Is there any would on whether they will release the old 60's and 70's Marvel cartoons like Spider-Man, Hanna Barbera's Fantastic Four, Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, Sub-Mariner, Captain America, and Thor?

In the eyes of a Disney executive - yes. It's way to hard to actually look in front of you and see what the people want - I mean it's much easier to complete destroy a great piece of entertainment like the Spidey animated series, aggrivate your fans in the process and than say that the property has no real value becuase of the lack of sales it presented Disney with. Besides I'm sure they're wondering - who would want a season set anyways? Our large market of 7 years and younger won't be able to afford those sets - even if we sold them both in sets and singles.

who wishes to thank Disney for their irresponsible handling of such a great property!

whuh?

What happened with FOX and their re-release of the old-school marvel toons? I guess that initiative tanked, and now Marvel is stuck with FOX having the license to distribute their stuff, but they're choosing to just sit on it instead--

But I dunno-- i've seen UNIVERSAL put out the X-MEN cartoon vhs and dvd--

But now that DISNEY owns SABAN (? somebody confirm) who produced X-MEN toon and were involved with Spidey toon, maybe they'll do that as well--

Look for SPidey and X-Men on the "ABC Family Network".. formerly the Fox Family Network...

Disney doesn't own Saban, but they own the license to all of the Saban shows that were aired on Fox Kids - that's why Spidey, X-Men, Fantastic Four and Iron Man will have their own block - this was all part of the deal for when Disney bought out Fox Family. That's why Disney can now destroy the awesome Spidey series in favor of a pieced together movie.

FXX is now starting The Simpsons back at episode 1 for the first time since January, now we'll see if "Stark Raving Dad" will actually be skipped

*UPDATE: Yep, it's being skipped next Monday.
So... Universal Kids is really airing Totally Spies. This makes it the third network in the US to broadcast it. First was Fox/ABC Family, followed by Cartoon Network after ABC Family made it clear that they didn't want to air cartoons that weren't Jetix(or its prototype), and eventually family programming in general(outside of the holidays). I don't know how to feel.
One of the games on Camp Nick is kinda similar to Crystal Maze, which it will later then air on Nickelodeon in future
Me: Oh DARN. I can't believe I'm going to miss the LIVE premiere of Amphibia at 10 because of a stupid doctor's appointment!
*At 9:30, doctor's office calls*
Receptionist: Your appointment has been cancelled. You'll have to reschedule.
Me: :D *gleefully sings Hallelujah from Handel's Messiah*
Just noticed the MTV Movies & TV Awards will be airing on Nick at Nite, they add more networks to simulcast it every year.
