So what's the fusion's name? *Looking forward to catching this on repeat.
The only ones that still go for those stock expressions are Flash shows, but even then some still manage to use a bigger variety of wild takes, like Foster's Home, Gumball, and MLP.Drtooth said:While they do still use it for comedy in this series, I give them major respect for using those extreme facial expressions for dramatic purposes. There's a lot more animated "acting" in recent cartoons than ever before. Even the new Transformers series has some wild expressions on some of the characters. No Transformers Cybertron there. A lot of us grew up with stock expressions and flatter animation leaving the voice acting to speak for itself. Body language, an important part of communication just couldn't be done due to budgets and deadlines. Now you look at Adventure Time and Steven Universe among others, and we got these great facial expressions and body language selling the dramatic points home. that's why I refuse to believe cartoons ain't as good as they used ta.
