    From Pavanbadal:

    Effective January 2006, Kids' WB weekday block will be removed and replaced by off-network programming targeted for adults 18-49 from Warner Bros. Shows have not been announced yet, but eventually Warner plans to produce first run series.
    Kids' WB Saturday will remain and expand to 12 noon.

    I hope some classic 80's Warner Bros. sitcoms replaces Kids' WB weekdays, like "Perfect Strangers".


    That means that Kids WB will still be on Saturday mornings, the aftertoon show including "Digimon", "Transformers" and "Pokemon" will be gone. Anybody gonna missed that aftertoons block on Kids WB?

    This really does put the final nail in the coffin for nwtwork TV weekday kids blocks. Nickelodeon and CN are far too powerful.

    I read about this.

    Meh, I am indifferent about it. I DID watch Yugioh when it was on there, plus I loved watching the old pokemon and Jackie Chan Adventures. I do like the new Transformers show though.Other than that.... I don't know. I won't really miss it since I don't have time to watch it anymore. My little brother is going to have a fit though, because he watches it almost religiously... now there will be no cartoons in the afternoon to watch, except for PBS. Anyhow, I can't really remember anything they showed in the afternoon BEFORE Pokemon came, anyone want to help me out?


    Anyhow, on a grand scale, I am really sad because afternoon cartoons used to be on almost every network in the 90's, including Fox, UPN, and CBS, and later the WB. In fact, I remember a point in time, where I would get up in the morning, watch cartoons, do my school work, and then watch cartoons from early afternoon to evening. That was back when they showed cartoons in the morning... sigh.

    How sad! This is what we've been looking for: proof positive that TV just isn't what it used to be. But now the kiddies will suffer.

    I tried to think, but had a hard time also. But then I remembered, "Oh yeah! Pinky and the Brain, Freakazoid, Batman, Animaniacs, Baby Looney Toons, etc." That was just on the WB. Before then: Disney Afternoon (Darkwing Duck, Gummi Bears, Chip N Dale, Aladdin, Tale Spin, etc.) and Fox Kids. I know CBS had cartoons also (ones that weren't stolen from Nick Jr.), but I don't remember if they had afterschool cartoons?

    I can't say that I'll miss the WB's afternoon lineup. In my opinion the quality of classical (hand drawn) animation has declined over the years. Bad anime has oversaturated the market resulting in a lack of creativity in stories and character design. I believe that afternoon cartoons will return once producers figure out how to cut down on the time it takes produce a weekly computer animated programs on a low budget.

    It's so sad to see those weekday cartoon blocks go. Just like Howard Stern. I remember when I was a kid WPIX-TV used to run cartoons during the afternoons like the classic Tom & Jerry cartoons, "G.I. Joe", "The Transformers", "Jem", "Bionic Six", "Scooby-Doo", "Heatcliff", "The Jetsons" and the Disney Afternoon shows like "DuckTales", "Chip & Dale's Rescue Rangers", "Darkwing Duck", "Tale Spin", "Quack Pack" and "Goof Troop". Those are great shows in the afternoon. I also remember WNEW-TV (Channel 5) used to run classic cartoons featuring Bugs Bunny & Woody Woodpecker, "Popeye" (the KFS years), "The Super Mario Brothers Super Show", "Muppet Babies", "Slimer & the Real Ghostbusters" and "The Flintstones". It's the end of an era for afternoon cartoon blocks. Maybe you should find cartoons on Nick, CN, Boomerang and Toon Disney.

    Yep I remember all these shows. I watched those networks till they died out. I just liked cartoons period. But giving all the cable networks all the cartoon attention is not major, since during those afternoon hours the shows arent as varied. I dont watch much afternoon shows but I did when I had the time, but this gen that relied on KWB for afternoon entertainment will have to do something else.

    Wow, no more KidsWB in the afternoons. Well then, now you know how it is for us where we live. Even though we had a WB affiliate (for a while, which was yanked off here years ago), we never had KidsWB afternoons.

    Well, I wouldn't really miss Kids WB!, I stopped watching it a long time ago, for some reason.

    Hell, now what are we going to do for afternoon cartoons if you're on th local TV.

    If the board allows me to do this, I wanna put this in my sig: Today's local TV networks are like a communist country, you either watch what they dish out or nothing at all, and so few choices.

    Kids WB wasn't too great anyway. Only thing remotely interesting to me is The Batman, which isnt as good as the first cartoon.

    IMO, Kids WB was better in the 90s, where it first started. They showed the old Looney Tunes cartoons, Taz-Mania, Animaniacs, Tiny Toon Adventures, Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series, and more.

    Don't forget Pinky and the Brain. The only way they could bring that down was to make it a crappy spinoff. Bastards!

    Yeah, Pinky & The Brain was the best.

    I mainly watched Kids WB! for Pokemon.
