    Why would you want flash? is a better question. For some of us, it's not just seeing the characters again. We actually care about the content and the quality of the product also. I, for one, would rather have no A! or TTA revivals than to see them produced on the cheap, with flash animation or plasticy CGI.

    It's not Wiki itself that's truly to blame; just certain folks who post fake information there presumably to satisfy their own desires or just to screw with peoples' heads.

    The major drawback with Wiki is that anyone and their Uncle Harold can edit it. Heck, I could go there right now and type that WB is planning to release the entire series of Road Rovers on DVD in January 2009 in order to coincide with an all-new CGI Road Rovers DTV movie featuring the voices of Andy Samberg as Hunter and Angelina Jolie as Coleen. I'd be lying through my teeth, but I could do it. So unless an actual link or credible source of information can be found in an article (and another message board shouldn't be considered a credible source of info), much of what you read on Wiki should be taken with a grain of salt.

    If you read news on other sources besides Wikipedia, then it stands more of a chance being true.

    Top-quality animation (except for the episodes done by Kennedy and Freelance), likable characters, good music and excellent writing.

    So, with the exception of the top-quality animation(as Tiny Toons was special in that regard), the others can be pulled off today.

    You bring up an interesting point that I'd like to add to---

    It is true that most TV shows prior to TTA's (and A's) debut were animated with a technique called LIMITED ANIMATION. In limited animation, only part of the character's body, such as the head, facial features or arms, move, while the rest remains static (I'm sure you all have seen this). By stark contrast, the Disney/WB/Avery shorts of the 40's, of which TTA is an homage to, use FULL ANIMATION, with its full body acting, elasticity and exaggerated movements, and greater cel count than most TV cartoons at the time.

    It has been my suspicion as an animation student that most of the South Korean studios that animate many TV shows for "The Big Three" (Disney, Nick, CN) specialise predominantly in limited animation, so there are few overseas studios specialising in full animation. Most of the studios that worked on TTA and A (except probably Wang) have since then shut down.

    However, there's this amazing company called Toon City, a Phillipines-based firm whose most impressive work IMHO was on Mickey's MouseWorks and House of Mouse for Disney, who has demonstrated the most thorough knowledge of Disney/WB/Avery-style full animation. IMO, I'd try to consolidate the service work into this one location.

    OR if they want to make the Tinny Toons older and call it Teen Toons a Version of Tiny Toons like Buster and Babs be 21, Fifi 20, Hampton, 19, Plucky 20, Shirley, 20, Calamity 21, Rest little order and turn Acme Loonversity into something else and this will Target Teens And Adults too so I think are they kidding? As for the Movie part well I rember back in 99 or 2002 they had Tiny Toons on Yahoo Future Movies dates then they took it down in 2004 because they say it won’t make one so I think if they going to do that first make them a little order since this is 2008 second keep 2d or did it like in Loony Toons Back in Action if they want to meet real people.

    As much as I would love for TTA to be brought back, I don't think it should. The industry is just too damn medicore right now for a classic like this to be brought back.

    What do Flash-animated cartoons have to do with the analog-to-digital signal switch?

    I'm beginning to suspect that you just simply don't know what you're talking about.

    Flash animation has nothing whatsoever to do with the impending digital television switch next year. You just get a kick out of mentioning it for some reason.



    Especially since the Tiny Toons characters already were teenagers when the series began.

    Yeah, there'd be no need to do something like that. The Tiny Toons were already teenagers, add to that if they were around 20-21 years of age, then they'd just be the Looney Tunes with different names. 20-21-year-olds aren't teens, so the title would be misleading. Such an idea would indeed be redundant.

    I'd personally rather see new theatrical shorts, not just with TTA but with the Looney Tunes in general, as opposed to a feature-length film. I'd be especially wary of a "Tiny Toons in the real-world interacting with live actors" premise, given the mixed reception that greeted Looney Tunes: back in Action.

    Ummm, I don't see what Flash animation has to do with the change to digital in Feb. 2009, but I agree that shows like Tiny Toons and Animaniacs couldn't be done in Flash. Flash is way too limited to capture the true style of those shows. :shrug:

    It's because it has a specific date. If there's one thing I've noticed about dth1971, it's that he likes to know exactly when things are going to happen.

    dth1971...first you say you want flash and then you say you don't want flash. I'm not sure I know where your coming from here, but wherever it is I don't think anyone here is following you.

    I try to be lenient on closing threads.

    I only let this go on because it did have its insights at times. Right now it really has no sense of direction. Closed.
