Hi. I am just a little curious about this. Warner Bros. and Disney are animation rivals and I assume most people know this.
Disney's been producing animated TV specials since the '80s, and as far as I know they've only produced one during the '70s:
I don't think either Disney or Warner Brothers dominate the TV toon market, that would be Hanna Barbera. They've been producing TV shows since 1957.
Warner Bros. was showcasing their classic Looney Tunes shorts on TV beginning in 1960:
I am wondering why Disney doesn't show any adult TV cartoon shows or have an adult animation block on their cable/satellite TV channels. Are they concerned that would hurt their family-friendly image?
Are they concerned that would hurt their family-friendly image?
It is very clear over the years that Disney is very protective of its image.
They recently announced that no R rated films and mature rated shows will not be shown on Disney Plus. They plan to have that content on Hulu, which they partly own.
With that in mind, Disney has no plans to produce any adult animation.
Clone High was produced years ago for MTV and canceled after one season.
And before you mention it, I am aware Disney produced Clerks: The Animated Series and The PJs, but both of those were canceled years ago as well.
I said Disney has no plans to produce mature content for the foreseeable future, and they announced their future plans back in August. Disney also retired the Touchstone Pictures brand in 2016.
