Well all you KP FANS, this is D-DAY! The continued struggle to get Disney to reconsider and renew Kim Possible for a fifth season. I've already sent out 18 postcards to various Disney executive heads, by now they should have got most of them. I've written letters previously to Disney executives and now it's off I go to send out e-mails to Disney and I'm adding Darth_Comrades link for the Fight for Five to my e-mail that I will send of to Disney.
People everything we do right now is never, nor will it ever be in vain, just remember that. I know the struggle is frustrating and nerve wrecking...but Kim and Ron are worth the fight. This is just another phase as we continue to fight for our show. Let's hope Disney hears the millions of us out there that want Kim Possible back for a fifth season. And if they still don't hear us, then we gotta fight even that much harder until they do.
Kim and Ron's fate is in our hands as is the show. If we let go and give up the fight all together. If we start fighting and bickering amongst each other, if we stop being united the way we are right now to save Kim Possible. Then Disney gets what they wanted all along. The sweet satisfaction of victory and we all end up with only fond memories of Kim.
Good Luck to us all, and let's keep those e-mails, postcards, personal letters, shampoos coming.

IM WITH YOU!! I want season 5 and Im prepared to FIGHT FOR IT!! LONG LIVE KP!!
The countdown to the next KP day is just around the corner July 18th. Disney needs to hear our voices once again. We need to let Disney know that we're still around and we haven't given up on Kim Possible. We should all be united together, though some of us feel we're fighting for season five, while others are fighting for boxsets. I feel we should fight for both, though I'd like to see new episodes, so I'm fighting for a season five. I also like Killerbebe's idea of a worldwide get well card. That should grab Disney executives attention. Onwards to an even more successful KP day then the one before.
The countdown for the next KP day is July 18 and it's just around the corner. For those of you KP FANS who would like to see new episodes of Kim Possible in any form or matter, such as a SEASON FIVE, which I would like to see along with other fans, or a Kim Possible spin off, or another Disney original Kim Possible movie. Then please help us with the FIGHT FOR FIVE, join us on KP DAY JULY 18 and send out letters, postcards, "Get Well KP cards" and shampoo to the Disney addresses below.

Or e-mail your requests andGo to this website: http://sdsmail.org/index.php?show=kp Replace it with your comments and send it off. Your voices do count, let Disney know that you love KP and want her tostay alive for a little bit longer. TO THE FIGHT FOR FIVE! Booyha!
If you do manage to pull off a season 5 try to slip a minor note into your demands, something along the lines of " and keep the episodes airing in chronological order."
Its very annoying when one doesn't know where certain plot points came from because their first episode hasn't even aired...
humm flash news American Dragon isn't that great of a show so I don't see why you should waist your time "saving it"
For those still fighting for a Season Five and I know I still am and so is killerbebe and others especially at the Ron Stoppable site we're still just as united as before about getting a fifth season of Kim Possible.
KP day has ended again, but the fight for the rest of us who still believe in preserving the best show on television for at least another season, hopefully more, we're still determined to get Disney to rethink their decision on Kim Possible. The fight has split into two division, one for box sets and the others like myself for a fifth season. I've written a letter that I've been sending out and will send out to newspapers and magazines worldwide to draw up support for our cause. The letter has already been sent off to LA Times, New York Post, US Weekly, and I've e-mailed it to several magazines from the savedisneyshows website address including T.V.Guide. The letter will go out to The New York Times this Monday.
I've included the entire letter below for anyone of you guys to read, I'm hoping it will inspire us all to continue on the fight for a season five and not let Kim Possible disappear forever like Disney wishes it too be.
A little respect for Kim Possible from all the fans that love her.
It is a simple pleasure that we all appreciate. Perhaps it's embedded in the silent throbbing of our hearts, or perhaps it's a natural inheritance that grows with us. Whatever it is, we all seek out and cherish art in all its forms whether in a painting, or a composition of music, in movies, and even in written stories. But have any of us ever considered such art to exist in a cartoon? Have any of us ever considered that such a cartoon would capture the imagination of both kids and adults from all walks of life.
Well one has, and it has done so quietly. It has swept through our homes and has been doing so for years, but it was always shrugged off as a guilty pleasure, and kept that way. A show that struck the world in 2002 with its light but kind hearted humor and affection for all that is sweet and loveable in our world. Such was the effect of Kim Possible.
As I am writing this letter, I keep asking myself: What is a grown man in his late thirties doing writing a letter for the sole purpose of trying to save an animated television series? What is this guilty pleasure that makes both grown men and women worldwide watch a Walt Disney family animated series like Kim Possible? Why would men and women in universities and colleges all across North American, Europe, and Asia watch what was obviously intended for an audience of children and possibly a few teens? What is this apparent appeal that Kim Possible has on grown men and grown women, and why do we always make it seem like a guilty pleasure, as most of us men and women would never openly admit that we've ever watched Kim Possible?
For those of you who don't know, Kim Possible is a Disney Channel original series that premiered in 2002. The show's creators, Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley, created a Disney animated cult classic with millions of diehard fans spanning across the world. The show revolves around Kim Possible, her sidekick and best friend Ron Stoppable, and his naked mole rat Rufus. Kim Possible is your average girl: she's a high school cheerleader, and she goes around the world along with Ron and Rufus thwarting the plans of hilarious villains. Kim Possible is the girl that can do anything; Ron Stoppable is the boy that can't do anything. In season four, where the series is right now, Ron has become Kim's new steady boyfriend and that has just added more fun and drama to the hit Disney series. Ron Stoppable is usually the scene stealer in each episode with his childlike wonder and his outrageous antics, not to mention his whining out loud, but when push comes to shove Ron's always there for Kim and he has Kim's back along with Rufus.
But what's the story behind the show? What has made it even more of a phenomenon?
It all began in 2004, when a handful of fans started a group that silently campaigned against the cancellation, but that got them no where and the show was eventually cancelled. Yet they didn't quit. The group later started their own website and called it Save Disney Shows, which grew as did their campaigns against many Disney Channel show cancellations. The website was later responsible for influencing Disney's decision to bring back Kim Possible for a new season after a year and half since the group's start.
Save Disney Shows, run entirely by Kim Possible fans, is not the only online hub for KP fans. The "Kimmunity" as they like to call themselves, spans an entire network of fans who communicate through forums and their own chat rooms, share fan art, fan fictions, and fan videos. The numbers of these contributions defy almost all other fandoms.
After almost a year's anxious wait the new season finally premiered, surpassing all expectations.
But then a new issue came up, one that haunted the entire community. What comes next? Although the fans knew very well that this is supposed to be the last season, they couldn't understand why. It is the most successful show to come from Disney, and not to mention the best quality show in a long time. It still has all the potential of any new show Disney could come up with, and maybe more. And most importantly, it has a stronger and more loyal fanbase than perhaps any other Disney show has.
So why is Disney not taking advantage of this show? Why does it hold back on the merchandise? Why does it hold back on the fans? Why is Disney smothering Kim Possible?
And so, a new group started up within the Kimmunity. A group of fans who are fighting for a fifth season and soon will fight for a theatrical movie release, and then will fight for decent merchandising. This group is trying to seal Kim Possible's legacy; this group is fighting Disney's entire marketing strategy; this group is trying to do the impossible! They started out as "The Fight for Five", but now they call themselves "The Fight for Kim Possible".
The same vision that Walt Disney shared is the same vision many of us who grew up with Disney still share. Unfortunately Disney no longer seems to show appreciation for that vision. Currently, Kim Possible is perhaps the last running animated show on the Disney Channel, with the exception of a few others that cannot compare to the quality of the show in production; be it animation or otherwise.
And so I finish this letter in hopes that the readers out there realize that art isn't always something that you hang on a wall, or place on your desktop, it is indeed anything that touches your heart. I have realized this, as did the thousands that exist in the fanbase of this show.
Perhaps if you give this show a chance and just sit back and watch the animation, read into the characters, or just take in the flavor then perhaps you will enjoy the sights, sounds and taste of the show as we have. And whether you successfully do so or not, I think you will agree that there never has been a show quite like Kim Possible.
