As much as I would like for Oggy to return to linear TV, I think it would be best if the show stayed on Netflix. Cable TV is already declining as is.
Since Netflix's contact with Xilam Animation will expire this fall so season 6 will unlikely premiere this summer unless Netflix renews the contract every 2 years.

Right behind you.
One problem with KidsClick is that it wasn't mandatory to Sinclair-owned stations. It was also not syndicated, and the weekday block ran when many kids were at school(I can speak for this) instead of the afternoon.

I believe it wasn't even carried on some larger cities, not even on smaller independents.

One station in Myrtle Beach aired it at 4am with a break at 6am for a local show. Not sure any kids were crazy enough to wake up that early for cartoons (though this man was crazy enough to wake up that early when he was vacationing there).

Reminds me of the ill-fated Broadcast Partners block that never materialized, it was mostly intended to be shown at 4am had stations insisted.

The title of this thread needs to change. If we're still talking about KidsClick after its demise, it at least should be accurate.

Even during its run we didn't even feel like changing the name of it.
They still list the shows as available to stations.
How come? Basically I don't consider this to be viable in the coming years.

Apparently I matter to people. That's sort of nice to know. Granted, I'd prefer more favorable opinions, but it's nice to know people care I exist, even if it's merely to wish I don't.

Hello,
I know this is a weird long shot and I doubt you'll even get this message, but I'm doing some lost media research and I have very few leads. Some old forum posts that came up on a Google search lead me to believe there's a small chance you may be able to help.
