There were only 24 episodes of the Jetsons? Really? Then why does everyone know them so well? Also, Batman: The Animated Series was briefly aired on prime time on a major network.

The 24 episodes were aired on ABC in prime time in the early '60s, and then rerun in Saturday-morning syndication constantly over the next couple of decades (which is probably where they got so well-known). They did then make more episodes in the 1980s, bringing the total episodes up to 75, but they were syndicated rather than network and probably not prime-time.

I also believe that, originally, the animated series Gargoyles played on ABC at different times. One was during the Disney Afternoon block of programming at around 3-5 p.m., but I think they also showed it on prime time on Saturdays or Sundays at 8 p.m. I can't find any reference online to back me up, though. I'm sure about the Batman thing.

It looks like Batman: The Animated Series only aired in prime time for a couple of months before being removed for low ratings (they put it up against 60 Minutes, fercryingoutloud). It almost certainly didn't make it to 20 episodes in prime time.

This needs to be updated. A couple of these "current" shows have been cancelled. Also, the episode count is much higher now for a few of these.

Ha, I remember the PJs! Can't say it was one of my favorites, but it started around the same time as Futurama. Another one I thought of was The Goode Family... But I guess it didn't even make it to 20 episodes.

How come the CW or former networks like WB and UPN don't count? That would have added Dilbert at the very least.
