Just a heads-up for those who haven't heard...

The newest Nicktoon Pig Goat Banana Cricket is making its official a week from now. Despite a lack of on-air promotion—at least I think, since I haven't watched Nick in a while due to lack of new episodes—Nickelodeon themselves are pretty excited for it. Not just because a second season is already ordered, but because they're giving us two chances to catch a sneak peek before the official premiere.

The schedule is as follows, all times EST:

July 16, 9:30 PM on Nickelodeon
Right after Kids' Choice Sports 2015, you can watch the show's pilot episode (no, it's not the original short; this is a never-before-seen 22-minute story), "Pig Goat Banana Cricket High Five!" Depending on how your DVR works, you might have to record the whole awards show prior to it if you not there to watch the sneak peek as it airs.

July 17, 3:30 PM on Nicktoons
Nick's digital channel dedicated to animation is giving you an encore of "Pig Goat Banana Cricket High Five!"

July 18, 10:30 on Nickelodeon
Pig Goat Banana Cricket officially premieres with an all-new episode entitled "Fudge-pocalypse".

I know what some of you are thinking. "Why should I watch this when it's a new show on Nickelodeon? Those are hardly ever good anymore!" First off, if this is how you think, I probably don't care for you as a person. Second, I've got a few reasons for you to give it a shot:
  1. The amazingly unique animation style. With so many toons these days trying to be like Adventure Time with ridiculously simple designs that a mere 5-year-old can draw, Pig Goat Banana Cricket is bold enough to give its characters and backgrounds something that most other shows won't bother with: Detail, detail, and more detail! The show was designed and co-created by the amazing illustrator Dave Cooper, who's known for making beautifully complex art, and he brings that same wonderful complexity to this show. If I could describe it somehow, it's like the style of old Klasky-Csupo Nicktoons cranked up to 11. (oddly enough, one of the creators' favorite 90's Nicktoons was Aaahh!!! Real Monsters)
  2. The unique writing format. Usually, comedy-centric cartoons are broken up into 11-minute stories, sometimes even having pairs of those stories constantly randomized in scheduling (anyone who watches Cartoon Network these days can tell you that). Pig Goat Banana Cricket, on the other hand, does what's considered the unthinkable for comedy shows and comes up with full 22-minute stories. From what I've heard, the four titular characters all have their own stories in each episode that end up intertwining in some crazy way, so the episodes have to be much longer than 11 minutes just to fit it all in. Think of The Simpsons episode "22 Short Films About Springfield," have it focused on at least 4 characters, make an entire series out of it, and that's pretty much what this show is. Sounds pretty cool, huh?
  3. The talent behind it. Not only is the show created by Dave Cooper and Johnny Ryan, two amazing illustrators who actually have a long-time connection with Nickelodeon (making comics for almost every single issue of Nick Magazine), but the other artists on staff are amazing too: Nico Colaleo, Jennifer Wood, Brianne Drouhard, Miguel Gonzalez, Crista Castro, Lucy Tanashian-Gentry, and many others. Check out their work on Tumblr if you get the chance.
  4. Nick animation in general needs more attention these days. Say what you want about the network's methods, but the people at the Nickelodeon Animation Studio are a talented bunch. Contrary to popular belief, they're still capable of producing great shows, such as TMNT, Harvey Beaks, and hopefully this show. Sadly, compared to other popular animated programming nowadays like Gravity Falls or Steven Universe, the work of these artists often go unnoticed or unloved. Hopefully, that can change soon. Animation ain't easy, so anyone who works on it for a living deserves respect.

  • Mood: Optimism
UPDATE: I'm feeling a little better. I think I'll just be taking a break so I can get things in order. My apologies to those who wanted to see another Obscuri-Jam entry, but I don't think I have it in me to finish one. Everything else I mentioned I'll get to, but it'll take a while.

You're all probably wondering when I'm getting to those overdue commissions. And more SplatDown. And that Omniverse Pageant picture. And maybe one other Obscuri-Jam entry. To be honest... I don't know when I'm getting to them anymore. I mean, I'm sure I'll finish them one day because I hate to disappoint you guys, but the problem is... I just don't have any drive left.

Yeah, I've made journal entries about being depressed plenty of times before and I'm sure some of you are sick of hearing about it, but I don't know what else to do during times like this than to share my problems with my friends.

I seem perky most of the time, but I've actually been having a rough time for the past week. I've gotten a harsh reality check on how unorganized I am and how little I know about the world around me. I'm so behind on stuff I promised and so confused about what's right and wrong these days, I just can't seem to move forward. That and my sleep schedule has been pathetic, complete with some of the weirdest and most exhausting dreams I've had in a while. I really feel like my mind is broken and getting worse.

You can leave some kind words if you want, but I don't know if it'll help. The lessons I learn from these times never seem to stick with me and I always seem to sink back into depression. Maybe I'll feel a little better after a nap... even though I've needed a lot lately.

RULES:

-In terms of fan art, I can only draw characters and things from shows and franchises I'm familiar with. However, I will occasionally do art of something that's nearly a complete mystery to me, if it's not too complicated and/or I like the challenge. If you're not sure what franchises I know about, just ask me about the one you have in mind.

-NO bashing of any franchise. (unless I hate it too)

-I won't always do OC art, but don't be afraid to ask and don't be disappointed if I refuse. I'll do my own OCs without question though.

-There are a number of fetishes I won't do, including but not limited to: Expansion (breasts, butts, and muscles are exceptions if they're not too obscenely big), inflation, vore, bubbles, and most furries (as an example, Kitty Katswell is fine). I'm currently on the fence about Yaoi and Yuri stuff.

-NO VISIBLE NUDITY... Unless you're fine with it being only on my blog. (bare butts and boobs are fine, though)

-NO BLOOD OR GORE, unless it's very light.

Just remember that you all get only one commission at a time each. You also have to pay before I start on it, but inform me when you have payed. The PayPal account to pay is rh_ledbetter@yahoo.com, but remember that my real email address is tlrledbetter@gmail.com if you want to talk to me.

Oh, THAT kind of pulled. Like I said before, Nick isn't the best when it comes to scheduling.

You know what bugs me? Nickelodeon seems to want to improve, but every time they try, everybody shuns them without giving them a chance. And all the people who complain about wanting Nick to change (COUGHRiseAndFallCOUGH) can't even be bothered to tell them they want change, and when things don't change, they whine endlessly.

Did anything like this in particular happen recently?

I don't know, but Nick's ratings seem to suggest people are giving up on them.

I also have this fear that The Loud House will wind up being really good, but nobody will give it a chance because of their anti-Nick bias, and it and the network will wind up rotting away with everybody kicking them while they're down.

What a sad world we live in.

Did the current Nicktoons' move to Saturday mornings not help much?

You also have to remember that Nick doesn't promote their animated shows on-air all that well and that some cable providers dropped Viacom's channels, so that can mess with ratings quite a bit. Also, if you ever feel bad for Nick's ratings, just look at the ratings Discovery Family gets (as well as the ever-popular MLP). They're even lower and make Nick look good by comparison.

Pig Goat Banana Cricket was pretty insane. In a good way.

As for today's Harvey, Fee's hairstyles were so cute!
