Forgive my ignorance but is there really a demand for Tom and Jerry still?



There’s a demand for anything done well.
'cause justice is the one thing you should always find.

^^^heck yeah.

As a kid i was and still am a fan of the OG hanna barbera  shorts, from the 40s through the 50s.
The slicker, flatter animated early 60s stuff was ok, but not near as good. Mid 60s Chuck Jones brought back better animation and i daresay rivaled the OG material. I mean, it was frikkin Chuck Jones.

Then came the dark ages, AKA red bowtie era of the 70s, and the dark DARK ages of Tom & Jerry kids.

The various movies they've  had from the 70s on up i’ve never liked.

There isn't.

They're a product of their era, leave them the fuck alone. Otherwise you get stupid
shit like this :

Your example doesn't work because the new Ducktales doesnt change the formula. It modernizes it for sure, with changes to the personalities to fit a current style of narrative, but does it still for the most part, "act" or even "feel" like a Duck Tales show? Yeah.

ultrabender (who never has a good idea), is suggesting something that changes the mold completely.

Furthermore, I have no fucking idea where he was even going with lumping the 4 shows he used as an example together, when the 4 of them couldn't be more different from one
another.

Then again, this is ultrabender.

My example works fine because thats the point i was making, that changing the formula isnt necessary.
Modernizing aspects of the show while remaining faithful/respectful to the OG material yields better results.

But yeah, Ultrabender. ;)
