The Iron GiantWarner's previous animated feature, Quest for Camelot, failed badly. Rather than accept that it was a pretty bad flick, big wigs blamed the animated movie industry as a whole. Thus, they wanted to back off the promotion of their upcoming film about a giant robot who crashes from space. This doomed the film, which barely made back half of its $60 million budget. When the production was released to near-universal acclaim, the studio realized their mistake, but it was too late to ramp up an effective promotional campaign. Despite all this, the movie managed to collect a devoted following: Cartoon Network showed it annually on Thanksgiving for 24 hours straight for a few years.
