I'm about 40 messages behind in katmail because I've been tied up elsewhere
for awhile. Some of us may have heard rumours to the effect that Hanna-Barbera is
poised to disappear and be replaced by "Cartoon Network Animation".

Well....sorta. One of the Turnerites said that "Cartoon Network Animation" will
actually be a new division set up by Tedco in charge of new production (right Marc?),
where the "Hanna-Barbera" div. will deal solely with the "Classic" properties. I think
"SwatKats" might fall between the cracks here, but my first impression is that it
would be considered "Classic" by virtue of the fact it's no longer in production.

I said earlier that I was going to color photocopy some unreleased Kats stuff
I got from H-B and send it to someone for scanning. I can't do that. My local
print shop said that a further copy of this stuff wouldn't scan in very well, so
I plan on sending someone my *originals* for scanning so that we can all
download reasonable pics.

I also haven't managed to get time for typing in this full Kats script I have
called "Blackout", but now we have yet another script on the way (guess I
better get typing) which is actually an early draft of the unfinished episode
"Curse of Kataluna". "Blackout" was an unused script that became the
genesis for Glenn Leopold's first season closer "Katastrophe", where this
"Kataluna" script concerns a certain kat-vamp's affects on Commander
Feral. I've had the time to read a bit of "Blackout" while typing it for
someone, and I think everyone will get a kick out of it. Leaving these things
in script format also gives you a good indication of how the storyboard artist
takes his cues and helps transform it into a completed episode. It's kinda cool; you
can actually picture the ep playing in your head as you read it....just as you can see
the Turner execs playing *with* your head 'cuz you can't turn on the *TV* and
see it.
"Dedicated to the indomitable spirit of the sled dogs that relayed
 antitoxin six hundred miles over rough ice, across treacherous waters,
 through Arctic blizzards from Nenana to the relief of stricken Nome in
 the winter of 1925. Endurance, Fidelity, Intelligence." -- "Balto"
