>I like this.

Heh. It took me a while to come up with this (believe it or not). I wanted
to add something to my sig to promote the kats & I think this states it
best. Hopefully those who don't even know what SK is, will ask & those who
do know, will ask about the fan club part. Yes, I know that we don't have
an *official* fan club at the moment...

Ya know, I think if TCN & TPS kept track of what goes on in groups like this
and in newsgroups like rec.arts.animation they'd have a much better idea of
how their shows are doing. I know that WB looks in on the newsgroups once
in a while to see an almost instant response to what the fans thought.
(Pinky & the Brain caused quite a bit of net traffic when on A!, now look
where they are!). TPS can't rely solely on Nielsen ratings to gauge the
popularity of SK. A lot of people don't have TCN and most people aren't up
at 4:35AM on a Sunday morning (when SK was on TBS).

It'd be real interesting to see what would happen if TCN slipped one of the
SK "shorts" into the WPT slot. "SWAT Kats Unplugged" would be short enough
to fit into the time slot & I think is much better than any of the WPTs I
could sit through.
