Restarted With A Mouse: A Pop Culture Timeline

Yes. It would be about them fighting a group of villains lead by Xerek (a scrapped antagonist from an early version of the movie). Also Pixar(HA) and Nickelodeon both being owned by Henson means The X's doesn't exist ITTL
Ah. So The X's turns into this? Nice. Also, there was a scrapped villain?
That part I haven't quite figured out but I do know that some of that show's staff works on the Eddsworld TV show ITTL, so I'll say it has something to do with that

I'm going to say no for 2 reasons
Ah.
1. Inkblot still airs a lot of anime on their schedule as of 09-10 so CN could try and attempt to use Toonami as a less adult alternative to Inkblot's anime shows
2. Toonami wasn't really gone for too long. It was gone for about 3.5 years which is definitely lengthy but it's not like it still being on the network during that time would drastically change the network's programing as much as some people would think
Understandable.
So in RWAM, Toonami is still in version 4 (I think that's the one with the faces) in 2010. But like I have said before, my knowledge on anime is fairly limited and I don't talk about it much because of it
oh.......I could help out with anime-related affairs.

The 2000's were an interesting time for the House of Mouse. On one hand, they revolutionized animation with Treasure Planet and Meet the Robinsons both using dual-animation to make hand drawn characters interact too near perfection with computer generated environments. On the other hand, movies like American Dog and Chicken Little didn't quite resonate as well with audiences compared to their previous films. Similar things could be said about their recent dives into sports ownership as while the Mighty Ducks have won multiple championships, the Chargers have mostly been a laughing stock to most football fans. Notable films currently in production at Disney include a movie based on Winnie the Pooh, a sequel to Tron and a live action remake of Alice in Wonderland directed by Tim Burton.

Blue Sky's Ice Age has become one of the biggest animated franchises to be created in the past 10 years and other movies like Robots and Horton Hears A Who have also proven to be financially profitable. The next major animated feature set to come from the studio is Rio, which focuses on the relationship of two macaws in the titular city.

Like Disney, The Jim Henson Company had their fair share of ups and downs. Founders William Hanna and Joseph Barbara sadly passed away during the decade and Pixar head John Lasseter was ousted after a series of allegations against him became public. At the same time however, they would also make some of the most critically acclaimed movies of all time and quietly become one of the biggest media conglomerates ever. Fans of the studio are looking forward to their future projects such a brand new Muppet movie set to be released in 2011 and more great anime films from Studio Ghibli, with a dub of Arrietty set to come to America in either 2011 or 2012.

In a shocking turn of events, Cheryl Disney would end up starting her own company early on in the decade. The studio got off to a fast start with the release of Cars in 2006, which also marked the return of John Lasseter after his exit from Pixar. CTE has been steadily releasing several different films and TV shows since then, with hopes of a major rise similar to that of The Jim Henson Company. A Cars sequel is already set for a 2011 release, with both Newt and The Bear and the Bow also being released in the near future. However, supposed rumors of creative disagreement overall general mismanagement have plagued the studio since it's inception, but these can not be confirmed.

I thought that Hanna Barbara properties were own and were being released by Touchstone Pictures and not Warner Bros. like in OTL. Was this an oversite or did Scooby Doo get actually got released by the Warner's like in OTL.

Will they expand?

Oversight, it has been fixed.
Interesting. How does Disney X-D form ITTL?
Similar to how it did in our timeline
What about Fox Family/Fox Kids?
Fox Kids still got replaced in the early 2000's. Do you mean the family channel or fox family films? TFC still got purchased by Henson and rebranded as ABC Family in 2001, while FFF/Fox Animation do still exist as mostly branding to other animated movies released by Fox that weren't made by Blue Sky
Why would they have ABC Family when they already have Nickelodeon?
Because they purchased Fox Family (channel) ITTL. Plus ABC Family and Nickelodeon are targeting pretty different markets, it's like saying why would Universal have Bravo when they also have Sci-Fi
Who owns the other Viacom networks and UPN then?
UPN still merged with The WB to become CW. CW is co-owned by Warner and CBS, I didn't really know how to illustrate that since CBS isn't included on here so I just elected to ignore it. Viacom still own the rest of their networks
So who owns the Turner networks?
Another oversight, fixed to have them added to WB's section
Will they expand?
CTE is going to be a major focus ITTL going forward so we'll definitely see what happens

Ok. So Jetix still exists? I'd imagine Henson brought the Family Channel while Disney bought the Saban library?

Family Channel.

And what did Fox Kids get replaced by ITTL?
Because they purchased Fox Family (channel) ITTL. Plus ABC Family and Nickelodeon are targeting pretty different markets,
So Nick's for younger kids and ABC Family's for teenagers?

Or is Nick the boys channel while ABC Fam is for girls?
it's like saying why would Universal have Bravo when they also have Sci-Fi
That has nothing to do with this. Nick and Family at one point in time targeted a similar audience.

Oh.....Can't wait to see what happens.
 
what did Fox Kids get replaced by ITTL?
Fox Box/4Kids, like IOTL
So Nick's for younger kids and ABC Family's for teenagers?

Or is Nick the boys channel while ABC Fam is for girls?

That has nothing to do with this. Nick and Family at one point in time targeted a similar audience.
I guess the best answer I could give to your question is that the early years of ABC Family was trying to go for more of a teenage demographic. By 2006, they realized that the channel would better suited for family dramas and sitcoms so most of those shows stopped airing on the channel

My earliest memories of ABC Family was watching 25 Days of Christmas in the early 2010's, so your comment pretty much looked like "Why would they have the network that airs Switched at Birth when they already have the SpongeBob Network?" to me. So that's just a case of me not being as informed on that subject
Oh.....Can't wait to see what happens.
All I'm going to say is that they will live up to the Crazy part of their name
