     Well, I didn't really confirm anything, actually - someone with
friends at Spumco suggested it, and the precedent was set by Turner
themselves by having the no-budget DIC animate a season of "Captain Planet".
(Oh, BTW - it's impossible to "pay Wang for the art" - they don't do any.
 There have been a _ton_ of retakes on ANIMX for the upcoming season, and
 there's only a WBA liason at _one_ of Wang's two outlets making the
outfit draw with its' eyes open!)

Tremblays wouldn't come back in any ongoing creative capacity, but
perhaps a consultative one. Like I said before, all the hard work's been
done by others no longer employed, so continuation of at least the
extraneous three scripts wouldn't be that hard. They just have to come
up with the cash, the will, and send 'em off to Mook.
