Joss Whedon has a big regret.
No, not passing on 'Star Wars VII.' At least not yet.
What Whedon wishes was different was 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer.' Or, rather, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer cartoon. During a panel discussion, Whedon revealed that he regretted the Buffy animated series not getting off the ground, calling it his biggest regret.
"We got to do almost everything we wanted to do," he said during the event. “The only thing we didn't get to do is an animated version, which was a delight for us because the writers themselves were working on it."
Writers produced seven scripts, with "what could we not do [on the regular series]" as the baselines for the scripts.
"They were really fun to write," he said. "We could not sell the show. We could not sell an animated 'Buffy,' which I still find incomprehensible."
All of the original cast members were set to reprise their roles on the series, which was going to be set during the first three seasons of the series. Alas, it was not to be.
Would you have watched the cartoon series? Or would it have met the same painful death that Kevin Smith's 'Clerks' animated series did?
