    Well, there are rumors that 1 e/i show by Litton entertainment gets more views that today’s cartoon network.

    Well. I saw rumors that Litton is closing down all their blocks by july 6. However, I can’t say its that true since wikipideas is the only source and I can’t find info anywhere else

    I hope someone has proof. I want saturday mornings back. If

    Since there’s no source, I took it off the pages. I doubt it’s true anyway, and even if it was, this wouldn’t bring the cartoons back.

    If Litton was to drop it would not be all that likely to see a resurge of the Sat morning genre, considering how cable is declining and how online streaming is becoming more of a popular choice to most.

    How would Litton's block ending mean anything for Saturday morning blocks? Networks didn't stop using traditional Saturday morning blocks because Litton came along. It was because they were unprofitable and the concept itself is extremely outdated. It's like being sad over losing Blockbusters and thinking that it could come back if Netflix went under. Traditional Saturday morning blocks won't be coming back regardless of what happens with Litton. If Litton does lose its block, then we'll probably just see it being replaced with infomercials or reruns of network shows.

    Well here's my concept if Saturday morning cartoons returned to replace Litton's block:
    • Disney Junior on ABC
    • Atomic Cartoons on FOX
    • Cookie Jar TV on CBS (revival)
    • Toonami on The CW
    • NBC Kids (revival)
