    Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Mario both need new cartoon series. Sure, Sonic X is still playing in an infinite loop on 4Kids, but it's been the same three seasons since 2005, and they keep trying to repackage the show like it has new episodes or something. Plus, it's high time for him to get a fresh take.

    Mario needs one even worse. Mario's last cartoon series was in 1993. And it's not like the character fell off the face of the Earth. At least Sonic has that long running Archie comics series. Mario hasn't had some sort of outside medium for decades, and he's the most famous video game character of all time. Every bit of the Mario cartoon series (except for the original Donkey Kong cartoon series from Saturday Morning Supercade) has been released on DVD. But we need a new project. A cartoon series or a comic book series like Sonic and now Mega Man have. Something with that much care in writing.

    Heck, PAC MAN is getting a new cartoon series. Why does Nintendo have such a joystick up itself that they won't license out another Mario cartoon? It's not like Pokemon was high art.

    The original, classic Brit "Danger Mouse." A better spoof of Bond flicks in cartoon form never was.

    I feel old. You guys are all listing shows I've barely heard of, much less ever seen...

    Only sort of related, there was talk of a Count Duckula movie a while ago, but it was probably just a fan prank on Wikipedia.

    I was born in the 80's. There are just too many shows to name that I would love to see back on TV. I can't stand most of the junk they show on TV today. They need to bring back a lot of the older shows and cartoons so kids today can enjoy them too. It never used to be all reality shows and shows just for adults. Even Nickelodeon has gone to pot! Thank god there is Netflix and youtube! I have showed my boys what real TV was when I was a kid. One of the ones I would absolutely love for them to bring back is The Muppet Show :)

    Hey Arnold!
    Rugrats (provided the 'right sort of people' are involved)
    I wouldn't mind seeing Mickey Mouse and the gang take a similar route to the new Looney Tunes series.

    Cmon...a movie...a graphic novel series...something?? I wanna know how it ends!!

    There's a rumor circulating that Powerpuff Girls is coming back next year. I'm mixed about that... season 6 wasn't exactly a strong season, and they pretty much ran out of ideas halfway through season 5. That crazy rock opera episode was supposed to be the last one.

    there's been a rumor that Xiaolin Showdown's coming back as well... apparently it's been confirmed by Tara Strong and Grey Delise... now this show DEMANDS a comeback because the show ended on pretty much a cliff hanger where they just go off and fight the bad guys off screen as they fade to black.

    But other than that... I can't help think about Disney's Doug. Personally, I liked their Doug. It wasn't quite as strong a show and they were a little more hamfisted about the social values. Not to mention their stinginess gave us a wrong sounding Doug. But over all... MORE Quayleman episodes! The S.T.U.A.R.T. one was pretty brilliant. But everyone else hates it for some reason, and that's pretty much a prime example of what happens if a canceled show comes back. That or, like Family Guy, it finds a different audience and panders to it.

    Yeah, That Rumor's Probaly Fake, WHY: Because Craig's Working At Disney For Wonder Over Yonder, Unless Disney Makes Their Own Powerpuff Girls Like They Did With Doug :p, But Alas I Think The Show Itself Has Had It's Run.

    But didn't Craig say that he didn't want to make any more episodes of the powerpuff girls and was more or less pressured into making PPGs Rule to appease the fans?

    Or am I just crazy?

    Internet: The place where The Dark Knight Rises had The Riddler as a villain 2 months after The Dark Knight came out. And Dragon Ball AF is a series too.

    Everything's a hoax unless you get actual confirmation from the actual creators. Sometimes not even then. There's NO WAY I believe there's going to be any more PPG cartoons. Even if that was the case, it would be doing it without the creator's consent. Then it would be, like PPG GT or something. Besides, the way CN royally screwed Genndy, I doubt Craig would be looking to come back to that.

    But really... there is a portion of the Tiny Toons fanbase that wishfully lies about a Tiny Toons comeback that's comprised ENTIRELY of Fifi LaFume doing fan-service.

    Hmmmm, I don't know if I can think of one that hasn't been put up already. I personally think that the show 'Chuck' should have at LEAST had a last FULL season instead of 13 episodes, but then again, I also wish they would've had a movie of it. I think it would've made a better movie franchise. Anyways, other than THAT, maybe My Name is Earl because I think the series finale would've been awesome. I think that it should've been an hour, comprised of the first half hour being him finishing the list, and the 2nd half what he does afterwards. THEN, the last scene is him in this office and going 'So, whatcha think?' and the guy is Greg Garcia saying 'mmmm, nah, it'll never be a hit'. BUT, the only thing about Earl was that it was getting pretty shotty after season 2-3ish. I mean, it wasn't BAD but there wasn't anything where I go 'They shoulda kept it' other than the cliffhanger

    So anyway, I want to see Freaky Links revived. Like...with new episodes. The show barely lasted one season, and for the life of me I can't figure out why it failed so badly.
  16. Drtooth

    Drtooth Well-Known Member

    Ah, Earl...

    NBC said "We're going to cancel it." Then Garcia said "Fine! I'll wrap it up!" Then NBC says,"NAW, we're gonna wait and see about that. Do that cliff hanger ending you wanted." "Fine," Says Garcia. Then NBC says "You know what? it's too late, but we're completely screwing around the network, so we're ending the show as far as you got."

    And that's why we have a cliffhanger. NOT because Garcia wasn't going to wrap things up anyway, but because NBC is run by idiots... this was during the infamous Jay Leno 10 PM show debacle.

    What was that show on Nick? I can't remember it... It featured talented kids, was very funny, and had a crazy dad? Oh yes, Roundhouse!
    Maybe Are You Afraid of the Dark?

    Yeah.... the thing is that IS happening, but I think you're going to have to move to France to see it. Well, okay... you probably can find it online in French. Still have no idea when it's supposed to happen, though.
