Why do people always think that because something has become popular it's immediately lost all credibility?
Because it sucks when an art form becomes a "scene" and everything that made it great and unique is lost to the masses. People stop enjoying it for what it is, and start latching onto it because it's hip. It stops being art, and starts being a fad.
Hot Topic kids have no concept of the finer points of animation or what makes a show like Regular Show as good as it is. Their interpretation of it is "Oh my god, it's so twisted and weird, they said piss", and that's it. It becomes reduced to watered down schlock. It is not admired for it writing or palette choices or animation style, it's admired because it's "cool". People are taking the bare bones appeal of it, and running with it.
