Why not Netflix/Hulu for BMFM?

Okay, I gave this some thought.  Most of the time whenever someone uploads old season biker mice episodes on youtube they keep getting deleted due to copyright.  I can understand that to some degree (though it still irks me that for whatever reason the company refuses to put the original season on DVD.  Warner Bros. eventually caved in and put SWAT Kats on DVD, so why can't we get Biker Mice?).  So, why can't the studio who owns them stream the old series on websites like Hulu or Netflix?  That would solve it I think?  We can get our biker mice fix taken care of, and the studios won't have to worry about people putting them on youtube.  Everyone wins. :)

Because Disney owns the BMFM originals now as I understand as they also own marvel. How that works with the new bmfm I am unsure, but it could be the entire reason a lot of things won't do.

 

really the question is...... how come the originals that were released were edited to the point of taking the 'brother love' out of the eppisodes? when it was the whole point to show bros in arms. Not... bros in bed... well... save for the epps where the bros actually were in bed....(rambling)....  on and on... I forgot where I was going... (ambles off)

Criterion should be able to answer why. I think they have been involved in censoring episodes as well.

My personal thought is that times were different back in 1993 and more forgiving. You know, "a little shit won't kill". 2014 is the age of moralists and idiots. The view on children has changed too, so anything that is termed "not okay" by some professional opinionator is being implemented. So what we basically get is butched mainstream crap when we would love to have some proper old school "shit that won't kill" :)

Which really makes me wish they would release the unedited versious again... I miss the old episodes.

The hippies are in power now, just wait a few decades and the wild 80s folks will rock your world and release all that satanic evil, uncensored Biker Mice from Mars on your 3D 16K streaming media.

That... actually makes sense.  Can't happen soon enough.

...I totally forgot I put this post up here.  Since we already discussed the issues as to why it's not available to fans now, maybe I should just delete this post?

then why not make a pottion for it to be put on hulu/netflix - i would think the end result would be alot eaiser then putting the show on dvd as they dont lose out and this sort of stuff has worked out in the past who konws if it did work they might change there stance
