    One thing comes to mind, Tail Spin. Everything would be the same except Baloo will buy his plane back by the series end and most of all, set it in the distant future where space travel is possible. Have all the tech like in anime style, have aliens, robots, cyborgs and even parallel dimension travel.

    Phineas and Ferb - I love this show, but I think it could do better with stories focused on background characters as well as the main ones.

    I personally think that Phineas & Ferb focuses on too many characters as it is. Personally, I would go within and give the title characters more dimensions and focus less on the side/supporting characters, Also, I'd make one of the title characters a girl and at make at least 1 of the into an ethnic. I have nothing against Caucasian males, but there are plenty of them on TV already. I'd like to see something different.

    That would be a great idea. I know the show's new episodes aren't as good as the show in it's prime (2007-2011) but I feel that even today, the show has potential. I still enjoy it now but there are some new things the show can do that it hasn't explored yet.

    Lab Rats is one example. It had potential to be a cool sci-fi comedy and I would've watched it more often and perhaps favorite it, but instead put the characters in school just like every modern kid sitcom does. Why can't Disney have characters in different settings other than school?

    Well, this show is one of the most diverse shows airing now; the show does have Caucasian males as the leads (although it does have, while not a race, a British as one of the leads), but there's also females (Candace), Hispanics (Isabella), Indians (Baljeet), and Asians (Stacey)
    Thinking of something to write down.

    I think "Bonkers", "Aladdin", and "Shnookums and Meat" need to get recognized here, right?

    Bonkers: Focus on some background characters, like the Mad Hatter and the March Hare, Flaps the Elephant, the Rubber Room singing trio: Bullfinch, Bullfrog, and Bulldog, and other characters, throw in some APM music (I.E., "Ren and Stimpy"), and put in some characters from recent Disney movies released during its time, like "Beauty and the Beast" and "Aladdin".

    Aladdin: I heard there were some celebrity voice actors that were about to be featured in some planned episodes, but were removed at the last minute. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aladdin_(TV_series) Also, focus more on Mechanicles and Nefir Hasenuf and have the real Darkwing Duck and Bonkers D. Bobcat make a cameo in one of the episodes; for example, at the beginning of "Never Say Nefir", Aladdin, Abu, Iago, Carpet, and Genie go to Getizstan as usual, when they see Bonkers and D.W. struggling/hitch-hiking in the desert. Aladdin offers them a ride, but Iago disgustedly doesn't want that to happen.

    Shnookums and Meat: Make it much less of a "Ren and Stimpy" rip-off, have less cartoon violence, make more episodes, focus more on the main and supporting characters and develop their personalities, put in some minor Disney characters (I.E., Monte the Pelican and Viddy the Snipe), and put in some celebrity voice actors, like Gilbert Gottfried as Shnookums' brother and Rip Taylor as Shnookums' dad.

    Decent ideas. I'd also want DuckTales to stay truer to the Carl Barks comics, and possibly keep Flintheart Glomgold's original nationality as a South African intact.

    Then nothing would be the same.

    Tali Spin was meant to be a homage to those adventure movie serials of the 1940s, a la Frank Buck, but with Jungle Book characters. Switching the setting to the future and making it all cyberpunk/Doctor Who would completely take the viewer out of that genre. I get that you really want Disney to make a mech anime cartoon, but I think it would be better if they launched an all-new series with original characters for that as opposed to transforming an existing Disney franchise which has nothing to do with that into Evangelion.

    Myself, I'd only like to see 3 things happen:

    1. I'd like to see TDC start airing their classic shorts again. I know currently it's the teencoms that are scoring the highest ratings on the channel, but it makes no sense that you can't see classic Disney cartoons on The DISNEY Channel. Launch a half-hour version of Have a Laugh! or something similar.

    2. Launch a programming block similar The Disney Afternoon, only for cable. That way, the first-run animated shows would have a designated place to air instead of being randomly scattered all across the schedule at various times.

    3. If we must have an aeon flux of teen sitcoms, can we get at least one in which the principle setting isn't high school? As Cartoon Ruler mentioned, some of their shows, like Lab Rats, had the potential to be interesting, but the producers opted to go the predictable route of making both of them yet more shows about kids surviving high school. And maybe they could produce at least one show produced on film with no laugh track as opposed to the same generic sets and canned laughter; that's part of why so many Disney Channel shows look like endless carbon copies of one another.

    Personally, I'd like to see the return of Vault Disney on late night.. Kids aren't up after midnight, and if they are, I kind of doubt that most kids would want to watch the same thing they can see on Disney during the rest of the day, so I think there's room for a return. They practiced something similar to this last year when they had weekly airings of older shows or movies at midnight, I think on Wednesday nights.

    Granted, there's probably more interest in airing some of the shows and movies from the Zoog era than the classics that made up the original Vault Disney, but I can see a compromise be made. From 12-6, there can easily be room to air a couple of shows like Even Stevens and Lizzie McGuire, as well as something a bit older like DuckTales or Gargoyles, or possibly even the odd classic Disneyland episode, as well as time for a movie that variates from Walt's time to a decade or so ago. Basically treat this as something akin to The 90's Are All That, but for Disney's bigger library and spanning multiple eras.
