The Noids (cancelled Domino's Pizza mascot-based animated series; 1988)
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.
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.
