"OK K.O.!" Creators Almost Pitched a Mega Man Crossover


From Captain Planet to Sonic the Hedgehog, Cartoon Network's wonderfully quirky "O.K! Let's Be Heroes" is no stranger to pop-culture crossovers. Had the show gone on longer we may have seen even more dream team-ups. One idea that was nearly pitched a few years ago, in fact, featured the show's titular K.O. meeting Mega Man himself!


Executive producer Toby Jones took to Twitter to show fans a simple, but entertaining animatic that was intended to be shown to prospective companies and creators who might be interested in crossing their properties over with OK K.O.! It was never finished nor actually used for its intended purpose. However, what is here is super interesting and ignites one's imagination:

The general rule of thumb was "two crossovers" per season. So had the show lasted longer, we could have very well seen a "Let's Meet Mega Man" episode. Oh, what could have been!

Thanks for the tip, Tekki!

  3. Surprised they didn’t get Space Ghost as Cartoon Network owns him too.

    2. I find it hilarious that you still haven't answered Blue Donut's question yet. It's pretty obvious that you just dislike Japanese video game characters put into animations developed in North America.
