Yes please!

Anyway I'm with Penguintruth on this one. It's really weird to see this show not on Cartoon Network and it's infuriating to think the company rejected the show that(in truth) made them. I have Nicktoons so I won't miss out, but it sucks that this show won't get the audience it deserves.

On the other hand, CN is going down the crapper. Maybe it's best this show doesn't end up on Cartoon Network.By the way, I have a new show for CN. It's called "Destroy, Build, Destroy...Our Reputation."

Y'know... CN has this cool spin-off channel called Boomerang. They've had it for a long time now. It certainly takes the edge off and makes me hate CN less.

Yeah, Boomerang is basically what Cartoon Network was when it started out. Just like TV Land used to be what Nick at Nite used to be... Sigh.
Do you follow the most comprehensive and entertaining Dragon Ball analysis series on YouTube? If you do, you're smart and awesome and fairly attractive. If not, see what all the fuss is about without even having to leave Kanzenshuu:

I know, It helps a lot. Dexter's Lab for the win.


Still though, I hate coming home and going "I wounder what's on Cartoon Network....oh right, crap." The problem is, there really isn't much else to watch. Both Nick and Disney(though that's never been good) has gone to crap and now I'm reduced to nothing but Comedy Central and sometimes the movie channels. 400+ channels and only one of them has something good on. Oh well DBZ Kai will give me an excuse to watch TV again so yay!

As a child I watched The Mouse and his Child, both Unico films, The Last Unicorn, The Enchanted Journey, and so many other absolutely stellar classic animated films on the Disney channel- they introduced me to anime and taught me to love real quality animation. Then there were their early-mid 90's original shows (Ducktales, Gargoyles, need I really continue) and yes, Disney used to be good. Then Disney was ruined and Toon Disney was still good. Then Toon Disney became "Disney XD" and...

... basically I'm saying that as much as I love Boomerang, it doesn't look good for its future. The Powers That Be like to fuck with a good thing and ruin the format of perfectly good channels.

If cable's that useless to you, maybe you shouldn't have it. I know I wouldn't if it weren't for the girlfriend.

Hell, I don't even get Boomerang On Demand... and I have the damn channel. :|

If Dragonball Kai came on Sci-Fi at 10 PM, that would ROCK. But oh well.... :roll:

Just asking, if they didn't keep NARUTO of all things, what makes you think they'd grab Kai. It's tiny in comparison!

Family's choice not mine, and I'm going to need cable for Dragonball Z Kai now. Also I love OnDemand.

You kidding, I know so many people(outside of this site) that would have killed to see Kai go back on Cartoon Network. I've been out of the anime loop for awhile but I really don't know many people who are into Naruto much anymore. Most of the people I know like Naruto for awhile and got sick/annoyed with the series and just stopped caring. Also, most of them only liked it because it was the next best thing to Dragonball on TV.

You know if Anime actually aired on Boomerang(Besides Pocket Monsters folks) I think Kai would have aired on the channel and it's be pretty awesome.
It'd be cool to see the Flinstones then Dragon Ball Kai after that^^

I still wish it were on Syfy because at this point there's no need to edit anime, this aint the god dang 90s..

You should check out Flapjack or Adventure Time. Kids these days aren't entirely without great cartoons.

I unfortunately do not get Nicktoons, but thankfully a friend of mine promised to record the show as it airs on Nicktoons and give me copies of his recordings :).

I was wandering around on Sheezyart and came across this.

It seemed painfully appropriate somehow.

My opinion on the subject is that CN is stupid not to get Kai. Dragon Ball Z was CN's most popular show when it was airing, why the hell wouldn't they want to recreate that popularity with Kai?

Cartoon Network has moved on from Dragonball period. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw DB,DBZ,and DBGT on Nicktoons in the future.
Dragonball and One Piece are two totally different stories, except one author has a fanboy hard-on for another Author.

I think in the near future Cartoon Network will be switching its name; reality shows and live action don't belong on a channel called Cartoon Network.

It seems that Kai might actually be on Cartoon Network after all. Colleen Clinkenbeard left a message on Facebook thanking people for wishing her happy birthday, but she also said "Countdown til DBZ Kai airs on Nicktoons and Cartoon Network! :)" So... Will it really be airing on CN?! I hope so!! :shock:

Nah, it's 100% confirmed that it's going to air on Nicktoons.
