    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.

    The WB (ended 2005)
    If "greatness is thrust upon us," as Winston Churchill once said, then it stands to reason that those who are destined for greatness are rarely aware of it. Take Jack (newcomer Matthew Long) and Bobby McCallister (Logan Lerman, The Butterfly Effect) for example: two bright young brothers growing up under the watchful eye of their eccentric single mother Grace McCallister (Christine Lahti, Chicago Hope). Grace's personality is a force of nature destined to shape both of these young men's lives and secure one a place in the history books - as President of the United States. Set in the fictional town of Hart, Missouri in the present day, the series details the relationship between these brothers and the people who shape their values and personalities, especially their mother. A brilliant college professor with an unconventional parenting style, Grace is struggling to let one son go and understand the other. Although she has no way of knowing she is raising a future president, it would not surprise her to know that her boys are destined for greatness. Jack is the big brother everyone wishes they had. A natural hero and a born leader, he seems to have everything going for him. He's the perfect role model for Bobby, who, with a big heart and a quick intellect, is nonetheless an undeniable social misfit. Bobby is caught between the rival forces of his mother and his brother, and it's impossible to please them both. The arrival of a new college president and his beautiful daughter impacts the lives of all three McCallisters. In Peter Benedict (John Slattery, Mona Lisa Smile) Grace has met not only her new boss, but an intellectual equal. Peter is a brilliant businessman with a questionable character, and Grace finds herself both attracted and repelled by him. Peter's teenage daughter Courtney (newcomer Jessica Paré) soon strikes up a friendship with Jack and forms a special bond with Bobby. The brothers eventually learn that the brave front Courtney presents to the world hides a painful family secret. Another pivotal figure in Jack and Bobby's childhood is Jack's best friend Marcus Ride (Edwin Hodge, The Alamo). Son of the owner of J.R., a popular neighborhood gathering spot, Marcus is close to Jack, but their relationship is also highly competitive. Over time, their friendship will be tested repeatedly. Exploring the idea that what happens today in the life of one child could impact the future of the entire world, upcoming episodes will focus on the events that mold Jack and Bobby's characters and shape their values. While the McCallister's family life in the present day is explored, the audience will also see glimpses of what America may be like 40 or 50 years from now. What kind of President will it take to lead the country in 2040? What kind of world will this man inherit? How will Jack and Bobby McCallister make the journey from Hart, Missouri to Washington D.C. and what will their lives mean to every American? In an era when political parties are more divided than ever, Jack and Bobby offers a look at a leader who truly unifies. His unlimited hope and optimism earns President McCallister the nickname "The Great Believer." Although the McCallister administration is not without controversy and even scandal, the underlying message is that one individual can still make a difference in the world. Each episode will be themed around some aspect of character. What makes someone inspiring? How valuable is faith or honesty? Is greatness born in a person or is it learned? The story of Jack and Bobby McCallister is the origin tale of a great leader. With flash-forward interviews of White House staffers and the First Lady, Jack and Bobby is a snapshot of a young man being molded to beat the odds and become this mid-century's greatest Presidential leader.

In 'Billion Dollar Limited', Superman rushes to save Lois and a speeding train from derailing, along with the car carrying explosives. In 'Showdown', Superman tries to clear his name when someone looking like him starts robbing banks and jewelry stores. From criminals out to capture Lois to a revived mummy, Superman utilizes his powers to save the day as he fights for truth, justice, and the American way. The first short of the series, 'The Mad Scientist', was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Short Subject: Cartoons.

It was created and produced by Hal Roach throughout the 1920s and 30s, and is better known today as "The Little Rascals." It features the adventures of a lovable gang of children, whose mischief and frivolities have brought laughter to America and the world for generations. Among the most famous of the children are Spanky (George McFarland), Alfalfa (Carl Switzer), and Buckwheat (Billie Thomas).

More than 200 shorts and one feature film, "General Spanky," were produced, and they have been re-run on television continuously for decades. Anyone with an interest in classic film or family friendly comedies will find something to like about Our Gang.moreless

    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

    The WB (ended 2000)
    Histeria was the short-lived animated show on Kids' WB! The show was a cartoon look at one of the most boring subjects of all: History. This show takes that boring subject and molds it into entertainment while still teaching the viewers something. This show was hilarious with its off-the-wall and slapstick comedy takes on the Civil War, the American Revolution, and many many more. Never before has President Washington been in such a compromising position as when the Histeria gang comes along! Histeria! had 52 episodes. Though this show lived a short but enjoyable run, it was canceled due to low ratings, which were more or less caused by hype in the new show Pokémon which was a much cheaper show to produce and had a much bigger following. Characters Father Time - Based on the mythological figure, he is pretty much the ringleader of the cast, as he is usually introducing the sketches. He is very very old and doesn't like to be reminded of it. Big Fat Baby - A baby with a bad habit of stinking up the place. The kids frequently ask historical celebrities to change Big Fat Baby's diaper, saying that the last time he had a clean diaper was before something that happened a long time ago. He is a parody of Baby New Year, because the sketches always begin with a shot of him wearing a ribbon dictating whatever year it takes place in. Miss Information - Usually shown leading three unnamed adults and two kids around, this ditzy tour guide believes the whole world is a museum she works for and often gets her facts wrong. World's Oldest Woman - An old lady who apparently pre-dated everything and tries to date every man she meets Loud Kiddington - The leader of the Kid Chorus, so named for his constant shouting. He often reenacts loud moments in history. Fetch - Loud's talking dog who loves chasing after his tennis ball. He bares an interesting resemblance to Hunter from Road Rovers. Charity Bazaar - A clinically depressed blonde girl ("I'm not happy") who is willing to take a stand for animal rights. Froggo - The Kid Chorus' frog-voiced inventor, who often borrows things to use for his inventions. Aka Pella - A sassy African-American girl. Pepper Mills - An obsessive autograph hound who is always mistaking historical figures for pop cultural celebrities. Toast - Pepper's absent-minded boyfriend who is completely sunburnt and hosts a talk show titled Ask Me If I Care. Cho-Cho - A Chinese girl who likes to persuade people into buying whatever it is she's selling them, ranging from candy to magazine subscriptions, and won't stop badgering them until they agree to her demands. Lucky Bob - Cho-Cho's mentally handicapped assistant (and possible boyfriend), who frequently quotes Ed McMahon's catchphrases. Pule Houser - An overweight kid who is always taking damage or whining about something. Susanna Susquahanna - A Native American girl with a big gap between her front teeth, which gives a humongous lisp that makes it difficult for her to say even her own name correctly. Bill Straitman - A no-nonsense interviewer. Mr. Smartypants - A genius who is incredibly shy and hides his face in his pants. Chit Chatterson - A crazy salesman of some sort. Lydia Karaoke - A network censor for The WB who tries to make sure the show doesn't overstep the network boundaries. Sammy Melman - A smarmy network executive.

    Just Legal” is a fast-paced procedural drama with humor starring Jay Baruchel (‘Undeclared," ‘Million Dollar Baby”) and Don Johnson (“Miami Vice, ” “Nash Bridges”) as lawyers who save their clients, and in the process, save themselves. David “Skip” Ross (Baruchel), 19, a brilliant legal prodigy, dreams of becoming a great trial lawyer. When he can't land a job at a prestigious L.A. firm because he's too young, Skip ends up working for Grant Cooper (Johnson). Once a great lawyer, now burnt-out by the realities of life, Cooper is barely scraping by in his beachfront law office. Together, Skip and Cooper become defenders of the accused and crusaders for the unjustly wronged. Their cases vary from stories ripped from today's headlines to clever mysteries with procedural twists.

    Skip's middle-class parents, Deborah (Veanne Cox, “Erin Brockovich”) and Lenny Ross (Raphael Sbarge, “The Guardian”), and his under-achieving younger brother Tom (newcomer Michael Mitchell), are all extremely proud of Skip's accomplishments, but are also concerned for his well-being, especially when his first case involves proving the innocence of a young woman named Paradise (Peyton List, “The Greatest Game Ever Played”) who has been falsely accused of a gang-related murder. Always the underdogs, forced to do the gritty work of finding clues and tracking down witnesses in the beautiful, but often dangerous world of Southern California, Cooper teaches Skip to be a lawyer and a man, while Skip renews Cooper's faith in the law and himself.
