Cartoon Brew’s View We’ve seen WBD lean heavily on popular catalog franchises recently, so the news of Totally Spies! getting picked up is hardly surprising. That’s especially true after Max bosses promised to launch 40 new titles and seasons every month after the HBO Max-Discovery+ hybrid launches next month.
