Of all of Cartoon Network's original series in the last decade, Megas XLR may in fact be one of the most beloved, if only because it was around for just a short time, and today, fans are craving for its return.
The title robot is a futuristic weapon sent into the past to stay out of the hands of the Glorft. However, the Megas and its then-pilot, Kiva, wind up too far back into the past, then find themselves in the then present in New Jersey, where Kiva meets Coop (David DeLuise), a video game loving slacker, who tricks out Megas, such that now only he can pilot it, with Kiva providing advice from the backseat.
In the course of the series' lone year of existence, it parodied Sailor Moon and, in a pair of separate tales, an amalgamation of Gatchaman & Power Rangers, going so far as to bring in 2 of the American actors from Battle of the Planets, Ronnie Schell & Alan Young, to guest star. I wish that episode, "Bad Guy", was available on YouTube, but it isn't intact right now. Maybe someday.........
Anyway, here's the open:
CN didn't know what a fan favorite they had, and they let it slip away. Typical.
