Gotta agree, these both are really just bland and pointless.
They have the same problem as the New PPG: there's no hook.
I mean, Bottom almost had a concept, but then they don't really seem to do shit with it and it just becomes the usual "friends hanging out" schlock.
12 Forever was the only one of these pilots to both make a world and have a purpose, being a kind of chalk-zone but with more themes of growing up.
That's the difference among the CN shows currently running, they either have a good reason to exist or they're "friends hanging out then shenanigans".
PPG, Clarence, TTGo! fall into the latter, but at least Clarence does it in a grounded world while TTGo! revels in it's DC fuckery.
This kinda leaves the new PPG and these pilot attempts trying to fill a spot that doesn't need to be filled.
