The Noids is a Saturday morning cartoon that was cancelled in 1988. It would've starred the character "Noid" from Domino's Pizza.

Premise[edit | edit source]

The show would have featured a group of Noids, engaged in various situations designed to underscore the characters' inclination to misadventure.[1]

The original Noid character was famously animated in claymation, but it seems improbable that this medium would have been retained for a TV animated series, considering it is very time-consuming and is most likely to have been traditional 2D.

Cancellation[edit | edit source]

The show was meant to air in the 1988-89 fall schedule on CBS.

However, the project was cancelled amid complaints that it was merely an advertising ploy and unsuitable as a show for children, not unlike Yo! It's the Chester Cheetah Show.

Additionally, the infamous Kenneth Lamar Noid incident, where Noid held up a Domino's restaurant under the assumption the mascot was made to specifically mock him, has likely sealed the show's fate forever.

No other information on the show has surfaced.

Surfaced Content[edit | edit source]

On September 28th, 2009, artist John Kricfalusi uploaded a piece of production artwork he made for the show alongside artwork he did for various other shows.[2]
