Yes, thanks for pointing that out. Seems the Disney suits were quite concerned about the arrival of "Tiny Toons" in the marketplace.
It's funny how all they do is say, "We're on more channels!" without actually mentioning whether people are actually watching those channels...
Yes. "We're on more channels. Not that viewers are tuning in, because our Disney Afternoon is crashing and burning. But, we are in fact on more channels...with low ratings."
Was the Disney afternoon really that unsuccessful? In all honesty, I never got either block locally. I rarely ever saw any Disney afternoon show. And I was one of the naive little kids who thought Pinky and the Brain, Tiny Toon Adventures, and Freakazoid were actually Nickelodeon shows (I never saw Animaniacs very young when the episodes were being made, I didn't discover that show until a few years ago on Nicktoons Network, and as for Tiny Toons, that was always my favorite as a kid, even though I didn't see it until well after production was over, as I was born in February of 1994.)But anyway, I read that post a few days ago. It was pretty interesting
The Disney Afternoon did well. But then along came Tiny Toons and the other Warner shows, which put a big dent in their viewership.
What is your opinion on animated shows nowadays (animation and story-wise)?
