Speaking of movies, what would be the studio to adapt Garfield into a major motion picture? My odds are on:
-Disney/Fox(Because of the OTL movies as well as Garfield and Friends airing on Toon Disney.)
-Columbia(Because they're owned by CBS, which G&F was a staple of for years.)
-Hollywood Pictures(Because Garfield has ties to the Bally theme parks.)

I could be wrong about my reasons, though.

Will the election be the next post. I hope commu gets a second term. Late time we mention the primary McCain over took Winesinte. Did McCain get the nomination. If he did whose his running mate. Part of me I hope Mccain won't be dumb enough to winesitne as his runnig mate because McCain is one of the better republicans (He was a moderate and anit trump). On the other .hand like the idea of Winesine getting on the republican ticket and his woman abusing comming out during being the final nail in the republican coffin(the firs). I also like the idea of Ross perrot reform party becomes a major party. I that at least 2 other major party form to compete with the republican party and the democarts. If McCain dosn't chose winestine in 96 then perhaps Winestine gets on the republcain ticket in 2000. Also may be the democrat ticket in 2000 also gets in a scandal result in a victory for the refrom party in 2000

Could the OTL Cut song "Biggering" be included here?
 
I vote for making the Baltic film about Togo instead. The dog who did most of the hardest parts of the race that was overshadowed in real life by Balto. Not to mentions Togo had many litters in real life. Possible sequel potential.
You had me at the possibility that justice will be served to the true story, but we all know people would overlook that if it means a franchise could be made from Togo's story.

Honestly Togo's story sounds pretty well suited for an animated film. He was scrawny when he was young so it was doubtful he'd be a sled dog. He got sick. Didn't get along with other dogs. Picked a fight with a Lead dog he got badly hurt in and was sold but escaped and made the long journey to reunite with his master. Saved his whole team at least twice. Once by jumping into ice cold water to push the team to safety, and lived in luxury for most of the later part of his life, in addition to the puppies thing.

1: This is a good show, but nothing too special as far as I'm aware.
2: Since this series is a Nicktoon while Hey Arnold! is on Saturday Mornings, would the football head last as long on television as he did IOTL?
3: Speaking of which, may I recommend launching the Friday Night Nicktoons block alongside the next three shows? It just seems fitting, after all.
