See, as you or Silverstar pointed out, one factor of the show is that the cartoon characters don't appear often. Add that to the fact that Cartoon Network promote this show as "Their first live action show" rather than "Their first cartoon/live action hybrid".

Exec 1: Considering that the Appleday Toons are part of the castm shouldn't they have more screen and story time?
Exec 2: The only purpose that the Appleday Goons serve is shutting up those naysayers who believe Cartoon Network should focus on animation 24/7.
Exec 1: Kind of pointless considering we've had movies that are 100% live act....
Exec 2: Away with you now.
