Cancelled TV shows you loved... (in Off-topic)
What are your favorite shows that got canceled and want back on the air. Here is my list (so far):
Really anything hosted by Stick Stickly
Rocko's Modern Life
Salute Your Shorts
Ren and Stimpy
Are you afraid of the dark
Pinky and the brain
Doug (before it went to Disney, with the new voice)
Futurama (But i hear rumors it's coming back, like itself and Family Guy have done twice already. Both were cancelled twice but came back)
February 20 2008 11:51 PM EST
Married With Children and Cheers
February 21 2008 12:01 AM EST
That 70's Show
February 21 2008 12:06 AM EST
Dude, you sooo rock for mentioning Doug... I still hum the tune from the opening all the time :P
February 21 2008 12:08 AM EST
Seinfeld- The best show ever. Even re-runs are funnier than almost anything currently on TV
Outer Limits- a Modern day Twilight Zone
I grew up on Stick Stickly! =)
February 21 2008 12:10 AM EST
February 21 2008 12:35 AM EST
Clone High :3.
Space: Above and Beyond
February 21 2008 1:25 AM EST
Futurama - It sort of came back. So far they have made one movie straight to dvd, and it was great you should see it.
Brisco County Junior. Best show ever. EVER
February 21 2008 2:42 AM EST
I fourth Firefly.
February 21 2008 3:19 AM EST
Firefly and Stargate SG-1. I'd also say Babylon 5, but it was only Meant to be as long as it was.
February 21 2008 4:17 AM EST
Oops I forgot SG-1 as well.
Firefly counter: 5
February 21 2008 5:52 AM EST
I'm not sure whether it's really cancelled or not, but I haven't seen new episodes in ages so...
February 21 2008 5:52 AM EST
My own dream return would be Blakes Seven - old British science fiction series from the late 70s- early 80s. Featured a band of misfits travelling around in space. Also featured a fascistic federation ruling the universe. A ship with a big round glowing ball of an engine at it's rear. The crew were thieves, war heroes, smugglers and oh, a telepath/psychic. And it ended with a betrayal, a crashed space ship and several crew members dead.
Might seem a little familiar to Firefly fans......
Oh and IA mentioned Space Above And Beyond. I'd forgotten that show. There's a cliffhanger that needs addressing!
the Original Night Rider
original Transformers Cartoons
GI-Joe - original
Just a few that I can remember - NBC just aired a new Night Rider updated... not sure about the new one yet.
freaks and geeks
I'm sure I have more, but that is all for now
I used to watch the original Sonic the Hedgehog. That was great!
February 21 2008 8:16 AM EST
Hm, Blake's 7 got kinda crazy toward the end, as I recall -- cast seemed to be changing episode to episode! But it was a fun show...
Brisco County Jr. is definitely seconded...
And I will put in a vote for Manhattan, AZ. Short-lived summer run on USA. There will never be a DVD set of it, I don't imagine, and no torrents or VHS rips that I can find anywhere... :\ Truly a "dead" show...
I would say Angel, too, but when a show ends on a high note, I like to have it be ended. Same would go for Babylon 5 and Deep Space 9...
Omg, thank you wasp for reminding me, yes, the old Sonic was great. I used to wake up at 5 AM just to watch it before school 3 hours later!
February 21 2008 12:15 PM EST
futurama i believe signed with comedy central for 3 years of new episodes...
at least according to my friend...
Yes Definitely Blake's 7 I haven't heard it in years... I miss it so much... Also some more Doctor Who! I used to watch them both all the time on a local public television station back when I was 13... Oh do I miss them!
February 21 2008 12:57 PM EST
R.I.P Invader Zim :_(
February 21 2008 1:01 PM EST
Draco, Doctor Who IS back. Can't say that Season Three was even worth watching, but it is technically back on TV...
February 21 2008 1:42 PM EST
"Salute Your Shorts
Ren and Stimpy"
Agreed, on both counts. You should add You Can't Do That on Television to the list of great Nickelodeon shows of ages past.
Dead Like Me
Rome (though this one wasn't really canceled)
Married with Children
I'm sure there are more, but I can't think of any at the time.
February 21 2008 3:18 PM EST
Barney Miller (i loved the intro song and fish)
Beavis and Butthead
Married With Children
if i had tivo in my room; those would be on it for sure
February 21 2008 3:45 PM EST
Whose Line Is It Anyway?
"Who's line is it anyways?"
Isn't that still on ABC Family from 9-10 PM central?
February 21 2008 5:37 PM EST
Hasn't been on TV around here in years...
February 21 2008 5:48 PM EST
I remember watching the science fiction series V late at night with my first ever black and white TV in my own room ! I loved that series at the time although I saw an old episode not too long ago and couldn't believe how bad it was when viewed nowadays!
I also loved Hill Street Blues and more recently West Wing.
Already mentioned above is Soap and Blakes 7
If we're gonna talk Blakes 7 though, what about Logans Run ? That was just fantastic and had a cool car too :)
Oh, cool car... Knightrider :)
JW, how could you forget Monkey ?
Program I miss the most (at least as far as theme tune goes) from when I was a kid..? Champion the Wonder Horse ! Makes me smile every time.
how old is G_Beee anyway?
February 21 2008 5:50 PM EST
The Tick. Not the animated one, the live action version.
February 21 2008 6:22 PM EST
I never forget Monkey. Just ask Maelstrom.
Ah, V! What was the mercenary guy? Tyler? And a rodent eating alien called Diana - that didn't strike a chord with people living in the UK at the time at all did it? The bit where the girl gave birth to a half alien half human baby....that was the talk of school for months afterwards!
And as for Logan's Run....not the tv series...the movie...with Jenny Agutter......
February 21 2008 6:26 PM EST
Knightrider is back too, in a sense... Haven't watched it -- shows that defy Conservation of Momentum get crossed right off my list, unless magic or the Undead are involved.
February 21 2008 6:26 PM EST
PLEASE tell me someone remembers this show!
February 21 2008 6:55 PM EST
i hum the theme to Bobby's World from time to time as well ^_^
Bobby was a stressful little boy though, made Howie lose all his hair... Apparently Howie is just a secretary for some banker nowadays, couldn't handle kids or germs...
February 21 2008 7:11 PM EST
I can still hear Bobby's voice in my head.
I was going to say Hill Street Blues a while ago but I misread the thread to be "canceled and wEnt back on the air". Hmm, Reading IS fundamental.
School House Rock. Technically not a "show" but oh how I loved it. (I do have the DVD).
MST 3000. The original. Laughter till I passed out.
I am very much going to miss Battlestar Galactica after this season as it's supposed to be the last.
February 21 2008 7:47 PM EST
Bobby and his 3 wheeled bike (i forget what they're called)
and his funny voice. ^.^
Sports Night (second on that)
Brisco County Jr. (third on that)
Beavis and Butthead
Lucky (only one season on cable)
I sort of miss Happy Days. But had it not died so harshly maybe "jumped the shark" wouldn't mean squat.
brisco county jr

Oh! Kim Possible. Best show ever. Disney needs to give me more of it.
The Tick (animated and Live action are both good as well). I have been meaning to find the original comics and stuff it came from.
February 22 2008 10:58 AM EST
It was right after 'How I met your mother'. It was hilarious, I wonder if they canceled it during the writers strike.
February 22 2008 1:46 PM EST
"Whose Line is it Anyways?" and Scrubs
V was a mini-series... boy that scared the crap out of me
