It’s time we get a little more positivity on the Uncle Grandpa tag and I’m here to provide said positivity with this defense of everyone’s uncle and grandfather.
Weird & obnoxious
It’s a cartoon of course it’s weird! We’ve all gotten use to cartoons like Korra and Young Justice that we’ve forgotten what cartoons and animation in general are mainly about: pushing the boundaries of what can’t be accomplished in real life. Sure Korra and YG do that but they don’t go far enough. We need shows like Uncle Grandpa to remind us that not all cartoons need to be serious or make sense in order to be good. And when they do start drifting into the realm of weirdness that’s fine.
That means they’re doing their job right by being as unrealistic as possible cause that’s what a cartoon is supposed to be. It’s supposed push beyond the realm of realism and just have fun not abiding to the rules of reality and if any show does that right it’s Uncle Grandpa. As for it being obnoxious at least it’s no where close to being up there with Annoying Orange. To quote Uncle G. and Pizza Steve themselves, “Embrace the weird Mr. Gus. Embrace the weird.”
The concept apparently promotes incest
There’s a thing called looking too much into something y’know. Again this is where cartoon logic applies. Yes they say he’s everyone’s uncle and grandfather but does that necessarily mean he’s a product of incest? All he is a fictional entity and you should leave it that. No theories, explanations or whatever other shit you all come up with in your fandoms.
I bet none of you ever came up with those ridiculous theories for Uncle Grandfather from Perfect Hair Tomorrow.
Over-the-top animation & silly
See “Weird & Obnoxious.”
I disagree. Uncle Grandpa is very likable and teaches good lessons to kids. Even he himself has to learn lessons from time to time so he’s not a perfect character and I like that about him. Mr. Gus is also a likable character who has plenty of personality despite almost never smiling. Pizza Steve is totally likable and not a perfect character despite claiming to be. Giant Realistic Flying Tiger has plenty of personality too for a photoshopped tiger stock. So yeah there’s nothing unlikable about these characters as far as I know.
All over the place with itself
See “Over-the-top-animation & silly”
Not a good show for kids
Really? Cause I think a show that teaches you
There’s nothing wrong with having a big stomach
Don’t let power go to your head
Give all your friends the same amount of respect no matter what
Have confidence in yourself and your skills
There’s such a thing as too much fun and when it gets out of hand it could get chaotic
If you make a mistake you gotta find a way to fix it as best as you can
The dark isn’t scary. It’s your imagination that is.
And the recent episode, “Treasure Map” has taught us that being weird is okay (it’s almost like the show’s defending itself). With all these lessons I’d say Uncle Grandpa is great show for kids. That is its target audience after all. Not adults who hate it for dumb reasons.
Aired before Steven Universe or season 2 of Grojband
Yeah let’s hate it because it aired before shows whose productions aren’t even finished or weren’t finished enough to begin airing. Well Steven Universe is airing now and Grojband season 2 is on its way but that’s still no excuse to hate the show or flood the tags with your hate. Hate to burst your bubble SU fans but its not gonna replace Uncle Grandpa nor was it made to do so so you can get that idea out of your head and stop tagging your hate. Grojband fans Neptoon Studios already stated that the amount of Uncle Grandpa hate on the Grojband tag is even more ridiculous than the hate on the show’s own tag. THE CREATORS of the show you love think your hate is uncalled for and shouldn’t be tagged. That should tell you something. Just stop. Season 2 of Grojband will air when it airs. There’s no need to hate on other on shows that air before it.
Well that’s all I gotta say. If you don’t like he show that’s fine. Just keep your hate off the tag.
