** Raygunguy: For me while the corporate apologizing was heinous, that wasn't what made me give up on the series. What did was how in the next video. In their follow up video, they did not respond to any of the criticism they had received. Instead, the crew treated what they said as gospel then made more stupid statements based on their faulty assumptions.

* Ferigeras: Before I begin, I'm not one to be disgusted by merely any kind of CruelAndUnusualDeath this show could present, because by the show's very nature, it relies on a lot of [[CrossesTheLineTwice crossing of the line... twice]] and I always acknowledged it as such, so unlike my fellow tropers above I don't consider even overly messy deaths to be going too far for the show's... well, "standards", as long as they stay true to the show's overly cartoonish and gory black comedy nature (although yes, just like many others I can't stand the mere sight of The Ants due to them putting Sniffles through constant DisproportionateRetribution every time they appear). That being said, however, one episode managed to give me just such a moment that I think was horribly done: ''"Letter Late Than Never"''. The premise is admittedly a fun one: [[MooseAreIdiots Lumpy]] working as a mailman. Lumpy is actually one of my favorite characters this show has and while it's true that his frequent stupidity and even occasional antagonistic roles cause a lot of death and destruction, I think that he's a generally entertaining character to watch and he isn't even really safe from this show's LaserGuidedKarma either. With him having so many jobs yet messing up several of them in over-the-top fashion, an episode in which Lumpy works as something fairly commonplace like a mailman sounded like this, just your usual Lumpy-style episode. Turns out I was proven wrong in the worst way possible. And the reason for that is one single character: [[AttackOfTheKillerWhatever The Killer Turtle]]. This needs explanation: Just as Lumpy delivers his first mail in the episode, he discovers a doghouse with a skull sign on it, naturally fearing what would come out of it. But once it turns out to be the aforementioned turtle, Lumpy first laughs it off and then pats the turtle on the head, after which het gets his finger violently bitten. Lumpy then tries to run away but keeps tripping on one random object after another until he eventually reaches his car, where he is then mauled by the turtle, in gruesome manner. But that's just the beginning, because it turns out the turtle is out to chase down Lumpy, as it appears a second time not too long after the first scene. This time, Lumpy tries using a can of dog repellent on the turtle, but ends up spraying his own eyes by accident. He then can't see the turtle approaching him and by the time he spots it, he already gets severely mauled for the second time. Then it all comes to a head in the episode's last few minutes, where Lumpy has to climb up a mountain to reach a house he can deliver his next mail to. And this is the part that I very much consider my DMoS of this show: Just as Lumpy exhaustedly reaches the mountain's top, that damned turtle suddenly appears infront of the house Lumpy just reached through what can only be explained by OffscreenTeleportation, after which Lumpy steps back out of fear and accidentally slips off the edge. Lumpy then falls all the way from the mountain to come crashing down to the ground, which shockingly didn't kill him. What instead happens to him is a slow and unbearable death scene easily comparable to Sniffles' death that's already been talked about above. Immediately after Lumpy ends up an immobile and bloody mess after the fall, through OffscreenTeleportation (''again'') the turtle immediately appears next to Lumpy, whom it now begins pulling to it while eating him whole, with the poor moose unable to defend himself whatsoever. He desperately tries reaching for the nearby dog repellant with his antler, only for it to spray on his eyes... ''again''. The episode ends with Lumpy eaten alive with the very last shot being of the turtle spitting out one of his antlers... and burping of course. To sum up what makes this episode so bad to me: Instead of another crazy Lumpy episode with him causing lots of chaos to happen, there's actually relatively little in the way of death and injury happening to other characters by his mistakes or basically anything else for that matter (only two characters die by him through complete accident and the first death only occurs about 5 minutes in, in a 7-Minute long episode), instead subjecting Lumpy (and the viewer) to possibly the slowest, dullest and most un-cartoonish pain a single episode could ever cram in, all that caused by a slow-ass turtle that (funnily enough) only exists to slow down the episode to a painful crawl whenever it shows up, but it's the last bit that really makes this episode my least favorite in the TV series. Sniffles still objectively had the worse death in "''Tongue in Cheek''", but I think watching Lumpy slowly getting devoured while he is unable to do anything about it just after barely surviving a deadly fall from a mountain on top of already having suffered severe maulings before just feels like a chore. There's over-the-top black comedy gore and chaos the show usually goes with and then there's spending too much time on frustratingly dull and drawn-out suffering. This easily falls into the latter.

** SenorCornholio: I second that, though I'm a little more critical on this video. I have more problems in mind, such as calling WesternAnimation/ExtremeGhostbusters a remake when it's a continuation of the original WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters with clear ties to its predecessor, and WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog actually being considered a remake for this list despite being the first Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog cartoon ever aired (and though I do appreciate him not blindly bashing WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground like most tend to do, it sadly qualifies more than [=AoSTH=] for this list due to having similarities to WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM and [[ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog the comics]], the former of which was heavily anticipated for a comeback after its SequelHook). And apparently, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ViPq-aJKB0c I am not alone]] [[https://youtu.be/JvXKtIpkbuw in thinking this]]. Aside from that, most of the other entries were understandable, then the [[spoiler: Scooby-Doo]] entry comes up and my eyes light up in confusion for all the reasons listed above. Even as a person who also isn't the biggest fan of [[spoiler: Scooby-Doo]], I can say this was a dumb choice. RebelTaxi might have also put the entire franchise on his list of worst remakes because he also wanted it to just die already, but at least he didn't put it at numero freaking uno (Plus, it was PlayedForLaughs). Seriously, to put this over the likes of [[spoiler: TeenTitansGo]] and [[spoiler: Yo Yogi]] is mind-boggling to say the least, since [[spoiler: TTG]] at its worst actually goes out of its way to insult its own critics and [[spoiler: Yo Yogi]] was one of the most 90's-pandering shows of all time. Not even the [[DorkAge worst of]] [[spoiler: Scooby-Doo]] is that bad; at worst it gets stale and repetitive like he says, which would be a good reason to put at least some entries in the franchise on this list, but nowhere near #1. What's more is that he barely mentions most of them aside from the infamous terror of [[spoiler: Shaggy and Scooby-Doo Get a Clue]] and the divisive series that is [[spoiler: Be Cool, Scooby-Doo]] as if he hardly saw any of the other shows. I'd have appreciated it if he said "not all of these are bad, mind you, but the majority tend to be mediocre at best", but he didn't; instead he goes through a long laundry list of "remakes" that aren't even listed in how bad they are. So now, we have to assume that he blindly hates [[spoiler: the earlier direct to video movies]] and [[spoiler: Scooby-Doo: Mystery Incorporated]], which are considered silver linings in the franchise; also very easy to do as [[spoiler: Mystery Incorporated]] was included in the rundown (quick update: as of his "Top 5 Cartoons I hate that Everyone Likes" list, he has watched [[spoiler:Mystery Inc.]] and found it refreshing; strike off for that one). I do like PhantomStrider's videos most of the time, but this was quite the big stinker for him. And I sincerely pray it does not occur again.

* [=TheLemsterPju=]: I am by no means a recurring watcher of [[RebelTaxi RebelTaxi's]] videos, but one of his videos I have seen had a moment which screamed unnecessary. When he covered The Modifyers in his "Top 10 Failed Animated Pilots" video, you know what one of the first things he does? Adding a scene from Zonesama's hentai video of the main character (Agent Xero) getting tentacle raped by the villain. It is quite obvious that he has a huge fascination for the parody animator, but it served no purpose to the video at all, other than an apparent promotion for Zone, and at the same time makes him come across as a bit of creep. This did not go without SelfDeprecation in later videos.

* {{Tropers/HaileySawyer101}} This Dethroning Moment of Suck comes from [[http://www.dorkly.com/tag/pokemon-sun-playthrough JHall's Pokemon Sun Playthrough comic series]]. Since this series doesn't have its own section, I figured it would be appropriate to post this in the "OTHER" folder. Get up and grab a snack because I have quite a bit to say. Now I'll be honest. I actually do like this series and I look forward to reading new episodes every Thursday. It addresses various issues with Sun and Moon, such as the long wait to get your starter at the beginning of the game due to excessive dialogue as seen in episodes [[http://www.dorkly.com/post/81739/pokemon-sun-playthrough-episode-3 three]],[[http://www.dorkly.com/post/81817/pokemon-sun-playthrough-episode-4 four]], and [[http://www.dorkly.com/post/81918/pokemon-sun-playthrough-episode-5 five]], and at times, pokes fun at them, such as in [[http://www.dorkly.com/post/83556/pokemon-sun-playthrough-episode-31-32 episode 32]]. I also like some of Jhall's Pokemon, with my favorite being Mr. Snuggles, especially when he evolves into a talking Incinaroar that's a calm intelligent 'mon who can turn into a raging wrestler at a moment's notice. Hell, at times, it can even get a little emotional, as seen in [[http://www.dorkly.com/post/86029/pokemon-sun-playthrough-episode-77 episode 77]]. Despite my love for the series, I'll admit that at times it can fall flat on its face in big and small ways. I think one of the most prominent examples of this for me is the entirety of [[http://www.dorkly.com/post/86279/pokemon-sun-playthrough-episode-83-84 episode 83]]. So in this episode, Jhall is visiting the Vast Poni Canyon and his Charjabug named Chompers is evolving because of the magnetic field in the area. When it evolves into Vikavolt, it's revealed by the Rotom Dex that Chompers' physical defense lowers when it evolves and Jhall says, "Right. Of course. Did God make this region as a prank or something?" Now what's wrong with this episode you may ask? Well let's take this one step at a time. So the plot of the episode is just one joke about how Charjabug's defense is lower when it evolves and because of this, its evolved form Vikavolt faints when it gets hit by a tiny rock and when Jhall finds out about the lowered defense thing he gets angry and rants about it for a bit. And that's it. That's all you get from that episode. There is a bit at the beginning of episode 84 where Jhall tells Chompers not to get hit and Chompers gets hit but it still isn't all that much. Now I wouldn't have much of a problem with this but the joke feels rather lackluster, as it doesn't seem fleshed out enough to have any sort of real punch. Now here are some interesting facts about Charjabug and Vikavolt. While it's true that Vikavolt's physical defense is lower than Charjabug's, it isn't anything to be too worried about. According to Bulbapedia, [[https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Charjabug_(Pok%C3%A9mon)#Base_stats Charjabug's physical defense]] is 95 while [[https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Vikavolt_(Pok%C3%A9mon)#Base_stats Vikavolt's]] is only 90. So right here we're only looking at a five point difference, which really isn't all that drastic if you ask me. Also, at level 49, Charjabug is able to learn [[https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Charjabug_(Pok%C3%A9mon)#By_leveling_up Iron Defense]], which boosts physical defense by two whole stages, making the whole "lowered physical defense upon evolution" thing a non-issue. So why I'm I bringing up this information? Well because I feel like Jhall could've used some of it to make the Charjabug/Vikavolt joke work better. In the series, Jhall's Charjabug is capable of being a beast in battle, as seen in [[http://www.dorkly.com/post/84858/pokemon-sun-playthrough-episode-47 episode 47]]. For the Pokemon who require being in an area with a magnetic field, such as Vast Poni Canyon, to evolve like Charjabug for example, they need to level up in that area first to trigger the evolution. So here's what I had in mind. At the beginning of the episode, we see a battle where Chompers uses Acrobatics or one of its other moves like Spark or Crunch to take out a wild or trainer owned Pokemon in one hit. Now while the levels of Jhall's Pokemon aren't mentioned in most of the series, I'll assume that Chompers is at level 48 due to the fact that Jhall is at Vast Poni Canyon, which you visit towards the end of Sun and Moon before you face the Elite Four. After Chompers wins, Jhall's Rotom Dex informs him that Chompers grew to level 49 and that it can learn Iron Defense, which boosts physical defense by two whole stages. The Rotom Dex asks Jhall if he'd like to replace one of Chomper's moves to allow it to learn Iron Defense. Jhall then arrogantly rejects the offer. The Rotom Dex says, "Are you sure? Its physical defense is going to be lowered by five points when it evolves. It also keeps its weakness to Rock type moves as well." Once again, Jhall rejects the offer and says that Chompers is perfect the way he is. When Chompers evolves, Jhall is very excited to the point where he's bouncing off of the walls of the panel or panels and says, "Yeah! No one can beat him now!" Then, Chompers is suddenly hit by a rock and gets taken down easily. Then, Jhall gets angry and says, "Did God make this region as a prank or something?" to which the Rotom Dex calmly replies, "No. You're just an idiot." Jhall's anger then intensifies to the point where he tries to hurt the Rotom Dex. Also, it could just be me but I feel like Jhall only looked at the base stats for Charjabug and Vikavolt and just made the episode without doing any additional research. As a result, the joke also feels rather rushed and lazy. It's a shame too because I know this series is capable of being really damn funny and putting more time and effort into its jokes.

Since this series doesn't have its own section, I figured it would be appropriate to post this in the "OTHER" folder. Get up and grab a snack because I have quite a bit to say. Now I'll be honest. I actually do like this series and I look forward to reading new episodes every Thursday. It addresses various issues with Sun and Moon, such as the long wait to get your starter at the beginning of the game due to excessive dialogue as seen in episodes [[http://www.dorkly.com/post/81739/pokemon-sun-playthrough-episode-3 three]],[[http://www.dorkly.com/post/81817/pokemon-sun-playthrough-episode-4 four]], and [[http://www.dorkly.com/post/81918/pokemon-sun-playthrough-episode-5 five]], and at times, pokes fun at them, such as in [[http://www.dorkly.com/post/83556/pokemon-sun-playthrough-episode-31-32 episode 32]]. I also like some of Jhall's Pokemon, with my favorite being Mr. Snuggles, especially when he evolves into a talking Incinaroar that's a calm intelligent 'mon who can turn into a raging wrestler at a moment's notice.
