Chowder’s cancellation confirmed

Chowder creator C.H. Greenblatt has confirmed on his blog that the show has been canceled.

We’re still finishing up lots of good episodes. I think you’ll see that we hit a really good groove third season. My biggest worry before we were cancelled was what would happen to the crew, but luckily, a large chunk of them got hired over at Disney on a new project. It’s funny how many old CN faces I see over there now.

I’m gonna do an exit interview with Mr. Greenblatt for my blog. If anyone wants to ask him a question, send it to me by tomorrow (Saturday) at noon.

I started watching Chowder with my kids on your recommendation, Charles, and I have to say I wasn’t disappointed. It’s a really unique and creative show and is absolutely hilarious IMO.

It’s a real shame that CN isn’t going forward with it.

That’s too bad…the last two eps I saw had that freewheeling hilarity that I love.

Fortunately Chowder will live on in reruns, until Cartoon Network decides to pull it out of rotation for some lame reality-tv ripoff.

Not so funny. Disney WISHES they were CN.

Never heard of the show, so in all honesty, my heart doesn’t ache at the loss.

I still wish the guy good future endeavors though – for him and his team.

I find it depressing that spongebob is one of the oldest cartoons on TV these days … what’s with the unique ones always getting canceled?

Chowder is getting the axe? Well,then I guess I’ll have nothing else to watch on Cartoon Network…not even the re-runs of older shows will make it worth while for me…

Did Cartoon Network cancel the show or was it Greenblatt? I’m thinking C.N.,seeing as how they’re still adding more ($@)*!$%!@) shows to their line up.

Chowder has been my all-time favorite cn show from day one. Ive followed Mr. Greenblatt since he first entered the business and Chowder, by far, has been his best work. I guess this network has given all that it has for me… If I ever run Cartoon Network- invader zim, chowder, adventure time, and other original and hilarious shows will be running non stop. Mark my words. CN- your making a huge mistake.

Misadv. Of Flapjack, Adventure Time & Chowder are the only 3 shows on CN that are actually funny. The rest are just lame and stupid.

I agree with Guillermo Hernandez Misadv. Of Flapjack, Adventure Time & Chowder are the only 3 shows on CN that are actually funny. The rest are just lame and stupid.
