As much as Cartoon Network has gotten bashed for some idiotic decisions, such as the development of live-action programming under current network boss Stuart Snyder, they really missed the bus by rejecting a proposed revival of Plastic Man, co-produced & developed by and starring comic Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants).
Kenny and creative partners Andy Suriano and Stephen DiStefano, the latter a veteran comic book writer/artist who cut his teeth at DC in the early 80's, created a pastiche of artistic styles, mixing together the familiar, left-of-center designs of John Kricfalusi (ex-Ren & Stimpy), Jack Cole (Plas' creator), & Kyle Baker, who wrote & drew a Plastic Man miniseries for DC a few years back. Fellow funnyman Dave Coulier (ex-Full House) voices Plas' parole officer, Archie. Now, sit back and take a look, and let me know if CN really did screw up this time.......
The way I see it, had CN bought the pilot, given the mature humor, this would've been ticketed for [adult swim]. Luckily for us and for Tom Kenny, Plas would eventually land on CN as a frequent guest on Batman: The Brave & the Bold, with nods to the classic comics (Woozy Winks would make his TV debut) and the 1979-81 ABC series.
