Amen. STORY STORY STORY, CHARACTER CHARACTER CHARACTER! Shows like "The Critic," which was miserable it's first year, but started to find it's center it's second season--only to have the plug pulled--are rare. Execs exploiting shows that even the creator thought couldn't be done on a TV schedule (Family Dog) only to meet humiliating and expensive failure. Every TV show takes a while to make, but animation takes longer--and most execs are too short sighted to have the patience to deal with the process. "Just draw the pictures..." Same with feature animation (ala Quest for Camelot...). BTW---"Spirit" won't be "photo-realistic." It'll just be bad design run through the executive mill.
