Uncle Grandpa just suffered from having a weak main character and a lack of talent on the writing/storyboarding team. There were too many NuSpongeBob crew members who kept UG from having the well-paced comedic timing and more clever jokes that made other modern slapstick cartoons like Gumball, Wander Over Yonder, the new Mickey Mouse Shorts, or even Teen Titans Go!
. UG almost always went for easy jokes that subsequently fell flat or were executed in ways that kept them from being truly funny.
Pete Browngardt had worked on Chowder and Flapjack in the past, so it’s clear that the guy is talented. He just staffed a lot of the wrong people. Luckily, Looney Tunes Cartoons will be different. Ever notice how David Gemmill’s episodes tended to be some of the best in the whole series? It’s a good feeling to see one of UG’s strongest directing some Bugs Bunny cartoons.
