Crowdfunded Young Justice A Go, Green Lantern: TAS No

SMGO.tv is playing with our hearts; now announcing the attempt to bring back at least one of the two beloved shows.




So at first, there was a no, and now it's a YES. Okay even this reporter is confused, at the logic of this all but apparently SMGO.tv is now reversing what it said in a way. Here's the You Tube video they posted:

 

 

So no from the Warners Brothers executives, but SMGO.tv is still going to give at least one of these shows a try, that show being Young Justice. We'll keep you updated on this wacky  rollcoaster ride that is this news story.

so they don't have permission from Warner Bros, but they are gonna go ahead with it?? So they can get peoples hopes up and then nothing... There's rumors of a new Justice League Cartoon, there's no way WB will make both programs

its pretty much another kickstarter, but this one focuses just on bringing back cancelled tv shows... and doesn't have as much clout in anything...

yeah, it just seems like some scam artists who saw the popularity of kickstarter, made their own and now play on fanboys and girls emotions to nab themselves some cash.

The site just went online two months ago. This is their first "major" crowdfunded project since it's the one of the few things there that got voted into the next stage (Motor City is another one that got the votes for this).

it's one thing if its a producer of the show (like Rob Thomas and Veronica Mars) or a creator trying to get something published that may not otherwise get published since they are tied to the product or own it... but for some random person to start asking for money, AFTER the owner of the show in question said they wouldn't bring it back, it just reeks of scam

Pretty much all you need to know why Time-Warner put the kibbosh on this: It's not profitable enough for the undertaking.

Of course it's a scam, in my opinion. They're asking for money, as you say, to fund production of a show they don't own the rights to, and one the rights holders have already said "yeah, we're not doing that."

Thus, in a few months when this website can't produce YJ episodes, it won't be their fault; "Sorry fans, we tried our best, but WB won't let us."

And when people begin asking "Well, ok, that sucks, can we get our donations back?" The whole site might just quietly disappear, never to be seen or heard from again.

The only thing you'll crowdfund is their Caribbean getaway to lay low.

Guys, watch their vids before you decry this as a scam. They explain the process.
