    So someone found an article that indirectly pertains to the ben 10 reboot.

    So what i"m getting from this is kids dont like cartoons with story arcs like ben 10 or avatar. This is totally ridiculous and totally untrue. This is just a stupid reason for the networks to be lazy and air episodes out of order. What do you guys think?



  • @Omni-Triforcer Just going to copy and paste this comment that I made here from the Ben 10 Forums site.

    Agree. It's BS yet that seems to be the mindset that networks such as Cartoon Network seem to follow now. Comedy and modern trends and memes over actual story, quality, and creativity. Making comedy shows is fine to do but at the same time kids should also experience strong and compelling stories and some very creative ideas and all that stuff. Kids should experience and witness what it truly takes to make great shows. To see various examples of how great stories, characters, settings, ideas, styles, etc can be executed and implemented into entertainment media. These are kids that we're talking about here. Young individuals with young and developing minds. Kids that are constantly learning more about pretty much everything they see in their lives. This is one of the major reasons as to why I get so ticked off about the excuse by writers and network companies of " oh, we're making shows for kids so we don't need to put a lot of effort into our shows because kids don't know any better." Again, comedy shows are fine to make but that shouldn't be the only thing that kids should be exposed to on networks such as Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network. At least in my opinion, kids shouldn't be exposed to shows such as Teen Titans Go!, Uncle Grandpa, and the PPG reboot. They should see and experience shows such as Courage the Cowardly Dog, the original Ben 10, Ed Edd n Eddy, Samurai Jack, Gravity Falls, Avatar The Last Airbender, etc and networks should put a lot more of a focus on making shows that is on the very level of quality or higher as the very shows that I listed. This is our future generation here. Networks should also help our future generation develop and grow throughout their early years so that they can become better individuals later on in their lives instead of just exploiting them just to garner some more cash off of them and their parents.
