I guess it's from 'Apocalypse Now'.

Sorry, but they are more boring than entertaining. The artwork is bad, the
enemies are stupid and everything reminds far too much of the old Bugs
Bunny cartoons from Warner (flat & superficially drawn backgrounds, Sonic
using lots of disguises etc.).

The problem is that the weekday cartoon _isn't_ funny at all. Maybe it
would have been a success ten years ago, but the kind of comedy people
want to see today is different.

They are trying, but alas it doesn't work.

That's the only thing where I agree. I would also like to see more of
Tails in the cartoons. But watching the weekday show only because of
Tails... nah.

Take it easy

You get what anyone gets. You get a lifetime.
