    This issue has been up before.
    I think we agreed that there just isn't enough material to make an all muppet channel. in this case, there would only be lot's of reruns, and people would stop buying the dvd's and videos.

    um, no I thought the argument is that JHC is struggling for th emoment. Hey...nearly 50 years worth of nonstop material? naw...thats not enuff for a 24 hour channel;)

    Alicia,

    There was a channel somewhere called 'The Kermit Channel' but it went off air.

    Basically there probably isn't enough public interest for a Henson TV Channel, they don't have the money or right owners right now, and there probably is limited matierial that could actually feasilbly be run all the time.

    Thanks. I guess I'm just a little optimistic. I'd gladly give up the dumb cartoon network for a little Muppets once in while!

    Thats not to say we'll never see it - with Video on Demand, and in the future, On Demand TV Channels starting up on the net - you could well see 'Muppet TV' at somepoint, just not yet !

    while i agree that a Muppet Channel would be great, i have to find fault with calling Cartoon Network "dumb". they have some of the best original programming out there (Dexter's Lab, Powerpuff Girls, Space Ghost C2C). sure, they show a lot of re-runs, but they're adding more new things every season. just look at what's coming out this fall, new He-Man, new Transformers, and more that i can't recall right now. they've done well for being owned by Turner.

    I am not a fan of Cartoon Network, sorry I offended u. Great material is always different in the minds of differnet people. im soory i said that!

    not offended, per se...just pointing out the irony in calling what is probably the one network that doesn't treat children as stupid "dumb"

    UUUUUum theres new He-Man and Transformers coming out ? I never knew that. Oh i hope they keep it close to the original and don't revamp it that much - these are properties not to be messed with !

    Luke,

    The Kermit Channel was in Asia, I think it is Hallmark now tho.

    It wasnt Non Stop Muppets anyway, Just the same kind of Line Up as Hallmark or Odyssey.

    I think it spelt that wrong.

    See ya

    You just pointed out examples of why I dont watch it. I think all these shows, and like Johnny Bravo, cow and chicken...etc they all seem like a throwback to bad animation and quick ADD strobe light cheapism. It amazes me how truly edgy stuff like Invader zim gets cancelled, when cheap fodder like most of Cartoon Network's programming seems to command such ratings. However, I do respect the channel for their anime content, as they seem to be the only channel with cajones to show the good stuff. As well as getting Transformers.

    We need a 24 hour anime channel and a 24 hour jhc channel.
    oh how such would be sweet.

    do you get the action channel? they have a tendency to show some pretty decent anime during the weekend. a lot of blue seed, and other things that are a bit more random. all in all, good stuff.

    i agree about invader zim, but i think nick just didn't know what to do with it. had it ended up on cartoon network, it'd probaly be bigger than the powerpuff girls.

    i also have to disagree about "ADD strobe light cheapism". to some extent you have a point, but some of the writing is so good it's scary. i mean, i've found Monty Python references in PPG. dexter is one of those cartoons that is guarenteed to make me laugh no matter how many times i've seen the same ep (if you don't believe me, watch the one where dexter gets zapped into the video game a couple hundred times...when they show "master computer", it's still hilarious). johnny bravo is what i watch when i feel like watching the high-school jock/moron get what's coming too him. and Space Ghost C2C is about the most brilliant thing i've ever seen. and let's not forget, this is the network that brings us Samarai Jack and Justice League (and soon Teen Titans), and has the pure SACK required to run things like, well, their entire Adult Swim project (they've even picked up shows that were "too much" for networks like the Oblongs, deuting this weekend).

    I have to agree with the Cormeister - i can't stand all this new fangled animation, either on Nick or Cartoon Network. I love the old classics and the 80's stuff, so i'm glad retro is coming back in !
  18. Yes, I think the '80s was the high point of children's entertainment, especially on Saturday mornings. I literally think no other decade even compares.

    Though I do have to say, I've seen "SpongeBog SquarePants", and it is cute! Lol! :D

    Rock on Beaker u have said it to a tee! Cow and Chicken as opposed to Muppet Babies. You take your pick. As for me, Muppet babies will win out on a stupid cartoon (yes, stupid) about two farm animals with fake from-where accents.

    the problem is that it sounds like you are basing your opinion of a whole network on cow and chicken. yes the show is horrible, i agree with that...but Cartoon Network itself has some really GREAT programming
