And The Fandom Rejoiced: Western Animation
The fans can go absolutely nuts about their favorite cartoons and the casting of voice actors.

  • Another Spider-Man cartoon? After that Conspicuous CG show on MTV— What? It's being supervised by Greg Weisman? Oh hell yes!!
    • News that the show would receive a Blu-Ray set also made Spidey fans happy.
  • Godzilla: The Series: "What? A cartoon version of the American Godzilla movie? This is going to su- Is he fighting other monsters? Atomic breath?! Holy crap, this is gonna be awesome!"
    • Still images of the character designs showed up on the internet long before it premiered, which was met with near universal disdain. Then at Comic-Con they showed the opening sequence (later cut down in length) that showed those designs in motion along with a cool updating of the original theme. What was proven is that this show has people Running the Asylum, with more Mythology Gags than can barely be contained on one location.
  • As of 2013, Alexandre Astier is making an Astérix film? And it's Le Domaine des Dieux? And — holy crap — Roger Carel went out of retirement to voice Astérix? Hu—rray!
  • "Turtles Forever? Sounds like it's gonna be a bad movi- Wait a second, are those the 1987 Turtles? Awesome!" is probably what many a fan said when they found out it's a crossover.
  • Some fans were worried that the new expanded Justice League roster in Unlimited would make it impossible to spotlight some of the lesser characters. And then The Question showed up.
  • MTV has been terrible for a while now, with all its reality shows and lack of music. There are no redeeming qualities for that netwo- Beavis And Butthead are returning with new episodes?! And they're bringing back the music video segments? Cue Hell freezing over now.
  • Oh, Nick's never gonna bring KaBlam! back-wait a minute? IS THAT JULIA MCILVAINE DOING VOICES ON MAD?!??! SQUEEEEEEEE!
  • Given it's been mentioned, MAD's been doing a good job with offering a Lighter and Softer alternative to Robot Chicken... ooh, what's this sketch about? "Once Upon A Toon"? Surely it parodies Once Upon a Time, but where does that "Toon" come from—HOLY COW, A BRIEF COMEBACK FOR JOHNNY BRAVO, DEXTER, SAMURAI JACK, COW AND CHICKEN, COURAGE, ED, EDD, EDDY AND OTHERS?! WITH ABITING-THE-HAND HUMOR JOKE ABOUT SAID SHOWS BEING CANCELLED ( Dee Dee is running Cartoon Network) ON TOP OF IT?! AWESOME!
  • G.I. Joe: Renegades? Looks like-HOLY @#!? Clancy Brown as Destro!!!!!!
  • The new Green Lantern show is a CGI space opera teaming Hal Jordan and Kilowog as intergalactic buddy cops, from the people behind Batman: The Animated Series and Avatar: The Last Airbender. There is nothing about this that's not awesome.
  • SWAT Kats is being released on DVD? SWAT Kats?! After all the effort they put in burying it in the Hanna Barbera vault to be forgotten? I don't care that it isn't being remastered, and is only available on-demand, THE RADICAL SQUADRON IS BACK!
    • Speaking of, I wonder what happened to those rumors of a revival series in the works. Ah, well, guess they were just tha- What's this? Emails from the creators? Confirmation of a remake in the works? OH PLEASE OH PLEASE OH PLEASE LET THIS NOT BE A HOAX!
    • Links please, I beg of you!
  • Yeah, but what other cartoons are in that Warner archive collection? Wait... the Dragon's Lair cartoon? Maybe... The Pirates of Dark Water?? THE SUPERSTARS 10 MOVIES THEY NEVER AIR ON BOOMERANG????!!!!! HERE'S MY CREDIT CARD!!!!!
  • It's been so long since Disney aired their old cartoons...hey, IS THAT 101 DALMATIANS: THE SERIES ON THE DISNEY CHANNEL!? WE MIGHT BE SAVED!
    • Similarly, Nick has announced they're going to air their entire 90s lineup.
  • Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island. The trailers on Cartoon Network and in the Warner videos sparked interest. The dark, forboding opener of a castle in a thunderstorm - meh, seen it before. Then a monster rips open doors to reveal...Fred, Velma and Daphne - together for the first time in more than 15 years. Thirty seconds later, that oh so beautiful theme song plays - and there was no doubt the Dork Age was over and Scooby Doo was BACK.
  • Nearly 5 years after its cancellation Futurama was revived in the form of 4 DVD movies. When an entire new series was announced not long after (to air on Comedy Central, no less, and not on the dreaded Fox), the reaction was vastly enthusiastic. Until Fox announced that they were looking for replacements for the original voice cast. They soon changed their mind. Rumor has it the announcement was just a move in the salary negotiation.
  • Man, it sucks that the last season of The Boondocks was the end. I'll go ahead and turn on the Ricky Smiley radio show... oh, hey, that's Granddad! That's pretty nea— DID HE JUST SAY AARON MCGRUDER IS WORKING ON SEASON 4? HELL YES!!!
  • There's a new Pound Puppies cartoon on The Hub? Meh, I'm probably not going to watch it- wait - created by Paul and Joe? I'm going to have to check this out.
  • Man, Generator Rex and Ben 10 are both such awesome shows. It'd be awesome if they had a Crossover...wait, they are?! And MAN OF ACTION is doing it?!
  • News that The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes would contain 12 self-contained episodes during its second season made fans who enjoyed the first season's serial format believe a decline in quality would become inevitable. Then, this little screenshot appeared. The complete Fantastic Four, Spider-Man (after reportedly suffering from some sort of Spider-Ban for several years), Luke Cage, and Iron Fist! And that might not be all of them!
    • While fans enjoyed the first several episodes of the second season, including the ones that officially brought most of the heroes in that picture into the EMH universe, many of them still dreaded the self-contained episodes. However, synopses soon promised a revenge story for Loki, and later, the return of Red Skull.
    • "So, Disney will include that Loki episode on one of their DVDs as a 'never-before-seen episode.' Since that DVD won't come until September, it can only mean that Disney XD will take one freakin' long break from this show after July... wait, they're gonna skip over that episode, to make sure we still get new material over the next few months? Great!"
  • Man, remember the days of Toon Disney before Disney XD came along? Wait... is that...Recess on Disney XD? YES!
  • Yet another Spider-Man show? Like it's ever gonna top Spectacular Spider-ManWait, Paul Dini is working on it? Things might be looking up...
  • Daria was one of the few really good shows MTV released. Figures that they'll treat it like- Wait, a DVD release, after ten years? FINALLY!
  • The new Disney Junior channel has just launched and it contains classic shows like Jungle Cubs, Timon & Pumbaa, and The Little Mermaid, as well as old Playhouse Disney favorites like Rolie Polie Olie and Jojo' s Circus.
    • HOLY CRAP! THEY'RE ALSO AIRING PB&J OTTER?! I'll. Buy. That. Children's. TV. Package. Again. Please.
      • Wait, do my ears deceive me? THEY'RE NOT AIRING IT?!?!?! NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Though they are re-airing Stanley, a program by the same company and many of the same people, which went off around the time that Otter did.
      • Your ears did not deceive, but now they're about to hear music. Broadcasts of Otter on Disney Junior in the United States begin on Tuesday, September 4, 2012.
  • Xiaolin Showdown is coming back. XIAOLIN SHOWDOWN IS COMING BACK.
  • They're finally releasing Tiny Toon Adventures: How I Spent My Vacation on DVD!
  • When CBeebies changed their extremely popular preschool-targeted series Waybuloo by shortening the length, adding a narrator, and eliminating the yogo segments (yogo being a gentle form of yoga), the reaction was predictable and immediate. Parents took to the BBC's message boards in droves complaining that neither they nor their children liked the new format. The BBC restored the program the very next day, resulting in happy shouts of "Buloo!" from children. (On the program, when the characters reach a state of great contentedness, they shout "Buloo!" and float in the air.)
  • It sure feels frustrating that Disney XD will get a whole new Avengers cartoon instead of another season of The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, but at least the cast has lots of talented people like Troy Baker and Laura Bailey.
    • The premiere is available through iTunes, for free!
    • Even Better! There is going to be a crossover between Phineas and Ferb and Avengers.
  • Speaking of Phineas and Ferb... it's getting a movie? And the boys find out about Perry's identity? AWESOME!
    • Wait, so "Meapless in Seattle" is no longer just a fake episode, and is actually getting made? YES!
    • Male Vanessa fans were happy about her getting a beach outfit in "What'd I Miss?"
    • They are going to be airing another Cliptastic Countdown at the end of June!
    • Dammit, Perry's identity is still a secret. Well, I guess since Status Quo Is God- wait a second... Perry revealed his identity to Stacy???? With no mind erasing like last time???
    • Three Words: Star Wars Crossover.
    • They are making a Phinabella episode and song! Yes, you heard that right!
  • Hey, what's this Gravity Falls thing? ...Wow, this looks awesome!
    • The best part is the fact it uses actual Disney animation as compared to Flash.
    • The season one finale, explaining further the origin of the journals, having a lot of heartwarming content, and to top it all off, revealing Stan has the first book behind his vending machine, a much-pondered cliffhanger from episode one? The second season is highly anticipated by the fans.
    • The second season? Yeah, late 2014. Wait, SUMMER 2014?? SQUEEEEEE!
  • AUGH!!! Disney's completely bastardized the Seven Dwarfs for 7D. Looks like Disney completely given up on—hey, the Animaniacs staff is working on it? It's a maybe.
  • TELETOON RETRO IS HOLDING A 3 HOUR MARATHON OF GARFIELD AND FRIENDS ON SEPTEMBER 1ST, 2012? Horray! And that show never got a marathon in its entire life!
    • Also, new episodes of Garfield and Friends that aren't listed on the schedule? Yay!
    • After this marathon, different episodes will be shown at different times, when it used to be one episode a day.
    • In 1994, adult fans rejoiced when Kevin Meaney and Eddie Lawrence, two famous comedians, guest starred on the show.
  • After thirteen years of being stuck in the vault, DOUG'S 1ST MOVIE IS FINALLY ON DVD!!! (However, it's only available as part of the Disney Movie Club)
  • After five years, volume 4 of Animaniacs will finally be released to DVD!

      • The dreams are only just beginning—they're continuing reruns of Animaniacs starting on January 7, 2013!
      • Also, on July 1, 2013, Tiny Toon Adventures re-runs began on The Hub as well!
      • And their airing the Spring Break special on Easter Sunday for the first time since 1994!
      • Wakko's Wish is going to get a DVD release!
  • Oh, a Disney show where Mickey "hosts" a bunch of new cartoons. Should be a cute id- wait, they have pretty much every Disney movie character as "guests"? That's actually pretty coo- wait, most of the more recent characters are voiced by their original voice actors! That's gr- WAIT, CAMEOS FROM PANCHITO AND JOSE? AND AN EPISODE WHERE UNCLE SCROOGE BUYS THE CLUB, AND IS VOICED BY ALAN YOUNG?! Too... much... awesome... *swoon*
  • Duck Dodgers is finally coming to DVD!
  • A shame that Motorcity got screwed by Disney XD... wait, are the same people making a new show for Nickelodeon? Titmouse is animating it? George Kristic is working on it? HELL YEAH!!!
  • The Weekenders is FINALLY on DVD!!! Though the catch is, it's exclusive to the Disney Movie Club.
    • Now, also thanks to the Disney Movie Club, we have Season 2, Volume 2 of Gargoyles.
    • And the Movie Club isn't stopping either, as after six years we finally received the third and final volume of Talespin! Even better? It had all the remaining episodes, including the banned episode "Flying Dupes"!
  • For the first time in years, the Disney Channel is going to be airing brand new Mickey Mouse shorts starting in late June!
    • Oh and the feature animation division is making Get a Horse!, which is a new hand-drawn black-and-white Mickey cartoon with Walt Disney himself as the voice of Mickey.note

  • Great, ANOTHER Dreamworks-based animated show? This time, it is based on Turbo? Oh boy, here we go aga... wait a minute... it is being produced by Titmouse? Well, that's pretty cool. More awesome animation by... what did you say? MIKE CHILTON (Reid Scott) IS VOICING TURBO?!
    • It's also not airing on a television network, but on Netflix!
  • Thomas the Tank Engine fans are rejoicing now that Andrew Brenner has become head writer in Season 17. There are references to older episodes and fan favourites like Bill, Ben and Duck and Oliver are brought back. The writing style is also more mature than the other CGI seasons and there has been a lot of Character Rerailment, undoing the Flanderization of the later seasons. Thomas, while still appearing frequently, is regulated to supporting roles and the same moderated number of lead roles as other engines instead of being a Spotlight-Stealing Squad. Thomas is back to normal!
  • Craig McCracken of The Powerpuff Girls and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends fame is creating a new cartoon for Disney Channel? Awesome!
  • The Magic Adventures Of Mumfie is being re-released in it's entirety by Lionsgate? How can it get any bett-WAIT A SECOND, DID BRITT SAY THE SHOW WILL BE RE-RUN ON TV AGAIN? Yes!

  • Like the KaBlam! example above, there's rumors that The Adventures of Teddy Ruxpin will be re-run on The Hub either this year or 2015.
