You're right about the theme song but wrong about the Pokémon.

The theme song got much worse after they pulled the original one. I just hated it. Fucking Orange Islands shit!

Anyway in the show they do indeed enforce the 6 Pokémon rule. When Ash gets his Krabby in the episode where they go to see Bill in the Lighthouse the Krabby is sent back to Professor Oak. Ash is surprised and looks into it only to realise that he can only carry 6 Pokémon. When he touches base at home he switches his team up as necessary but since so many of his Pokémon take off that's not very necessary. Oak is also holding his Muk and a bunch of Tauros that Ash caught in an episode which was never dubbed making for a very confusing joke about Oak having a bunch of Tauros in a latter episode.

The Safari Zone episode with the Tauros was cut because of someone putting a gun to someone else's head.

i read about those episodes that were cut. one was about 'childrens day' or something. its some holiday in japan but it didnt make sense to americans so they cut it. i believe it was shown in australia.

and there was some episode that was cut because of cross dressing.

and there was that joke about the 'cow-terpie' that also didnt make sense.

whats the deal with brock? how old is he supposed to be?
go figure

The cross dressing episode, where James had breats, was eventually translated and brought over here just much later.

I can't remember about the children's day but I think they did have another "lost episode" they eventually brought over with a something day but I thought that was girl's day or something. Can't remember as that was towards the end of my watching.

It would be neat if say YTV put on a flash back Sunday with all the late great shows. Kind of like a marathon or maybe a weekly thing. Then some of the old kick ass stuff might catch on again with a younger generation and recapture old fans.
Hell, I think it would work. (All of the shows are tried and true so advertisers would not be hard to find). What do you think?
(Yes I just partially commandeered this thread)

Fired off a well written email to YTV about the idea of a flash back special. It would probably help if some other people sent off emails to them suggesting a similar idea.

Just think, if they like the idea all the best cartoons and shows will get a new breath of life. (even if they are on only once) But hey think about Bots Master hitting the air again! If this thing works i might plotz :)

I can't do this alone so it would help alot if just one or two backed me up. Send a list with kool shows along too. Oh and tell them how it would benefit them to put this old school shit back on. :)

Peace and Good Luck to all who email YTV
Go here and email 'Gen Info'... I think

you know what else they should put back on?

dino riders!

I have no idea what that is. I used to regularly e-mail YTV and teletoon with programming suggestions. I never felt anyone was passing that stuff along so I sort of gave up.

a couple of years ago an australian TV station started showing 'Eerie Indiana' during the school holidays. it developed a cult following (among me and one other person).

then the bastards took it off the air.

so i tried emailing them and stuff but they didnt listen.

'dino riders' was a cartoon (80s?) about soldier people who rode dinosaurs and put guns on them. or something. i cant remember much of it

What a lot of bull shit! This is a template email, not one specific detail of what i said. Those dumb ass @#@!#!*#1)*1)_*@! Thay can't even send me a decent email, the last part is an ad for their 'new' line ups.
I know why they find it difficult to please their viewers... THEY DON"T EVEN READ THEIR EMAILS!!! .I.

I have the right mind to crash their site!
Nah, i'm too nice for that... damn my moral upbringing :)

dino riders was an ok show (i only saw like 3-4 of them, too bad)

The old Eerie was an amazing show i saw almost every one. That show was like a kiddie Twilight Zone!

They need to make a cable network of k00l cult shows... that would kick alot of ass! :)

Hoyl carp! They're playing Batman Beyond again? Sweet Jesus I miss that show. I'm so watching that every day once I'm done with my job.

I had a great thought.
no matter how hard you try no matter what you do, no one will ever listen to you. I think i'll just let the networks do what they want and never try again (i think everyone should do this as well). What a wast of my time. I feel like such an idiot. Petitions and letters just piss people off (or make them laugh). F*CK them! (the network)

Ok, the show was good but i am no longer going to wast my time. I'll chell back in a few weeks to see if aDam has done anything and hope that at least one ep has made it on an ftp or some other medium. (oh well, lived this long, hope to live longer).
