    "Cadillacs and Dinosaurs" makes this announcement heavenly. So much to love in that old series - it was one of the pioneers of the new Saturday Mornings we were starting to get in the early to mid 90's.

    Wonder what other series Nelvana could put out?!?

    Oh PLEASE put Eek! the Cat on there. I would play catch-up on that if offered. Don't be stingy, Disney.

    Ii like how slowly every company is putting up official content on YouTube. Nelvana doesn't have too many shows I'm interested in, but still a good thing regardless.

    Mark Schultz, the creator of Cadillacs and Dinosaurs, taught my Senior Project class back in art school. I never watched the cartoon or read his comics, so this is a great opportunity to do the former.
    Man, I wish other content companies would do this. I'm looking at you, Hanna-Barbera.

    If this channel puts up Eek! the Cat and Beetlejuice episodes, then I'll subscribe to it. I'd have mentioned Sam & Max too, but I already have that entire series on DVD.

    Personally, I have zero interest in seeing the Donkey Kong Country cartoon again, although that might be a fun show to riff on MST3K style.

    Beetlejuice sounds like a long shot because WB owns the property, but then again, there's Donkey Kong Country right there.

    I remember watching Donkey Kong Country back in the day, but it wasn't one of my favorite shows and I doubt that it would hold up that well based on what I remember. Still, it's cool that they're putting some older shows on their YouTube channel if they put something that really catches my attention, I'll check it out.

    The Magic School Bus
    Sam and Max
    Bob and Margaret

    So far there is nothing I am interested in, but this is good in theory.

    Didn't Nelvana merely import Tintin?

    ^ Tintin was a co-production between Ellipse Animation in France and Nelvana in Canada.

    Well, Disney owns Eek, so you'll never see that and WB owns Beetlejuice.

    They also have 'Bear Shorts' where they dub over footage. It's pretty funny.

    I've only ever seen Donkey Kong Country clips so maybe I should give this a chance.
