|Screenshot of the pilot|
A CGI-animated pilot episode for The Backyardigans (then titled Backyardigans) was produced in 2002. It was based upon another declined pilot from 1998 called Me and My Friends.
Little is known about the pilot, though some footage is found within the two minutes of the video that can be found here (which has been deleted). Some screenshots do exist. Also of note is that Austin the Kangaroo seems to be completely absent, even from concept art.
