Re: WNEW The Affiliate that made a difference!

Hi Hinotori, Wow! I just went back more years than I want to admit to! I don't remember the visual of the promo, but the jingle was in the deep recesses of my mind. WNEW was a great independent station. They had such a variety of programs and programming. And the cartoons they showed...some of my fa...

Re: Asei Kobayashi has passed away

Hi Cure DragonEagle, Gosh DARN! I wanted to share this first but this post is way better than anything I could have done! You rock Other Jason! RIP Asei Kobayashi. Thanks very much. It was difficult to pare down all of his accomplishments to a small piece, he did so much work and so much in his life...

Re: WNEW The Affiliate that made a difference!

Hi CureDragonEagle, I know Reality is way more complex than the fairy tale Sandy Frank gave in interviews but I still believe this was the affiliate that made a difference! The Fun's on Channel 5! I was so moved by the story I even wanted to go to WNYW headquarters if I ever visit NEW YORK! https://...

Re: Gatchaman and more no longer on HiDive

Hiya Hinotori! I can only image the executive’s conversation after the fan reaction… “Oh, boy. That didn’t go over well.” “Do you think we should change it? I mean, these are fans of the series, and who would make a better test audience for the name than them? If they don’t like it…” “No. We’ve spen...

Re: Funko Pop! Gatchaman Figures

Oh goodness! I think I may have to get these... I like that they included the weapons - and that Joe has both his cable gun and feather shuriken! That was a nice touch. Once you Pop!, you can't stop! Oh wait... someone's already using that. ;-D I was a bit surprised at the attention to little thing...

Re: Things Battle Of The Planets got away that could never happen in a kids show today

Hi Bobkat, The ending of "Race Against Disaster" makes me mad. Not that Lucy self-destructs, but Zark's attitude toward the whole situation. This is going to be with Jason for a long time. He won't just "get over it." :evil: Yeah, I completely agree. I know a lot of fans who were pretty ticked at Za...

Re: Things Battle Of The Planets got away that could never happen in a kids show today

Hi Cure DragonEagle, I love how Race Against Disaster basically is a covert criticism of the whole "They are robots. They can die. They dont matter" thing without even intending to be lol. That's very true. I wonder if anyone ever considered that while putting the episode together? Viewers weren't s...
