    Yeah, it is, but it's a late night deal. Still, it's kind of amazing how long it's managed to keep it's claws dug in to a portion of the schedule.

    It shares it's late night banishment with a lot of 'little cartoons that couldn't' though. Robotboy, Chop Socky Chooks, Hero 108, stuff like that.

    Sheep in the Big City. I thought this show was really funny at times.

    The Terrible Thunderlizards. I only saw a few episodes of this waaay back. I love the intro though, definitely done better then in today's cartoons.

    Wow, this thread is still going? Cool!

    Anyway, I was looking at Wikipedia's list of shows aired on Cartoon Network.and I found this. Fat Dog Mendoza, a cartoon about an obese dog who hangs out with some kids who fight crime. Apparently it was only aired in the UK. Anybody who lives over there, do you remember watching this?

    Also, it's not exactly a cartoon, but I feel that I should mention Nickelodeon's Mr. Meaty. From what I remember it was decent, although a LOT of people hated it. Anybody else remember this?

    I recently started watching Cybersix, I remember the show was rather short lived when it aired on Fox Kids. I remember watching a few episodes of it back in the day, and I didn't really like it. Never really did understand why Cybersix would disguise herself as a man during the day, still don't really... (I get the whole secret identity thing but why as a man?)

    Watching it now I love the concept, I'm 8 episodes into it so far and its pretty good. It even inspired me to look up the original comic its based on, and to no surprise discovered that the show is very watered down compared to the original comic.

    The show didn't really catch on in the US, but as I'm watching it I can kinda see why, the character designs are almost exactly like the original comic the show is based on, they're... different but I like them. Cybersix has the best design hands down though. I also didn't know that this show was considered an anime.

    The voices are ok, but the dialogue feels kinda clunky and awkward. At times the dialogue feels incomplete. And then theres the soundtrack, it just doesn't fit the scene most of the time and is often too loud and annoying. The show was definitely in need of better writers and a more fitting soundtrack.

    But despite its flaws I gotta say I like the show and its a shame we didn't get more than 13 episodes. Most cartoons have a rocky first season and this was probably no different. The one thing I've noticed so far is that this show doesn't know what audience it was trying to appeal to. At times the show feels dark and serious but then it throws elements of slapstick, idk its just hard to take Jose and his henchman seriously sometimes. I'd love to see what they could have done with a second season, but I'm a little disappointed that the series didn't take itself more seriously given the original source material.

    Its unfortunate but I doubt we'll ever see another Cybersix series. The show never really caught on, FOX axed it after only a few episodes. The show does seem to have a following in Canada and France but not much else. And for some odd reason the comics have never officially been translated into English. I'm a little surprised a more faithful anime hasn't been made yet, the whole premise screams anime.

    I love the concept and universe of Cybersix, and would definitely love to see another show thats a more faithful adaption of the original comics.

    At any rate, Pecola - this aired on CN back during, oh I can't even remember, it was a very kid-oriented show about a prankster penguin that loved pudding. All the characters were blocks and it was CGI animated, and strangely enough, the animation was pretty competent. The one thing I remember about it was that incessantly catchy theme song.
    Yeah!! Pecula! I remember it being on RV in 2003 - 2004. Hadn't seen it since and found it in August 2011 after 8 years! I remember Pecula from my childhood! It was only shown on Rv in 2003 I think but it could have been in 2004 too, I'm not sure.

    Pet Alien. Just found it few months after not having seen it since 2005 / 2006, it was also on RV. I remember it so much, I loved it! part of my childhood. ^_^

    How about Maggie and the Ferocious Beast? I remember that being on RV too, sometime in 2001 - 2003. o.o

    Martin Morning or Matti Morgunn as he's called here in Iceland? I know here in Iceland it's not totally dead. Adverts on the main Cable / TV company here (Sminn) But what about out there?

    Ned's Newt - Funny, but unusually wired. Newt kinda looks like the genie from Aladdin.

    Oswald - Gentle, soft series. Quite good for those who are frustrated.

    Samurai Jack - Three words: Awesome, Awesome-r and Awesome-st.

    Roboroach - "Why me? why me? Why all the time me?". I still remember that line from Reg. Overall, great show.

    Maggie and the Ferocious Beast - Best Teletoon show ever! Beast was funny when he always loses his red spots.

    Captain Flamingo - Milo Powell (aka Captain Flamingo) was the best character in the show. I've always liked his flamingo costume and his best friend Lizbeth. He always have good strategics/plans.

    The Book of Pooh - I still remember the intro to this show. The show used to creep me out, when it comes to puppetry.

    Not sure if this has been mentioned yet (would do a search, but it's busted right now), but anyone here catch The Dick and Paula Celebrity Special? It was by the same people who made Dr. Katz and Home Movies, and briefly aired on FX. The premise was a talk show where long deceased people were interviewed in the present day, such as Charles Darwin. It was OK, but I liked Katz and Movies a lot more.

    All of this three are among the greatest Teletoon shows so far. Ned's Newt is currently air on Teletoon Retro, but the humor and the art style being tame after 3 episodes. And i agree for Newton who morph and act as the Aladdin's Genie.

    Roboroach is simply my favourite show from Teletoon. A great cartoon comedy basic which this network should pick more.

    And same for Maggie. One of the most recognisable preschool's shows of the last decade and was a favourite of mine too.
    I like any kinds of arts forms who exist, but the ones who catch my attention is the ones i mostly care.

    Here's three more...

    Midnight Patrol :
    An extremely rare cartoon about a group of kids who enter into a dream realm every night they go to bed where they help the citizens ward off various problems. This one I think was made by Hanna-Barbera, and probably aired in the late 80's early 90's. It's such a rare show.

    Cave Kids: Another spinoff of The Flintstones; although I don't think it ever aired here in the States. Anyway it was a pre-school based show with Pebbles, Bam-Bam and Dino going off on their own adventures. I don't think Fred, Wilma, Barney or Betty were ever shown; and the kids actually talked in this one.

    The Legend of Prince Valient: Now I don't think anyone's ever heard of this show. I only saw bits n' pieces of it as a kid, so I don't remember a whole lot about it. I think it aired on the old Family Channel in the early 90's.

    Has anyone mentioned Gravedale High yet? I didn't feel like reading page after page after page of responses, lol. But yeah, I'd say Gravedale High is a perfect example of a show we'll probably never see again or get on DVD, it was only 13 episodes and really didn't take off if I remember correctly. Still, I loved the opening theme song and I enjoyed the few episodes I actually have seen of it back when it originally aired on Saturday mornings.

    Yeah, I have a....

    I think that's still on Boomerang. It's also on DVD - not sure if they're still in print or not, but they're pretty affordable on Amazon. It's also on iTunes.

    Gravedale High, which ran for a single season on NBC on Saturday mornings in 1990, was actually a vehicle for actor/comedian Rick Moranis, riding high on the success of the Ghostbusters film franchise. In fact, the show's official title was Rick Moranis in Gravedale High.

    Moranis voiced 'Max Schnieder', the only human teacher at a high school for monsters.

    Fun fact about Gravedale High: The theme song was by John Carl Parker, the same guy who did the theme songs for CHiPs, Trapper John M.D., and Cannon. It sounds nothing like his '70s work, though.
