Hey skylanders fans! With the outcome of Skylanders Giants, do you think there should be a cartoon? Why or Why not? What station should it be on [Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, Disney, etc.] I look forward to your responses!

Griffon Well, they did try to create a Legend of Spyro movie, but it was cancelled. But yes, with Skylanders, they may not stop in their tracks this time.
I'm not really too sure, I like the idea of leaving Skylander-based stories to fanfiction better myself. Back in the days when I used to watch TV, cartoons were usually broken into 30 minute blocks, and depending on the show, these 30 minute blocks could be saturated with commercials, some more than others. This means that you would(likely) have less than 30 minutes to tell a story about the Skylanders(probably 22), and I don't think that 22 minutes or so is enough time to tell a meaningful story. In fanfiction, you can write as much as you want, and as long as it's published, the readers can come back to it anytime, so even if it's a story that could take many hours to read, because you could take breaks, it could all still get done, and I think the possibilities behind fanfiction are more dramatic that way. Stories that are quick, not very meaningful, and that have commercials creating distractions aren't effective stories in my opinion.
Anyway, sorry that was a bit too long, but that's what I think. Activision may not agree with me though; if there's a possibility they could make money by doing so(and that possibility seems very real to me), then they might even be considering this already.

Cartoon Network needs a show that makes since and actually has a storyline to go with it, not another idiotic, random show like MAD or Amazing World of Gumball (seriously... who wants to watch a talking, walking gumball?). I agree some of these shows are funny and entertaining, but I like storylines. I digress.
Skylanders would make a great cartoon. If you think about it, the commercial "Tall Tales" could have easily been a cartoon episode. Jet-Vac could have stormed off in search of the giants to try and make the others believe his tales. Spyro and the others could have gotten worried about him and gone after him, and in the end they find all the giants.
Others too. Easter Surprise could have been one. Stealth Elf was left in the garden, so the Skylanders go out to find her. When they reach the waterhose, she's gone. They end up finding her... (you fill it in).
"Still Friends", "Obey", "Boom", and many others could have been cartoons. It'd be a very funny series to watch, especially with Eruptor: "I don't blend in with anything!" xD
I think Skylanders cartoon will probably air, but probably not because if it airs on Cartoon Network, it will take the spot of the most popular shows like Adventure Time, Regular Show, Looney Tunes, and Annoying Orange. It should air on Nickelodeon or Disney Channel.
YEAH, THAT'S TRUE, BUT I STILL WOULD LOVE TO SEE IT ON CARTOON NETWORK...
