Anyone notice how horribly, horribly lame nearly ALL cartoons, video games and movies aimed towards girls are?

Why is that? What is it about girls that make directors feel the need to pour nothing but bullshit into a project?

I mean, just look at it:

Guys have:





While girls have:




Yes, I'm well aware that there have been good shows aimed towards girls, such as:



and



but the fact of the matter is that these shows are few and far between, and for every good girl's cartoon we get at least 30 shitty ones.

Why is this? Is it due to the lack of female directors and animators in the industry? (And yes, I've worked in the industry for two years, and there is a huge difference in the male/female ratio in animation and design)
Is it due to some still present form of chauvenism?
Is it because girls watch less cartoons than guys because girls are less likely to become shut in nerds that download gigabytes of cartoons when they're 21?
Some other reason?

Discuss.

I think females are generally less interested in cartoons than males. Got something to do with our ancestory, males are more likely to spend time in soltitude, while females are more likely to spend time in company with others. since watching/reading cartoons is mostly a solitary thing... .

Powerpuff Girls and The Wild Thornberrys was awesome.

EDIT: There was one Wild Thornberrys episode in particular that creeped me out as a kid. It was the one where Eliza got lost in the jungle at night and there was some mythical creature involved in the plot.

Or perhaps it's because you're not a girl...?

Not really, I'll enjoy any show as long as it's well written; I really loved As Told By Ginger, heck, I even enjoyed Sailor Moon as a little kid. My sister enjoyed watching all of those shows, but often felt left out when me and my brothers went all testosterone over shows like DBZ or Beast Wars.
She is also the one amongst us kids that watches the least TV, because there are very few shows that she finds interesting, and the same goes for movies or video games. I don't think it's because she's less interested in those types of things (she friggin LOVES Kindom Hearts and Final Fantasy), I think it's just because there are very few things that are aimed towards girls and are GOOD.

It's because Carmel banned all the girl cartoons. Warner Bros. won't **** with Carmel.

What we lack in good cartoons for girls they make up for in lack of good TV shows for guys.

Quote by denfilade
Then compare that to all those damn cheesy TV dramas and droning soapies (which every country seems to have their own of) which grab much more attention than guy's TV shows.

eh, those are more like shows for stupid people rather than women. Both stupid men AND women watch them primarily.

I submit that How I met Your Mother lives purely off of Neil Patrick Harris, otherwise known as "The Most Awesome Man on the Planet".

I'd totally go gay for him.

not that he'd ever want to have me

King of Queens is one of the best sitcoms ever, and According to Jim is decent too.


I do agree that How I Met Your Mother is awesome, though.

Yeah, Barney pretty much owns the show.

And Marshall. They are the best parts of that show.

the best shows are still those that are not primarily aimed at one sex.

Quote by SG_dave
I used to watch Wild Thornberry's and Ginger.

Maybe it's because most directors are male and are answering to male bosses and CEO's so none of them can relate.

I think this is the biggest problem.

What about girls generally stop wathcing cartoons when they're 10, and guys watch them till they're 30.

I can name a whole list of guys that still watch cartoons, and like 1 girl

Still, most guys will still be watching cartoons in their 20s-30s and most girls wont.

The Wild Thornberrys was a girl's cartoon?

Is that because girls like animals?


no, they are sexually attracted to monkeys.

Yeah, shows that were specifically aimed at girls were usually pretty lame with a few exceptions. If you look back though, more effort was put into the shows aimed at males. Unless it was Japanese. Those fellas are ****ing serious about their cartoons


That being said, as a kid, you did NOT love DBZ as much as me. Trust me.

Oh and question..was Hamtaro a girl show? Cause shit that show was awesome.
