For the reason Pinky and the Brain, Freakazoid, Animaniacs, Earthworm Jim, and Road Rovers were all canceled, you can look to this man:



Jamie Kellner.

He also believed recording programs off television was stealing.

Motherfucker.

Unless it's some sort of trick, which in that case...well played NeoGAF.

i got this on dvd. out of the 6 (i think) episodes maybe 1 or 2 i liked and even then it wasnt omg awesome. i think if they had more time (meaning more episodes) to figure it out it would have improved.

Invader Zim and Gargoyles

What really sucks about Gargoyles is that Disney has burned the fans 3 times! First they cancel it, then bring it back, but with bad writing and animation, and finally they cancel the DVD releases!

I'm very bitter about the whole Gargoyles dvd issue. It just seems cruel to not release volume 3. At least Invader Zim had all its episodes released, with awesome commentaries on most episodes.

Well, in his defense, he did try to revamp Pinky & The Brain before canceling it when he told the producers they had to add new, marketable characters, leading to the incredible, unforgettable classic: Pinky, Elmyra & The Brain.

The man's a genius, I tells ya. A genius.

...whenever Poochie's not onscreen, all the other characters should be asking "Where's Poochie"?

:lol

It would not surprise me if that episode was partly influenced by that madness, considering they both happened around the same time.

^ Pinky, Elmyra & The Brain sounds retarded at first but it was actually very funny.

I don't know if it was cancelled or whatever but I'm still annoyed that they never produced the last episode of Dungeons & Dragons.

The 2nd episode of the series is the all time funniest cartoon episode. Doing a flashback episode for your 2nd episode is the greatest idea ever.

I like to think the kids were stranded there.

Yeah, WTF happened to Korgoth? The pilot was amazing, and better than the live action crap Adult Swim puts out now.

Also, Samurai Jack was amazing. The haunted house episode was full of win.

Therefore, not sure if want.

Yep, it even predated the Sailor Moon dub by a few years, IIRC.

I remember thinking Clone High looked retarded when I saw the ads for it...then I watched all of the episodes via the only means at the time (downloading through a certain website where I get my MST3K eps).

My god, what have I done? That show was amazing!

The Pirates of Dark Water
Why did it take two posts before someone mentioned this?

Pretty much most of FOX in the early-mid 90's (Eek the Cat, Dark Water a.k.a The Pirates of Dark Water, X-Men). Throw in Rocko's Modern Life, Megas XLR (OMG the anime nuts like it!), Samurai Jack (see last parenthesis), Justice League and its sequel Unlimited, Batman: Beyond, Mission Hill...

also Invasion: America was a miniseries that ended. Technically it wasn't canceled unless it came back in another incarnation I don't know of.

Aw snap
At this point everything that needs to be said probably has been said, but I'll throw one more on the pile

Dilbert

The best thing UPN ever did (well this and 7 Days)

Definitely, I remembered really liking this show when I was little, I didn't find out what the name was until like a year or two ago.

Here's another vote for Rocko's Modern Life. Had a good 4 year run, but might have fared better with an older audience and more creative freedom. Watch it again as an adult and you get all the references you might have missed earlier.

Wasn't the Dilbert cartoon more or less just the comics but animated? I remember watching one or two episodes and some parts I know were word-for-word from the strips.

im not sure what it is about this show, but i was really cautious going into it, and ended up thoroughly liking it. there arent many shows like it on tv today, which is depressing.

also, fillmore



a detective show thats a parody of those 70's cop shows, and it was a good one. it a shame it got executed(much like the weekenders) for being the icarus to the sun that was kim possible, but it at least had 2 seasons, so i cant be too bitter

it might have done a joke used in the strip, but that was it. it was far different from the strips i'd read. way over the top with a lot of the episodes

Speaking of Sailor Moon, sad that many people in the US will probably never see the final season Sailor Stars, which imo was the cartoon at it's best - the finale was just amazing. But I guess the whole hermaphrodites being main characters put a hamper on anyone wanting to dub the episodes. I mean, if they made Sailor Uranus and Neptune cousins, who knows what would have happened to the Starlights.

And on this note, no more Sailor Moon. :(

Although, once you
Save the Universe
there is no where else you can take the series. Although I would have loved to see some episodes from Neo Tokyo, and more of Chibiusa's future.

Eek! The Cat

Such a great show. I feel bad for this generation because most of the tripe that passes for kids' entertainment is embarrassing and demeaning for everyone involved, including the kids.

It's not like they ever gave specifics or spelled it out. You could go either way.
