Pitch a Cartoon!

This studio is for talking about ideas you may have for a cartoon.
You can also visit this studio about the same thing where I have uploaded a template that includes places for character bios, concept art, and model sheets.
Rules:

Ideas must be at least 50% original. you are allowed to take inspiration from other cartoons, but no copies, and no glorified fanfictions.

Pitch a Cartoon!

Woohoo, time to pitch my cartoon!

OK so here's my hopefully 50% original idea (no stealing, people, or you'll have an army of angry ducks to answer to). A small paper-eating bear lives in a telephone box on a London street. The bear likes to think he is a musical genius and has built a piano out of said telephone and a few old coins. Various people hear the music and try to break into the phone box, but the innocent little bear tends to accidentally… solve the problem, in Scratch-friendly terms (a small amount of *ketchup* may be present in the full finished animation which probably won't be shared on Scratch). In reality, the bear is very lonely and dreams of the day when a phone call will actually be addressed to him (until then, his only companion in the phone box, which he is too afraid to leave, is a sock named Emmeline). In the final episode, this may or may not actually happen, but there is a twist…

Well, that's my rather undeveloped idea for a cartoon. Hope you liked it, or at least didn't hate it

I said 50% original. not 100% original, because there is no such thing.
cmon lets hear the rest of it

Two friends fight off evil forces-

Two friends work as polices-
Wait, nevermind, that had been done before.

Two friends work as detectives-
Wait, nevermind, that had been done before.

Two friends get into troubles-
Wait, nevermind, that had been done before.

Two friends in space-
Wait, nevermind, that had been done before.

Two friends which are almost a couple-
Wait, nevermind, that had been done before.

Two friends who are nothing alike-
Wait, nevermind, that had been done before.

Two friends who are-
Wait, nevermind, that had been done before.

Here's mine:

A teenage girl sits on a tree stump playing her ocarina-
Oh wait, that is from Zelda!

Okay, here's mine:

GouT, The Powerpuff Grls and Cringe-Link-
Oh wait, that's the (non-existent) bootlegs movie!

Don't get discouraged. nothing can truly be 100% original, and these ideas are only the groundwork for a show and they can be built upon to make something more original. two friends, who fight off evil forces? adventure time, but also svtfoe, regular show, and a whole lot of others. would you say any of these cartoons are remotely the same? not really. you're focusing too much on the groundwork for the cartoon being original but since thats hard and it doesn't really matter. what does matter is what you build on top of that groundwork. so let's improvise an idea. Two friends in space… (now you add to this)

Insanity Madness:

It's not really a cartoon, but a future Scratch series.

It's basically characters reacting to bootlegs.

Here's my idea for a show called “The Wing Guard: Shadow of the Nightbringer”.
Chickens in a peaceful world in which they are pretty much the humans of the world, accidentally awake the Nightbringer, a cursed chicken made of smoke. A few brave residents of Chookheart Village form a group called the Wing Guard. It's their job to defend chickenkind against the Nightbringer, and defeat him eventually.

Huh, how'd this stone bowl get here?

Pitch a Cartoon!

Cousins Barney and Larnigin (Larnie), are growing up living with Barney's aunt Caroline, who is Larnie's Mother. They also work as “agents” for the government, performing missions such as infiltrating bases of wanted criminals, and spying on possible suspects for terroristic acts. They do this under the watchful eye of Agent Edna, who still thinks this was a bad idea, despite the fact that Barney and Larnigin are trained in using various weapons.
