Nothing is impossible for Kim Possible fans
Nothing is impossible for Kim Possible fans, as they set forth once again to resurrect their favorite prime-time show on the Disney Channel.
Kim Possible is an Emmy Award-winning Walt Disney animated television series that premiered on the Disney Channel in June 2002. The show’s creators, Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley, created a Disney animated cult classic with millions of diehard fans spanning across the world. The show revolves around Kim Possible, her sidekick and best friend Ron Stoppable, and his naked mole rat Rufus. Kim Possible is your average girl: she’s a high school cheerleader, and she goes around the world along with Ron and Rufus thwarting the plans of hilarious villains, which include the likes of Doctor Drakken, Shego, Monkey Fist and Professor Dementor.
Kim Possible is the girl that can do anything; Ron Stoppable is the boy that can’t do anything. In season four, Ron has become Kim’s new steady boyfriend and that has just added more fun and drama to the hit Disney series. Ron Stoppable is usually the scene stealer in each episode with his childlike wonder and his outrageous antics, not to mention his whining out loud, but when push comes to shove Ron’s always there for Kim and he has Kim’s back along with Rufus. Kim and Ron are backed up by Wade, who's a twelve-year old boy genius and the makers of all of Kim's high tech and unique gadgets including her kimmunicator.
The fourth season ended on September 7, 2007, with the one hour series finale episode, "Graduation." Much to the dismay and out cries by Kim Possible fans world wide who've been campaigning Disney all along to renew the series for another season. Those cries by Kim Possible fans everywhere fell on deaf ears, as Disney went ahead and cancelled the show after four seasons, just like it had done once before on February 22, 2005, after 3 seasons and 65 episodes later.
However due to a dedicated grassroots campaign launched by Kim Possible fans everywhere, "The Fight For Four for Kim Possible." Walt Disney reluctantly renewed the show for a fourth and final season. Though much of the credit for the renewal of the show went to diehard Kim Possible fans everywhere who had lobbied Disney on a constant basis, Disney had also struck a deal with German broadcaster Super RTL to bring back Kim Possible for a fourth season. On February 10, 2007, season four of Kim Possible debuted back on the Disney Channel in prime-time with the airing of the first episode of season four "Ill Suited."
In the opening episode of "Ill Suited", the school billboard sign reads, "Not the End!" Which was the exact opposite of the school billboard sign in the Disney Channel original movie, Kim Possible, "So the Drama." Where at the end, the school billboard sign read "The End."
The fans had won a reprieve for Kim Possible, allowing her and Ron to finish off their senior year in High School together and allowing the devoted fans to anxiously wait each week for a new Kim Possible episode to air. The buzz was all around the Kim Possible websites including Ron Stoppable Really Neat Page (http://ronstoppable.proboards89.com/index.cgi), as fans were overjoyed that the Walt Disney company seemed to put the fans first, though that didn't always seem the case, as Kim Possible was shifted around numerous times from her prime-time slot of 8:00 pm on the Disney Channel.
The fans everywhere knew Disney had no intention of going past the fourth season and Disney's famous 65 episode rule had already been broken by the Fight For Four, yet no matter the fact that the 65 episode rule had been broken, Disney was going to stay steadfast on not allowing the fans to have anymore new episodes of Kim Possible. Even though popular animated shows like "Family Guy", "King of the Hill," "South Park", and especially "Simpsons" had easily surpassed four seasons. Except for "Family Guy", all the other animated series didn't need their fans to fight to save it, cause it was simply renewed continuously by the network.
Which brings us back to the fans of Kim Possible and their dilemma. Obviously Disney has no intention of giving Kim Possible fans what they want and have been begging Disney for close to a year, a Season Five of Kim Possible. The Walt Disney Company is acting very much like a spoiled child, "that it's all about what the Walt Disney Company wants and not what the loyal Disney fans themselves have been asking for and down right pleading the company to give, a season five of Kim Possible." Why is it so difficult for the Walt Disney company to just owe up to what the fans want and give the fans a Season Five? Obviously Kim Possible is still a hot ticket, as she's extremely popular world wide and the ratings were good, and would be even better if Kim Possible got some major media exposure, like Disney did for Hanna Montana and is doing right now for Phineas and Ferb. And then I haven't even mentioned the merchandising alone, which Disney has obviously dropped the bomb on, Kim Possible fans are fighting tooth and nail to get quality Kim Possible merchandise made available for them to purchase at their local Wal-mart or here's an even more novel idea, how about making Kim Possible merchandise available at Disney stores across North America.
To the fans of Kim Possible, nothing is impossible. KP fans are as determined as ever to see Kim Possible make another triumphant return to Disney. These fans are in it for the long haul and there Fight for Five (http://markandbobsforum.proboards83.com/index.cgi at Animation Communication Central and at Ron Stoppable really neat page) is a David standing up to the might of Goliath. As the rock each Kim Possible fan holds, is the rock of truth and justice and the undying passion of love for a show that they feel is so worthing saving.
