I love love that these are dark without being like ~twisted~ ~evil~ whatever portrayals. Like, these are all straight-up moments from their stories but they’re haunting and sinister and wonderful.

L25 “Ocean Sun” (first photo) is estimated to be 83 years old and she is presumed to be the mother of Tokitae (aka: Lolita), a female orca captured in 1970 and taken all the way across the continent to Miami.
Tokitae resides to this day at the Miami Seaquarium, performing shows day in and day out. Tokitae is the second oldest orca in captivity, and shows amazing resilience, given her deplorable living conditions (I think the aerial view of her tank in Miami speaks for itself).
Ocean Sun has now outlived her family members (except Tokitae), and now spends most of her time with a large male orca L41 “Mega” and his sisters (last photo, Ocean Sun is the orca second nearest to the camera with a beautiful open saddle patch).
To think that Tokitae could remember her family, or that Ocean Sun may remember her daughter or the day that she was taken away, is tragic beyond measure. These animals are so amazing and intelligent, we have barely scratched the surface when it comes to knowing their mental capacity. The following video of Tokitae responding to vocalizations of her family in the ocean breaks my heart. I don’t want to draw conclusions, but it is tempting to think that she is remembering her family when listening to them.

There was something awesomely understated about The Weekenders. Maybe it’s the fact that one of the few cartoons where the main characters wear something different on three consecutive days in every episode. Maybe it’s because it’s a show about four friends (two guys and two girls) where the two girls regularly pass the Bechdel test with ease. Or maybe it was one of the last great One Saturday Morning cartoons Disney churned out.
But yeah. I really liked The Weekenders.
I think the appeal is that it was a cartoon that while having zany moments never strayed into complete ridiculousness and the characters feel like actual people, including adults. I would also say that it’s also because the writers do not talk down to their audiences.
They had really great episodes too, like the time when Lor (I think it’s spelt that way) tried to change herself to impress a guy by trying to become like a model who barely ate anything. This show was awesome.
#LET ME TELL YOU A THING #I really seriously fucking loved Weekenders as a kid #and even now I regularly re-watch the show #because even years after the first airing THIS SHOW REGULARLY HITS HOME #it’s spectacularly written #the characters are so real and so relatable #it’s hilarious as fuck without being slapstick gross or immature #it regularly and tastefully tackles things that people don’t get right even now#they have single parents dating and kids trying to deal with that#they have trying to change yourself for someone you like (and finding out you don’t have to)#they regularly broke stereotypes and tropes by introducing 3 dimensional characters#they have a nerdy girl and a sporty girl and a guy who’s obsessed with looks and shoes#AND IT’S NEVER PORTRAYED AS SOMETHING TO BE ASHAMED OF OR SOMETHING TO RIDICULE#it’s just who they ARE#it’s literally about four friends hanging out and going through life#it’s just honestly one of the most well-written well-rounded and hilarious slice of life kind of cartoons out there#EVER#I’m not even shitting you#If you’ve never watched The Weekenders you are missing out on so much#GO WATCH IT NOW
