While I like Michael Ouweleen's discussion on greenlighting rejected projects, and think the network should go in that direction, I think later on Cartoon Network and Adult Swim should honestly just rebrand entirely into a more adult animation network with reruns of Hannah Barbara, DC, old CN/AS cartoons, and anime, but create new adult cartoons. It was never meant to be super kiddy to begin with, and the standards of what's considered acceptable on children's television has drastically changed since even the 90s and even early 2010s. The network seriously needs more variety in its schedule too.

And it should become some kind of live channel on Max rather than a cable network. I would even watch that with ads because it would be raising the budget for new animated shows, and bringing back old ones on the streaming service like Over The Garden Wall, Infinity Train, Dexter, etc.

It boggles my mind that shows like Fiona and Cake, Harley Quinn, Young Love, Close Enough, Villainous, Clone High, Final Space, the Total Drama Island revival, and Scavengers Reign aren't airing on the network. They should pick up more abandoned Netflix shows too like Inside Job. Tuca and Birdie deserved better from them though. They should also collab with Hololive for Toonami. They should collaborate with Crunchyroll, Studio Ghibli, and Toho too. Max already has.

I think the network needs more female protagonists too. If you think I'm "woke" for saying that, one of the leads in the network's schedule literally said that girls grow out of animation, and Lauren Faust has repeatedly gotten projects rejected just because they're girl shows. There is an actual sexism problem in the industry.

I don't think people understood my comment. By "popping off", I meant that Unicorn was successful, and I like that it was successful because I think it's a good show. I'm under the impression Unicorn was a well-liked show, so I imagine my comment was simply misinterpreted. Don't know how someone wouldn't know what "popping off" means, but whatever.
