Something I've noticed in recent years is that a LOT of older shows that originated in Canada have made the jump to You Tube freely and legally. Studios like Nelvana and similar have been pretty free and easy with their cartoons being hosted online and have made them legally available. Presumably this has to do with the arts in Canada being partially government-funded, though I don't know for sure. Anyway, the fact that a lot of older Canadian shows are officially circulating online seems notable, and I feel like it's a worthy note for this page, but I'm not sure where to put it. Any ideas?

Where would in-universe examples of this trope go? (ie Bruce Wayne's attempt to find episodes of "The Grey Ghost" in Batman: The Animated Series, and discovering that no tapes are on the market anywhere)

Would it be too dumb of an idea to do a "playing with" for this one?

On another note, do we really need a description that's the equivalent of two full screens to read? No one can honestly chop this down?

If not, I'll take a crack at it in the near future. It's ridiculously wordy.

Did some splitting. The page was getting unbearably long.

Colbert had a segment that endorsed circulating the tapes of his show. But I'm not sure whether his program qualifies, given that it's all on iTunes.

Something from Western Animation: "In fact, not a single Disney series has been released in a proper season set in the United States."

Um, Gargoyles, anyone? Never mind that people are still (understandably) upset about only getting the first 60% of the series, the first season was certainly released, and while I'm not sure they fit the strict guidelines of "a proper season set", many other Disney shows have been released in fairly large chunks. What is the entry talking about?

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
