Mark Evanier (70's and 80's cartoon/sit-com/comic book writer) answered the age-old question of "Why Did That Wildly Popular Cartoon Show Get Cancelled" (in this case, "Garfield & Friends").

It's also a kind of back-door explanation of why some other long-running shows such as Super Friends stayed on the air by changing their title every other year or so - "Okay, so you won't pay more for Super Friends, but how about a NEW DEAL for 'Super Friends: The Legendary Super Powers Show'?"
