YMMV: Cartoon Brew
  • Animation Age Ghetto: Averted, but lampshaded once it happens.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Jerry is generally considered the more intelligent one of the two people who ran the site.
  • Internet Backlash: To the point where the Cartoon Brew forum thread on here is now locked.
  • No Such Thing as Bad Publicity: When My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic was brand new, Amid wrote an article decrying Lauren Faust's involvement as "The End of the Creator-Driven Era in TV Animation". /co/ caught wind of Amid's article and fell in love with said show.
    • His no-less-than-five articles about Glen Keane's resignation from Disney Animation Studios have become annoying, but has driven Keane farther into the spotlight for fans, and they are all clamouring for Keane to produce his own project that will knock Disney out of the park!
    • The layoffs and bankruptcies of animation studios have gotten so common to the point where CB now provides a disclaimer at the end of every one of these kinds of posts, detailing where and how to report these stories to them.
  • Jumping the Shark: After Jerry's departure, some thought the site will now be nothing but angry rants courtesy of Amid. The other new writers arguably balance it out, though.
  • Never Live It Down: Expect pretty much any conversation about the site to heavily mention Amid's rants and Accentuate the Negative attitude.
  • The Scrappy: Lets just say most of the trope entries that were removed because of complaining were about or related to Amids posts. Also, both of the sites entries on the DMOS page are about posts he made. Although, with Jerry no longer on the site, readers may now have to deal with Amid!
  • Vocal Minority: Many of the site's rants against the current state of the animation industry are actually far and in-between.
