PILOTS Who Never Made IT.
Quick definition of Pilot:
"A television pilot (also known as a "pilot", "pilot episode", and "series premiere") is a standalone episode of a television series that is used to sell the show to a television network. At the time of its creation, the pilot is meant to be the testing ground to gauge if a series will be successful, and is therefore a test episode of an intended television series. It is an early step in the development of a television series, much like pilot lights or pilot studies serve as precursors to the start of larger activity, or pilot holes prepare the way for larger holes. Television networks use pilots to discover whether an entertaining concept can be successfully realized. After seeing this sample of the proposed product, networks will then determine whether the expense of additional episodes is justified. They are best thought of as prototypes of the show that is to follow, because elements often change from pilot to series. Variety estimates that only a little over a quarter of all pilots made for American television proceed to the series stage, although the figure may be even lower.
Most pilots are never publicly screened if they fail to sell a series. If a series eventuates, pilots are usually – but not always – broadcast as the introductory episode of the series."
So recently i watched two animated pilots who never made it in to the sohw right,but are so funny and nicely made its a real shame. Below are first parts of shows,you can post others.

Sometimes I wake up at 3am in a cold sweat, thinking about everything that happened to make this exist. Why.

I was once in a test audience for a sitcom pilot. It was based around a horse racing track and was fucking terrible. Given the nature of the average show that does make it past the pilot phase, you can no doubt imagine just how excruciating it was to watch.
