Thursday Cartoon Intro - SHERLOCK HOLMES IN THE 22ND CENTURY


Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century is a perfect example of how the quality of action-adventure cartoons took a nose-dive in the late 90s. Crap like this is what led to Spongebob Squarepants, Power Puff Girls and Total Drama Island rising to the top in the late 90s, early 2000s. Since then, networks only seem to be interested in showing comedy-driven cartoons... not including the Marvel, DC and Clone Wars action cartoons. I guess I shouldn't be so hard on 22nd Century Sherlock. I haven't actually seen the show, but the concept and intro is so half-assed, it makes some of the D-list cartoons of the 80s look like works by Shakespeare. 26 episodes of Sherlock were produced in 1999 and aired on Fox Kids. Many of the stories were direct adaptations of some of Arthur Conan Doyle's original stories. The only DVD produced for the series is a now out-of-print DVD. Alternatively, you can watch all of the series through Amazon. Currently, there are no plans to release the entire series on DVD.
