Duckburg was not picked-up, he was Transformers (a VILLAGER). He was a huge loss for the exec's, with the movie tie-in and new line of toys coming out everyone was looking to advertise. Standing by with millions in hand to place their commercials was a revival of the retro Colgate Pump commercial. Colgate walked out the door and headed over to Nickelodeon execs.
YouKnowWho was Alvin & The Chipmunks, a VILLAGER. On NBC in the earliest time slot in the Fall of 1979, they didn't do so well and were pulled from the lineup. They did manage to return to the lineup in fall of 1983 and stick around this time in a slightly later time slot. Alvin, Simon and Theodore have won the heart's of many and have had several full length animated features and a recently released major motion picture has brought them across the paths of NBC execs once again. Some sneaky manipulation of the contract had the execs thinking they were absolutely greedy with their success, when all they really wanted to do was sing "Witch Doctor" on Saturday morning. The exec's turned them down and Hi-C took their advertising dollars to the Cartoon Network. (Look, look, Alyssa Milano in the Hi-C commercial!)
I forgot that you were nightkilled and came up village
Oh wait, that didn't happen
No, it must be that the guy you pushed to lynch yesterday came up wolf
No, I guess that didn't happen either
Oh right, it was your passionate inspired belief that you were leading the village to a wolf lynch
Wait, you didn't do that either?
Fine I'll admit it, I have no idea why you think me thinking you're a wolf here is silly, or wrong, or whatever. What I do know is that now that Duck is dead and revealed village I know that both people you wanted to lynch yesterday are villagers (not counting perdi I suppose, but you didn't really seem to want to lynch him other than for meta reasons) and I know that at no point did you show any conviction whatsoever about any of your reads. Both of those things are wolfy for you, and you know this, because I've told you this before.
So tell me why I'm supposed to clear you. Point to it ITT. Then I'll do my 'splainin
