'''''The Groovenians''''' was a half-hour CGI television special created by surrealist painter Kenny Scharf. It served as a failed pilot to a potential series that never came into fruition and aired on Creator/CartoonNetwork only twice, the first time being on the Creator/AdultSwim block and the second time being on the "Fridays" block. After a 2003 nomination Annie Award for Best Animated Short Subject, the short was never heard from again. The cast features Creator/PaulReubens as the main character Jet, Drena [=DeNiro=] ([[RobertDeNiro Robert]]'s daughter) as Glindy, Dennis Hopper in the dual role of the father and the villainous King Norman and Jeff Bennett as Suavo. The B-52s contributed the titular theme while Mutato Muzika composed the music and the "Money Song". Jordan Reichek of ''VideoGame/CrashTwinsanity'' fame co-wrote the story, served as the production designer and drew the storyboard.

* DesignatedVillain: The parents and Norman. While Norman is meant to be greedy and the parents are [[{{Jerkass}} Jerkasses]] to their children, they didn't have anything to gain from bringing realism into Jet and Mindy's lives.
