Charles Martinet just joined Vine, and it’s already the best thing.

With all the sadness going on in the world, it’s nice to see something that makes you smile. Charles Martinet, voice of most of the Nintendo characters, has just started posting videos on Vine and Instagram, and they are gloriously avant-guarde. Besides this encounter with a juggler, Mario and Luigi have also today debated the pronunciation of the word “banana” and discussed street art and why it reminds them of spaghetti. Also, Wario farting. Because that’s what he does.

Charles Martinet never played a video game in his life and got the job voicing Mario after ad-libbing a routine in which he made a pizza pie. This, combined with the infamous Mario Teaches Typing cutscenes makes me think Martinet is like this all the time when he voice acts. Which is why he is awesome.

Hey Tumblr! I’m Alex Hirsch, creator of the animated TV series Gravity Falls. For ages now I have lurked in anonymity, hiding in the shadows of the internet, watching as you’ve GIF’ed my jokes and shipped my characters and done unspeakable things to my dear Pines Twins. You…you’ve got some issues Tumblr. We’re all worried about you.
Pressing on! I have decided to finally emerge from beyond the fourth wall to share with you that I myself have a shameful secret.  That secret is that despite my success as a cartoon show creator, I can barely hold a pencil. My understanding of the word “anatomy” just means adding abs to everything. I once mistook a kneaded eraser for a piece of gum and chewed on it until someone told me to stop. The point is, without a team of incredible layout artists, background painters, character designers, prop designers, storyboard artists and colorists, Gravity Falls would look like this:

Thats why I’ve created Gravi-Team falls, a place where we will be uploading artwork, cut scenes, and other strange goodies from the amazing crew that brings this show to life. I’m inspired every day by these amazing geniuses, and now I want to pass that inspiration on to you. If you like Gravity Falls, amazing art, and procrastinating, than this is the Tumblr you’ve been Tumbling for! Ladies and Gentlemen…GRAVI-TEAM FALLS!

Welcome to Tumblr, Gravity Falls Production Staff! Somehow we didn’t scar you for life (or if we did, you do a great job of hiding it!)

Not only have I joined the “Preliminary Star vs. the Forces of Evil Anticipation” hype train, I’ve also joined the “Preliminary Star vs. the Forces of Evil Anticipatory Fan Art” hype train. (Creator Daron Nefcy confirmed the release date on Twitter.)

Thanks to ’Squirrel On A Wire’ for the video and ‘Rad Star’ for the post on Tumblr

Basically just the Star vs. The Forces of Evil clip itself (not one small segment from the hour long Gravity Falls panel)

Preliminary opening sequence for Star vs. the Forces of Evil as screened at Disney Television Animation’s three SDCC panels (this footage comes from Matt Chapman’s semi-official video of the Gravity Falls panel). Theme song by Brad Breeck.

*goes into the Star tag*

"IT’S SO OBVIOUSLY A RIPOFF OF ADVENTURE TIME AND STEVEN UNIVERSE"

*leaves the Star tag*

*takes a sip*

are you fucking shitting me

are we going to have this problem every fucking time a new cartoon comes out

this doesn’t even look like AT or SU, like even remotely at all

As The Simpsons taught us, animation is based on plagiarism, and nothing is technically original since nothing exists in a vacuum and everything is at least somewhat inspired by something else either intentionally or not. But “X is a ripoff of Y” is bandied about far too much these days. We’ve literally only seen less than a minute of footage of Star vs. the Forces of Evil and already we’re making sweeping generalizations. Technically, yes, you can compare Star to Steven Universe in the sense of “both are created by a woman” and to Adventure Time as “both are created by CalArts graduates” and to both series as “all three are animated”. But if you try to go deeper than factual generalizations at this point, it makes no sense.

Me: I casually like thing

Tumblr: HERE’S WHY YOU ARE THE WORST PERSON ALIVE FOR SUPPORTING THING

Yeah, pretty much one of the reasons I feel like I don’t belong in the so-called “Tumblr community.”

Disney Television Animation Announces New Pilots, “Haunted Mansion” Special, New Dan Povenmire Deal

On the 59th anniversary of the opening of Disneyland, Disney Television Animation today announced a new television special based on the beloved theme park attraction Haunted Mansion, alongside three new pilots from such luminaries as Jhonen Vasquez and Aaron Springer.

The Haunted Mansion, which opened in Disneyland in 1969, is one of the most famed of Disney’s theme park attractions. Horror artist Gris Grimly is the co-executive producer and art director, with Scott Peterson as co-executive producer and story editor. Writing duties are by Peterson and Joshua Pruett (both of whom are writers on Phineas and Ferb).

Speaking of Phineas and Ferb, the studio has also extended its long-term development deal with its co-creator Dan Povenmire. Arguably Disney TVA’s most successful series, Ferb recently received its ninth Emmy nomination.

In addition, Disney TVA has picked up the short-form series Future-Worm, created by Ryan Quincy of the short-lived IFC animated show Out There, focusing on a boy who befriends a worm from the future after making a time machine out of a lunch box. Three additional series are in the pilot phase: Billy Dilley’s Super Duper Subterranean Summer by Aaron Springer (SpongeBob SquarePants), about two kids who end up spending summer break trapped in the center of the earth with their eccentric classmate; Very Important House from Jhonen Vazquez (Invader Zim) and Jenny Goldberg (Rick and Morty), in which an 11-year-old girl finds herself the caretaker of the universe; and Douglas Furs by Subpop Records art director Jesse LeDoux and Matt Olsen (voice of Bentley the turtle in the Sly Cooper video games), about an unhandy handyman bear who takes it upon himself to solve all the problems in a village of animals.

News was originally reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

instead of spending 17000 dollars on dashcon let’s spend 17000 dollars on a remake of The Producers about the events of DashCon

"You know, it’s absolutely amazing! Under the right circumstances, a conrunner could make more money with a flop then he could with a hit!"

"Yes, you keep saying that, but you don’t say how.

"Well, it’s simply a matter of creative accounting."

"So in order for our scheme to work, we’d have to create a surefire flop!"

"Step 1! We find the worst userbase ever assembled."

"Step 2! We hire the worst staffers in town!"

"Step 3! I raise $17,000!"

"$17,000?!"

"Yes! $8500 for me, $8500 for you. There’s a lotta gullible 12-year-olds out there!"

"Step 4! We hire the worst panelists in town and open in Illinois, and before you can say ‘Step 5…’"

"We close in Illinois, take our $17,000, and go to Rio!”

~We can do it~

Springtime for ballpits and British men with cheekbones…

This is like Bullwinkle/Police Squad/Animaniacs level of bad punnery. Which is what makes it so wonderful. (The punchline is, of course, a video.)
