Premise

Living far in the future, shortly after the end of World War Nine, Lloyd Nebulon is a green-skinned alien (of the Verdigrean race) with strange ears and a single antenna sticking from his head. Lloyd lives in the Intrepidville Space Station along with his telekinetic and telepathic 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 (an enormous purple blob with a single eyeball and simple intelligence, of a species known as the Blobullons), and Douglas McNoggin (a giant brain with arms, feet, eyes and a mouth, of a species known as the Cerebellians).

Early success

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

Cancellation

Lloyd in Space was officially canceled in 2006. However, production on the program ceased in 2003.

Broadcast markets

A total of 40 Lloyd in Space episodes were released in North America, Europe, and Asia.

"Cheery Therlap Lloyd" did not air in Asia due to its satirical religious holiday theme. "Commander Lloyd", "Day One", "Go Crater Worms", and "Ride Along" were never contracted to the Asian market. "Picture Perfect" was contracted exclusively to the Asian market.
