What do you wish to see in animation for the new decade?

For one thing, we could see all the Bosko MGM cartoons beautifully restored, or Totally Tooned In The Complete Series!

What are your ideas?

Seconded most of everyone else's wishes, plus:
- A broader range of Disney shorts merchandise (akin to what Nickelodeon and Disney themselves are doing with their Nicktoons and Disney Afternoon shows, respectively)
- (More) Blu-ray releases of the classic Disney, (classic and new) "Looney Tunes"/"Merrie Melodies", "Tom and Jerry", Tex Avery, and miscellaneous MGM shorts, Make Mine Music and Melody Time, The Flintstones (from Warner Archive, not Warner Home Video), The Sword in the Stone (with the new 4K restoration currently available on Disney+), lesser known Peanuts and Rankin/Bass specials, The Black Cauldron, The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, The Simpsons (seasons 1-12 and season 21 onward), most of the retro '90s Nicktoons and some of those shows' corresponding movies, SpongeBob SquarePants (the earlier seasons would use the HD masters currently available on Amazon Instant Video), The Loud House, The Casagrandes, Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling, Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus, etc.
- Mainstream DVD releases of Rugrats seasons 5-9, As Told by Ginger, The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, All Grown Up!, My Life as a Teenage Robot, and continuations of the currently incomplete Cartoon Network and Disney television shows
- New "Art of" books for the classic Disney and Warner Bros. shorts, "Looney Tunes Cartoons", Klasky-Csupo's Nicktoons, The Ren & Stimpy Show, Rocko's Modern Life, Hey Arnold!, The Angry Beavers, and CatDog, an "Ultimate History" book on Donald Duck, a '90s/'00s They Drew As They Pleased book, a collection of Floyd Gottfredson's post-1955 to 1975 Mickey Mouse comics, etc.
- An expanded version of the A Charlie Brown Christmas album (with all 11-12 tracks from the original album, every alternate take from the 2006 CD version, and full stereo versions of every unreleased cue/take used in the actual special), a soundtrack album for A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, a collection of Milt Franklyn scores similar to - and another volume of - the Carl Stalling Project CDs, the 2015 "Silly Symphonies" vinyl set on CD, more volumes of Walt Disney Records' The Legacy Collection, the full music scores to both of Rankin/Bass' Rudolph and Frosty specials and their other seasonal specials, etc.

Seconded!

Also...

-A fully restored home video release of the 1960s King Features Beatles cartoons. Yes, I know the Fab Four themselves didn't supply the voices for their animated counterparts (aside from the songs, of course), but the cartoons are charming and Paul Frees supplies many incidental voices.

-Complete (or at least mostly complete) CD or digital releases of the great incidental background music from the following shows:
-Inspector Gadget (Shuki Levy and Haim Saban) (Some of these have been released, but not all of them.)
-Rocko's Modern Life (Pat Irwin)
-The Simpsons (Alf Clausen)
-SpongeBob SquarePants (Nick Carr, Sage Guyton, Jeremy Wakefield, Michael Bolger, the late Barry Anthony, and others) (Not the well-known cues from the Associated Production Music library, but the original compositions written by a very talented in-house music team. Some of these have been made available "in the clear" in various ways, but not all of them.)

-A CD release of the isolated scores Gene Poddany, Carl Brandt and Dean Elliott wrote for Chuck Jones' Tom and Jerry shorts.

-Releases of the incidental music Hoyt Curtin and Ted Nichols wrote for Hanna-Barbera which haven't been released yet. I'm sure, although some of the Scooby music is available isolated, an official release from preferably La-La-Land Records would make fans squeal with cheer.

-I'm probably the only one here who'd like this, but more releases of the Filmation incidental music. I'm probably the only one who finds the backing music for "The Tom and Jerry Comedy Show" catchy, even if they're used ad nauseum!

-A royalty-free collection of vintage cartoon SFX that aren't available anywhere else, including WB and H-B sounds not on their respective libraries. (I actually have plans of making such a compilation. PM me for further info.)

Well, this is isn't home media related, but I'd personally like to see more than 5 screenshots posted Monday through Friday!
