Per TermAs HBO Max continues its inevitable merger with Discovery+, more space is created this time around by removing several animated and unscripted titles. The content should disappear this week. Some of these selections include Ellen’s Next Great Designer and animated series such as Close Enough and Yabba Dabba’s Dinosaurs. And just in case, if we thought Sesame Street would comfortably remain on the service, it is also not immune from deletion. HBO Max is also getting rid of The Not Too Late Show with Elmo, as well as various specials from Sesame Street.
While the list of deleted content is full of animated and unscripted shows, surprisingly a couple of shows didn’t meet those criteria. For example, in addition to the children’s game series Detention Adventures, HBO Max is also producing the drama series Generation. Created by Daniel Barnz and his daughter Zelda and executive produced by Lena Dunham, the HBO Max original focuses on Generation Z students at an Orange County high school. It only lasted one season before being canceled despite much praise from fans and critics.
As per Deadline, other content expected to be removed includes: “12 Dates of Christmas”, “About Last Night”, “Aquaman: King of Atlantis”, “Dodo”, “Elliott of Earth”, “Esme and Roy. The Fungies!”, “Generation Hustle”, “Infinity Train”, “Little Ellen”, “Mao Mao, Pure Heart Heroes”, “Mess Goes to Okido”, “Mia’s Magic Playground”, “Mighty Magic Swords”, ” My Dinner with Herve”, “My mom, your dad”, “Odo”, “OK, KO! Happiness”, “Make it big, make it small”, “Share”, “Slurp”, “Summer Camp Island”, “Escaped Rabbit is Special”, “Feodosia”, “Tig and Seek”, “Uncle Grandpa,” and “Victor and Valentino”
