Save the Samurai Pizza Cats!

SPC has played an important role in my life since I discovered it. At the time, I was in the hospital feeling sick and very miserable, as one typically feels when one stays at a hosptial. I was also going insane with boredom. One day, while flicking through the skimpy assortment of channels available on the TV in my room, I was lucky enough to come across the Samurai Pizza Cats. The episode was Distructo Robots at Popular Prices. Up until that point I had only seen ads for the show on various channels, and had thus dismissed the show as one for little kids. When I saw it for the first time, however, the over the top humor instantly lifted my spirits. Suddenly I was no longer bored and significantly less miserable. Less than a week later I was released from the hospital, and I have been a die hard fan ever since.
(It was later suggested to me by SPC Polly that Samurai Pizza Cats should be shown at hospitals everywhere as part of a new therapy program.)
When it was taken off the air, many people felt they had lost a favorite show. I felt I had lost an arm or a loved one. Perhaps I am too obsessed with SPC, but that only means I am willing to fight like hell to get it back. I'm not alone, there are others who feel as I do. Our progress is slow but steady, and in the end we will triumph. But we need all the help we can get.
Below are links to some websites where you can learn what to do and who to write in order to restore Samurai Pizza Cats to their rightful place on TV.
Saban is currently working out a deal to sell its shares of Fox Family, a deal which includes its video library. While this deal is still in the works, it seems that eventually SPC will have a new home. Which means that at this point, letter writing is out and petitions are in. Below are the two most prominant.
