    That's because Fox has the distribution rights to the movies, not Disney, so they can shop it around to whoever. It's only airing twice though.

    Cartoon Network seems to be showing a lot of bad shows and movies lately, the Turbo movie should fit in just fine there

    Lately? Since 1992.

    Yeah, I remember watching this on HBO recently. And since FOX still has it, they show it periodically on FOX Movie Channel.

    I wasn't forwarding that towards anyone in particular, sorry. I was insinuating that Cartoon Network has always been mediocre.

    I thought the Turbo movie was actually half-watchable; I think it was just as good as the MMPR movie. They really don't seem too different in quality to me. The sense of the MMPR movie and the Ninja Quest quadriligy as the path to the setting for the Rangers' ninja powers never really agreed with me.

    I hated the Turbo movie and I hated Turbo in general. Whose idea was it to have a twelve-year-old Ranger anyway?

    I somewhat enjoyed the Turbo movie, and I love the actual season. To be honest, I think I have somehow been able to block Justin out, or I forget he is a kid. Either way, I love Turbo. I don't plan to watch the movie though, I have the DVD so I can watch when I like.

    I must admit that Chase into Space was a pretty good finale, but then again part of that could be that after watching those episodes, I knew there would be no more Justin.

    For Power Rangers Future, Would you guys think Cartoon Network will pick up the Power Rangers Series on their Network. They Move Power Rangers again from Disney's rights/Toon Disney and Move Jetix/Power Rangers over to the Cartoon Network and Jetix will take over being the new Toonami on Cartoon Network as well.

    Because for seeing they play "Power Rangers: A Turbo Movie" on Cartoon Network. Like they never play any of the Power Rangers Legends Stories on their network before. That tells us for Power Rangers future might move the Series again to Cartoon Network from Toon Disney. And, "Power Rangers: Jungle Fury" is the last Power Rangers Series will ever play on Toon Disney

    Fox Kids - 1993-2002 -(Power Rangers: Wild Force)

    ABC Kids - 2002-2003-(Power Rangers Ninja Storm)

    ABC Family - 2004-2005-(Power Rangers: Dino Thunder)

    Toon Disney - 2005-2009-(Power Rangers: Jungle Fury)

    Cartoon Network - 2009-)

    No, the ONLY reason why Cartoon Network aired the movie was because Fox still has the distribution rights to both movies and can shop it around to whoever they want since it wasn't part of the sale to Disney in 2001.

    It has NOTHING to do with the series, which Disney has distribution rights to all previous and future episodes. The show will still air on Toon Disney since Disney will NEVER give up the rights to the show to the competition, since it's one of their top Boy's properties that they own and one of the centerpieces of the Jetix lineup that they're trying to build up. And if Disney were to cancel the show, they would still have the rights to future Sentai footage as well as the Power Rangers name and would likely sit on the rights and not do anything with it before giving it to the competition like they do for most of their properties so they can continue to make money by licensing the name to Bandai America for toys as well as other random merchandise like towels, clothing, and costumes.
