Hi guys i found this page about the my gym partners a monkey pilot from 2004 that is lost.There is very little info on it and only one picture.If anybody has more info on this pilot feel free to post it
My gut instinct is to not trust stub articles with zero sources on wikis run by children, but I am curious where that picture came from. Reverse image search comes up with the full picture on this page only: www.imdb.com/title/tt2467446/ According to that, it's called "A Troubled Lion", but IMDb often has incorrect info so take that with a grain of salt.
you can look at the articles "history" and find who originally made it and the editors of said article. only 2 people worked on the article it looks like.
the picture also has a slightly different design for the main character, and it definitely looks real... and nothing we've seen before. id say this is real. id say try to contact the guy who made the wiki article and tell him where he got the info from
Wow this is a cool thread, and that image is very interesting too. The picture is as old as 2013 based on those YouTube soundtrack uploads, so it wouldn't surprise me if someone found it years ago and it just slowly circulated. I know in the past random pilot stuff has been found in portfolios of people who worked on the show or really obscure (but related) websites so it could have come from something like that originally.
I hope that fanpop person responds with some better insight, but in the meantime I'm gonna do my usual search methods to try and see if I can get more leads regarding the pilots themselves.
I guess I've never looked up the pilot for this show before but it's something I want to find now.

Hello; I'm the girl that posted that picture on Fanpop. Sorry to say, I just got that image from the Lost Media Archive to begin with, although I do recognize it easily as just a rough version of the scene from the episode 'Shark Attack', where Adam's growling stomach interrupts Eddie's stalking lesson. I don't know if it's just concept art for this scene or what, but it was listed as a cel from the pilot on the Archive, so that is how I posted it in turn.
If any other piece of media is missing for this series, I do have that, however. The movie and special in their entirety, the shorts, etc. I am actually a lost media collector of sorts. I do my best to preserve.
Radiant Lloyd Firefly, I watch your youtube show regularly, and I'd be happy to help or provide info or otherwise should you need it. I know you're kind of resourceful at this.
The lostmediaarchive thread said that mgpam had two pilots and that in the first one characters had other designs (and the image is from the first one) as pointed out by the post.So the second is probably the first episode with the current designs.
So the first one probably is a variation of the first episode(the second pilot)
Plus according to wikipedia the show first aired december 26 2005, but it also in broadcast history section it said that "The series began its regular run with a three-episode premiere on Cartoon Network's "Fridays" block on February 24, 2006"
So the screenshot still could be a pilot, or it can be some sort of concept art.

No problem. As I said, I'm into lost media. Never expected anyone to come knocking about it, though, haha.
Shark Attack isn't the first episode (Inoculation Day/Animal Testing is) but it could have been a scene they reworked into a later episode. Many cartoon shows did start with 3 7-minute shorts, too, so I don't doubt it would've had that format. TV Tropes actually mentions the pilots, noting how they and the first few of the series had "smoother animation" than later episodes, so maybe someone over there knows something.
