Discoveries[edit | edit source]
Before April 3rd, 2015, this was one of three pilots of the Big Pick of 2001 that had not resurfaced anywhere on the internet. The only footage that could be found was featured in this segment of the Big Pick Weekend.
However, it was rumored that the pilot aired on Latin channel Tooncast, thus it was very unlikely that the pilot would be in English. The rumors proved true when, on April 3rd, 2015, MEGA user "adroceblaz" uploaded Major Flake, IMP, Inc., and several other shorts to his own page. The pilots were all in Spanish, as previously indicated by earlier rumors.
On April 14th, 2015, a user by the name of Ben Middleton shared an English version of Major Flake.
