I’ve noticed that many people on this forum have refused to watch various animated programs due to their thoughts on their animation styles or artistic designs. I found this to be interesting, as I don’t believe that I have ever refused to watch an animated program based upon what it looked like. Everybody knows the old adage that people shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, and I was curious; should the same logic be applied towards animation? Have you ever refused to watch an animated program based upon its animation style or its artistic designs? Also, do you believe that it is fair for people to refuse to watch something based on such things, without considering the other aspects of the series? Personally, I don’t believe that it’s fair. I mean, I have no problem with people who consider animation styles and artistic designs when they make their overall judgments of a series, but if people refuse to give a series a fair chance based upon what it looks like, then they’re merely guilty of prejudice. Sometimes, genuinely entertaining experiences can be found even with unpleasant artistic designs, and animation styles have little to do with how entertaining a series can be. If the writing is good and the characters are enjoyable, then it should be entertaining regardless of if it’s hand-drawn, CGI, flash or anything else.
