So, with how fast the years seem to be going by here, March can't be THAT far away. The best we can hope for is that Tweek gets ONE line at least ;^_^
I remember when I saw him in Imaginationland pt.1 I was all ":D" at first. But then when he had no lines (not even a damn twitch!), I was all "D:". What a tease
Gnomes is still an awesome episode *is still trying to get the Tweek plushie advertised on the 2001 rerun of it, but it's so expensive*.
It's funny that Clyde got some big moments in the past season, considering the fact that he doesn't really have a strong personality and that he's basically been used as a sideliner for scenes and moments since the early days (when they gave Craig a bigger role though, he partly took Clyde's job of being used as "someone from the class other than Wendy or Pip that does and says something"). Maybe that could've been it, though. Who knows.
I like the minor classmates, but Tweek, even in all his spazziness, has quite more personality than characters like Jimmy, IMO.
Hopefully even one Tweek line (or even a twitch/spaz bit) isn't too much to hope for. But we'll see.
I agree with Cerisa_Roz regarding Imaginationland Part I. Matt and Trey need to stop playing games with our hearts.
"I've got a rubber band" seems like heaven compared with what he gets to say now. It's like he's suddenly caught Dog Poo's muteness!

I love Robberts fics, but he spent about 60,000 words just trashing Tweek, for no good reason, in three of his fics. He spent whole fics writing up on how the boys should love outsiders like BUTTERS but when it comes to Tweek, oh nooooo, he's too different, he deserves to have no friends and be pushed down cliffs and have his head caved in by Kenny, not like poor butters! He even made him start attacking other kids (soemthing he'd never do in the show). Rob had WAY too much of a Butter's fettish! Also he was obsessed with "being original."
WTF!? He wrote more fics about how they loved each other than anything?!Rob also loathed Stan and Wendy
I thought he was against women-on-man sexism, until he comes out with that "mysogeny" fic and all the sequels with Kyle and Bebe. So inconsistent, almost like...
It wasn't that sudden, he was getting a lot of side-parts since Gnombs, more than any kid except Pip or Btters. But the inconsistency is the wierdest thing i've noticed about M and T.Piptweek wrote:You know, I've never seen a character treated with more inconsistency. He came almost out of nowhere to become a main character in season 6.

WTF happened to him and Pip? Did Professor Chaos cut their tongues out?!

MATT AND TREY HAVE OFFICIALLY OFFENDED ME by tempting me that way...

can't even find it in shops even if i had the cash
Pip was like the Butters before Butters that noone liked.
Problem is, Tweek has nothing to seperate himself from the others besides his twitching, paranoia and he seems to care deeply for his friends....well not Cartman. (Free Hat)
Same with Pip. He's English, but brought nothing to the table that wasn't there, Butters was the better pick because of his naive nature and his positive thinking for every situation, which is what sets him up for the negative actions of any situation.
Don't say the others have their parents, coz Tweek's dad was genius (mr. metaphore!) and his mum wasn't any more annoying than the other mums.
Pip had positive thinking too... but in a diffwerent way. He just seemed to blatantly ignore the fact other kids didn't like him, even hated him! His upper lip was HUGE and stiff like concrete. We need more of Pip, and could develop him like Butters was developed (during season six) with that latent agression that's far more violent than Butters.
Just look at fanfics with them both in for long periods of time, and it's apparent what can be done. I'd advise you to read rob's, but as they're in the ether now, read Stovepipe Jam's (not as bad as you'd think) and you'll see how the kids personalities COULD have been (and still could be) developed.
Anyways, to keep the ball rolling, I'd say Stan/Kyle/Kenny care about their friends (to an extent, Eric), Manbearpig can show how the 4 worked together to survive (minus Eric, though Kyle helped him from drowning, Kenny helped carry him..and Stan assisted Kenny when the water was rising as opposed to letting him die).
Tweek's paranoia is open, Stan and Kyle have things in their character that can evolve to paranoia (to an extent). Kyle is very self conscious and like in "The List" believed everyone thought he was ugly and was against him. Stan's lies with his heart and emotions, seeing as in "follow that egg" he was thinking Kyle was out to steal Wendy from him (Could be noted that anyone else in Kyle's spot would've had the same reaction).
Kenny's paranoia lies towards his death, this is seen in "Tweek VS Craig".
Pip's character however, is weaker. He seems like the typical "Gentleman caller" you read in book from Sophmore year high school. There's not much done with him, perhaps if he showed more of his violent edge like in "Dodgeball" we'd have something to go by (He can pick fights with other students and be a bully for respect. Respect from fear)
Would I have any objections to either Pip or Tweek being developed? Nope, Clyde had spotlight time in 11, maybe Craig and Tweek and Pip get some in 12? All depends on # of episodes really.

I doubt we even "see" their faces on 12, maybe Tweek here & there, definitely not Pip. Tweek's nerves is the only thing that makes him stand out but other than that, he's very, VERY boring. I think Timmy's disability and head wobbling had outshined and soon put an end to Tweek's twitching if any of you haven't noticed.
Pip...um......uhhhhh...yea my point exactly. His soul passed away years ago and it's never coming back, face it. I still feel for him though, he went out extremely early, didn't even get to eat a crumpet or have a cup of tea. Damn...
Clyde's the man, he's really developed into a great character for the show! I could easily see him as being 1 of the main boys. I wouldn't even be surprised if he owns half of this year's run.
even Pip got his own episode even if it generally was a failure to the fans
Making Tweek's very own episode highly unlikely; even Butters own wasn't that well recieved.
That's what gives him such potential. He's pretty much a blank slate
While I wholy agree, there are so many other undeveloped kids who need some work done, it could apply to anyone (particuarly Clyde and Pip who's MIA so doesn't count).
His parents are pretty interesting charactars and a lot could be done with his spazziness/paranoia; what was Kyle except an intelligent Jewish boy when the show started? Or Stan but a more accademic, non-jewish Kyle with a GF? Or even Cartman but a biggot? It's with episodes that development comes and if you don't think Tweek has a lot of potential you don't know the comedy gold that can come from paranoia, when an ass like Cartman is added. What would Butters be without Cartman's pranks?
Clyde's only developed because he's been shown; if tweek were on screen as much as Clyde, as much could be done with him. It's really all up to Matt and Trey and where their mind takes them really.CartmansCuzzin wrote:Clyde's the man, he's really developed into a great character for the show!
It really all depends on weather Matt and Trey want to develop Jimmy and Clyde more or go back to the earlier kids. I love Clyde (not so into the kids) but If they want to devote half the season to developing them, they may loose any opportunity to revive Tweek. Pip is as dead as the British Empire, sadly.
