    Yep. I surprised you didn't know about this already, considering we've known about it since the upfronts.

    It would be nice if they added the 90s Spiderman show and even though I didn't care for it, the MTV series would be a welcomed edition. I mean it would be an interesting addition.

    Really doubtful. Disney/ABC owns the rights and it's still airing on Toon Disney and will probably continue to air there for quite awhile along with various other Marvel Shows like X-Men and Spiderman and His Amazing friends.

    Now that's a possiblity. I mean yeah MTV and the Mainframe production co probably own the rights but since it's not airing and the DVDs have been out for awhile I doubt it would be much of a fight to take it. Plus it would make for a nice addition onto Toonami and really help push the limits of the block. I mean it'd be better then just airing the live action movie (which already airs on TBS and various other channels) on CN anyway.

    ...It's not on Toon Disney according to the official Jetix website. And if Disney still owns the rights, they'd still have it on along with still having X-Men on (which they don't even though X3 is just around the corner).

    And before you say it, that Spidey/X-Men marathon next Saturday is just Amazing Friends episodes.

    That's basically the Amazing Friend's last hurrah though. On June 1 it's being replaced on both Jetix blocks. On ABC Family Super Robot Monkey Team gets the weekday spots while Oban Star-Racers gets the weekend spots. On Toon Disney Dragon Booster gets the weekday spots while NASCAR RAcers gets the weekend spots.

    I feel the same way as you do, SU182!

    On topic, the live-action Spiderman movie shouldn't air anywhere on CN what so ever, because simply it isn't a toon at all.

    :eek:

    Damn, now I DEFINATLY have to tape that marathon!

    On topic: Yes, BIG ratings. 1000X better ratings than Dumb and Dumber. (Or am I just saying that because Spider-man is 1000X better than D&D?)

    I think he was making a Family Guy reference.

    I'll admit (though the movie doesn't belong to CN), the ads were nicely done.

    Tell me about it. I love hearing the old theme with the break beats. Anyone know where I can at least listen to it or better yet dload the commercials?
