  • You know how sometimes there's a certain work of art that's similar to an earlier popular one, you enjoy that secondary one instead of the popular original one, but the secondary one is the one you got to know more? Well, I have felt this way a few certain times. My best example is the Smurfs/Snorks thing. I love "Snorks" and but didn't get into "Smurfs" very well. But since this is a Disney wiki, I'll discuss a Disney related example; the "101 Dalmatians/Aristocats" issue. Now please don't take this the wrong way, I'm not saying I hate "101 Dalmatians" because I don't. When I was a kid, I didn't know about the orders of when Disney movies coming out, nor of popularity. If I enjoyed something, that's all that mattered. I saw "The Aristocats" first, understood the concept, and became comfortable with it. I also thought the characters were fun and it had a moderate amount of developed characters. I also really liked how the characters actually fought the villain in the end. Not that I thought "101 Dalmatians" was bad, it just felt like there were WAY too many characters, and I thought the story wasn't entirely strong, at least in terms of a moral for the characters. I thought the movie was nice, but not great. I guess there was something about it that wore off too quickly for me. And I felt the same way with other films or shows, sadly on the "wrong" end; like the "Ichabod and Mr. Toad" segments, or the Roger Rabbit/Bonkers issue, and like I said, Smurfs/Snorks. If any of you feel the same way I do, I hope I can support you.

    • You know what? I feel that the "Shnookums & Meat" show had problems:

      1. It was a rip-off of Nickelodeon's "The Ren & Stimpy Show".

      2. It couldn't handle the mix of comedy (the "Shnookums & Meat" segments) and action (the "Pith Possum" and "Tex Tinstar" segments). I wish that the show had been handled differently.

    • You are right feel this with other cartoons or movies like for example I loved The Simpsons for a long time then Family Guy came into my life. I thought this was disturbing and a rip off of the Simpsons. And with Madagascar/The Wild. My family and I loved Madagascar. Soon The Wild came out I felt like it was stupid.

    • Of course. Plus, I've come up with some other issues, aside from the Bonkers/Roger Rabbit issue and the Shnookums & Meat/Ren & Stimpy issue.


      1. Aristocats/Gay Purr-ee

      2. Aladdin/The Thief and the Cobbler

      3. The Lion King/Kimba

      4. Shnookums & Meat/Pith Possum & Tex Tinstar


      I feel that the "Pith Possum" and "Tex Tinstar" segments could have been recognized more. Don't you agree with me?

      Um, I dunno. But are you trying to say you have liked some the "secondary" ones?

    • Sorry. These are the issues I came up with, and no. "Aladdin", "The Lion King", and "The Aristocats" were some of the Disney movies I grew up with. But you know, I feel that I like "Gay Purr-ee" more, because the movie has plenty of trains. :)

    • I have a theory what if we don't like any of these types of movies or shows because we are too used to it. For examples you hate shnookums and meat because you saw something like it and you are expecting the same thing out of it. I have our feeling sometimes we like change when we see rip-offs of these things. Like come on we have seen this before give us something better again to shnookums and meat you think its alike because both are about a dog and a cat living togather.

    • Ok. I think I know where you're going; even though the Aristocats came first, you like "Gay Purr-ee" more for reasons of your own. Am I right?

    • No, I don't hate "Shnookums & Meat".

      A little bit, but I'm not sure how to answer that one.

      Well, I suppose that's one way to put it.

    • That's fine. It's really confusing to me. :/

      Besides, do you like the "Pith Possum" and "Tex Tinstar" segments? :)

      Well, it kind of be similar to enjoying another book about a boy who goes to wizard school , but liking it differently for your own reasons, even though the story woukd be similar to Harry Potter.
