"Roughly 10 hours before it was supposed to air, DC Nation and it's programming
(with Green Lantern the Animated Series, Young Justice, and the Amethyst Princess
of Gemworld and Thunder and Lightning shorts) set to air, it was abruptly pulled
from network schedules. Neither DC nor Cartoon Network has made any announcements
of why it occurred, and DC Nation has summarily been pulled from the entire month
of October. Attempts made to contact either entity have been met with silence.
Not even the producers of the shows were told beforehand, with most learning later
on from distraught fans, who were unable to become 'traught'."

They better have a real good and I mean REAL GOOD Excuse for this sudden BS move :shrug:

Great. The two watchable shows on Cartoon Network and the suits have to pull them. Kids animation is going further down the tube, with everything else.

I'd complain, but to be honest, I found the DC Animation Block to be kinda hit and miss. Which is kind of a good thing, seeing as there were still hits in the bunch. That Hong Kong Batman short was straight-up astonishing, my jaw dropped on my nuts at the end of that one (yes, hurts as much as it sounds). I thought the Super Best Friends Forever series was very well handled, Teen Titans still kept a bit of its humanist flair, and that one short with Plastic Man using himself to create a mugshot was quite clever. There are stand-outs in the whole lineup, stand-outs that made watching worth it. And if it wasn't hit and miss, I wouldn't get that feeling of reward after a genuinely good one. The misses, despite their terribleness, just made the gems all that more sweeter.

And what do the gems mean? That they had the ability to make stuff that was legitimately good. They had the ability to make great stuff, and with another collection in the works, hopefully they can learn from what didn't work to make more stuff that does work. I'm really interested to see how this year's assortment pans out, and although it sucks that it's been pushed back to January, they'd better believe I'm still going to watch the crap out of it.

It's like an abusive relationship, Cartoon Network and I. They torture me with these three-month waits for the stuff I really really want, and like some masochistic pushover I let them without question. I can grumble about them as much as I want, but as long as they're getting my butt in that sofa tuned in to them, it doesn't matter how many kittens I dropkicked whilst cursing their name; they still won. If it's any consolation, it'll give me some more time to catch up while Archer, Pony, and Justified get started on their next seasons...

My hat is off to you! :bow:
Excelent point of comparison.

Indeed, the treatment that these networks give to their audiences and the people working for them ( And making the Money ) is exactly as the one of an abusive relationship, down to the core.

Couldnt have said it better.

But to put things in perspective, the actual hurt from a real abusive relationship is sufficiently paramount to a Saturday morning cartoon getting knocked back a couple months in the schedule. The key point being this very unfortunate truth...cable networks can get away with mistreating their viewers because their viewers let them. The viewers can complain about it as much as they want, but as long as they keep tuning in to them (and they do), it enables cable channels to continue acting this way.

Notice, in not a single spot in this, do I encourage a boycott of Cartoon Network. That's why I call it an unfortunate truth. Because no matter how frustrating this is, I'll be right back to it, and if someone actually did encourage me to take a stand and that we collectively hit them where it hurts, well...that's nice and all but I've still got Adventure Time. I've still got Regular Show. I've still got Toonami and Robot Chicken. I'm not hurt enough for me to throw them away when they can still do alright with me on other shows. Sure, I want to send a message, I want to speak in the language of money (the language they hear loudest), but the unfortunate truth is that it's not worth it to me.

So I let 'em.

You know what really jostles me and makes me not so ticked? Actually makes me kind of happy?

Come February, we'll only be a quarter of the way through...yet if it started this week, it would already be done. Sounds like it's rearrangement on the calendar would make it the perfect bridge between Archer and Breaking Bad.

Not confirmed, but the official word is that all crew are not working on it at the moment. However there is speculation that since the toyline didn't really move until it was on clearence, they didn't think it was profitable. They really didn't care about the ratings, they just wanted to sell toys.

WB owns DC. That's all you need to know.

Plus those cartoons are shitty anyway, and could use your brand of style to infuse some new blood in that decaying 90s crap.

Btw I tried to watch Batman: the Dark Knight Returns, Part 1.

Stopped after 10 minutes. Why? Shitty animation/design. I don't want some tv budget crap ruining one of the very greatest graphic novels of all time.

Frank Miller's art wasn't technically great, but it had mood and atmosphere, unique for 1986. The 90s Batman animated series totally doesn't work for that story.

So, good riddance to those shows.

Oh wow, yeah, totally trolling. Whew, got me there. Pretty awesome exposition of sarcasm to juxtapose the backwards mindset of Cartoon Network's executive direction, too. Because that's certainly the words of somebody with impossible standards and zero appreciation for top-tier classic animation; words uttered to simply get a rise and mark a tick on their hipster club card. Seriously, awesomely played, that was beautiful.

Not a trolljob.

I expressed my aesthetic judgment on some substandard animation and a failed adaptation.

That you or anyone else mislike my judgment and call it trolling or hipster nonsense says less about me and more about your argumentum ad hominem tactics.

Virgil's advice is worthy here:
Whenever you encounter cranks, just nod, smile and keep walking. :)

I too found myself quite confused. At any rate, I don't think that all the DC shows have been scrapped, perhaps they will just be moved or re-purposed? My guess would be that they want to do display a chunk of Halloween themed things due to the month in question. That's what I HOPE it is at least.

wow CN again fucking up. I never really had any real expectations for DC Nation, dont get me wrong I love DC comics and the shows i have the dvds, and comics and figures, etc. But when CN started all the hype for DC Nation I was dissapointed that all they had to star with was 2 shows. Yes they had the minnie shorts they they ran out of them to. DC Nation should been what saturday morning cartoons used to be.

Its amazing how Disney has so much support for their Marvel cartoons and CN whos gonna be the host of all DC cartoons doesnt do shit. But hye lets see what happens

Crap like this is actually standard operating procedure for CN when they want to get rid of a show: yank it off at the last minute, don't tell anyone, hope everybody forgets by the time their next NEWAWESOMECARTOON starts up...usually because it doesn't sell any merchandise.

But seriously, I don't buy the notion that those shows weren't doing well in the ratings. This reeks of either some sort of contract issue or someone at CN feeling they need to throw their weight around and prove they're in charge.

I just got back from a long day of work, a ten hour long shift, while being sick to boot, but I sat down and let out a sigh of relief when I got home because I knew I had the DC Nation shows on DVR to cheer me up. And what do I see when I turn it on? Cartoon Networks Dragon show. I don't know what their reasoning may be for taking these shows off the air, but f' them for whatever it is.

From what I've been hearing, not even DC knew about the programming being pulled...whether that's true or not I can't say, but it wouldn't be the first time Cartoon Network did something like this. When Transformers Animated was being broadcast, apparently CN execs just started walking through and firing staff working on TFA before the animators and producers even heard the show was getting canned by CN. Cartoon Network probably pulled DC Nation because it was better than any of the other shit they've been airing lately.
