Captain Planet sucks. I think I'm going to write to Cartoon Network and ask them what's up with putting that on the air. I Am Weasel is missing from the lineup but Captain Planet is on every day at 5:30am? Lame!|
Is Ted Turner so frightening to people in the industry that they couldn't tell him how lame that show is? Was there no one with the guts to speak up and say "Hey, a lame-ass superhero and kids with bad accents is going to suck"?
And what's up with accents in cartoons? Why is it if a character is supposed to be Latin or eastern European or Asian, do they all end up sounding like Hadji from Johnny Quest? Are we that afraid of diversity? What, it's not OK to portray accents of non-English speaking people, but it's OK to fake English, Australian, New Zealand, and Deep South accents? What's up with that?
I'll grant that some shows have accurate accents, but so many shows have that lame Hadji accent. I wonder if they do that because they're afraid someone will get all mad "Vee don't all speak that vey!" or if it's because the casting director just doesn't know how non-English speakers sound when they speak English.
I think I'm going to write to Ted Turner and tell him what I think.
Also, why does the Adult Swim t-shirt say "cus anime is teh s uck"? I was under the impression that "teh s uck" implied something was of low quality. Help me out.
