Lloyd in Space is an American animated television series, created by Recess co-creators Joe Ansolabehere and Paul Germain. It premiered on February 3, 2001, on ABC on Saturday mornings.[1] The pilot was written by Ansolabehere, Germain and Mark Drop, with the characters designed by Eric Keyes. The series ran for four seasons, airing its final episode on February 27, 2004.


Living far in the future, shortly after the end of World War IX, Lloyd Nebulon is a green-skinned alien of the Verdigrean race with pointy ears and a single antenna sticking from his head.[2] Lloyd lives in the Intrepidville Space Station along with his telekinetic and telepathic little sister Francine and his mother, Commander Norah Li Nebulon, the Head of Intrepidville. Lloyd's friends are Eddie R. Horton (a red-haired teenage human), Kurt Blobberts (a massive purple blob with a single eyeball and low intelligence, of a species known as the Blobullons), and Douglas McNoggin (a giant brain with limbs and a face, of a species known as the Cerebellians).

Lloyd in Space was first introduced in early 2001 during Disney's One Saturday Morning on ABC. The show received higher ratings than initially expected, prompting Disney to quickly order additional episodes (some of which would air in the second season).

Lloyd in Space finished production in 2003, after the One Saturday Morning block was removed. The final episodes aired in February 2004.


Reruns of the series aired on Toon Disney until 2006, when it was replaced by The Emperor's New School.[citation needed]

The series received a mixed reception. Andrea Graham of Common Sense Media described the series as focusing on "space teen [who] copes with intergalactic boredom". She also argued that the series is "charming and heartwarming".[3]
