Best Children's Cartoon of past 10 years
The style was fantastic.
Usually when something is a "throwback" or "retro" it misses the point of the aesthetic of the era it is throwing back to.
It was a beautifully dirty looking cartoon (By dirty I mean dirty, not sexual or anything) but to look so intentionally is a brilliant choice... brilliantly executed.
Sometimes surreal, sometimes expressionistic, it's a cartoon that uses it's medium to its potential. The animation itself becomes part of the overall look of the show.
Obviously intended to recall the style of Shool House Rock Animation, Robot Jones is still sorely missed.
Not being a kid anymore, I wasn't an avid watcher of Saturday morning Cartoons, but I found this one irresistible. Sorry to see that it has gone.
