Heh...try explaining away 200 bucks in phone calls trying to figure out
who did what to who with the SwatKats cancellation - I think I made
Ma Bell's Christmas card list this year. Two folks I talked to about the
same age as myself (birth certificate says "30" - but you'd get an argument
from anyone that knows me!) said something similar to "I don't know
what it is about the 'Kats; I've liked cartoons for years, but I've never liked
anything as much as I do this show...". Ditto.

>Any idea how many people are there on the list? I'm just curious.

It varies of course - but at the moment it hovers around 50 members or
so -- most of them of the lurker variety. By way of comparison, the "Gargoyles"
list has roughly 100 - but they have new shows to discuss, all we have is our
disgust. Not bad for a mailing list catering to a canned show - too bad that
the Powers-That-Be don't realize it.
