The Top Ten
Do you love ariana grande?
As you'd expect, it had low ratings amongst the target audience. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
I don't understand why people want this show to come back but they didn't even watch it when it was on T.V. cause of low ratings. MAKE UP YOUR MIND PEOPLE - 23windomt

Ben 10 never should've existed. Cartoon Network was better off with this AND the original Teen Titans instead of Ben 10. - RegularShowFTWSuperjailFTL
The series increased Cartoon Network's viewership back in the 2000s. It centered around the animated Puffy AmiYumi, and was inspired by Rocky and Bullwinkle, Hanna-Barbera, old MGM and Warner Bros. cartoons, and UPA cartoons, while maintaining its anime influence. Why was it cancelled? Two reasons.
1. The series, along with Teen Titans (2003) were overshadowed by the popularity of Ben 10 and My Gym Partner's a Monkey.
2. Renegade Animation went on to do the work on the live-action/animated Cartoon Network television movie Re-Animated.
Those were why Sam Register, creator and showrunner of Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi quit Cartoon Network in 2006. Even when Cartoon Network picked up a 4th season! This show should've lasted until 2009, if it wasn't for Ben 10, My Gym Partner's a Monkey, and Out of Jimmy's Head. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
The fact Cartoon Network chose The Problem Solverz over this is very sad. - RadioHead03
I really love this show! It just sickens me that Cartoon Network had to cancel this show in favor of that Problem Solverz show! - RegularShowFTWSuperjailFTL
Damn I remember this show. - Not_A_Weeaboo
I remember seeing this years ago. - zeroclubsboiiV 1 Comment
It was cancelled because Cartoon Network thought it was too childish and they wanted more live-action shows. It's a shame, because this is one of my favorite Cartoon Network shows. - Drawbox
Seriously, I liked Chowder which was such a great Cartoon Network show that never should have been cancelled. It would have lasted more longer than that ridiculous Teen Titans Go.
This was sadly cancelled, because it did not fit with Cartoon Network's older boy demographic. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
This show was pretty good. - RadioHead03
Would of been way better than Mighty B. - RadioHead03
I know this did not become a T.V. show, but why was it rejected? It was created by Lynne Naylor and Chris Reccardi, whose other credits include Chowder, Ren and Stimpy, the Powerpuff Girls, My Life as a Teenage Robot, Tiny Toon Adventures, Samurai Jack, and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. It even stars the talents of Mae Whitman, Paul Rugg, and Jeff Bennett. Why was it rejected? Not only that cliffhanger ending, but it was done in favor of Back at the Barnyard. Or maybe it was that female protagonist, unless the Mighty B! was greenlit.
Nickelodeon must've done a HORRIBLE movie like that. Disney Channel should've picked up the series if Cartoon Network or Nickelodeon won't. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
This should've been greenlit instead of that garbage Mighty B!
I agree! This show SHOULD HAVE been a T.V. show. It’s even more of a shame that Chris Reccardi died. At least Lynne Naylor is still alive. If the Modifyers does become a series, hopefully Charlie Bean would take Chris Reccardi’s position as co-showrunner. - RegularShowFTWSuperjailFTL
I heard there wasn't much merchandise for the show, so they cancelled it. - Drawbox
This show should NOT have ended the way it did. - KeyboardHero
Again. Overshadowed by Ben 10. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
Cliffhanger... - codgtamk34V 2 Comments
Apparently, Nick felt like it doesn't deserve a proper DVD release (its only episodes released are two of them on the Nick Pick DVDs). - KalloFox34
And the Nickelodeon forgot about its existence - codgtamk34
This came out the same year as Avatar. - kcianciulli
Shame Nickelodeon doesn’t remember this show. - RadioHead03
Created by Aaron Springer, a writer for Dexter's Laboratory, Samurai Jack, SpongeBob SquarePants, and the Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, and starring the voices of Diedrich Bader, Tom Kenny, John DiMaggio, Corey Burton, and the late Craig T. Raisner. This series is what happens when you cross Conan the Barbarian with Rick and Morty.
This was even picked up for a series by [adult swim], but was unfortunately rejected due to its high budget. It was later rejected in favor of shows like Superjail! and Xavier: Renegade Angel, which had a LOWER budget. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
Ends with Lumpus being an imposter. Really? - codgtamk34
At least it provided the show with a cameo from Camp Lazlo's ACTUALLY great predecessor (not going to spoil which character it was, but it should be pretty obvious) - xandermartin98
Was based off of a video game and is STILL a far better show than Ren & Stimpy - xandermartin98
BEFORE Phil Lord and Chris Miller became overrated as Hell - xandermartin98
Soccermoms think the main character was "gay". - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
Why has this show been cancelled yet The Bachelor/Bachelorette is still airing?! I guess people want to see Drama Crybabies instead of cute animals. - kcianciulli
This show sucked!
Stupid Pokemon knockoff.
Wish they'd bring this show back. - PandaMan
A final episode was planned, until Nickelodeon pulled the plug. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
The first season is a hit and miss season, but the second one is really good! Too bad by the time everyone realized this, the show ended. - Drawbox
This show was NEVER good! I'm glad it got cancelled. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
It was pretty good. But yeah cancelled way too soon. - codgtamk34
This show was critically panned. Plus, the characters look odd. - kcianciulli
This looks like it was fanmade. - kcianciulli
No, this show lasted too LONG.
It needed to end a long time ago - codgtamk34
It should have least been given a proper ending. - kcianciulli
16 years was long enough. And only the first 5 or 6 seasons were any good. - KalloFox34
In my opinion, it was good until they introduced that Mutt and that Mary Sue. I want to see Quagmire do things to Chloe's mom then kill all the Carmichael family. I would be laughing my guts out. - kcianciulli
I added this to the list, deal with it. - kcianciulli
Jimmy Neutron is not a very good show, so it deserves to be cancelled and forgotten. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
I guess it was because Nick wanted more SpongeBob. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
Although if you want to talk about staying in its prime,
I'd have to say it actually went on for a bit too LONG - xandermartin98
Was actually ended by decision of its creator, but still easily counts nonetheless - xandermartin98
It's coming back as a movie later this year. - codgtamk34
COULD have been great but was instead painfully generic, more accurately
(seriously, do any of you realize how much potential this show's concept had) - xandermartin98
Dope ass cartoon from the 2000s that only lasted a season.
Mission Hill should’ve had more episodes! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
I heard this was cancelled, because much of the show's crew went on to do other projects. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
The ending was so weird. - codgtamk34
It deserved to be cancelled
Even though it was so boring that it actually felt almost as long as Batman TAS - xandermartin98
