Sailor Moon was over 200 episodes, and actually had an ending. Meaning it was several times as long as any of the other shows we've mentioned.



I thought that show never ended cause i remember reading on wikipedia recently that a ton of episodes were never "westernized" and translated.

I thought the creators of Reboot were trying to bring the series back?

Moonlight is the one show I wished they continued with. It was stupid for them to cancel it.

Journeyman was another good show.

No clue if they were shown in the States, but YTV has shown them up here a few times.

No, it's because good anime licensing companies are often not fast enough for the likes of bad one such as 4Kids.

Seinfeld, the Tick (although it was getting a little stale near the end), Clone High, and the Real Ghostbusters.

And I wouldn't have minded if they'd brought back Quantum Leap. Just for a bit. But the series ending was perfect.

Earthworm Jim and Freakazoid. I can't believe I forgot them!

I had heard that they were working on new stuff for EWJ, but that was nearly a year ago. I mean, I'm irrationally clinging on to that last fragment of hope, but a little more news would help.

And Freakazoid...oh, gone before his time. And and bringing the show back would be tough, because with the passing of Ricardo Montalban, it would be near impossible to bring back Armando "Not a Weenie" Guitierrez.

Mutant League! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutant_League

It was based on bad ass games Mutant League Football and Mutant League Hockey. I loved this cartoon as a kid and the action figures were some of my favorite, Bones always had a home kicking some GI JOE ass as a secret experiment run by COBRA. The video games were equally awesome as the animated series and action figures.

I'd do anything for them to bring back the games in all its bloody and gorey awesomeness.

I never did see the end, how was it?


Memory is fuzzy, but the last episode involved him leaping into himself... sort of. Anyway, you know how at the end of the last episode (and the beginning of the current one), he'd look in the mirror, see who he was playing, and say, "Oh boy"? Anyway, he leapt into a bar, saw who he was in the mirror, and saw that it was himself. He spent the whole episode trying to figure out what he was supposed to do, and then the bartender told him he was between leaps and that his next leaps, that some controlling entity, were going to be harder and that he would leap as himself and not someone else.

Anyway, at the end, he leaps into Al's past to save his marriage (one of them anyway). Then the final text comes up and says that he never makes it home.

I think a lot of fans were a little uptight to learn that he never made it home, but in hindsight, I don't really think there was a better way to end the show.
