Cast[edit]

"Billy West as the Pointy-Haired Boss's Boss ..." - Are you sure it's Billy West? It sound's an awful lot like Tom Kenny. - Jigsy 23:50, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

I don't think it sounds like Billy West either, but he has the IMDB credit. [1]

Release[edit]

I'm correct in saying that "The Complete Series" has never been released outside of Canada and the United States. (I've never seen it in stores over in England.) - Jigsy 20:00, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Amazon UK have 3 entries, one is the region 1 import (says so in the title), I'm not sure what the other two are. Region 2 release? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.92.62.165 (talk) 02:38, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

There is a a one disc DVD released in the UK (region 2) which contains the first four episodes, I haven't been able to find any others though. ChaosE 21:13, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

Cancelation[edit]

Can anyone tell me why it was canceled? If so, it should go on the page. Was it because of insufficient audience? Tprosser 12:24, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Yes, I'm wondering this too: why? --Andylong 22:30, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

I think it was canceled because it was too good for a general audience. MalwareSmarts 14:41, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

Episode notability[edit]

All the existing individual episode pages for Dilbert fail notability guidelines, including the notability guidelines for television episodes, and have been tagged accordingly. Might I suggest these articles are improved with real-world information (ie. referencing with reliable sources) to assert notability, removing trivia (seeWP:TRIVIA) quotes, overly long plot summaries (a breach of copyright) or consider merging the information onto the list of episodes page. Otherwise, when these pages come up for review in fourteen days, they may be redirected, merged or deleted. If you want any help or info, then come to Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Television/Episode coverage. Thanks, Gwinva 07:39, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Dogbert Swing.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Dogbert Swing.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Wish I could have been older[edit]

Now that I'm old enough to understand the episodes, and have watched all of them again, I can relate to them all - which was something I couldn't do back when they were first aired. I wished that I had been more of a fan, like most, because I would have loved to have seen a third season. Bttfvgo (talk) 01:52, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Dumbed Down?[edit]

It would seem that the show took a drastic turn from a software engineering to product development to appeal to a mass audience, is there any confirmation of this? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.223.243.5 (talk) 16:25, 24 June 2010 (UTC)
