More shows have disappeared from HBO Max

In the wake of news that films like Batgirl have been cancelled, more shows have been disappearing from HBO Max.

It seems like almost nothing is safe from the big Warner Bros re-structuring. HBO Max, which is owned by Warner Bros. Discovery, has removed 36 movies and TV shows from the platform. That includes the highly acclaimed Infinity Train, which was previously removed from Cartoon Network and cancelled after four seasons.

Other removals include a plethora of kids content, including a Sesame Street spinoff called The Not Too Late Show With Elmo. Generation, OK KO! Let’s Be Heroes, Summer Camp Island, and more have also been removed from the service.

The removal has been a shock to many involved with the creation of the shows. Some feel as if their hard work has been wasted. That includes Julia Pott, creator of Summer Camp Island, who tweeted about the situation.

“We worked for 5 years to make 100 episodes of animation” she said. “We worked late into the night, we let ourselves go, we were a family of hard working artists who wanted to make something beautiful, and HBO MAX just pulled them all like we were nothing. Animation is not nothing!”

Removals and where to find them

Thankfully, many of this content is available through other means. Summer Camp Island will air new episodes on Cartoon Network. Other shows are still available to buy in places like Amazon or iTunes.

The removals come after the cancellation of Batgirl, which was the first in a long line of bad news surrounding Warner Bros owned content. The movie was cancelled despite being close to completion, and reportedly performed badly at screenings. Warner Bros claimed it was cancelled due to a re-shape at the company.

Other DC movies are still on track to release, including The Flash and Black Adam.
