Constant Payne is an 11-minute animated pilot episode written by Micah Wright and produced in 2001 for Nickelodeon Animation. The series was planned to be an anime based, action oriented show, but due to the events of September 11th, 2001, the series was ultimately never released. It was also an animated pilot episode for a series that was never picked up due to union difficulties in the early 2000's. Though set in a futuristic setting, steampunk and dieselpunk elements, along with a design aesthetic of art deco, clearly show the influence of these genres on the creators.

A long line of knights, crusaders, monster hunters, police, scientists, archaeologists, and adventurers, there has always been a Payne protecting human civilization from every sinister force imaginable. Funded by an immense family fortune, the Paynes exist to protect us from the worst in ourselves and from elsewhere. Now Amanda Payne, the youngest of the next generation of the Payne Family is coming of age and preparing to inherit this awesome mantle of responsibility... but her father doesn't want her to follow in his footsteps!"
