    I just saw a promo about an upcoming anti-bullying special, and I was hoping they were finished with the anti-bullying campagn since Christina Miller is the new president. sorry but, CN shouldn't get involved with bullying. It is CARTOON network!

    You assume, huh? I guess the promo didn't show any footage of the special. I might have to catch this promo myself.

    Well I think I found the promo on YouTube. Is this what you saw, dprboy?

    If so, then it seems like this anti-bullying special is going to be in the form of bumpers like the "Are you CN what we're sayin'" bumpers. I guess that's fine. It's not like a movie or anything.

    I'm not sure why you thought that. CARTOON network or not, it's still a channel watched predominantly by children, and bullying is something that all kids have to face at some point or another. CN getting a new president doesn't change that.

    Whether one views this is a necessary public service or just a calculated public relations stunt, something like this right up CN's alley, given its' audience. PSAs don't have to be animated just because it's an animation channel. That's like saying that CN can only run animated ads.

    Yeah, CN seems to be pretty proud of this initiative of theirs, so I don't see it going away any time soon, regardless of regime

    I don't really mind the Stop Bullying thing, but I don't like it when they make promos like the one they did with Incredible Crew which endlessly aired on Boomerang until now.

    I don't really mind their anti-bully campaign. I'm not sure how effective it actually is, but the intention is nice and perhaps it is helping some kids dealing with bullying out. For something like this, I don't think that it matters if it's in live action or animated.

    Cohort,

    i'm not aiming this at you and just speaking about people in general but i've never got why live action on cn gets so much hate. they air 98 hours of programming every week so it's not like a few hours of live action every once and a while will kill anybody. there's still plenty of animated series being shown throughout the week.

    as for the anti bulling campaign i don't mind. its still a big problem in schools, the internet and even adult workplaces so i'm happy to see them adressing it. maybe a teacher or principal will see the special and be encouraged to take action. even if its just one person that's better than nothing.

    If it makes you feel any better, CN has used animation for what I assume was for the campaign in previous instances. Kevin Dart (background designer for Steven Universe and Powerpuff Girls: Dance Pantsed) worked on an animated short about bullying conceived entirely by a 13 year old girl.

    So who knows, really. It's not really harming anything.

    I think I would enjoy it if Cartoon Network had more variety and had an official series acting as a PSA campaign. It would be soft of like shows from the 80s and 90s that concluded with moral messages. It doesn't matter if the messages are live-action or animated.

    this is the best idea i think i have ever herd

    it be pretty cool if CN added there Charaters about whats wrong with Bullying/etc, it could be a Good Message imo. as they do with the Ads about it with the IC actors and famous people
