  • Wow WB wasn't such a crappy channel this show could have done a whole hell of a lot better.

    Wow WB wasn't such a crappy channel this show could have done a whole hell of a lot better.

    If you haven't seen it its about 2 brothers Andy and Kevin French's life in the city. There totally opposites, Kevin is a neardy computer geek and Andy is a fun cartoon artist. Andy will do things like party kevin will wake up early to get his brand new video game. This show is just such a good stab at making fun of pop culture. Its fun and entertaining. It wasn't on that long but the episodes that were made are great. Right now im just wishing they would put it on DVD so i could get a copy of it, it doesn't get rerun on tv that much.
  • The WB has to bring it back or [adult swim] need to make new episodes.

    This was a great show like the classic show The Odd Couple. Andy and Kevin French are two brother who live together and don't always get along because of there differences. Kevin's the Geek that loves his PC, school, Andy is the too cool for school guy that has dead end job, and doesn't care about anything.
  • Bring Mission Hill and Oblongs back.

    Great show... i think it comes on on TNT or TBS.

    I dont know why they dont get some new episodes.
    I downloaded a couple of the episodes and i watch them on my PSP all the time.

    It was funny, had great characters, and is much better than some other shows on (i.e. Simpsons, King of the Hill, and Futurama) Thats just my opinion.

    Bring Mission Hill and Oblongs back.
  • This Show is the Bomb

    This show is one of the most original and funnest shows ever. It had potential, but it was on the WB so it didn't stand a chance.Even if WB ordered 5 more episodes it barely could find time for the ones it was suposed to show. It only lasted a few episodes but it was one of the best to me.
  • Thanks WB for ruining another show with potential.

    I barley watched the WB except for this show and thank good old WB decided to can this show instead of giving it a chance. it only show a few damn episodes out of the thirteen it was suposed to. So Adult Swim bought the rights and I was hoping that they produce the unproduced episodes. But at least we got to see the remaining episodes meant to air.
  • It's like real life.. but not.. and funny!

    A long time ago, on a local cartoon channel called "teletoon" I saw this show, called Mission Hill. It was about a \"hip\" artist named Andy French who lives in a nice little neighborhood called Mission Hill. But things all start to go arwy after Andy\'s little brother Kevin is sent to live with him. Hilarity ensues, as Kevin gets drunk for the first time, Andy falls in love with one of Kevin\'s nerdy friends sisters. And all other wacky happenings. This duo together with fellow loft mates, Posey and Jim, make for an essential show for cartoon fans. It\'s really a shame that it was cancelled after only one season, oh well. It was worth it while it lasted.
  • Bring It Back

    I found this show very hysterical and also one of my personal favorites. I am very disapointed with the number of episodes there is. Mission Hill had lots of potential and more episodes should be made. In my opinion this is one of the best shows there is at the moment.
  • They should kick Smallvile and 7th Heaven off and bring back Baby Blues, Oblongs, and the misunderstood Mission Hill( or on [adult swim] Inuasha, FLCL, and Samouri Champloo ).

    This is a show about a lazy 21-year old who lives with his two room mates in the Mission Hill neighborhood. Then his parents move away to Colorado and then his brother, Kevin, lives with Andy. It all adds up to a great show that WB cancelled to soon because WBs a channel with the boss as A BIG FU*KER!
  • Mission hill easily captured not only the spirit of the times when it aired at the end of the last millenium, but captured the feeling of change and freedom that young adults at that time were feeling as well.

    Mission Hill is the story of Kevin French moving in with his older brother Andy in the cosmopolis of Mission Hill. Andy rents out an apartment with his best friend Jim Kubiack and new-age guru Posey Tyler, and their are a lot of quirky (but fun) neighbors that also live in the building.

    Andy is the classic mid-20s slacker, working at a dead-end job that he hates, and hanging out with his friends just to have fun. He is at a crossroads in his life; he is not sure where he's going, but he doesn't care as long as he's happy. What he really wants to be, though, is a cartoonist. And that's what makes this show so special, the revelation that no one on the show knows what's in the future for them, but choosing to take life as it comes just the same.

    Another important aspect to the show is its diversity. Kevin French is a little freaked out coming from the suburbs to Mission Hill, because everything and everybody is just so different than what he's used to. He doesn't fit in well with what others very well, and he quickly realizes that everyone around them has similar problems.

    Mission Hill is a great show, that captured the soul of the turn of the millenium, a show that tells people to be true to themselves and their own ideas about how to live. It's a shame that it was cancelled before more people got a chance to see it.
  • Only show that was funny, or the best, on The WB

    The only show that was ever, and I mean ever,good on the WB, better than Charmed, 7th Heaven,Dwason Creek, etc., etc. And dont think that it was cancelled just becuase of ratings or whatever, but mainly because of the mother#@&%ing FCC, see what I mean!! Summary- Buy the Complete 1st season
  • A great show

    The WB had something great when the got Mission Hill. It's a shame they cancelled it. It was a very funy sow with Kevin moving into his older brother Andys apartment for his final years of school. Andy also has some messed up roommates who keep the show all together. This is a great show that will keep you laughing for 30 minutes staight.
  • Why was this cancled, I don\'t know.

    This was funny, it should have stayed on the air. Not be pulled off, before it could make more episodes. But thank you adult swim, they show the reruns every now and then. So it is not gone all the way, but I would like to have seen new episodes of Mission hill.
  • A great show with unique characters.

    All of the characters on Mission Hill had a special vibe. Sometimes you could stop and relate to what they were talking about or just laugh at what they said. Andy and Kevin were brothers who didn't always see eye to eye, but deep down they loved each other. Jim would work, but he also had the attitude to slack off and just say forget it. I'm not going to do it. Posey, to me, was a cross between a modern day hippy and a naturalist. She seemed so quiet and kept to herself, but I could tell she could speak out if she wanted to. Wally and Gus... I loved them. And it wasn't the fact that they were a gay couple. Okay... it's part of the reason, but they seemed so opposite. Wally seemed sort of timid, while Gus spoke his mind. Wally was sort of smart while Gus seemed to be a little slow. Either way, I guess the old saying goes, "Opposites attract." Mission Hill is by far one of my favorite shows to watch at night and even though it's been canceled, people still get a kick out of seeing so many characters who are just trying to make it through the day.
  • Mission Hill revolves around Andy French, a 24-year-old charmingly lazy guy, and his nerdy teenage brother Kevin who moves into Andy's big city loft.

    The first time I saw this show was in 2000. Lately I have been tuning into adultswim and have been watching Mission Hill on adultswim on weekdays. I think it great that adultswim is showing mission hill. It is surely a classic. I wonder why WV doesnt bring it back. I think it would be a top chart hit. They bring back basic animation with dotted lines and sometimes lightbulbs that appear above their heads when they have an idea. They do bring other shows to the show. Like the episode when the realworld comes to mission hill. Bring Mission Hill back!
  • A great animated comedy that never had the time to blossom into something so much more.

    A little known show on the WB (before it started pumping out nothing but garbage) gained a niche audience. Although as much good shows do, it was cancelled after 13 episodes (People were too busy watching Touched by and Angel and Friends). Although late night block Adult Swim brought the show back and let it gain new fans and please the old ones.

    The show isn\'t any were near revolutionary it isn\'t a leap in a new direction but it isn\'t a fall. The show does everything it needs to do and that is making a good, beyond average show. The real highlight is the actual art style, everything is so flamboyant and colorful with a unique look.

    Don\'t expect a show that will blow your mind, but expect one that will dull it. Boasting a great style and humor that easily rivals the Simpsons. The only thing it did lack was people watching it.

    Maybe if DVD sales would sky rocket, the show might be renewed on Adult Swim. Although that doesn\'t seem to just a thought of pure fantasy.
  • Who ever thought if cancelling this show? It was AWESOME!!!!!!!!

    Mission Hill, originally debuted on the WB, then it got switched over to Adult Swim reruns. I only just got into this show, but who would think of pulling this show off the air?

    Mission Hill stars Andy French and Kevin French, two brothers who live in an apartment in the big city with some friends. First off, this show is hilarious. The humor is placed into real life situations which makes this show laid-back and fun. Getting past the funny stuff, this show does have morals. The humor reflects on real life, just like I said. Mission Hill makes something as trivial as being unemployed at the age of 24, or Sarah Michelle Gellar spilling coffee on your privates funny. There isn\'t really anything bad that is noticable in the show.

    A great show, I think anybody could get into this fast. 9.6/10
  • Good show that deserved more episodes.

    Yes it was a good show, aside from the views and things the show pushed I could care less about.
    The color palette may have seemed odd at first, but it matched finally with the characters, who were quite developed in the few short episodes. It really got kicking rght away with fun exciting adventures. I don't like the neighbors in this show since they are married and of the same gender, and I disagree with that. The city itself seems very New York/San Fran view like. It's a good show and should have had more episodes. Animation is good too for the type of style they have.
  • I like it, it's funny!

    This show is my new best friend. It is funny. I think Scott Menville did a great job on Kevin's voice. Scott Menville is very talented and is in another show that I absolutley love. This show is great, and I think it should have never ended. I just started watching it because I was waiting for Family Guy to come on so I decided to stick to the channel, and then the show (Mission Hill) became my new best friend. I love it and I look forward to watching it every night. It is a great, funny show! ! !
  • Just passed by it one night.

    I was flipping over the channels one night when I stumbled over this and I saw it was Adult swim (and honestly other then Futurama and Family Guy they play some weird stuff) so I decided to get a crack out of it and watch it. And to my surprise (and im sure to alot of peoples surprise to) I really liked it. This is a fresh show new and genuine. It may get a little weird but its still pretty good.
  • Splended wih great stories.

    This show is relly good It deserves more episodes and it hardly has any but all thoose that are there are very entertaining and I can\'t seem to stop.

    My favorite one is the one when the world has a crisis and everyone is freak\'in out execpt the famouse people.
    It\'s about a boy and his brother tring to make money past their pay day to I dono LIVE and while that there is their freinds and all ofe them get stuk in original problems even though there were minor flaws it was a very goo show to wacth.
  • Yet another show ended too soon.

    Adult Swim has found another diamond in the rough. The crazy adventures of the French brothers are absolutely hilarious. I only wish that the show was given enough time to properly develop the characters and expand their surroundings. I really liked the chemistry between Andy and Kevin, while the laid back attitude of Jim reminded me of myself. No matter how off the wall the story became, the show was able to maintain its sense of reality and usually some sort of message was being sent. If this show was given a better chance to grow it quickly would have become one of the better animated shows on television. Adult Swim saved Family Guy, but unfortunately, I think it is too late to save this gem.
  • Mission Hill is probably one of the best shows within the last 10 years or so! Unfortunately, they took it off. Why do the network executives always take the good stuff off? Why?

    I love Mission Hill. I try to catch it on TBS in the wee hours of the morning. I watch it more and more and realize...why couldn't they make more episodes? This show is so freaking awesome!

    Unlike much of the animated crap today, its drawing style is decent and detailed and not a gross-out. It doesn't rely on cheap jokes all the time and is actually quite funny.

    Please network executives...please...bring this show back! It's too good to be cancelled! It's one of the best shows left on re-runs that had great potential! Please come back Mission Hill!

    Ahem...okay, I'm done now. But yeah, anyway, great show.
  • Great show, Watched it when it first came on.

    I was so Psyched when Adult Swim started to play reruns of this show. I watched it with a friend of mine when it first showed up on the WB. It was an instant favorite of mine.

    The characters were all great.

    Andy was so incredibly lazy. He was so laid back and cool. The guy that obviously has not grown up and realized that he is not in college and any more and he needs to do something.

    Kevin was so innocent. He was sheltered, by his own choice for the most part. It caused some of the funniest moments on the show. He got to deal with alcohol, sex, and cheating in school. He was such a nerd with his games he made very funny moments.

    Posey seemed like a hippy but then you realized that she wasn't at points like fixing a pimp before kicking him off her roof, or getting lots of money for her home grown vegetables.

    stogie was great. Who doesn't like an alcoholic dog?

    Jim was my favorite because of his slow talking, and just ultimate coolness.

    Gus and Wally were hilarious, great side characters. It's the first time I can remember gay characters on a show I was watching. And that was the great part they were just a couple not really any different than others which was a very forward looking thing.

    great show, that was underappreciated and died before it's time in my opinion.
  • Why did they take this off?!!?!?

    This show was one of the better cartoons! I really don’t understand why they would take it off! The show was funny and corny. The relationship between the two brothers was hilarious. I think because the show was so weird that you had to get use to it to enjoy it. And people today don’t have time. lol. But it’s true. The show was also really adult at sometimes. A little too mature. But it’s called an adult cartoon for a reason. I know it was on Adult Swim for a while. Maybe it just couldn’t keep up with Futurama and Family Guy. Also the story lines started to get a little average. But I thought that it was jazzed up from the funky animation and characters. But I was wrong obviously. Anyway it was a good show and they should bring it back.
  • A brilliant show.

    This was created by former executive producers of the Simpsons Bill Oakley & Josh Weinstein, and is pure brillaince, one of the best series ever & and had great stories it deserved about 8 years! I loved it and thought that Adult Swim should have ran it for a long time and properly finished the incomplete shows, I urge you to buy the dvd for hours of laughs!
  • "Mission Hill" revolves around 24 year old Andy French, a slacker and aspiring cartoonist. Resposiblity comes knocking at the door of his loft apartment with his roomates, Jim and Posey, when Andy's nerdy brother Kevin comes to live with him.

    "Mission Hill" is an amazing series. It has hilarious, clever humor, relateable characters in relatable situations. It is ashamed it was cancelled. It was at the wrong place at the wrong time. "Mission Hill" is without the doubt the most original, clever, funny and underated cartoon I've ever seen. It has so much potential, and for that it deserves a second chance. I can easily see it competing with The Simpsons, Family Guy and other popular cartoons.

    Definetly ahead of its time. I really wish this show would come back. I 100% would recomend you to watch this series, despite it has only 13 episodes. When you finish watching the complete series, it is guarenteed you are going to want more new episodes.

    If you want "Mission Hill" to come out of cancellation, please visit the Save Mission Hill Forums to help out.

  • Andy French`s geeky brother moves in his Mission Hill loft and causes havoc.

    This show was actuall quite good . This was the only show good on at the time. It was originaly on the WB. It was also on [adult swim]. Now it can be seen on at late times on TBS and on Saturdays at 2:30 A.M. Some of the characters included Andy and Kevin French,Posey,and Jim. And were vocied by some familer faces. Andy was voiced by Wallace Langham {Hodes on CSI},and Kevin was vocied by Scott Menville {Robin on Teen Titans,and Red Herring on A Pup Named Scooby-Doo.Posey was vocied by Vicki Lewis. Bottom-line this show was good and it should be brought back.
  • This was a really awesome cartoon that was cancelled cause it received low ratings as did The Oblongs.

    It's about two brother's named Andy and Kevin who live together and have no home so together they do what they like to do. I loved watching this show it was really funny and interisting it even had reruns on Adult Swim as did The Oblongs but neither are on air right now which stinks:(. It could have had a new season but because of low ratings it didn't survive a season, it could have been on fox where it would have done better as could have The Oblongs but nope they got cancelled due to low ratings I really would pray to god and wish this show would have a new season.
  • A great show that got canceled way before its time.

    This is one of the many shows that I feel got canceled before it needed to be. This is a good adult themed cartoon that I really connected to. Andy reminds me of me and Kevin is exactly like my brother so it was pretty easy to follow. It had alot of interesting characters in it. Andy was of course mine. Recently adult swim started airing mission hill on Sundays so I am pretty happy about that. But if I had the choice to bring back any show I wanted it would be this one. Its a great show that needs to be brought back.
  • For a 2 AM show, I guess it works.

    This show is really nothing special. The only reason I watch it is because I'm an insomniac who needs something to do at 2 in the morning. I do laugh a few times at each episode, but I don't crack up or anything like that. I can understand why it didn't last long, being on the WB. Also, animated comedies like The Simpsons, King of the Hill, and South Park were dominating at the time. Now about the show, I feel sorry for Andy. Kevin is such a dork, and it's ridiculous that his parents forced Andy to let Kevin move in. Andy is a grown man, and he just let his parents move Kevin in his apartment. For a 2 AM show, it's pretty good. Otherwise, there are many better animated comedies out there.
