2086 AD: Although the 21st century is the space age, mankind is ever expanding the frontiers of technical superiority into unknown and uncharted areas. Each such quest promises marvelous discoveries, but also brings potential danger. In direct response to such dangers birthed from advanced technology, the Thunderbird rescue squad stands ready to mobilize in response to any distress calls arriving at any time from any disaster scene on or off Earth. Five of the squad's finest cadets - Dylan Beyda, Kallen James, Jesse Rigel, Jonathan Jordan Jr and Grant Hanson - undergo exciting adventures as they brave impossible and incredible dangers to rescue lives.

an early anime favorite
20 November 2000 | by (Fountain Valley, CA) – See all my reviews

This Jap Anime cartoon was shown on Prism or Showtime if I remember correctly. I have ben searching for the name of this show for several weeks now and finally found it!! The Thunderbirds were a high tech rescure team who could rescue victims in the air on land or sea. Sort of Navy SEAL paramedics with a little of the Transformers and Voltron thrown in. A great animated seris if you can find it.
