i.e. The non-stop re-running of the "Johnny Quest & the Cyber Insects" crap
on TNT. Ted, I couldn't watch it all the way through the first time. Why
would you want to keep showing it ad infinitum? Maybe if you put some Swat
Kats on TNT instead...

Yeah, the only thing stopping him is cash... and a kick in the pants! Ahem.
Ted, there's an old saying, "You get what you pay for." The fans certainly
recognize the difference in quality & content between stuff like WPT and SK.
I don't understand why you can't.

Well, I wouldn't count on WB getting into the picture anytime soon (unless
you've heard otherwise Chance.) I'm sure that H-B is the _least_ of WB's
worries at the moment. I'd think they'd focus all their energy on other
projects, especially since WB has their own network and Toons to think about.

<whew!> I've been lurking too much again!
