The pilot bombed spectacularly. The aborted series is a textbook example of a StillbornFranchise: a niche work being rammed into another medium, adaptation changes alienating the existing fans, critical panning, and a failure to capture a new mainstream audience. No further episodes were broadcast, and it likely destroyed any chance of a good ''Battletoads'' series ever being made.

* EpicFail: Morgan/Zits making a computer monitor explode just by pressing a few keys and Princess Angelica making a jelly doughnut explode by gently pinching it. Though the latter might have been an animation error.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: Much of the show's background music consists of genericized versions of old surf rock tunes (e.g. one of the battle scenes has a song that is clearly trying to sound like Music/DickDale's version of "Hava Nagila" of all things).

* {{Acrofatic}}: George is by far the largest of the main trio but is actually able to move pretty quickly around a basketball court and even manages to jump high enough to do a slam dunk. (Though ends up going through the hoop himself in the process.)

* StillbornFranchise: Never got past the pilot, no plans for additional animated adaptations despite the cult status of the original game. A good example of how attempts to leverage popularity in one genre to another can go awry.
