Cartoons based on video games are evil.
« on: January 09, 2006, 08:14:43 am »
I remember watching years ago, the mario cartoons....I loved them. (at least I thought I did)  When I heard one of my friends had a dvd of them, I was so excited that I rushed to my dvd player and put them in.  But they were pure horror!!!!  They were nothing like mario, mario and luigi for one had weird brookyln accents.  I know Charles Marinett wasn't voice acting at the time, but come on!!!  I remember this one episode in the smb3 cartoon when they go to the big giant land thingie, and they save some giant...prince mushroom thing.  Evil, absolutly evil!  What are your guys most hated pervsions of video games?

it doesn't take much to know that these cartoons aren't that great. They were only made to latch on to the hype that the video games created, so they could get some cash for it. So their hearts were probably more in the pocketbook, than in the cartoon itself.

There is the best Cartoon of a video game ever and thats Earthworm jim that show was great I wish thery made more or at least release to DVD. Concerning Marios Brooklyn accent if you read it mentions who Mario was origionally from Brooklyn at some stage. He must have moved there after growing up in the mushroom kingdom where the stork dropped him off as a baby at the end of Yoshi's island.

Well I knew there was an Earthworm Jim Cartoon, but I hate Earthworm Jim, so I'll avoid it for good.


The thing about video game cartoons are is that people say they aren't like video game movies.  Well, they aren't but not in the way they mean.  They're WORSE!


Number of video game cartoons I can think of offhand:


Mario:6

Sonic: 5

Pacman: 1

Megaman: 3

Legend of Zelda: 1

Kirby: 1

Bubsy: 1

Earthworm Jim: 1

Mortal Kombat: 1 (The tv series was actually worse)

And let's not forget Captain N.



That's all I can think of offhand and all were just as bad or worse than video game movies.

And why, why was yoshi a jar jar binks character in the tv show?  Why did he talk like a moron?

I'm pretty sure earthworm jim was a tv show before it was a game.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

It's a cartoon. It is not supposed to be realistic. If they were completely realistic, they would be boring. To you, more boring.

we are forgetting one major video game cartoon here, the Pokemon series

Pokemon was a cartoon first.

There are some good cartoons that were at first video games but all the ones I know are anime.

Shingetsutan Tsukihime
Air
Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien
Shuffle

To name a few of the top of my head. I've never played the games but I've seen three out of those four and they were darn good.

Pokemon was a game first, Digimon was a cartoon first. How do I know Pokemon was a game first? Because the game used to be called "Pocket Monsters" until some lawsuit, theres no mention of the cartoon series at that point.

Excuse me. The game did come first. I don't think anyone ever really heard of Pokemon before the anime was established here in the States but I could be wrong about that too.

Edit: Oh, and Pokemon, the cartoon, blows which isn't an argument against "cartoons based on video games are evil" thing.
