I remember an old cartoon from my childhood called The Pirates of Dark Water. It was about a planet where an entity made of Black Sludge was destroying the oceans (perhaps a reference to oil spills.) The main characters were collecting gems to try and stop the creature and save the world. Oh yeah, and there was a monkey bird. If this sounds familiar, I was wondering if the show was ever completed or if it is available or can be seen online somewhere.
The show was never completed. The 21 episodes that were completed were released on Amazon in 2010 (to mixed reviews - lots of positive, but also lots of complaints about the disc quality).
However, according to the Wiki:
In November 1991, Marvel Comics produced a comic book series based on the show. Originally intended as a six-part limited series, it was extended to nine issues to include a three-part original story.
The comic books can be found on Amazon if you are interested.
