Matt Groening versus Seth MacFarlane
« on: August 25, 2007, 11:07:26 am »
I think most people agree The Simpsons (created by Matt Groening) is the best cartoon show ever made (despite the gradual loss of quality since 1996 when Groening left the show).
But then a new series, Family Guy (created by Seth MacFarlane, which some people insist it's just a Simspsons rip off) started to take its place. Later, MacFarlane comes up with American Dad! stating his superiority in this genre.

Groening just had some sketches and about development, he drawed and writed. MacFarlane draws a bit, voices the most funny characters and develops.

Now, do you think this shows will ever be half of in the Simpsons in their peak? I love both series, although I prefer the other two to American Dad!. Which designer you like the most?

Personally I prefer The Simpsons. Family Guy is fun but it isn't anywhere near as deep as The Simpsons used to be.

Definately, and Family Guy and American Dad are both ripoffs of The Simpsons. And by making a second show he just displayed that he really didn't care enough for the first series and was leaving it to work on itself, and moving back and forth just brings to worst. But Matt did that too, making one other worthwhile series.
But this is all my opinion, so don't flame me
:O
Also, Gunner is one of the children.
It's true.

Family Guy is vastly funnier than the Simpsons. American dad has brilliant spunky political humour. Futurama has an incredible style to it, and is very inventive.

Then again, I own all series of Futurama, Family Guy and American Dad.

I don't like South Park in the least.

I'm a Futurama Man 1st and Family Guy 2nd.

I'm starting to like South Park a little more than the Simpsons now, despite its legacy. Family Guy...is just meh. It's ok for awhile but then it just becomes toilet humor. IMO South Park = Robot Chicken > Simpsons > Futurama > Family Guy

Seasons three through nine of the Simpsons are some of finest achievents in television histroy. They will not be topped by family guy or Futurama. (even if futurama is awesome and Family Guy is good as well)
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I think Futurama is the best, I've get every season, give me a quote and I can name the Season, disk, and episode number or name :D...well usually I can, recently I've been sorta forgetting because I haven't watched them in a while.

I like them all, when it comes to my cartoons, I don't care...they're all great! Hell, if they kept making Tom and Jerry I can bet you I'd still watch it!

Isn't he technically a 'God Entity' though? We never actually heard what he was. He's so suggestible :D, and I hear he's in the new movie.

...I'm glad I'm not that suggestible, could be confusing (suggestible is the word I'm thinking of...right?)
