Disney Channel (ended 2007)
|Yes I'm sure there's a lot of you here who doubt that THE FIGHT FOR FIVE for KIM POSSIBLE will ever succeed or get Kim Possible back. But hey that's exactly what they said about Futurama. |
Futurama was cancelled back in 2003 and that was that. But the Futurama fans never gave up on the series and guess what? Not only did it come back in made for direct DVD movies, it's now back for 26 brand new episodes ordered by Comedy Central.
It took six years for the fans to win this one, but it was a fight the fans in the end won and it was so worth it, as I'm a huge Futurama fan myself.
The link to the article is right here, feell free to check it out.
So never count Kim Possible out or the Fight For Five. It might take time, a lot of time. But sooner or later Disney will cave in, especially after they start to realize that renewing a show sometimes has it's benefits like Family Guy and now Futurama.
It's not the same thing. Futurama was cancelled due to low ratings. Kim Possible was stoped, because Disney was finish with the show, and ended it. Just as they always do. 88 episodes is a lot, no disney-series have ever run for more than 100 episodes. It was a great show, withtwo movies, and a great ending. That's more than the average fan, can hope for.
I don't thing there will be a 5. season, and I'm glad, the series don't need to continue.
|It is entirely possible (no pun intended) that Disney have forgotten about KP or that this unique show was mostly responsible for their rebirth as an animation company (I suspect W.I.T.C.H., Lilo and Stitch and American Dragon were also helping). |
But as long as we fans don't forget and never let up on the "pressure", eventually, Disney will see the light.
Probably about the time the fans get sick of all this boring "disposable" shows like the Replacements or Phineas and Ferb. Neither of which I am any way inclined to watch.
By doing this you will not only be letting Disney executives know that the Kim Possible fans are out there but you'll also be doing a nice gesture of thanking Disney executives for giving us Kim Possible and for giving us four seasons. Keeping a good relationship with Disney executives could mean a possible chance that they will reconsider the cancellation of Kim Possible and renew the series or do the Futurama thing and make several Kim Possible direct to DVD animated feature films. Who knows? All we can do is keep up the Fight and keep a good relationship with Disney executives.

Well as long as Kim Possible fans everywhere keep Kim Possible alive we can keep her legacy alive. Kim Possible is still ultra popular on the internet and worldwide as she touched a lot of peoples hearts both young and old alike. The Fight For Five keeps her legacy alive and the Fight For Five is this Friday May 7th. Hopefully Kim Possible fans everywhere will mail our postcards to Disney and Disney executives.l
They had to pick up Phineas and Ferb as Disney couldn't just admit that they made a mistake on cancelling Kim Possible and that Kim is unreplaceable by any other show least of all Phineas and Ferb and the Replacements.
Disney doesn't ever say out loud that they made a mistake and they did by cancelling Kim Possible a huge hit for them and they know it's a huge hit. But someone obviously isn't a KP fan at Disney as why would you cancel a show with such a huge following worldwide instead of milking it for all it's worth. And Kim Possible had at least another four seasons left including the entire college years.
I don't want to see Kim Possible do a Simpsons and jump the shark, but Kim had lot of life left in it and that's why the Fight For Five is still here fighting to get Kim Possible back. And Kim's anniversary day is this Tuesday September 7th. Please check out the Fight For Five thread here for more information on how you can help save Kim Possible.
