2DTV is a British satirical animated television series co-created and produced by Giles Pilbrow for ITV, and starring an ensemble voice cast. It premiered on 14 October 2001.
The programme was considered the spiritual successor of Spitting Image, the series of the 1980s that also featured work by Pilbrow. It also paid homage to the studio Hanna-Barbera in the way the show was animated. The voice cast included the talents of Jon Culshaw, Jan Ravens and Mark Perry.
The programme ran for five series before being cancelled on 23 December 2004 due to falling viewing figures. It was succeeded in the spring of 2008 by the short-lived series Headcases. The show was first announced in August 2001 as part of the new autumn lineup for ITV1. The show was nominated for the Rose d'Or Award in both 2002 and 2003.
