Project G.e.e.K.e.R.

"Project G.eeK.eR." is an animated television series that premiered on CBS on September 14, 1996. It was created by Douglas TenNapel, creator of "Earthworm Jim", with original music by Shawn Patterson (main title theme by Terry Scott Taylor). TenNapel and Taylor also collaborated on the video games "The Neverhood", "Boombots" and "Skullmonkeys", and in 2005, re-united for the hit Nickelodeon cartoon "Catscratch".

Despite good ratings, the show was pulled fairly early on in its life when CBS made a major rescheduling change to meet the three hours of educational TV required by the government (although the show was initially listed as an "educational" program).

ynopsis

Set in the future, the show was based around a genetic shapeshifter experiment known as Project GKR (Geno-Kinetic Research), who had been stolen by Lady MacBeth before he could get the programming he needed to be a deadly and powerful weapon at the hands of the evil Mister Moloch, head of Moloch Industries. Due to the lack of his final programming, "Geeker" is left to be a totally random, permanently salivating, four-fingered, idiot. He only occasionally manages to use his powers to any full extent, a blessing and a threat to his friends and their enemies. Lady MacBeth and her partner-in-crime Noah (a green, baseball cap wearing and intelligent "Tyrannosaurus rex") must now prevent Moloch and Geeker's creator Dr. Maston from ever obtaining Geeker at all costs.

Trivia

* Noah's favorite treat are breath mints. In the episode "Noble Savage" they are even used by Lady MacBeth to lure out the beastial Noah.

* Terry Scott Taylor (friend of creator Doug TenNapel) was contracted to write the main title theme for the show, while Shawn Patterson was selected to be the series score composer. Two days before the show was set to air, Tri-Star discovered a licensing issue with Terry and Patterson was asked by the producers to compose and produce a main title theme to go on the air. Shawn completed this and Project GeeKeR aired with Shawn's original main title music. Weeks into the series, the licensing problem with Terry Scott Taylor was cleared up and the show's creator Doug TenNapel requested that Terry's original main title theme be reinserted into the series. Patterson's main title music was then removed from the remainder of the series.
