Top 10 Things from the 20th Century that Majorly Jumped the Shark During the 21st Centuryxandermartin98
The Top Ten
Granted, the 1990s Nick lineup wasn't really THAT great overall, but for cartoons alone, it gave us Ren & Stimpy (horribly written show, yes, but unbelievably brilliantly animated), Rocko's Modern Life (easily one of the top ten if not top five best all-ages satire shows ever; I really don't care what anyone else says), Hey Arnold (deeply relatable), Rugrats (also pretty deeply relatable), The Angry Beavers (one of the most underrated slapstick shows EVER) and Doug (the show that started it all).
And that's not even mentioning all of the live-action shows (most of which were also pretty terrible in the 2000s, believe me).
And now, moving on to the 2000s, we have Spongebob (great show but nowhere even NEAR the writing level of Rocko or the artistic level of Ren & Stimpy), Jimmy Neutron (sorry to break it to you guys, but I probably wouldn't have developed my brain fetish in the first place if not for this ugly CGI dung-heap and Spongebob), Fanboy & Chum-Chum (needs no ...more - xandermartin98
What do you mean jumped the shark?
Around 2013 - blackflower
Pretty much all of the good stuff (besides Episode III, which even then was still a pretty hugely "middle-of-the-road" type of good) became relegated specifically to the extended universe SURROUNDING the films - xandermartin98
Not to me - blackflower
Luckily, THEY seem to at least be somewhat recovering from it (Teen Titans Go being as dreadfully abysmal as it is notwithstanding) - xandermartin98
I hate cartoon network
I stopped watching this network for a reason.
Scratch that, for MANY reasons. - CloudInvasion
I normally don't like to beat dead horses here, but Michael Bay is a film director who (at least as far as these films are concerned) very genuinely sucks his own stupidly oversized Devastator interpretation's "ball bearings" - xandermartin98
Yes, honestly even more so than Futurama (technically, Futurama was from 1999, so making it count for this list is stretching quite a bit) - xandermartin98
Not to me - blackflower
Well, the GAMES are starting to recover from it, at least - xandermartin98
This junpe the shark in 1992
It’s still ok - blackflower
No - blackflower
THE WHOLE TIMELINE OF THIS SERIES IS IN CHRONIC DISARRAY.
THE FANBASE IS AT WAR... - xandermartin98
I dunno; something about Parappa 2 was just completely lacking the very distinctively one-of-a-kind "labor of love" charm of its predecessors, even if it WAS technically a much better game with music that was instrumentally composed in vastly more complex ways.
The amount of features the game had when compared to previous sequel UmJammer Lammy (which was on PS1 as opposed to PS2 for Christ's sake) was also quite pathetic as well.
And after THAT game completely flopped, the series got merchandised and "kiddie-fied" literally to death and was never properly heard from ever since; sad, I know - xandermartin98
Please tell me this is a popular opinion (no offense to the band, it just quite frankly strayed itself a bit too far from what traditional music is supposed to be for my liking) - xandermartin98
Even though games like 1-2-Switch and Metroid Prime: Federation Force were crap, I still like Nintendo.
Nintendo didn’t make cooking mama
Mostly console-wise, but they've also been releasing some pretty forgettable filler game-wise as well (Animal Crossing, Cooking Mama, Metroid Prime Pinball and Federation Force, Super Princess Peach, Metroid Other M, Yoshi's Touch And Go, Game & Wario, Nintendo Land, 1-2-Switch, Mario Hoops 3-on-3, Wario: Master Of Disguise, Picross 3D, Legend Of Zelda: Triforce Heroes, Wii Series, etc)
Overall, however, the amount of all-time classics that their systems are somehow STILL managing to pump out like milk from a cow's udders more or less makes up for it; just ask the Metroid Prime, N64/GCN/WII Zelda and Mario 64/Sunshine/Galaxy trilogies - xandermartin98
Hopefully Hasbro can save it - Sailor Sedna
Only a little - blackflower
The sequels suck - blackflower
