I signed it. I have a question though. Has any online petition changed something ever?

Nope...pretty pointless if you ask me.

won't help. YJ didn't get canned because of low ratings. It, like GL had high ratings. They got canned because there were no toys. Same thing happened to symboionic titan. CN isn't interested in actual good shows, they only want merch rights. The solution is to simply boycott the network. Stop turning to a station that calls itself "cartoon network" because they couldn't care less about "cartoons". Look at that "world of gumball" garbage. Look at MAD. Look at the droves of awful shows that continue to air. The only way a show won't get cancelled on CN is if there are merch and/or if CN owns the show directly. Thats why adult swim suddenly stopped playing anime and started running live action shows that are random as hell (for the people who smoke out). Tom and eric go see the mayor? wtf?! I suggest the Hub or some other network if you want quality animation. I'm done with CN though. Thank God Avatar is only on nickelodeon.

It's not going to happen.

Cartoons are short because they're used to drive the toy market. Paul Dini talked about this recently with Kevin Smith on an episode of "Fat Man on Batman" http://smodcast.com/channels/fatman-on-batman/

This is why the 90s Batman Animated series got a major "retune" after about 3 seasons and why Marvel has a brand new Spider-Man cartoon every 2 years now.

YJ in particular was a great show, but you're not going to get it back, I'm sorry.

Didn't really watch either of these shows, but Beware the Batman looks god-awful. Really wish DC Nation would explore a different hero in the DC Universe (Shazam, Flash, Jonah Hex, etc.) instead of giving us another Batman.

@Crash_Recovery: You are well stated sir. Most if not all cartoons on TV are marketing points for goods and services. Its been that way since the 50's. It was a good show though...

Great show, man. They took chances and actually moved characters forward. A rarity in cartoons, much less comics.

You know what I think will work better than a petition? Everyone who likes the show should go out and buy the DVDs. Not the stupid ones with only 4 episodes, but the half seasons. That might bring it back, it worked for Family Guy and Futurama.

@Reignmaker:

I agree. DC needs to refresh their shows. They just need to get away from Batman, Superman and the Justice League for a while. Other less known DC characters are very interesting: Dr. Fate, Shazam, Blue Beetle, etc.

Bummed that they are canceling the show and hope that the petition can at least convince DC that a direct to video of young justice could be worth it after this season.

I agree with this.

These but I admire you guys determination. I only seen one episode of that Green Lantern show but Young Justice is pretty tight.

@Kreature: We should petition to put DC Nation on a different channel.

hope it helps

I signed it, and I don't want to sound negative, but I don't think online petitions really help. Honestly, at the end of the day, profit is a corporation's only concern, and if Young Justice/Green Lantern isn't turning over merchandise, I don't think there's hope from a business standpoint. I love both shows to death, but such is a bureaucracy...

That being said, I remain hopeful. Who knows, right?

BUY EPISODES OFF ITUNES.

Srsly, if you owned YJ and it was probably making very little money would you keep it up? NO.

Actually yes, a little girl petitioned for Seventeen magazine to have at least one photo that wasn't photoshoped. However getting enough signatures probably only give us an animated movie.
