Is it unpopular to still prefer Clarence to We Bare Bears?

Because if so, then I definitely don't want to join the popular opinion.

I like both shows a lot, but I don't know which of the two is more popular with people. Might be Clarence because its been around a bit longer but I don't know.

My general opinion of WBB is that it's best when it focuses on the three interacting together. I'm less hot on the episodes when they're separated and do their own thing. It can be a really fun show, but sometimes only registers at just okay for me.

I'm in the camp that prefers Clarence myself. I enjoy WBB a good deal too, though.

I'm not sure if this is the right thread for this, but there's been something that I've been thinking about for a while-

I think we're no longer in an age where Batman: TAS is a major influence. Action cartoons aren't really being made anymore, and when they are, they feel closer to Marvel's recent stuff, Teen Titans Go! or even 80's cartoons rather than something like the DCAU or Avatar. It already feels like Korra was from a different period, and a lot of the shows that were hot when it premiered are still on!

We're still feeling the importance of The Simpsons, especially as adult animation is appreciating character again, while the reliance on creators and showrunners for the Nicktoons is still going strong. But we're already pretty far removed from what Batman, Gargoyles, Avatar etc were doing.

I'm of the opinion that those who grew up on BTAS, Gargoyles, Avatar (the good one), and other such cartoons, did not go into animation but to other mediums. It certainly shows in what is being made nowadays.

Sooner or later action animation will have a major comeback. Don't know where it will spring off of, might be Netflix but I don't think this action drought will last forever.
