PIERRE BERNARD'S WISH MAY BE PARTIALLY GRANTED:From "Pierre Bernard's Recliner of Rage" on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, (Thursday, July 15th, 2004, though, technically, it was the early morning of the day after):
"Bottom line, America, the Cartoon Network should get rid of Case Closed, replace it with one of the shows I mentioned or bring back Cowboy Bebop with his nerve-calming jazz music!"
From the article "Cartoon Network Anime Updates" from AnimeNewsNetwork.com:
"Cartoon Network also stated that they do not expect to license any more Case Closed. The first two seasons, 51-episodes, of Case Closed are currently scheduled to air on Adult Swim."
So, Pierre, it's still on the air for the time being, but it appears that the show is not the success that Funimation and CN were hoping for, so you may be getting at least part of your wish soon.
