Shows that might become future comics
  • The Roman Holidays
    • The Darker and Edgier premise will be that it is actually set in an Alternate History where the Roman Empire never fell and instead conquered a massive portion of the world. The Holidays live in a city that is part of the empire's colonies in North America. Gus and his family live normal lives until a tyrant takes over and the empire begins to crumble around them.
  • Top Cat
    • The premise will be that the gang of cats are now a far more morally dubious street gang in a cesspool of a city where only a few hapless cops, including Dibble, are standing in the way of crime. The thing that makes us root for the gang is that this is a world of Fantastic Racism by a majority of normal humans against a minority of anthropomorphic cats and possibly other Funny Animal species. It will be filled with Does This Remind You of Anything? regarding the modern racial tensions and highly publicized Police Brutality present in the modern United States.
  • Speed Buggy
    • The premise is that the characters are reimagined as fugitives of a fascist government in a dystopian America. Tinker is an Edward Snowden inspired figure who exposed that the government was spying on people through cameras hidden in their cars, Mark is a Native American activist who was tortured for protecting his tribe's private land from wealthy land developers, and Debbie was part of the unwilling harem of the President for Life who helped Tinker and Mark escape in exchange for protection. Speed Buggy is an upgrade on the spy cars that gained sentience thanks to a glitch in his programming, who the three use as their getaway vehicle. The four now evade capture as best they can until they can find a way to get out of the country and seek asylum, while various criminals from the show try to capture them in exchange for immunity from the law.
  • Moby Dick
    • The premise is that Tom and Tub are child spies during the Cold War who infiltrate a soviet submarine, which inadvertently breaks down. Tom and Tub awake in an undersea facility where the soviets were heading, where they find a captured whale who has been experimented upon to be a hyper-intelligent super weapon. They use the whale to return to safety on land, but find that they activated a cybernetic implant in its brain when they did so, causing it to imprint on them as its masters. The two learn that they were comatose for a very long time...and that they were taken to the facility rather than having swam there. The two use the whale, dubbed Moby Dick, to discover what really happened under the sea.
  • The Biskitts
  • The Amazing Chan and the Chan Clan
    • The premise is that Charlie Chan is hired by the United States government to investigate a conspiracy...and ends up getting killed. His children, who are all a couple years older than in the show (implying it is canonical in some way), team up together to avenge his death.
  • Yogi Bear
    • The premise is that Jellystone Park is a national park that has turned into a hellhole due to an oil pipeline that unleashed dark magic energy trapped beneath the land. It is now ruled by monstrous bears who have gained human qualities and eat humans to maintain these qualities. The Ranger Smith of this is part of a military unit that keeps the bears at bay, who discovers three innocent bears, Yogi, Boo Boo and Cindy, who carry the secret to sedating their kind.
  • Hong Kong Phooey
  • Punkin' Puss and Mushmouse

Shows that HAVE to become future comics

Shows that CANNOT become future DC comics
  • Josie and the Pussycats
    • Extremely unlikely, since Josie and the Pussycats is an Archie Comics property and appear in their own comics.
  • The Smurfs
    • Sony seems to have the monopoly on the Smurfs franchise.
  • The Completely Mental Misadventures of Ed Grimley
    • It's impossible to reboot a cartoon based on a SNL/SCTV character... I must say!
  • Challenge Of The Go Bots
    • Tonka was bought out by Hasbro, which would, ironically, house the GoBots with the Transformers.
  • Pretty much any cartoon that H-B did that was based on toys like Monchhichis and Pound Puppies.
  • Cow and Chicken
    • IDW probably still has the rights to make classic Cartoon Network shows into comics like they did with Dexter's Laboratory and classic and reboot Powerpuff Girls... sorry 793ws!

How well does it match the trope?
