In the now, man
Animaniacs is also a bit after the time of the core demographic for MeTV. This is still a boomer's nostalgia channel first and foremost, and while I know that the series has always had older fans, I don't see it being a fit for the network.

Personally though, while I do understand why many speculate that Scooby will be next, and I can see it, I get the impression that MeTV is focusing on cartoons that aimed a little older since day 1, like the classic theatrical shorts and primetime series such as The Flintstones and The Jetsons. That's why I'd assume that Top Cat and/or Jonny Quest are next.

MeTV does have Saved by the Bell for some reason, which sticks out like a sore thumb in their line-up.

I have been watching some Jetsons at random on Prime (leaves Sunday :( ). Some of the 60s episodes are really nice remastered prints I assume are taken from the 2019 Blu-Ray release. One episode even has the original Saran wrap and mouthwash commercials! Others however are relatively washed out syndication prints with the 80s intro\outro and title cards. A strange package. Picture quality of the 80s episodes is also variable, although I understand that might be at least partly due to the episodes themselves (some were shot on film, the majority on video).

Perhaps Warner Bros and metv/weigel would do a joint venture to have a Hanna barbera branded block on Sunday mornings or launch a Cartoon Network like channel called metoons
