The logo description is not very good and it might also use copyrighted text without permission. It is generally a good idea, but it should be rewritten. --Megara 23:54, 22 January 2006 (UTC)

Turner Entertainment Co.'s animation library[edit]

Here's Turner Entertainment Co.'s animation library before Warner Bros. absorbed it:

Turner Entertainment films[edit]

Should not there the category "Turner Entertainment films"? --186.182.145.201 (talk) 22:25, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

Library[edit]

The library section has gotten out of hand -- it's almost completely unreferenced, and goes into far too much detail for an article in a general encyclopedia. Trivialist (talk) 02:47, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

Anyone else have any thoughts about this? Trivialist (talk) 20:48, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

I disagree. Since Turner Entertainment is primarily a holding company it is important to state what it does and doesn't own; although I do think it should have more refrences and be cut down a little bit. Luxoman237 (talk) 06:02, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

I don't think it's necessary to get down to specific titles and exceptions; this is a general encyclopedia article, not an exhaustive listing. Giving a general overview of its holdings (pre-1986 MGM, Hanna-Barbera) seems reasonable; the long list of exceptions is overly detailed. (Just to pick two, Rambo and the Forces of Freedom and Lazer Tag Academy probably don't even merit a mention, much less one or two sentences each explaining their specific details about the companies that produced them. It's like having an article about a real estate developer, and listing every single parking lot they own and who they acquired them from -- it's more detail than is really necessary.

Also, it's only source seems to be people's memories of what logos were shown at the end of programs, which is not a reliable source. Trivialist (talk) 12:10, 24 April 2013 (UTC)

Turner Entertainment Co.'s library[edit]

Extended content

Just in case anyone is curious, here's what Turner Entertainment Co. owns and doesn't own:

Turner Entertainment's library includes the following:

  • Original in-house programing, such as documentaries about the films it owns, animated series, TV specials, and made-for-TV movies, miniseries, and theatrical films

Turner Entertainment also distributes certain films and shows from New Line Cinema (1994–1997) as well as shows from TBS, TNT, Cartoon Network, truTV and PBS (1994–2004) on home video through Turner Home Entertainment and later, after it got absorbed, Warner Home Video.

There are very few exceptions to this library, however.

You know, if you can provide references for this, you could probably spin it off into its own article ("List of Turner Entertainment holdings" or something like that). Trivialist (talk) 23:20, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
Again, put this in its own article or something; this talk page is for discussing the article, not Turner Entertainment. Trivialist (talk) 23:25, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

Those interested in this topic may want to contribute to Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/List of Turner Entertainment holdings. Trivialist (talk) 14:32, 5 May 2013 (UTC)
