CHEAPEST Shows You've Ever Seen?

these new age 'flash' cartoons are a disgrace. I hate how theyre purposely animated badly under the guise of 'stoner comedies' so they can work with shoestring budgets while simultaneously getting hipster cred. i'm talking about stuff like stuff like highschool USA, archer, my little pony and adult swim stoner cartoons like squidbillies, aqua teen hunger force, metalocalypse, venture bros, etc. I was watching better animated stuff in 2003 on newgrounds

in anime the cheapest show I can think of is digimon adventures. the amount of re-used animation is staggering. the show is barley animated at all when compared to other anime. the fight scenes (if you can call them that) are a joke and are usually over the second one of the main digimon uses his/her signature attack which is the same animation they use over and over
there was a hole here

If you weren't watching TV 50 years ago, you've not seen cheap. I remember the Zarbi in that early Doctor Who season. And the SFX all the way through the '70s.

^ I'll second that. I wasn't around then, but I've seen some of those shows.

I've also seen this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKwzcI6t_AQ

You've not seen cheap until you've seen Ed Wood. Just watch Plan 9. It is delightfully cheap.

Ha. I love Space Ghost Coast to Coast and that's basically the granddaddy of all those uber-cheap stoner comedies you hate. To each his own I guess. ^_^

It's not that harmful; and it's only 49 episodes. DBZ, on the other hand...

Gundam wing wasn't that bad and keep in mind that DBZ has been revised a millions times.

As for me, I can't stand the new teen titans. It's awful and so are those spoof shows on adult swim.
Maybe if you shut up and stop over analyzing everything you just might get it........

The USA Street Fighter cartoon was pretty bad, I would catch it on the USA network every once a while, however it wasn't until a few years later that I realized how truly awful it was.

:lol: I love how the guy behind that series boats of producing more "animation" faster than Disney did. Shows like that inspire me in the same way the filmmaker behind Manos, Hands of Fate was inspired: If anyone can make this kind of cheap crap and pass it off as a product, then I should be able to as well.

Clutch Cargo's creator outright said he didn't consider it an animated cartoon.

The cheapest looking show I've ever seen is 12 Oz. Mouse. To make a show look any cheaper it'd probably have to be text based.

One Word: Oobi

that show's budget is like $100 or something. It's funny. they got away with letting the hand puppets mess with glue and the glue totally looks like jizz

12 Oz. Mouse and Squidbillies are two of the most unfunniest and ugly looking shows I have ever seen.
