Kelly?
Kelly deserved so much better than the show gave her
Tumblr media
She’s such a sweet girl and gets way more fleshed out after the show dumps Tad(?). Star Vs does the “Cute Girl/Woman who fights” character type a lot, and it works every time they know what they’re good at
Her character design is cute, and I like how she starts out as one of Star’s friends before she meets Marco. It gives her a chance to be more than a potential love interest…yet
Tumblr media Tumblr media
I’m conflicted about this cause…I love Kelly and Marco together. Their relationship is light and fun, and both are experiencing difficult breakups when they start bonding. Kellco is my 2nd fav Marco ship! It’s a good one!
Tumblr media
But when you remember Starco was apparently endgame…why tease a ship so close to the end? Why pair both people (Star and Marco) with LOs that they’re happy with (Tom and Kelly), only to break them up?? Especially off screen with Kelly, without a real explanation???
I love that Kelly got more screen time. But if it was going to end like this, why invest us in the first place? Either keep her with Marco, or establish they’re only friends who hang out a lot. And figure out a way to include her without completely writing her off for a bad series finale

disney+ adding star vs the forces of evil and gravity falls to their pride collection feels like such a slap in the face because if how much they were censored and told they couldn't add lgbtq+ characters

Insider is creating a database to track queer representation in children's cartoons. I searched through it a bit and it's pretty cool. I wished it had some links to sources of confirmation to some of them and I'm not sure exactly how accurate it is, but it seems accurate enough at first glance. You can check it out yourself if you want.

Fuck Disney.
That’s it that’s the post.
Very much fuck disney.
They canceled The Owl House.
They hardly advertised Amphibia and did nothing to stop the True Colors leaks.
They wouldn’t allow Alex Hirsch to put queer characters in Gravity Falls until the last episode, and even then it was speculative.
They wouldn’t let Daron Nefcy give queer characters speaking lines in SVTFOE unless it was their last appearance, and even then they were side characters - one of them had like three words as lines.
And still, they put The Owl House in their pride section, they put Amphibia in their pride section, they put Gravity Falls and SVTFOE in their “pride” section because acknowledging our existence is “being an ally”. Yes, it really is being a good ally when you don’t even put a non-binary character’s proper pronouns in the subtitles. It really is being a good ally when you don’t even know the ship name of the most progressive queer ship in the history of disney. It really is being a good ally when you put three colors in a heart and proclaim that “representation”. 
It isn’t.
Fuck disney. Put that in your tags. Fuck disney.

They Will Never be Another Cartoon Like... Over The Garden Wall
LOver The Garden Wall is a cartoon masterpiece and I don’t say that often. Despite being only 10 11 minute episodes long series, it sucessfully tell it story from beginning to the end. The show breaks the cartoon trope that I don’t believe that they’ll never be another cartoon that mimics the masterpiece. 
Tumblr media
Autumn 
Usually, cartoons are bright, colorful, and have a hyperactive environment,
 Like the The Amazing World of Gumball 
Tumblr media
The Ghost and Molly McGree
Tumblr media
But for The Over Garden Wall, it’s quiet, not a trace of neon color, and the main colors you see are brown, red, orange, and other autumn colors. 
Tumblr media
Sometimes making you feel eerie of the world. Although there’s no sign of danger, but it doesn’t feel quite right.   
Tumblr media
It isn’t just the environment that is quiet, it’s also the music. Instead of being poppy, energetic, and being catchy, the soundtrack is folkier. 
Such as Potatus Et Molassus, Prelude, Foward, Oneiro, and Come Wayard Souls 
Tumblr media
Then look at cartoon openings
Star vs The Forces of Evil, 
Tumblr media
Steven Universe, 
Tumblr media
Gravity Falls 
Tumblr media
and every other cartoon show openings, have the protagonist doing wacky things with hyperactive music playing
But for Over the Garden Wall, it’s slow and calm and doesn’t show you even you the main characters but shows what will the characters encounter in their journey with very calming music. 
Tumblr media
Unlike any cartoon that’s hyperactive, it’s more calming than the rest which is such refreshing to see especially it’s a kid cartoon. 
Into the Unkown
The selling point of the show is the unknown. The protagonist of the place is set in the mysterious land without a clue of how and why they got in the first place, but their one goal is to find their way by pressing forward to the unknown. The world of the OTGW is built-in fantasy but doesn’t have witches, amphibians, and humanoid gems, but more on folktale tales such as
Pottsfield Harvest Festival.
Tumblr media
Adelaide the “Good” Witch
Tumblr media
The Ringing of the Bell
Tumblr media
Making each adventure feel like it’s came right out of brothers grimm fairy tale. Each having it’s own unique story, own setting, and be unfamiliar to one another. So much wonder and mystery is what makes the show so interesting. 
The Pilgrims 
To make it the journey more enuring are the characters. The protagonists, Wirt and Greg, seem to be one note with Wirt being the more mature but timid and obedient, and Greg being the happy go lucky and naive kid. 
Tumblr media
However, they grow as the progress through the woods. Having them have chemistry, bond, falling out, and reconcile. Making them have a perfect dynamtic. 
Tumblr media
What I also enjoy is that theirs more depth into their character, making them more believable. In chapter 9: “Into the Unknown”, Wirt want to take a girl out to a date, but a womanizer will ask her out. Instead of going the hated dork asking the popular girl in school, it’s actually all in Wirt’s head, being paranoid.
People actually likes him, especially Sarah
Tumblr media
and Jason Funderburker is more of a dweeb than Wirt. 
Tumblr media
It just Wirt overthinking about it, making him more a believable protagonist. 
Their story of two brothers wandering into the unknown to find their way home, perfecly encapsulate to a fairy tale. 
Influences and References 
What makes this cartoon so different from other cartoons is its references and influence. Most cartoons will reference movies and animes 
Such as Amphibia reference Jojo 
Tumblr media
The Owl House reference Dragon Ball Z 
Tumblr media
But with the Over The Garden Wall, their references are much older that not many have heard 
Such as the school children are based on characters of Beatrix Potter
Tumblr media Tumblr media
People were actually afraid of the nightly air for it may contain poison before the plague was explained in the 1700s. 
Tumblr media Tumblr media
Characters from “Babes from the Woods” are references to 1930s to 1940s cartoon characters. 
Tumblr media Tumblr media
While it’s a minor praise to the show, but you don’t see that a lot of cartoons making references to older cartoons. 
Beware the Beast 
The antagonist of the series, The Beast feels different than your standard cartoon villain. Instead of him taking over the world or bringing chaos, he plays more in deceiving to get what he wants by manipulating. 
Tumblr media
He isn’t even that powerful, but use words instead of action such as he manipulated the Woodsmen by telling him that his daughter soul is in the lantern and the only way to have her stay alive by chopping edlewood tree and grinding them to oil, which is made out of children that turns into trees.
Tumblr media
His design is simple but very terrifying for blending in the shadows. 
Tumblr media
Reminds me a lot of the wendigo or Herne the Hunter
Tumblr media
Then when the light shines on him, his true appearance is horrific for his body is made out of edlewood with twisted faces and holes covering his entire body. 
Tumblr media
What I truly love about it is how he was defeated. Instead of a big epic battle, good vs evil like every cartoon has done, they instead have Wirt didn’t fall for the Beast words and his threats, he even revealed his soul was actually in the lantern. 
Tumblr media
Wirt gave the lantern back to the Woodsman for he has his own business to deal with. Making the Woodsman realize that his daughter wasn’t in the lantern and blows out the lantern, ending his terror forever. 
Tumblr media
It’s clever how they’ve defeated the antagonist. 
Conclusion
Over The Garden Wall is the greatest achievement in western animation history. Being only 10 episodes, but it was able to tells a very satisfying story. It didn’t need multiple seasons to tell its story, no sequels, no spinoff shows or a movie, but just a simple and short story. It is filled with childlike wonder with horrific moments, mature themes, and feel melancholy. Truly a masterpiece that can never be mimic.

no cause disney’s “pride collection” on their streaming site enrages me. it’s not pride if the queer character is a background character(s). its not pride if the queer representation is based on stereotypes. it’s not pride if the queer content is censored because it was at risk of disney canceling the show if they even hinted a bit too much that the character(s) was gay. it’s not pride if disney is cancelling the making of a show because of the queer main character(s).
