I have to agree with you there. One of the decisions LFL made that got the excitement to a fever pitch for the PT was the release of the special editions of the original films. All it really was was the same films we've seen a million times. What made it special beyond the few edits was the fact an entire new generation could grow up with the films and actually see them on the big screen. I think a little merchandising effort on the part of these old shows and series would have the same effect for the animated film and subsequent animated/live action series.
