Question[edit]

Was the following removed or otherwise reverted because Nate Spidgewood, through what I presume to be yet another myriad of IP addresses, added them?

On July 23, 2012, [[DreamWorks Animation]] acquired Classic Media from Boomerang Media for $155 million; the company became a unit of DreamWorks Animation and was renamed DreamWorks Classics.<ref name="latimes"/><ref name="businessinsider"/> On June 18, 2014, DreamWorks Animation bought the "[[Felix the Cat]]" brand and added it to the DreamWorks Classics portfolio.<ref name="licensemag1">{{cite web|url=http://www.licensemag.com/license-global/dreamworks-picks-felix-cat |title=DreamWorks Picks Up Felix the Cat|publisher=License!

It kind of bothers me that the status of a single person (in this and apparently plenty of other cases, a banned user) can influence the correctness of any information regardless of all other factors. I just need to know if Nate was the sole cause of all of the above's removal and/or reversion, so that I can know if they can be safely restored by someone else. --Ryanasaurus0077 (talk) 02:22, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

Gumby?[edit]

It said in this page: http://www.ew.com/article/2012/07/23/dreamworks-classic-he-man-gumby-casper that Gumby is one of the characters that DreamWorks Animation bought from Classic Media. Is this true? --2601:2C0:C280:21A0:8C84:59D1:E805:D53F (talk) 21:47, 31 October 2017 (UTC)

Maybe Classic Media had some distribution rights at the time of the article? The copyright on gumby.com is "Copyright © 2017 Prema Toy Inc. and Premavision Inc." and has no mentions of or links to DreamWorks Animation or DreamWorks Classics. Trivialist (talk) 00:59, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

New page[edit]

i wonder if any one will help in creating a List of characters in Dreamworks Classic Libraries page when we can list everything that in the Dreamworks Classic Catalogs. Fanoflionking 11:11, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
