Celebrity Deathmatch is an American stop-motion animated series created by Eric Fogel for MTV. A parody of sports entertainment programs, Celebrity Deathmatch depicts various celebrities engaging in highly stylized professional wrestling matches. The series is known for its large amount of bloody violence, including combatants employing different abilities and weapons to deliver particularly brutal attacks, resulting in exaggerated physical injuries. Two television pilots were broadcast on MTV on January 1 and 25, 1998. The series proper premiered on May 14, 1998, and ended on October 20, 2002, airing for 75 episodes. A television special, Celebrity Deathmatch Hits Germany, aired on June 21, 2001. For a brief period during that year, reruns of the series aired on broadcast network UPN. Professional wrestler Stone Cold Steve Austin portrayed a fictionalized version of himself as a guest commentator. Early in 2003, a film based on the series was announced by MTV to be in production, but the project was canceled by the end of the year. In 2005, MTV2 announced the revival of the show as part of their Sic 'Em Friday programming block. Originally set to return in November 2005, the premiere was pushed back to June 10, 2006 as part of a block with two other animated series, Where My Dogs At? and The Adventures of Chico and Guapo. The revival series was produced without any involvement from Fogel. The series' fourth and fifth seasons were produced by Cuppa Coffee Studios, and the premiere drew over 2.5 million viewers, becoming MTV2's highest rated season premiere ever. It was canceled again in 2007. In April 2015, MTV2 announced a reboot of the series. However, in November 2016, Fogel stated via Twitter that MTV did not pick up the pilot to series.
