Do you guys remember Time Trotters.  It was a pretty cool show featuring Jeff, Ryan, and Rich.  It looks like the artist is doing stuff for the site.  Anyway here is the one and only episode of Time Trotters.  It was actually really cool.  Similar to 1up's Broken Pixels.

Damn right I remember Time Trotters

I also remember that there was always talk of a new Time Trotters - too bad nothing came of it

I believe that Jeff said that CNET (gamespot) owns the copyright to Timetrotters so it will never truly comeback.
Its a shame though. I loved the Rich character and when the put their arms together to make the logo. Funny stuff.

Oh man, I totally want a new TimeTrotters, even if it has to use a new name.

Thank you for showing me this.  Somehow I missed it, and this is video gold.

I remember watchin that when it came out.
Time Trotters was funny, but the longer you watch it the lamer it gets. The first five minutes is GREAT.

I don't think it is the same artist.

Are you kidding ... Time Trotters was amazing.  I could never get sick of animated Jeff and Ryan.  MORE TIME TROTTERS.

I think it was Rich's college buddy that did the art style. I forget his name but the vid is full of awesome.

omg i remember this
i always thought the idea of the series was awesome
im sure GB can find a way to just create a whole new series on the same premise to avoid the copyright issues

Man, I miss Rich. It was a sad day when he left.

Yeah, I remember it saw during E3 07 I believe really enjoyed it and wondered if there were other episodes looks like that has been answered though.

Such a novel concept!

#17 Posted by MattBodega (1907 posts) -

It's more than just Cnet owning the right's to Time Trotters. Since CBS recently picked up CNET, now CBS owns the valuable "Time Trotters" property.
Hopes for a saturday morning Time Trotters cartoon aside, I'm afraid that's one show that was killed well before it's peak.
Poor one out for Mr. Games 1X.

Rich should join Giant Bomb!
Maybe not as an employee, but maybe as a contributor or something.

Damn intellectual property! This series had real potential.

This website is using art simular to the trailer for the proposed animated Time Trotters serise. Hope?

It was painfully unfunny until the actual review started. Also painfully unfunny post-review.

Man, I really hate to say this...

...but HOW STONED were you guys when you decided to put an Aquaman Rhino in the show?

To the people asking about the art: Yes, Ben Coello did the art (and animation, I believe) for Time Trotters and he is the same guy that drew all the staff illustrations for Giant Bomb. He is also on that Robots VS. Wizards video with Rich. He was Rich's roomate in college and they had the Ben and Rich show.

Sadly, the one thing that sticks with me about Time Trotters is Rich Gallup's total inability to act. Seriously, he can't seem to stop smiling. I love the guy, but man! Not a good hard-boiled police chief.
