The Ark (partially lost pilot of animated series; 2002)
The Ark is a Canadian animated comedy pilot. The show was created by Richard Condie (director of The Big Snit) produced by Nelvana, and directed by Dave Thomas. It aired in 2002 on CBC in Canada and on 2x2 TV in Russia.
The show depicts a post-apocalyptic world where most of the civilization is lost under high oceans. It follows Willard and his family on the ark, the vessel for survivors of the apocalypse, through a surreal, absurd landscape.
The pilot has not resurfaced in full online. The only portions available online are those from a demo reel published by Patrick Godfrey (the composer of Bob and Margaret) but later the demo reel was clipped by an online user Loana Lalonde. The rest of the pilot may exist in the possession of the show's owners.
