    Noggin (ended 2006)
    Described by Doug Thomas of Amazon.com as "a little more hip than Little Bear and a little less talky than Arthur," Franklin is a delightful cartoon about Franklin Turtle, his family and his many friends. Although Franklin is a turtle, he's like any kid his age. He attends school, enjoys playing with his friends and likes to try new things on his own, although sometimes he still he needs some help from his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Turtle. He has a goldfish named Goldie and a stuffed dog named Sam. There have been a few changes to Franklin throughout its run, including the introduction of a new opening sequence and the introduction of Franklin's baby sister. There were also a few cast and crew changes. However, the important things stayed the same. The program so far has aired six seasons, as well as a direct-to-video movie, Franklin and the Green Knight and two other direct-to-video releases. Additionally, a Franklin CD was released: Hey, It's Franklin, which contains the show theme song, music from Franklin and the Green Knight and music from the retired touring Franklin show, Franklin's Big Adventure. A number of Franklin television stories are also available as books, including some never broadcast on television. The show still continues today --- check the guide and further below for more details. Franklin is based on a series of books by Paulette Bourgeois and Brenda Clark and many episodes of the program are based directly on original Franklin stories. Others that were originally written for television were later released in book form. Franklin airs daily on Noggin cable/satellite. Noggin shows the program two times a day, including weekends. The showtimes are 11 A.M. and 5P.M. eastern time every day. Noggin seems to show episodes in no particular order, so check listings if you want to know what you're recording/watching. Check local listings for showtimes in your area. Also, check stores, Amazon.com, or your local library for videos and DVDs of classic episodes of Franklin. In Canada, Franklin is shown on Treehouse TV and perhaps still on CBC. Check listings for more details or if you live in another country, as the show airs elsewhere as well. On March 15, 2004, Noggin premiered the movie Franklin and the Green Knight on U.S. television. They then aired the fifth season of the program, which previously had aired only on Canada's Family Channel and more recently in other foreign markets. Airdates listed in the guide for the first four seasons reflect Nickelodeon airdates, airdates listed for the fifth season reflect Noggin airdates, although these episodes originally premiered several years earlier on Canada's Family Channel. Franklin's sixth season has aired on Treehouse TV and then repeated on the CBC. Special thanks to Jaden2 - her help has been invaluable in getting information on the sixth season up. For those in the United States, some episodes of the sixth season are now airing in repeats. The film Franklin and the Turtle Lake Treasure is also now available on DVD.moreless

    "I am the wild blue yonder. The front line in a never-ending battle between good... and not-so good. Together, with my stalwart sidekick, Arthur, and the magnanimous help of some other folks I know, we form the yin to villainy's malevolent yang. Destiny has chosen us. Wicked men! You face...The Tick!" The life of a superhero is not easy. There are not enough dangers. However, someone must fight evil and protect good. The few who face this challenge have to leave behind comfort, security and a little sanity. Jumping from roof to roof in one single jump, the mysterious blue justice defender The Tick (Patrick Warburton) patrols The City, and his limited knowledge of human life doesn't interfere with his desire to protect society. The frustrated and well-behaved accountant known as Arthur (David Burke) left his job to join The Tick as The Moth, and now they're a crime-fighting duo. Arthur has always secretly wished being a superhero. Well, not so secretly, since he used his moth outfit (which looks more like a bunny) to work. On this fight against injustice, The Tick also counts on Batmanuel (Nestor Carbonell), a Latino superhero who never promotes himself without a worthy cause. His kryptonite is Captain Liberty (Liz Vassey), the government's number one weapon on the battle against supervillains. The Tick is based on the 'cult' comic character created by Ben Edlund. There was an animated version a few years ago. Check it out here. Originally planned as a 2000-2001 midseason replacement after The Simpsons on Sunday nights, and apparently never thought of as anything more than strike filler for a writer's strike which never happened, FOX toppers Sandy Grushow and Gail Berman changed their minds, keeping Malcolm in the Middle in the slot for another year and pushing The Tick back to fall. When The Tick finally went on the air, it was dumped on Thursdays. They didn't promote it very much, and needless to say, it didn't last very long.moreless

The first series is Chaotic Century. The first part take place during the war between the two greatest nations on Zi: the Empire and the Republic. Into this chaos enters three different yet connected lives: Van Flyheight, a young Republican who stumbles upon some ancient ruins; Zeek, an Organoid in the ruins who has the capacity to revive and mazimize the potential of Zoids; and Fiona, an ancient Zoidian awakened from her sleep and who now accompanies Van on his journey into destiny. With the help of the kooky Dr. D, the mercenary Irvine, and the independent Moonbay among others, Van inadvertently finds himself on a course to stop the war before it takes a disastrous turn. "Foolish Ambtions should not be given the right to rule the Glorious Guylos Empire" according to Prime Minster Homalef. Prozan wants to get rid of the current Emperor, Rudolph. An eight year old boy, who is destined to be King after his grandfather passed away. He meets up with Van and the gang, who guarantees to protect him and bring him back to Guygalos. With the ancient power of the Deathsaur backing Prozan, and with his flunkie, Raven and Shadow it seems that Prozan will suceed. The following series, Guardian Force takes place several years after the peaceful resolution of the war. In order to help prevent future wars, a Guardian Force is jointly established by the Empire and the Republic. Its mission is to seek out volatile groups and contain them before they can cause more chaos. Because of their influence in the war, Van, Zeek, and Fiona are among the Guardian Force's key members. It is duirng this period that more of the Zoidian secret is revealed as the true battle for the of planet Zi begins! Hiltz, as did Prozan earlier, Hiltz has managed to resurrect the ancient power of the Death Stinger. A power such that exceeds the Deathsaur! The Guardian Force era was aired under the title of Chaotic Century in the US. The Chaotic Century of planet Zi has long since passed into the pages of history. The Zoids that were once instruments of war and destruction now find a place in a new order and a new sport: organized Zoid combat. In essence, a New Century Zero has begun. Originally an unofficial sport, the realm of ruthless groups looking for power and control, that all changed with the establishment of the Zoid Battle Commission, which codified the rules of combat, established official leagues and events, and provided a means of enforcing the rules. Zoid battle thus emerged into the mainstream. Teams of Zoid pilots battle each other to become the top dog in the leagues, and the Blitz Team is preparing to rise to the challenge with the help of a pair of newcomers: Bit Cloud and the unpredictable Zoid Liger Zero. In this new world of organized mech combat, there still dwell elements of chaos, none more dangerous as the Backdraft Group, a rogue Zoids organization out for personal gains and power. Between this and the remaining teams in the league, Blitz Team has its work cut out, but if Bit Cloud is any indication, they're not afraid. Years later, the Zoids battles have shifted scenes to the coliseum. There is something new about this year's Zoids battles. It seems that many Zoids can fuse together for enhanced power and speed. Can RD and his Mach Storm Team successfully compete against these new Zoids Fuzors? Will they unlock the secrets to fusing for their Zoids before it is too late? There's also a new organization lurking in the shadows of Blue City, can RD win battles against the powerful enemy Zoids AND prevent this dark scheme? In the newest saga, 1000 years have passed. Natural disasters have devastated planet Zi, killing off almost all life. Humans have gradually re-established civilization, salvaging ancient Zoids through diving and mining efforts. In a village whose most previous item is a giant sword which they worship as a holy symbol. A teenage boy discovers an ancient Liger-type Zoid while on a deep water salvage operation. Suddenly the village is attacked by skeletal Bio-Zoids intent on stealing a powerful generator located in the village. Our teenage hero awakens the Liger and discovers that the town's sacred sword is the Liger's weapon, together they fight off the mysterious Bio-Zoids. At least for now, and thus begins the Zoids Genesis. Will they be able to help the civilization survive?moreless
