I`m surprised I haven`t seen `toons with an English irreverence matching the TV comedies over there. I was expecting to see something similar to the irreverence seen on shows like '8 out of 10 cats' or sitcoms with young lads getting caught wanking off. :lol: So this sort of thing hasn`t migrated to cartoon format then?
.


It mostly appears in Comics like Viz.

Sadly they were.

I think it ran for three series on BBC3, still slightly amazed they got away with some of it. Maybe my fave bits were the segments where a husband (Clive?) gave ludicrous excuses for where he'd been, usually based on a film plot or a songs lyrics (Hotel California!). The punch line would be the sordid reality of where he'd actually been.

We were virtually swamped with Asian, mostly Japanese cartoons along with our own productions. Other then Paddington, i`ve never seen any BBC `toons.
Maybe it was the matter of the incompatibility between the scanning systems PAL and NTSC, I can`t say. I am having fun viewing these. Thanks much. :)

BTW, while i`m on it...any Aussie toons? :lol:

Angry Kid

British, decadent teenage toilet humour in a claymation short format. Loads of it on Youtube but you have to sign in to prove age.

Is it funny? Yup.

I read very recently somewhere that Dangermouse is about to get a re-boot.

Also not mentioned yet another Cosgrove Hall classic was Chorlton and the Wheelies which was mainly aimed at preschool/young primary audience yet still part of that golden era of British animation of 70's/80's. Great voice characterization in this one.
Just make the music that you enjoy (failing that go for a walk, watch some porn, have a fight with a random bloke until something else happens).

2 Aussie animations I know are:

The adventures of Bottletop Bill and his best friend Corky

The Koala Brothers

Both of these are again aimed at a preschool/primary audience but are very well produced have good voice characterization and are uniquely Australian in terms of cultural identity.

Across the other side of the Tasman Sea hailing from New Zealand however is the brilliant Bro'Town, decadent, disingenuous and lots of fun check it out on Youtube :D

Thanks Redmerkurii.
I`m signed in, so doesn`t ask me for age...but in US wouldn`t think there`d be any problem with 'bugger' or 'bloody' :)
Damn these are short!

Just now see your post on the Aussie animation.
Loving these views into other English speaking cultures looking through unusual windows.

Not adult or twisted, but there were all of the stop motion series by Gerry Anderson.

Most of the ones I loved have already been noted above.

However, Postman Pat and Thomas the Tank Engine were excellent oldies.
(And The Magic Roundabout was a French-English cartoon).


If stop-motion animations are allowed (and some bloke on the 'net has said that a ''cartoon can simply be a drawing, normally for entertainment; animation is a process that is used to produce the appearance of movement. You can apply animation to cartoon''...), then:

Children's TV in general seems to have changed considerably, cant quite see the day when they make cheapo 'best of'' TV programs of wannabe TV presenters reminiscing about Peppa Pig.

BTW If animation is okay, dont forget the Clangers. They were even in Dr Who.
To laymen, software development is something akin to wizardry. Neither time, nor effort are involved. If software is missing features they want, or has bugs, it is solely because someone has been too lazy to wave their magic wand.
