Wait, who’s that pokemon? Geodude?

Before seeing Geodude:

I feel like I remember something like this in Super Smash Bros? I don’t recall. I remember thinking he was some kind of asteroid, but I assume my memory is wrong. He’s a boulder, so I guess he should have cracks in him or moss and grass or something?

After seeing Geodude:

No I don’t recognize this at all. I don’t know what pokemon I thought was an asteroid. How does his mouth work? Does the entire bottom half come off like a Canadian from South Park?

margaretrs112 asked:

Mordecai love Margaret not Godzilla!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! >:( STUPID QUUUUUEEEEEEERRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! >:(

No, no, no, he totally loves Godzilla. You’re getting your timelines mixed up and I bet I know why: I remember a story about you! I remember before Mordecai even met Godzilla in Japan he met someone else at Thomas’s pool party. Someone with the codename: Margaretrs112.

It was right before the pool party started. Margaret, Mordecai, Thomas, and you were all there. You started hitting on Margaret. You always felt some peer pressure to hit on girls from your friends and brothers, even though you didn’t particularly want to. Margaret was laughing and having a great time with you, much to the anger of Mordecai. Even though you weren’t really into her, you were glad it was making Mordecai jealous. She and Thomas left to go get some extra soda for the party leaving you and Mordecai alone in your swim trunks.

Mordecai confronted you. He even tried to fight you! He ran over to you, pushed you a little and you guys would start grappling, falling onto the grass. He’d be pushing on your chest and trying to jab you with his elbows! You hate it but… you kind of like it? These emotions are so confusing.

You keep pushing him away but you can’t help but feel it’s futile. You guys aren’t even fighting anymore, you’re both just kind of… together. You realize what’s happening and try to push him away even more but now your hand.. it’s not acting like you want it to act. Or is it? It’s moving downward, slowly making its way down to- oops! Elastic waist band! Mordecai takes his hand and grabs yours. 

Your faces are pressed together from the fight, forehead to forehead, but the feeling has changed. It’s not anger you feel anymore, but your heart is beating in a way you’ve never felt before. The tension is real, like a thousand rubber bands cocked and ready to fly at a substitute teacher. Did I say cocked? I meant it. Cause that’s where your hand is now. Your lips touch his beak like a fairy dancing on water droplets. It’s not him you fear, it’s yourself. More passion now. Your tongues press and massage each other, clashing together as though battling for Helm’s Deep.

Half an hour later the fireworks have had their grande finale. Neither of you speak. You write down your name and phone number on a piece of paper and hand it to Mordecai. You then make your way home, skipping the pool party because what sort of fun and happiness could be greater than what you just experienced? As Thomas and Margaret return they ask where Margaretrs112 went. Mordecai looked at the piece of paper, crumpled it, and threw it away.

“I don’t know” he murmured.

Wait, Who’s that Pokemon? Nidoran?

Before seeing Nidoran:

I was pretty confident that Pokemon have some sort of thing on them that symbolizes their super power. I have some faint recollection of seeing them blast water out of water sacks with like swirly water tails. Also I know Charizard is the dragon and he has a flame tail or flame wings I think. I kind of hoped the coloring would give it away like a poison dart frog or something. I don’t know how it poisons things? I assume the spikes do it, so that’s why they’re a little lion-fish-like.

After seeing Nidoran:

I can see why my girlfriend was so upset about the rat tail now.

Wait, Who’s That Pokemon?
Anyone who knows me knows I didn’t watch anime as a kid. In fact, I actively despised it for many many various reasons that I’m not going to go into right at this moment. My attitude has since changed a lot and in the past 2 or 3 years I’ve actually started looking into it a bit more. I’m now basically an anime blank slate.
Because of this attitude I missed almost everything related to Pokemon. I played Super Smash Bros, so sometimes pokemon would show up in that. Also, I saw it in passing when my sister would watch it. I wanted to watch Twilight Zone reruns, she wanted to watch Pokemon. This led to much disagreement after school. I also saw some Digimon when she would watch it, but I don’t think these two shows are related?
Anyway, this is a project that was brought up to me by our PA, jameslien, when he discovered I have zero pokemon knowledge. This project has been done by others in my situation and it’s actually super fun!
The rules are as follows:
James describes a pokemon on a post-it note.
I draw the pokemon from his description without googling what the pokemon actually looks like. Everything drawn is from my memory and what the description says.
I don’t know what this kind of thing is called? Maybe it’s called blind fan art? Regardless, I’ll post one a week and hopefully it will look like the Pokemon we’re aiming for.

hebrideanisle asked:

What would you say was the worst episode of RS so far that you have seen, and the worst episode you have yourself worked on? As a counterpart: what was the best episode in general you have seen, and the best you have personally worked on?

I can say my least favorite of mine that I’ve made is probably Party Re-Pete. It was my second episode and I didn’t really know what I was doing. There were a lot of things that, if I had the skills I have now, I would have caught back then.

There was a section in the outline that said something like “in a flashback, Party Pete is shown getting thrown into the cloning machines by Tommy and Vince”. I made it so the flashback showed Party Pete’s entire history with Tommy and Vince, including meeting them at college and starting a party starting business together. Also painting Part Pete as a more sympathetic character with occasional desires other than partying (such as playing sudoku). It got changed after I handed it in to just be about Benson saying what happened to him. This makes more sense as the story is supposed to be about Benson, and it really should have stuck with him the whole time, but I wasn’t able to catch that back when it was given to me.

So now every time I see that episode I have this cringy feeling as bits of dialogue that I originally wrote got shifted around and changed to be from Benson’s perspective. It’s not that it’s bad, I just wish I had known better and I could have written something that satisfied myself and the goal of the episode more.

As far as favorite episodes of mine go (from the ones that have aired) I would have to choose Portable Toilet. I really feel like that episode just fit together really well. It felt like it sort of fell into place. It has a bunch of sci-fi in it, which I’m always really into. It was fun coming up with satellites, even though apparently most of the ones I originally drew looked like dicks. I also liked doing all kinds of military jokes based on the countless amount of action movies I’ve seen.

It was also fun to do something with CJ and make her more into just a person instead of a romantic figure. I even got to research portable toilets to make sure someone couldn’t suffocate in there for that one throwaway Eileen line about them being well ventilated. I emailed a bunch of portable toilet manufacturers and they were utterly confused about what I could possibly be trying to teach about portable toilets to kids on some TV show.

I like most of my episodes. I really liked “I Like You Hi” because of Mordecai getting real at the end and how it was just my actual feelings coming out of his mouth. I also liked Bad Portrait for the art school jokes we got to make.

ketchupusername asked:

How limited are you about the things you can talk about to the fans when it comes to regular show? I've always wanted to know.

Kinda limited. I can’t talk about story points, which seems to be what everyone wants me to talk about. It’s pretty silly to ask about those things because why one earth would you wanna learn about it by asking someone instead of watching the story itself? That’s the worst way to find out about anything.

I can talk about process however. If someone wants to ask the technical details of how we work or what we were thinking about in a particular episode (that already aired) then I can answer that. I can’t answer on behalf of other storyboard teams though. Sometimes people will ask me about someone else’s episode and what something is supposed to mean, but I don’t know because I’m not them.

The trick question version of that is no good as well. Like the one where it’s actually a spoiler question sandwiched in a non-spoiler question. Like “what were you thinking about while you boarded that section with CJ and Margaret fighting in that fever dream?” You’re not tricking me. I know what you’re trying to get me to actually say by asking me something else somewhat tangentially related. Also I didn’t board that, so all around its a question that doesn’t work for me.

But really, I love questions. I just can’t answer a lot of them or I’ve already answered a bunch that were very similar. I tend to try and answer intriguing questions or questions I think could help a lot of people.

hebrideanisle asked:

Do you suppose there is a reason why RS has been taken off the schedule completely? They are not even airing reruns. Possibly to push other shows?

I dunno. I don’t really know why or how scheduling works on stuff. However, we will have a terror tales episode, so there’s no reason to worry! It’ll come back full force and everything will be back to normal. Believe me, I want them to be airing as well so I can hear reactions to our work. It’s hard working on stuff and then not being able to talk about it for a year. :-/

annemorderita4 asked:

¿When will be ready the 6th season of RS? I can't wait

30 Day OTP Challenge: Day 30 - Doing something hot
Careful Mordecai, play with fire and you might get burnt! Sometimes when Godzilla gets startled he breaths a little fire. It’s his natural reaction, it’s almost like a gag reflex! Hope Mordecai likes the taste of roast bird!
That’s it! I did it! This is the last day of the 30 Day OTP Challenge for Godecai! I hope it was as fun for everyone else as it was for me. I cannot think of a better OTP than Godecai and I hope eventually the leaders of Cartoon Network and Toho will finally get it through their heads how much the fans want this! Nothing would make me happier than finally seeing Godecai become canon.

yo do any of you lil shits watch the regular show and if so, is it suitable viewing for someone trying to avoid doing university work all day and all night?

30 Day OTP Challenge: Day 29 - Doing something sweet

While in a stopover in Japan for their honeymoon, Godzilla introduced Mordecai to mochi! It’s the number one food in Japan so Mordecai thought he should definitely try it. He likes the sesame seed ones and the mango ones but not the red bean paste ones because they’re bitter and gross. Why does anyone like red bean paste?

30 Day OTP Challenge: Day 28 - Doing something ridiculous

For their honeymoon, Godzilla thought it would be a good idea to take a trip around asia with a quick stop off at Monster Island. Anguirus has a really cool ball pit that they got to jump into after fighting off Kumonga and Kamacuras.
I decided to try and do this one in a new style without lines. I think it turned out really cool! The balls were a lot of fun to figure out!

30 Day OTP Challenge: Day 26 - Getting married

The day has finally come! All of Godzilla’s best friends swam all the way from Japan to help set up the decorations. They couldn’t afford a really big fancy wedding, but Mordecai said “As long as we’re together and our love is together, then I don’t need a fancy wedding”. All their friends from the park came and also Techmo showed up and dual DJed with Thomas.
