    Would it be successful? I can see it doing decently.
    Would it be good? No.
    Also there's a high chance everyone would drop it once they realize how shitty it is.

    It's literally as soulless as Space Jam 2, nothing more than just a massive Collab slop

      This. It was just more "what if everything owned by this company... WAS PART OF THE SAME MULTIVERSE???" as if that hasn't been done to death already.

    It would only work if instead of a mass of glitchy shadow goop terrorizing shows it would be a huge marauder army of various creatures in diffrent unique Flash artstyles from simple critters and midgets to edgelord berserkers in red and spooky monsters all united because they are flash animations

      >a horde of shitty, cheap, poorly animated knockoff Flash characters are trying to break free from their godawful "spiderman loves elsa" style universe and into the greater cartoon universe
      >Pibby's reality is the one in the GCU where the walls are the thinnest, so that's their attempted entry point
      >after a few violent run-ins with flash mobs, Pibby realizes she needs help and goes on a Seven Samurai style quest to round up an army of famous characters from other cartoons before the horde breaks through the veil and overruns the GCU

      I'd probably watch that, yeah.

        I was thinking more of like flash animations based on shit like newgrounds but that can also work to, diffrent types of flash animation tribes and cliques with their own motives, some want to find greener pastures to conquer, others just want to have fun by causing mayhem to the worlds full of normality

    I'd give it a 6 episode long mini series. With one of those episodes featuring uncle grandpa getting corrupted

    It would catch attention for a while, but eventually even the novelty of cameos would wear off because there's so much you can do with a giant wad of glitching with random cartoon character heads here and there.
    And because I imagine a bunch of the people involved with CN, Hannah Barbera and Looney Tunes would probably throw a b***hfit about letting their IPs getting killed unceremoniously.

    As a six-to-eight-episode miniseries, sure. Make it an event.

    It would be absolutely shit as an actual show considering what we now know about it. Mini-series at best.

    Only if it had good writers, which are basically nonexistent in this modern age.

    Pibby as a concept cannot stand unless it has other IP's propping it up. The issue is CN in its current state is 100% in Tax Write Off mode and any IP that has some value to it isn't gonna be wasted on this sink of swim project

    See Harvey Birdman was a different concept because Harvey Birdman is a Hannah Barbera IP being repurposed into something fresh. Same with Space Ghost. With Harvey Birdman all the other crossover characters in that show are also owned by Hannah Barbera and this was back when Boomerang was where all those old IP's got sent off to when CN started investing into actual cartoons

    Pibby is an original idea that needs established brands in order to tell its story. Now, if I were the CEO of AS I'd happily let Pibby use the entire Hannah Barbera library because literally no one cares about that boomer shit. The moment Libby starts asking for other established AS shows and Toonami IP's is entirely different and the answer is gonna be hard no. I could maybe suggest characters like Squidbillies, Aqua Teen and even Smiling Friends since all those shows lean deep into absurdism anyway but that would require entire meetings on his each Ep would be written about Pibby.

      Pibby should change the concept a bit, instead of actual existing ips they make up ones like they did with alloy boy and melira

        No, metatextual stories like this requires pre-existing characters to better give their settings and new characters a sense of legitimacy, like with Roger Rabbit and Wreck-It Ralph. Without them, you get forgettable slop like Kappa Mikey.

    It'd be fun as a one-shot miniseries, and then if WB knew what they had they'd be merchandising the hell out of it.

    Not particularly. People are starting to get tired of crossovers; they were novel back when a good number of license holders were handing that shit out loosely and creators were making passion projects, or in the era where they started clamping down on what they had and would hold on for deal life, but now that companies own enough varied IPs to have sizeable interior crossovers, the allure has been wrung out by being overdone.

    Scrape out the crossovers and it's something that's honestly a bit too childish for Adult Swim. The whole thing with corrupting a children's show to have to be dark and gritty, the sidekick and villainess having to step into the role of being heroes, and the enemy ultimately being the personification of irony that needs to corrupt and twist shows to interact with them--effectively holding up a surface-level mirror to the audience--is 100% the kind of shit that Young Adult book readers age 12-16 would love and hold up as art. At this point, Adult Swim is slowly yet rightfully returning to moronic humor targeting male audiences age 14-17 and 21-35, so it just wouldn't find a crowd to show to.

    Maybe as a one time miniseries, not as a continuing show.

      Maybe Pibby would been mocked and shunned earlier in that scenario.

    The idea is fine, but it'd definitely need to:
    A. Be picked up by a huge corporation with a bazillion IPs to work off of, then just use theirs
    B. Rework all the corrupted cartoons into being parodies (and parody EVERYTHING)
    or
    C. Make it a Halloween special, maybe a two-parter, and just beg whoever they can to get the rights for it, even if it's just a handful of old shows plus one recent one the team had to spend big bucks for
    My vote's B, as the main characters are already based off existing things, and companies are a pain in the dick when it comes to including their IPs in a show, and I imagine it'd be legal hell and writing hell to get them in under whatever rules they set.

    I love the idea of a world-hopping band of randos traveling through various media as everything gets corrupted, either taken seriously or as a parody of all the mascot horror everyone's doing.
    The only thing I don't like about it is that I hate the trope of "invincible villain who wins 100% of the time (until it doesn't)" because it just means there's gonna be some "I WIN" button that Pibby's gonna find two episodes before the series finale, and she'll either instawin with it or it wont work and instead the power of friendship saves the day instead.
