    Notice how these new shows are just copycats of classic cancelled shows. Help me name some.

    Jimmy Neutron- Dexter's Laboratory
    Drake & Josh- Kenan & Kel
    All Grown Up- A VERY stupid spinoff
    Zoey 101- Never saw it but it sounds like a remake of Clarissa Explains It All
    Unfabulous- Doug
    As Told By Ginger- Doug and Clarissa

    None of those are even REAL remakes. They've been remaking shows and movies for years.

    Remakes of old shows
    Every Transformers show since Beast Wars
    Every GI Joe show since DiC's version in 1989
    The 2003 TMNT and the Next Mutation
    Extreme Ghostbusters
    My Little Pony Tales
    New Adventures of He-Man and the 2002 He-Man
    CyberCOPS (that 1990s remake of the 1988 show C.O.P.S.)
    That FOX Kids remake of the 1979 Flash Gordon cartoon

    Those are what I consider remakes

    it's just certain formulas that they use.. they find which combinations work and which ones are the most popular and they make other shows. i totally agree with u tho.. it basically is the same shows and it definately is getting worse.. i say if they are gonna go through that whole long ass process, bring back the original show. true, it wont be the same, but it would be better than most crap they put out today.

    Jimmy Neutron- Dexter's Laboratory


    Jimmy isn't really a copy cat. He has no annoying sister, no secret lab, he has friends unlike Dexter, he uses brain blasts.

    Drake & Josh- Kenan & Kel


    Drake and Josh are related through marriage not just friends like Kenan and Kel, Kel loves orange soda and Josh loves Opra.

    All Grown Up- A VERY stupid spinoff


    It's not a spin-off, it's more of a sequel. Ican see if only a certain percentage of characters were present but it's still the same cast.

    Zoey 101- Never saw it but it sounds like a remake of Clarissa Explains It All


    If you've never seen Clarissa Explains It All then how can you...?

    Unfabulous- Doug


    Lol. Are you serious?

    CyberCOPS is not a remake of the C.O.P.S. as they are the same thing. CyberCOPS was just another name for the series when it aired on Saturday mornings on CBS. It was called C.O.P.S. while it aired in syndication.

    I don't believe a Flash Gordon cartoon ever aired on Fox Kids USA but I could be wrong...

    Actually there was two Batman cartoons out before the 1992 one. They was both made by Filmation in 1968 and 1977 (the one with Bat-Mite).

    Yes, but The Batman is more based off TAS then the Filmation ones.
