This article is 98% original research and almost entirely an in universe narrative/essay. If all of the WP:OR was deleted, the result would be a couple sentences and an infobox. There isn't enough content here to warrant separate articles about every character from King of the Hill, and in fact, not only does the main TV show article contain bios about the characters, but there's also an article List of King of the Hill characters, which describes them in more detail. The separate articles are massive overkill and should be redirected to the List article, or to the main TV show article. The Master ---)Vote Saxon(--- 01:15, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

I am also group nominating the following related articles based on the same rationale. Not enough content for separate articles and the list of characters is sufficient. Any minor bits of info from the separate articles can be merged there:

  • Speedy close as nominator is not actually proposing deletion but rather merger. Just put a merger template on the top of each page you want to merge and discuss your proposal on the talk page. An AfD discussion is not required in this case. Keresaspa (talk) 02:57, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Merge as per nom. As a meta-argument, I don't think this should be speedy closed. The reason is that centralized discussion venues are superior to localized discussions, because experience has shown that any policy-grounded arguments can be vetoed by a small clique of enthusiasts. This is especially true of pop culture articles. Using AfD to obtain consensus for or against merging from neutral editors is to be preferred. Reyk YO! 03:22, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Keep all These topics are covered in numerous sources including:
  1. Television Cartoon Shows: an illustrated encyclopedia
  2. Cult TV: The Comedies
  3. The Complete Directory to Prime Time Network and Cable TV Shows
  4. The Magic Behind the Voices
  5. Drawn to Television: Prime-time Animation from the Flintstones to Family Guy
  6. America Toons In: A History of Television Animation
  7. Queers in American Popular Culture
  8. Encyclopedia of Television Shows, 1925 through 2010
  9. Animated 'Worlds'
  10. God, Man, and Hollywood: Politically Incorrect Cinema

The nomination's claims are not supported by any evidence and, as noted above, aren't actually proposing deletion but just some kind of merger/cleanup. But AFD is not cleanup. The discussion should be speedily closed per WP:SK "fails to advance an argument for deletion—perhaps only proposing a non-deletion action such as moving or merging".

  • Redirect the articles per nominator, they are overcoverage. And you can't build articles out of OR. Redirecting leaves article history intact and if someone wants to merge they can do so. Also, keep this discussion open because WP:NOTBURO and a proposed group redirect is not different from deletion. Arguing to forcibly close a discussion for technical reasons appears as through there's no objective argument to keep the articles and so other methods to keep them from being deleted or redirected need be employed. And Reyk's argument is pertinent as well, RE: a centralized location where a broader consensus can be obtained. Kindzmarauli (talk) 13:27, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Keep Hank Hill, who is a notable character in his own right. The rest may be legitimate candidates for merger to List of King of the Hill characters, but I do agree with Andrew that AfD is not intended to be a place for extensive merger discussions. This page is crowded enough without them. --Arxiloxos (talk) 15:58, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Comment - Folks, this isn't a merger discussion. I clearly stated that the articles should be redirected, which is the same as deletion but saves the article history. I figured I was being kind by suggesting this as opposed to outright deletion and that anything useful could be merged afterwards. In any case, I'm not seeing much that disputes my rationale for redirecting these articles, except for maybe Hank Hill. The Master ---)Vote Saxon(--- 00:08, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Deletion is a specific function which makes the page and its edit history invisible to ordinary readers. This function is restricted and that's why we have deletion discussions - to agree consensus for the use of this specific function. Deletion discussions are not appropriate when other kinds of editing actions are wanted. Moving/merging/redirecting pages are ordinary edits for which no special permission is required. You should not bring discussion of such actions to AFD as the AFD process is already overloaded to breaking point. Andrew (talk) 22:31, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Keep or Merge all as is. Since Hank Hill is notable, some of the characters could be merged into List of King of the Hill characters. JJ98 (Talk) 00:50, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Keep and close discussion but reopen it without Hank Hill or as individual nominations. The fact that numerous editors feel or will feel that Hank alone should be an independent article will make it very difficult to determine an independent consensus for the other pages.--Yaksar (let's chat) 05:30, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

Disney franchises

AfDs for this article:
    One Hundred and One Dalmatians (franchise) (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs|views) – (View AfD · Stats)
    (Find sources: "One Hundred and One Dalmatians (franchise)" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · JSTOR · free images)

    Fantasia (franchise) (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs|views)
    Pocahontas (franchise) (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs|views)

    These franchise articles are just simply an amalgamation or existing articles and other releases related to the topic without any indication of notability of the "franchise" themselves or backed up by independent coverage in reliable sources. Existing navboxes appear to serve a better purpose than these simplified summaries. The narrow focus of these to Disney for much broader topics such as Hercules and Tarzan makes one think these are just promotional venues for Disney and definitely creates some ambiguity over those creations/characters as a whole.StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 21:58, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

    To add context to this discussion, these are the other franchise articles for Walt Disney Animation Studios films (plus the Pixar ones):--Coin945 (talk) 13:35, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

    Note that 3 of these don't exist and 1, The Emperor's New Groove (franchise), was deleted following an AfD. Also note that the author of these articles is not !voting to keep them but just informing the community that other stuff exists. --StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 22:40, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
    Whoops thanks for reminding me. I'll cross it out. When it comes to something like this, OtherStuffExists is an essential concept to ascribe to. These are essentially the exact same articles on diffrent Disney franchises. We have to compare them and examine the context of the franchises. Are some more notable than others? Is there a template that the articles should follow? Etc.--Coin945 (talk) 22:50, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
    There is no concept of something being more notable than something else on Wikipedia. It's either notable or not based on WP:N and each judged on its own merits. --StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 00:27, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
    • Really doesn't help ascertain the notability of either franchise. --StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 22:40, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
    • It clarifies the assertion that they are simply "promotional venues for Disney" by trying to claim credit for the intellectual property, showing that it is indeed a franchise based off someone else's work.--Coin945 (talk) 22:48, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
    • And I thought it was self-evident that pretty much every film within the official Disney canon has been turned into a multimedia franchise.--Coin945 (talk) 22:48, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
    But these articles do not assert the notability of the individual franchises at all. Where are the sources which discuss the franchise of each as a whole (not just specific parts like a ride at Disney World). --StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 23:58, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
    Frozen (franchise), The Lion King (franchise), and Toy Story (franchise) serve as idyllic templates for the sorts of articles. Just because sources aren't in the others atm, it doesn't mean they don't exist.--Coin945 (talk) 11:54, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

    • Keep - I think the articles should be kept, because they are the only articles that include all of the media related to the original Disney movies in one place. These main franchise articles give a decent summary by type of media, year released, links to existing articles and redlinks for articles that could be created. The articles are similar to a "List of media related to XX movie", and thus do not need to be notable in and of themselves. Jllm06 (talk) 01:18, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

    • Keep per meeting WP:LISTPURP and WP:SALAT. There has been long-standing consensus to have and maintain lists of notable topics (themselves adequately notable and sourced) and I see no reason to reverse that consensus here. Schmidt, Michael Q. 11:34, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

    Renaming

    If it is decided they should be kept, the new naming scheme should be decided. Do you prefer Disney's Tarzan (franchise) or Tarzan (Disney franchise)?--Coin945 (talk) 13:29, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

    If non-controversial, that would be an issue for regular editing. Schmidt, Michael Q. 13:38, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
    For works based on existing sources, like Tarzan, Winnie the Pooh, Peter Pan, etc., then I think Tarzan (Disney franchise) is preferable, so as to better match up with the original source. Jllm06 (talk) 00:09, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

    Now that we are discussing these franchises, I think it is worth bringing this article to the table as well. There are franchise articles to be made on newer ones like Atlantis (Disney franchise) (2001-present) and Brother Bear (franchise) (2003-present), and for the sake of completeness, it would be nice to have Emperor back too.--Coin945 (talk) 16:14, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

    • Normally this would have to go through DRV, but the mention of it being a PROD causes it to technically fall under REFUND's gates. I'm willing to send this to DRV if anyone contests this. If so, I'll list it, make a note at REFUND, but leave the article up for DRV to look over while its under consideration. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 08:41, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
    • Keep all Articles that list all the notable films and books and whatnot over decades, show that is a notable franchise, because of how many notable things were part of it. You don't need the words "list of" at the front of an article's name, to be a list article. Dream Focus 09:19, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

    The following discussion is an archived debate of the proposed deletion of the article below. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page (such as the article's talk page or in a deletion review). No further edits should be made to this page.

    The result was no consensus. (WP:NPASR). Of note is that the first two !votes don't provide a guideline- or policy-based rationale for article retention. Part of the nomination has been countered with the addition of sources to the article (e.g. The Washington Times) after it was nominated for deletion. Closing as no consensus with no prejudice against speedy renomination due to 1) the first two "keep" !votes carrying little weight, and 2) the remaining three !votes (including the nomination) comprise overall inadequate input for a solid consensus to be determined here, although it is leaning delete. Per the "weak keep" !vote, a merge discussion can continue on an article talk page, if desired. (Non-administrator closure) NorthAmerica1000 23:21, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
