Pitch Pilot

In 2005, series animator Amy MacDonald uploaded early concept art of the characters from a promotional bible all with slightly different designs (and a detailed description of who they are) to her portfolio, she mentioned that the artwork was used to help pitch the show to PBS at a pilot stage.[1] This has speculated that an early pilot for the series was developed and pitched the show to the network.[2]


So far no footage or any other material from the pilot has resurfaced as the only mention comes from the portfolio, It's unknown if MacDonald meant there was an actual animated pilot or the artwork was just made for the pitch bible. As of 2024 no other information is available.
