Go for it, but be sure not to use any of the original material. Make it all your original creation.

Does it matter if I apply black bars to my cartoon or not? It'll still be in the 4:3 aspect ratio, thank you!

Newgrounds supports uploads in the 4:3 aspect ratio, but if you can't export that way then black bars are totally fine!

So I'm guessing that means no cussing or large amounts of gore since its a saturday morning cartoon. With it being Newgrounds I would think there would be a little.

Sure, though I do think there's a lot of opportunity to take inspiration from he-man and that shit with their funny fake curses!

 Saturday Morning Newgrounds
"What if Newgrounds was your Saturday Morning cartoon-block on TV?"

The challenge this time is for animators to emulate the style of both classic and retro television cartoons from the 1970s to 1999. Make use of classic tropes (imagine if Pico's School was retold like an episode of Scooby-Doo), stylize your work to fit different eras (like GI Joe shown in glorious Standard Definition with VHS static and broadcast quality color), and entertain the internet on Saturday Morning, July 24th!

Make use of classic Newgrounds games, movies, and characters for subjects(share the original content that inspired you in your project description), or take on the challenge with your own original characters. @HappyHarry is one creator heavily influenced by this era of western animation and uses that lens on their own IP, such as DR. BEES!

https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/793162

JAM REQUIREMENTS

Upload your animation to Newgrounds any time between now and the due date. There is no formal signup process, just tag your entry with “Saturday-Morning-Newgrounds” to enter.

Music must not present licensing / royalty issues. Good resources include the Audio Portal (see Creative Commons info or ask for permission), an original composition by a teammate or one of these many royalty-free resources.

Try your best to make cereal milk come out my nose, and dig deep to find Newgrounds legends gathering dust!

Round Two Judges:

@BrandyBuizel - “**** you, it’s my birthday, I’m judging ROUND 2 too.”

@el-cid - The man lives and breathes cartoons. He’s got some weird tastes and I dig it. Rodrigo here works hard and has a good eye for quality work that 6,160 fans on Newgrounds can recognize (I hope typing the actual number forces Tom to update it daily).

@IvanAlmighty - Hosted some of the largest collaborative projects on the website including the Smash Collab and the DBZ Collab a couple years back. He’s a kickass freelance animator too!

@Cymbourine - I dunno, I like her name and she said she’d do it. I think she stole it from The Adventures of Cookie & Cream video game and that’s a 10/10 guaranteed.

@AnonymousAlchemist - One of the donors to the Summer Animation Jams and suggested the original concept behind Round 2’s theme.

@jaxxy - Do you know obscure western cartoons that you won’t believe got made? She does.

@ChutneyGlaze - Created a fun, original series with Hanna-Barbera sounds alone. Currently working on Sheriff Bean.

Judges can choose to participate in a round, but they will not be considered in the rankings for that round.

Due Date:
Friday, July 23rd 11:59PM PST

Don’t be late, cause I hear @BrandyBuizel is going to be streaming your entries Saturday Morning on the Newgrounds Festivals YouTube Channel, July 24th (exact time TBD), with pajamas and creal at the ready. Happy Animating!

Hi. I have never participated in any competitions or any other kind of events on Newgroumds before. I read this thread because "Newgrounds Saturday Morning" piqued my curiosity. Newgrounds technically wants to emulate the old-school feel of the Saturday Morning cartoon viewing experience online but in the form of a contest.

But under "JAM REQUIREMENTS" it says:


"Your aesthetic style should be reminiscent of cartoons from the Saturday Morning phenomenon 1969-1999."


Which is it? Can the cartoons reflect times earlier than 1969? Why can't the cartoons reflect the early- to mid-'60s? Saturday Morning cartoons on American TV actually began in the '50s.

Myself and a few others who concocted the theme felt the Saturday Morning Era really began with Scooby-Doo in 1969 and lost its luster in the early 2000s. If you have any cartoons you feel are appropriate to the theme, then feel free to post them here, or make your submission with them in mind(I'm sure it'll be great). We're not gonna be a bunch of hardasses about the specifics, just trying to push people in the right direction!

Well I'm obviously not going to have anything prepared to be submitted an shown by the contest's deadline. I had some ideas for some cartoons I would have wanted to produce. I don't want to go into details about my ideas and disclose what they are here.


I want to produce cartoons that are throwbacks to old Golden Age Hollywood cartoons and old '80s and '90s TV cartoons.


I did want to create an animated promo that is vaudeville-themed for an original cartoon series that is partially inspired from the opening The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Show from 1960. (In the opening of the show Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck do a little song-and-dance number on stage to introduce the show with. The show later became The Bugs Bunny and Twenty Show and opened with similar openings with Bugs and Daffy.) I would later change it to be used in the opening of my series.


I am wondering if what I wanted to submit would have been an acceptable submission.

"Your aesthetic style should be reminiscent of cartoons from the Saturday Morning phenomenon 1969-1999."

Which is it? Can the cartoons reflect times earlier than 1969? Why can't the cartoons reflect the early- to mid-'60s? Saturday Morning cartoons on American TV actually began in the '50s.
Myself and a few others who concocted the theme felt the Saturday Morning Era really began with Scooby-Doo in 1969 and lost its luster in the early 2000s. If you have any cartoons you feel are appropriate to the theme, then feel free to post them here, or make your submission with them in mind(I'm sure it'll be great). We're not gonna be a bunch of hardasses about the specifics, just trying to push people in the right direction!

In the end we really just want to see fun new content on the site :)
Well I'm obviously not going to have anything prepared to be submitted an shown by the contest's deadline. I had some ideas for some cartoons I would have wanted to produce. I don't want to go into details about my ideas and disclose what they are here.

I want to produce cartoons that are throwbacks to old Golden Age Hollywood cartoons and old '80s and '90s TV cartoons.

I did want to create an animated promo that is vaudeville-themed for an original cartoon series that is partially inspired from the opening The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Show from 1960. (In the opening of the show Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck do a little song-and-dance number on stage to introduce the show with. The show later became The Bugs Bunny and Twenty Show and opened with similar openings with Bugs and Daffy.) I would later change it to be used in the opening of my series.

I am wondering if what I wanted to submit would have been an acceptable submission.


I'm wondering why I didn't get a response to this post.

I read this thread because "Newgrounds Saturday Morning" piqued my curiosity. Newgrounds technically wants to emulate the old-school feel of the Saturday Morning cartoon viewing experience online but in the form of a contest.

In the beginning of the thread Tom posts:

"What if Newgrounds was your Saturday Morning cartoon-block on TV?"
The challenge this time is for animators to emulate the style of both classic and retro television cartoons from the 1970s to 1999.
But under "JAM REQUIREMENTS" it says:

I don't see why not, so long as the above guidelines are met(e.g. 4:3 aspect ratio).
