      The story behind that is ridiculous.

      The show was a huge hit, so they wanted to make sure it stayed on top. They hired a consulting agency to find out what kids wanted in the show, and the company basically made shit up instead of doing actual surveys. The show's direction and quality tanked as a result. Toward the end of the show, they actually undid some of the changes, but it was too late, along with the show having already run for 7 seasons.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Real_Ghostbusters

      Season 4 was the beginning of it, when they changed voices, softened plots, and focused heavily on Slimer Janine took the biggest hit, though, changing her from no-bullshit to mom-figure.

          By shifting all operation to a different studio and headed by a different director?

          Mario season 3 was fundamentally different from the previous 2, where quality took a massive dive. And half the voice actors changed between super show and Mario 3.

          I think the same thing happened with Alvin and the Chipmunks, they changed studios a few seasons in and it was an entirely different show.

              I remember Kidd Video looking a lot like a production from Don Blum but he never worked for DIC did he? He created the classic house style for Disney in the 60s and 70s ala 101 Dalmatians and The Sword in the Stone but after he got fired I think he was his own independent studio with Space Ace, American Tail etc? So maybe his style was copied a bunch in the 80’s?

                Super Mario Super Show was also filled with live stuff and was about Mario and Luigi getting lost in a wacky fantasy world...that looked a whole lot like Flipside.

                And does Alf count? It also looks like it was made with the exact same background and character designers, and had life action muppet Alf at the beginning and ending of each episode. Animated Fraggle Rock was the same.

                masterpiece, best quality, 1girl, penny, blonde hair, twintails, blunt bangs, blue eyes, BREAK red shirt, white horizontal stripe across middle of shirt, red horizontal stripe across bottom of shirt, BREAK long green pants, small light green square patches on knees, reinforced knee, BREAK (wristwatch:0.6), brown shoes, <lora:Penny:1>

                Q: What Model should I use?
                A: I’ve had best results with “Cartunified v3” and “CalicoMix DangerousCute DC v.4.0” Other people like to use CalicoMix, but her face comes out too “anime” like.

                Q: She always seems to have an annoyed/sad/mad/surprised expression. Adding “smile” makes her mouth look weird.
                A: Use (smile:0.7). I’ve gotten good results with 0.6-0.8. It sometimes also adds blush. I don’t know why.

                Q: Her outfit doesn’t come out right. How do I fix it?
                A: It’s an issue that doesn’t have a simple solution. The prompt I showed above is the best I can come up with.

                Q: Hands and feet are horrible. How do I fix?
                A: You can try adding “EnvyBetterHands LoCon”, “EasyNegative”, and “Negfeet” with the appropriate prompt/neg prompt text. It doesn’t help much and it can interfere with the image generation. In fact the close up example in the OP won’t work with those additions.

                Q: Why do people sometimes put “navel” in the Negative Prompt?
                A: It sometimes tries to make her a little older and her shirt doesn’t fit properly. Doing this will force it to stay on model sometimes.

                Q: I want make a new image based on another image on CIVITAI. However, the prompt doesn’t work for Penny. What do?
                A: You could try copying the relevant keywords instead and putting those in the prompt.

                Q: Can we do lewds?
                A: Yes. Lewds are very easy. I won’t be posting them since this is a blue board and they aren't allowed. Go ahead and make your own. I'm practically spoon-feeding you everything.

    This is such a rocking track too bad the singer couldn’t say Penny but Sophie as she was known in the French version. Like “petit petit Penny” goes together well. Plus if they did an English version with lyrics “pretty pretty Penny”. Way better than most pop songs French or English otherwise then and now really.

      My guess Global at the time didn’t order the S2 episodes for some reason. They also continually showed Spiderman 60s, Rocket Robin Hood and other old ass cartoons repeatedly in Canada with barely any modern animated shows till finally YTV and Teletoon came along and their first years they showed old cartoons too.

        I explained it here.

        Nelvana co-produced the first season, so they own perpetual Canadian rights to it and it counts as Canadian content. Gadget was one of the things that saved the studio after Rock and Rule flopped. Corus owns Nelvana and the channels Gadget ran on for decades.

        Nelvana weren't involved with Gadget's second season.

        >They also continually showed Spiderman 60s, Rocket Robin Hood and other old ass cartoons repeatedly in Canada with barely any modern animated shows

        Rocket Robin Hood and Spiderman also counted towards their Canadian content quota.

        Nelvana's Care Bears show stayed on Canadian TV for so long for the same reasons Gadget did, though that was a fully Canadian production.

        Thanks anon for that tidbit of info.
        So it begs the question - where did season two air originally? I never saw it air in Canada in reruns during the 90s and 2000s. Unless it aired once in the 1980s, and I wouldn't have known, I was just a babe.

          I was born after the original show ended, so I genuinely don't know if the second season ever aired in Canada. Newspaper TV schedules rarely included episode titles for kids shows, so I'm not sure if there's any way of knowing beyond finding someone's ancient recordings of it.

          This article, which was originally written in 2002, claims Gadget debuted on Global between 1983 and 1986. That implies they had season 2 at one point, but let the rights lapse.

          https://broadcasting-history.ca/inspector-gadget/

          The show seemed to have a bunch of different homes in Canada during the '80s. Apparently, it might not have been on Global nationally (was Global a national network back then?) as I found some old TV listings saying it aired on CTV in Regina, for example. It also seemed to have run on what would later be known as The Movie Network (now, Crave's linear channels).

          Incidentally, Nelvana not being involved with the second season seems to be why the voice cast changed over. With the exception of Adams and Welker, the first season was recorded in Toronto. Season 2 moved everything to Los Angeles as DIC did that work in-house.

      Penny is his niece so that makes me wonder what happened to her parents. Like Gadget could have been involved in some incident with MAD in which the parents were killed and Gadget was grievously injured, leading him to need all his augmentations, and that would explain why he's always going after that organization and why he's protective of Penny.

    Do you think there's some link between Gadget's technology and the computer book? Like maybe it has blueprints for his gadgets, or drivers or even something like a remote off switch in cause Gadget goes haywire and needs to be shut down. If MAD got ahold of that sort of thing they could be a lot more dangerous to Gadget.

    You could have an episode where Penny gets captured and tied up like usual but the MAD agents also got her computer book. Then they need a password to get into it and have to figure out a way to make Penny tell them that the code is 12345, like tickling her or something.

    Are the extreme/real Ghostbuster cartoons any good? At least the first couple of seasons?

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      I can’t speak for Extreme because I never watched but it does have it’s dedicated fans so it must be pretty good. The problem is Ghostbusters became the Slimer show and a lot of fans dropped it as a result but I haven’t watched Real GB in years but I remember it being good. So I’d check out at least the first seasons of Real and Extreme and decide if you wanna go on but full warning the Slimer episodes become less about ghostbusting and more about looney toons shenanigans instead.

      Making Gadget serious, let alone competent and darker, is just peak autismo and stupid.

      When Gadget becomes aware that Penny is in danger he does get more competent. Maybe he just has to focus to operate well and he's too absent minded to do that often.
      I agree it shouldn't be much darker, I guess you can watch Robocop for that.

        The early episodes had him slightly less moronic.

        the 5th episode is when he recognizes Dr. Claw's vehicle and chases him. Any other time, and he thinks it's just another car.

        Here's a real bit of trivia: Penny didn't have a computer book originally. It was added later. Episode 2 could have been solved with the book, but she didn't have it.

          Just checked, looks like the first time the computer book appeared in the show was when she was in a pit crew where she controlled the gadget mobile with the book. She must’ve built it since the computer from episode 2 was never seen again.

          Usually if the animation was done by a Japanese company for an exported show back in the day, we would never know who their names are. It would just say "TMS Studio" or whatever. Granted I havent watched IG in a while.

        Who knows, whoever they put in charge of animation for the show definitely weren't as good as the original company for the first series, that's for sure. Of course, the show did seemed aimed more at younger kids than even the original, so it could have been just half-assed since "eh, kindergarteners won't give a damn if the animation is cheap"
