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.

  • Originally, this was a mini-series done on FOX. It only last about 5 episodes. It was then picked up as a regular series. Sadly, it ended without explenation about about 21 episodes.

  • @Hoytman - After all this time? Probably not. Apr 11, 2014 at 17:00
  • Do you know if there are scripts or comics of the show available?

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.
