South Park Ain't What It Used To Be Megathread

Postby Haris » Thu Mar 12, 2009 3:43 pm

Southpark is my favorite cartoon series...
But you are using too many computer effects... Don't you see you are destroying southpark???
Look at the episodes on the first seasons... When you used paper the episodes were soooo much better...
Don't damage southpark anymore...
Go back to paper! Or at least stop putting so many effects...
You are simply losing touch with it.....

They've used computers since episode 102.
And I really don't understand how "computer effects"-y you mean. There's been stuff that's looked a little too computer generated since Fat Camp at least, and it hasn't bothered me too much.

Well, Mickey suddenly growing huge is one. I can't think of a time I've seen that on the show before except when people are running towards the camera, heh (and that happens all the time).

Dude, you're being like that bomber guy who was trying to destroy technology. Stop. The effects are fine, if anything they enhances the show. Now, I know I sound like a Graphics Whore (Which I'm not, I still play 64 actually), but the effects are fine man. If you don't like it then watch the old episodes again.

Well, yeah. Technically, they're all computer effects. But there are some that look particularly computery and stick out in my mind. Like when the turntable flipped around with Kenny on it in Fat Camp, when Towelie MkII turned around on a turntable in Towelie, (that seemed to be a sticky area with them in the middle seasons) and Kenny's red lockbox in A Ladder to Heaven.

...I was just trying to think how they did the growing transitions in Mecha Striesand. I may have to watch that later when I have more time and see.

Good idea! We have to tell Matt and Trey to go back to making it 100% construction Paper cut out, I mean it would take them about 2 months or so to come out with every new episode, but yea! Great idea! Use construction paper and make the episodes make your eyes want to barf instead of having them looking good and clean. Very logical indeed.


I'm seriously getting sick of all these "Go back to the way it was in the first four seasons" bullcrap.

I know but it's only been one day since season 13 aired and 3 threads have been made saying the same stupid sh*t. That's just something that gets on my nerves, how people can be so f*cking ignorant and arrogant.

Yep. Why do you think I think about killing myself every day? You know how many times I've lost complete faith in Humanity? Too many to bother counting. Just try to suppress it man, thats all I can say...

But seriously, I feel like I'm in that movie Idiocracy. GLaD to find someone who kinda feels how I do.

Am I alone in thinking that the newer animation has benefited these past four or so seasons? I really enjoy the improved animation. It adds to that popcorn style style the show has pursued. Sure, it isn't as crude, but maybe it's actually nice to enjoy what you're looking at.

With all honesty here, I like the crappy animation in Damien. It made it a bit more funny. I don't mind the new style, though, some places are nicer than without, and it makes transitions smoother.

When southpark began it totally had it's own magic.. And this is something that came out of the paper too..
The problem with every cartoon show nowadays is that everyone is starting to make anything in computers and simply spoil what the original show was.
I don't care about blurring my eyes sometimes, but that is what made me love that show and it saddens me that every season from now on will be more computerized.
I'm not against technology or anything like that.. I just love something when it 's original..
And it wouldn't take them 2-3 months to create a show. They have a crew to support them...
And even if that was the case I would love to have fewer episodes but episodes made with the same passion they were in the beginning...

I bet you $100 that they used computer digital effects on the first four seasons. Only the first was 90% paper.

The first episode was made out of paper, everything else is made from the computer.
