Didn't stop them from airing Loonatics or Yu-Gi-Oh!. One show that's a complete insult to the Looney Tunes and another done by the worst dubbing group to currently work in anime. So that kind of logic is flawed.WheelerTheViper said:Maybe WB didn't want Pokemon anymore because thew new voices suck XD
Wow, Don Vito! I didn't know that was the last new first season episode they aired, the very first time around that they stared airing Pokemon. That is very interesting, because believe it or not, "The March of the Exeggutor Squad" was actually the first Pokemon episode I ever saw, and I was so young when I saw it that I didn't even know what Pokemon was back then.Don Vito said:I hope it does go back to syndication. It never should have left it in the first place IMO. Especially since it ended at a bad time (the last ep on synd was the ep where Charmander evolves)
Oh, wow. So that explains why the first episode of Pokemon I saw was, "March of the Exeggutor Squad", and also why I was able to see all the previous first season episodes after that. Interesting, I didn't know that. Thank you for telling me.Edward Elric said:
Uh, as far as I remember, it never left syndication at that time. They simply went into reruns until KidsWB picked it up.
It is another company, Hidden Mew, it's Miramax (which is a subsidiary of Disney). They help distribute the Pokemon movies.Hidden Mew said:I didn't know they distribute the movies. I thought that it was another company.
When I go to JAA over here, which is on June 10th (I know, I can't believe how long I have to wait, just to go to that event), I plan on asking a lot of questions about the future of the dub. And those questions will be ones related to which channel Pokemon will be on (in my area, and in other areas), and questions related to VA situation.may lover said:Oh well, maybe someone at JAA can give us more info.
Yes, frink. They've already aired seasons 1 through 5 (Master Quest).frink said:Rofl, didn't CN already have or had pokemon and failed? I don't know much because I only had basic cable and yeah.. but I do remember that they showed pokemon then stoped.
No, Silverchan.Silverchan said:But doesn't CN rarely air Pokemon now? I remember they used to air repeats every weekend or so.
Yes.Banette said:Is there only one episode a week now???????
Oh, so uh, what does that mean exactly, Captain Brain?Captain Brain said:I learned at JAA today that each area will have a different channel airing Pokemon, some areas though, may have the same channel. ;025;
Watch Pokemon will be on a channel that will air it at nine instead of ten, but still for an hour.Ninetales9 said:The only reason why I get up at 10 am on saturdays is to watch pokemon, so taking it out just means that I won't be having to get up so early on weekends any more. So I guess it's a good thing on my side, I just wanna see how they do cuz I know my behind is not getting up for those stupidass shows that they'll be showing. Trust me, they'll be losing a lot of ratings that the older kids that watch that block gives them. I just hope somebody picks the new season of pokemon cuz God knows I love me some pokemon lol.
No specifics were given as no contracts have been signed, Did say however to keep looking at pokemon.com for any maps/ updates.;025;Oh, so uh, what does that mean exactly, Captain Brain?
*is very confused now*
I mean, I live in the Pittsburgh area (I'm going to college here). So, for me, which channel do you or does someone else think it might come on?
And wait, so they didn't give you the name of any specific channel or network, Captain Brain?
Okay, that was really weird...... O_O
The former's got my vote.who wants to watch tom and jerry instead of pokemon ?
Saturday mornings have been dead since ABC was forced by TimeWarner to cancel Bugs Bunny and Tweety show nearly 6 years ago. I wouldn't expect today's movement to be reversed because of politically over-correct content regulations and greedy corporations who have a monopoly over the airwaves.This fall will be the death of Saturday morning cartoons as we know it.
"But WHERE?" is the question we're all asking. It doesn't look like we'll get a satisfactory answer any time soon.The show is being MOVED not canceled.
This is virtually the same reason why KidsWB's weekday block had to be removed."Animation and a new group of programs that comply with the government’s children’s education initiative.......this was a reason i saw on the site...LOL this is a really stupid idea"
Like I said earlier in this post, not anytime soon. On the PokeCommunity, I saw someone mentioned that mabye the upcoming MyNetworkTV or NBC could pick it up. I wouldn't see ABC/Disney/whatever pick it up since It wouldn't go with their already way-too dorky comedies (That's So Raven=barf)When will PUSA make an official announcement on the channel(s) that will be airing Pokemon.
I initially thought it was because of CBS Corporation's involvement in the new network.my guess is that CW is dropping almost every show that worked well, just because they want to have a "fresh start". it won't work.
How can anyone say that if they've not even began operations yet!?they are digging their own grave...
Makes you wonder why they had to take it away from syndication.Eh, Kids' WB/CW/whatever the phrack it is probably wasn't the best place for "Pokémon" anyway.
I thought they had exclusive control over the show until its production run finished.But anyways... isn't their contract up with WB?
Though IMO, I think it's nice to see Scooby and Tom & Jerry return to the airwaves once again.why not take off that bag of crud Johhny Test and Coconut Fred?
CBS used to be on channel 2 in Detroit (WJBK), and WKBD-50 (the current UPN outlet) ran Fox when that network started.Hmmmmmm? CBS is channel 2, at least in my area, and UPN is channel 9 (WB is 11) Are you sure CBS is involved in this? It seems a little odd to me.
WB said quite some time ago that they renewed it for until season 10 or 11 (I think)PokemonUSA could have very well begun dubbing Season 9 under the assumption that KidsWb would renew the show.
Or how about the old Superman and Popeye cartoons (made by Fleischer Studios, later foreclosed upon by Paramount Pictures and renamed Famous Studios)?I would. Original Bugs Bunny cartoons, too.
Or in the case of Detroit, and a few other places, the WB affiliate might have 4KIDStv. Back when Fox Kids was around, when WJBK, being owned by New World Communications, became FOX, they did not run FOX KIDS (neither did most other New World Comm stations, most of them former CBS affiliates also). WKBD, which previously had FOX, kept FOX KIDS, until moving over to a low-signal independent station shortly after.And even then, UPN doesn't air 4Kids TV on the same date as the rest of the US. Instead of Saturday mornings, anyone watching it on UPN gets these shows on Sunday mornings.
Then why would federal regulators allow (the new) Ma Bell to get BellSouth? (much less allow SBC to get AT&T, thereby reviving Ma Bell)Disney might not go for Pokemon because they already have its rival, Digimon, so it would be rejected under SEC regulations thanks to antitrust violations
Why not return it to over-the-air syndication then? (unless content regulations already outlawed that)Hopefully, CN or a good non-cable channel will be able to show Pokemon.
They are not acutally merging per se, the new CW is a joint venture between both companies.Time Warner is merging w/ CBS
Are you talking about "A Pup Named Scooby-Doo"?Unless they are going for the "younger Shaggy and co." thing. But didn't they already do one like that?
I somehow doubt it would be suitable for the big three.NBC, anyone? They're dumping Discovery Kids this fall. Whoever gets them will get INSTANT RATINGS!
