One of the most common things in animation (especially Disney) is a television series based off of a movie. Many have been acclaimed while many others have failed to attract an audience In my opinion: GOOD: The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius: I liked this show a lot back when it was on Nickelodeon, it also had many of the people who worked on the movie return to work on the show, which did the franchise justice. The Emperor's New School: I never watched the show when it was on Disney Channel, but i did watch it from 2011-12 when it was on ABC Kids and Disney XD. Many of the people who worked on the show returned, including the director of the movie. I also like how lots of the characters and locations from the movie made a return for the series. Lilo and Stitch: The Series: I loved the movie and I would occasionally watch the show on Disney Channel, it was a good show and really connected well with the movie. BAD: Monsters vs. Aliens and The Penguins of Madagascar. I think that both of these shows really didn't need to happen. The ending to the movies were fine to conclude the story (the Madagascar franchise is still running). The overall plots in both shows to me just seem like "spin-offs" and have nothing to do with the movies.
