  3. A petition wouldn't be a bad idea. Historically, it's brought other shows back from the dead.

  4. Emailing him as we speak. It only takes a minute of your time and I think is very worth the wee effort!

  5. I'm not a child and I don't have little grandkids, but I really enjoyed the show. Please bring it back.

  6. This show is a catalyst for the bright and imaginative minds of the millions of young adults that grew up up with the Muppets and Sesame Street. Creature Show would allow them to show off their talents and encourage thousands more to use their imagination. Please reconsider and find a way to restructure the show in order to save money but to continue to produce it. It will make more Monet in the end and a great service to talented people to be discovered.

  12. Cancelling this show was the worst thing Syfy has done since ripping off my pitch for Red: Werewolf Hunter.

  13. I am sad, without this show I have no reason to live. Jim hensons Creature shop challenge was the only show I would be so happy to get home and stay up to watch. Since syfy cancelled this show I have stuck around for face off and some other shows. But it's not the same... I am only a joyless shell of a person without this show.I want them to please consider a renewal, I am praying 24/7 on my knees for this show. My best wishes - Sorelle
