    The cartoons would not come back. It's not Litton's fault. It's just at the point where it doesn't seem anyone else is interested.

    If Litton was to end, chances are another group of a similar interest will rise and be the new Litton.

    Their replacement would not see first run animation produced for it.

    Nothing would change. It isn't Litton's fault. The idea that they're responsible for killing off Saturday morning blocks is just ridiculous when the concept of a weekly block of shows aimed at kids is such an outdated concept. There are so many channels aimed at kids that play shows every day. There are a ton of ways for people to watch shows whenever and where ever they want to. All of that is more appealing than waiting until Saturday for shows aimed at kids. You might as well be upset at Netflix for killing Blockbusters and Hollywood Video stores with this logic.

    Even if Litton did go under, a new company wouldn't come in to revive traditional Saturday morning blocks. If the networks thought that there was still enough money for traditional Saturday morning blocks to keep them around in this day and age, we wouldn't have this conversation.

    Litton isn't to blame...

    The networks are!

    They are the ones who don't see value in Saturday morning cartoons

    (but they do somehow see value in soap operas)

    Also wishing for a company to shut down just because they supposedly "ruined" Saturday morning cartoons is uncalled for!

    Even if cartoons came back, they'd just be E/I fare (think along the lines of Kids WB's long forgotten "Will and Dewitt"). The days of dubbed anime or superhero cartoons or even just straight-up comedy cartoons arent coming back due to the educational programming rule (and the fact that most of those are either on other networks or online).
