Thread: The Never Produced Doctor Who Cartoon

  1. #1

    The Never Produced Doctor Who Cartoon

    I was browsing Wikipedia today and found this piece of art, the only I have ever seen, of the un-produced DW cartoon. Animation was suppossed to be from Nelvanna, known for the Boba Fett short in the Star Wars Holiday Special, Droids, and the feature Rock & Rule. This is the only artwork I have ever seen connected to the project. The Doctor is unspecified but appears to be Tom Bakers,(tho the hair is different).

    He looks like a combo of a few Doctors --- I see Jon Perwee in him too.

    Hat looks like a 70's pimp hat

    I have another cel from this, got it from a Nelvana guy, the Doctor looks more like Egon and his coat has a big stupid question mark on it. I should go dig it out.

    Yea, he really does look like Egon in that.

    Not liking it at all.

    The only thing that looks unchanged is the TARDIS

    The first pic has a Heavy Metal look to it.

    might have been interesting but considering the rest of the animation coming out in those days it probably would have sucked arse

    Thanks Brian! These are really interesting to look at.

    Some of the conceptual art looks rough, yes, like Heavy Metal The Movie. But Nelvanna usually turns out quality animation. I'm not keen on the differences from the TV series but I think it would have won me over. Their cartoons do have some charm. They also made a Christmas special I can't recall the name off it where 3 aliens visit Earth for Christmas and it was pretty good too.

    looking at the K9 and "Dalek" concepts I can see why this never got off the ground. I did like the cyberman concept though, I have to say the style does look vey much that in heavy metal, and starchaser, but I like that style, I could see how a new animated series would work like this though.
