From The Archives: Cartoons That Could Have Been

(originally posted on August 14, 2010)

Here are three pilots I found on for cartoon series that were never developed further. All of them are interesting, more so than any number of current animated programs currently littering Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon.

Give 'em a look!


This pilot was never aired because a scene near the end was said to be similar to the events of 911. Pity too. It looks like it had potential.


A pilot for the DC Comics character that was co-developed by Tom Kenny, the voice of Spongebob Squarepants, of all people!

UPDATE:  Since this article was first published, Cartoon Network has commissioned a series of one minute animated shorts based on this pilot to air as part of their Saturday morning DC Nation block.  This hardly qualifies as the full fledged series originally imagined, but it is nice to know the idea has lived on in some form or another.


This last one is only a promo and not a complete pilot but it's still interesting.
