    Welcome to the Time Squad guide at TV.com. Time Squad is one of Cartoon Network's original animated series and is part of the collection known as Cartoon Cartoons. First Telecast: June 8, 2001 Last Telecast: November 26, 2003. We start every episode in a satellite that orbits the earth in the year 100 million. Buff time cop, Buck Tuddrussel; cranky, yet sophisticated robot, the Larry 3000; and 8-year-old orphan boy, Otto Osworth; three of the most unlikely characters to become a trio join together in that satellite to go on whatever mission through history they get, to make sure everything happens the right way, while making it through mishaps on the satellite in between missions. They go though it all: from Eli Whitney's flesh eating robots to the accidental downgrade of Larry, but they're always ready for the sudden blaze of the History Instability Alarm and they'll do anything to "enforce the past to protect the future". Characters Buck Tuddrussel- Tuddrussel is the main time cop of the squad, and not a very good one at that. He's known to not be very bright, and always seems to think that violence is the answer to everything. He often has to be pointed in the right direction by his partner robot, Larry, and his kidnapped (adopted) accomplice, Otto. And he doesn't know anything about history! When he's not on a mission, he enjoys practicing his sharp shooting, reading his laser magazines, and weight lifting. The Larry 3000- Tuddrussel's partner. Larry is the one who operates the ins and outs of the Time Squad satellite and hates every moment of it. He often has to stop Tuddrussel from doing anything stupid, which is often. He'd gladly work for Tuddrussel if he weren't such a barbaric idiot. He was originally designed to assist kings and diplomats, but due to becoming "obsolete" his purpose was reassigned to Time Squad and got stuck with with Tuddrussel. When he's not on a mission, he enjoys golfing, knitting, and any other civilized hobby--you name it! He doesn't know anything about history either! Otto Osworth- An orphaned boy genius who talked Tuddrussel and Larry into abducting him from his abusive orphanage in the 21st century, using the fact that he knew so much about history and could easily talk to people. Otto works hard, and plays hard to work with the Time Squad to fix the one thing he cared about the most while growing up in the orphanage, history! Very clever, and always trying to do what's right, Otto is constantly trying to work out problems for both historical figures and his strange "guardians" have created for themselves. Whenever they get a mission he's always there to tell what the person from history's famous for. He's also there when Tuddrussel and/or Larry do something he knows is wrong! When he's not on a mission, he enjoys playing with what ever toy, game, or puzzle based on famous people or moments in history he can get his hands on.moreless

    Cartoon Network (ended 1996)
    A widely followed TV animation series with fascinating characters, a captivating sci-fi premise, dynamic battle scenes, and a super-high density of information that incorporates Judeo-Christian concepts and psychoanalysis as only a few of the elements that allowed Neon Genesis Evangelion to surpass the realm of all anime that had come before it and made a work worthy of the title "New Century (Neon Genesis)." The show began airing in October 1995 with the planning, original story and production handled by GAINAX, who had previously worked on such shows as Wings of Honneamise and Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water. Hideaki Anno, a representative creator of GAINAX, was at the heart of the production work and his individuality colors every aspect of the show. A manga version by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto began running one month prior to the series premiere and new chapters are still being produced.

    Neon Genesis Evangelion had the ardent support of fans, and its popularity boomed even after it finished its first run in March of 1996. Its influence was not limited to anime fans but also spread to the general populace, and it was even called the third impact, following Space Battleship Yamato and Mobile Suit Gundam. At the height of the Eva boom in 1998, the theatrical Death and Rebirth and The End of Evangelion were released. The theatrical releases were created as a separate version of the climax depicted in the TV series. Four movies retelling the story of Evangelion (without GAINAX) are to follow in the coming years.

    Naota Nanadaba is an ordinary twelve-year-old sixth grader who lives in the city of Mabase and feels that nothing interesting ever happens in his life. That is, until a mysterious woman on a Vespa motorbike, Haruko Haruhara, smashes into him causing him to change in ways he never would have expected. As Naota deals with his life and the awkward circumstances caused by Haruko, his brother's ex-girlfriend Mamimi Samejima, and many others, he soon discovers that his life may be changed forever; though in a town as normal as Mabase, will Naota manage to deal with these bizarre circumstances?

    Fooly Cooly, or FLCL, or Furi Kuri (フリクリ), is a unique series that combines many aspects of animation, an extensive soundtrack and some outstanding writing to make one of the most bizarre and hilarious anime ever created. FLCL is a six episode OVA (original video anime) created by Kazuya Tsurumaki of Gainax and released by Gainax and Production I.G. In 2003, it was licensed and aired on Cartoon network's Adult Swim programming block.

    Character Descriptions: Naota Nandaba (ナンダバ・ナオ太): Naota is a twelve-year-old boy who lives in the town of Mabase. He lives with his father, Kamon, and is often used by his brother's girlfriend, Mamimi. He is the main character in the series and is targeted out by Haruko in the first episode, in which the series deals with him coping with the circumstances going on around him. His name is derived from the Japanese word for "honesty".

    Haruko Haruhara (ハルハラ・ハル子): Haruko is a pink haired woman of unknown origins. Most people know her as "The Vespa Woman" since she is usually always on her yellow Vespa wherever she goes. After she runs over Naota with her Vespa and causes weird things to come out of his head, she decides to stick with his family as a housekeeper so she can keep an eye on him. She becomes more and more complex as the series progresses.

    Mamimi Samejima (サメジマ・マミ実): Mamimi is seventeen years old and is the girlfriend of Naota's older brother, Tasuku, who went to America to play baseball. She usually skips school and heads down under the bridge where she usually smokes and waits for Naota to come along.

    Eri Ninamori (ニナモリ・エリ): Ninamori is in the same as Naota and she was elected the president. She is the daughter of the mayor of Mabase, who is often caught up in scandal, which likely had an affect on her personality. While she may seem to be sophisticated, her father's charm and intelligence has rubbed off on her and she knows how to cheat to get her way. It is also implied that she is somewhat interested in Naota romantically and possibly even sexually.

    Kamon Nandaba (ナンダバ・カモン): Kamon is Naota's father and a freelance writer who more often than not just makes up stories to get people to buy his articles. While he may not always be successful in his endeavors, his store does sell other novelties of the past, such as Crystal Pepsi, which helps finance their household.

    Commander Amarao (アマラオ): Amarao works for the department of Interstellar Immigration as a middle man for negotiations between the government and Medical Mechanica. He has fake eyebrows made of nori which make him look manly and protect him from N.O. Amarao also seems to have had a past relationship with Haruko similar to that of Naota's.

    Canti (カンチ - Kanchi): Canti is a robot that came out of Naota's head. While he doesn't seem to have much use, he is often used by Naota's family to do minuscule and mundane tasks. He has a television for a head and can perform other various tasks as well, though whenever weird things comes out of Naota's head, it's usually Canti, along with Haruko, who do the fighting.moreless

    Welcome to the What a Cartoon! guide at TV.com. Cartoon Network had begun airing classic Hanna-Barbera and Warner Bros. cartoons, but in 1995, they got interested in new animation after Space Ghost Coast to Coast was a hit. Fred Seibert got the idea for a show that would feature new cartoon shorts by young animators. The What a Cartoon! project was made so that Cartoon Network would get new talents and new original series. Some veteran animators would also make cartoons for the show. In 1995, the cartoon show premiered as World Premiere Toons. Space Ghost introduced the audience to it on his show, complete with the debut of Craig McCracken's Meat Fuzzy Lumkins. Every half-hour episode of World Premiere Toons featured three original cartoons. The success of the show caused CN to continue it and make some of the shorts as their own series. The series was known as What a Cartoon!, but the format remained. Of the What a Cartoon! shorts, Dexter's Laboratory in 1996, Johnny Bravo and Cow and Chicken in 1997 had already spun off to their own series. In 1998, the show was retitled The Cartoon Cartoon Show, airing shorts from the past and present as well as episodes of Cartoon Cartoons. The same would later happen to The Powerpuff Girls, Courage the Cowardly Dog and Mike, Lu & Og in 1999. Cartoon Network announced in 2008 that it was making a project called Cartoonstitute in which would have worked in a way similar to the What A Cartoon! Show and was then cancelled.moreless

Sheep faces problems like finding a nice apartment, balancing work and social life, and avoiding a rich socialite who pummels him with a stainless-steel wig.

    Characters

    SHEEP- Just your average sheep trying to make an honest living in The Big City while avoiding being captured by the secret military organization for a sheep powered ray gun. And finding ways to see his beloved Swanky the poodle while avoiding the steel pounding of Lady Richington's Steel wig.

    General Specific- The leader of the Secret Military Organization. He is your average General assigned to capturing sheep to power the sheep powered ray gun. Although he is usually outsmarted by sheep he never gets discouraged.

    Private Public- Private Public is the right hand man at the SMO. Even though he is lightyears smarter then General Specific he is happy to take the orders rather than give them.

    Angry Scientist- The Brains behind the SMO but is usually to busy correcting General Specific for calling him a Mad Scientist to be of much help and what he lacks in patience he makes up for in the hump on his back.

    Narator- The unseen narrator...well sorta. He is the introducer and is usually upset at the writing of the episode but has an over appreciation for the beloved sheep.moreless

    Cartoon Network (ended 2000)
    JBVO ("your all-request cartoon show", as it was billed) now exists as little more than an interesting footnote in television history; as the previous series description stated, "No one really remembers this show." A short-lived, Sunday-airing series produced for Cartoon Network, JBVO sat cartoon star Johnny Bravo behind a desk in a TV studio (ala Space Ghost) from which he took, then fulfilled, children's requests for cartoons, drawing from a library of classic Hanna Barbarra and Warner Brothers shorts (such as those featuring Bugs Bunny and Huckleberry Hound), as well as the network's contemporary hits (The Powerpuff Girls, etc.)

    JBVO was meant to be ground-breaking, in part due to its use of Kaydara, Inc's FiLMBOX software (a beta copy, in fact, as the package didn't ship 'til well after series' premiere). FiLMBOX allowed an operator to string together 2-D animated sequences (produced by Funny Garbage) in real-time, keying movements off Jeff Bennett's live conversations with callers. Further, real-time lip-sync was automated by FiLMBOX's Voice Reality, and use of live backgrounds reportedly allowed the series' producer to appear on set (though I don't recall him being anything more than an off-stage voice).

    Unfortunately, I don't know that many viewers were aware of the broadcasts' technical achievements. I, for one, assumed the phone conversations had been pre-recorded over the week between shows, the result of follow-up calls to submissions sent via Cartoon Network's website and snail mail, and that animation sequences had been pieced together through more traditional methods afterward. Indeed, as I recall, at least some such conversations began with Johnny calling the child, which only reinforced (and may have given birth to) that perception.moreless

In this series they are competing from inside of an abandoned film studio, as as such, all their challenges are movie themed. The show was created and produced by Fresh TV.

Before airing viewers were asked to vote online for who they thought should win and whichever character got the most votes was the one whose ending eventually aired on television.moreless
