    You're sure this isn't just another lie? >_>

    Hmm... That reminds me...

    Since Cartoon Network's part of Time Warner, and Warner Bros. is also part of Time Warner, and worse, Kids WB! also part of Time Warner, and if Time Warner is merging w/ CBS, and KidsWB! w/ UPN, and if the CBS portion is airing educational carcoons from DiC... yeah...

    You're right, rumor-goers... Well, partly right...

    Pokemon will have a tough time finding a new TV home in the USA, but it won't have as much a difficult time in the European world(where the "brand chemistry" is different than the US's "brand chemistry"... Remember that some games in Japan can't even make it Stateside because of "corporate conflicts") , or the US DVD world in that matter, and if this is true, then Pokemon will be "semi-cancelled" in the US almost 4-5 months after the "Secret of the Mirage Pokemon" special, but in Europe, and on DVD in the USA, Pokemon will still air, even after September, but given the attitudes in the Middle East against it(remember that Saudi Arabia is the most recent on the Pokemon "no-go" list), yeah, it will find a difficult time in finding a good spot in which re-runs on DVD will not be the only things that airs, as the spot that it finds will also air all-new episodes...

    Here's the sources I found explaining all my findings:

    Finding 1:


    Source 2.
    http://www.c21media.net/resources/detail.asp?area=79&article=29697

    Finding 2:
    Why are they ignoring the top-rated shows that mostly have little or no educational value in them in favor of low-rated shows that mostly have high educational value, and educational value is mostly that you could find enough of at school anyways, so what's the point of such shows being on 24/7? Sure, clog the kids' brains too early when they're not anatomically ready, I don't care what they think are appropriate for TV, but what I care about is getting what I need at the appropriate times: Learning at school, downtime at afternoon to nighttime... Still, an overwhelming majority trying to meddle with Pokemon by axing it from their schedules? That narrows down the possibilities of networks that Pokemon could air on to only three possibilities: ABC/Disney Channel/any other TV network owned by Disney, meaning Disney contains the only major TV outlet remaining(when all is said and done in September) that can air Pokemon(although nothing is official until agreements are signed), I'm guessing that Pokemon will possibly air via ABC Family to avoid SEC antitrust suspicions...

    Just remember this, Pokemon has survived seizures in it's homeland. Parents who scream "evil" and ten years in a cruel world. This kind of thing has become common and I am sure Pokemon will not heed. ;025;

    Not that it has anything direct to do with this thread, but here's the first shots of the shows that'll replace KidsWB's anime. Info/pics courtesy of Toonzone, of course.

    Something about the Scooby Doo/Shaggy picture that bugs me.

    If we're lucky maybe it will bug all the fans of the WB so much that they'll stop watching the channel and "CW" begs for Pokemon's return by offering a contract for an hour slot for the next five years, as well as a good bonus and/or/either raise in percent profit. ;025;

    That's if CW lasts. (I still don't know what it stands for. x_X)

    I don't see why they are trying to bring back old cartoons and make new ones. The old ones were good enough. Of course, it's probably for the money they want to have in their pockets.

    Let's all just lay back and watch what happens. I mean, it can't be THAT bad, even if it WEREN'T for that meddling boy and his dog! After all, for all we know, Pokemon could end up on a Network where we need Premium Cable to watch, and I don't have that, BELIEVE IT! If that happens, I'll have no choice but to buy the DVDs when they come out, either that or rely on Youtube for the shows.

    If it becomes a Premium Cable ONLY thing maybe Serebii will let us download the episodes from this site!? ;025;

    The design for the new Scooby-Doo look awful. That's what they want to replace poor Pokemon with?

    I edited the last line in your post because you were suggesting an illegal manner of viewing episodes. I replaced it with a legal one.

    And for the sake of everyone here, please learn some basic English and grammar. Punctuation too, while you're at it.

    Run on sentences are a no-no.

    Everything about the scooby doo picture doesn't look right. EVERY THING. I'm willing to bet that the kid's WB won't be around for much longer. Can't comment on Tom and Jerry but there won't be anymore explosives and is good about that show without it's explosives?

    I netural on this, but I still want to see Pokemon on TV. It has yet to die!

    Always with the petitions. Why not start a protesting, angry mob?

    From what I hear, the new show is going to be just as violent as the older cartoons, with anvils and explosions and all that.

    However I seriously doubt that Tom and Jerry will be much of a consolation prize. ;025;

    That's right. Give Jack Thompson more reason to think kids and gamers are idiots.

    Seriously, listen to what you're saying. Start a violent protest over a cartoon not being aired in the US. Think about that for abit before making another suggestion like that.

    As someone who grew up watching all kinds of Scooby Doo shows (go go 13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo), that offends me greatly. Its just...bad.
