    That's what tends to happen when you add female characters, lol. That's why some fans don't like that, but I personally always like the Chippettes. They had their own character quirks and weren't just there to be pretty or obnoxious.

    Brittany isn't pretty obnoxious? :p

    I wonder if it has anything to do with Warner Bros' ownership of Ruby Spears... I know the first season of The Tick manages to cut the end credits just before the "Fox Kids" logo, while I think the second season keeps it in tact. And NO release of Inspector Gadget has the original DIC Inspector Gadget indent (just that butt ugly World of Dic in cases... Buena Vista's releases had the at the time kid in bed logo ending). And I just came back from the dollar store with a Mill Creek released Complete series of Hey Vern, It's Ernest to find out that they replaced Dic's logo with Cookie Jar's, BUT the copyright on the back of the box says 1988 DIC.

    One more... This confuses me. While RS is a splinter off of Hanna Barbera, it's usually regarded as a separate studio. However, the Plastic Man DVD is the ONLY DC comics cartoons release that has a Hanna Barbera logo on the back of the package, when Super Friends was produced by HB itself. Plus, the old RS logo has a byline that says either in association with or produced for, but cuts off JUST before the RS logo fades.

    Well yeah but in a funny way, not in a feminazi way, lol.

    On the subject of fan couple pairings... I just don't care. I'm more shocked that Alpha and Omega (that stupid movie with the wolves) has a fan base. And for obvious reasons.

    As far as song replacements go, I'm just wondering what other songs would they have to replace if they were to do season sets? So far, out of all the episodes they've released on DVD, it seems like only two of them have had to have song replacements: "Theodore and Juliet" replaced "Love Potion No. 9" with a poorly-dubbed version of "Witch Doctor", and "The Curse of Lontiki" replaced "Surfin' U.S.A." with "Surfin' Safari" (which really doesn't make sense, since both are Beach Boys songs). Consider some of the other songs that are left intact: "Snow Job" still has "Footloose", which was actually a THEME SONG for another movie (of the same name). I know one episode had "Puttin' on the Ritz", which would probably have to be replaced, as I've heard the estate of Irving Berlin is nasty when it comes to people using his songs... I heard one person actually got sued by his estate for quoting a verse from one of his songs in a book of his.

    I've also wondered in the use of "The Girls of Rock n Roll" was a song replacement in "Bigger!", it's really hard to tell because the mouth/lip sync animation is so inconsistent that it doesn't seem to exactly match the lyrics, but otherwise, everything else does match with the timing/tempo of the song.

    I haven't a clue about "Bigger."
    But anyway, I have the Batmunk DVD and "Batmunk" (The episode) STILL HAS "Danger Zone."

    The music industry in general is a very confusing debocal, it's a wonder anyone can figure out all of the legalities of it and everything.

    And again... if there's ONE song that SHOULD be available to the public domain, it's the "Happy Birthday Song"... talk about greedy, selfish little piggies.
  9. TheWoodringman Active Member

    Yeah!
    That's the reason why in so many shows, at Birthday parties, the characters sing "For he's a jolly good fellow." or something generic.
  10. D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    At least, from what I understand, the copyright is supposed to expire in like 2030 or something, and then, it WOULD be released into public domain.

    I have some good news and bad news.
    The good news is that we're most definely getting a new AATC cartoon series (Ross signed a deal with a Canadian company to produce a new show)
    The bad news is...THEY'RE NOT USING THE 80's DESIGNS! (They're using designs similar to the iMunk app for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.) and they're going to use full COMPUTER ANIMATION!
    Plus, I think that this series is gonna KILL the whole franchise (As if the CGI films didn't do that already, in my opinion)
  12. D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    And who, praytell, is this Canadian company? Cookie Jar?
  13. TheWoodringman Active Member

  14. D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Never heard of them.

    Do you have a link or something you can share your source with? I'm having a hard time finding any information on it myself. The new series that is.
  15. TheWoodringman Active Member

    I just edited my previous post, it has a link to an article which confirms this.
  16. D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    That forum wouldn't happen to be Seville Library would it?
  17. TheWoodringman Active Member

    No, it's not, The Seville Library is GONE. (DiamondDollJeanette even confirmed it on the other forum called "The Chipmunks and The Chipettes." I'm not kidding, that's the name of it)
  18. D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Where in the world IS DDJ?! She's ALWAYS dropping off the face of the earth, and it drives me crazy!
  19. TheWoodringman Active Member

    On the other forum, I just mentioned, but she hasn't been very active lately.
  20. D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Yeah, I have her contact info, but it's been over a year since I last heard anything from her, I dunno why she hibernates so much like this.

    But, that's getting off topic.

    If this new series happens, here's what I'd like to see.

    1. Ross and Janice doing the voices again.
    2. The characters reflect more their usual personalities as opposed to be changed to appeal to today's audiences.
    3. The writing to remain solid and clever (a lot of kids cartoons these days tend to be really watered down)
    4. No "Uncle" Ian, if at all possible.
    5. Definitely no loser Gary Stu nephew and his Mary Sue girlfriend.
