It depends. It's nice to feel nostalgia, but if you let it blind you it's not good. And it's usually nostalgia that leads people to hate the now and just want to be in the past. Which is stupid. But yeah, nostalgia can make us not see the flaws of the past and see it as perfect.

Nostalgia is nice, but as I tell people, it ended for a reason.

Regular Show is ending.  The finale will premier soon.  It has been 7 years and over 200 episodes.  This, along with Adventure Time, was one of the core shows that propelled Cartoon Network's 2000s renaissance.

Indeed. Such good and whacky shows. They were definitely different and a lot of fun.

I liked Regular Show early on, the first season was them out edgy, but then it tamed itself for a more broad audience, due to Cartoon Network's wishes.  It lost it's adult themes.

Then the series went downhill, especially the last season when they went into outer space.  That is what essentially ended the show too, the ratings dropped to nothing when they took the park into space.  Cartoon Network announced less then two weeks later after premiering the new season, it was going to be cancelled at the end of the season.

Don't think so. I do know they did a kick ass reference or something for their intro. Or was that their last season finale...

Older Cartoon Network, the shows that started the revival.  Just before 2010, the revival year, you had shows like the Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack and Chowder.  Flapjack ended in 2010, the year Adventure Time came about, then Regular Show.

Chowder to me had it's moments, but it never broke out to be GREAT.  It was forgettable in the end, sadly, even though they tried to branch out a bit.  Cartoon Network ended it kinda fast like they did Flapjack, also doomed to be forgettable.  Both were good shows.  I would put Flapjack above Chowder, but both were good.  I enjoyed them.

Adventure Time was unique and fun when it was new, you wanted to know the mystery, but it got too predictable in it's unpredictableness.  Regular Show got too un-regular and lost the edgy-ness they had the first season.  Though Regular Show did a nice job with relationships, but dropped the ball big time in the final season where they ruined everything.  Shame.  AT and RS started good, and maybe would still be good, but for now, they are above average.  RS may have slumped to average... and at times below average.

My last note on Flapjack and tying it in with this show spawning success of others, it has Pendleton Ward, storyboard artist (created Adventure Time), J.G. Quintel, storboard artist and writer (created regular show), and Alex Hirsch - storybaord artist and writer (created Gravity Falls).  It started all their careers.

This final season is what screwed Regular Show too.  They noticed their ratings going down, so they risked it with this final season, and after the first premier of the new season, the show tanked, and Cartoon Network cancelled them.

Adventure Time hasp probably lost it's "premier status" it had on Cartoon Network and will probably end at the end of this year.  They will of course let it get a proper ending. 

We Bare Bears had a lot of promise, but I certainly haven't seen it get advertised like it used too. 

Mighty Magisword, I just can't see that doing well.

I find Chowder to be very funny.
It's not insightful or anything to grand, but it's a fun silly show that isn't overly stupid. And I still enjoy it today.
It was also probably one of the first cartoons that made me notice sneezing. That freaking Cinimini episode haha.

MagiMagiswords had a chance. Interesting idea. But then they uh..... Yeah. It's bad.

Adventure Time isn't promoted much anymore, but it will most definitely get a lot of advertisements leading up to the series premier, you can count on that.  It is now one of their longest running shows, 7 years.  It will be coming near Ed, Edd, and Eddy.

Damn. I thought they were gonna end it?
Also, I guess just people don't need to be advertised about it as its already a well known show.

Chowder had such a strange world they lived in.  It was pretty funny to see what they would come up with next.  A lot of imagination.

CN stopped advertising it for the most part because it isn't popular like it used to be, so they are promoting their new shows instead. Common when a show is on it's way out.
