Saturday Morning by Mole-Chan Saturday Morning by Mole-Chan
Yeah, a piece titled "Saturday Morning" submitted during Thursday evening. Not a mindscrew, honestly.

I have a love-hate relationship with cartoon network about now. On one hand, a ready access to cartoons is the only thing that made this poorly timed shot possible.

On the other hand, 6Teen? Seriously? I hate this show. and I certainly wouldn't want my 10 year old dollie watching it. I could have just broken out the Chowder DVDs but this was the only TV in the house that fit the mood I wanted, and it has no DVD player. sadface.
---

I've been wanting to do this shot for a while. Ever since I got Henry's pajamas, actually. Something with quaint natural lighting, with a pretty universal call-back to childhood. Getting up at 7 AM to watch cartoons because you knew all the good ones would be over by 11.

This was actually the first shot in the session, and I cannot express how lucky that is. The rest of them were pretty crap.

and I'm pretty sure Henry is not happy with me, making him hold a little Barbie plate and sit in I'm-not-really-sure-this-is-suwarrico-but-it-might-be. Oh well! Such are the sacrifices we make for art!

I hate CN/Nick anymore. All the shows suck. Except Flapjack and Chowder. <333

Henry's so cute~ It's a great shot. Very realistic.

I've yet to see Flapjack. D: I've heard it's very good though. But yes, Chowder <33333

Eee, thank you >w<

Aww, this shot is seriously nostalgic! And Henry's suwarrico pose is adorable.

On a side note, 6teen is pretty terrible. I really have no idea how it would appeal to any age group whatsoever, even to tweens on the verge of true teenage-dom.

X33 eee, thank you! I kind of had a hard time figuring it out, so I'm glad it's cute! ;o;

I don't get it either. >o>; I'm kind of sad to say the designs are..actually kind of attractive. So they really do feel wasted on the show, since the personalities attached to them are really irritating.

Henry wins at the whole "aww"-eliciting thing, you know. C:

The character designs have definite appeal, but those characters are kind of...shallow. And then there's Total Drama Island, I don't know how to feel about that. :<

C: Indeed~
And exactly! It's like, you work hard from the design standpoint to make sure people can like your character, then just completely undo your own work when it comes to personality by making them all jerkasses. :C A jerkass here and there is fine, it makes a show interesting. But when the entire cast is like that, just no.

and TDI I'm also unsure. I can't even like that one from a design standpoint because the style just rubs me the wrong way. But at the same time it's a reality show parody so you're kind of in the mindset where you already -expect- to hate everyone on it, so it's not as bad.

It's awful, and it also seems like the show's on every time I flip to cartoon network. D:

I think TDI and 6teen were created by the same people, but those reality show contestants have the oddest body shapes. O_O

I guess I just don't think reality shows, parodies or not, are really in cartoon network's domain. Stick to the good old cartoons. :C

D: You too? I just thought I had terrible luck.

It would make sense if they were, oddly enough. xD;;

:C Indeed. The market for reality shows is really oversaturated as is. CN really doesn't need to trade their place serving something few people did for something that we have too much of.

I remember a time when I turned on the TV, and something good like Foster's or the Grim Adventures was on...-nostalgic sigh-

CN needs to reconsider what it's doing. I understand that they're trying to seem "hip", but it doesn't work.

:C and indeed.

I really like the lighting, it looks cool and fits the moods. x3

But like. Yeah. Cartoon Network. I don't even bother watching it anymore, every since dumb shows like Camp Lazlo started showing up... it's just... sickening, how low quality cartoon are now. So I don't even know what the crap shows they play now are, and quite frankly, I feel healthier for not watching them.

X33 ee! Thank you~

and yes, very much agreed. D: The sad part being that Camp Lazlo is probably one of their better ones at this point. See, I don't even get to tune into their better lineups because they probably show them around 3 or on the weekends, when I'm either busy or asleep. I usually tune in around 6 if I ever feel like it, and always catch this..pile of garbage...without fail. Every time!

XDD 6teen isn't all too bad. There are some funny episodes? But I agree Chowder would have been better :D

I do like how this looks, though his leg looks kinda awkward.

XD I just dislike it. I really dislike it in this shot mostly because it's for..well..TEENS. It doesn't fit the shot at all.

And yeah, kinda does. xD You can't see the other one from this angle even though I'd think you should. So the result is..meh.

XD I see

and you can kinda see his other leg, it's hanging down over the edge isn't it?

Mole-Chan Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
XD Actually, both legs are posed more or less the same way. So again, I don't know why you can't see it. :C
