'''''Mission Hill''''', a short-lived animated series that ran on the WB from 1999 to 2000 (then aired in reruns in 2002 on the fledgling AdultSwim block on CartoonNetwork), followed the lives of 24-year-old slacker Andy French and his FishOutOfWater brother Kevin, an OddCouple forced to share a loft apartment in a [[QuirkyTown quirky downtown neighborhood]]. 18 episodes were scheduled, but only 13 were created before the show's cancellation. Two of the last five unfinished episodes exist as animatic storyboards and three were released as scripts only.

* Voice actor TomKenny's take on one-off character Jimmy Briskin, a diminutive actor who played an Ewok in ''ReturnOfTheJedi'', landed him another job: the titular character of ''SpongebobSquarepants''. (He even repurposed the Jimmy Briskin voice as Spongebob's.)

''Mission Hill'' initially aired on TheWB (along with two other short-lived cartoons: ''WesternAnimation/TheOblongs'' and the animated adaptation of ''BabyBlues''), but the show didn't fit in for a network that had branded itself as, in the words of the show's creators (former ''Simpsons'' showrunners Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein), "the teenage girl network." The show received a minor revival on Creator/AdultSwim thanks to that network rebroadcasting it, including the completed episodes that never aired on The WB.

* BitingTheHandHumor: Andy during his time on ''TheRealWorld'' quips to the producers, "You think I'm MTV material? I'm not even WB material!" The gag goes two ways, as not only is this a burn on The WB and its crummy programming, but ''Mission Hill'' was originally pitched to MTV, but MTV already had ''WesternAnimation/{{Downtown}}'' (which forced ''Mission Hill'' to abandon its original title, ''The Downtowners'') and ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'' and passed up on ''Mission Hill''.
