    In late 2009, Animaniacs co-creator Tom Ruegger wrote:

    I found the source of the former statement. It was in an interview with the first president of Fox Kids, Margaret Loesch. The article is titled "Champions Series: A salute to Margaret Loesch: In her own words". It was published on November 1, 1996.

    These are more press quotes about the Fox/WB dispute. The first quote is by Mediaweek writer Eric Schmuckle. It was in an article titled "The new face in toontown" that was published on April 17, 1995.

    This quote is by Los Angeles Times writer N.F. Mendoza. It was in an article titled "WB Raises the Animation Ante" that was published on October 22, 1995.

    If you read between the lines, the show that replaced Animaniacs on weekdays was X-Men.

    This was Fox Kids' afternoon schedule in the 1994-1995 season:
    Tiny Toon Adventures
    Mighty Morphin Power Rangers

    This was Fox Kids' Fall 1995 afternoon schedule:
    The Adventures of Batman & Robin
    Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (Mon-Thu) / Goosebumps (Friday)

    Ironically, X-Men was not a success on weekdays. In early 1996, Fox replaced it with Eek!Stravaganza. However, X-Men continued to air on Saturday mornings until January 24, 1998.
