At least it's not Sony. If they owned our souls, we wouldn't be able to use them. I dunno about how Hit was treating Barney. I've heard terrible things about how they treat a lot of things. I'm glad they don't have that partnership with Henson, though. I think the damage is done with Thomas the Tank Engine. CGI models, crappy voice acting. Though there was that funny bit where the Fat Controller lost his hat. And we are getting more accessible merchandise. The Shining Time Station days only had expensive wooden trains. Above all, I'm kinda more worried about Dreamworks's ownership of Classic Media. I'm afraid they'll only bother with the big ticket stuff, and if Peabody and Sherman bombs, it'll be a repeat of Universal and Rocky and Bullwinkle.
