Yes, more dedication, more budget. Those were made for *adults* and
were not seen as a separate money-making product until much later so
they didn't care that they were spending so much on them. That's
what all the studios did, you know?

Made for adults. Also war era stuff was a little more violent. But
it was a cartoon. Those guys never die no matter how much TNT you
blast them with.

Ha hahaahahaa, where would you look? All the studios making TV
animation suck at it. You either live with it or try to make it
on your own which is a huge risk.

Not sure. Could be toy company, could be producer, could be
studio, depends on who "owns" it.
