"Father of the Pride"

"Father of the Pride" was a short-lived NBC animated sitcom that ran in 2004. It was so short-lived, in fact, that the first season didn't even air in its entirety. The show was about a family of white lions, one of whom appears with Siegfried & Roy in Las Vegas.

It cost $1.6 million per episode to produce, so it needed to be a ratings juggernaut to justify its expense. Unfortunately, it lost nearly half of its highly-coveted 18- to 49-year-old demographic within just a couple of months. The show was quickly euthanized before even completing its scheduled run.

(NOTE: NBC is the parent company of CNBC.)
