>>15983>How many popular shows recently do self inserts? I know Gravity Falls is (hence the weak ending), but I didn't know Regular show was.
Depends on how tight your definition of a self-insert is.
For example, in The Amazing World of Gumball, Richard, Nicole and Anais are named after Ben Bocquelet's family (similarly to all the Simpsons except Bart being named after Matt Groening's family). I don't know if that would qualify. Danny Antonucci considers Ed, Edd and Eddy all parts of his personality, but I don't think that would count either. It would have to go beyond mere inspiration.
I say Regular Show with confidence because Mordecai is basically J G Quintel just using his normal voice with a bit of extra emotion. Commentary for The Power extremely-related. Plus Mordecai is an awkward art-school grad which I suspect is either JG or an exaggeration of him.
HAHAHA HOLY SHIT I just remembered. I haven't watched the new Powerpuff Girls (2016) which is apparently an atrocity, but it's believed that this guy, this crazy motherfucker
, managed to self-insert himself as a romantic ship for a kindergartner.
I can't say I've watched many new shows I someone else would have to answer how common self-inserting is.
