I really have been doing a lot of "Platinum Awards" lately, so this one may be one of my last ones for a while. (Oh, and while I was out at Target, I found a Dig-Dug shirt for ten bucks!) This award is for "Best Cartoon." This one was a doozie, considering that there are few to none good cartoons out today. I mean, I was looking through, and I saw an ad for this show called "The Problem Solvers" which MAY be the second or first worst cartoon I ever saw. Cartoons were at their best before my time, As I entered in a small, golden age/dark age, considering there were REALLY good cartoons and AWFUL HORRIBLE VOMIT PREVOKING ones. Cartoons turned from good humored to... well, gross. Like, ripping the skin off of someone, or bulging eyeballs, or LOTS AND LOTS OF SPIT! Then, there were those incredible cartoons that popped up like Avatar, The Fairly OddParents, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, etc. And then another dark age, worse than before. Until this. Regular Show. Although some may not find it to be the best show ever, I love it, considering it's wacky cast of characters and incredibly unpredictable plotlines. (Like, in the episode "Just Set up the Chairs," The protagonists, Mordecai and Rigby, are tasked with setting up the chairs for a birthday party, and while on "break" they stumble across a demon possessed arcade machine that unleashes THE DESTROYER OF WORLDS, a giant 8bit devil head that launches fire blasts...) Really, I like it because it reminds me of, me! I find myself to be able to relate to both Mordecai and Rigby. And If you're like me, you will too. So, please, give it a shot. For a good starter episode, "Mordecai and the Rigbys." Trust me.
