Think of a show differently? Please supply an explanation with your answer if you can.

EDIT: Alright, well since i totally ****ed up the question, i 'll say it differently.

If you hear of a show, that sounds like it'd be good, and then you later find out it's an animation, would that change your initial stance on how good you thought it would be?
For instance, i know of a lot of people who think that animations such as Family Guy, The Simpsons, etc, are not funny because they're animation as it reminds them of childish things, like cartoons. Does the idea of animation have the same effect on you?

Only time a show alters my mindset is if I am under the influence of booze.
If it were socially acceptable, I would drape myself in velvet.

Sometimes.
Most hand drawn, not really, since animators can draw many images within a very short time frame. One of my best friends goes to Sheridan (a college where many Disney animators graduate from), and she can draw faster than I can process.

Clay mations and stop motion, I have a lot of respect for. An example is the movie Fantastic Mr. Fox. I have see some random behind-the-scenes videos on youtube, and the process to make that movie is... Unbelievable. The patience some people have, really...

A clearer question would be excellent. Otherwise I'm sticking with Bust a move.

Yeah. I could never really get behind King of the Hill because I really don't like the way the characters look. If that's what you're asking, not sure.

Most of the animations I'm used to would be ridiculous if they were in real life.

The Simpsons, Family Guy, Metalocalypse, Spongebob, Pokemon. Imagine them. Played by real actors.







So it really depends for me.

I don't know, but if ever there is an option of "bust a move" on a UG poll, you might as well call it a day, because that is gonna get a 100% vote.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

haha, shame on my poor attention seeking mind for giving you all the choice

Anyways, i've re-edited the question at the top for those of you who were confused.

My mate & i are finally putting our ideas together to make an animation, and i was just interested in your opinions, since UG's general age group & humour could connect well with ours.

I've never heard of anyone not liking a show just because it's animated.
#14
I love animation. Cartoons, anime, stop-motion, paint-on-glass, whatever. It's a medium that can be used to tell stories that would be difficult to execute in live-action.
#16
Shows that would suck:

Real people Metalocalypse

Real people Simpsons

Real kids South Park (oh, GOD that would suck)

And also, a cartoon LOST would fail.

If I hear a show is good, and it turns out to be animated, then I'll just go in watching it like I normally would.


I mean, I of course I might judge it differently, because I'm not critiquing things that actors would do, I'm critiquing animation, color, voice acting etc.

Judging Futurama and judging The Wire are two completely different things.

Why bother apologizing, those on dial up won't see that for another 10 years, and by then they'll forget what the hell they clicked on anyway!

Animation is certainly influential on the audience's perception, but I have a hard time envisioning a situation in which I'd hear about a show and only later find out it was animated. I don't think a show being animated would detract from the appeal provided the material was good/funny/compelling in some way.

In general, shows like the simpsons, family guy/cleveland show, king of the hill, metalocalypse aren't funny for me not because of the animation but for the content.

I watched space ghost coast to coast for a long time and it was a bit unlike other animated shows. The animation in that instance contributed to the humor in the same way that dan hertzfeldt's animations are funny for their minimalism.
