    200x: A Filmation Prequel?

    Since 200x was an origin-heavy show, and Filmation began with all of the players already on the field, is there any particular reason that 200x couldn't be considered as a prequel to the Filmation series?

    Now, I know that had 200x continued this wouldn't be possible, but since it ended where it did, could the two coexist?

    There may be a couple of continuity no-no's, but as someone who grew up reading lots of comics, I've long since learned to overlook those.

    As it stands I would say no. But I could see how one could certainly weave it in and make it work

    Are you able to provide specific reasons? I'm curious as 200x is fresh on my mind but I haven't seen the Filmation stuff in years.

    I assume the biggest issue would be the Teela's father stuff.

    Personally thats how I choose to view it.

    For me it's

    MYP MOTU
    Filmation MOTU
    Filmation POP
    NA
    PRO CLASSIC POP TOY DESIGN ELEMENTS BEING USED IN MOTUC TO COMPLEMENT THE FILMATION DESIGNS!!!!

    I FULLY SUPPORT THE INCLUSION OF ILLUMINA IN MOTUC!!!!!

    IF YOUR SICK OF WAITING FOR A LIGHT TO APPEAR AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL, STRIDE DOWN THERE AND LIGHT THE BLOODY THING YOURSELF!!!!!!!

    Nothing that I can think of specifically, but I guess you'd have to eliminate things from MYP to make it work well like Teela's Father and a few other elements.

    But it would mostly work I think

    200X is a REMAKE of the character's backstories and MOTU overall story/concept. And a darn good job they did.

    I understand that it was intended to be a remake.

    But given the fact that the series was cancelled after 39 episodes, they did not have the opportunity to follow through on the Despondos/Horde plotlines, so nothing majorly contradictory happened that I am aware of.

    Since 200x provided the origin and a teen Adam, and Filmation begins with an adult Adam, I think the possibility of considering them the same canon is a valid one.

    I feel so dumb now... I really thought it was a prequel!
