other Kids' WB cartoons
These are a few things that aired on Saturday mornings on Kids' WB, which I don't care enough about to give their own pages, but I do care enough to at least write a little something about them. (There may actually be some things I write less about that I do give their own pages, but you know... it ain't quantity, it's quality.)

Cubix: Robots for Everyone (CGI)
Hulu; IMDb; TV.com; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

Well, yeah. This... was a computer generated cartoon... kind of seemed sort of like anime, but not really. And um, I dunno. I wasn't that into it, but I watched it for awhile. This kid named Connor and his dad moved to Bubble Town, where there were a lot of robots. Some of them just seemed to have jobs, and some of them were like friends to people around town. Mainly kids. Connor became friends with a group of kids, including a girl named Abby, plus Chip and Mong. And they hung out and worked at a robot repair shop called the Botties Pit, which was run by a mechanic named Hela, who was also sort of a friend to the kids. Anyway, Connor fixed up a robot named Cubix, who became his friend. And he could turn into lots of different forms, and helped battle the evil robots of a mad scientist named Dr. K. And aside from that, I don't really remember much. And I didn't really care that much about the show, but still I sort of felt it was worth mentioning.... Oh yeah, and the show had some of the same VAs as Pokemon characters, like Dr. K sounded like Meowth, Hela sounded like Jessie, and apparently Abby had the same VA as Ash and May, though I'm afraid I don't really remember what she sounded like....


Detention
IMDb; Retro Junk; TV.com; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

There were a bunch of middle school kids. I don't remember it well, but Shareena Wickett was cool, slightly goth. And Emmitt Roswell was interesting I guess, into like conspiracy theories. Wish I could say something about the show, but it wasn't great anyway. At least I wanted an entry here to mention that I remember it. Vaguely.


Loonatics Unleashed
IMDb; Looney Tunes Wiki; TV.com; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia

It's set in 2772, after a meteorite has hit the city-planet Acmetropolis, and I guess its effects produced some superheroes. They are, of course, a futuristic, anime-ish reimagining of familiar Looney Tunes characters- or I guess descendants of those characters. They include Ace Bunny, (the team leader), Lexi Bunny, Danger Duck, Tech E. Coyote, Slam Tasmanian, and Rev Runner. They were all assembled by someone named Zadavia, who appears to them on a monitor to give them assignments, or whatever. The team is called the Loonatics. Not sure what else to say. Of course it tries to be funny. I don't find it all that funny, though I do think the style of humor is fairly similar to typical Looney Tunes humor, which I usually find funnier than this, so I dunno. Anyway, I couldn't get into the show, so I stopped watching before too long. I guess it lasted two seasons, but I don't think I watched all of the first.


¡Mucha Lucha!
IMDb; TV.com; TV Tropes; Warner Bros.; Wikia; Wikipedia

I don't think I actually watched that much of this. It was about a group of kids who were lucha libre wrestlers in training, or whatever. The main characters were Rikochet, Buena Girl, and The Flea. That's all I remember. It was kinda weird, but probably a better show than an earlier, unrelated, live-action show I also saw a bit of, called Los Luchadores (Wikipedia), which may have been my first experience with lucha libre type entertainment. But I think a much better Lucha- themed cartoon would be El Tigre.


The Mummy: The Animated Series
IMDb; TV.com; TV Tropes; Universal; Wikia; Wikipedia

This came out in 2001, several months after The Mummy Returns. I'm sure I saw a bit of the series, but probably not much. I don't remember any details, and I'm not sure how much I liked it. Still, I wouldn't mind seeing it again someday.


Ozzy & Drix
IMDb; TV.com; TV Tropes; Warner Bros.; Wikipedia

This was based on the movie "Osmosis Jones," which I've never seen. It's about a white blood cell named Osmosis "Ozzy" Jones, who is a cop in a "city" which is actually a human boy named Hector (he was in a different person in the movie, though). Anyway, Ozzy gets partnered with a pill named Drix, and the crime they fight is actually diseases Hector is suffering, or whatever. I'm not sure how much of the show I actually watched, and I never loved it, but I'm sure it was okay. Certainly I appreciate the absurdity of the premise.
