     "Due to poor renting". Unreal. No press, no advertising, no
promotion of any kind, and now the Turner powers that be will use the
poor sales and rental figures to justify a self-fulfilling prophecy.

     Too many people in postions of power within TPS don't give a damn
about SwatKats. Why don't these people die off or become victims of some
other kind of natural attrition and make way for someone who _cares_
about programs like the Kats?

     I'd heard that the selling price of the cassettes is 12.99, but I
could be wrong. The rental versions aren't likely to have the extra
stuff that the sale versions do.

(I wish I had access to the media above "letters to the editor". I'd do some
 ad-work that'd _really_ make Ted's boys reach for the Scotch bottle...)
