I just noticed that Toon Disney is airing pokemon movies.I hate how TD is using pokemon and other disney channel cartoons (and Jackie Chan Adventures)to become popular.Anyone have differents thoughts?

I dunno, I think that it's actually good that they're airing good old shows like Jackie Chan Adventures, Digimon, and even Beyblade. It's the only network I'm able to see these shows on now, and even then, I watch the spanish version of TD, which, ironically, has these shows' airings in English. I think they just showed Pokémon 4Ever a few weeks ago, and that's a movie I haven't seen in a good while, so it's a welcome refresher for me. But that's just my two cents.

They're just airing the Miramax movies (which Disney owns), so it's a good idea. Besides, they need whatever coverage they can get.

What are you talking about?? Pokemon is the most popular thing in the world. All my friends play it.
I think they should play pokemon on CNN and C-SPAN because it's a beautiful, philosophical show that everyone watches anyway.

Pokemon? Philosophical? Aside from the moral of "Always do your best and never give up", and the "Always be kind to others" moral, which show up in nearly every Shonen series I've ever read/watched, Pokemon doesn't have too much of a philosophy. I think we just watch Pokemon because we're familiar with the characters, and the series just has a certain "feel" to it that we like. That's just my opinion, no need to yell at me for expressing it if you don't agree.
And... TD is owned by the Disney company, last I checked, so yelling at it for "using Disney's stuff to become popular" really doesn't make much sense.
Oh yeah, and Pokemon is not a Disney Channel cartoon, is it? I mean, I watch all my anime online nowadays, so I'm a little out of touch.
