     That's WPIX, New York, correct? I think that some of the
independents airing the program will continue to do whatever they want -
only TBS seems to have made changes that I know of.

     I've heard this from a few people - there should be some kind of
meritorious service award for advertising the character while
role-playing in Furtoonia.

     It showed though, huh? Exo's production values slipped (artwork, if
you can call it that, especially) while Kats became phenomenal. The
reason Exo got a full second season and 'Kats did not can be laid at the
feet of Turner - not the fans. I need my 'Kats fix too - I tend to run
the same eps a lot too.

August Paul Yang posted this information, _on_ - so you
are able to post to it - your system probably hasn't added it to the
text-list of available groups. Try posting to it directly, or add it to
the "newsgroups" line in a post to another group - it'll show up.
There's nothing in it yet, I doubt many people know of its existence at
the moment - plus USENET and related seem to have a _very_ high
lurker/poster ratio.
