    Just for curious What if TimeWarner acquires 4Kids Entertainment in Late 2004, and put it under Warner Bros.

    After merging with Turner and now fully owned Hanna-Barbera, Warner Bros. becomes the next king of Saturday Morning in Late 90's with the newly founded Kids' WB!, even the block surpassed Fox Kids (Fox Kids was later sold to Disney in 2001). 4Kids becomes partner with Warner Bros. that they let air their dub of Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh!, both of them become a huge success.

    After Warner Bros. discovered that their partner, 4Kids, got their own Saturday Morning block, Fox Box, on Fox network, which replace Fox Kids in 2002. TimeWarner acquired 4Kids in Late 2004, along with the rights to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the U.S. rights to Sonic X, Winx Club, One Piece, Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, etc. and the Saturday Morning block, Fox Box (later become 4Kids TV, to reflect TimeWarner's ownership). Warner Bros. can still be the king of Saturday Morning in 2000's.

    But Warner Bros. spin 4Kids Entertainment off in Late 2010, due to cable competition, Saturday Morning cartoons going downhill and changes at TimeWarner, courtesy of CEO, Jeff Bewkes.
