The Noids is a cancelled 1988 Saturday morning cartoon based on the "Noid" character featured in the Domino's Pizza commercials in the mid-late 1980's.

Premise

The show would have featured a group of Noids, engaged in various situations designed to underscore the characters' inclination to misadventure.[1]

The original Noid character was famously animated in claymation, but it seems improbable that this medium would have been retained for a TV animated series, considering it is very time-consuming, and is most likely to have been traditional 2D.

Cancellation

The show was meant to air in the 1988-89 fall schedule on CBS.

However, the project was cancelled amid complaints that it was merely an advertising ploy and unsuitable as a show for children, not unlike Yo! It's the Chester Cheetah Show.

Additionally, the infamous Kenneth Lamar Noid incident, where Noid held up a Domino's restaurant under the assumption the mascot was made to specifically mock him, has likely sealed the show's fate forever.

No other information of the show has surfaced.
