Hi! This is the Petitions blog and for those of you who think that Rabbit Ears should make changes can have discussions on this page.

 

For one thing, I think that Rabbit Ears should have a fully animated TV series of all the stories they made (especially one for "The Fool and the Flying Ship).  What do you all think about what Rabbit Ears should change?
