Just A Thought

A blog about whatever's on my mind. So expect video games, anime, comic books, and bacon.

Cartoon Network, in its vast wisdom, decided the best way to advertise a medium as rich as animation is to ditch the visuals and replace them with a bunch of unfunny quotes. This isn’t the first time CN has done this. This originated back to 2006 with the "I Pooted" billboards. Amid Amidi of Cartoon Brew had a great quote regarding this type of marketing campaign and it’s sadly still relevant today.

Isn’t it ironic that a network specializing in cartoons – that most visual of art forms – has chosen to promote its product by highlighting the dialogue in its cartoons? That says far more than I could ever say about the visual entertainment value – or lack of – in the shows that they currently produce.

    The clever advertising doesn’t make up for the terrible animation they have been producing recently.
