So with the speculation on the cancellation of Animated series I am wondering how long a cartoon series for Transformers could last. It appears that 3 years or seasons rather is really the max. With G1 you have 3 seasons and then a short little bunch of episodes that people claim is a 4th season but it really isn't. Beast wars lasted what 3 seasons? And now Animated is only 3 seasons supposedly. I mention these three shows because they are what most people refer to as the best in writing and show. Do you think the lifespan of these shows is limited due to its connection to toylines and Hasbro wants to push more products out the door, or is it due to poor ratings? I think if the ratings are high but they aren't making any more toys the cartoon has no backing or support. But clearly a network could pay to have the show last if it was really good. Thoughts?
