    FOX (ended 1998)
    Sam and Max is about a dog and a rabbity thing. That's what you would think when you first see it. Then you would notice that the dog is six feet tall and dresses like a Canine Columbo. You would also take note that the rabbit is 3 feet tall and wears nothing but a manic grin. These bizarre creatures are Sam and Max, the Freelance Police. Getting their orders in the form of brief, cryptic phone calls from the Commissioner, a man who they have never met but is the duo's only contact with any real government agency, Sam and Max battle evil villains everywhere from the moon to the past to their back yard. They are assisted by The Geek, a teenage genius who lives in Sam and Max's Sub-Basement of Solitude. Throughout all of their battles and quests, Sam and Max's own style of humor, although zany and weird, allows them to make it in what they do. But, why, oh, why, did FOX cancel this? I think TeleToon still has repeats. Also BBCKids, I think. I have purposely left the episode synopses vague due to the convoluted nature of this show and as to not give too many of the jokes. I could added more detailed summary in the recap area, if requested.moreless

That meant whenever Mega Man defeated one of these evil robots he would attain their powers for use it good as he was programed for. Mega Man and his trusty canine sidekick, Rush, would fight the evil robots, and occasionally they'd be joined by Mega Man's sister, Roll. But Dr. Wily also stole one other robot...

    Mike, Lu & Og

    Cartoon Network (ended 2000)
    Welcome to the Mike Lu & Og Guide at TV.com. Mike Lu & Og is one of Cartoon Network's shows that belongs to a collection of original network series known as Cartoon Cartoons. It premiered on Friday May 7, 1999 during the Cartoon Cartoons Fridays block. The show features a spunky, red-haired girl named Mike (short for Micheline; call her that and you'll be in big trouble), who's a foreign exchange student from Manhattan, New York, a stuck-up island princess named Lu, her cousin Og, a native boy and a scientific genius who can come up with a number of inventions as they go through the wackiest adventures as Mike learns the customs of the island of Albonquetine and the natives, in turn, learn of American culture. REGULAR CHARACTERS: Mike, a young girl from New York City who is stuck on the island. She's an exchange student on the island paradise of Albonquetine and is doing her best to fit in with the natives, while keeping her New York attitude. She often tells the islanders about common items and aspects of American culture that are rather new to them. Lu also known as LuLu, or "Princess Lu" (mainly to herself) is the island's resident brat. She has a pet turtle named Lancelot, who's friendly, but usually treated meanly by his mistress, who spends most of her time trying to get attention or trying to get rid of Mike, because most times she's able to steal the spotlight away from her. Og is Lu's cousin and gets along well with pretty much everybody. He's a genius, so he spends most of his time in his "lab" which is actually a little workshop inventing things for use on the island...many of the items he invents are food or for play (hot dogs made of coconuts for Mike, a sidewalk all over the island for skating, etc.) Alfred is Og's father and a kind man, albeit absent-minded sometimes. His main hobby is hunting, usually with a bow and plunger-tipped arrows. He particularly goes after a very elusive wombat, who with wit or dumb luck often gets away. Margery is Alfred's wife and Og's mother. She's skilled at island cooking and an artist, specializing in sculpting with chisels. She works hard, but often takes time to stop for a cup of tea at least once a day, for it's always an island custom. Wendel is Lu's father and governor of Albonquetine Island. He's often at home passing laws and approving documents, but also helps the islanders celebrate special holidays and reminding them of their history. He has a pet parrot named Skipper who at times can get on his nerves, but would be lonely without him. Queeks is the island elder the gang seeks for advice. He also has magic abilities that at times can go awry. He's a good old man, but often cranky. RECURRING CHARACTERS: Goat, Pig, and Spiney (the Porcupine) make up the island's Philosophical Society with Og. They have weekly meetings discussing various topics, a number of which lead to debate. They're all intellectuals, but speak only in Og's presence and act like regular animals when anyone else walks by. The Pirates, consisting of The Captain, Mate and Bos'n, live off the island where there's little food and they're always hungry as a result. Their favorite delicacy is turtle soup which usually leads to danger for Lancelot if they ever cross paths, as he's sure to be captured and put in their pot. Fortunately for him, Mike, Lu and Og are always around to rescue him. The Cuzzlewits are the clan that live on the other side of Albonquetine Island. They're wilder and more savage than the regular gang Mike knows. But there's at least one exception with preteen girl Hermione, who's smart and sophisticated, particularly by they way she speaks. She not afraid to offer her opinions and advice and is friendly to Mike, Lu, and Og. But she has two younger brothers Haggis and Baggis, who more than make up for their sister's lack of wildness. Other links to Mike, Lu, & Og: wikipedia imdb big cartoon database Lineup History: The show premiered on Cartoon Network on May 7, 1999. It ran for two seasons from June 1999-August 2000 with 2 shorts per half-hour block. It went off that network a couple of years later, but returned on sister channel Boomerang in late 2006, where it's certain to remain. Opening theme song: (To a calypso beat) Mike, Lu, and Og--On the island, Mike, Lu, and Og--Pretty island, Where nobody goes. Palm tree and blue sky, Fish are jumping high, It's an island where nobody knows. Ain't no burger stand, Ain't no disco band, On the island where nobody goes. Whooooo-whoooo-whooo-weee! Theme song variation: (End credits of most episodes) Whooooo-whoooo-whoo-weee! Ain't no cars, no phones, ain't no parking zone, Ain't no chaperones, ain't no Leprechauns, Ain't no mortgage loans, ain't no hair salons, Ain't no savings bonds, ain't no ice cream cones, Ain't no free coupons, ain't no silicone, Ain't no parmesan, ain't no kidney stones, Ain't no microphones, ain't no slide trombones, ain't no carry-ons.

The series can now be found with some episodes on VHS/DVD. Character Profiles Charlie B. (Burt) Barkin:(German Shepherd) The main hero of the series. He's lived (well sorta, since he was in Heaven from 1939 til 1996) a very long life, as a gambler, a trickster, and sometimes an all around menace. But when things get tough for him and his friends, he will always pull through and save the day... even if he often annoys them to near insanity. Though it is never mentioned, his birthday is September 13th. Itchy Itchiford: (Dachsund) Charlie's longtime, flea-infested sidekick/friend. Shy, but very loyal to his friends. Sasha LaFleur: (Irish Setter) A seductive, attractive dog, who owns a cafe known as "The Flea Bite". Charlie's always after her, but Sasha just won't admit her love to him, even though she really does love him deep down inside. Gerta: Sasha's friend who often helps out at the cafe. Anabelle: (Whippet) The Archangel of Canine Heaven. She keeps a close watch on Charlie and tries to keep him out of trouble. Though she acts as a friend (and also somewhat of an overprotective mother!) to him, there is questioning from the first movie, as to whether or not she is in love with him. Bess: Itchy's girlfriend, who he once saved from getting run over. Bess is a very talented pooch, who's won many awards. Carface Caruthers: (Pit Bull) A mean and greedy dog, who's had it out for Charlie since 1939, when he almost killed (well, technically he did) him with an old car, running him off a dock. Now, he is still up to his old tricks and is often being a big pain to Charlie and co. Killer: (Mixed) Carface's longtime sidekick, who's very loyal to him. He's somewhat of a technical wizard and loves building things. Belladonna: (Whippet) (Didn't appear until Second Season) Though Belladonna is actually Anabelle's cousin, they act like twin sisters... with Belladonna being the traditional Evil one. She is, in almost every way possible, the exact opposite of Anabelle, wanting nothing more than utter destruction. She often tries to trick Charlie into joining her, and almost succeeds, but luckily, Charlie's will was too strong for her to control when his friends became involved.moreless

    Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo is the 1979 update of the classic Scooby-Doo character. This was the fourth Scooby-Doo cartoon to date and introduced the world to Scrappy-Doo, Scooby's puppy nephew. Despite being related, Scrappy-Doo was not much like his uncle, Scooby. Situations that would normally cause Scooby-Doo to react in frozen terror would result in Scrappy-Doo putting up his paws and shouting "Lemme at 'em! I'll splat 'em!". Due to his small size and hot temper, Scrappy-Doo would often be in physical danger, forcing Scooby-Doo and Shaggy to reluctantly save him. Scooby, Scrappy, and the rest of Mystery, Inc. were still out solving mysteries. In this series they encounter some truly out-of-this-world characters including the UFO Weirdo, Aztec Acapulco Sea Creature, Sky Skeleton, Devil Bear, and Snake Demon of Haiti. Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo ran for one exciting season in 1979 and had Scooby-Doo fans young and old talking about "Puppy Power!"moreless

    FOX (ended 2001)
    Sherlock Holmes has been rescusitated in the 22nd century to combat Moriarty's clone. With the help of a droid programmed with the personality of Watson, Inspector Beth Lestrade of New Scotland Yard, and the Baker Street Irregulars, Holmes searches for clues and usually manages to come up with a solution that keeps everyone guessing. Characters Sherlock Holmes: Sharp as a tack, but not a real people person, this guy is pretty self explanatory. He uses deductive logic (i.e. All lights in this room are green. There is a light on the table. Therefore it must be green.) to solve crimes. If you listen hard, you can usually follow his explanation, at least by the last few minutes of the show. Watson: A compudroid programmed to have the personality of Watson (complete with the phrase "I don't understand, Holmes. How did you know..."), Watson was initially rejected by Holmes, who thought no one, and especially no robot, could replace the real Watson. Watson is great in a tight spot, as he is much stronger than the average human (and most of the non-average ones as well). Inspector Beth Lestrade: Apparently a descendant of the Lestrade in the original short stories, this girl is something else. Wild, reckless, destructive, always bucking authority, and generally "tough-cop", she is always ready to act on insufficient information. But, all in all, she usually settles down enough to be of some service at least once or twice an episode. Wiggins: A would-be boxer, this guy used to play soccer at Princeton. He is one of the Baker Street Irregulars, employed by Holmes to be an extra set of eyes, ears, and legs. Wiggins checks out leads, shadows people, and generally helps Holmes out by gathering facts. He has a girlfriend named Jacey, but as far as I know she hasn't figured into much. Deidre: This girl is also one of the Baker Street Irregulars, and does mostly the same things as Wiggins. However, she sometimes sees things a different way than either Holmes, Watson, or Wiggins, and this unique perspective makes her invaluable. Tennison: Confined to an anti-grav chair, Tennison is the computer expert of the bunch. He helps Holmes out by checking computer systems and security systems. Moriarty: Cloned back to life as an accident, he is again wreacking havoc, though this time in New London. He is Holmes' archenemy, and was basically the model for a lot of evil geniuses with extensive networks.moreless

    CBS (ended 1994)
    Cadillacs and Dinosaurs is the brainchild of Mark Schultz, who originally created the series in comic book format under the title Xenozoic Tales in the year 1986. The television series came to be through the marketing of Marvel Comics, when (years later) the company had acquired the rights to the property and attempted a revival of the popularity it once held in comic format. The series followed the exploits of survival-savvy garage mechanic Jack Tenrec, (who had a passion for restoring classic car shells, mainly those of Cadillacs) and his often-reluctant companion, the lovely foreign ambassador Hannah Dundee (who hired Jack as a liason while she attempted to create clear communication between her land and the modern civilization) as they confronted serious issues facing the futuristic environment that they (and the rest of humanity) had come to inhabit alongside many dinosaurs that were long thought to be extinct. Jack, leading his crew (a band of ecological freedom fighters known as the Mechanics), squared off against opposition in the form of the Council of Governors, the tyrannical Wilhelmina Scharnhorst and her nefarious henchmen among others. The show dealt with many strong ecologicial (one major focus was the question of how the dinosaurs managed to re-emerge after they were thought to be extinct) and political issues that were central to the plot development. As a result of that coupled with the placement amidst a programming schedule that consisted of shows mainly geared toward a younger demographic, it went virtually unnoticed. This show boasted superb animation and was surprisingly well-written. Many fans who can remember viewing it note the superior quality as one of the reasons they first started to enjoy the short-lived series. In total, Cadillacs and Dinosaurs lasted for one full season (13 episodes) and was never considered for renewal.moreless

    City Hunter

    Follow
    (ended 1991)
    If you're desperate and need a job done, write "XYZ" on the bulletin board at Shinjuku Station. That is a signal that you want to hire City Hunter. Ryo Saeba and Kaori Makumura make up City Hunter. Ryo is calm, cool, and an amazingly accurate shot. He is also the biggest lech since Ataru Moroboshi. Kaori is the "sister" (no blood relation, she was adopted) of Ryo's deceased partner and runs the business side of City Hunter. This story is very funny due to the face that it contains perverted jokes and elements. I don't know how they managed to keep everything at a G level. I highly recommend this series. This series is best watched in the original Japanese with English subtitles, it is very interesting to hear the voice actors stretch their voices to the limit on this one. Another thing to look for is the soundtrack, the music used in this series is worth a listen, even if you don't understand Japanese. Ryo Saeba - No one, even Ryo himself, knows who he really is. Orphaned at the age of three in a plane crash in South America, he was adopted by a group of mercenaries and became a mercenary himself. (As a result, even Ryo does not know when his real birthday is.) In fact, he is one of the best. His abilities include successive one-hole shots from ten metres, ultra sensitive hearing (he can hear a gun cock from far away), and the ability to shoot a person, while missing all the vital organs. Despite this, his main weakness is women. In fact, he is one of the most PERVERTED people in animation. Yet even through all of this, women still manage to fall for him after getting to know him better (no, not that way....). The one woman he truly loves however, is Kaori Makimura, but he refrains from expressing his love for fear that it would jeopardize her life. So he goes on in his merry Mokkori ways.... Hideyuki Makimura - As the series starts, Hideyuki is Ryo's partner in the business. A former police officer, he left the force after certain situations rendered him helpless to assist innocent civilians (like those who would call XYZ for their services). He is soon killed by a drug cartel for refusing to commit to their nefarious plans. Kaori Makimura - According to Kaori, she is Hideyuki's younger sister. According to Hideyuki, Kaori was adopted as an infant, the child of a murderer killed by police. After Hideyuki's death, she takes over his duties as Ryo's partner. Unlike Hideyuki, however, if Ryo tries to get too close to his beautiful female clients, Kaori will protect them by smashing Ryo's head in with a 100 ton mallet. Kaori herself is also attracted by Ryo's charms and character, but because of Ryo's lecherousness, she keeps her feelings to herself. Kaori's main peeve is being seen as a man by not only women, but Ryo himself. It seems that Kaori's true goal with Ryo is to be seen as attractive while invoking jealousy and perhaps even love in him. Hayato Ijuin AKA Umibozu AKA Falcon - Like Ryo, he was a mercenary in South America and also works as a sweeper in Shinjuku. This gigantic man is known for his awesome strength, and his ability to take a licking and keep on ticking. Whereas Ryo tends to solve a problem through cunning and guile, Umibozu tends to solve a problem using a blunt force approach: with a bazooka in one hand, and a machine gun in the other. Umibozu's greatest weakness is cats, including cute kittens, he loses all his strength at the sound of a cat's meow. Strangely enough, cats are very attracted to him, and his life partner Miki owns a shop called the "Cat's Eye". To some of his former enemies and comrades (including Miki), he is known as "Falcon". Saeko Nogami - A detective with the Tokyo Police department, Saeko is Hideyuki's former partner in the force, and is a good acquaintance of Ryo. She is also a great manipulator of men. Whenever she is in a tight spot with a case, she calls Ryo to assist her in completing her mission with the promise that she will sleep with him. Of course, she is always able to duck out of it in the end, so Ryo keeps a record of how many times Saeko "owes" him. Reika Nogami - Saeko's younger sister, Reika, like Ryo, works in the private sector and is also a former police officer. Like her older sister, she is also a great manipulator of men. Therefore, all her clients are typically male. If she needs Ryo to help her in a tight spot, she does not ask him outright, but rather use him as fodder for her protection. Unlike her sister though, Reika is TOTALLY attracted to Ryo and strives to be his partner in life and crime one day, much to the jealousy of Kaori. Miki - Umibozu's Partner. As a young man in his mercenary years, Umibozu found Miki as an 8 year old orphan. He then took her under his wing and taught her all the skills she would need to survive. However, several years later, Miki began showing affection towards Umibozu, so he ran away from her. Miki spent the next few years looking for Umibozu and when she finally did, she would become his life partner. Miki is the only girl in the series who does not display any attraction to Ryo Saeba whatsoever. Kasumi Aso - Also known as Phantom 305, she enlisted Ryo's help in getting a black rose back from a corrupt psychic. Later in the series, she enlists his help in breaking an arranged marriage to someone she detested. But in doing so, the head of the clan discovered that her heart had been "stolen" by Ryo. Kasumi was then forbidden to return home until she "stole" Ryo's heart. Kasumi thus works as a waitress at the Cat's Eye and becomes a recurring member of the cast. In 2005, the long awaited sequel to City Hunter, "Angel Heart" premiered on Japanese Television. "Angel Heart" portrays a darker side of City Hunter, one that includes the loss of one of City Hunter's most revered characters......moreless

    Every week (well, most of the time...) a character from the Disney Pantheon hosts the series with a lesson on their area of expertease. Or at least they TRY to teach a lesson...The host then leads the episode into the show's three regular segments:

    HE'S BONKERS! - These were the shorts that Bonkers D. Bobcat was making before he got fired and became a police officer. Bonkers often has a deadline he has to meet, but in the process he winds up causing a lot of pain for his sidekick, Jitters A. Dog. But appreciation from the lovely Fawn Deer keeps him going.

    TOTALLY TASTELESS VIDEOS - Parodies of various movies and TV shows.

    MARSUPILAMI - Andre Franquin's popular character stars in his own shorts, here a wacky jungle creature with a best friend named Maurice the Ape and an arch-villain named Norman

    Only 12 episodes were made of this fairly unpopular series. However, two of the shorts continued on in their own series afterwards. Marsupilami got his own show as did Bonkers.

    The series later aired on Toon Disney for a few years but currently no longer airs in the US since the network became Disney XD.moreless
