Why is Mikey unable to do the crazy things his friends do when logically as a example of American Animation he should do some Tex Avery stuff? Mikey is not a example of old time cartoons, he's a example of Modern Cartoons, The Animated Sitcom and all!
In Script Assassin, Guano quits, and the crew is faced with a replacement writer and director who is famous for killing off characters in past shows he worked on. Mikey and friends try to prevent him from killing off Gonard's character at the same time that Ozu is duped into convincing Guano to return. ....um..... Gonard plays the villain on Lily Mu! Shouldn't having him killed benefit the storyline and boost ratings?
No, in the words of the immortal Ferb Fletcher, a hero's a hero, but everyone loves a good villain. It's basically Joker Immunity. Killing off a well liked character is a good way to lose your show.
