Best Cartoon Network Pilots


The Top Ten

1 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.

Who wouldn't want to immerse themselves in the vast infinite world of this mysterious and intriguing fantasy animated series? No doubt about it that the pilot truly deserved its widespread Internet popularity for its premise and similar elements to other phenomenal mystery shows like Gravity Falls. I know every person in the world has probably already said this, but I'm going to say it anyways: Cartoon Network should give the green light for this. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

All aboard the hype train for Infinity Train! Cartoon Network just officially teased Infinity Train finally being green-lit and coming in 2019! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I wanna see this become a series - Lunala

The animation could use a little work, but the humor (most of which borders along the British sense) is top-notch clever and creative. Though, the premise isn't anything too new to me, I don't see what could go wrong with this series if it ever got green-lit. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Right. I think I accidentally forgot it got green-lit when I was typing this comment. I have yet to see the pilot, but I have heard good things about it and I will watch it soon. Once I see all the pilots on this list, I'll do a remix in the future counting down my favorite Cartoon Network pilots. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

George Gendi is a genius. Great job on Gumball and now he's in Burbank. - 445956

Pickle and Peanut, but good. - 445956

3 Back to Backspace

I really liked this pilot, I want this to be greenlit. - AliciaMae

4 Summer Camp Island

Eh... I don't really like the art style for this show, but who knows? Perhaps the premise and potential stories that could be told in this mystery and fantasy series might make up for that. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

5 Victor & Valentino
6 Twelve Forever

The pilot has quite a vivid and imaginative setting and cast of characters. It kind of reminds me a little bit of Star vs The Forces of Evil. While the main female lead can be a bit too hyperactive for my tastes, she is a pretty fun character. And am I the only one who thinks her male friend looks like Carl from Johnny Bravo? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

7 Danger Planet
8 Lakewood Plaza Turbo

Didn't they make an entire episode highlighting how much the series has grown?

Quite a miracle that it managed to get green-lit into a full-length series that we know now as OK K.O. Let's Be Heroes. With the exception of Apple and Onion, this is probably one of the only successful cartoon pilots on this list that managed to get proper network treatment (to an extent...) and promotion. As for the series itself, what's not to like in a show about heroes highlighted by clever pop culture references to anime and video games and wicked action sequences? - ModernSpongeBobSucks
