Dana, think we just found our first FAQ entry? Here's where it
stands now. The show is officially cancelled, though it is scheduled to
run on TBS at least through July. All production materials have
evidently been forwarded from Hanna-Barbera to Turner Home Video. They
have three unfinished ones that have had the voice tracks laid, and the
storyboards done - but there are no plans to finish them in the near future.
There are two big rumours. One, Turner cancelled it despite its number
one status in the Neilsen's because he "suddenly realized how violent it
was", something corroborated to an extent by a similar statement made
regarding H-B's decision (?) not to pursue the "Nexus" property. The
second rumour is that both the Cartoon Network and Hanna-Barbera are
losing substantial amounts of cash - but a 15 million dollar construction
project has just started there, so I tend to discount this one for now.
Christian Tremblay was told that "the show wasn't making money" - truly
amazing for such a wonderful timeslot - 4:35 am Western - and the fans
and press were told that "merchandise wasn't selling". Guess not enough
people ate at White Castle, huh? Many of the creative people (and
significant others) realize the cancellation was a horrible mistake, but
they don't sign the cheques - Turner does - and since he's rich, he
doesn't make mistakes in the public eye.

I've found out)
