F16 - Fourth Wall Go Boom by jbwarner86 F16 - Fourth Wall Go Boom by jbwarner86
I don't do fourth wall jokes in Forever 16 very much, 'cause I want the audience to feel that these characters are real. This is about as self-referential as I'm ever gonna get.

I'm guilty of working pop culture refs into my comic, too, Jesse ^^; :XD:

I thought of doing something for FOX. I have an idea where it's three pre-teens and one robot and all these other characters. It has some elements of FOX cartoons but is different in other ways.

It's hard trying to brain storm what a series can be about. That being the case, having to reference through a lot of ideas that already haven't been overused throughout modern era could be easy.
Here's an example:
If there was a show about young foreigners that have to live in the U.S. and make something of themselves
based on their parents' last dying wishes, but not to give into stereotypes, would THAT be watchable?

I actually agree with Michelle. I think things like Sonny With A Chance, Hannah Montana and even The Suite Life on Deck could be GOOD only if they were handled correctly with better writing, acting and directing. And please. No gags people, Hannah Barbara gaged us out. *_*

"Pop Culture humor's been played out."

That's exactly how I felt after Family Guy. Now I would rather challenge myself by making a story as original as possible than resorting to pop culture as ideas for stories and jokes. After all, how many cartoons before had done something from Star Wars or Star Trek? A lot, right?

I think the best self-referential gags are the ones done in Foxtrot, it's passive without breaking the fourth wall, and it's still enjoyable, just like it is here,
