    Many of the DC DVD movies/specials, as well as any online projects, released during the DCAU (roughly 1992-2006) were family friendly, with in continuity movies like Mask Of The Phantasm, and out of continuity projects like Gotham Girls and The Batman Vs Dracula. However, when the adult DVD movie line started in 2007 with Superman: Doomsday, DC stopped releasing the more family friendly content on DVD and Internet until 2013, with projects like the Lego movies and DC Superhero Girls. I'm just curious as to why they stopped in the first place.

    I would guess it was a reshuffling phase of divisions and the focus internally was on the DCU line first then diversify in a few years.
