Funny, but that was SO not Kevin Conroy.

The 90's did things to Saturday Morning that it never fully recovered from.

have you ever watched current saturday morning cartoons? Makes the 90s look good by comparison.

Saturday morning cartoons are all but dead thanks to the cable channels and the Internet. Although the 90s also saw a major switch to after-school cartoon programming, as well as a large push towards prime-time cartoons (Batman:TAS and Tiny Toons both started out as prime-time shows! and of course all of Fox's current animation runs during prime-time slots).

Meanwhile, cartooning used to be a much more intricate art form but thanks to digital cartoon production technology it's become much more of an assembly-line process (see South Park, pretty much everything produced by Cartoon Network, etc.) and so since cartoons can be produced quickly and cheaply with very little effort, and written by just about anyone (usually people who have very little understanding of what makes cartoons work), the decline of mainstream animation was basically inevitable.

(God damnit, I sound like a Cartoon Brew writer now.)

You forgot to talk about John K. and cartoonists in the '40s and how back then they were controlled by animators not writers blah blah blah blah

I think it's related to time and money investment, if it's going to cost a lot and take a while to animate a cartoon, you're less likely to fuck all that up by using shitty writing.

I still remember when Fox's after-school lineup was changed from cartoons to reruns of The Nanny. I kept hoping it was temporary.

It makes me feel bad that later in life this version of Tim Drake will be brutally tortured and driven insane by the Joker. Sweet dreams!

But all too soon, the serums and the shocks took their toll, and the dear lad began to share such secrets with me...

... Secrets that are mine alone to know, Jigglypuff.

Joker! Joker Joker Joker. Joker! Joker?

Joker I choose you! Jim Gordon is weak against your "crippling spine injury and photos of brutal rape of his daughter" attack!

I hated the WB for canning Batman Beyond to make more Pokemon-type shit. And I still hate them for it.
