Ben Prime Wasn't In The Reboot By The Ink Tank

    I can confirm we reached out to them.



  • Crazy theory, but what if Cartoon Network starts listening to us fans if their are enough of us? It would have been wicked cool if the fans got to decide what happens in the future of the franchise!



  • @Mortie-10 I think it's possible they do if there is enough fan involvement. If it happened with Star Wars The Clone Wars, why can't it happen with Ben 10.


  • Ben 10 Fans

    What would be the best way to do it without pushing creators away from the Ben 10 fandom. They are getting annoyed with the #restoretheomniverse hashtag.



  • @npzman I've seen people say that they are getting annoyed but haven't seen anyone involved with Ben 10 say that. I think it's fine to tweet out #RestoreTheOmniverse as long as it's being done in a respectful manner.



  • @cooljay7 Granted, Cartoon Network isn't Disney and, as far as I can tell, Cartoon Network seems to have quite an issue with listening to their audience and making all sorts of bad decisions. I mean, christ, they're bringing back a pre-school and live-action block. Mind you, the last time Cartoon Network did a live-action block, it nearly killed the network. Hopefully things are changing for the better though.



  • @Tactical-Ochoa The thing is that we aren't Cartoon Network's audience. They target a much younger demographic and I know that back in the day when live action was on the network, the target demographic enjoyed it. As much as I'm not a fan of live action returning, it might be something that the current generation of kids enjoy.



  • @cooljay7 Are you sure about that? Again, the live-action block that Cartoon Network did before nearly killed the network. It performed that badly. It failed miserably. No one wants for live-action to return to Cartoon Network. Therefore, I highly doubt that the younger demographic enjoyed it.

    Speaking of said younger demographic, they say that the shows are "made for kids," but I don't think that's actually the case here. One of the major complaints towards Cartoon Network that I noticed was how even though it's said that many of their current line of shows were made for kids, they don't feel like they're actually made for kids. One person that I follow on Twitter sums those cartoons up as "coffee shop cartoons," as in they're made specifically for young adults. College students trying to be hip and progressive or something of the likes.

    Cartoon Network's ratings have been dropping in recent years. And no, I don't mean just TV-wise. Streaming-wise, they're losing viewers as well, including kids (link below). The very demographic that Cartoon Network says they're catering towards are not watching their shows. Kids have been looking at Cartoon Network's current line of shows, don't like what they're seeing, and instead gravitated towards Netflix and YouTube. If you're a young adult (more specifically a young college student trying to be hip and progressive), you actually are Cartoon Network's currently targeted demographic, even though they're saying otherwise, and that's proving to be a problem for Cartoon Network because, again, their ratings have been dropping and are continuing to drop. More and more kids have stopped watching Cartoon Network. I have a feeling that Cartoon Network don't even realize why given the current decisions that they're making.
