Would An American Tail: Fievel Goes West fall under this page of So Bad, It's Good, or the Film page of the trope?

Am I the only one that thinks that South Park is this?

1.The silver age was a cesepol of stupidity, which is why people like it. 2. I didn't mean that he was the worst voice actor ever, merely that he was unsuited to the role of a 15 year old. I understand that some people like the show for what it is, hence the "your milage may vary", besides, see the big "subjective" at the top of the page? please don't delete it agian.

Okay, point for point:

1. The "Silver Age" of comic books was not a "cesspool of stupidity". Just to name one thing, it introduced the Marvel heroes and all the concepts they brought along with them, but that's only a small part of it. Calling a beloved age of comic books a "cesspool" won't make you any friends.

2. This is a more minor point, but wording it as the "worst voice acting ever" implies otherwise. Moving on.

3. Apart from the "cesspool of stupidity" line, the end of the entry claims that it's "impossible" not to laugh at the show's sheer hideous stupidity. In other words, it rules out any genuine enjoyment of the show and claims as much in objective, "You are a moron if you like this" terms, itself a violation of the "subjectivity" tag. Tacking on a claim that "Your mileage may vary" and spending the rest of the paragraph adding, "(but this is really, indefensibly awful and no sane man would watch it)" doesn't fix that.

The show might have a place here, but the entry — as I have said many times before — is all wrong.

(Wow. How long have we been at this?)

On the subject of the 1967 Spider-Man cartoon: I've said it before, but in short: 1. Calling the Silver Age (or any genre) a "cesspool of stupidity" is not a good way to go, 2. Paul Soles is not the worst voice actor ever, and 3. Never mind that the show has many genuine fans, claiming that it's "impossible" not to laugh at the end result is almost as bad as the writing-off of the entire Silver Age. That — the sheer, all-encompassing contempt, basically — is what's wrong with the entry.

Agreed. The show (the first season at least) is pretty well-liked, so one person's opinion doesn't mean it should be added. (Regardless, I often find myself unable to stop laughing whenever it comes on, but that's just me.)
