I've seen the following animations, For Better or For Worse, The Boondocks, Baby Blues, Dilbert, Animal Crackers, The Peanuts, Garfield, Martin Mystery, Team Galaxy, Code Lyoko, Shuriken School and The Last Airbender.
Most Favorite: Night Hood: Exploits of Arsene Lupin
Edit: I do like anything related to Matt Groening.
I've seen a couple episodes of Phineas and Ferb. It's not bad, but it's very formulaic: Phineas and Ferb come up with something awesome to do for the benefit of somebody else, the sister gets bent out of shape and comes up with hare-brained schemes to get them busted, Perry goes on his secret agent missions against Doctor Doofenshmirtz (I'm probably not spelling that right), then it all wraps up with a "where's perry?" "grr" "oh hi perry!"
Props to the show's writers for lampooning the standard-fare in one of the episodes, though, where the sister says it all with an eye-roll before it actually happens.
The thing about P&F is that it has nearly 10 different "once an episode quotes" that will be said throughout the show, which will be lampshading, parodying, inverting and subverting throughout the episodes. So more than once episode has to be seen to actually hear some of the jokes.
Also if the recent episodes I'm soon are the newest ones, some of the plots don't have Candice trying to "bust" the boys.
There's also quite a few adult jokes and of course the SONGS!
S.I.M.P. Squirrls In My Pants.
And something videogame related.

Well, finally saw Toy Story 3 last night. Woody's flailing running animation still makes me laugh
Don't know why people found the ending sad to the point of crying though, thought it was a pretty happy ending. I mean yeah the kid has to let go of his good ol' toys, but by giving 'em to the little girl atleast they get to be played with. Just like Pokemon NEED to beat the shit out of each other dem toys need to be played with. Better then rotting away in the attic.
Though I'll be honest I expected the movie to go Plague Dogs the moment they accepted their fate in that incinerator scene.
It's sad and happy at the same time. On the one hand they get to stay together and keep being toys, and on the other they have to say goodbye to the owner they've dedicated their entire lives to and fought insurmountable odds to stay with several times.
The closest human analogy I can think of would be getting married and starting a family of your own, but never being able to see your parents again.
Nester the Lark: Speaking of the song "Reincarnation," perhaps it might have sounded something like this if the game had gotten an English dub.

nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?
Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.

nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?
Feb 6, 2021 11:42:34 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.

nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?

Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.

Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.
