    The WB (ended 2000)
    "Superman" was an animated series that premiered on September 6, 1996. Created to follow the success of "Batman: The Animated Series," and based on the popular Superman comics created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the cartoon series focused on the adventures of Superman, an incredibly powerful crime fighter from the planet Krypton, who defends Metropolis from a variety of supercriminals that include Lex Luthor, Brainiac, Metallo, The Parasite, Livewire, The Toyman, Mr. Mxyzptlk, Bizarro, Darkseid, Lobo, Jax-Ur, and Mala. Superman's secret identity is that of Clark Kent, a mild-mannered reporter for the newspaper "The Daily Planet". There he worked with fellow reporter Lois Lane and photographer Jimmy Olsen.

    The series opened with an hour and a half long special that featured the exploits of Superman's Kryptonian father, Jor-El, who was attempting to save their planet from a world-wide catastrophe which the planet's artificial intelligence system, Brainiac, was trying to cover up, and continued through Superman's first public appearance in Metropolis. In later seasons, the show featured guest appearances by a variety of other famous comic book heroes including Supergirl, Batman, Robin, The Green Lantern, The Flash, Aquaman, Dr. Fate, Steel, and The New Gods. In 1997, episodes of "Superman" were broadcast alongside episodes of "The New Batman Adventures" and reruns of "Batman: the Animated Series" under the title "The New Batman/Superman Adventures".moreless

    The WB (ended 1997)
    Dexter Douglas is a mild-mannered teenager who, while logged onto the Internet one Christmas, is thrust into a horrible crash on the information superhighway and transformed into an electrifying superhero. He's average, predictable, the middle of the bell curve and the center of the silent majority, which most consider completely dull and boring; the type of person who just blends into the crowd. However, all this changes when he turns into the Freakazoid, a lightening haired superhero who wears red underwear and uses his new abilities to fight evil and do battle with villains such as the Lobe. That is, unless Cosgrove, his best friend and chief of police, can suggest something better to do. With his many trusted sidekicks, his fabulous Freakalair and his girlfriend Steph by his side, he's ready to save the day; that is, unless there's something better on TV. Character Descriptions Freakazoid is the hero of our show, the crazy alter-ego of Dexter Douglas. He draws his amazing powers of super speed and strength from cyberspace, which he obtained after an accident involving a Pinnacle Computer Chip. While he does his best to save the day, he's considered a lunatic and often does the unexpected. Dexter Douglas is the teenage geek alter-ego of Freakazoid, he's quiet, mild mannered and a bit of a nerd; though he does keep his other identity a secret. However, when evil rears its ugly head, Dexter will "Freak Out" to become the mighty Freakazoid. Cosgrove is the chief of police and Freakazoid's best friend. He's always on the hand with good advice for our hero and he typically has a neat idea about how to spend the afternoon. While he's not always useful, he usually does come along to bust the bad guys when Freakazoid managed to defeat the villains. Steph is both Dexter and Freakazoid's love interest; she's considered an attractive character but is romantically interested in Freakazoid, which makes Dexter upset; though it does permit her to be around to help Freakazoid save the day at times. The Lobe is Freakazoid's archenemy; he's always coming up with diabolical schemes that will help him take over the world, though despite his huge brain, he's always running into Freakazoid's opposition at every turn. The Huntsman, formally Marty Feeb, is a super strong, super fast hero who lives in the forest, but will run to the city to fight crime in a jiffy whenever 'The Horn of Urgency' is sounded. Provided it isn't a slow crime day, that is. Lord Bravery is an up and coming British super hero trying to make his name. Things just never seem to go right for him though.

    The WB (ended 2000)
    Meet Andy French, a 24-year-old captivatingly lazy guy. Together with his nerdy teenage brother Kevin, he lives in a big city loft. However, these two new roommates couldn't be more polar opposite: Andy can never seem to settle on a particular job or girlfriend, while Kevin never gets anything lower than an A in school nor does he get a girlfriend. "The show takes place in the fictional city of Cosmopolis's equally fictional neighborhood of Mission Hill". It's a diverse place with interesting people living in it. Fellow roommates include Posey Tyler, the capricious girl who hides a secret dark side, and Andy's mellow best friend Jim Kuback who's well-connected to the hip downtown scene and has a luxurious job. Across the hall are Natalie, Carlos and their baby. Carlos is a painter, while Natalie is a professor. Next door are Gus and Wally, a gay couple in their 60s. Picked up in the fall of 1997 by the head of programming at the time Garth Ancier, Mission Hill didn't hit the air until long after he left the network. While that in itself is usually enough to kill a new series, achieving a two share on just its second outing certainly helped finish it off. One wonders what the WB was expecting after slotting it so awkwardly (first a "sneak preview" on Tuesday, then, two weeks later, a time period debut on Friday), but both Ancier's successor, Susanne Daniels, and Castle Rock agreed that having the series kick off a lineup consisting of The Jamie Foxx Show, The Steve Harvey Show and For Your Love was asking too much of it. So it went on hiatus after just two episodes. The WB claimed that they would bring it back in the spring, but when the time rolled around they didn't feel it was worth bringing back in season, nor did they feel it was worth pairing up with another long-delayed animated show they mishandled, Baby Blues. It came as a shock to the producers when the network called them up and said they had 15 weeks open that summer to burn off the 11 leftover episodes. Mission Hill was no longer asked to kick off a lineup consisting of The Jamie Foxx Show, The Steve Harvey Show and For Your Love. Now, it was asked to have a lineup consisting of The Jamie Foxx Show, The Steve Harvey Show and For Your Love kick off it. Four weeks of that and the WB kicked Mission Hill off the lineup once again. Finally in 2001, Cartoon Network bought the rights to the series, and aired it in order and in its entirety from May to August in 2002. The series ended up being 13 episodes, which Adult Swim has run on a number of occasions. The scripts were written for episodes 14-18 and 14-16 made it to animatic, but the show got pulled in production. IN addition, 14-16 almost made it to the Mission Hill DVD, but there were further complications. Broadcast History Sep 1999, Tue 9:00-9:30 Oct 1999, Fri 8:00-8:30 Jun 2000-Jul 2000, Sun 9:30-10:00 Number of episodes that aired on WB: 6 Number of episodes that aired on AS: 13 Number of episodes that made it to the DVD: 13 Number of episodes that made it to the animatic (were animated): 16 Number of episodes planned: 18 Theme song "Italian Leather Sofa" (instrumental) Written by John McCrea Performed by Cake Mission Hill is a Bill Oakley/Josh Weinstein Production, in association with Castle Rock Entertainmentmoreless

    The Bugs 'n' Daffy Show

    The Bugs 'n' Daffy Show

    Follow
    The WB (ended 1997)
    When the 'Kids' WB!' began broadcasting in 1995 it had a assortment of animated programs It seemed logical that the WB should feature the classic Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons for which Warner Brothers' Animation division is famous. Thus, a new package of the classic cartoon shorts was assembled under the title of That's Warner Bros.!. 65 episodes were compiled and aired weekday mornings or afternoons, depending on the wish of individual affiliates. The majority of shorts on That's Warner Bros.! Each half-hour show consisted of three shorts and one "Hip Clip". "Hip Clips" were excerpts of varying length pulled from certain cartoons to fill time. But after one season, the show was updated. Its title was changed to The Bugs N' Daffy Show and given a new, catchy theme song, as Daffy and Bugs sing about the stars of the show. The new song went like this: "My name is Daffy Duck. And boy are you in luck. 'Cause I'm the greatest; I'm the best. You can't help but be impressed. Along with Bugs and all the rest... On the Bugs N' Daffy Show. Curtain up and lights aglow. Places, folks, 'cause here we go. It's the Bugs N' Daffy Show. Starring Daffy Duck! Marvin the Martian, Tweety, and Sylvester... Porky the Pig and Elmer Fudd here too... Foghorn Leghorn, Barnyard Dog... Yosemite Sam and Michigan Frog... Speedy Gonzales runs amok. I'm the star, I'm Daffy Duck! Someone hit the lights. We just love opening nights. Costumes, make-up, props, and sets... Song and dance, and hot duets. No Romeos or Juliets. It's comedy all the way. Time to laugh. So, let's begin. Notify your next of kin. Daffy Duck is starring in the Bugs and Daf... Make 'em laugh! The Bugs N' Daffy Show! Prepare to be blown away!" The format remained the same, except that the cartoons were no longer broadcast with their opening credits. They instead aired with a shot of each short's title card and an instrumental of the Bugs N' Daffy theme playing over it. The order of episodes and shorts remained the same, with one notable exception: the Three Bears cartoon, The Bee-Deviled Bruin, was pulled from shows 24 and 54, presumably for violent content, and replaced by Beanstalk Bunny in show 24 and by What's Up, Doc? in show 54. Like all of the other networks, the WB was no stranger to the practice of cartoon-editing-for-content. Gun gags were gone from cartoons like Rabbit's Feat, Barbary Coast Bunny, and Ballot Box Bunny. Scenes that were considered too violent in other ways were also chopped, like Sylvester being electrified in Lighthouse Mouse and Muzzle Tough. Single lines of dialogue were missing, such as Bugs' reference to Amos and Andy at the end of Lighter Than Hare and Daffy's line, "So round, so firm, so fully packed, so easy on the draw," in Book Review. The show was also known to redirect cartoon shorts by changing the order of scenes. Its version of A Star is Bored was horribly mangled. A second season of The Bugs N' Daffy Show began in September, 1997. The WB Network retained the rights to the same post-1948 titles that it had been telecasting for the previous two years, and added first-run pre-1948 cartoons to compose new episodes. At least one pre-1948 cartoon aired per show. Due to the slightly longer length of the pre-1948 cartoons, the "Hip Clips" no longer appeared in every show. Also, scenes in many of these pre-1948 cartoons were edited for content by the WB censors. The WB dropped The Bugs N' Daffy Show from its regular schedule for the 1998-1999 season. The show did remain on a few WB affilates as a replacement for Tiny Toon Adventures, although The Bugs N' Daffy Show was no longer a regular network series.moreless
