[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/miguzilogo.jpg]] ''Miguzi'' was a programming block from Creator/CartoonNetwork that ran on the weekday after-school slot from 2004 to 2007, when it died ingloriously and was briefly replaced by Master Control. Created by Cartoon Network’s Williams Street division, the folks that brought us {{Toonami}} and Creator/AdultSwim, it was created to be a lighter-toned successor to {{Toonami}} (while Toonami itself was reconfigured to a Saturday night block), running action shows from [[WesternAnimation America, France,]] [[{{Anime}} and Japan.]] The animated hostess here was [[UnfazedEveryman Erin]], a young [[AllCGICartoon CGI]] girl with black hair and a yellow jumpsuit who, at the start of the block, was transported underwater and into a sunken alien spaceship by an enormous red fish. There, she chills out and watches the shows along with a group of mutant sea creatures and robots, none of whom speaks but all of whom have rudimentary personalities. The block began as a sort of ReplacementScrappy, having been brought in to appease the kids after Toonami was booted off the time slot and moved to Saturday nights, where it kept on going for a year or two before its heartwarming finale. Although it was originally not very popular, especially with longtime Creator/CartoonNetwork fans, Miguzi grew on viewers soon enough, especially because it ran popular shows like ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' and ''Anime/YuGiOh'' as well as having introduced new "classics" such as ''CodeLyoko'' and ''TotallySpies'' ---- !!Featured Shows ''Miguzi'' was notorious for changing its programming at any moment's notice.

Not a Five Man Band, one of the roles is completely blank. Maybe reorganize under The Team
* FiveManBand: Erin and her monster friends, though their roles in the group dynamic often overlap. ** Erin -- TagalongKid ** Big Stalks -- TheBigGuy ** Curly -- TheSmartGuy ** Flip ** Yoke -- TheSixthRanger
