[show]The show was cancelled by Ted Koplar, President of World Events Productions, the Voltron rights owner, despite the fact that Voltron was the top syndicated show on the market for boys ages 13 to 21-years-old. The success of the new Voltron series brought CGI animation studio Netter Digital, technical accolades for their innovative production pipeline integrating motion-capture with LightWave software. This allowed for the pace of TV animation to be profitable in 3D, the first profitable 3D animated TV series made. On the heels of Voltron's success, new animation business deals came into Netter in 1999 from Sony TV Animation, Lego and the U.K. The success was short lived. Netter Digital failed to capitalize on the success of Voltron due to internal management issues over the cancellation of "Crusade," the spin-off series of "Babylon 5" for which Netter Digital had been created to support. Netter Digital closed their doors in 2001 after management could not settle their differences between focusing on animation production vs. launching more live action shows.
