It’s 2013. It’s been 2013 for quite a while now. And from upcoming films to comics to television series, we have a lot to look forward to and a lot to discuss in the next 12 months. But before we can completely get into the 2013 groove, we have to reflect on the previous year first. So while this article is several days late, it’s time to share with you all the thoughts and emotions we had on some of bigger events that rocked the worlds of ink-and-paint entertainment back in 2012. Well, the ones that we cared about, anyway. While we have recorded an episode of the ScratchCast for your listening “pleasure”…the audio from the second half was kinda messed up. Wasn’t good at all. And that just gave me more incentive to have a…let’s say transcribed version of it (my thoughts are separate from the “transcribed” version). That said, you can listen to the 20 minutes of the podcast I could salvage and/or click that “Read the rest of this entry” button for a more visual than auditory experience. Also, check out that short blooper reel. It’s fun.

Yeah, I’ll admit it. This episode is extremely late. Like, extremely late. I mean, the cable upfronts took place in late MARCH. And this episode was recorded shortly after. There is absoulety no reason for this episode to be so late, beyond my own laziness. And I apologize for that. But you know what? There’s a bright side! Because this episode being late means we can all sit around and laugh at our reactions to certain bits of news. Who would have though we’d all fall in love with Gravity Falls after giving it the finger? Or that The Legend of Korra would leave all of us in anger about the pacing and the romantic subplot after we constantly praised it? Ah yes, things have changed between then and now. So please; sit back, relax, and enjoy the silly antics of our slightly younger selfs.

This episode was recorded on Thursday night, and we had some…problems with it. Not just the occasional wind tunnel sounds that you’ll hear while listening, or the bizarre echo-filled closing. No, I’m talking about the 30 minutes it took for all of us to get our act together and start the episode. There was arguing and random laughter, Jon got pissed at everyone, and I screamed in anger for the first time in months. Not a good start to an end-of-the-year episode, and our first one at that. But while hastily editing this episode for tonight, I found myself feeling like this 2-hour long episode was very enjoyable. Hell, not only did we have TomatoSurprise, ToonFaithful, and Sketch, but also Mr. Wednesday from Animation Revelation and Thomas Blalock from Twitter. And dammit, despite the rough start, we had some fun doing this episode and every single one in the past: especially the “lost” episode nine of Notaku Diaries.

Thanks for listening to all the insane and stupid crap we put out this year, from Notaku Diaries, to Not Another Old Cartoon Podcast, to those weird WRSP thingys, and finally the ScratchCast. Here’s hoping that we continue to act like fools in the future…as well as improve our quality. See y’all next year!

Le gasp, an update! On The (Real) Scratch Pad? What the hell is this bullshit!? Horrible jokes aside, since the entire Scratch Pad crew is pretty aware that we’ve done jack-all on this site for a month, we decided to come together and share our thoughts on some of the happenings that occurred at SDCC last weekend. We don’t discuss everything, obviously, but we do talk about all the Marvel stuff and The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra. There is also some discussion of the Green Lantern film. Finally, we all decided to save the DCnU stuff for later, so keep an eye out for that. As usual, I’m silent as hell while Tetris, Don, and Sketch do all the talking. Oh, and Dragonpiece is in this as well.

In this episode Dragonpiece and I get you caught up on the latest animation news and then we head right into a discussion of Planet Sheen. If we learned anything from recording this episode it’s, we are better off with at least three critics and Dragonpiece and I need to do a better job checking our facts and by that I mean we need to check our facts period (you can see our mistakes after the jump). As always we hope you enjoy this week’s episode of Not Another Old Cartoon Podcast

I contemplated making a top 5 or top 10 for the year but I felt like I wouldn’t be giving some shows their due if I just did that so rather than make a list I decided to give a micro-review and some personal thoughts on the cartoons of 2010 that I was able to catch. For the record, I did not include any direct sequels such as Ben 10: Ultimate Alien or Total Drama: World Tour. Follow the jump to see what I thought about the new cartoons that premiered in 2010.

I don’t need to tell you that Cartoon Network has gone through a lot of changes in its short history as a network. From only showing classic animation in the early 90s, to creating original animated programming beginning 1995, to even the embracing of live-action in the mid-2000s: Toon has been through quite a bit. But if one thing has stayed constant, it is the channel’s inability to surpass their fellow networks in the ratings. No matter how original the concept, no matter how funny or action-packed one of their shows might be, and no matter the timeslot, Cartoon Network is rarely able to catch more than a second’s worth of glory. Time to take a look at the reasons why.
