The weekday ones will stay till next may or so.
They have it available on their stream site till then at least.
Endgame part 2 is also on the CN stream site till june 8th.
It's a shame so many pirated it and used youtube for it, maybe it would have actually I don't know, been a resounding hit, if people actually watched it legitly.
You gotta love that. "OH man, it's dying yet we all love it! You want to see it, lawl go watch youtube." And we wonder why it didn't last longer. =/
But what do you expect when stuff like this happens, including early proclaimations of death. The nails started going in and no one stopped it. Just pushed it along to it's demise.
Thanks alot fans.
Maybe we'll get lucky and the next series will be a spin off. Or CN will salvage it with a spin off since they still have ownership. It did perform better than Ben 10 AF, and Ben 10 is getting a new series.
To bad I'm asleep at 6:00i in morning.
I remember when I was little there was the Ghostbusters movie and then they did a Ghostbusters cartoon. The cartoon was nothing like the movie and was just horrible. It wasn't even the same characters and had a Scooby Doo feel to it. The only thing it had was the name Ghostbusters. Then they finally did The REAL Ghostbusters and it was awesome. Animated was like the crappy Ghostbusters which is why I think kids didn't like it. Kids that loved the movie probably saw the cartoon and were like "That's not Bumblebee" or Optimus...Hopefully, the next series will be The REAL Transformers.
This is kinda going to hurt sales for Animated a bit IMO but maybe the ROTF movie will help it limp on at least until we get Rodimus and Arcee. But this in my book officially make CN the culprit and a bunch of Beyotches.
I hate everything on cartoon network my kids are bored by it and adult swim is down right terrible now. Think I might block this channel just cause.
Do not feed the Troll.
That's kinda harsh. 3 Seasons and upcoming new toys in 2009-2010 seem to suggest some measure of success. Hasbro could be giving us new Universe toys instead but they're not.
The first filmation ghostbusters wasn't related to the movie at all. Different scenario entirely.
TFA on the other hand, had fine ratings, better than some other CN flagship shows. And yet still died. Hasbro had already decided to move forward with something else, saying that CN could continue it if they wished. Honestly, I put the blame on it dying from the fan responses. If more of us actually watched the airings, or the legit stream of the episodes, maybe it would have been renewed by CN as profitable. As it is, CN has just had a gaping black hole for animated, it sucking money in, with no return, because everyone who's a 'fan' of it, goes off to get it their own way instead of supporting it.
I blame CN for their lack of quality cartoons as of late, but when it comes to animated, there's no one to blame but the fans/leeches who just assume people will make things for them because they like it, even though they've never supported it in any fashion other than a few toys. Which sure makes hasbro happy, but they aren't the ones footing the bill for animated's show. If this is how we the fans support shows, tell me, why should CN even bother?
Why the BLOODY HELL do Hasbro and CN hate TFA so damn much?
I'm more surprised that Animated was actually allowed to finish before Cartoon Network dumped it out of "the good time slot". IIRC, CN has a track record of dumping TF shows in horrible time slots, usually before they wrap up (the Unicron Trilogy).
that bites.....oddly enough I noticed that CN never airs the first 3 episodes of animated ("tarnsform and roll out 1, 2, and 3)...i wonder why
They easily could have produced many more episode by giving more screen time to the bot that we only saw a few seconds in on average two episodes. Increase from 2 up to 4 or more episodes each and from just 10 seconds to at least 1 min screen time in each episode.
It fells like they wasted many chances to tell more stories or continue existing ones for the background characters.
Do any of you feel like they did a better job with the background characters then the companies had intended?
Instead of random drones with 5 sec screentime they got real transformers with serious thought out history etc?
I don't think it was so much as Hasbro anymore. I think CN was giving them the run around and more than likely wanted more than they were getting. Hasbro said that's a no go and talked to Discovery and BOOM this is CN's back lash.
IMHO: Good riddance. I never cared for it; the characters redesigned were mildly interesting for me at best. I agree with some of other comments about a failed link between the BayFormers and TFA. Might have helped.
Personally, I would have loved to have seen something more modern - maybe a GI Joe Resolute style G1 re-imagining, which could pull in the Classics/Universe line to boot.
The idiot who decided to cancel Transformers Animated just a month before a new Transfomers movie was released should be fired.
Unless, of course, that they know something that we don't and they are ready to release a movie-related Transformers series.
That's so true.
No wonder Hasbro finally told 'em to fuck off and bought half a channel.
It is like you read my mind. I too am waiting for the REAL Transformers to come. Hopefully the next cartoon is much better.
Well, so much for trying to catch reruns to catch up with my DVD-R this summer.
(At least there's YouTube still... I hope).
CN's startin to blow a little
