Empire Square (partially found animated series; mid-2000s)
|Boxart of the first series.|
Empire Square (or Empire Sq.) was an animated TV series written by comedian Matt Morgan and animated in a "pixelated" style. It originated in the United Kingdom where it is broadcast on Channel 4 late at night on Fridays. Around 2005-2006, American music network Fuse TV aired full length half hour episodes as opposed to the two to four minute ones in the UK.
The plot to Empire Square could be seen as a mix of South Park and a more raunchy Edd, Ed, 'n' Eddy, as episodes typically center around three kids named Ritchie, Rabbit, and Hooks going about their day while trying to come up with get-rich-quick schemes, occasionally starting bands, and generally getting into trouble.
Despite its apparent cult following, little footage or info on the show is available, with only one of the show's 12 episodes available online along with a "promo" for the series from Binside TV. However, a listing for the first series can be found on Amazon.
