What are some cartoons they should have made but didn't?

Max Headroom had a sci-fi show in the US:

It wasn't a cartoon.

He wasn't even a REAL virtual person - he was an photographed actor with foam rubber hair superimposed against a fake digital background with clever editing.

I read somewhere they were planning on making an M. C. Skat Kat cartoon show and movie:

but that project never saw the light of day.

M. C. Skat Kat was an animated character who appeared with Paula Adbul in two music videos and was popular in the late '80s and early '90s:

@izzythepush,
You are an idiot - he was a LIVE ACTOR pretending to be a virtual person. As Computers were not sophisticated enough for a REAL virtual person in the '80s and the MOST sophisticated PCs they had back then were Commodore Amigas.

I could be wrong about this - MAYBE they could have created an actual virtual person on the Amiga. Not everyone use using Amigas - they were very expensive. Some artists were creating 2-D Flash-like animated cartoons on them like Eric Schwartz:

I am not going to go into it - I discovered this guy when I first started using the Net. I have seen some of his animated Amiga cartoons.

@JGoldman10,
You're the idiot, Max Headroom had run its course. Most cartoon adaptations of something that already exists are disappointing to say the least. Why are you so in love with the mediocre?

@izzythepush,
No - YOU are, and I beg to differ. That SCI-FI show they had in the '80s for Max Headroom was an ADULT DRAMA - they COULD have had a CARTOON SERIES FOR KIDS. He was CARTOONY enough to warrant a KIDS' CARTOON show.

Quote:
In 1987, Max Headroom appeared on Sesame Street, reciting the alphabet in an insert.

The character was spoofed in the Spring 1987 issue of Muppet Magazine, with Link Hogthrob appearing as "Max Hogroom". The Winter 1989 issue featured an interview with series regular Chris Young.

In the Muppet Babies episode "This Little Piggy Went to Hollywood," Baby Gonzo does a Max Headroom impression and says that he's the weirdest guy on TV.
At the end of the mini-game "Beaker's Brain" on the 1996 CD-Rom game Muppets Inside, one of Bunsen's closing speeches turns into a digital jumble of Max Headroom-esque gobbledygook. Whether this "plunder" came up accidentally in some copies of the game or was just an intended parody (reminiscent of Andy Kaufman fiddling with the vertical hold in his TV specials) remains to be seen.

Quote:
The comic strip Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau had a character fashioned after Max Headroom named Ron Headrest. He was to be a temporary replacement for a vacationing or napping Ronald Reagan.

Quote:
Max Headroom has inspired many imitations and spoofs. In 1980s, Garry Trudeau created the character Ron Headrest for his political comic strip Doonesbury. The character combined the concepts of Max Headroom and then US President Ronald Reagan. Back to the Future Part II also featured a Max Headroom inspired Reagan, as well as computer generated versions of Michael Jackson and the Ayatollah Khomeini as waiters at the fictitious Cafe '80s. There is an homage to Max Headroom in the 1997 film Batman & Robin when Barbara encounters her uncle Alfred Pennyworth in the batcave. He has programmed his brain algorithms into the batcomputer and created a virtual simulation. He appears and speaks (stutteringly) like Max Headroom.

@JGoldman10,
How about JGoldman & His Magic Broomstick? I know, I know, it wasn't an actual television show; just one you manufactured in your brain; but, hey, you can still make it into a cartoon (much like the rest of your life).

Every week, young Goldman finds himself in a predictable predicament. He turns to his trusted kitty cat Whiskey and they fly around town on the magic broomstick searching for sweaty swearing men to teach them how to be swashbucklers. At the end of each episode, our star...JGoldman10...returns home and is shoved on top of his magical broomstick where he remains until the following week while Whiskey the cat goes out and has a gay old time.

@Butrflynet,
Yes- I know about some of that stuff. But they STILL didn't give MAX his own cartoon show.

The could have gave Carrot Top his own cartoon show:

With his oddball humor and his crazy inventions.

On the other hand, this guy probably creeps kids out.

They COULD do a Carrot Top cartoon but they would have to clean it up for TV.

They could have made a Doonesbury series:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doonesbury

And a series based on Jeff Macnelley's Shoe:

People like shows about social and political commentary:

I was going to suggest a Beetle Bailey cartoon series, but such a series exists:

They should have given Robert Townsend his own cartoon show:

http://gospelcity.com/image.php?imageID=15687

I remember he was in a show called the Parent Trap.

Jimmy Walker should have had one:

He was widely popular in the '80s and he was in an obscure '80s sitcom called Bustin' Loose:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bustin'_Loose_(TV_series)

The Wayans Bros. definitely should have had one:

The Wayans Bros. were cartoony enough to inspire a cartoon show based on them. They are working on some kids' cartoon show:
