I was watching Adult Swim and I saw this commerical about "Free Hockey Chicken" and down in the screen, it said "Anime teh s uck". Is CN actually dissn' anime or are they making fun of anti-anime fans by calling them bad spellers?

Quite awhile back some schmuck posted 'cus anime is teh s uck' on their messageboards, in all seriousness. The AS guys then latched onto it and used it as a catch-phrase for awhile, I even own one of the shirts.

In one of their bumpers, Adult Swim had the following:

Things that the message boards have taught us:

2.You guys LOVE reruns.
3 HAMTARO MUST DIE!
4. cus anime is teh s uck

In fact, that's our new tagline.

cus anime is teh s uck.

This is what happens when you have way too much free time running a network...

I was thinking about it too. When I saw the commercial, and saw it. I was like, Does that say "anime sucks"? NO! It can't be!

I dont think AS would say anime sucks since many of their shows are anime and I would guess most people watch AS for anime Very Happy

I read somewhere that Inuyasha is the highest-rated cartoon in AS while Family guy is 2nd. But I'm not sure.

Yes, that seems about right...as for "anime teh s uck" I'm not sure what that means but when I first saw it on that Hockey Chicken commercial, I was certain they meant that Anime sucked, but that couldn't be right...so I waited for the commercial again, and I thought it was true. But the title "anime teh s uck" isn't clear exactly so I'm really not sure what it meant. Confused

Nope. Family Guy, Futurama, and a handful of WS's own creations still top the anime stuff on a regular basis.

Well, I have to admit, Family Guy is a funny show, but so is Harvey Birdman. I hated Aqua Teen Hunger.

I also kind of got the vibe that the AS guys loved anime and were always trying to increase the market for it, but the numbers were just never there (see; The short lived Action Block on Saturdays). Family Guy and Futurama were just the workhorses of the block, they'd always do well no matter the timeslot.

"Anime is teh s uck" came from the Adult Swim boards. The space in suck was because of the censors. Anyway, way back before the AS boards had as many folders as they do now there was "fighting" between the comedy and anime fans. One comedy fan replied to a topic with "because anime is teh s uck" and it stuck. That's how the whole thing started.

Well Futurama and Family Guy won't last forever, they've already run through all the episodes numerous times. Eventually, they will lose their steam.

Good thing Family Guy has 22 new eps in production, and I believe they're aiming for some kind of Futurama mini
