Flash animation series
Lobo is one of the few series of Flash animations made by a professional publisher of mainstream cartoons. Its use of Flash (and also vector graphics) enables the animation to appear undistorted and unpixellated at any resolution.
Each episode features a mini-game or puzzle which can be played while the clip downloads, as well as an interactive feature which allows viewers to help a character make a certain decision.
Other features of the website include downloadable trailers, screensavers, desktop backgrounds, internet chat buddy icons, as well as biographies of the characters. The screensavers, desktop backgrounds and internet chat buddy icon sites, however, no longer work, and simply redirect to the Warner Bros. website, as the Lobo website also does. The website shut down in 2002 and the files were accessible until December 31st, 2020.

Tim Webber of CBR thought that the cartoon fits Lobo but is jarring for the DCAU.
