Article about Fox executive admitting they're just trying to make more money with the Weasel.

Where's that throw-up emoticon when you need it?   Huh?

I wrote something like this last year, but it bears repeating: Not only will I not pay $9 to see a "Digger movie," I will not even see it if I was paid a couple of million dollars!

Too bad Fox isn't offering to let the real race fans pay to NOT see him superimposed on the race broadcasts...I'd sign up for that option right away.   Wink

I watched the debut of the Digger cartoon yesterday.  It looks OK as far as production values, and maybe some kids will get into it, but this is still crass and embarassing. Embarrassed

By the way, Keith Urban performs the theme song.  Do I then get the feeling that wife Nicole Kidman will be a guest voice this season? Huh?
