Finish The Clone Wars - Giving the Show The Closure it Deserves

On March 11, 2013, LucasFilm Animation announced the end of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars tv show on StarWars.com. Their announcement stated that " LucasFilm has decided to pursue a new direction in animated programming," that "we feel the time has come to wind down the series," and that "fans can soon find this bonus content."  It is now been three years since the cancellation of the Clone Wars, and now more than ever, especially with the reemerging interest in Star Wars among the public, it’s time to finish the Clone War. After doing hours of research, there are a myriad of points and data that gives reason for Disney to reimburse and complete the Clone Wars. Reason #1: New Hype Reason #2: Disney has the Financial Power  Reason #3: Demand for The Clone Wars is Still There  Reason #4: Same Cast Would be Open to Returning  Reason #5: Good, Memorable Stories  Reason #6: Comparatively better ratings than other shows  Reason #7: Impressively Higher Viewer Count  Reason #8: Successful Track Record  Reason #9: Resurgence on Netflix  Reason #10: Disney has the Marketing Capacity  Reason #11: Past Popularity Can Be Beneficial  Reason #12: Can Help Build On Star Wars Rebels  Reason #13: Going in a “New Direction” Wasted a Good Opportunity Reason #14: Strong Female Characters  Reason #15: Development of a Wider Universe  Reason #16: Disney owns The Clone Wars For more information on the lists reasons above, please check out our website which host all these reasons in great detail! http://finishtheclonewars.wixsite.com/finishtheclonewars #FinishTheCloneWars

Restore And Release The Director's Cut of Thomas And The Magic Railroad

When Thomas And The Magic Railroad was released in the summer of 2000, the reception was negative and the reviews were unfavorable because of the story that seemed to have been off and when it was released in the UK, critics were unfamiliar with Shining Time Station and accused the film for Americanizing Thomas. Because of the poor reviews and the reception of the film, Writer/Director Britt Allcroft was forced to stand down as chairman of The Britt Allcroft Company and was renamed Gullane Entertainment and removed from the creative side of Thomas. Then In February of 2007, everything changed when a member of SiF found a copy of the script for Thomas And The Magic Railroad dated May 19th 1999. What was written inside the script and released in July 2000 was very different revealing major scenes and plots that were cut. The main villain, PT Boomer was described as a drifter through choice and was Burnett Stone's adversary and the one who crashed Lady not Diesel 10. PT Boomer was jealous of the relationship Burnett had with Tasha and he bullied Burnett into allowing him to take Lady for a ride and crashed her in revenge. Afterwards he left Shining Time and Burnett tried to restore her but to no avail. He returns forty years later, bent on completing his revenge by finding and destroying Lady once and for all. Boomer would spend most of his time throughout the movie confronting Burnett Stone and Billy Twofeathers and digging into Muffle Mountain looking for Lady. He doesn't have any connections with Diesel 10 and doesn't believe in magic. In March of 2000, Britt Allcroft had to do a test screening in a shopping mall and was forced to make drastic cuts. PT Boomer (played by Doug Lennox) was cut out of the film because parents said he was too frightening for the kids. Alongside with Doug Lennox was the original voice talent: Fireman and part time Taxi Driver, John Bellis became involved with the movie when he picked Britt Allcroft up from the airport. When Britt heard John utter a few words, she realized she found the voice of Thomas and offered him the part. When interviewed by BBC News, he said: "I'm a bit shell shocked and I have to keep pinching myself to remind myself that it had really happened." Unfortunately during the screening, test audiences didn't like his Liverpudlian accent that John used for Thomas and complained that he made Thomas sound too old. The part went to Eddie Glen. John Bellis said he was gutted but wished them well. Michael Angelis the UK narrator for Thomas, voiced James and Percy for the film, but test audiences argued that he too sounded too old and the parts for James and Percy went to Susan Roman and Linda Ballantyne. Australian actor Keith Scott voiced Diesel 10 but he was dropped when the test audience said he sounded too scary. The part went to Neil Crone who improvised most of the dialogue and first voiced Diesel 10 using a gruff Russian accent. Afterwards somebody was worried they might find it offensive so he had to do it again with more of a New Jersey accent. For the next few months Britt Allcroft and editor Ron Wisman worked on many revisions and finished in late June. Many years later, the cast and fans believed the film would have been less then a flop if the film stayed the way it was meant to be. Russell Means who played Billy Twofeathers supported a release for the director's cut and Britt Allcroft is trying to find a way to get it screened. Upon the discovery of the chase scene and the japanese trailer featuring PT Boomer, I decided to start this petition to restore and release the director's cut of the film by looking for the original film elements and re-edit PT Boomer scenes and the original voices back to Thomas And The Magic Railroad and try to rehire Hummie Mann to write a new musical score treatment since PT Boomer was gone by the time he arrived. With your support, we can bring Britt Allcroft's true film back from out of the shadows and into the light and make her dream come true.

Petition to Netflix, DHX Media, The Program Exchange, King Features Syndicate, General Mills

Revived Dennis the Menace (1986 Animated Series) on Netflix with Brand New Episodes.

Over 30th years ago, the animated series of Dennis the Menace was produced by DIC Entertainment (now owned by DHX Media) was aired on television from 1986 to 1988. It's last only two seasons with 78 episodes (234 segments) and continued running in the 90's and 2000's as well. Based on the popular classic comic strip by Hank Ketcham about Dennis Mitchell, a young blond-haired boy with cowlick who gets into numerous scrapes and adventures along his dog Ruff and his friends Joey, Margaret, Gina, Tommy, PeeBee and Jay. Especially he's getting into mischief that's which end up tormenting his hapless and grouchy next-neighbor, Mr. Wilson. Dennis get involved in all kinds of wild and crazy adventures, but always manages to  save the day. This popular animated is full with laugh, fun and adventure that catch it everyone's hearts for all ages. But what if American's favorite troublemaker is back for more excitement and more trouble? We fans very like to see this wonderful cartoon returns with brand new episodes for more fun, more adventures and more mischievous. It's not a reboot or remake, it's "REVIVAL"! With same energy, adventurous and humor of Hank Ketcham's spirit, but more advanced animation quality and richer colors in normal 2D traditional hand-drawn like it was before instead crummy CGI or choppy Adobe flash. The opening credits would be re-recorded version of original 80's theme and the closing credits will be new and different segment. Hopefully featuring the new voice casts for Dennis and his gang, plus the returning of the legendary voice actor (Maurice LaMarche from Pinky & the Brain and Futurama) as the voice of Henry Mitchell, Ruff and George Wilson ever since Phil Hartman die in 1998. And (Madeline: Stevie Vallance) as the voice of Martha Wilson and Alice Mitchell. If anybody are biggest Dennis the Menace fans out there, please sign this petition and we'll be extremely grateful if DHX Media, King Features, General Mills and The Program Exchange would bring back Dennis the Menace as the revival series on Netflix and if they could co-production with other animation studios from Japan and: or South Korea to do overseas animated this show. Everybody will enjoy Dennis and the rest lovable characters once again in new episodes and Direct-to-Video movie series. There is no other brats but with a kindhearted like Dennis the Menace.

Petition to Potential investors and banks.

We want a venue in Appleton, to book national metal, hardcore, punk and hard rock bands.

In order to secure financing and to obtain licenses and permits, I need to prove that my business has a market that it can thrive in and fit a need. One way to prove this market exists is to conduct a survey. Since a petition is essentially a survey, I have created this petition to identify and prove there is a market in the Fox Valley for such a venue. The target market is fans of metal, hardcore, punk, hard rock and any other more extreme styles of music and art. Metalheads are a tight international brotherhood and sisterhood of passionate, like-minded individuals. It is a lifestyle and a culture and the Fox Valley has a growing population of metalheads and rockers. I have heard them speak over the years about having their own venue. A venue that respects and nourishes their culture. I have been a metalhead since age thirteen and have my finger on the pulse of the current state of the scene. Older metalheads take their kids to shows and many generations enjoy the experience. Many of these older metalheads now have disposable income and are willing to pay for VIP reserved seats and treatment. Many metalheads are hard working, roll up your sleeves and get the job done blue collar types that are ready to live it up on the weekends watching live bands playing their favorite style of music. Metal spans all segments of the population. Another big segment of our target market is the kids, mainly ages thirteen and up . There are very few all ages venues in the Fox Valley. Many kids go to see dingy basement shows where they pay a small cover charge and crowd in like sardines to enjoy bands touring through the area. We want to give them somewhere to go on the weekends and keep them from roaming the streets bored. We will provide a safe haven for them to enjoy music. We also want to target various charities and host at least one benefit show per month. Metalheads tend to take care of their own. I'm a veteran with a service-connected disability. Back in 2009, I needed open heart surgery to replace a bad valve and repair an aortic aneurysm. The Veterans Administration took care of me. Now I am ready to give back. The metal scene is a caring and giving brotherhood. Just as the veterans who have served our country have given us the freedom to have the opportunity to give back. Our scene is always giving benefit shows for local charities and families in need. We will have benefit shows for charities such as the Wounded Warrior Project of Wisconsin and will develop a list of veterans that can attend concerts for free. Our building will be up to ADA standards with handicap accessible ramps, restrooms, VIP balcony areas, special general admission access booth, parking and more. We will take care of our vets, disabled or otherwise. A benefit show called Metalheads for Mammograms will be held annually to raise money for breast cancer for such charities as Susan G. Komen for the Cure and others. There will also be a benefit show for autism. We know many metalheads with autistic kids that could use our help. We will also donate to local food pantries and other charities such as Toys for Tots and host a benefit called Metalheads for Mutts for the local Humane Society. There are also plans to include a Metal, Hardcore, Punk, Hard Rock and Rock Museum and Hall of Fame. Although there is a Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, this will focus on the aforementioned genres and we will seek donations from bands, record labels and industry insiders that will give or loan instruments, clothing and other music related items with historical value. This will attract international attention and bring more people to the Fox Valley to help support the local economy. We also support local, national and international artists that create art based on these music genres. Deviant and Dark Art is a growing segment that needs to be seen and appreciated. These artists can display and sell their works in our art gallery.  Lastly, we would like to put together a green initiative by recycling our refuse and installing solar panels on the roof to help reduce our carbon footprint and reduce our utility bill, especially the heating bill during the cold Wisconsin winters.  There are many government grants available to us for taking these initiatives and we will utilize them.  Thank you in advance for supporting local music and contributing to our thriving scene.
