The series is a parody of The Real World and follows the misadventures of the housemates in the fictional show of the same name and uses a sitcom format with a reality TV show setting. The show's main characters are a combination of personalities that were recognisable and familiar prior to the series. Differently, however, Drawn Together used caricatures of established cartoon characters and stock characters. In addition, their character traits parody personality types that are typically seen in reality TV shows.
Over the past five years, a generation of shows challenging norms in content, tone and form has exploded onto TV and streaming platforms. And many in the industry say that this boom is just beginning. The globalization of content has opened up American audiences to high-quality adult animation shows from Japan, France and elsewhere, raising the bar for everyone. As the streaming wars escalate , Netflix, Hulu and others are investing millions of dollars in animation studios and creators, leading high-profile names like Kenya Barris, John Mulaney and Patton Oswalt to bring their talents to the cartoon world. Meanwhile, a new crop of diverse creators that grew up on the The Simpsons is seizing these opportunities to push the boundaries of a form has often been perceived as crude or juvenile. Collectively, they are transforming a once narrowly-etched genre into one of the most elastic and vital art forms of the 21st century.
Western cartoons are funny , and every year, the American animated movies hoisting Oscars over their heads are the ones consumed by kids and marketed for families and designed to make everyone laugh and feel good about themselves and their anthropomorphized feelings. TV shows? And with darker, heavier, more violent content, animation is starting to have its adult moment again this time without the empty inanity of Beavis and Butthead or South Park ; we'll still watch those classics, though.
Fox as a film studio and channel block has seen a lot of hits and misses. And, throughout the years, they've tried to recapture the animated magic that the 90s brought along. It's just unfortunate that a lot of them didn't turn out great or gained enough traction to even long enough in people's memories. The television world is a cruel, competitive beast, and it is even worse so for animators.
