NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1995–2000) is an animated children's comedy program. It was based on the Jim Carrey-starring film Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.

Ace Ventura and his simian sidekick Spike travel hither and yon to rescue distressed animals in the most unconventional ways. Ace may seem a bit addled and demented, but he'll usually come up with a plan to set things right, and still have time to throw his voice to his butt cheeks.

In 1997, Ace Ventura and The Mask (another cartoon spun off from a Jim Carrey vehicle, which in turn began as a comic) had crossover stories. It began on The Mask as Ace is called after evil scientist Pretorius dognapped Stanley Ipkiss' pet Jack Russell terrier Milo. In the Ace Ventura episode that immediately followed, The Mask joins Ace to locate a missing space hamster.

Third season episodes aired exclusively on Nickelodeon as CBS had jettisoned all their cartoon fare in the fall of 1997 in favor of live-action children's shows and a Saturday edition of their weekday morning news.
