Mission Hill Frequently Asked Questions
Last updated December 11, 2005
'Mission Hill' is an animated series from Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein, former executive producers of 'The Simpsons.'
The show is about Andy French, a cartoonist living in the fictional city of Cosmopolis, in a neighborhood called 'Mission Hill' with his roommates Jim and Posey. One day his nerdy younger brother Kevin moves in with him, much to his chagrin, and the show chronicles his life from that point on.
As of right now, Mission Hill is off the air in Canada (where it was shown on Teletoon), and it's unknown if that will ever change. Right now (as of May 18, 2004), the Cartoon Network is showing Mission Hill on its Adult Swim block, Sundays at 1 AM and 4 AM Eastern/Pacific time.
There were thirteen half-hour episodes in Mission Hill's first and only season. Additionally there were five complete, but unproduced scripts. You can read the scripts here.
Umm...not exactly. It premiered on the WB network at the beginning of the 1999/2000 season, but then after two episodes the show was put on 'hiatus', with plans for it to return later.
Then, in the summer of 2000, the show returned to the WB, but then it was canceled for good after about a month. Thirteen episodes were produced of the show but only six were ever seen on the WB.
And the critics were not overly kind to the show either. From what I can tell it received mostly negative reviews, except from Variety.
Well, I really enjoy the show, and I realized there are no fan sites about it. I figured it might be fun to try and fill that void.
Go to Mission Hill's official website. I'll also be producing some more wallpaper on this site, so check the 'Multimedia' section regularly for updates.
From various internet sites, including the show's official website and the IMDB.
No, and it's unknown if that will ever change. The show is quite expensive to produce, and due to its poor performance on the WB it may not look economically viable to a major network, and it would be out of the price range of a cable network like Comedy Central, where the budgets are lower than network shows. It should also be noted that most networks don't seem to have faith in prime-time animated TV shows lately, with the WB completely focusing away from it.
It is possible that if its run on the Cartoon Network is extremely popular that it would experience a revitalization.
Yes. The DVD set of the first season was released on November 29, 2005 and is available in stores and online.
Besides the DVD set, there is some other products that were made for the show's crew. Some of it was even sold on the Mission Hill group on Yahoo. This was all made in very limited quantities and are no longer available. There were T-shirts, mugs, stickers and more. However there was no mass-market merchandise available, but some fans have made their own merchandise. You can view images of the official merchandise in the Images section of this site.
You can also purchase fan-made merchandise at the Mission Hill Online Store.
