Um, just heard that one of the WPT's has done well with some kind of marketing "focus"
group and is on its way to becoming a 13 ep series. Well, if Ted would care to count
the sixty people on my "SwatKats" mailing list, the many Katsfans among the Internet
newsgroups, and all those that took the time to write Kats fan mail to H-B - I think
you'll find that we are also a sizable "focus group" ourselves...and we're all clamoring for more "SwatKats"; not more "Shake and Flick", not more WPT's, and _certainly_ not more
"Captain Planet". A number of individuals on Internet have written you guys concerning
the Kats with no answers forthcoming - maybe you could kick this as far "upstairs"
as it can go, and maybe have someone capable of speaking for TPS explain why they
cancelled a program with so many viewers - and why the last three episodes aren't
slated for completion when it's plainly obvious that the viewer interest is there.

Most Entertainment Entities realize that every fan-letter received actually represents the
views of many, many more individuals of a similar mindset. Is Turner a bit slow to
recognize what Warners, Disney, Film Roman and Fox have known for years - or
don't the consumers of the product count for anything in the South?

Looking forward to the response.

(Apologies if this is a major downer to those reading all this stuff as part of their
  appointed rounds, but the clowns at TPS who canned the program pissed off
  a _lot_ of people. I've personally spoken to upwards of 100).
  "I'm on the Internet...sometimes every day. I use it to plug in and feel the
   pulse of my audience. I think most producers used to wait for the fan mail
   to roll in. You don't need to do that anymore. There's instant communication
   with your audience. -- The "X-Files" Chris Carter
