The 2001 pilot to the Cartoon Network hit series “Constant Payne”. The series is an anime-inspired dieselpunk action-adventure dramedy and science fiction show, with an aesthetic inspired by "Russian wood-block propaganda posters of the 1920s & 1930s, created by Micah Ian Wright. Constant Payne, often called CP or ConPay by its fandom, was originally meant to come out in 2001 and be a Nickelodeon program but due the events of 9/11, and problems with unions, the network dropped it. It wasn’t until Cartoon Network founder and president Betty Cohen stumbled upon the 2001 pilot in 2004 that Constant Payne would get a second chance at life. When Cohen contacted Wright and told him she and CN were interested in his pilot and wanted to make it a full-fledged show starting with 12 episodes, Wright reportedly was completely overjoyed and left his relatively new job in the field of video game writing to join Cartoon Network. ConPay creator Micah Ian Wright at San Diego Comic-Con in 2015. Constant Payne would go on to be one of CN’s best known and successful series alongside the likes of Avatar: The Last Airbender (which premiered on the network in 2008 after Nickelodeon turned the show down for reasons that remain unclear to this day), Ed, Edd, n Eddy, Chowder, Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld, Sym-Bionic Titan, and many others . Though ConPay has out lasted them all and continues to run with new episodes to this day by taking several hiatuses throughout its long runtime (and its current seasons and those of the past are all available on the Cartoon Network App). There is news of a Made-for-TV movie coming out next year in 2020 and that it is a supposed crossover between Constant Payne and Nickelodeon’s own Ben 10 (which debuted on that network in 2015). There is much speculation across both shows’ respective fandoms, particularly on the Constant Payne and Ben 10 Aminos, that this inter-channel crossover is an attempt by Nickelodeon to keep audiences interested in Ben 10, which has been dropping in quality and viewership over the past couple of years (leading to a lot of Ben 10 fans dropping the show and going over to Constant Payne instead...at least for those who don’t watch both already, they usually just drop Ben 10 & continue watching Constant Payne).
