Destroying the page to save it

If we don't delete all content that might in anyone's opinion violate copyright, then some administrator will probably delete this page. So please don't recreate the plot or character descriptions unless you write it all in your own words, and then google what you wrote to make sure someone out there didn't write the same thing by coincidence.

Stoner Comedy

This is almost certainly a stoner comedy t.v. series and it's influence should at least be considered for the article — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.147.154.21 (talk) 06:03, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Raccoon or coati?

Is Rigby really a raccoon or is he a coati? His body type would seem to suggest coati, but if there is official documentation saying that he is a stylized raccoon, then we should stick with that. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.74.212.4 (talk) 13:50, 15 September 2010 (UTC)

High Five Ghost

I just looked at the page and I saw that Jeff Bennett was voicing High Five Ghost. But at the end credits I saw that J.G. Quintel was voicing him. Some one should fix this. JG has voiced High five ghost in every time. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.39.246.78 (talk) 02:48, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Margaret's Species

I was wondering, why Margaret is called a cardinal (bird)? Her biography on the official Cartoon Network websites states she is a red-breasted robin. In all the episodes I watched where she made an appearance, I don't remember anyone calling her, or hint that she is a cardinal. -- Anyomous —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.250.250.87 (talk) 02:31, 7 January 2011 (UTC)

Trivia section?

I added a trivia section so we can add little tid bits like Mordecai and Rigby's video game system is in fact a SEGA Master System. (the oblong shape, the controllers, the close up in "Rage against the TV" shows the NTSC version from the front.)

  • No. Wikipedia articles aren't supposed to have trivia sections. Your content was blatant WP:OR and would inherently be unless J.G. Quintel actually came out and said "yes, they're playing a Sega Master System". Even then, it might be of dubious relevance.

Mordecai & Rigby's Age

How do we know that Mordecai and Rigby are 23 years old? The best evidence I have is in the beginning of the High Score episode:

Kid: Hey, Gramps! Mordecai: Gramps? I'm in my 20's! Kid: Your 1920's!

~Wimpy Fanboy my talk sign! 01:53, 9 June 2011 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wimpy Fanboy (talkcontribs)

  • Their age is mentioned in the first episode ("Dude, we're 23 years old, we shouldn't be busting holes in walls.") Ten Pound Hammer, his otters and a clue-bat • (Otters want attention) 01:59, 9 June 2011 (UTC)
  • I'm not entirely sure Rigby is the same age as Mordecai, especially because there are a number of instances where Mordecai says to Rigby "one day when you're older, you'll understand". That always led me to believe Rigby was at least a few years younger than Mordecai. Can someone please clarify? Menthol Cigarettes (talk) 07:09, 25 July 2011 (UTC)
  • He says "we're" 23. As in both of them. Ten Pound Hammer, his otters and a clue-bat • (Otters want attention) 16:49, 25 July 2011 (UTC)
  • Yes. Besides, Mordecai could be a few months/days older than Rigby.--VegetaSaiyan (talk) 00:14, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

Edit Request - High Five Ghost's Description is wrong!

Whomever edited his description is wrong, that person claims that High Five Ghost could not talk in the first episodes because he was jinxed all that time and that in the episode where Rigby was jinxed, Rigby unjixes High Five Ghost and since then he can talk. That is wrong, it is all wrong. High Five Ghost has always being able to speak, even before the JINX episode, he just doesnt talk very much, usually he doesnt say more than a couple of words BUT the jinx episode has nothing to do with High Five Ghost not speaking very much, even after the Jinx episode he talks the exact same amount as always. Watch the first episodes and you will see that High Five Ghost does indeed talk. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mad Demon Wiki (talkcontribs) 19:16, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

Edit request from 64.178.121.91, 2 July 2011

Not to be a bird nerd, but please change "Robin" to "Cardinal" in the description of Margaret. Red Robins are black with a red breast and do not have a "crest" on their head. The only type of bird she could be is a cardinal.

heres the link, http://www.tvguide.com/tvshows/regular/episodes-season-2/307239 ( it says season 2, episode 25 but its premiering on july 11, 2011)

You should stop being lazy and do it yourself, im trying to help but you dont even take the time to look for it. instead posting some useless bullcrap. I mean it was in the first page on google, all i put was,"regular show season 3 first day", and low and behold its there.

4.244.72.227 (talk) 04:38, 7 July 2011 (UTC)

Right there in your response you said that it says season 2, episode 25 which is not season 3. Furthermore on List of Regular Show episodes it shows that the episode "First Day" is also in Season 2, so there is still no date that I see for the Season 3 premier. It also states that Season 2 consists of 28 episodes and looking at the table only 24 have air dates prior to today. Jnorton7558 (talk) 04:52, 7 July 2011 (UTC)

Death is based partly on Lemmy Kilmister

Someone correct me if I am wrong but Death appears to be directly based on Lemmy Kilmister, the lead vocalist of Motorhead. The "hair", moles to the left of his mouth and gruff English accent are a dead on impression of Lemmy.

Controversies

Party Pete scene omission

LGBT interest media outlets questioned CN's decision to cut a scene in the Australian airing of the episode Party Pete where there is adult dancing in one part such as where Party Pete dry-humps 3 women, as well as a close up of one of his women's breasts. CN refused to comment on the incident. Quintel issued the following statement to The Guardian, on his interview: "It ( the dry hump and dancing) was unscripted, and the plan was to have it like a party teens would like, so this is what happened: Party Pete was throwing everyone a really crazy party that everyone was into, much to the dismay of the Australian airing, and also when Party Peter (sic) was shaking his posterior and The two of his floozies were shaking their butts around Pops, and by the time that came, the party would reach the cliffhanger." [3]

Oddly enough in Adventure Time, another Regular Show related series, they cut off sexual related terms such as 'sexy', 'make-out', and 'kissing' and 'sucks' in particular as the censors considered any mention of sex, relationship or cussing mildly not safe for a cartoon. [4]

TV advertisement

In early 2011 Quintel threatened legal action against the law firm Mo's Money For Taxes, based in Flint, Michigan for running an ad he saw offendingly parodied his work, which featured a man dressed up as a blue jay (Joe Cuper) Named "Mo'Mordecai". The offending ad was dropped from commercials. --208.127.147.179 (talk) 18:04, 15 August 2012 (UTC)[5]

Criticism

Criticism of the work of Regular Show focuses mainly on a perception it has some scenes that aren't like a prime time comedy series on a non-cable network.

Despite praising Quintel before he did Regular Show in 2009, creator and actor at Cartoon Network Thurop Van Orman criticized his work while being interviewed by Jeremy Reidel-Angeline on The Guardian in 2010,the weekly entertainment news magazine and interview show where he equated the old time cartoons from the 2000s and further stated that if a creator of a show on Cartoon Network would make a show depicting people in this manner, it'd be cut due to Standards and Practices, saying "Each creator of a critically acclaimed show is allowed to do what they'd like, there aren't any dictators there. You're free for what you'd like. But I see a lot of stuff that is 'coonery' and buffoonery. I know its scoring many records and having 2.5 million fans a week, but we can do better... Every day I see ads for these 2 shows (Adventure Time and Regular Show) and I am scratching my head... We got a black president Obama and with this edgy scenes in the way when it was better before CN in 2010, we going back to South Park and Mantan Moreland?" When he cited Quintel's success among kid audiences and asking if he wasn't giving CN what they wanted he responded "We've had this discussion back and forth. When Seth MacFarlane created his shows where he had FCC-busting rules for humor, people and kids came to see Family Guy, but when he did American Dad!, nobody showed up. So a lot of this is on us. You vote with your pocketbook, your wallet, you vote by spending your time at the idiot box And this man has got a giant audience, He's very smart. We shouldn't think he's going to make the same thing I'll make or my cousin Joey. With this happening, it makes giant troubling and it hardens back to the Simpsons."[6]Thiscriticism of him was cited and expanded upon by the author Tom Burrell in his 2010 book Brainwashed: Challenging the Myth of Cartoon Inferiority. He cited this as an example of when "we kids pull the trigger for our own image assassination."[7] Burrell also stated, "...it's not entirely fair to expect JG to chart a new course alone. His and TV series would not be so successful if kids didn't have a raging appetite for messages and images that project us as dysfunctional or incompetent. Nothing that occurred during Amos 'n' Andy’s radio and television reign could match the words and actions of comedies like Camp Lazlo and Regular Show. Our attraction to self-demeaning images came way before, and goes far beyond, JG Quintel."] Burrell called for new images of blacks in entertainment and a new vision of kid self-image.

Quintel, Mordecai and Rigby were satirized in a 2010 episode "The Billyshank Redemption", of Wyatt Earp: Dying Harder; the LA Times called this episode one of the most sharpest criticisms of Quintel. [8]

In March 2011 actor William Salyers caused controversy when he criticized him. Salyers, who had been in Judging Amy, a CBS show he was in, lamented the trend of animated CN shows like this one, a phenomenon previously seen in the shows Eddy and Rick and Switched: Reloaded, describing it as buffoonish, saying "Imagine a film like The Blind Side like this.. Do you think it'd be successful? That's what we have to change."

And on June 11, 2012 Quintel was satirized by two pints of lager and a cup of good intentions In the episode"And The Replacements". In one part at the Harlem Elementary PS 23 Comedy Awards Quintel received the Adam Sandler Award, given to the celebrity most likely to show up". Following that Quintel annoyingly remained in the show dressed up as Mordecai, cracking wise and uttering non sequiturs while constantly being given money by Cassie, the only black student explaining that "I can't help myself." The show further satirized him in a speech President Obama was addressing the nation saying he was going to watch "A JG Quintel show. I know it's embarrassing but I can't simply help myself." Finally in a surprise twist Quintel is forever buried, encased in steel saying "I'm very glad to hear the greatest threat to cartoons is now gone. Justice has been done."

What on earth is this all about? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.150.157.119 (talk) 16:47, 8 October 2012 (UTC)

Allegations of plagiarism

In early 2012 creator Jacob West filed suit against Quintel, complaining he stole material from his 2009 shows Invasion and Super Jail!. Marty Ross, Quintel's attorney, Suggested there was no need for her client to appropriate the work of others. Thecase was tried before Judge Carl Unruh in the US Eastern Court District of Michigan, returning an 8-0 verdict.
