So what's the difference between this and the millions of dollars the movie industry makes on toys, T-shirts, and other junk whenever they release a film?

I agree with Tidy Catz, it's rediculous to ask it be blocked!! Most cartoons have been :30minute long commercials for toys...FOR YEARS!!

jeffrey and tidy cats are both right, almost every cartoon now a days is just a big long ad. however, the difference is zevo 3 really sucks!!! its not as bad as rush zone! but it still is a crappy show. maybe they should take the show off the air because its a pile of crap. instead of using advertising loopholds

I watched the show... and It actually surpassed my expectations. The merchandise was not mentioned at all in the series, it played a bit like Generator Tex. It wasn't fantastic, but it definitely wasn't terrible.
It should be getting a second season in my opinion, it was better than a lot of other crappy shows out right now.
