Many cartoons recently have a tendency to put it's characters in modern situations, such as giving them smartphones, having them do selfies, watch YouTube-esque videos, and use 2010s era terminology and memes. Some may see this as being dated and unnecessary, while others see it as just the world we live in now. Shows like Powerpuff Girls 2016 have been harshly criticized for including this stuff, yet when shows like The Loud House or We Bare Bears do it, nobody bats an eye. How much are you able to tolerate in terms of this kind of modernization in a cartoon? As long as it fits the context of the setting, characters, and/or premise of the show, then I don't really mind it. A show with characters using smartphones doesn't really make it any less timeless since Smartphones will likely be around for quite a long time, as will things like Video Streaming and social media. The problem is when the show uses these things to brag about it being hip and trendy rather than tell a decent story. The reason why it doesn't work with Powerpuff 2016, is because they lack context or relevance and are just thrown in haphazardly to try and make the show seem fresh. We Bare Bears has no problem doing it since the show uses these things for either plot and/or satire. Same with The Loud House or the new Duck Tales series. They treat these things as normal "okay, the characters have phones and take selfies once in a while". They're just everyday occurrences in the world, rather than bragging about how cool they are because the characters have Smartphones, and take Duck Lip selfies and use memes.
