Justin Roiland is perhaps most well-known for his work on “Rick and Morty,” however, that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t be aware of his other projects. Although it didn’t inspire Mcdonalds to revive a long-dead dip sauce or create an endless stream pickle-themed memes on Twitter, “Solar Opposites,” has had its own success streaming on Hulu. The series wrapped up its second season in March. But it was clear that Roiland, his team and the show weren’t done yet. Hulu has now confirmed that “Solar Opposites,” will be returning.
Although Hulu has not revealed much about Season 3’s plot or cast, the Twitter account of “Solar Opposites”, has given details. Season 3 is still a mystery. But fans can be sure that it will arrive sooner than they think. For hints about what might happen in the next episodes, you can look back to Season 2 instead. Here’s what we know about Season 3 of “Solar Opposites”.
When will Solar Opposites Season 3 be released?
Many fans guessed that “Solar Opposites”, Season 2, would be ending soon. Korvo literally says so when the characters transform into trees in the last episode. However, Hulu will not confirm the episode until it is officially approved. It seems that this day has arrived, and it is a good thing. The official Twitter account of “Solar Opposites”, posted a video on May 16 confirming the release date and providing details.
The video shows the (now-blue) Pupa staring suspiciously at The Wall. “Solar Opposites,” Season 3 will debut on Hulu July 13. It is likely that all episodes will be available simultaneously, unlike the previous seasons. Fans will get more of the content they love this season. According to The Hollywood Reporter Season 3 of “Solar Opposites,” will be 12 episodes in length, instead of the eight-episode seasons that Seasons 1 & 2 had. This is something that fans will love.
What’s the story of Solar Opposites Season 3
Season 2 of “Solar Opposites,” left fans with some interesting developments for their favorite Schlorpian family. The final episode of Season 2 shows us the beginning stages in the Pupa’s Terraformation process. The Schlorpians know they will die soon so the Pupa can eat and evolve them. They spend the majority of the episode racing to find existential fulfillment, before they die at midnight. We learn seconds later that the Schlorpians return as trees when they kick the bucket.
The Schlorpians have returned to their normal forms by the time of “Very Solar Holiday Opposites” Special. The Pupa is one step closer to turning the Earth into a Planet Schlorp. However, the family still has plenty of time to enjoy more wild adventures. The Wall’s inhabitants also have more time to engage in bitter rivalries.
Cherie officially returned to The Wall after giving birth to Pezlie in a Pez container. She plans to join Halk and overthrow Tim after learning that he has become another despot. Season 3 will reveal the details of how they plan to do this.
Who are the Solar Opposites Season 3 Cast Members?
Fans can expect more of the same for Season 3 of “Solar Opposites”. We don’t expect the Schlorpians to leave the show, as they are still around and healthy. So, we can expect to see the return and re-election of Korvo (Justin Roiland), Terry(Thomas Middleditch), Yumyulack (“Sean Giambrone”), and Jessie” (Mary Mack).
The Wall’s characters are much the same. The Wall’s drama continues with Tim (Andy Daly), Cherie, (Christina Hendricks), Halk (Sterling K. Brown), and Tim (Christina Hendricks). Yumyulack shrinks unlucky people on a whim, and every season has seen new faces to The Wall. It would not be surprising if this side of The Wall grows with each season.
Hulu isn’t letting on if the show will be adding new characters. The tweet announcing the launch date for the next season shows only the Pupa. It’s possible that we won’t find out about any new characters until they appear in “Solar Opposites Season 3”.
While parents do their best to choose what their children see, the majority of cartoons are viewed by kids. The problem is that TV studios have fewer than ten employees. This means that kid appeal relies on guesswork. Cartoons often try to get kids’ attention by mimicking what is popular.
They don’t seem very to grasp this concept either. There are hundreds of cartoons that end in horribly outdated, blatantly copied, or both. These were the cartoons The Simpsons intended to use in an episode in which Scratchy and Itchy tried to create a new character. They “Rastafy him about 10% or more” resulting in someone who claims he is “a kung fu hippie hailing from gangsta town” and “a rapper surfer”.
Even the most popular fads are not sustainable. These cartoons were already attracting flies when they first hit the airwaves.
It makes sense to grab the success of a rising star and hope that you can do the same. It’s risky. Fame can vanish as fast as it is earned. And when it does, everyone who tries to cash in looks ridiculous.
MC Hammer looked ridiculous in his baggy, baggy “Hammer pants” and it was no surprise. He seemed to be the best option in 1991. He was the first rapper to achieve mainstream success in the 1980s. He had five top-ten singles as well as the number one album in 1990.
Hammerman might be responsible for the fall of MC Hammer’s star. The rapper became a superhero thanks to his magical, talking shoes. Each episode teaches a lesson about graffiti (because it could bring life to someone’s death), and MC Hammer appears live to help explain it.
Rap had drastically changed by the time Hammerman made his debut. N.W.A. was the new generation of gangsta rappers. Tupac Shakur and N.W.A. were more concerned about authenticity and toughness that mainstream approval. Seeing them on TV as a combination Mr. Rogers/Mighty Mouse was a sure way to being uncool.
Sitcom stars become adventure heroes in Laverne & Shirley. Join the Army
Cartoon producers can’t restrain themselves from trying to translate a cartoon’s popularity into another medium. Laverne & Shirley, a Happy Days spinoff, was about the daily adventures of two single women in ’50s Milwaukee. Although it was a big hit, it wasn’t exactly what kids would do on the playground.
For some reason, Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams were able to return for animated Laverne & Shirley in Army. Laverne & Shirley were not content to work shifts at the beer bottling plant or argue with Squiggy upstairs. Instead, they featured a talking pig and rocket ships, space aliens and a giant gorilla.
And that’s before we even get to the opening titles! While most title sequences take a while to explain the concept, Shirley shouts, “Laverne! Let’s join the Army!” “A commanding porker?” We are even more confused than she, as we don’t know how the porker got there. These titles are so chaotically edited that they could give you a seizure.
Strong Bad, a character in the Homestar Runner web-series, says that Limozeen in Space is the best thing he has ever “seen”, done, or eaten. It’s the cartoon adventures of his favorite band. “But why aren’t they in space?” Strong Sad, his brother, asks. “There is no reason they should be in space!” Although it is a valid question, TV producers don’t seem to have the time to ask. They seem to have only asked “What are people looking at?” They also asked, “How can we make sci-fi cartoons out of it?”
Gilligan’s Planet: Can you think of any better explanation? The decades-old sitcom’s shipwrecked characters build a rocket ship from bamboo and coconuts in an attempt to escape the island. However, they end up a little too far away. There’s even a cartoon alien sidekick. The Partridge Family is about a family that plays folk-pop music and who, when the show was over, moved to the future in animated The Partridge Family 2200 A.D. Orbit, their cute robot sidekick, joined them.
The Fonz and the Happy Days Gang are the final two. These teenage stars of the comedy, who all look like wrinkled old men, lose their time. Their cute cartoon sidekick, Mr. Cool, who for some reason walks on his hind legs.
Captain N: The Video Game Master was a big fad in 1980s cartoons. Captain N was a child dressed in a ’80s-tastic letter sweatshirt who is sucked through his Nintendo Entertainment System to Videoland. There he meets Princess Lana (who is the wrong color), Kid Icarus, who keeps adding “-icus”, and Castlevania’s Simon Belmont, who’s a useless dandy rather than a badass vamp hunter).
They fight evil from every Nintendo’s catalogue led by Metroid’s Mother Brain. Levi Stubbs, who is the singer of the Four Tops as well as Audrey II in Little Shop of Horrors, voices them. The Gameboy would become a living Gameboy in later seasons. This would make Alucard no longer be Castlevania’s beloved character. It would also transform him into a mixture of every stereotype of a slacker teen.
It doesn’t sound like the writers knew anything about the games that they were supposed to adapt. Jeffrey Scott, a writer, once admitted that he didn’t have the time to play through all of the games. He asked Nintendo directly for information, which was clearly lacking.
Rubik, The Amazing Cube couldn’t have happened in the 1980s
G.I. Joe, Transformers, My Little Pony and many other toy-based cartoons filled the 1980s. Joe, Transformers and My Little Pony were just a few of the many toy-based cartoons that were available in the 1980s. Although these shows were not great, they had to have toy boxes filled with colorful characters and close collaboration with toy manufacturers to ensure that the cartoons and toys played to their strengths.
After all the toys had been used up animators became desperate. That’s at least the most plausible explanation for Rubik the Amazing Cube. Rubik, The Amazing Cube was based on a toy that had less personality than sticks or rocks. It featured a Rubik-like Rubik with an ugly, old, wrinkled face. He spoke in a faster voice and refers to himself as the third person, which is a combination of all the worst traits of cartoon characters.
Three children discovered Rubik when he fell from a horse-drawn buggy driven by an evil magician in the middle of 1980s. Rubik is a Rubik’s Cube, and he has incredible magical powers that allow him to do anything the plot demands. This happened in every episode. A Rubik’s Cube episode doesn’t sound ’80s enough. Menudo did the theme song.
Hanna-Barbera has never seen a trend it didn’t like or a hit that it couldn’t copy. The Flintstones took The Honeymooners’ sitcom and made it prehistory. Daws Butler was the voice of Yogi Bear in The Honeymooners’ Art Carney. They ripped off their own as much as anyone else. The folks at Hanna-Barbera stamped the winning formula on every show, when Scooby-Doo went mainstream.
Josie and the Pussycats modified the Archie comic to suit the Scooby-Doo format, down to adding a pussycat in Scooby’s spot. Speed Buggy featured another group of teens who traveled across the country solving mysteries. The title character was a living dun buggy that was a mix between Scooby-Doo, the Mystery Machine and Tinker. Tinker is clearly just Shaggy after a shave.
The Funky Phantom dares to ask: Why do teen detectives and their animal sidekick hunt ghosts? When the sidekicks could actually be an animal or a ghost? Jonathan Wellington Muddlemore, a Revolutionary War veteran, and his cat Boo are here. As if having one strangely Scooby-ish pet wasn’t enough, Elmo the bulldog was also available. Hanna-Barbera didn’t stop at ripping off one of their hits. Muddlemore’s vocal and verbal tics sound identical to Yogi Bear’s Snagglepuss. This voice was already copied by Daws Butler from Bert Lahr’s Cowardly Lion in The Wizard of Oz!
Jabberjaw is the most bizarre Scooby-Doo knockoff. The show featured more than a group of teenage detectives traveling the globe to solve mysteries. The Neptunes also featured a rock band, including Clamhead, a Shaggy clone — who played sunshiny ’60s music that was more than a decade old when the show debuted in 1976. They lived in an automated underwater city in the future world in 2076.
They had Jabberjaw, a talking shark, as an alternative to a dog. This makes sense considering that Jaws earned more money than God in the previous year.
Frank Welker’s voice as Jabberjaw was a dead ringer to Curly Howard, a Three Stooges alum — not the most up-to date choice since Howard died more than 30 years ago. Jabberjaw stole from another comedian’s style, as his catchphrase “No respect!” It is the same as Rodney Dangerfield, Caddyshack’s star.
Rodney Dangerfield and the Three Stooges Jaws, Scooby-Doo and sunken cities are all elements that share nothing except the fact that they all contribute to Hanna-Barbera’s Mad Libs-style creative process.
Hanna-Barbera tried to turn a Scooby-Doo-shaped Addams Family peg into a Scooby-Doo-shaped one even though they were adapting one the most beloved sitcoms ever. The classic Addams Family TV show, based on Charles Addams’ New Yorker cartoons characters, dismantled the television sitcoms that focus on average American families. It featured the adventures of Gomez and Morticia and their unwholesome, un-average, creepy and weirdo family.
The Scoobified Hanna-Barbera version was born out of an appearance on The New Scooby-Doo Movies. The Addamses got their own series and started having fun with Hanna-Barbera’s formula. They took a cross-country trip in their Creepy Camper, which looked similar to the home from the live-action series. Hanna-Barbera found The Addams Family lacking in cute cartoon animals. They gave their pet lion a larger role and added a vulture to the mix.
Hanna-Barbera accidentally got in on a future trend while they chased the declining popularity of Scooby-Doo. Jodie Foster was just a young Jodie and she played Pugsley in the classic movie Taxi Driver.
Yogi’s Space Race was a space race that took fading franchises into a galaxy far, distant.
Hanna-Barbera’s seemingly random attempts at faddishness paid off and they got every bit of relevance out of their hits. Scooby-Doo has been running for half a century despite all odds with Scoob! Hanna-Barbera kept reviving and recycling the cast of characters throughout the HBO Max series Jellystone. This cast of characters has often gathered strength in numbers, often under the banner Yogi Bear.
Yogi’s Space Race was one of those efforts. It didn’t just gather the stars of The Huckleberry Hound Show and The Flintstones. The formula of Hanna-Barbera’s Wacky Racers, which featured characters competing against each other in an obstacle-filled race using tricked-out vehicles, was also replicated in this new show. The token cheaters were also based on Wacky Racers’ stars Dick Dastardly, Muttley and others. However, due to complex legal issues, they were renamed Phantom Phink or Sinister Sludge.
The Space Race crew wanted to share in the success of Star Wars, a sci-fi adventure that was much more popular than the one they had just completed. They weren’t shy about sharing their thoughts, especially on the logo. The blocky black letters with white outline are the same as the ones on Star Wars merchandise.
The opposite of all the other items on this list, Disney’s Who Framed Roger Rabbit combines live-action with animation to create something completely new. Its influences are film noir and classic cartoons. It was a revival of the studio that saw DuckTales and The Little Mermaid revive it. By the mid-’90s the Mouse House was at the forefront of animation on TV and film. They brought their beloved characters to life in series like TaleSpin, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin and TaleSpin.
The next step was a Roger Rabbit series, but there was a problem. Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment coproduced the movie. Disney created Bonkers D. Bobcat as a Roger-like character. He has a Roger voice and a big, red nose. He lives in a world with animated characters known as “toons”, which are actors who interact directly with humans. Roger fights toon crimes, and he is supported by a schlubby human who loathes toons.
Here is the problem. This animated show eliminated the joy of watching cartoons and real people side-by-side. Roger Rabbit was a huge hit because the “human” characters were as cartoony and cartoony as the “toons, and had occasionally run-ins against cartoon physics.
Thomas the Tank Engine is a favorite of children all over the world. Although adults may have different reactions to the unnervingly moving faces that are attached to the trains’ fronts, it is nothing compared with Jay Jay the Jet Plane. Jay Jay the Jet Plane was created in a time when CGI was still a viable technology, but not enough to make it big enough.
Jay Jay started life as a Thomas knockoff, with tiny toy planes and adventures with small people. They now live in Tarrytown, not Sodor. They have a motherly mechanic instead of a fatherly conductor. The series features Jay Jay, a young pilot who is an explorer and a young tank engine named Thomas. They share the same human and mechanical faces, but their faces are fleshy to add horror.
Jay Jay was selected to host a series on TLC, and the horror level only increased. Producers upgraded to the latest CGI ’90s basic cable, giving the monstrous human-planes realistic textures. These textures were cheap enough to make them look ugly but still lifelike enough for you to feel the sting. The huge, watery eyes that don’t seem to blink are a problem.
You might not consider a movie in which a traumatized vet kills the people of a small country to be “kid-friendly” if you see it. You don’t have to think like a network executive. These things happen in RoboCop and The Toxic Avenger respectively. All three were given cartoon adaptations.
Rambo: The Force of Freedom was the final chapter in the franchise’s transformation, from the grim tale of a wounded veteran left behind by society to cartoon superheroics. Evidently, the creators wanted a piece of the G.I. Joe pie, because Rambo was teamed up with a team of super agents to defeat a Cobra-like evil empire.
Although it might seem impossible to imagine RoboCop being kid-friendly, it actually happened twice: once in 1988 and again ten year later. You might be able to see that neither had RoboCop’s witty satire. However, the second one did feature fold-out skates in its hero’s shoes and a theme song which sang, “RoboCop. RoboCop. RoboCop.”
Toxic Crusaders was the strangest franchise of them all. It was based on a franchise that was mostly about shocking viewers with the most disgusting trash possible. After you remove that and add lots of cute, colorful imagery to the franchise, it is almost impossible to recognize — not even Toxie, who has transformed from a bowel-ripping monster into an all-American boy voiced by Rodger “Squidward”) Bumpass.
