Added DiffLines:

* AdvertisingByAssociation: This was this reason it caught the ire of the [[MoralGuardians Parents Television Council]]; ads for the show cited [[Creator/DreamWorksAnimation its studio]] as the creators of ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'', which they felt would mislead kid/family audiences into watching a show that was most decidedly ''[[AllAdultAnimationIsSouthPark not]]'' aimed at such.

But the show was a flop anyway, for several reasons. It was very uncomfortable to watch the show with [[RealitySubtext Roy's recent mauling]] in mind. Many airings were repeatedly interrupted by updates on the 2004 presidential election. Plus, the show was way expensive and time-consuming, with each episode costing over 1.5 million dollars to make and over nine months to complete. Some episodes never aired in the U.S.(with one that was never finished being animated) though the entire series was released on [=DVD=].
