A classic cartoon network channel huh? Pretty much what boomerang used to be sounds like.

Because that would all be too much for WBD to actually do this as part of Max, right!? Hoo, boy… :roll:

They don't make money if it's on max but do if they ship it off to metv with ads.

Jerry will be a consultant of the channel and a producer of new interstitials. Here's more:
Jerry Beck wrote:Beyond the press release, everyone should know that there is much I CANNOT talk about (yet) as to what this new network has planned… but if you know me, read my books, know my blogs, you’ll have to take my word that this announcement today is just the tip of the iceberg.

Let’s go over what I can tell you: Number one – this is not another “Boomerang”. As best I can describe it – think 1992 Cartoon Network – TIMES 100. On steroids. Available for free. Everywhere.

It’s an over-the-air channel (like your local MeTV digital sub channel). And with your help, by consumer demand, it will also be available on a variety of cable systems and streaming services.

In addition to the entire Warner Bros. library of animated shorts, series and features (which you all know: Looney Tunes, Popeye, MGM, Tex Avery. etc), we’ll be mining the vaults at Sony (Columbia, UPA), Universal (Lantz, Harveytoons, Underdog, etc) and other major studios… We will also be resurrecting classic TV shows unavailable (in some cases) for over 50 years. Tip of the iceberg. Rocky and Bullwinkle, Speed Racer… stuff I can’t tell you about yet because we want to surprise you throughout the first year.

The are NO PLANS for this channel to ever produce new animation (as Cartoon Network did). This is a Classic Cartoon channel devoted to the history of animation.
Tantalizing! Now I'm even more excited.

When jerry was asked if looney tunes will be edited.
Here are two facts: 1. This channel is NOT aimed at or geared toward kids. It’s intended for adult viewers. 2. We at MeTV Toons have NO plans to edit cartoons. However, we may receive edited cartoons from their owners/distributors.

We at the channel respect the adult audience these cartoons were originally intended for. Don’t be quick to judge. The channel from day one will evolve and grow over the first year. Give us time. Fan feedback will be encouraged.

Also, real ghostbusters is confirmed to air on the new channel.

Jerry says baby looney tunes and kypto and there as all network channels must have a few hours of education shows. Bet smurfs and yogi's gang will air in that block also.
