I mean...what else are they supposed to do? They had gotten the message with the second request. They agreed to pass it on. It is evident to me that prior to the chat they had very little concept of the interest in this (they may even have heard of interest but didn't take it seriously, not realizing how deep it was).David, the problem with this is that the subject of Batman boxed sets has been brought up in chats before, and sites such as ToonZone have in the past actively campaigned for them too.
Add to this, the fact that internet forums from here to DVDToons constantly have the boxed set issue coming up every month or so and you would think Warners would realise how deep the interest was already.
(I know that nothing forces Warners to read petitions or forums, let alone take any notice of them, but if my business was to sell cartoon DVDS, I'd at least scout around some of the likely websites for 'research')
Warners have shown nothing but carlessness for all their "family entertainment" titles (although the last couple of Powerpuff DVDs were good - shame the episode count dropped from their previous releases and they blew any goodwill with their P&S release of the PPG Movie).
I wish if Warners don't really want to release their "superhero" cartoons, they would let Rhino release them in the same format as their Transformers releases. After all Rhino are part of the massive AOL-Time Warner conglomerate.

I can see BBS, New Line, HBO, etc. But not Rhino. Probably because the attachment is via Warner Music, rather than through the standard home video department.
As a result, it's doubtful that Rhino would be allowed to handle anything like Batman or the other DC Comics properties in the near future. Perhaps after the next reorganization!
