Dude - you've got me defending the goddamn Thundercats and I hated them mightily as an eight year old. Why? Because at least they look like something.
Fuck the storylines, fuck the characters, fuck the actual cartoon - people are salty because effortful art has been sidelined for effortless art. This may surprise you, but people hated the ever-loving shit out of the Muppet Babies, too. Why? We went from this:
And clearly - if you want to watch infantilized bullshit nobody is going to stop you. I mean, they gave Seth McFarlane Cosmos and Star Trek so we're pretty much fucked forever. But every time something with one aesthetic gets retconned for an objectively worse aesthetic, people are gonna bitch even if they were never going to watch either version.
I had to buy a Porsche 911. It was the only sports car with a back seat. I've hated Porsche 911s my entire life. But by the time the car buying public had SUV'd their way through the marketplace, a 14-year-old Porsche 911 was the only sports car I could buy for less than $100k. And that's fucking retarded.
I give two shits about Thundercats. The fact that sports cars are dying out? That shit bugs me.
