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. – PiousVenom Apr 10 '14 at 21:07
  • Rats, no hope for an ending? – Hoytman Apr 10 '14 at 21:11
  • @Hoytman - After all this time? Probably not. – System Down Apr 11 '14 at 17:00
  • Do you know if there are scripts or comics of the show available? – Hoytman Apr 11 '14 at 17:18

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.
