the writers seem hesitant to kill off some characters because it will upset the fans

This has felt like a huge problem with the show, I agree. I can't help but wonder if contracts are some sort of issue, like they keep signing people for multiple seasons before even considering how these characters will fit into a storyline. The cast is just cripplingly huge at this point, it's literally an ensemble cast crowbarred into a drama/horror plot, and that just doesn't work. They don't NEED to start killing people off, they can just not bring characters back/relegate some to a single-episode cameo or a few background appearances, but right now they're just dragging everyone along for the ride, and everyone's characterization is suffering as a result.

I was surprisingly entertained by this film. Felt like a modern-day Who Framed Roger Rabbit, albeit one where the jokes were a lot more hit-and-miss. I think the extreme timeliness of the references will hurt this film's watchability later down the line, but Mulaney and Samberg's voice acting is really good and honestly carries the film. I'm curious if the actual Chip n Dale fans enjoyed the film, didn't feel very loyal to the source material and I feel like a few of the gags (especially
Spoiler: ShowHide
Gadget marrying Fly and having 142 hybrid babies
) would leave a very bad taste in my mouth if I were actually invested in the fandom.

Update: Oops, my bad, I assumed this thread was on the new film that recently came out. I have not seen the original show, but my boyfriend is a fan and kept me updated on all the things the movie was getting wrong, haha
I suppose the only way to really find out is to write to Universal and ask them. :p

But that's a good spot, and that's pretty strange. Did they just forget or something (given what they did with some of the other remasters, I honestly wouldn't be surprised)?

Right, I'm not going to leave this one to the last minute. Actually, I'll see if I can get started on something sometime this week.

Are there any cartoons you despise?

I recently watched the show on Disney+, then later got the official Blu-ray of the show.  If only I was born in the 80s to appreciate it, because it’s a hobby of mine to look back at retro stuff and this is one of those classics I’ll always return to.
