          The VA for Izzy also voices Sheila on South Park. Cartoon boomers are okay with Digimon. I think it's more the monsters can talk giving them time to cut loose when they're not shilling Disney.

      You mean television before cable?
      Friendly reminder that cable originally ad-free, which was the whole point; pay a bit of money every month to get 24/7 programming without breaks.

      The only classic stuff Boomernang airs on the standard 60s HB stuff, Scooby Doo, Popeye at like 1AM, some Tom and Jerry, and a really really bad package of Looney Tunes cartoons.
      On the Looney Tunes cartoons, only recently did they actually change the lineup to add in more pre-1945 stuff and black and white stuff

      Why don’t they just fix boomerang and put all this on there?

      This.

      [...]
      Everyone is well aware of this. And it makes zero fricking sense for BOOMERang to have all this the homosexual 00s shit on it.

      So...basically Boomerang?

      Boomerang is owned by Warner, which only owns the rights to Hanna Barbera and (obviously) Warner Bros stuff.

      Boomerang plays old Cartoon Cartoons now because nobody watched the old HB stuff anymore. So they're trying to appeal to 30-something millennials in the same way they were trying to appeal to 30-something Gen Xers back when they first created the channel.

          Cable killed itself in its hubris. If they had stuck with the original business model they'd still have a niche and be competitive against streaming services. But they didn't and now look at them.

            Anonymous

            It's not even just that they needed to stick to the original model; cable got super expensive later and people were actually cutting it out in favor of piracy and streaming. They could have won super easily if they had stayed the course, developed new streaming services as auxiliary offerings, and not immediately got in bed with Netflix. Starving them of content would have forestayed the rise of streaming, since Cox On Demand had actual shows even if it wasn't as convenient.

            Even Netflix today can't make anything worthwhile or turn a profit, because this mega merger giant conglomerate system doesn't work. It just looks big, but it falls at the slightest inconvenience. The industry will have to divest and spin itself off into forty new companies to survive properly.

            Commercials are what rung cable's death knell, just like it'll ring the knell for streaming. The reason streaming got so big in the first place is because, like cable originally, it had no adverts. Now that streaming services are decentralising and are getting stuff with commercials like cable did, people are abandoning them and just going back to piracy and using adblockers on YouTube.

            >Boomerang is owned by Warner, which only owns the rights to Hanna Barbera and (obviously) Warner Bros stuff.
            well they also own the MGM animation library and a decent chunk of the Fleischer/Famous shorts too thanks to various buyouts and mergers

            Ted Turner bought MGM pretty much exclusively to get the rights to the old cartoons, same reason he bought Hanna Barbera. Always thought that was pretty funny.

            Ted was such a funny character. He's probably done the most damage to American society of any media mogul (even Murdoch) but you have to admire the eccentricity and the guts to actually do that stuff to begin with. I only wish he had pulled people away from GE's New York and Disney's California to Atlanta, since that's the obvious next big place for movies and TV.

            Still, though, I guess one good thing about Netflix is that it woke people up from cable's fleecing and has turned an entire nation into pirates.

            The former created a nice rarefied forum for the post-Watergate preacher-journalists to pat themselves on the back as suckers continued to take their opinions as fact even as their objectivity and even relatability dwindled, and the latter tried to transplant the British media caste system to America despite he himself being unable to benefit from it in Britain and Australia. It's not so much that they created right or left wingers as political orcs that refused to think about anything beyond what the media told them. They're Trotskyites, not nazi enablers.

            The big three networks or public news aren't much better, but at least you have some more say with them than a conglomerate like CNN or Fox lets you have. They're the enablers that will cling to the madness of this age even as it comes crashing down around them because the future scares them more than it scares you.

            If it weren't for Turner and Murdoch, television would consist of the Big Three (CBS, NBC, ABC), PBS, and PPV cable channels like HBO. Turner practically invented basic cable by creating a system that didn't rely on local affiliates, and Murdoch kicked open the door for viable alternative channels to the Big Three.

            Their disruption was great, I'm not denying that, but the consequences of it were that society was poisoned by these neo-absolutist media conglomerates who had no desire to do good for the stakeholder. In other countries with more sensible media and society landscapes there's only the pre-CNN style of media, and it works. If you want to reform it, it's easier to go with that than CNN or Fox because those can accommodate new developments without collapsing.

            Now I know you're full of shit. In other parts of the world, media is wholly owned and controlled by their central government and the public at large is held at gunpoint to fund the state propaganda apparatus through things such as television licenses. The american method is significantly more decentralised and thus less susceptible to lockstep biases. It took decades of government regulation and intervention before the American media landscape began to take on the machinations of the European one, wherein it's merely a vehicle to push whatever narrative the state is currently shilling for. That was the MO from day one in countries like France and the UK where commercial broadcasting was outright banned until fairly recently.

            No, he bought MGM because he legitimately wanted the studio.
            Then he after he bought it, he realized he had blown basically all his money to get it, sold it and kept their whole back catalogue, not just their cartoons.

            The big media companies were always going to try and kill off cable themselves anyway. Once infrastructure and service costs became manageable, why let a middleman service provider profit off of your content? Going direct-to-consumer also opened the door to mass global scale in a far easier way.

            Disney in particular are obviously pushing their DTC stuff to hurt cable companies. There's no real reason they can't run their D+/Hulu originals on linear/TV Everywhere, but they choose against doing so to encourage people to ditch those services. They also culled hordes of their international channels, even if they were still relatively popular.

            I guess that's fair, but the individual streaming service plus massive conglomerate model doesn't work more than when Netflix does it. It's not sustainable and the ads will never make it profitable, so the best they can do is free to air and ad supported free streaming, possibly linear. Unless they want to live in the world where over fifty percent of the market is pirating their shit a la India, Latin America, and Russia.

        It's funny, because I've seen a good handful of younger people on twitter talking about Hanna-Barbera and Looney Tunes characters over the past couple of years. There's even some "stan" and "simp" cultures towards certain characters, as weird as that sounds. WB must've realized the recent, untapped market, hence the team-up with MeTV.

        Still unfortunate for Boomerang though.

          There’s definitely a young online fandom for these, even the HB shows, and they could easily grow further this way
          But there’s also a significant part that are into shipping the characters. You’re far more likely to find a Baffy or Snaggleberry shipper in those fandoms then not, and they might intensify if there’s more easy access to the originals

      Disney is very bizarre for its mystique with its brands and particularly its shorts. Disney doesn't even really want you to see them now, either due to thinking they are offensive or wanting to present its core characters in a different light so that they protect marketability the way they want it.
      When the shorts are uploaded to Disney+ its a handful more to remind you "hey these characters exist go buy their merch".
      Hell Disney is restrictive overall who they market from main brand. Really now it's the main six, Pete, Chip n Dale, Scrooge, HDL and Oswald for non-theatrical characters. Then they marketed a number of the animated film characters that have some likability. Outside that, literally nothing else exists to them

            Filcher studios (quality wise) was the only studio that could compete with Disney. There stuff is great. They were at least ambitious enough to put there hat into the ring. And even though those two films are decent at best, the animation is still gorgeous.

            I think the biggest issue they'll face is how much they'll rely on a single external partner (Warner) and the dearth of notable non-Disney or Warner boomer toons. If WB, for whatever reason, decides they want out of this venture, what would happen to this channel? They'd basically have to target the "newer" stuff and cut deals with smaller players or shutdown.

            With live-action shows, there's a tonne of content, a bunch owned by indies and even the bigger companies don't necessarily see huge value in them.

            Funny enough when people look at their 30s style of animation, lots of people only see these weird Super floaty spastic rubberhose style of animation that even Disney was starting to slowly but surely phased out, and around 1937 trough 1942 Disney was at its best with their "Hyper realistic style" and even some of their shorts got some of that treatment while still a bit more cartoony, all with Snow white, Pinocchio, Fantasia and Bambi, but sadly WWII happened and that become a burden since Fantasia and Bambi were box office flops at the time, hence Dumbo had more "standard short style animation", specially considering that Bambi came out aftetwards.

            Meanwhile, the Fleischer Popeye color trilogy of Sinbad, 40 thieves and Magic Lamp, animation wise was still stuck in the early 30s betty boop floaty rubberhpuse style, kind to think of it, WB with Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies were still sorta in that spot outside of Chuck Jones early "sorta disney pastiche style" which even so it had its own look but wasnt working for the company andndint have as much fluidity and timing as 37-41 Disney, fleischer later got good with Superman because they had too for it, but even then, i would argue, the only ones who truly got close to Disney's 37-41 era were MGM with Happy Harmonies and then with Tom and Jerry which were their own beast and a very powerful one.

            But, could you imagine if Betty Boop wasnt gutted bt the Hays code and we hot some Disney Style animation with her? or even Popeye?

            The one who was mimicking tge Fleischer style of weirdness and madness was in fact, pre 40s Bob Camplett which was wacky but endearing, before in the 40s took this grotesque (but sometimes still funny) style in the 40s.

            Frick man. A beautifully animated sexy Betty boop with the animation quality of golden age Disney would have been the best thing sense the wheel. The haze code ruined everything (not too mention comics). Bonus question. What would happen if we were to be forced into another thing like the haze code? Would people car enough too fight back?

            Ok, me being horny for imaginary realistic Betty boop aside, filcher style wise, was very outdated by the time the late 30's came along. Even still, most people still think of the rubber hose style for most of the 30's today. Which is odd, because WB and Disney were becoming more successful because they were changing and evolving.

            Popeye would have thrived with this kind of animation quality. The smoother animation would have given the gags and scenes much more potential to set up interesting setups. I like too dumb the black and white rubber hose animations as the "stop and go" style. I call rubber hose that because characters would do this not like movement. They would do one big gesture, then stop, then do it again. Like, if Popeye were to point at something, he would do a quick snappy point, then stop, thendo the snappy point again. I'm not sure if that makes too much sense, but it's always how I saw it. With this Mickey cartoon here, instead of stopping and going, Mickey and Pluto flow much more naturally. They say they move wouldn't be too out of place too see in real life. And despite mick keeping a rubber hose each style, hes eyes and plush doll body give him more room too emote through his movements, rather then big exaggerated poses. Like you said before, loony tunes kind of did a mix of both the rubber hose style of animation, and the smoother, more realistic Disney style. Looney tunes characters would still do extreme big gestures, but the animation had more subtle touches of realism too them.

            Me really trying to imagine Betty and Popeye with Disney animation is a real rough thing too visualize if I'm going to be frank. But it could absolutely work. So I think Betty boop in particular would have had to get a different character design for that to work.i guess you could still pull it off with her original character design, but I don't think it would have looked right. Popeye wouldn't have had much trouble transitioning though. Even with his exaggerated character design, you could still make it work. I think you would just have too tone down the arms a wee bit.

      Paramount’s lending a hand in this venture so there may be some hope

      • 4 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        Paramount doesn't appear to be involved.

        It's a WB / MeTv joint venture

        MeTV also has a deal with Universal for Woody Woodpecker. WB has been dancing around working more with Universal too.

        Rocky & Bullwinkle is still owned by Jay Ward's estate, but managed by Wildbrain (aka Cookie Jar aka DiC)

        The Betty Boop stuff they air is mostly public domain, but the Fleischer estate has been working with MeTv on restorations and making special premieres of the ones they still own.

        Speed Racer is its own separate deal, but might be handled by Sony now? Sony works with MeTv for the Columbia Pictures/Screen Gems Cartoon Rhapsody airings

        Paramount's only thing that would fit the criteria would be Mighty Mouse and the other Terry Toons. Maybe Garfield could slide in but Paramount's model seems to be 24/7 channels for Garfield, TMNT, Dora and Spongebob on PlutoTV

      Because this is a cheaper way of doing it.
      Weigel handles all the broadcast tech.
      There's some kind of joint split on the ad revenue between WB and Weigel.

      Boomerang is a cable channel wholly maintained by WB and cable is dying and carriage fees are going away. Even if WB maintained Boomerang exactly how you want it, it'd lose money over time.

      It's the same reason they're pulling stuff from Max and licensing it back to Netflix and Tubi. It's easier and more cost effective to get paid a licensing fee for your archives than invest in maintaining a channel/platform on your own.

        Yeah, Tatsunoko got the full rights to Speed Racer and Samurai Pizza Cats back, that's why no American company has done anything with the IP since Tatsunoko won't let any American touch Speed Racer again after what they did in the past, just air their shows

    For all the people who might dislike this. Remember what you want is Tooncast. Which aired cartoons from all eras just before the 2010's so you can have more variety. This is its current line-up (which actually changes from time to time):
    >What's New Scooby-Doo?
    >Maguila Gorilla
    >Krypto, the Superdog
    >The Jetsons
    >Thundercats

    >Tom & Jerry Kids
    >Baby Looney Tunes
    >Looney Tunes

      They should have tried to grow their value instead of focusing on cutting costs.
      I feel like CN and AS both had their heyday when they were liberal with letting people try stuff. Of course they couldn't do stuff that was too expensive, but being a little more liberal with your IPs helps creators make something appealing without breaking the bank.
      But now that licensing hypothetically makes so much sense to hoard, you can't let some people in the promo department make neat bumpers out of some cheesy 60s superhero show.
      On top of that, they fell into the same trap that Nickelodeon did where everyone had to reach the bar of their current breadwinner, so if you weren't Spongebob/Rick and Morty/Teen Titans Go, you were dead meat.
      Bad times for cartoons now. Hope its better times for cartoons in the future with this.

I know Shaggy, Velma, Bugs, Marvin, Taz, and Tom & Jerry are already in, but having Fred Flintstone, Popeye, The Mask, Secret Squirrel, Top Cat, Dick Dastardly, Wile, Yosemite Same, Freakazoid, Captain Planet, Oni, and Ricochet would be pretty damn neat too. Maybe Rocky & Bullwinkle and Woody Woodpecker too if they get the okay from Universal.

      MeTV has been the #1 digital broadcast network for years off of constant boomer reruns, alongside it's various sister channels which also have constant boomer reruns with different flavors. "Toon In With Me" alone manages to pull about a million viewers per episode. That's a pretty impressive feat for a show that damn near airs at the ass crack of dawn.

      This channel will do just fine. Now stop being a negative Nancy and be more of a positive Polly. okay, buddy? 🙂

      I think the biggest issue they'll face is how much they'll rely on a single external partner (Warner) and the dearth of notable non-Disney or Warner boomer toons. If WB, for whatever reason, decides they want out of this venture, what would happen to this channel? They'd basically have to target the "newer" stuff and cut deals with smaller players or shutdown.

      With live-action shows, there's a tonne of content, a bunch owned by indies and even the bigger companies don't necessarily see huge value in them.

If WB, for whatever reason, decides they want out of this venture, what would happen to this channel? They'd basically have to target the "newer" stuff and cut deals with smaller players or shutdown.

        If this was a decade ago I'd agree, but there's also another factor to consider:

        WB has a lot of cartoons in the public domain.
        A lot of Fleischer/Famous cartoons are in the public domain as well (various Popeyes, all of the Superman cartoons, etc).
        By 2029 there will be more cartoons going PD. Even if Disney doesn't play ball there's at least 100 Disney shorts that will be PD by that time, a lot of them Mickey. And by 2029, works from 1933 go PD which includes the first year of Fleischer Popeye cartoons.

        WB does have a lot riding on this because they want to raise money and get the characters out there because they finally realized people at WB fricked up by walling them behind a cable paywall. I assume the worst case scenario is that MeTV would give up on it and just air PD cartoons with cartoons from whichever licensor they're working with.

          Freakazoid is from 1995, they previously aired Looney Tunes shorts from the 90s, Duck Dodgers and Xialon Showdown are both from 2003 so those are some of the most recent shows on the lineup

          Toon In With Me has the cartoons for 50+ year olds locked down, it's fine for them to experiment a bit to see if they can get more 30-40s.

          Like I said, as long as they keep it a mix and not completely ditch/hide the older stuff over time. Obviously they need to made room for fresh content now and then but they can still keep the blocks balanced.

        I can see Cartoon Cartoons happening, but only if Weigel is willing to pay. Those are massively popular and are center on Adult Swim's block now, so outside maybe the center programs here in Looney Tunes and Tom and Jerry they are probably the most expensive out of any show here to acquire rights for
        Obviously anything Viacom or Disney is out, so is Pink Panther since Amazon yanked it away

          Somewhat similar
          The character of Quick Draw himself isn’t banned, he appears in merch and shows (with some variations) still. But it appears (and I’m rumoring since no one discusses about this) the original show itself has gotten banned due to a rather large list of things that piss off the execs
          >Heavy gun usage
          >Occasional typical 50s Native American usage
          >Mexican stereotypes
          >Clear foreign white guy larping as a Latino character
          >Even the occasional Bravo-type flirting
          For Jellystone they got around this by only making him Kabong, and then making him Latino. Seems for modern adaptions if he’s Kabong he has to be explicitly Latino now, and if he’s still sheriff he can’t have guns.
          But I haven’t seen the original show available for a long time, and he’s a pretty major character as far as HB goes and more then a lot that are going to be on this channel, so him not being available here is really suspect.
