Apparently, Disney announced on Friday that Phineas and Ferb, which was supposed to be released next year, was removed from their release schedule. I guess that meant that it was cancelled, yet I heard that Dan Povenmire said it was "put on hold". So is it cancelled, or is still in production, yet just going to be released on an unknown date?

Well that's Disney for you, they don't care about cartoons just money and I'm guessing the live-action garbage they spew out is cheaper.
Watch give it about ten years and Pixar will be the only animation they'll have and in a few more years not even that.

Overreact, much?
One animated film (that's not even produced by their feature animation division) being put on hold, is not a sign of them shutting down any animation studio.

People are just still sore there are no 2D films in the works, and Tron Uprising got canceled after one season.

It's not just this movie, Disney treats their cartoons like garbage by giving them only two seasons and barely advertising them after the first season making sure the cartoon fails enough to not be renewed and then they keep their focus on the live-action garbage.
Phineas and Ferb seems to be the only cartoon that has gotten past Disney's two season limit and hopefully Gravity Falls but with Disney we won't know till after it's second season.

Fish Hooks has a third season. And note that there's always the possiblity that Wander Over Yonder and/or Star and the Forces of Evil could get 3 seasons or more. And keep in mind that Walt Disney Animation Studios has not one, not two, but six animated movies coming, Pixar has seven, and with the addition of Marvel and Lucasfilm, there's more potential for animated series on these properties; there's already a new Star Wars series coming out after all. ShadowBeast, Disney will have animation around and keep it safe and successful for a long time.

I thought Disney lifted its strict "65 episodes" rule after Eisner left, and let Kim Possible have another season.

Disney DID end Star Wars: The Clone Wars and "postpone" Detours, though.

Yeah I don't think any of that is true. In fact, I think Disney does a better job with TV animation these days than Cartoon Network.

Kim Possible got another season because like PnF was popular enough and most likely because Disney got enough emails and petitions to give KP fans another season.
As for the "65 episodes" rule I've heard they stopped that too but unless the cartoon is super-popular enough the show will only get 1-2 seasons of 26 episodes per season which equals to 52 episodes instead(though some shows will get less/more episodes per season).

No network is going to invest in promoting a show or keeping it going if the ratings are poor. Animation is too expensive for that. If a cartoon's not getting good ratings from the get go, chances are its not going to last long.
Just like what happened with Motorcity.

Are you kidding me Cartoonnetwork's cartoons get more seasons and they even release dvds more often then Disney.
True for some. However, that's not always the case. Several of their cartoons were short-lived or did not complete their story arcs. Examples include Samurai Jack, Megas XLR, Robot Jones, Hi Hi Puffy Amiyumi, Robotomy, Squirrel Boy, Sym-Bionic Titan, Mike, Lu, & Og, Sheep in the Big City, Juniper Lee, Problem Solverz, Secret Mountain Fort Awesome, the list goes on!

To be fair, that show never seemed to get much advertising.

So what's their excuse for canceling Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes? Last I remembered it was very popular and they aired almost everyday for it's first season but with it's second they aired it only at night once/twice a week and barely advertised it.
And don't try telling me Avengers Assembled is a continuation because it's not since they got rid of half the cast and changed the voice-actors.

Basically they wanted a show more like the movie.

Earth's Mightiest Heroes was made before the head of Marvel Animation decided to start fresh with all their animated series, and since the head, named Jeph Loeb, wanted a series that was closer to the 2012 movie, Earth's Mightiest Heroes was cancelled to be replaced with Avengers Assemble, which was made by the same studio working on Ultimate Spider-Man.

Check out my sig, would you? I realize at this stage of the game I don't want people to read Gilda & Meek & The Un-Iverse because I want money or fame. I wouldn't have posted 34 free issues on a blog if I did. The Aspie in me simply feels that it's really the only way for another person to fully understand me. That matters to me.

DuckTales was canceled? Why is it that despite the fact that I didn't love the show I'm super annoyed anyways?

It turns out I dislike crushing potential as much as I do quality.
