Mikey as he appeared in the pilot.

Kappa Mikey was an animated comedy series that aired on Nicktoons Network from 2006 to 2008, with a short-lived Nickelodeon run as well. The show centered around a teenage American male named Mikey Simon, who wins a trip to Japan to star in an anime series named LilyMu. The show was an affectionate parody of anime and Japanese culture, and had a unique style of animation blending; Japanese people were portrayed in an anime artstyle, while American people were portrayed in a western-animated artstyle.

The series soon become a cult classic following its cancellation, but some are unaware of the original MTV pilot. The MTV incarnation was geared toward older audiences, with more adult humor, but the original voice actors still had the same parts. According to Tumblr user Kaiko-Art, the pilot had different characterization, different animation, and a hip-hop soundtrack.

MTV declined the deal, and Nickelodeon took over the project. Only a few pictures and information of the pilot existed, untill July 26th, 2017, when the series' executive producer Sergei Aniskov uploaded the full pilot on his YouTube channel. It has temporary voiceovers and music in the pilot, but otherwise it is the orginial pilot.

This version probably would have been interesting to see, I loved this cartoon when it was on its initial run on Nicktoons Network.

I recently watched a video by LSuperSonicQ. He said that he knew one of the admins on the Kappa Mikey Reddit page. The admin said they had contacted someone who worked on Kappa Mikey and said they had the pilot on VHS. Here is the video: https://www....=QNcsFJuZJrU. The part where he talks about the pilot is at 41:49.
