no, they knew the show was shit, and that it'll go down as being shit. They won't get any more good budget shows.
they wanted to get more work in the future, leave a legacy and win awards like annies and other awards and stuff.
so they went with the "human rights" victory at the end.
and went full bisexual for the ending of a kids show and the subsequent comics.
mark my words, if i ever get my hands on this IP, i'll burn everything after the ending of season 1.
