heres a message from Chris P. creator of the show.

Hey Everybody-

I got the definitive word last week that Disney won't be picking up a second season of Motorcity. I want to thank you guys for doing such an amazing job on this series. Everyone on the crew stepped up to an unbelievable degree. I feel like we did exactly what we set out to do - push the quality of television animation and deliver a show that's never been seen before. You guys are the greatest, most talented crew I've had the pleasure to work with. It's my sincere goal to continue to stretch the boundaries of animation with every one of you on many projects in the future!

Thank you so much for your incredibly hard work and passion. It shows in every frame.

Thanks again,
Chris P

Titmouse will always be making new shows that are more fun and fresh that those who only care about ratings and money. still few episodes left. enjoy! Motorcity forever.

be cool.

dont cry.

UPDATE: THIS JUST CAME IN. every little bit would help. If Titmouse could still own the rights to MC, then there's still hope.

I think it would of been more popular in Cartoon Network or Nickelodeon. Not a lot of people I know have cable, so they can't watch the show.

WHAAAAAAAAAAT?
no way no how-the heck.?
you are telling me that Disney is keeping those BS cartoons with the retarded messages and is cancelling this awesome cartoon MOTOR-CITY which reminded us of the awesome quality that existed only back at the 80's-90's cartoons such as Gargoyles-Mighty Ducks and such(Disney related)AND THEY F*^%ING STOPPING IT??
WHY?
This is wrong-this cartoon is awesome because:
-The Duke of Detroit(Diva with a capital D and we love it)
-there is heavy metal and punk without being overdo(its for kids so good job making it smooth ;p )
-some rough quality which reminded us a bit of GORILLAZ and you know its true!(Mike Chilton is like Murdoc!)
-There is Mike-Chuckles-Julie-Dutch-Texas-Jacob-Duke of Detroit-Bubbs-Rayon and all the others!
-There are muscle cars made by 3d programs for even more great quality with fantastic paint-jobs and cool names-seriously Stronghorn is like my favorite!TEXASIFY!!!!
-And that dark quality and aura that gives you the chills and excitement.
-the plot of the characters!
-The Sci-fi like features.
-AAAnd the Duke of Detroit-seriously i love him!he is like ...... cheesecake-red with syrup and berry,white with cream and crunchy biscuit hair.
EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!
WHY DID YOU CUT IIIIT DISNEY???!and i dont even watch it on tv-i wait my ass off(cause i dont have freaking nova) to see it online and while waiting i re watch all the episodes again and again because its fun!!!
Do something!!!!!make them pay-eat their muffins in their disney princess fridges!
WE LOVE MOTORCITY!I DEMAND SATISFACTION!(and btw i did the link so i hope titmaouse take MC back)
good luck!!!!

They apparently only count the tv ratings in this day n age. They dont even promote their own shows n leak them before airing date

That is so stupid of them.
Everybody knows that TV doesn't pay these days-AT ALL!
Even my 5 year old nephew is sitting on his fathers PC and he is watching Dragon Ball cause TV just doesn't air it anymore!and he is 5years ooold!talk about modern generation.

But if you take back the rights from Disney-i know you are in the Titmouse(thank god you are in Deviant art) so please say this to the creator and the guys that worked their butts and hands off(including you)!
-When u take Motorcity back- Air it mostly on the internet,have a site that shows the episodes all motorcity related ,make some merchandise like dolls or plushies and have it all to yourselves!
It's a shame to toss such a wonderful cartoon!I am trying to be an animator myself-i know the hardships of both 2d and 3d and i am in a country that people when they want to say "cartoon" they don't say it with the horology "cartoon",they call it "Micky Mouse".Every cartoon for them has the name Micky mouse!
So freaking messed up!
(BTW thank u so much for replying back i really appreciate it and also its an honor to "meet" you.Have faith the last time i checked there where 6.767 votes;p )

This show had the most amazing and unique animation I've ever seen from an American animation studio. How can they not get another season on such an outstanding show? Everything else seems the same to me when this was so different. Things like this make me cry.

Disney can go suck my balls. It's amazing how Disney can keep airing new seasons of shitty stuff like Phineas and Ferb, but they can't fucking accept to have a second season of a series with not only flawless animation and art in general, but with great concept and pretty damn good teachings as well.

Maybe you'll get better luck with Nick. It's not as crowded with stupid kids as Disney is.

Anyways, thank you for doing such a wonderful series. I hope you can keep creating more series as awesome as Motorcity.

Just posted this on Dadward's page...

Oh NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

This.... has just ruined my day and I can't believe it! Disney, WTF????

I can't begin to imagine how you guys and Chris and everyone who has worked on this show must be feeling right now, but I know I'm really sad, angry and a whole bunch of other things

Just.... this is terrible. I'm so sorry, but I want you to know that I have loved and appreciated every single moment of this show, the people who make it and the fandom that has surrounded it.

This is a fucking tragedy. And it's too late, I'm truly very very dismayed and sad.

I have an idea we must write letters to diney to bring back MOTROCITY we must keep on fighting and showed them we love that show…when lupin III tv series got canceled and star treck tv series got canceled however fans watched reruns and the show came back and became stronger and more awesome ..we could do the same thing for motorcity we will bring it back!we must send letters not emails.

Good job Disney....GREAT FREAKING JOB. :iconruncryplz:

:( What a shame. Motorcity is one of the best cartoons I've seen.

I wonder if any other producers will reach out to continue the series, though, or if that's even possible. I think that the show would be more at home on Cartoon Network or Nickelodeon.
