CN's greatest mistake

Why I Gave Up on Boomerang, Qubo and Starz Family after the 2010s
June 18, 2020
Cartoon Network has been acquiring pretty abysmal shows in the 2010s to the point where they become a dumping ground for horrid imported shows from Canada w/ one of them being from the 2000s. If you like these shows, please understand that only I felt actual pain for watching this & good you like them. I still don't under why Boomerang, Qubo and Starz Family want to rerun these shows years later. Plus I'm glad the Sling on Roku doesn't carry these channels, making more easier to avoid these nightmares like the plage.

So here are the Top 5 reasons why I'm not going to support Boomerang, Qubo or Starz Family for now on.

5.) Cloudy w/ A Chance of Meatballs: The Series:
Cloudy w/ A Chance of Meatballs: The Series is not a kids show (which is why it failed in the US), it's more like a show aimed at the mentally insane with disturbing fetishes, That's all.

Flint and Sam are portrayed as [email protected]$$ adults held back in school run by a short mafia boss yeti.

I really like the Cloudy duoilgy, but not enough to ask for a TV series. Before I watched this show, I saw a preview clip, but I did lower my expectations on the show. (in a positive way). I was like: "Well, let's watch it then." But reviews were wrong. The show is really bad. The show felt so cheap, like I could make one like this (no, seriously, I can).

The voice acting is bad. Their acting is something like we can see on a movie on Cartoon Network's Flicks block. It's a bit better than Megamind or Free Birds' voice acting, but still cheap. Dialogues are mostly really clich├ęs. Actually, there is one actor that did pretty well. Cal mainly because he doesn't talk.

There are some moments in the show where you're like "That's dumb, nobody will do that." For example, when the cop guy has everyone at show bully Sam for having a cloud in class. Nope. Also, the show is really predictable. The movie is not funny as well. It's supposed to be funny, but it's not. I don't know about others, but this show was not funny. I don't like that Corus Entertainment should even make shows for children if it's not appealing to them.

The special effects were bad, especially the scene when The cop gets a close up on his ugly mug. Also, I remember that there was one awful gross-up detailing.

In the end, this show is only for adults and not kids. I don't think that this show doesn't deserve a second chance.

4.) Sidekick:
Oh my is this series awful. You could basically consider it the sequel to My Gym Partner's a Monkey. Sidekick makes me want to spontaneously conbust. It is completely unwatchable. I have put myself through torment watching a handful of episodes, and I can surely say, this show does not have any effort, AT ALL. Another thing that really burns my waffles is the idiotic fact that the series was renewed for a second season during it's run in the US. why exactly? I have no idea why Cartoon Network has such high hopes for this series. South Park is my favorite animated series of all time, and this series tries to be like it, but fails completely. Sidekick also tries to be similar to it with the friends hanging out plots. Sidekick is not worth your time. I highly recommend you check out great animated series like The Loud House or The Casagrandes. Not this. If you like this show, good for you, it is my opinion. If this series gets renewed for a third season, all hope is lost. And keep in mind people, an animated series aimed towards VERY young kids doesn't have to be about a bunch of people acting like toddlers all the time and making the same jokes and recycling the same laughing animation. Cartoon Network and Qubo, for the love of humanity, Import better shows.

3.) Be CoolScooby-Doo:
This have to be one of the worst cartoon reboots that I've seen in my entire life.

Somehow, "Be Cool Scooby-Doo" managed to be even worse than "Bordertown". And like "Bordertown" this is just another lame "Family Guy" wannabe.
Everything about this show is terrible. The animation is awful beyond belief, with hideous designs that made the awful art from the Seth MacFarlane cartoons look beautiful in comparison.

All the characters from this show are either unlikeable jerks or annoying stereotypes. And the jokes...I don't have any problem with offensive humor. Too bad that this show is painfully unfunny, and all the attempts to be "controversial" and "edgy" came out as forced and annoying. This show FAILS to be funny. I saw a few episodes and they were not funny.

Be Cool Scooby-Doo is a complete waste of time, money and animation. My advice is to avoid this show like the plague.

0/10 (And I would rate it with a negative score if I could)

2.) Scaredy Squirrel:
I'm stunned to see a show as bad as Scaredy Squirrel hasn't been buried in shame like it should have been years ago. It's not only one of the worst cartoons to ever hit the air, but is also one of the biggest rip offs of all time. The show centers around 2 friends, in particular on Scaredy, a character that never gets any respect. The premise doesn't sound that bad, but after you see how it's handled, you'll be wishing this show would be canceled.

If you watch this show, you'll quickly realize how much this show looks like Joe Murray's hit show, Rocko's Modern Life. I don't mean it rips it off a little, it rips it off almost point for point. From the whole idea of a fish out of water in an all animal town, to most of the character designs, and to how some of the characters act, you'll know this is nothing more then a cheap clone of Rocko's Modern Life. Unlike that show though, this one here goes and scrapes the bottom of the barrel and is nothing like the beloved Rocko.

If there is one word I could describe Scaredy Squirrel it would be repetitive. Everything in this show is so repetitive and monotonous. The plots are downright recycled and all pretty much play out the same way. Something strange happens, Scaredy is butt of joke, wines and complains, learns nothing. Rinse, recycle, and repeat and you got this show in a nutshell. Very rarely, and I mean in a blue moon, will you see some special holiday episodes, but even then those are recycled. It's not just the plots though, it's pretty much everything else. All the jokes are repeated and are NEVER funny at all, especially that "Late for Work" joke. The same dialogue is used from time to time in other episodes. Even the same sound effects and zooming in of the camera when a character freaks out is overdone.

The characters themselves are awful, especially our so called "hero", Scaredy. He claims to be some smart character, but in reality he is a selfish, arrogant, jerk who thinks he's better then everyone else. He constantly disobeys the only person who's nice to him, he'll blackmail someone into doing something for him, ruin a life of a character who was nice to him, and get's punished for it. He's NOT cool at all, this cat is a blackmailer, whiner, and thief. The other characters are no better at all. Not only do some of them steal character designs from Rocko's Modern Life. but they are just annoying and irritating characters that are unlikable and are forgettable. Even the villains are awful. Nestor is nothing more then a Ed Bighead wannabe and acts like a complete idiot most of the time. Momma constant says sociopath-based puns that could make the strict elderly farm turkey from the opening scene of Free Birds look like Pigeon Today from Storks. None of these characters are likable, much less are they really interesting and cool.

The artwork and animation is another issue worth gripping about. While the set designs are mediocre at best, they all look unimaginable and may even be ripped off from other cartoons, but considering this show and how much it rips off a lot of 90's Nickelodeon, that should be no surprised. The animation is just dreadful though and is horrible in almost every way. The characters move in such an awkward way that it looks like they all have arthritis or something and lip syncs seem to be off in almost every scene.

I can't recommend this show to anyone at all and urge everyone to stay away from this awful piece of garbage. Everything in this show is so repetitive from the jokes, to the writing, and to the plots. The characters, especially Scardey, are awful nor are they likable in any way, shape, or form. The artwork is awful and the animation looks very poorly done. I don't know why Cartoon Network and Starz Family is still letting this show air and giving it the green light, but I hope somebody there finally realizes how bad this show is and give it the ax. In the meantime though, do yourself a favor and avoid this show at all costs.

My advice is to just watch NickRewind on TeenNick to see Rocko's Modern Life instead of watching this, believe me you'll actually have a better time with this show than Scaredy Squirrel

1.) Baby Looney Tunes:
The whole show is just loud and everyone is just Screaming. There are no actual jokes or anything to laugh About, it is just cringy all the time to watch. The storyline feels like it was written 10 minutes before starting filming an episode. You would think with all the Attention and possibilities they had they would at least make something decent, but no they had to make this garbage. It is so bad all you do is watch in disgust and shake your head.
