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.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 beginning of the thread Tom posts:
But under "JAM REQUIREMENTS" it says:At 7/2/21 11:57 AM, TomFulp wrote: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.
"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.
In the end we really just want to see fun new content on the site :)
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.
