Call me a softie, but I say that Kirby of the Stars/Kirby: Right Back at Ya! should make a return. It wasn't exactly cancelled, more like all networks decided that they could replace it with other shows, most of which are not even that good.

I agree with everything except for Dexter's Lab, which I think went on far too long after they changed the art style, and The book of Daniel which I've never heard of. I'd add:

Frisky Dingo
Southland
Mission Hill
Life
Arrested Development
Invader Zim

That's all I have for now

Arrested Development was totally cancelled way before it should have been.  I also wish that Daria and DJ and the Fro were still on.  MTV only cancels the good shows and keeps shit like 16 and Pregnant.

invader zim probably got removed from television because of all of the fan-faggotry that the creators couldn't put up with, lol. as for the samurai jack movie...it's been a while since the last episode aired and i've basically heard nothing about it, i don't think it's coming, personally, and if it does it probably won't be for a long while, it's also likely that they may have cancelled it without informing the public, but my info is pretty outdated concerning that because the last time i heard about it was like...last april.

Judgement Day (a video game review show that featured 2 seperate reviewers, who each gave a game a review, so 2 for each game, plus instead of 1 to 5 scale like X-Play, it was a scale of 1 to 10 with .5's also in it, they also gave positive and negative sides to each game. it was on G4 before X-Play was.)

Arena (another G4 show, but this was about 2 teams of gamers who played multiplayer games for prizes, it was incredibly entertaining to watch)

My Gym Partner's a M- pffft HAHAHAHAHAHA!! i couldn't do that with a straight face, no that show is dead where is belongs.

Cheat! (back when it was a actual half hour show, hosted by Cory, it was incredibly entertaining, he gave good tips and cheats, and was funny about i while doing it.)

The Oblongs (it was entertaining, a bit weird though, but that was on purpose, plus it had will Ferell as a voice actor.)

Stroker and Hoop (this show was amusing to me, nothing else needs to be said.)

Static Shock (anyone ever watch this? it was cool)

Justice League Unlimited (..........oddly a cool show considering i hate most DC comic heroes)

Teen Titans (come on, it was cool, we all know it.)

thats all i can think of at the moment

Well the basic plot was that some guy invented a device to travel between dimensions, which were alternate versions of Earth. Then they go through a ton of adventures like this and quite some weird stuff happens (like there's this one episode where dinosaurs never got extinct or something, or one where fire is an actual life form). I believe it ran from 1995-2000.

Here's the Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sliders

I remember that show. It was good and I re-watched the show on youtube some time ago. Can't help but enjoy comic based animated shows (as long as they stay somewhat true to their respected image.)

I've got a good list right here: Firefly, Jericho, Sonic SatAM, Dollhouse, Sliders (but more like a reboot), John Doe, Fantasy Island (again, sadly, reboot. AND NOT A REALITY SHOW, stoopid Hollywood >_>), Quantum Leap (reboot) and in terms for my own country: Doctor Who. They should never have stopped airing it here. ;_; (I know it's still going, but not here)

Firefly (Thanks for the movie we had an ending, but there were still a lot of stuff to explore)
Farscape (Thanks to "The Peacekeeper Wars" we had an ending as well and if we didn't, the cliffhanger at the end of season 4 was horrible.)
Dollhouse (but we had a real ending to the story, not like Firefly, this time around Joss Whedon was prepared), Sliders (even if the last season was crap, the first 3 were good)
John Doe (there was a rumour about a tv movie to end the series, but I guess it was never made)
Kyle XY

I would have to say Jericho, still don't understand why it was cancelled, so what if had sort of bad ratings, ratings shouldn't matter as much as they do, don't get me wrong though, of course if the ratings are horrendous it should go, but Jericho obviously had a lot of loyal followers, plus, it would've been pretty badass to see a second civil war in america

I miss Futurama, but I'll be glad when it's back.
But Code Monkeys was an original, well made show, and I can't believe G4 would shelve it for more re-runs of Cops!

Nathan Fillion has not ad much luck, both Firefly and Drive where cut too soon, ther is always Castle now.

As much as i like Whedon, Dollhouse really should not have got a second season the premise was bad and Dushku could not carry the show. There were a lot of people willing to give it a second chance after seeing epitaph one but the 2nd season started as poor as the first ended. The show only got good in the second season once the axe had fallen and the plot threads had to be coalesced into the latter half.

If anyone has seen the Global Frequency pilot that was doing the rounds a few years ago it should have been made.

Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip should have been a success, except it was marketed to be similar to 30 Rock as a comedic background to a sketch show where actually the sketch show was incidental.

Finally Life was awesome damn you America for not watching it, even if i am watching the 2nd season on FX at the moment in the UK, (because honestly i never saw it on any torrent site and you cant prove that i did)

another
FLCL or Fooly Cooly (according to Wiki, the directors of the series Avatar: The Last Airbender actually claim inspiration from this iconic anime, and apparently ordered ALL the staff to buy the entire series and watch every episode, which isn't hard Cause;
A. its awesome
B. only 6 episodes long. (too short in my opinon)
i'd also like to state i'd like to see the manga version of it, which again according to Wiki, was darker, more violent, and focused more on sex and violence, and one of the robots Canti fought ends up a ally, there is also a different ending)

The Boondocks is coming back this year(May 2nd) and I don't think it'll get cancelled until McGruder wants to end the show. And whenever that is, it'll be a good decision.

I know but this is going to be the final season, so it's going to end. That's why I said the Boondocks.

If that's the case, I hope they go out on a high note and leave the best episode for last. Loved the first season but was a little put off by season 2.

FLCL if any one knows that show. it was like 5 or 6 episodes long from start to conclusion. i would have loved to get more out of that. also more blue gender. if you like alien bugs, giant robots,violence, guns, excessive gore and awkward romance scenes its defiantly good. the biggest downside is they tend to kill of characters instead of letting them live some where off screen never to be mentioned again.

FlashForward. It started out interesting, got really slow toward the middle and that ramped it up for the last few episodes with the finale being excellent. The premise was unique enough to warrant a second season.

1. Deadwood: loved that show so much, it never ceased to amaze me just how many times Al Swearengen was able to use the F word
2. Babylon 5. Another 5 seasons following the same basic premise as the original 5 oo)
3. Fraggle rock: Definately one of my favourite shows when growing up
4. Sarah Connor Terminator chronicles


I'm sure there are a lot more, but these are the ones i can think of off the top of my head
