Could DreamWorks Cartoons Be Made More For (As Well As Move To) Peacock?

It was revealed today that the Netflix DreamWorks show Archibald's Next Big Thing will be moving to Peacock starting in season 3. It's pretty interesting to see a show jump between streaming services, and not like a regular channel to a streaming service. This has made me wonder if there will be future DreamWorks shows (or any of the currently running ones) that will move to Peacock. There are a few things to note:

1. Some of the current DreamWorks shows on Peacock are also streaming concurrently with Hulu, most notably Madagascar: A Little Wild, The Mighty Ones, and Trolls: TrollsTopia. However, something like Cleopatra In Space is only on Peacock, as is Where's Waldo and also the aforementioned Archibald's Next Big Thing.

2. When Turbo Fast was released to Netflix in 2013, it consistently set up the standard of having all DreamWorks shows premiere on Netflix, which proved true with shows like The Adventures Of Puss In Boots, Dawn Of The Croods, Harvey Girls Forever, and She Ra And The Princesses Of Power. This also applied to the 2012 How To Train Your Dragon cartoon, which had seasons 1-2 air on Cartoon Network, but seasons 3-8 were produced for Netflix.

However, the later half of the 2010s and going into the new decade saw some DreamWorks cartoons coming out in other places. For example, while only lasting 26 episodes, 2 DreamWorks cartons came out on Amazon in 2018, The Adventures Of Rocky And Bullwinkle and Kung Fu Panda: The Paws Of Destiny. The 2019 Where's Waldo cartoon had season 1 air on Universal Kids while season 2 onward moved to Peacock. We also have Doug Unplugs coming out on Apple TV, the first DreamWorks cartoon made for the platform.

3. Two of the currently running shows are Fast And Furious: Spy Racers and Jurassic Park: Camp Cretaceous, both on Netflix. However, both are also co-produced by Universal, which is heavily associated with Peacock.

I have a feeling that any future DreamWorks shows might come out on Peacock, and any of the currently running DreamWorks shows would eventually jump ship to Peacock. Still, I want to know what you think?

Though as I mentioned, Archibald's Next Big Thing moved from Netflix to Peacock. It could very well be possible that Doug Unplugs could eventually move to Peacock after some time.

I'm guessing Peacock is having a scattered release similar to Disney+ in that it comes out in other countries long after the US. As for something like The Mighty Ones, maybe it could air on a different channel there. I mean, the show airs on YTV in Canada, so it could air on different channels in other countries.

With all of the studios making more content, I really don't see DreamWorks Animation making any real announcements over the past several months. And with Peacock it's as if the animation content is an afterthought.

Peacock should commission a revival of Toonsylvania, since Animaniacs is doing good on Hulu (both were produced by Steven Spielberg).

Though the three DreamWorks cartoons on Hulu are being shared with Peacock.

It depends on when DWA's current contracts are up. As for the current shows, streamers tend to sign long-term exclusive rights deals, so they are staying at their current homes for a long time.

MeTV went off the air for about 15 minutes, right during one of the last Svengoolie segments up until it was time for the news (which I get in my area instead of Star Trek).
Well Bakugan was made in Canada too, so...
I made another temporary rebrand now, this time for two weeks, to celebrate the 15th anniversary of CN City's European introduction (21 April 2006).

Includes a 2004-styled profile picture and a banner featuring the 2010-present ITC Lubalin font and a checkerboard-styled logo.

I also plan to occasionally post in the 10th international CN thread, and City era CN CEE schedules.
man i can't wait for The CW's version of the Powerpuff Girls
