The Internet is rife with failed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles clones. Yet while we chuckle about Street Sharks, or Biker Mice From Mars, some shows were so obscure that you don't even get irony points for referencing them. Such is the case for Captain Simian and the Space Monkeys, a cartoon/toy franchise about a former NASA test chimp fighting space-crime alongside several apes and surprisingly few actual monkeys.
2. The Brothers Flub (1999)
If you were a kid with basic cable in the '90s, Nickelodeon basically owned your soul. Everyone loved Nicktoons, from Doug, to Rugrats, and all the way to Spongebob Squarepants it has been a non-stop nostalgia factory. So why is it that these two penis-nosed Toejam and Earl rejects have been forgotten by time? Forgive us, The Brothers Flub, because we all know what it's like to be less successful than an Angry Beavers rerun.
3. Road Rovers (1997)
Speaking of animation blocks with one regretable mistake, we have Road Roavers, the crown turd of Warner Brothers Animation. The same production company that brought classics like Tiny Toons Adventures and Batman the Animated Series comes the story of five dogs who drive cars, talk in funny accents, and never adress the David Cronenbergian biological nightmare that comes with being forcibly "transdogmified" into a bipedal half-human creature. Lasting only 13 episodes, this series' legacy is now mostly left to a bunch of creepy fanart of the female collie character on DeviantArt.
