CW4Kids dropped it from its schedule after airing the first-season finale "Search For Power" on June 14, 2008. It was the last series to be created for the Kids WB! block. The remaining episodes can be seen on Netflix Instant Streaming as well as Jaroo online.

Famous quotes containing the words world of, quest and/or world:
“It is not in the world of ideas that life is lived. Life is lived for better or worse in life, and to a man in life, his life can be no more absurd than it can be the opposite of absurd, whatever that opposite may be.”
—Archibald MacLeish (18921982)
“Every writing career starts as a personal quest for sainthood, for self-betterment. Sooner or later, and as a rule quite soon, a man discovers that his pen accomplishes a lot more than his soul.”
—Joseph Brodsky (b. 1940)
“Truth is a pain which will not stop. And the truth of this world is to die. You must choose: either dying or lying. Personally, I have never been able to kill myself.”
