Portia de Rossi,
Unsold animated TV pilot adapted from a short comic book from the creator of Hellboy. Enlisted in President Abraham Lincoln's secret service, the amazing agent Screw-On Head is the bravest and most dedicated operative, even though at first glance, he is nothing more than a disembodied mechanical head. However, with the exotic ability to screw itself onto a wide variety of robotic bodies, the Head is eager to accept missions his human colleagues don't even dare to pursue. Along with his faithful valet, Mr Groin, Screw-On Head goes on a mission to save America against the ghastly Emperor Zombie and his evil plan to unleash an ancient Demigod on earth. Can the mechanical super-spy foil the megalomaniac's schemes?Written by

[to Mr. Dog]
Mr. Dog! Did you come to save the day?
When I was alive and he was alive he won best in show 10 times running.
[to Mr. Dog]
Well, the show's over now, Mr. Dog, and this time you didn't win.
[shoots Mr. Dog several times; Mr. Dog continues to stand and growl]
Um, would you mind stepping on him?

This is the story of the Amazing Screw-On Head, a robot that works for Abraham Lincoln and the United States of America circa 1862. He is capable of attaching himself (a head) into various robotic bodies, some humanoid and others far more powerful. He is called to service when his arch-nemesis, Emperor Zombie, has decided to unleash the power of a demi-god.
This short, roughly 24 minutes, cartoon was a pitch for a series for the SyFy network. For reasons unknown to me, it was not picked up and all that exists today is this one episode. Like another series that never took off, "Heat Vision and Jack", I think this was a great mistake on SyFy's part.
Besides a nice limb-beating scene, the cartoon had original and quirky characters with a unique artwork style. Then you add Abraham Lincoln. I think one could compare the style of this roughly to "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog" or "The Venture Brothers", both of which were or are quite successful. Compared to the other original crud SyFy pumps out, this would have likely gathered them a respectable audience.
There isn't much point in watching this cartoon with no others to go with it (the story is really minimal), but if you can get your hands on a copy, maybe give it a try. You'll see what might have been...
