>>100721277>But I've yet to really see anything like that in cartoons.
There's a first for everything, but things don't pop out of nowhere. Stuff evolves down the line and interacts horizontally with related things.
I tend to look at things from the perspective of the audience, but I also try to take into account the things a creator is dealing with.
While I can sympathize with someone getting upset that their best wasn't enough, grueling effort isn't an excuse for inadequacy.
There is another thing to take into account, though, and that is making sure that what is considered "adequate" isn't unfeasible or impractical. It would be unreasonable to expect movie-quality CGI in a television show. They're on a tight schedule. Of course there are going to be animation errors here or there once in awhile. Those awesome ideas that the creators had often don't get realized because of constraints or lack of confidence from higher-ups.
With all this in mind, I just don't see how this controversy is a "hard-working animators vs manchildren" thing. I understand that the most obnoxious voices drown out the rest, and I would probably lose my patience too in their position. I also believe that as professionals it is their duty to persuade and educate the audience about their creation and why they should give it a chance. Consumers like it when they feel the creators' empathy. They don't like it when the majority is lumped in with the vocal idiot minority.
