D'Myna Leagues (partially found second season of Canadian animated series; 2000s)
D'Myna Leagues is a Canadian animated series produced by Studio B and distributed by Sony Pictures Television, which premiered between January 6, 2001, and May 18, 2002, on CTV. The series revolved around a baseball team of birds known as the Mynas, who are frequently sabotaged by a fat cat named Radcliffe, who wants to demolish their baseball stadium and make it into an amusement park.
The series ran for 26 half-hour episodes, broadcast over two seasons. The first season premiered on CTV between January 6 and March 31, 2001. Season 2 aired on the channel between February 23 and May 18, 2002. While the first season was released on home video and is available online, the later episodes suffer from limited availability, with no official release.
D'Myna Leagues also aired on BBC Kids and YTV in Canada; The WB 100+ Station Group in the United States, Cadenatres in Mexico, RTL Klub in Hungary, and TV Nova in the Czech Republic. A few episodes played at Baltimore Orioles and Houston Astros baseball games during the 2003 and 2004 MLB seasons.
YouTube user DangerousVHS has uploaded twelve episodes of Season 2 in Czech, as well as one in English.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- In the broadcast logs submitted to the CRTC by CTV, the show's episode titles are not shared. Given the episode numbers listed, it appears the channel aired the second season out of production order. No episode guides, including the one from the series' official site, list "A Starling is Born" as the twenty-fifth episode, nor the fourth episode of season 2. It's therefore difficult to discern which episodes the other dates refer to.
