THE IRON GIANT to air on Cartoon Network and TNT

In a move much like a parent buying their child a toy and then receiving

money from their kids allowance for it, Warner Bros. Features has sold

THE IRON GIANT to Cartoon Network and TNT. Cartoon Network couldn't

handle the license fee of US$3 million, so sister Turner channel, TNT,

came in to help out on a six-month pre-Cartoon Network window. TNT will

get six runs of the critically acclaimed box-office disappointment

within that six month time period. Both networks plan to promote the

film as a special picture that was overlooked (mis-marketed to some) at

the box office. Hopefully, everyone over at the Time Warner family of WB

Features, Cartoon Network and TNT will be pleased once THE IRON GIANT

makes it to the less-giant screen.
