As Dreamers Do: American Magic Redux

Speaking of Nicktoons, what would be the third original Nicktoon without Ren and Stimpy? Anyone got ideas?

Mine is probably an earlier Rocko's Modern Life, imo.
I feel that nickoldean progming will be alot differnet form otl because Hanbara owns nickolean. I feel that many nicktoons would end up on warner freeform , cartoon network, boradcat tv or on cartoon express

I wonder if Turner Broadcasting has built the CNN Center yet?
For that matter I want to hear about the operations of all the media conglomerates. For example in the original American Magic, Marvel was based at 30 Rockefeller Center. Since Disney doesn't own NBC in this TL (it's owned by Coke), where is Marvel based? And is WPIX based out of the same building?
 
@OldNavy1988, I’m actually good with Rocko’s Modern Life happening earlier, to fill the Ren & Stimpy void as the third Nicktoon, also leaked info have confirmed that ITC/Central will announced the winner of the bidding war for is assets on September 20, and the Independent Television Commission have confirmed that winners of the ‘91 ITV franchise auction will be announced on October 16th.
 
I wonder if Sony has looked at buying a studio. Samuel Goldwyn Pictures, Carolco, and Amblin Entertainment might all be options.
 
Has Turner built the CNN Center yet?
Where is Disney's East Coast operations center?
CNN Center was originally built as the Omni Complex in 1976. CNN moved in in 1987.

Disney's East Coast operations are on Avenue of the Americas (aka Sixth Avenue) in Midtown Manhattan, in the same building where the NHL has its league office.

I have an idea for a sitcom. It deals with two girls whose dad remarried after their mom died in a car wreck to a former nun.
 
NOW....

For that third Nicktoon slot, I have three ideas...

- Ren and Stimpy with Bob Camp as TTL's creator.
- Ralph Bakshi's Tattertown.
- An earlier version of Canadian series What's with Andy?, which launched IOTL in 2001 on ABC Family in the US and Teletoon in Canada.

One stays, the others....go to Warner Freeform, MTV or TNT I guess.

And another thing, I was thinking of having Shezow start off as a Dark Horse Comic before being adapted to basic or premium cable by either Carolco or New Line. Might have a different title or main character name.

Any thoughts?

I would go with R&S as created by Bob Camp.
Meanwhile, I would locate Tattertown at Warner Freeform, while What's with Andy? waits a few more years before its debut.

I'd go for either Ren and Stimpy or Tattertown, but that depends on how different this iteration of Ren and Stimpy is without John K.'s influence.
 
A Brief History of the Henson Backlot as of 1991
MGMColonnade-page-3.jpg

Jim Henson Studios
Culver City, California


Located on the corner of Overland Avenue and Washington Boulevard.

Not to be confused with the Culver Studios, former home of Selznick International. IOTL, the former Selznick facilities are now home to Amazon Studios. IOTL, the backlot featured in this post is the home to Sony Pictures Entertainment since about 1990.

The lot opened in 1915, originally serving as the home to the short-lived Triangle Film Corporation.

In 1918, the lot became home to Goldwyn Pictures, founded by Samuel Goldwyn. Eventually, theatre owner Marcus Loew led a series of acquisitions and mergers that turned the tiny Goldwyn Pictures into Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.

The backlot served as the home of MGM from 1924 until 1981 when the film company was sold to Turner Broadcasting System.

In 1985, after a year in limbo, the lot was sold to Australian-born newspaper baron Rupert Murdoch to serve as a headquarters for his then-film division, Miramax Films.

In the summer of 1991, after losing nearly $40 million on the short-lived cable cartoon The George Liquor Show, Murdoch sold the lot to Michael Eisner, chairman of The Jim Henson Company.
