Best Animated Pilots


The Top Ten

1 Infinity Train Infinity Train Infinity Train is an American animated short pilot created by Owen Dennis for Cartoon Network. It follows Tulip and her companion One-One, which is composed by Glad-One and Sad-One, in their journey through a seemingly infinite train with limitless possibilities to find a way to Tulip's home.

Cartoon Network needs to make this a show. With Adventure Time and Regular Show ending soon, it's definitely the ending of an era for the network. Infinity Train would make a PERFECT replacement to those two awesome shows. The pilot is funny, the characters are all great (especially the protagonist Tulip), and it has an intriguing mysterious tone that reminds me of cartoon greats like Adventure Time and Gravity Falls. Infinity Train is only an eight minute pilot and it already has a pretty big fan base. If Cartoon Network wants to maintain relevance, they need to greenlight this as soon as possible. Either that, or they can continue to show Teen Titans Go 24/7. It's their choice, and I hope they make the right one. - phillysports

I need this to become a show. It is awesome and I am interested in the world of this infinitive train. I want to know what the 33 on Tulip's hand symbolizes. I need to know. Hell I'd be happy if this was a mini series like Over the Garden Wall. - TailchaserFan10

5/5. Too good to put in words. Cartoon Network NEEDS this show, Regular Show and Adventure Time are ending soon and something needs to fill the role of a good CN show. - MistyMay113

It feels like it could become the next Adventure Time or Regular Show. It has good humour and an interesting plot with some mystery to it. I have to know what the number on tulips hand means - Lunala

2 Obituary: A Grave Beginning

What a cool and epic pilot. June wants to fit in at a school, but was surprised that everyone mistakes her for The Cemetery Girl. She lives at a mortuary after her parents died and was raised by ghosts. Blatsy was an awkward nerdy outcast who got bullied by Vince Rasp, Coach McKinney makes a good History teacher and gym coach, and popular rich and mean girl Lisa Rose has a clique called The Flowers, with two girls named after flowers, Daisy and Violet. - DynastiSugarPop

This and Infinity train are the best pilots I've ever seen, Twelve Forever was awesome too. - TheAlbinoWolf

I love Sparkles, she's so cute. I also love Gloom, she's got angst and she's so cute. She reminds me of Mandy from Billy & Mandy. - DynastiSugarPop
