Does MC Chris Deserve His Own Cartoon TV Show?
So a couple days ago we got a six minute teaser of the proposed MC Chris cartoon he’s been hoping would be picked up by an unsaid network. From what I understand it hasn’t happened yet and now he’s trying to get the word out there in other ways to get some sort of buzz going about this cartoon.
I’ll admit I’m not entirely certain at this point in time about what I think about Chris personally as I have seen some bummer videos on Youtube and heard several stories where he’s supposedly treated fans in a less than respectful fashion. However, the guy has went out of his way to apologize for being a douche, admitted wrongs and seems to have turned around his general attitude toward playing live and respecting the people who have made him who he is today. Yeah all that aside MC Chris is a pretty bad ass nerdcore rapper, in fact he’s probably the best around. So I give the guy another chance for redemption and now we all get to judge for ourselves if his cartoon has the potential to be a bonafide hit! Here it is:
Well what do you think? Is this the next Invader Zim?! Is Chris the next Bugs Bunny?! It’s hard to tell at this point, this 6 minute clip shows some potential. The animation is decent enough for something like the Adult Swim swim crowd and it’s got some cool, fun action sequences however some of the comedy aspect of it could use a little more work. Parts seemed to drag a bit at points, but I did enjoy how it bursted into a cool rap song after the rather tedious “Don’t get me started” bit. I think personally this could be a pretty rad show, Chris knows his nerd culture and with a little more planning I think the show could move in some genuinely awesome directions. So yeah, I think this has got what it takes to win over a network, with a little more comedic planning I’d hope this show could prove to be a real laugh, because for me that’s all that was really missing from this otherwise rad little teaser…
