I can see why this was never picked up
8 December 2012 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

After a string of cult hits including Fritz the Cat and Lord of the Rings, Ralph Bakshi returned to television with the Nikelodeon pilot 'Tattertown'. The show was about a world where everything that humans discard winds up. Debbie, a girl transported to this world, would explain to the denizens of Tattertown their worth separated from the human world. The pilot dealt with Christmas, albeit not very well, and was reconfigured as a special to be aired on November 21st 1988. There's a reason why you've never heard it. It ain't that good.

Narrated by Keith David, and featuring typically eccentric Bakshi animation, I can see that the concept would have been full of potential, but the characters are all over the place, and the Angelika-like antagonist (all you Rugrats fans will get what I mean) was very, very annoying.

Worth watching as a curiosity.
