    and by underrated i also mean misused...i'd nominate;

    1. undergrads. this is a cartoon with adult humor added in(amongst the juvenile stuff here and there)-this could've been huge. it had endearing, appealing lovable characters. the every-man in nitz, the geek in gimpy, the voic acting was hilarious, the stories were original and unique. kids ot adults could relate to this, if only mtv had used it properly. they gave it NO promotion, and put it in the stupidest time slot possible. this show could've been huge, but sadly only something like 11 or 12 episodes were ever made. this is one of the rare tv shows, cartoon or not, that people don't get sick of watching more than once.( www.undergrads.tv )

    2. clone high. this was an ascquired taste perhaps but if you liked it, you loved it-it was hilarious. the basic premise was a high school full of kids cloned from the genes of histories biggest names. jfk, ghandi, etc. sounds dumb but they pulled it off perfectly-there is no character i don't like. this show fucking rocked and if they managed and promoted it properly it could've been great. the episode about smoking raisins was better than any simpsons episode in the past 5 years. ( www.clone-high.com )

    3. mission hill. too lazy to explain the others. i'll just give websites. ( missionhill.tripod.com )

    4. the brak show ( www.adultswim.com/shows/brak )

    5. aqua teen hunger force. this isn't higher because it's not as great as people say and while it's underrated it's still mroe appreciated than the other 4 i listed.

    download some of these off of kazaa or ares or whatever you're using

    clone high was nice. they should definitely bring that back.

    i haven't even heard of undergrads.

    aqua teen hunger force is not at all underrated....if anything, i think it's overrated.

    sealab 2021 is defintely more underrated than athf....especially the seasons before capt. murphy died, those were the best. it's still good though.

    the brak show is dope...sometimes. the dad is hilarious.

    Undergrads was on MTV a couple years back, didnt last to long. Then they showed it on comedy central for awhile..

    but yeah it was a good show..got the dvd of the series

    clone high dvd is coming out but only in Canada I think...

    3 South was great, i recently acquired the 3 unaired episodes and they are hilarious...

    yeah sealab is great, i like it a lot more then aqua teen...cant wait for season 3 to come out in July, still need to get season 1...

    downtown i think it was called, it was on MTV for a little bit. I liked it

    station zero, it was on MTV also. Lasted only a month. I got most of episodes, I like going back and watching it sometimes.

    Yeah, Dilbert was great.


    The Completely Mental Misadventures of Ed Grimley is possibly the most underrated cartoon show I've ever seen. They used to show it on Cartoon Network where I am about ten years ago. Brilliant... And it disappeared quickly without a trace.
