was a programming block from Cartoon Network
that ran on the weekday after-school slot from 2004 to 2007, when it died ingloriously and was briefly replaced by Master Control. Created by Cartoon Network’s Williams Street division, the folks that brought us Toonami
and [adult swim]
, it was created to be a lighter-toned successor to Toonami
(while Toonami itself was reconfigured to a Saturday night block), running action shows from America, France, and Japan.
The animated hostess here was Erin
, a young CGI
girl with black hair and a yellow jumpsuit who, at the start of the block, was transported underwater and into a sunken alien spaceship by an enormous red fish. There, she chills out and watches the shows along with a group of mutant sea creatures and robots, none of whom speaks but all of whom have rudimentary personalities.
The block began as a sort of Replacement Scrappy
, having been brought in to appease the kids after Toonami was booted off the time slot and moved to Saturday nights, where it kept on going for four years before its heartwarming finale. Although it was originally not very popular, especially with longtime Cartoon Network
fans, Miguzi grew on viewers soon enough, especially because it ran popular shows like Teen Titans
as well as having introduced new "classics" such as Code Lyoko
and Totally Spies!
was notorious for changing its programming at any moment's notice. Here are some of the shows they ran.
