Rein-Toon-Ation: Stargate Infinity (2002)

Even though MGM, which had the syndicated Stargate SG-1 airing in primetime and on cable's Sci-Fi Channel (now SyFy), also co-produced the animated Stargate Infinity with DIC for Fox & 4Kids in 2002, the series is not considered part of the Stargate canon. Hmmmmmmm. A certain amount of disconnect seems to be involved. The fact that Infinity was cancelled after 1 season might have something to do with MGM suddenly deciding to disconnect it from the rest of the franchise, but we don't know that for sure.

Fox had Infinity leading off their first year Fox Box block, programmed by 4Kids, which clearly didn't know how to properly set the table, if ya will. Rightfully, Inifnity should've been placed in the middle of the lineup, not at the beginning, but 4Kids was afraid of breaking up the block of series imported from Japan that dominated the schedule. Idiots.

Anyway, here's the open:

I tried to watch, but since I wasn't following Stargate all that much to start with, I just wasn't into it.
