    Great platform for the animation lover. I like all the stories. Of them I like the "room on the broom" most. I like animation to enjoy & make for others of 60 seconds.

    I just wanted Eric Goldberg to quit Disney & work for Cartoon Network by making the second half of Animaniacs Season 6 in DUCK Studios. So unhappy. :(

    Let me give my two cents.

    First of all, I don't want to see anymore people leaving Disney any time soon. Second of all, I doubt there's going to be anymore "Animaniacs" right now (Ruggers and Stones are at Disney Television). Third of all, Cartoon Network doesn't have the rights to show Animaniacs, Hub does.
