You just don't see a lot of sports cartoons on television these days, and there's a reason for this. They tend to be really corny, and they generally don't last very long.
And I can see why.
Athletes don't make for the best characters, and when your only noticeable talent lies in athletics, what possible story line can you create that won't be absurd?
Think about it. If you gave Tom Brady a cartoon, what would it be about? He's an entrepreneur who dates beautiful women by day and is a crime-fighting quarterback by night. And his arch nemesis is the evil David Tyree, the destroyer of dreams.
See, it's stupid. I would totally watch that, by the way.
Even when the cartoon doesn't directly involve a known athlete but is still related to sports, it's usually meant to make light of it. And other times, it's just unintentionally funny.
