Balto: A call from the fans sign now

Balto is an animated film that never got the recognition it should have.
From year to year, the Balto community of fans has grown, at the speed of people who get to know of its existence.

We (Balto fans) feel that Universal never realized the potential of this license. We wish for the Balto license to have a better future, rather than just making sequel after sequel as has been done with the "Land Before Time" series.
We want to let Universal know that there are a lot of Balto fans out there, especially in comparison to the (still small) number of people who got the chance to see it.

This animated film should be recognized the way it ought to have been years ago: as a great classic, which had great potential, yet never became well known due to a lack of advertising, weak efforts, and wrong marketing choices (releasing the film at the same time as Toy Story was probably the biggest error possible.)
We (the fans) feel that it's not too late, and there are a few things Universal could do to exploit their license in a good way.

A list of things Universal Pictures could do, to promote Balto, includes:

- Release a special edition of the Balto DVD, with widescreen, deleted scenes, commentaries, a good cover, and the same for the sequels
- Make a Balto video game
- Restart making Balto merchandises (plushies, books, t-shirts...)
- Release the soundtracks of the sequels on a CD
- Create a TV series
- Reshow the original film in theaters
- Build a Balto ride in one of Universal theme parks
- Make a box set with the three Balto films
- Better distribution, worldwide (for example, Wings of Change was difficult to find at its release, even in the USA, and the original Balto is still difficult to find.)
- As for the sequels for upcoming Balto movies, keep up with the original standards from the first movie. Always base the sequels on the original, not substories.

We would be glad if Universal would realize just one of these "fan wishes", because it would say that even big companies like Universal can understand the fans. We also think that both Universal and the fans and customers would win if such things were to happen.

Of course, you don't have to be interested in everything previously listed to sign this petition. It is mostly here to let Universal know that there are more Balto fans than they think, and for that reason they should sometimes listen to us.

So, if you like Balto and think that it deserves to be more popular, sign the petition!
