Current seasons are usually not available for most shows because they are airing on a TV network instead so it's likely for similar reasons.
My first thought is The Wall, though they don't sneak over the wall to get to someone famous but instead to reunite siblings separated by the wall.
Personally I'm not a big fan of sections like this, especially given the difficulty to keep them accurate. Most of the time an illustration image on an episode or film page is good enough.
No idea. Season four is yet to wrap up and season five should go well into next year and likely into the first part of 2021. Seasons six and seven have been confirmed by the distributor though haven't yet been picked up by a network. This could take the series into 2025.
They stopped making them because the company was secretly planning to dismantle its family entertainment and animation arms. This is also why they were sued by Bagdassarian Productions and lost all rights to the characters (with exception of the two films).
I would have loved to have seen Universal do more with the characters as was in their contract. Meet the Wolfman is my favorite and these were quality films.
I think the series is quite good. There's a clear difference from the start of the series to where it is now, with the character designs honed in and the animation smoother. I think the plots have also improved and the original songs are pleasant to listen to.
Having Ross and Janice on the the new series helped ensure the character quality. They are very protective of the characters and want the best of them, though sometimes that can mean less people are involved. A big plus with this particular series is the fact their children, Michael and Vanessa, are involved and learning to keep the franchise going.
The newer ratings (from the most recent episodes) are a good contradiction to the older ratings.
Nah, this franchise is strange in that it has a tendency to dislike other generations of characters and like primarily the one in which they grew up with (let's not forget that everything after the 60s is a reboot). CGI films fans dislike the TV series given they aren't as realistic as the films and 80s fans dislike the films because they don't like the characters/content or that Alvinnn isn't as good as the 80s. The 60s is an older series and a number haven't actually seen the episodes, just rating on its looks or what they believe is a lack of personality. Primarily looks.
On top of everything, there are people outside the franchise that just dislike the characters altogether and downvote everything. Some believe the characters shouldn't be around anymore or everything sucks because they can't stand the voices.
None of these views are particularly fair to any of the generations and it's sad when good episodes from any of the series are given such poor reviews, These reviews ideally should only be from people that have actually watched the episodes.
Highly unlikely as Disney owns nothing about that series.
It's my opinion that his reviews aren't actually reviews, but dramatic episodes for show. I wouldn't be surprised if he just jumped on the bandwagon of dislike for the franchise, regardless of its positive traits. Yes there are lows in each of the films, though it's wrong to trash it just to do so. An honest review covers the good and bad.
Not here sadly. The wiki is now taking the stance of not posting songs unless they are released by an official account, for copyright reasons. Jack may re-release the songs sometime in the future, but the whole Chipmunk Hub situation has yet to be played out and it's unknown what may be included there (if it's ever built).
Actually, this wasn't just limited to Eleanor in The Chipmunk Adventure.
Perhaps not. In the latest interview with Ross and Janice, it was indicated that broadcasters have a desire for production of a sixth and seventh season; there just hasn't been an official order for them (pushes production out to 2025). Season five won't be finished in production for a while still (around 2021), with each episode taking about nine months to create.
Not quite sure as everyone appears to be contradicting each other: 1993, 1994, or 1996. The article on the wiki was created a good six years ago using existing information so I'm not sure what source was used.
Nick decided to remove them from their schedule at the last moment (something they've been guilt of doing in the past). They are erratic in that regard. Why they removed them? Spongebob probably, but who knows for certain. Other countries run on their own schedule though for many times throughout the series they've aired episodes first. Perhaps this just lines up with the fact that some countries premiered the series before the US as well.
Bagdasarian Productions has a record of taking down many channels in little waves, like roughly once every year and a half. Jack has gone through this many times and I have three times now (with Alvinnn Originals). The owners, which includes Ross Jr. with a legal background, are very protective of their work and exercise their rights frequently (with court cases and takedown requests) which explains why fan uploads/accounts get nuked. They are doing what they are allowed to do, even if it sucks for us fans.
As for their official channel, I don't think they have a clear direction on Youtube. They frequently create a channel, add content, and then abandon/delete it before later creating a new one down the road. Removing the episode could be a rights issue with those companies with distribution rights to the DVDs that the episodes were from (all episodes they posted were from the DVDs) or perhaps they just didn't want them up any more, or perhaps they were harming profits in some way. Who knows for sure.
The wiki has used content primarily from two channels for years: Jack's and the channel I created for Alvinnn specifically for the wiki. Some fans believe that, through Vanessa, Ross and Janice will change their stance on fan content or that BP will begin releasing content themselves and they needed to remove fan contributed uploads to do so. Either way, there is uncertainty about what will become of songs in the future (currently me and Jack do not have plans to re-upload songs and there's the possibility that song videos may simply be removed from the wiki altogether).
It's actually happened a few times for him and before for me and the Alvinnn songs. It's unfortunate but reasonable from a copyright standpoint. He'll come up with something to replace it though I'm not sure what yet.
Never heard of it though I've always steered clear of people selling the episodes. Not only is it more illegal to be making a profit off the episodes, you don't know what you're gonna get content or quality wise.
I wouldn't object to Disney coming up with a new film if they are serious and wanna make something that's of high quality. Now, the question here is how accurate is this claim the film series will return?
Possible, though I don't see how likely.
