Amazon Studios: Buy The Code Lyoko Property Rights From Dargaud Media

Background: Code Lyoko is the only cartoon we know that features both 2D and 3D animations, and it's one of the best and underrated childhood shows on television. For those of us who remember the time when we first watched our favorite as a child, we noticed that nothing new has happened since it last aired. Here's The Problem: It all started when Cartoon Network decided to pull Code Lyoko off from the cable channel because of its failed negotiations with France 3. Since then, we ended up getting a pair alternate continuities of the incomplete Live-Action (Real World)/CGI (Lyoko) sequel of Evolution and the unreadable four-novel series of Chronicles. The current property of Dargaud Media doesn't have any plans for our favorite show after acquiring the now-defunct Moonscoop's assets. Code Lyoko needs a proper continuation of the original animated series because of the three key factors that are incomplete. Unanswered Questions (Lore of the Series) The Respective Backstories of Franz Hopper & Aelita Schaeffer The Disappearance of Anthea Hopper (Aelita's Mother) The Details of Project Carthage (Military Program) The Reason Why Hopper Wished to Destroy The Project Undercovered Character Developments Jeremy's Appearances on Lyoko Ulrich and Yumi's Relationship William's Redemption XANA's Voice & Physical Form (Doesn't Include Possessing People) The Lyoko Warriors' Respective Family Issues The Incomplete Ending (Regardless of The Non-Cliffhanger) Not Enough Closure Relationships Not Finalized Having Yet to Graduate Kadic Academy Never Said "The End" or "Fin" Solution: We need better ownership as the right people who know what they're doing by making Code Lyoko a complete overhaul. So, our goal is to have Amazon Studios buy the Code Lyoko intellectual property rights from Dargaud Media as the first of several steps to make a proper continuation. Make plans to renew the original Code Lyoko series for its fifth season and possibly beyond on Amazon Prime Video. Review the first ninety-seven episodes of the four-season run on YouTube as a requirement for the experienced directors, writers, animators, and voice actors, before putting Code Lyoko back in production. Fill in the gap of answering the unsolved questions without adding it, giving the underrated characters in needs of development, covering real-life and family issues, and finalizing relationships. Make sure to respect the original material by using the traditional 2D and 3D animations as well as making new seasons and episodes much more of a serious or darker tone to keep the older viewers interested in finishing the series as a complete overhaul, before putting up the final ending. Otherwise, it would be the same mistake that already happened before will lead the viewers who watched the show as a child/teenager between the years of 2003 to 2007 will forgo the new content. Benefit To Who? The solution to having Season 5 and beyond within the original Code Lyoko series will benefit viewers who are now teenagers and younger adults. Please sign and share the petition to get our favorite show the final answers that we deserve, regardless of today's kids.

Petition to The Walt Disney Company, Douglas Wood, Baby Einstein

Revive Disney's Little Einsteins With a Third Season

Little Einsteins was created by Douglas Wood. The show started out as a Disney DVD one-hour special pilot in August 23, 2005 as "Little Einsteins" Our Big Huge Adventure. Afterward the show premiered in October 9, 2005 on Playhouse Disney (of the Disney Channel) and ended on December 22, 2009. Little Einsteins was designed to teach the target demographic art and music appreciation by integrating famous or culturally significant art works (usually, but not exclusively, paintings) and classical music (most typically from the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic periods) into the scenery, plot and soundtrack of each episode. The show is also designed to encourage viewer interaction (such as patting their knees, gesturing or singing along to help the characters succeed on their "mission"); at the end of the mission, Leo says "Mission Completion!" and the Little Einsteins then do the Curtain Call. At the end of the Curtain Call, Leo says, "See you on the next mission!", then the curtains close and in season 2 a "That's Silly" segment is shown.   More recently, there have been videos posted on YouTube of a remix of the Little Einsteins theme song. It became a trend on Vine in 2015 and as of November 2016, has gained 50 million views on YouTube and 11 million plays on SoundCloud.   After that trend, it would be really great to see the Little Einsteins revived with a third season or a possible reboot. So let's make that happen.

Bring old kids TV shows back for the children of today

Summary: With the lack of attention that older cartoons face, most of them get pushed into the vaults of the past where they're forgotten forever. One prime example is Nickelodeon and its programs under the Nick Jr banner. Modern children deserve a chance to learn from and be entertained by kid shows of the past.Personal story: As a child, I grew up with children's television shows like Blue's Clues, Dora the Explorer, The Backyardigans, Lazytown, and so many others. There are other people who, like myself, grew up with these shows and others. And there are people, like myself, who enjoy watching shows for a younger demographic because of either the memories they had, or to share their childhood memories with their children or younger relatives. Not to mention that the mentioned shows and all the rest of them still have lessons to be taught, lessons that children can hold on to for life.The issue: For years, children's television was made to both educate and entertain the young people of the family. But as time goes on and the techniques used to create these kinds of shows improves, the memories of the past fades with time. But some of these memories of watching your favorite TV shows from the old days last for a lifetime, and these memories should be preserved. For example, many people have fond memories of watching the show Lazytown, but the four season long show, which taught the importance of being active and eating healthy among other topics, never saw a DVD release in the United States. Another example, the show Little Bill was pretty much forgotten about when it ended its run on television. The show also taught important life lessons to children, such as Family Dynamics and Friendship Skills. How could the general public forget about the values of these shows and many others? And to add to the case, the fact that The Rugrats Movie was on Netflix, a film owned by Nickelodeon and Viacom, when Viacom has no current contract with Netflix to stream their content to viewers, and to top it off, Viacom has a current contract with Hulu and Amazon to air their content on their respective platforms, and the Rugrats movie was on Netflix during the current contract. If Netflix can get away with that, then why can't they simply agree with negotiable terms with Viacom to air their shows and movies? And to rub salt into the wound, metaphorically speaking, Hulu and/or Amazon charge subscribers $1.99 just to watch ONE EPISODE of ANY Nick Jr shows at a time! If that's not highway robbery, I don't know what is!Take action! I believe that these memories, as well as the memories of shows for kids that recently got their run ended or cancelled, should be preserved for various reasons. One of which is the lessons they teach. For example, their were several airing of a commercial featuring a child who was too lazy to get up and do things on his own, including walking his dog and getting a grape soda himself, or even turn off a light by walking to the switch and turning it off. This issue could easily be solved by releasing Lazytown on Netflix and/or season box set DVD, for both collector's sake and convenience. Plus, if these shows are not brought back for the children of today, then children may just not be able to learn the lessons they teach and may, theoretically, lose the key to unlocking all the "magic" that every parent knows is inside of them. Let both Viacom and Nickelodeon know that you care, and want to see your old favorite children's television programs become available on platforms that you have and/or can afford.
