Thanks to the popularity of its audience, the production of animated films has become a multi-billion dollar industry with a high level of competition. That is why the small business, when you fail to new ingenious ideas, often have to take desperate measures to cover their expenses. You’ve probably heard about these scams cartoons: copies bad of original animations.
Great.guru has prepared a list of some of the imitations and blatant, humorous or ambiguous. It checks to see if it even worth to see them!
“The legend of Lucky Pie” is a series of animated cartoons created by 2 chinese artists, Yimmu and Tim Chan. The first episode aired in January of 2015 and lasted 12 minutes. We’ve only released 4 episodes up until now, because the artists primarily work from home and do not have the support of an animation studio. Although many viewers considered this drawing a parody of “Adventure Time”, some fans are waiting for the new episodes.
The plot follows the story of a dog named Pip who gets lost in the jungle for a safari and has to adapt to a new way of life in the nature. Sounds familiar right? “Life is a jungle” is a blatant copy of “Madagascar” with an animation horrible, the plot predictable, and bad voice acting.
“Kiara the brave” is a film animated india that premiered in the united States in 2012. Even though the plot had nothing to do with the Pixar film “Merida”, the distribution company was accused of plagiarism due to its front cover: it showed only the red haired girl Kiara, and she was not even the main character.
The animated film is brazilian, “The little panda fighter” received comments extremely negative on the part of the public. Like most cartoons of this type, it lacks in animation quality, character development and soundtrack decent.
“The Samsonadzes” is an animated series Georgian about a family of cartoon yellow skin that reminds strangely of “The Simpsons”. Shalva Ramishvili, director of production of the cartoon, says that his work is not a copy but a unique idea that reflects the mentality Georgian. Well, the majority of the critics take this statement with caution, and are quite sure the true inspiration behind this series.
This blatant copying is considered to be the most horrible of all times. Thanks to the terrible script, boring story, and the animation is horrible, it is almost impossible to sit down and watch it completely, even if it is only 44 minutes long.
Produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions in 1973, “Goober and the ghost hunters” is definitely not the worst scam in our list. This animated series plays the Scooby-Doo original, almost exactly, with only slight changes in the plot. But even so, the program received positive reviews from audiences and has a rating IMDb 7.1.
This cartoon was created by the same producer brazilian made “Ratatoing” and “The Little Panda Fighter”. Voices are terrible, the animation quality poor dialogue and stupid to make it impossible to look at her. Viewers even complained that some parts of the cartoon are racist.
“Plan Bee” is a parody created by Sparkling Entertainment in 2007. The cartoon has been widely criticised by the dialogue ambiguous, the animation is lazy below average and the lack of jokes enjoyable for the children.
Created by Studies Briquedo, “The frog prince” is no different than any other animated cartoon produced by this brazilian company. The characters annoying, the animation block and the writing surface to make you appreciate even more the original.
“Tappy Toes” is a scam quite obvious “Happy Feet”, with the difference that now the penguin is learning to dance and has to deal with the evil sea lions. Surprisingly, despite its poor visual quality, he received some positive reviews for its ability to bring out good laughs and fun characters, with which one could identify.
“Insect stings” suffers from the same problems that most of the copies: a plot not decent and the animation is hilarious. But this has one big advantage, its duration is only 25 minutes –so that is the animated short of all time!
There has been a heated debate as to whether the masterpiece of Disney, “The lion king”, is just an imitation of the animated series japanese “Kimba, the white lion”. Although Disney denied any connection between these cartoons, many spectators noticed a lot of similarities, mainly in animation and visual. In an interview, the animator Tom Sito said that it is not inspired by Kimba, but some people who worked on this project could have seen the series in japanese to be children, since it was quite popular in the years ’60. Then, the situation seems to be just a coincidence and no one took materials “Kimba” deliberately.
In the end, these two cartoons are truly works of teachers with fans of all ages around the world.
