  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Miguzi was a programming block from Cartoon Network that ran on the weekday after-school slot from 2004 to 2007, when it died ingloriously and was briefly replaced by Master Control. Created by Cartoon Network’s Williams Street division, the folks that brought us Toonami and Adult Swim, it was created to be a lighter-toned successor to Toonami (while Toonami itself was reconfigured to a Saturday night block), running action shows from America, France, and Japan.

The animated hostess here was Erin, a young CGI girl with black hair and a yellow jumpsuit who, at the start of the block, was transported underwater and into a sunken alien spaceship by an enormous red fish. There, she chills out and watches the shows along with a group of mutant sea creatures and robots, none of whom speaks but all of whom have rudimentary personalities.

The block began as a sort of Replacement Scrappy, having been brought in to appease the kids after Toonami was booted off the time slot and moved to Saturday nights, where it kept on going for a year or two before its heartwarming finale. Although it was originally not very popular, especially with longtime Cartoon Network fans, Miguzi grew on viewers soon enough, especially because it ran popular shows like Teen Titans and Yu-Gi-Oh! as well as having introduced new "classics" such as Code Lyoko and Totally Spies


Featured Shows
