Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) is an American multinational mass media and entertainment conglomerate. It formed after the spin-off of WarnerMedia by AT&T and its merger with Discovery, Inc. on April 8, 2022.

Why This Is A Warning Of A TERRIBLE Discovery

  1. The new company has a horrible start. In four months, the Discovery, Inc. side has currently destroyed the WarnerMedia side of the company, the reasons are below.
  2. They have canceled most Warner Bros. projects and ended several shows, including their films. such as Batgirl, which almost finished, and Scoob! Holiday Hunt, even though Scoob! isn't a very good film to begin with, it’s still disappointing.
  3. They have been removing shows from HBO Max in international countries and official YouTube channels, then this practice has moved on to the United States too.
  4. HBO Max collapsing thanks to this company, still a long list of shows will be removed from the service and shut down. (To be fair, the response is that HBO Max and Discovery+ will be merged into one platform, but still.)
    • Recently, just like Netflix, they plan to cut costs on the children's content from HBO Max, including their animated shows that were still in development, providing that they’re now treating animation.
      • To make matters worse, the company has recently removed 30 animation titles from HBO Max in the US, content from Cartoon Network, Sesame Workshop, and Cartoonito. Even the series still in production also removed, which could be a sign that the shows canceled.
        • Shows like Infinity Train, Final Space, Mao Mao: Heroes of Pure Heart, Uncle Grandpa, OK K.O: Let's Be Heroes!, Little Ellen, etc. had been removed from HBO Max, writing off the shows. Insane, right?
          • To make it even worse, these shows had also been removed from official YouTube channels, even Cartoon Network's website, before WTIAWOATD#3, even Infinity Train's soundtrack removed from Apple Music!. All of this indicates that the executives in charge of Warner Bros Discovery are canceling shows like Infinity Train and removing all mention of them from videos and social media just because THEY hate these shows.
      • Other animation projects had moved from HBO Max in favor of other streaming services and networks. But thankfully, they have at least saved from cancellation.
  5. The merger has resulted in the biased cancellation of shows that follow serialization and incorporate drama, including Final Space and Infinity Train's executives even insulted the fans who were infuriated by the cancellation of Final Space by making an unfunny joke about it on adult swim while it was running, showing that they do not care about the fans of the show.
    • David Zaslav, the person behind the Warner Bros and Discovery merger, indicated that he canceled shows like Final Space and Infinity Train because they are scripted drama shows, as he admitted in a 2015 interview with Time Magazine that he hates scripted drama because they are like watching a children’s soccer game due to everyone wanting to be a part of it to point where it goes too expensive. His logic is confusing as he dared to compare Final Space to a children’s soccer game. How are those two things related?
      • It's also rumored that he cancelled those shows because of having "LGBT propaganda", implying that he's a homophobe.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Cartoon Network had stood up to the merger and warned them not to remove their shows from HBO Max.
  2. Several creators of animated shows have shown to be very unhappy about the merger, including its consequences, example, Owen Dennis, the creator of Infinity Train, criticized the executives for their decision to pull multiple shows from HBO Max. Meanwhile, Final Space creator Olan Rogers has stated that he refuses to give up on the show and revealed that he is making an animated short called Godspeed, which is heavily influenced by Final Space to try to convince the executives to bring the show back on the air. Godspeed successfully funded Kickstarter with over 460,000 dollars raised.
  3. Warner Bros. Discovery once stated that if they had to cancel one show between Titans (2018) and Doom Patrol (2019), they would have cancelled the former due to their "writing quality" and "trying to be like Riverdale". [1][2]
