And They Just Can't Hide It

I used to go to a sometimes annual festival in Hollywood called The World Animation Celebration. It was a chance to see lots of animation and hear industry people talk about their stuff.

As I attended the various events I noticed there was one recurring phrase that seemed to herald... ANNOUNCEMENT OF WORTHLESS CRAP.

"We're very excited about our initiative to put excerpts from Scooby-Doo® on the world-wide web!"

"We're very excited about the opportunity to include officially licensed characters from Sabrina the Teenage Witch® in Happy Meals®!"

"We're very excited about our $38 million (Canadian) deal to develop Who Wants to Be a Millionaire®, starring Regis Philbin®, into a 72x30 syndicated afternoon cartoon series, in which Regis® will travel the globe fighting crime and deliver a positive message encouraging viewers in the 9-13 age bracket to just say no® to drugs!"

This is going to ruin the Pointer Sisters.
