Buffy Animated Series To Be Made, Finally, Maybe

Like a pot that someone forgot to turn down, Buffy the Vampire Slayer continues to bubble along merrily.  The end of the television series in 2003 brought on a blizzard of rumours, each more desperate than the last: first there was the Faith series, then the Spike series, then the Faith and Spike series, then the Ripper series, and a particularly tenacious one about 'a series of TV movies' featuring Faith and Spike, or Spike and Faith, or a sack of potatoes with the word 'Spike' written on it.  Most recently, the original Buffy movie producers have blown smoke up the collective ass of fans with the spectre of an un-Whedoned Buffy movie.
