Motorcity is a flash-animated television series created by Chris Prynoski and produced by Titmouse, Inc. for Disney XD. The series ran from April 30, 2012 to January 7, 2013. It was cancelled on November 5, 2012.


This show occurs in a fictitious futuristic Detroit, which is an elevated metropolis built over the old Detroit, classified as Detroit Deluxe. It is owned by evil billionaire Abraham Kane. Ruling the citizens under strict laws, and banning personal freedoms including automobile transportation, Kane now faces one last obstacle: a group of hot-rod wielding rebels who call themselves the Burners. Led by Kane's former cadet Mike Chilton, the Burners rise to stop Kane from conquering Detroit's last oasis of freedom—an underground refuge dubbed Motorcity.

Why It Rocks

  1. The intro theme is just phenomenal. It was composed by the same person (Brendon Small) who created Metalocalypse alongside Tommy Blancha.
  2. Talented voice acting from the cast, especially Reid Scott who would later on voice Turbo in Turbo FAST. In fact, Chris Prynoski served as executive producer on there and he knew Scott from 2000–2001.
  3. Wonderful and detailed flash animation, bringing Megas XLR vibes.
  4. The car designs look stunning.
  5. Amazing metal soundtracks.
  6. Stunning and colourful visuals that resembles Gorillaz.
  7. The ending was great.
  8. This show makes flash animation great for animating shows.

Bad Qualities

  1. Texas can be unlikable at times. The one episode, "The Robo-Roundup", he tortured Roth at the start just to enter Mama's Boys Rodeo Roundup.
  2. This show got cancelled after one season.
    • According to the Motorcity Wiki, there are 5 reasons why they had to cancel it:
      • It moved around their timeslot too much.
      • The show went on a hiatus when their fanbase was growing.
      • The episodes were shown out of order.
      • It was rarely advertised.
      • Way too many leaked episodes even after the hiatus.
  3. Moreover, even though it had a large fanbase, it unfortunately wasn't really well-known.
