    I emailed them asking if they were going to bring back Donkey Kong Country. They used to air it all the time even after it ended. Here's the response I got:

    Thanks for taking the time to write to us with your suggestion. While there are no plans to air Donkey Kong Country at the moment, I will pass along your comments to our Programming Department for future consideration. Please know that our decision to acquire a specific series is not solely based on offer and demand, but is also based upon broadcast availability and our license's terms for Canadian content. Rest assured that whenever we can, we do our very best to acquire requested series.

    Sincerely,

    I think there's a very good chance they could bring DKC back. For one, the DKC series IS Canadian content, so it's no problem for them to air it. And I'm sure broadcast availability is no problem, since DKC is owned by Nelvana and Teletoon gets practically half its shows from Nelvana.

    If more people email Teletoon asking to bring DKC back we might have a chance. It's a pretty good show (better than 90% of the stuff they're airing now, anyway).

    They should air DKC, except I don't have Teletoon or any other Canadian channels.

    They could, but then again, they might not.

    They send you that message no matter what you suggest to them. Donkey Kong was a classic show made me love Teletoon.

    Teletoon is a Canadian television channel.

    And they're putting more old shows back on recently, ever since they changed their format (I think they were taken over). I've seen Ripping Friends and Cybersix, which I don't actually watch, reappear on Teletoon recently. We can expect more shows to return in the coming months.

     I'd always get responses like that when I suggested series to be brought back on the air. I don't know if they even bothered to forward it to the "department"!

    I would perfer if they aired this show in the US. Out of all the crap that's on TV today, shows like this should still air on TV.
