The Amazing World of Gumball To End After Season Six

The Amazing World of Gumball To End After Season Six

The Amazing World of Gumball To End After Season Six: My Opinion and Thoughts

Note: This is my opinion, suggestions and possibilities are not facts.

Yesterday (07/09/2016), The creator of The Amazing World of Gumball – Ben Bocquelet, announced that he will be leaving the show’s production team after Season Six to pursue other projects. The departure of Ben Bocquelet at the end of season six casts a shadow of doubt about the future of the show. The show will end at the end of season six, but there is still a chance that it can continue or be revived at a later date. Gumball will always be remembered for its wide array of art styles, imaginative cast of characters and the cheeky mischievous antics of a blue cat named Gumball Watterson and his unusual (but at times normal) dysfunctional family.

A total of six seasons is an excellent run for an animated series, with most Cartoon Network classics in the late 1990’s to early 2000’s such as Dexter’s Laboratory and Cow and Chicken only had four seasons. In all fairness, I’d rather finish the show with a high note and be remembered as a classic rather than let it carry on without the original creator’s intentions and input. I’d like to know about Great Marlborough Studios’ future in London though, will it be used for Apple and Onion (or another show) if it becomes an animated show?

The news follows the announcement of Regular Show ending, which also had another excellent run of eight seasons (only one other Cartoon Network show has reached this milestone and that’s Adventure Time), Mark Hamill (voice of Skips) announced the news last month. Regular Show was the one show (apart from Gumball) that made the most impact on me and was the reason I started watching Cartoon Network again, the show appealed to older audiences and had an Adult Swim (but kid friendly) edge to it, Mordecai and Rigby are in their 20’s, in a weird age gap that’s not teenaged or mature adults, they’re trying to become independent adults and also because of the retro cultural references, so that’s why the show related to me.

Obviously, Regular Show is where the name of this blog originated from, I won’t rename the blog after the show ends. In a lighter note, I’m looking forward to the Regular Show in Space story arc which will start on Monday 26th September on Cartoon Network USA.

The other show that will end is Uncle Grandpa, this show had four seasons, but I believe this show was very underrated. I really liked the surreal, nonsensical and unexpected humour in the show, shame that it didn’t reach the same level of interest as Adventure Time or Regular Show.

In conclusion, there isn’t anything to worry about shows ending, everything has to end, I want animated shows to be remembered as creative forms of entertainment and not renewed for the sake of it or to force the production team against their own will to produce something that has been exhausted from any new ideas. I’m very sure Cartoon Network Studios have lots of ideas for the future, a whole list of shows have come and gone within the channel’s 24 year history and it continues to win Emmys and BAFTAs for producing excellent shows; it’s certain that the trend will continue.

These shows will be gone but they won’t be forgotten.
