I had an idea a long time ago for an animated Gremlins TV series. I thought once I got into the industry I'd see if I could pitch it. But not only did the industry prove to be a bit of a bear when it comes to original ideas. but Cartoon Network went ahead and ripped off the Gremlins original storyline.
A GREMLINS cartoon would have been cool, but likely light and goofy like the second film, and not dark and entertaining like the first.
I saw somewhere not too long ago that a GREMLINS 3 script is still in early drafts, and apparently Joe Dante has said in interviews its still a possibility, but it's just a matter of time until things work out. I'd like to see it go back to being dark and creepy like the first movie.
