...Does this screw up any chance of CN letting it have a permanent spot after the 10th anniversary marathon?

It would mean though, knocking Huckleberry Hound and those others off, not that everybpody recives boomerang, but more folks are..not trying to start a flame war (I didn't go to Dragon school! :D). (I've wondered if late 50s-60s HB showings even on Boomerang not being anymore is ANYTHING related to the much mentioned music rights, the same music attacked for its music strike era alignment with those Huck era 1958 Warner shorts. PPG has no such problems due to custom made scores...)

Obviously now since it's been at least 15 years since the 1990s, anything since mid ealry 1980s can be possible on there.

I know that there will come the inevitable complaints from fans that Powerpuff Girls is "too new" to be airing on Boomerang, but the way that I see it, if Cartoon Network isn't interested in showing PPG anymore, and we're still waiting for volume 2 of the PPG DVD set, a run on Boomerang is better than not showing PPG at all.

I've never been able to afford Boomerang. I wish it came on basic cable. As for PPG, I'm getting the DVD set. So I don't care about what happens to this show rerun-wise.

Whoops! OK, then, so PPG airing on Boomerang will be good for those too cheap to purchase the DVDs.

I'll personally still be getting the DVD set, but it's still nice to see it airing again somewhere.

Well, I'm one of those cheap guys who can't shell out the money for the DVD, so I'm thanksful that Boomerang is airing this.

Kinda ironic how just a few years ago PPG was one of the darlings of CN and has now been more or less castoff by the network.

How is that ironic?

It was popular and now it's not. I think we should consider ourselves lucky that not only will the show being airing on Boomerang it's also going to be released in a full series set.

Oh I understand its just kinda weird in a way. But Cartoon Network as well as other networks always do this. No big deal.

Well also the PPG still is CN's biggest homegrown merchandising hit. Nick's had several (Rugrats, Blues Clues, Dora the Explorer, The Backyardigans and most especially Spongebob) that were/remain immensely popular for years on end.

PPG was popular for a couple of years and then imploded from the lack of momentum (the utter bombing the movie didn't help) and CN has yet to field an original series that's as much of a merchandising powerhouse as PPG.

It's inevitable (If you look at Disney Channel now, it's like Hillary Duff and Lizzie McGuire never existed, let alone were Disney's big draw cards)

The PPG movie bombing was mainly due to how it was promoted:

1: It was promoted as strictly a *girl's* movie. I remember virtually every ad had the 'That's what girl's do' song playing.

2: It opened against Lilo & Stitch. That was a huge error in itself, but the biggest mistake of all:

3: The film was prohibited from playing after 6 p.m. for some... odd reason. Every theater it played only gave it matinee screenings, not even when it went to the second and third tier theaters. That cut a major part of it's gross right there.
