They're some of the most popular superheroes ever created, but before a hit animated series and blockbuster film franchise turned the X-Men into a household name, they were featured in PRYDE OF THE X-MEN, a pilot episode for a different animated series that failed to take off. Back in the late 1980s/early 1990s, X-MEN was one of the most legendary failed pilots ever, even though it got a lot of things wrong, like making Logan (a.k.a. Wolverine) really, really, REALLY... Australian?
But was X-MEN... canceled too soon? Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they take you back in time to when Saturday morning cartoons ruled the landscape, when Marvel made MUPPET BABIES and when an impressively animated show like PRYDE OF THE X-MEN just wasn't good enough (apparently). Weird details, unexpected trivia and lots of overthinking it abound in this all new episode of CANCELED TOO SOON!
