Breaking: Vortexx To End September 2014 with Litton Entertainment to Take Over the CW Saturday Morning Block with “One Magnificent Morning”


With the recent announcement from MOMOcon in Atlanta – that Dragon Ball Z (in the form of Kai) would return to Toonami, one has to wonder if Saban’s second run of DBZ was to end?

Turns out, it is.

Along with the rest of the Vortexx block, confirming the end of the long – sometimes great, many times sour – but almost never boring Saturday Morning Franchise on Broadcast TV.

Litton Entertainment, the Government’s go-to folks for Governmental manure in the disguise of Education, Information and something else dealing with bad things, will take over the CW Block, formally in the hands of Saban, who will now pay a discharge fee because he couldn’t fulfill his contract.

I don’t want to say it was coming, but it was coming.

Let this be a reminder to those that try and beat Toonami? You cant. Disney Failed. Saban Failed. 4Kids Failed.

But this is more of a sad and final nail to the coffin that was American Childhood.

There is no peace from the ranting of adults, the overhand of the edutainment business, the food folks and the get fit gurus. There is only the pushing and prodding.

And that is what we have accepted for America’s Children, to become little robots like others.

The entities that run entertainment now control animation – in certain ways.

They can tell us what is animation and what isn’t.

They can also tell us what is good for us and what isn’t concerning the same franchises.

They can tell which international product is good and bad for us and have created criminal organizations (such as crunchyroll) in hopes they can curtail its influence.

And now, even when education in the major cities is mostly failing – the FCC is too busy lining their pockets with Comcast Money, AT&T Money – doubles down on a failed idea because it has no control over TV otherwise.

They never really did.

There is a legacy in Saturday Morning:

That legacy will always be remembered as a time and a place where rest was needed. For new ideas and pure truths that flowed.

For in that short time, you were important.

Only a few men and a few puppets did better.

So on August, as more TV traditions end, for newer and bigger insanities…

Remember the good times.

Of CBS in the 1960’s

Of ABC in the 1970’s

Of NBC of the 1980’s

On Fox Kids…

Of Kids WB

The Fox Box…

One Saturday Morning

CBS Action Zone (the precursor to Toonami)

4Kids TV

Toonzai

Vortexx.

This the grand Legacy of days gone by.

Of Broadcast TV’s Heart and Soul.

This is the end of the chapter, and of its existence

But never the end of its memories.
