Well, Citizen Ted's making one Toon movie, but...

     Sorry for filling up your litter boxes (er.."letter") but just heard
this on the phone.

     Ted wouldn't part with 3 mil to start off a 'KATS movie, and the
show is still airing, but, wait for it - coming to a theater near you:

        "The Captain Planet Movie"

     This is not a drill. I am not kidding. It's happening. The buzz is
that Turner's going ahead with it _despite_ strong protests from his own
marketing people, simply because _he_ personally likes the Toon so much.
Sad thing is, when this bombs in the theatres, you can guarantee he will
blame Toon feature releases in general, rather than his own poor choice
of project. Sounds like the topic of my next letter to the guy.

                 ...we wanna be the good guys..."
