animation is sent overseas (usually South Korea) requiring a full second team to be paid to animate each frames while the american team writes, storyboards, designs characters, color blocks, etc. Both teams have pretty heavy workloads!
With tweening, you do draw animatics or storyboards, but often the animation can still be done here as you break the animation down into symbols and move them around as if you were doing 2d claymation.
Puppet or bone animation is cheapest, typically requiring a full body characters parts to be deformed stretched, flipped, etc. It's considered very bad and is typically used nowadays in youtube animations from what I usually see, but I feel like ive seen it a bit in kids shows before.
Hope this clears things up a little!
Noooo, you brought Wish Bear into this mess. :'( My wish was NOT granted. Can't wait for this to be cancelled. When can someone who actually knows the potential of the IP get control of it and create a new series? Why is it always people with no understanding of what is there? *sigh*
+hartsfang fandom as is (mostly ones of the 80's one) is small though, and most Care Bears Tumblr pages are alright though (sadly adult stuff does exist for Care Bears but it's very rare and so reminisce compared to the MLP one)...
+standleyd Yeah, I only saw a few episodes of that, but now that I've seen what the fandom's like and some dark horrid secrets I found out about some of the creators I lost my interest in it (ever hear what Rebecca Sugar drew once?). :(
Still no Love-A-Lot Bear? She's my favorite hasn't had anything resembling a significant role since a few episodes of the DiC series. That was over 30 years ago. Us hopeless romantics always get the short end of the stick it seems…
After over a decade of modern Care Bear failures, and despite me being more of an old-school Care Bears fan, I must admit, this actually looks like it could be decent. I like how it's got its own lore in its own alternate universe (I still consider the 80's the true universe), the character designs are cute (though I like the 80's ones better), the Wiffles kinda remind me of the Winkies from the Wizard of Oz universe, I'm getting a bit of Lord of the Rings and Star Trek vibes, the animation, whilst nothing thrilling and they obviously weren't sweating bullets making sure it looks, like say, Over the Garden Wall good, still works and I have a feeling it'll be a good balance of slice of life and adventure. They even brought back the Rainbow Rollers! I just hope that if this incarnation becomes popular, it won't end up all...perverted like another popular cartoon ended up becoming thanks to certain people. I'm not expecting it to be better than the 80's Care Bears series, but just a good, fun, enjoyable Care Bears program.
And by Jove, I love Bedtime's British accent. <3
Love Boomerang but their remakes are a bit off from the originals. I tried the Monchhichis remake but could not finish the first episode. The original is best. It was like a PBS Kids show or something. Totally lost its original sense of adventure. Plus their ears shrunk and their hair/fur is a bit different. Anyway, I'll give this Care Bear remake a try before I cast too much judgement on it. I would like to see more 80's cartoons on Boomerang. Anything after the 80's is just boring to me.
+hartsfang I think the bronies more would harass new fans for liking the new show or thinking it's better than FiM, not respecting opinions (yeah, I know there are good bronies but the fanbase is a trainwreck and I've encountered more bad ones than good).
Hope it doesn't go the Simpsons route though, like FiM is doing; FiM is now a total has-been, a lot of plot threads/lore are resolved in a terrible way, make no sense and contradict past information (new writers), they ruined a good amount of villains there with bad reformations, it now teaches bad messages, newer characters keep appearing to replace the older ones, most of the former main cast has been pushed to the background and only show up for unfunny comic relief or to lose whatever character development they had, the tone is now a boring slice of life with constant filler episodes, the movie was terrible, the producers for it seem to be focusing more on toy sales and quantity over quality, and a lot of former fans I've known about have left/given up on it.
+AlexReynard Nah this doesn't look like We Bear Bears at all in We Bear Bears the backgrounds are semi realistic and the anatomy is realistic except for on the Bears and the faces look cartoony. In Steven Universe the characters are more off model and do more wild takes. Also Steven Universe loved to make everything pink and the eyes would be bigger. These characters would look out of place in Steven Universe. Also the outlines aren't thick enough.
+Sailor Sedna Certainly! But that was part of what inspired the thought: everything in the 80s had its own separate 'cute' aesthetic. I'm mentally going over the 90s and 00s too. I wonder if it has anything to do with technology? Maybe the Adventure Time style is easy to draw with tablets?
Sechskies Eun Ji Won and rookie singers Lee Soo Hyun and Kim Eun Bi performed the third OST single titled "Love Song". The rookies, who are both training to debut in HYWY Entertainments girl group HYWY Girls, joined the veteran to sing about falling in love with an unlikely person. The rhythmic medium temp track is the perfect tune to make your spring days even brighter.
As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
