I'm surprised by how many of the shows listed in this thread got a reboot or continuation, maybe I should've posted in the thread as well


For my I'd say Mighty Max, great show with an awesome concept that isn't really been done anywhere else.

I also second Skeleton Warriors, the lore of it was awesome and could be made into a full blown awesome reboot.

DinoRiders - Dinosaurs with Lasers? Oh yeah, even the 80s 13 episode show that reeks of the worst tropes of cartoons from that era was able to be memorable because of the concept.

All three of the above were also amazing toylines that would be really appealing still to this day for me.

Wouldn't mind seeing a reboot of Skeleton Warriors, although the only reason I care is for the nostalgia over the toys and trading cards rather than the show itself.

I just watched the whole series of Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors on You Tube.

It's a shame it got cancelled due to bad toy sales.

I would love to see a reboot.

Don't trust the b in Apartment 23
Gargoyles

Other than the above shows, I wouldn't want any other classic shows to be brought back, to be honest. Some shows like Dallas, Heroes and Biker Mice from Mars are better off left in the past as evidenced by their failed recent revivals.

Man, a lot of justice has been served since 2014. It's pretty insane to think a lot of these seemed like distant dreams back then.

Other than the ones that have happened (Samurai Jack, Young Justice, etc.) and Dave the Barbarian (that show was just getting started, man), I think bringing shows back as often as we currently are is a bit harmful. Inevitably, it becomes networks just trying to cash in on a previously popular franchise, and we all know how that turns out. Currently, at least in animation, it's leading to a saturation of these revivals/reboots, and that's dangerous as it decreases the networks' abilities to try new things.

I'd just be careful what you wish for when it comes to these things. When you think about something like Danny Phantom, you have to remember that season 3 was not very good, and this can be largely attributed to Steve Marmel, a head story editor, leaving the show. If Danny Phantom was revived, there would still be no Marmel, and there would be a fairly good chance we wouldn't get a very good fourth season.

I'd rather most of these shows remain untouched than be brought back for less-than-quality revivals.

Must everything come back these day, even if the trademark is no longer strong enough?

Doesn't Mazinger Z get rebooted all the time, everytime I look at the wiki there seems to be a new movie or ova added

Futurama already had one revival that maybe shouldn't have happened, it shouldn't become another endless Family Guy or Simpsons show.

Pinky and the Brain could work but who knows, maybe its best to leave it in the past as well.

Well there are many shows that have a lot of potential that wasn't realized or deserve new stories. There are a few weak IPs in the thread but not all of them are bad.

I'm looking forward to this one, I'm a huge fan of Carmen Sandiego, I recently watched and reviewed the show. Hopefully we can get some video games or the old ones on steam.

The cartoon is definitely weak, it's not horrible and there are many terrible 90s shows that its better than but the 90s also had great stuff and it didn't quite match them since it was just passable.

But you're right, the toys, and artwork and lore was awesome, under some better hands the IP could become huge, it really was a more modern version of Masters of the Universe mixing technology and magic in a cool way. Sadly the kickstarter for the figures basically failed and only one figure was made, I just bought it recently, it looks great.

I still can't believe there's a new Dragonball series airing in the year 2017, for a franchise that originally ended way back in 1996.

It just boggles the mind all those years of people spreading rumors in the early 2000's of Dragonball coming back with a new series like, "AF" or something after GT, and it actually happened in 2015. And even better a direct continuation of DBZ and ignores GT.

That isnt' surprising at all, dude. They kept making DBZ games in the current century. That franchise is a huge cash cow. There's so many goddamn DBZ products out there that no one can even keep track of them.

DBZ is a really odd phenomenon. Every time a rerun airs on TV, people born between 1981 and 1992 will watch it again out of nostalgia purposes. How does that show have such a long lasting nostalgia for it and how it's able to appeal to anyone from age 16 to age 36 is beyond me. They say it's because it was the first ever shounen anime to become a big hit worldwide, but before DBZ people were watching Saint Seiya and Captain Tsubasa in Europe and Latin America. Tsubasa has nostalgia for it but nowhere on the same level as DBZ whilst Saint Seiya doesn't seem to be talked about as much and mostly having a cult following nowadays, I guess?

It was a surprise. There was no new Dragonball series in 18 years. GT really was "the end" of the franchise outside of merch/toys for almost two decades. We occasionally got one-off specials every so often, but there was no new series for nearly 20 years. The Beerus movie came out in 2013 and that's what essentially started the revival of Dragonball. Then in 2015 we got the Freeza movie and Super started that July.

Everyone thought Dragonball was done for good. GT bombed, Toriyama didn't want to continue the franchise, that's why teens kept spreading fake rumors of the series returning, or people made their own fanfiction manga and so forth. It was a huge shock when a new series was announced.

You have to remember for Japanese fans Dragonball ended in 1996. For dub fans in the west it ended around 2006 or so. For the west it's only been about 10 years for Dragonball's revival, in Japan it was closer to 20.

Weren't there games realeased in the previous decade? I remember people talking about the Bodokai series.

Videogames were always released, sure, but no new series. Kai also doesn't really count as it's just spliced together old episodes.
