    Two Christian TV networks air retro shows, and that includes some cartoons

    KIDTV and AngelTwo air Gumby, Mr. Magoo, Harvey Toons and a few others


    for now on KIDTV, a block airs weekdays 8am-10am, but looks to me moving to early primetime the last week of March, I went to check Gumby's airings, and it looks to be moving to 7pm EST

    Looks like very soon most of the Christian-based will be gone in place of retro

    edit: KIDTV is Dish Network ans Sky Angel-only

    Ha!
    You would think they would at least have "Speed Racer" or "Astro Boy" with a name like that.

    They could probably air Voltron if they wanted to, since Classic Media has rights to it now.

    Uh, last I checked, World Events Productions still owns the (non Japanese) rights (including the TV broadcast rights) to the show. If anything, Classic Media only has the home video rights. In other words, even if Voltron were to air on the block, it would have to be under contract with WEP, and my guess is that Me-TV can only afford to air shows that Classic Media has all the rights to.
    Cartoons aren't "just for kids"...but they're not just for adults either. They're for everyone.

    Classic Media may be providing the content for the two blocks, but they certainly aren't competing with each other. Me-TV will air their block from 5-8 AM EDT while RTV airs their block from 8-Noon EDT. The other difference is one group airs half an hour of He-Man and She-Ra (with She-Ra going first) while the other airs a full hour of each (with He-Man going first). Real fans of those series will try to watch both groups, and hey, it'll be good seeing Gumby back on TV. Who doesn't like claymation? It looks like Me-TV affiliates can pick up the rest of the shows that air on RTV for their individual use, but that's up to individual networks and isn't being done by Me-TV as a whole.
    College football, basketball, the NFL, the NBA, and MLB. I may not be an expert, but these sports always keep me fascinated if the game is good!

    Yes, WEP has all rights to the American version but since Classic Media has collaborated on several Voltron projects, it's not out of the realm of possibility it could show up somewhere in the future.

    Voltron also has its own page on Classic Media's website in the Portfolio section, www.classicmedia.tv/

    No, they're still on the schedule (unless your Me-TV affiliate is different which could very well be).
