I really don't think thats the case at all DS. If you want to take the "optimist" view you can equate them to the serials that GL loves so much. Short little storys with clifhangers. I think the real reason is that they are basicaly just comercals. Some thing that LFL said lets give Cartoon Network X amount of money and have them build some hype for us. 30 min cartoons would A) take more money to finace and 2) take longer to produce. This way Gendy and friends can keep doing their current jobs and take a few months off here or there to do the CW cartoon. Instead of working years in advance.
