Respectfully linched from SpaceCaptSteve @:-)
That's great [:)]. I hope the stories in the cartoon series will be interesting and offer at least some moral or inspiring message to the kids these days, just like the 80's Astroboy cartoons did. And I don't mean by whacking a 5 second skit at the end where Ty says "Hey kids, recycle... TO THE EXTREME!" and then some sidekick trips over and everyone laughs. [:)]
I don't watch any childrens cartoons these days obviously, but the ones that I catch seem to be a power ranger kind of formulae story telling, where with each episode there's a new evil character, some stealing/shenaningans/throw away plot ensues, then a big fight at the end, and the credits roll up.. Pokemon etc seems to be like that.
Cartoons are a great way of impressioning the kids, and I can imagine in another 20 years or so, a generation of grown up cartoon viewers would be wanting to hunt down Steve and the Krome people about Ty. Who knows, maybe there'll be an animated CG feature if the cartoon really goes off! [:D] That would be great! I gotta say, I really love Ty's character design - I really think it has a lasting quality to it, very much like Astroboy's design. In 10, 20 years time, it'll never look outdated...
