Things to Avoid When Making a CartoonIf you’re making a cartoon, avoid adding ANY of these elements to the show or face the wrath of critics or Rule 34 artists! NOTE: This list is satire, and not to be taken seriously.
The Top Ten
You can't fail if you don't try. - shadomatrix
Ironic - BorisRule
Just don’t make a damn cartoon! - ReturnOfScorpio
The biggest recent example of this (as of July 2019) is Bea, from Pokémon Sword and Sheild. The moment the toes become visible, you’ll have fruits from FootFetishBooru come naruto running up to them. - ReturnOfScorpio
Hate incest shippings? Don’t make sibling characters! Dipper and Mabel Pines became the victims of Pinecest, Lincoln Loud and his sisters became the victims of Loudcest, and (it’s not exclusive to western animation) May and Max from Pokémon became the victims of PetalburgShipping. God help us all! - ReturnOfScorpio
This is getting kinda stale by now. Scooby-Doo made it cool, Gravity Falls reinvented it, and everybody and their mama wanted a slice of Alex Hirsch’s pie. Welcome To the Wayne, anyone? - ReturnOfScorpio
If the infamous Mr. Enter finds out you made a cartoon that isn’t up to his standards (which are garbage), he will dedicate >3 episodes of his “Animated Atrocities” series on your show. - ReturnOfScorpio
Chances are, once it becomes a hit, you’ll lose the show for some reason and it’ll be milked for years to come. Spongebob? - ReturnOfScorpio
If you let Disney get it’s hands on your show, you’ll never properly be able to license it again! Oh, and if you have a dead kid, you can’t put a character from your show on their grave stone (this happened with Winnie the Pooh. Google it)! - ReturnOfScorpio
Can we change the shirt color?! - ReturnOfScorpio
The summer vacation plot has been milked dry by now. How about an adventure in the winter during school? Because how many shows need to be “hey, wanna do many adventures this summer, or just one big epic one? ” - ReturnOfScorpio
These guys are in damn near everything! Get somebody else! - ReturnOfScorpio
No! Teenagers don’t find summer love, and dads aren’t swearing!
Night is very difficult because instead of being able to use bright primary colours, you have to have as many shades of grey as you possible want.
