Disney Channel (ended 2007)
|OK, I'm gonna be the dissenter and risk being bashed, but... as a *fan*, I must say so far, I'm (very) disappointed by season 4. There are two great episodes ('Stop Team Go' and 'Odds man in' ), one horrible disaster ('Mather and fervent' ) and the rest is only so-so. (I have not seen *all* episodes that aired so far.) Except for the two episodes that I cited, they haven't be able to match the standard of the first three seasons. That's why I think they should stop after season 4. Because quality is more important to me than quality. Please respect my opinion, just like I respect yours.|
|Just switch over to American Dragon or Avatar or something...|
Well guys, it looks like anything that is done from now on will be for not. The creators have parted ways with Disney. You can read my editor's blog for the complete story, or you can go here:
|Sad news indeed! Too bad the Creators cant buy the rights to the show and revamp it on another network and in there own vision not just disneys.|
Yeah, if only they could. That would be interesting to see what would happen there. Anyways, I read more into this situation, and it turns out that Disney Executives made them leave their offices, and move on to something else. They did not have any say in it. They just were evicted by Disney. At this point, I really hate Disney. Can't they do anything right? I hoped I would never have to say these words, but...
If what bbqsauce 13 is saying is true and the creators where just booted by Disney, which again won't surprise me and shouldn't surprise any of you out there either. Disney isn't the Disney that Walt Disney created, envisioned and nurtured. Disney is now more a darker version of itself, runned rapid by executives that have no regard for Walt Disney's vision and even a greater lack of care for Disney fans worldwide, case in point with Kim Possible sums it all up. Here's a show that so loved worldwide and before I joined up here I never would have believed that a show could be this loved and this popular worldwide. The fanfiction out there is living proof of it. Yet Disney couldn't care less about how we as fans of Kim Possible feel and that we want the show to continue. They never wanted a fourth season of Kim Possible and that's so obvious with the scheduling. Kim Possible is way good enough for PRIME TIME viewing, yet where did Disney put the show. That could be coincidence, but come on now would you truly believe that? The way I feel Disney Executives look at all of us viewers and all of us Kim Possible fans out there as being nothing more then mindless viewers who'll complain at first about losing our favorite show and then will all just go on and accept it and put Kim Possible and the show to rest. In short they'll (being Disney) get what they want (what they most likely wanted back in Season 3) and that is they would have successfully put Kim Possible to rest, sealing the final nail in Kim Possible's coffin.
Now with all that said where do we go from here? First of all I would love to hear from the creators and hear their side of the story. It would be great if they didn't leave all us fans out there in the dark. Let's hope they respond to someone so we can get the real inside story of what happened. Cause I just can't see the creators just up and abandoning us like that, when we're all fighting to save the show we love so much. I have a belief that bbqsauce 13 might be right about the creators being forced out and if that is true it's all the more REASON TO CONTINUE ON THE FIGHT.
I myself won't stop the fight for season five, it might be a waste of time and effort on my part. But when I believe in a cause as wholeheartedly as I do with Kim Possible and this show, I'll see it through. Or as what Kim likes to see so much is when her bestfriend/boyfriend Ron Steps up. Well I'm stepping up for Kim Possible. And if the creators Bob, Mark and Steve were forced out by Disney. They'll at least appreciate the fact on just how much this show means too us. That we're willing to fight to the bitter end. All of you KP fans out there will have to make your own decision on whether to continue to fight or give up. BUT REMEMBER ONE THING and this is the most IMPORTANT ONE of all. DISNEY WANTS YOU TO QUIT FIGHTING! nuff said.
I see everyone has got the bad news, It's not that they were booted out of the offices but since the show has not been renewed and there is no project that they are working on for Disney their jobs ended when post production was over. for them to return to Disney is for the show to be renewed; as we know his happened at the end of S-3 they were out the door and were called back at the last moment. The big problem is that if they find new work and then Disney want to renew they may not return. As one of the writers on the series said this is the nature of the beast in the field that they are in.
The post card blitz is still on, and we are thinking of ideas for new stunts even now. Keep all e-mails, post card and letter short and sweet and most of all respectful even though you may be angry right now.
|maybe they just don't wanna go past a fourth season, I mean That's So Raven was renewed for a fourth season and ended after that, I guess they wanna do the same with Kim Possible. well anyway thats just my opinion, but hey I wouldn't mind one bit if there was a fifth season. for some reason the really good and popular cartoons keep getting cancelled, I'm not sure why though, no offense if anyone here likes this show but, why not cancel The Replacements, that show is so dumb, not very many people like it and it stilled got renewed for a second season. that is just not fair.|
I think it is because the producers of the Replacements play ball with the Disney excutives. They do what "the man" tells them to do with no arguements, while Bob and Mark fought for their artistic integrity.
Personally I say we keep fighting. If Disney wants to be a pain in our neck the we should be an even BIGGER pain in theirs. If we stop now then that just means that Diseny won, we lost, and Disney will think that they can do this to every show. It isn't right what they are doing and that just mean we CAN"T stop what we are doing.
"FIRST THEY IGNORE YOU. THEN THEY LAUGH AT YOU. THEN YOU FIGhT THEM. THEN YOU WIN"
I am glad to see everyone is united and ready on the fight to save KP. For the idea of sending shampoo I copied these, pick one or all, copy and paste to paintbrush and resize for the bottle that you are mailing out. We all have stores that sell inexpensive items in our area
As nyfan said why the Replacements get the go ahead and KP gets shown the door, IMO he has something there, also KP was under the old empire and after the coup; the new powers cleaned house and they let go a lot of the old guard.
