Remembers 4KidsTV on Fox? Well, ever since the former Pokemon distributors have taken over CW's kiddie lineup, there's been too much of one in the same.

So, as of January 2009, Fox will no longer carry cartoons. Instead, two hours of infomercials and two hours of local content (read: weekend morning news shows). Several shows now on FOX will move to The CW at that time. The reason was money. FOX opted to bail out in excahnge to pay 4K!DS a lot of money.

Another black armband from yours truly after 18 years of televised fun.

R. I. P. Fox Kids Network/Fox Box/4KidsTV 1990-2008.

Money kills creativity, simple as that. Business and art cannot co-exist peacefully...yet, in a twisted irony, art has a lot of trouble getting exposure without money. It's a vicious circle.

It's pretty messed up, though. By striving to get more profits, these networks are destroying the very means of obtaining profits.
