* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'' may sound like it had a good run what with having three seasons of thirteen episodes and a three-episode pilot aired before the series proper began, but then you remember that it ran for less than a year-and-a-half, and Creator/CartoonNetwork [[ScrewedByTheNetwork kept shuffling it around to crappy slots and]] [[InvisibleAdvertising barely advertising it in favor of shows like]] JohnnyTest and CNReal, AND the fact that it had a planned fourth season that sounded AWESOME. This is at least in part due to the CN/Hasbro split that launched TheHub. Plus, the toyline was cut short by the {{Base Breaker}}ing film [[TransformersFilmSeries Revenge of the Fallen]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TheTwistedTalesOfFelixTheCat'': A wonderfully surreal cartoon with a MaxAndDaveFleischer feel. Only lasted 36 episodes.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheTwistedTalesOfFelixTheCat'': A wonderfully surreal cartoon with a MaxAndDaveFleischer feel. Only lasted 21 episodes due to low ratings (especially after the disastrous season 2 retool) and being a very expensive show to make.

Either the mainstream isn't interested or the network never even gives it a chance to build an audience (usual [[http://www.reallifecomics.com/comic.php?comic=title-1940-2 translation]]: it's on Creator/{{FOX}})... or it's created by [[Creator/TimMinear, Creator/JuddApatow, Creator/BryanFuller, or Creator/JossWhedon. Or the creator [[CreatorBreakdown buckles under the growing pressure to keep making high-quality installments.]] Sometimes, someone high up at the network takes a dislike to the show and [[ScrewedByTheNetwork does everything in his power to kill it]]. Other times [[NetworkDecay the network doesn't think it fits in]]. If the show is lucky enough to be shown on a cable network in reruns, it may build up a bigger following there than it ever had in its first run.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/TheCrew'', a comic series with a heavy African-American cast, was cancelled ''before its first issue was released''. Only seven issues were ultimately released and its creator, Creator/ChristopherPriest, is still somewhat bitter over it, believing that it was cancelled because Marvel thought it was a "ghetto book".

* ''{{Class of 3000}}'': Was one of the most popular series airing on the network at the time; canceled due to the ratings not justifying the high cost of making the show.

* TowerPrep : Another Live-action TV show that was too good to last. Same reason as ''Unnatural History''. Good premise, just not the right network for it.
* Now ''{{Robotomy}}'' has been cancelled, due to high production costs, lack of interest from foreign markets, and the simple fact that the show plays out more like an actual Creator/AdultSwim cartoon rather than a Cartoon Network show that airs before Adult Swim.

* ''TinyToonAdventures'': Sadly only lasted 3 seasons. It was cancelled to make way for ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' and because CharlieAdler quit after being rejected for ''Animaniacs''.

* ''TheLifeAndTimesOfJuniperLee'': Heavily screwed by CN with a bouncing timeslot and neglect of advertising. Ironically as a [[FollowTheLeader rival]] of American Dragon, both shows wound up suffering the same problems from their respective networks.
* ''TimeSquad'': Surprisingly, it wasn't canceled because someone complained about the rampant HoYay and [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar innuendo that flew past the radar]]. In fact, there isn't a definite story about why it was canceled. One story goes that Dave Wasson (the show creator) had a falling-out with his storyboard crew and the tensions threw production in a loop. Another story is the common "the show got low ratings, its timeslot kept getting shuffled [though, considering [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids its content]], airing it at 10pm before Creator/AdultSwim ''is'' a good idea], and it didn't get the audience that the other Cartoon Cartoon shows got" story, which is the more believable of the two stories.
