Special Report - Mummies Alive! Campaign Unwrapped - This article, written in June 1997 by Virginia Robertson, goes right to the details about the licencing of a show, using Mummies Alive as its example. A real eye-opener!
DIC Entertainment was taken over by Cookie Jar in July 2008 who was taken over by DHX Media in October 2012.
Betcha Didn't Know This!
Have you ever wondered about a possible connection between our Presley Carnovan and the King, Elvis Presley? Well Kathy and Mark of Pasadena, Texas thought there might be a connection, and asked us about it.
We inquired and to our surprise, this was the response from Seth Kearsley:
wow someone was on the ball :-)We also remember in Dog Bites Mummy when the bully Tiny Turner asks Presley: "What's in the bag, Elvis?"
I didn't think that anyone would catch that. It was really vague but yes. That's why Presley was named Presley. In 101, Rath says something like "Your father's house in Memphis was much larger" and then Presley replies "how'd you know my dad was from Memphis." I think there's another reference to Memphis and Elvis in 112 too when Presley and Ja-Kal are fishing.
Someone has a good eye. I thought for sure that was going to slip by everyone and just be sort of an inside joke for the people that worked on the show. In the episode that I wrote, Presley's dad was supposed to be named Aaron to get a little more Elvis in there.

Amid Amidi did a rather uncomplementary review for the Animation and Cartoon Heaven in his article: "The Latest DiC Disasters" (no longer on the web).
By comparison, here is the review done by Gerard Raiti for Mania Magazine:
This is by far the best new cartoon this fall! The stories are creative, action-packed, mysterious, and all-around exciting! It has generally been winning its time slot against shows such as X-Men (syndicated repeats), Bohot Kids Network - Extreme Block, Ducktales, Marvel Superheroes, Mighty Ducks, and Mr. Men. It is getting average ratings of 1.3/5, which is good considering its syndicated. Again, this is the best cartoon on TV! If you are a He-Man, Thundercats, Silver Hawks, or Gargoyles fan, this is the show for you!
