The Hub Network's Biggest Screw-Ups

I know I should be completing my To-Do List, but I just feel the need to do this.

What I'm gonna do here is list the Biggest Screw-Ups of the Hub Network. As you all know, the Hub Network was Supposed to be the "Cool" Family Network. After the Constant Failures of Disney and Viacom, TV viewers (myself included) were ready for a Superior Family Network.

At first we were pleased....well somewhat. The Network was greatly flawed, but had the potential to get better. Though, it was much better than the Disney Channel and the Nick Networks. Things started getting better slowly. The Hub started airing cool shows and even created it's own version of Toonami, HuBoom. The only huge flaw The Hub had was the fact that it aired the same lame movies every single month. The only upside to that was that the Hub Family Movie was solely a Weekend thing, with 2 Movies on Saturday and 1 Movie each on Fridays and Sundays.

But it wasn't long before Things went Horribly wrong. Nikki Reed,Former Disney Executive,was brought in as the Network's Program Director. Reed quickly became radical loyalist of Discovery Communications and followed their orders with no Question. With Reed in charge of Programming,the Discovery Networks had a Perfect Puppet to do what they asked without Question. And Soon The Hub Network became a Clone of The Disney Channel.

And Now The American Cartoon Federation Presents: The Hub Network's Biggest Screw-Ups.

1 - Getting Rid of HuBoom. This Block had the potential to be the Next Toonami. But sadly Discovery Communications has decided that the block was too expendable.

2 - Removing and Suppressing the Cool Cartoons. Seriously, This needs no explanation, just look at their Current Line-Ups. All the Cool Animated stuff is on Early in the Morning. 

3 - Giving WAY too much airtime to the Girly and Pre-School Crap. Screw Littlest Pet Shop, I want my Dan Vs.

4 - Overly Promoting the Girly and Pre-school Garbage. What Shit-Headed Losers.

5 - Airing the Hub Family Movie Every Day (with a 2nd airing). This is Seriously stealing Airtime for the Sitcoms.

6 - Suppressing and removing Sitcoms. Some were moved to very very late at Night, While others were moved very early in the Morning. Some were even removed from the line-ups all together.

7 - Suppressing the Cool Live Action Shows. I really Hate the fact that Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Lois and Clark air at Unreasonable times (very late at night and very early in the morning).  

8 - Unneeded Censorship. They feel they need to Censor Every Family Movie that they air. Dumbing them down for small children. And it's not just movies, it's Old Animated Shows too. Any Episode of a show that has a mature or sensitive theme in it, the Hub Network will never air it with the rest of the series. Stupid! Just because a show or movie, that's supposed to be for Everybody, has some slight mature themes to them,doesn't mean that it needs to be censored for the babies. Those Movies and Shows are for ALL , not just for that tiny insignificant demographic.

 9 - Turning the Hub Network into a Kiddie Network. There is a heavy difference between a Family Network and a Kiddie Network, Seriously.

10 - Ridding the Network.of All Retro Sitcoms. This is coming soon. I assure you.

11 - Failing to see the Potential this Network has.  

With all of the above, The Hub Network has gone from okay to bad...And things are about to get worse. Much worse. 

Screw You, Discovery Communications! You Suck!

Life or Death Awaits....The Death of the Ultimate Warrior!




This is an ACF Special Bulletin, and it's a sad one.

Let's take a moment from all the crusading for animation and talk about the one other thing me and Stefan have a lot in common: wrestling.

Yes it's true, me and Stefan are fans of wrestling, mostly with the old school variety and some modern ones like Kofi Kingston and Daniel Bryan.  Although I am not a big fan what I use to be, but I still like the good ol' days when it's less talk and more action, except with people like Hulk Hogan and the Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin and such.  Where am I going with this, you ask?  I'll tell you.  It is about the one wrestler I was a big fan of growing up in the 90s and that's the Ultimate Warrior.

James Brian Hellwig, better known the wrestling world as the Ultimate Warrior, has died, a few days after WrestleMania and one day after RAW.  He was 54 years old.  The Ultimate Warrior was one of my favorite wrestlers growing up back when wrestling was entertaining at best.  He was known for his wild, aggressive style in the ring, whether it's shaking the ropes or going berserk towards his opponent and the one noticeable trait is his facepaint.  Prior of being the Ultimate Warrior, he was once partners with the man who eventually became the man known as Sting, another favorite wrestler of mine and Stefan's.  The Warrior was best known for tree things and this is what I remember:

1.  Beating the Honky Tonk Man for the Intercontinental Championship as quickly as the Elvis wannabee held it for long time at Summerslam 88.

2. The big one.  Winning the WWF championship at WrestleMania VI by beating another legend, Hulk Hogan. And....

3. Defeating The Late "Macho Man" Randy Savage in a Career Match at WrestleMania VII. Truely a Legendary battle between Legends.

Although my favorite, the Warrior was no stranger to controversy.  First, changing his name from Jim Hellwig to Warrior for starters. Then, the Warrior was one of many wrestlers who were tested for steroids at the time.  The Warrior isn't the smartest guy in the world, but he is not perfect, none of us are.  This cause so much problems for many years between him and the WWE.  So much that they went so far, making an unauthorized documentary called "The Self Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior" where those who knew him bashed constantly (unless they were paid to say stuff like that).  Besides, I don't want to remember the Warrior for his troubled behavior, I want to remember him for he once was, a decent wrestler who understood this business more than anybody and...he gets my blood pumping everytime I see him and/or listen to his theme music.

Fast forward to today. After all this hostility all these years ago, it was finally buried once and for all, when the Warrior, along with Jake "The Snake" Roberts and Scott Hall aka Razor Ramon, were inducted to the WWE Hall of Fame. After all these years, the Warrior finally got the respect he so rightfully deserves.  No word on the cause of his death, but it's all the years of steroids and pain killers that has come back to haunt him, almost in the same manner that Eddie Guerrero went through.  He is survived by his wife, Dana and his two daughters.

Update: We have learned that the Warrior died from natural causes.

Whether you love him or hate him, the Ultimate Warrior has left his mark on the wrestling world.  And I know it sounds silly but, when I do things I like to do and I know Stefan does, too, we all have a little Warrior within ourselves.  And we will continue to use his essence to do the things we like to do. I will leave you now with his final speech before he died and believe me, they couldn't be more true.  Godspeed, Warrior and like the quote from Soul Caliber:

"THE LEGEND WILL NEVER DIE!"

“No WWE talent becomes a legend on their own. Every man’s heart one day beats its final beat, his lungs breathe their final breath. And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others, and makes them bleed deeper, than something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized by the storytellers, by the loyalty, by the memory of those who honor him and make the running the man did live forever.

“You, you, you, you, you, you are the legend makers of Ultimate Warrior.

“In the back I see many potential legends, some of them with warrior spirits. And you will do the same for them. You will decide if they live with the passion and intensity. So much so that you will tell your stories and you will make them legends as well. I am Ultimate Warrior. You are the Ultimate Warrior fans. And the spirit of Ultimate Warrior will run forever.”

The Queen Has Become A Goddess!

It's Official Anne Sweeney is No longer the Retard Queen, but is now the Retard Goddess. Apparently she thinks it'd be great to air Baby shows on Disney XD. It was bad enough that she insisted that the Girly Bullshit air on XD, but now she wants to air Baby Shows on that network too.

Here's just one of the stories that proves my claim: http://www.broadwayworld.com/bwwtv/article/Kelly-Osbourne-Shares-First-Look-at-Her-Disney-XD-Animated-Character-20140403#.U0A8SVfA_k9

And worse still Bob Iger Approves of this. Ugh! Sweeney will Never Get it. She will Always be their to assault our intelligence  Under Sweeney (and possibly Iger), Disney will Always Fail. Why? Because Sweeney (and maybe Iger) will always Spit and Piss on the Smart TV watchers.

For more info on this show, go here: http://disney.wikia.com/wiki/The_7D

We can't afford to wait until Sweeney Retires Next year. We Need to act NOW! For the Good of not only the American viewing public, but also for Disney's survival.

So it's now official, Anne Sweeney is Now a Retard Goddess. F-You, Sweeney!!! Iger, You Suck!

Oh, I'm thinking of starting a twitter account, just for my activism.

I So Miss The Eisner Era :(
