The show was canceled due to complaints that the it was actually a series of 30 minute commercials for Mattel's line of Skyhawk toys. Interestingly, the complaints came from Topper Toys, a rival of Mattel. See more »
I feel privileged growing up at a time when, after eons of wishing to, mankind finally sets foot upon the moon. Now it seems to be a ho-hum event which perplexes me. I don't think I can meet the requirements of being an astronaut but always loved to watch aircraft. As a youngster, I loved to watch this cartoon. I liked it so much that I wrote the Mattel toy makers at that time and suggested they make a Skyhawks Picture Maker Kit. After all, Barbie and Hot Wheels, I believe, had one. Of course, they wrote back stating they are happy for the feedback from consumers but could not follow through on my request. I now get my kicks on Microsoft's Flight Simulator and fly "cyber" Cessnas but like to think back to the time, as a kid, when drawing them seemed to be really cool.
