Alftales was better than alf. Would've watched the alf cartoon more if it was against weaker competition.

Kissufur was good,but smurfs was better. Never got into gummi bears for some reason. Didn't watch smurfs much anymore and i quit chipmunks altogether. I didn't realize until later that chipmunks changed animation studios, Ruby Spears was so much better.

Watched Kissyfur, Superman, Real Ghostbusters, Pee Wee, Garfield, Hey Vern, Ed Grimley, and 2 Hip 4 TV (which didnt last long and was replaced with Fat Albert, which I also watched).

When it came to the new animated shows on CBS, it definitely felt like the theme of the season was celebrating the anniversaries of various franchises (the 70th anniversary of the public debut of Raggedy Ann, the 50th anniversary of Superman, the 10th anniversary of Garfield).

Had a small portable set in the kitchen, so I watched Superman every week. Had it been on later in the morning, it might've been renewed.

2 Hip 4 TV (w/Colin Quinn from Remote Control) lost its audience after the Seoul Olympics and never recovered. Ahmet Zappa was gone, replaced with Barry Sobel (227), and, as Zorak said, it was canned, replaced with reruns of New Archies (a bomb a year earlier) and Fat Albert (which I didn't remember NBC acquiring, but since Cosby anchored their Thursday night lineup.....!)

How long did the Beany And Cecil reboot last for? I saw half of one episode, but later the show was nowhere to be seen again.

Why can't Cartoon Network air shows like Adventure Time, Regular Show, Uncle Grandpa and Clarence instead of Toddler Tightwads No!?

I like her response as to why she chooses Grover.
If you're a writer and a showrunner of a stale show for almost two decades and you disregard an episode you already wrote back in the 90s because of some controversial documentary, I cannot take you seriously anymore.
Was it ever confirmed that CN will host their 2019-2020 upfront this year?
I would love to see a Loud House spinoff comic starring the Loud Family as Ace Savvy and The Full House Gang. Heck, might as well give all the other Loud House characters card-themed superhero/supervillain identities.
