No. I have a big dislike of Avatar because the characters [except for the owl you've shown us] are ugly as hagsmire, and I don't watch it for that very reason. Just my opinion.
So you dislike them to the point of refusing to watch the show just because you think they look ugly? xD


Yeah, because I don't want my eyes to burn. XD

I know, amazing!

I don't understand why that show became so popular.

I do that all the time ^^ but I actually really liked the style of the characters and animals in that show, I thought they were all really creative and well done, and the music and artwork in that show were really good too, not to mention it ended up having a really good story line to it if you gave it a chance, but I guess its all with what you like xD those are just my opinions.

And friends, yes dear, and all of those other shows are good too ;3

I always liked how the animals looked in Avatar. Especially that owl and the Face Stealer or whatever he was called. (For some reason I really I liked him. Probably because he stole people's faces. xP)

Ko! Yeah, he was awesome XP He stole that monkeys face, haha.
The only thing I can think of that I really didn't like about avatar would be the names they gave the animals. "Platypus-Bear, Badger-Moles, Turtle-Ducks"...they could have been more original with them, but I guess they probably did that so that younger watchers would understand the animals they mixed (not that it wasn't really obvious already x3) Although, it was funny when they met the Earth King and his bear XD "Bear? You mean, just 'Bear'?...this place is weird..." lol!

OMG I loved that...=D

And it was pretty much this...

"The Earth King is having a party for his pet bear!"
"Surely you mean platypus bear"
"No...just bear."
"You mean badger-bear?"
"Armadillo -bear?"
"Skunk-bear?"
"..no...it just says....bear..."
"..."
"This place is wierd..."

XD
Lol, loved that.

And the centipede dude's name was spelled Koh, the owl is Wan Shi Tong, and my third fav character, the forest panda spirit, is Hai Bei (hey, bye). He's fluffy and monstrous....and fluffy!
I mean, really...you have to admit that a giant fluffy panda bear is cool enough, but the fact that it can turn into a giant, evil, human stealing monster is just plain cool =D

And what's wrong w/ Appa's arrow? XDDD
I hated the movie though...that was just...depressing...

I love Avatar! But the movie made my eyes bleed. I immediately went home and re-watched the first five episodes with Midnight.

And why do you guys think the charries are ugly...? Just because Aang is bald and he and Appa have arrow tattoos? I mean, it's one thing if you don't like the charrie design, but you just out and made fun of one of my favorite shows ever :I

I still watch that show on Nick2 sometimes...

And "Avatar" has three definitions. The third is the cyberspace icon thing. The other two fit perfectly:

1. A manifestation of a deity or released soul in bodily form on earth; an incarnate divine teacher

2. An incarnation, embodiment, or manifestation of a person or idea


I love the storyline and the art....if you actually took the time to watch it instead of blatantly insult it, you'd realize that there's actually a very rich and amazing plot behind it.


Also, here's amazing fan-trailer for a movie (I wish the movie was actually like this).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ie3mX550N84


Oh, and about 2:53, you can hear Wan Shi Tong (the owl) speak. He says: "You think you're the first person who thinks their war was justified?"
I loved his character...

BTW, a bit of cool info:
Wan Shi Tong literally means, "He Who Knows a Thousand Things." In Chinese mythology, the number 1000 is basically equivalent to infinity, everything. So it basically means, "He Who Knows Everything".
