Now I hope this post doesnt strike any sort of nerve...but if the message of FR was to reach out to people everywhere with its great messages, why has it to this day only been able to be seen on pay cable? This makes no sense. In third grade I carried a round a FR lunchbox biut had never really seen much of it due to being more than financially challenged in the 80's. A decade later through tape trades, Disney vhs, and TNT cable I was finally able to see the episodes. Oddly enough, when a lot of people trash on the 1988 fr animated cartoon, I loved it. It was on CBS saturday mornings and was the only FR I got to see. So, I'm just curious why FR has only been on cable all these years...seems like a contradiction of the message. Think about it...just how many people would FR had reached if JHC had decided to put it on regualr tv or pbs instead of pay cable?
