T.A.S.K. Is Coming! Talking With Damion Gonzales About The New Animated Series
Nikolai Fomich wrote:Nikolai Fomich: Damion, what is T.A.S.K.?

Damion Gonzales:
First of all let me just say thank you for this opportunity to shine some light on this project. T.A.S.K. is an in development action adventure animated series featuring a diverse cast of all new super-powered individuals. Engaging characters thrown into incredible situations, young super-humans learning what it means to be heroes in the midst of learning how to just … be. All the BIFF! BAM! POW! you expect from good superhero fare. It’s our goal that T.A.S.K. follow in the footsteps of such great shows as Static Shock, Justice League Unlimited and Young Justice and bring that sense of wonder and excitement back to the kids’ viewing space. We’re trying to bring that Saturday morning cartoon rush back. The excitement that kids used to get from G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, Transformers, He-Man and ThunderCats.

Word Balloon 2/25/2015:
Super Hero TV talk w Arrow's Marc Guggenheim & Greg Weissman Of Young Justice & Star Wars Rebels
John Siuntres wrote:Great chance to talk with 2 TV writer producers who are at the top of live action television and animation. Both will be at Long Beach Comic Expo this weekend and have great insight on the current superhero explosion television is experiencing.

Writer- Exec Producer Marc Guggenheim talks about Arrow Flash. Given the success of both shows, it's no surprise that it was annouced this week that the characters Atom, Professor Stein and Black Canary are being devolped for their own future CW TV series. NOTE- This conversation took place before the announcement , but Marc did give insight about the success of introducing these new characters and in theory about expanding the DCU TV universe on The CW.

Then, Animation Writer Exec Producer Greg Weissman looks back at Gargoyles, Young Justice, Spectacular Spider-Man, his current work with Star Wars Rebels, and the realities behind producing comic book/toy adaptaions for kids television.

It feels that with Samurai Jack returning next month, Young Justice's revival in the works, and Voltron and Young Justice being big hit on Netflix that the American action carton has had something of a revival in the year and a half since the last post.

I think its more peoples voices are being heard. On cable or Network television, execs didn't give a hot how popular something was. If there was no toy revenue, it got cancelled. Now, with services like Netflix, where all you have to do is watch, a different metric is being used (the one that should have been used all along). I feel that if shows like Spectacular Spipder-Man, Thundercats (2011) etc... had been on Netflix after they were cancelled, probably something similar would have happened. Hopefully tis trend will continue. Hopefully more action-oriented shows will go straight to streaming services like Netflix rather than to the cable networks.
There are no more good TV Shows, only ones that haven't disappointed me yet.

I mentioned Young Justice twice! In the second instant I meant to say 'Trollhunters.'

^ So basically Garbage Out, Garbage In...and then there's Justice League Action, which wasn't even mentioned in the Article.

Sadly, it seems Clarence hasn't been renewed. That was a great show, descendent from Nick's '90s shows.

But anyway: action cartoons. If you want to be an action cartoon these days and you're not a brand owned by Disney then you want to be on Netflix. CN gives priority to shows they produce in-house, with Teen Titans Go only proliferating because it's a massive success.

ok...so apparently there is no shortage of Youtube videos of "Holding Out for a Hero" featuring cartoons from the 80's/90's etc... The One below is not my favorite, but of the few I watched, this one seems to be the most balanced. Not a fan of some of the live-action footage, but I think it overall gets the point across that there used to be something special on TV for kids and adults that is sorely lacking today.
