    There have been many unaired pilots like the youngblood cartoon, justice league live action pilot, and the live action/ animated pink panther pilot.

    Anyone seen any of these? Are they worth hunting down? Found a few pictures from a few of them.

    I've seen the Justice League, and the answer is no.

    It's not terrible, like other shows that either make it to air or die in a similar fashion, but it's not worth the effort of hunting it down.

    Buffy is on you tube and is like 15 minutes, the JLA is utter trash. It makes the adam wast Batman show look like high drama. There have been 1000's of unreleased pilot ranging from a plastic man cartoon to a Fantastic Four movie produced before the Fox version. For most of them there was a valid reason the projects never happened. Others it came down to cost or other issues.

    Wacky Races Forever looks like it would have been great fun.

    I would have watched the hell out of the unaired Orson Welles Show and Heil Honey, I'm Home.

    Gremlins had a cartoon pilot that has yet to see the light of day. You'd think they'd have included it as a DVD and/or Blu-Ray extra to one of the movies by now.

    Have you actually seen the one episode of Heil Honey that did air? It would have got the axe just for being shit had it survived the controversy.

    constant payne is pretty cool! :lol

    not surprised captain america got canned, besides it's epic animation style, it looks extremely violent, plus nazi's...

    and fox doesn't like either :lol

    I had no damn clue they had an animated Buffy, or a new Wacky Races. I would watch the Wacky Races one, that show was awesome.

    The captain America one looked good.

    One pilot I wish had been picked up was Welcome to Eltingville or The Eltingville Club. It was a nerd reference heaven. Group of nerds have nerd problems. Pilot had two of the nerds both wanting to buy a MISB original 12 in Boba Fett. They have a Trivia Off of nerd knowledge.


    I also loved God the Devil and Bob (have the entire series) which lasted 3 episodes, and You Don't know Jack which lasted 6.

    the last unaired pilot I saw was the Aquaman pilot. It was done by the same group who did Smallville, and to be set in the same universe. Aquaman was played Justin Hartley the same actor who played Green Arrow on Smallville. It was made before they introduced Green Arrow to the show
    It wasn't a bad Pilot, but I think its main flaw was that is was going to be Smallville but set in Florida rather than Kansas. It was at least worth the effort to download

    Wacky Races looks like it would have been cool.
    Captain America would have been aces.
    I'm not too sad about Plastic Man.
    (Wasn't there a Plastic Man cartoon in the 80s?)
    Dick Digit? Really?
    The character's name is Dick Digit?
    Someone thought that was a good idea and someone else approved it?

    I watched the first minute or so of it.
    What the hell is up with the devil appearing in front of the puppet anyway?

    I think the The Modifyers would have, and could still be a good show.

    Not really a pilot, but I thought it was better than many live action cartoon remakes.
    and it's only a commercial
    Y&R - Peugeot 208 - Wacky Races - YouTube

    Plus there was already a wacky races short in the thread.
