Western Animation / Oh Yeah! Cartoons

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/OhYeahCartoonLogo_7775.jpg

What What A Cartoon! Show was to Cartoon Network, Oh Yeah! Cartoons was to Nickelodeon. It was a showcase of cartoons from multiple fresh and up and coming animators at the time. Several of these animators got their big break here thanks to Fred Seibert, founder of Frederator Studios and creator and producer of Oh Yeah Cartoons, What A Cartoon, and the briefly produced Random Cartoons on Nicktoons Network. Of the shorts that appeared on the show only three were made into series by Nickelodeon; Butch Hartman, with his The Fairly Oddparents, Rob Renzetti with My Life as a Teenage Robotnote , and Bill Burnett and Larry Huber note , with Chalkzone.

A few other noteworthy animators who came out of this and were picked up by Nickelodeon and other companies fairly quickly after Oh Yeah! Include Seth MacFarlane of Family Guy, and Dave Wasson of Time Squad and Carlos Ramos of The X's. Other noteworthy creators include Mike Bell, Alex Kirwan, Tim Biskup, Pat Ventura, Steve Marmel, Zac Moncrief, and Vincent Waller, just some of the incredible talent in the animation industry that helped in the creation, writing, and directing of several highly creative, and influential animated series in the recent years since 1998.

Compare Random! Cartoons, a similar Nickelodeon anthology show which even got it's own More Popular Spin-off (albeit on a different channel). Also compare the Nickelodeon Animated Shorts Program, Nickelodeon's non-Frederator incubator, which is shown online.

Tropes applying to Oh Yeah! Cartoons include:

  • Affectionate Parody: Rob Renzetti's The F-Tales, a satire of The X-Files in which a vixen and a chicken investigate Fairy Tale stories.
  • Badass Santa: Super Santa
  • Battle Couple: Super Santa and Emma Claus.
  • A Boy and His Frankenstein Dog: The premise of "Ollie and Frank", which is about a Child Prodigy named Ollie who creates a playful and obedient Frankenstein dog named Frank.
  • Donut Mess with a Cop: "A Cop and his Donut"
  • Fractured Fairy Tale: "Tales From The Goose Lady" consists of the Goose Lady forcing two children to listen to bizarre versions of famous fairy tales.
  • Kafka Komedy: The Goose Lady's rendition of Hansel and Gretel. Hansel and Gretel are two greedy fat kids who keep trying to eat the Witch's candy house. Ever time the Witch tries to stop them, they cry for help and a nearby Woodsman, assuming the Witch is trying to eat the kids, attacks her with his ax. The pattern repeats itself until the Witch's home is nearly entirely gone. She then constructs a new house made out of liver, which repulses Hansel and Gretel... but it turns out the Woodsman loves liver and starts eating the house while the Witch breaks down into tears.
  • Karma Houdini: The Goose Lady from the "Tales from the Goose Lady" shorts never gets punished for preventing the two children from attending school in order to force them to listen to her stories.
  • Kid with the Leash: Mina and The Count.
  • Left Hanging: "Planet Kate" ended on a Cliffhanger and wasn't continued.
  • Mrs. Claus: Is also an Action Girl in Super Santa.
  • Public Domain Soundtrack: Some of the music used in "Jamal the Funny Frog" was from the classical era.
  • Punctuated! For! Emphasis!: OH! YEAH! CARTOONS!
  • The Renaissance Age of Animation
  • Stepford Smiler: The Goose Lady appears to be one, leading in to her having a breakdown near the end of one of her shorts by pointing out how ridiculous her entire existence is.
    The Goose Lady: You think this is easy for me? Look at me LOOK AT ME! I'M A TALKING GOOSE!
