Top 10 Things That You Are Probably Sick And Tired Of Hearing About Certain Animated Shows

Don't worry, there WILL be more "(X) is a ripoff of (Y)" statements added into this later on (hopefully)

The Top Ten

Dragon Ball Z "is the greatest anime ever created"

I'm just tired of anime in general. This is Murica people! - RobertWisdom

For one thing, quite a few other shows from its own extremely stereotypical GENRE of shonen anime would BEG to differ with this one (Jojo's Bizarre Adventure being by far the most popular legit example but still definitely worth mentioning), and for another...well, again, it's just an extremely boring and generic type of anime. The world of Japanese animation has SO much more to offer than just this; why don't people take the time to explore more of it before deciding what its all-time "magnum opus" masterwork is? - xandermartin98

Same, person in the bottom

Dragon Ball Z is good, but is not the great anime ever created

South Park "is alt-right just because it uses edgy humor"

Same here as with Filthy Frank and iDubbbz (and also I Hate Everything and Ralph The Movie Maker, just to name a few, in some of the more exceedingly ignorant political purists' eyes, shockingly enough, even though they generally aren't actually part of this trend aside from their astonishingly immense cynicism and sarcasm):

First of all, GROW THE HELL UP, (DAD,) and second of all, take the time to actually do your research before making outrageous claims like this one. Ironically, this also ties into the excruciatingly stupid double standard of how these types of jokes are often considered perfectly fine on television but not on the Internet (which basically IS television at this point, might I add); but either way, it bears repeating that regardless of how downright abrasively pretentious some of the users of edgy humor may be (cough, the creators of South Park most especially, cough), simply using edgy humor does NOT make them politically against the groups that they make it ...more - xandermartin98

Isn't it the other way around? The right wing is conservative and wants to keep everything in order, old fashioned, civilized and clean, the left wing is more anarchic? - Martin_Canine

Edgy humor is good.Alt Right are degenerates though. - DarkBoi-X

Courage The Cowardly Dog "scares me more than Salad Fingers"

I can only remember really being scared by about four things in this show, honestly:

1) The stomach-vore sequences in Muriel Blows Up, with the giant sentient carrot bomb and whatnot
2) When Ramses' ghost unleashes the Egyptian Plagues upon Courage's house in King Ramses' Curse
3) Courage playing with his friends' dead bodies in the ending of The Great Fusili
4) Freaky Fred, naturally, mainly because he looked like something straight out of Children Of The Corn
And yes, only half of these things even COMPARE to the organ-harvesting episode from Invader Zim, let alone the general plot premise of Salad Fingers, in terms of raw pants-soiling scariness/creepiness - xandermartin98

Steven Universe "is a truly fascinating psychological exploration of LGBT culture like none other of its genre before it"

I'm not even going to go into this topic again, but rather just list quite a few other animated shows that, whether actually good overall or not, have already covered LGBT culture in far less predictable and cliched ways before it:

Spongebob Squarepants: Ambiguously, with Spongebob and Patrick and their relationship with Sandy
Ren & Stimpy: Borderline-erotically so, even in the original series, between its two title characters
Powerpuff Girls: If they actually DIDN'T turn out to be lesbians, I would be pretty shocked by it (also, HIM)
Family Guy and American Dad: Creepily enough, with Stewie in the former and Roger in the latter
The Simpsons: Mainly with the Bouvier sisters, though it also had quite a bit of other stuff going on as well
The Loud House: As much as I hate to admit it, this show goes absolutely all OVER the place with this theme
Death Note: What with the whole weird and creepy "love/hate" fetish that Light and L end up developing toward each ...more - xandermartin98

I watch Steven Universe but absolutely hate the LGBT - 23windomt

Why are you watching a show with lesbian characters if you hate the LGBT community? - RoseWeasley

Oh yeah it covers so many heavy topics as well

Sorry, nothing has portrayed LGBT characters quite as well as the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha franchise has with Nanoha and Fate. They aren't just great female/lesbian characters but also great characters who just happen to be female and lesbian as well. - PerfectImpulseX

Ren & Stimpy and Invader Zim "are the best Nickelodeon shows just because they are the edgiest and most violent and also the flashiest-looking outside of Avatar: The Last Airbender"

For one thing, Hey Arnold and Rocko's Modern Life easily have both of these two completely TROUNCED every which way in the writing department (most ESPECIALLY in the humor department in Rocko's monumentally social-satire-laden case, even if the show admittedly was cripplingly overspecialized into being purely comedy and little else).

And for another, Ren & Stimpy's animation (regardless of how beautifully it was drawn) was literal DECADES behind its time and mostly just looked ugly and awkward, whereas Invader Zim's was a similarly hideous attempt at fusing that of The Fairly Odd Parents with that of modern-day anime and Futurama
Hell, even Spongebob (during its original heyday) was EASILY a better show overall for the most part in my opinion
And even in the edginess department, Rocko has R&S easily beaten in quite a few ways if you think about it - xandermartin98

Rick & Morty "requires an extremely high IQ and an insanely vast knowledge of pop culture in order to understand it"

Rick and Morty fanbase in a nutshell. - Kevinsidis

Mostly the latter combined with "embarrassingly crippling and nostalgia-obsessed absorption INTO pop culture", to be perfectly honest with you (at least it's smarter than Futurama, but certainly not by much) - xandermartin98

The shows funny but super overrated any one can understand it

Adventure Time "is so cool and epic"
Avatar: The Last Airbender "is best anime" (for real)
Camp Lazlo "sucks on its own merits just because it sucks when compared to Rocko's Modern Life before it"; also, Rocko's Modern Life itself is "the only good thing that Joe Murray has ever produced" and "infinitely smarter than Ren & Stimpy in every way"

Don't get me wrong; Rocko's Modern Life IS an absolute MASTERPIECE of both 1990s culture and all-ages animated comedy alike, and in many ways is EASILY Nickelodeon's all-time magnum opus by a LANDSLIDE when removing Avatar from the channel's equation...however, "Joe Murray's only good work" it is quite simply not. The only real reason why I claim it to be this is out of pure disappointed spite regarding the fact that Camp Lazlo is indeed COLOSSALLY more of a kids' show overall and no longer has Rocko's razor-sharp satirical edge.

When judged on its own merits as a plain old run-of-the-mill mid-2000s kids' show, however, Camp Lazlo is at the very least CONSIDERABLY above average and definitely worth showing your kids as a warm-up FOR Rocko if nothing else; let's face it, MOST cartoons kind of suck when compared to (cough) Joe Murray's unbeatable magnum opus (cough) - xandermartin98

DanganRonpa "is a ripoff of Phoenix Wright"

I love both Danganronpa and Ace Attorney - JazzPunk

The Contenders

Family Guy "is bad because it ripped off The Simpsons"

To be fair, The Simpsons IS a pretty generic type of show (not that it's bad or anything, but still)
Also, what The Simpsons has turned into nowadays is honestly barely ANY better than current Family Guy, so there's that too - xandermartin98

The two shows have almost nothing in common. - 3DG20

To be honest Family Guy is funnier than the Simpsons - 23windomt

F-Zero: GP Legend "has the greatest finale in anime history because Falcon Punch"
Spongebob Squarepants "has literally no good episodes outside of its golden and silver ages"

There were still good episodes. People are most likely saying this just because of a few episodes they got offended from/hated such as One Coarse Meal, A Pal For Gary, Yours, Mine, And Mine, The Card, and Are You Happy Now?. - Jasmine21064

"Well, I don't tell you how to watch YOUR show! " - Patrick Star, paraphrased from "Krusty Towers" - xandermartin98

Futurama "is underrated" because it is less overrated than The Simpsons
Gross-out humor "is okay when old cartoons do it but not when newer ones do it just as annoyingly"
Puella Magi Madoka Magica "is the greatest magical girl anime of all time"

Totally agreed, did anyone forget about Sailor Moon, Cardcaptor Sakura, Cutey Honey, Precure, to name a few? This anime just seemed to be "dark" just for the sake of it, just because something is dark and gritty doesn't necessarily mean it's good/great, as opposed to something being light and happy doesn't necessarily mean it's bad/horrible.

Even Magical Girl Raising Project is better than it, though it is similar to it in ways, but I like the concept of it being a Hunger Games/video game thing better. - SailorSedna

Um...The first three seasons of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, ViVid Strike!, HeartCatch Precure, Cardcaptor Sakura, and Senki Zesshou Symphogear might all have a word with that statement... - PerfectImpulseX

Teen Titans Go "is such a dreadful abomination against humanity; I wish I could still watch the original Teen Titans"

I remember when I used to hear this over and over again. It didn't even take long for me to get annoyed from hearing this at all. - Jasmine21064

It's for little kids. Get over it. Teen Titans Go is good - 23windomt

(cough) Haven't you ever heard of free and completely harmless streaming websites (cough) - xandermartin98

Invader Zim "gave me such a raging crush on Gir, Zim, and/or Dib"
Rocko's Modern Life "is underrated" because it is less overrated than most of the other heavily praised Nickelodeon cartoons

Ironically, it's more heavily praised than most of them too - xandermartin98

King Of The Hill "is underrated" just because it is less overrated than Beavis & Butthead
Spongebob Squarepants "is a ripoff of Rocko"
Rocko's Modern Life "is a wannabe of Ren & Stimpy"

Quite the EXACT opposite, actually (honestly wipes its bum with R&S overall-quality-wise) - xandermartin98

The Cleveland Show "is racist against black people"

Accept this is 100% fact. - RobertWisdom

Think of it like how Punch-Out handles stereotypes: in the absolute friendliest way possible - xandermartin98

The Loud House "has such hot characters"

SIKE - 23windomt

The Simpsons are better than The Flintstones
