Although many people claim there is a final episode, it was never filmed. The script, "Requiem", was finished and it is available on line courtesy of writer Michael Reaves. In addition, the DVD box set release of the series includes a performance of the script as a radio play style production. See more »
This is great. Now we're looking for a bunch of crybabies and a yacht club.

I decided to buy the box set of this, having memories of watching it as a child. Now as a 26 year old I have to say it's still great.
The animation is a little dated and it has that Captain Planet style 'moral every episode' theme but that to me is what makes it so classic and I just don't understand why more episodes weren't made.
The voice acting was superb and certain episodes had a dark element to them which makes it that much more appealing to me as an adult. Their struggle to get home drew some real emotions from the characters at times meaning even now I still rooted for them in every episode.
My favourite character is still Eric (as a kid I actually had a crush on him which is pretty sad), I think he acts just like I would if I was in that situation, making jokes to make light of a bad situation and running like hell when a huge monster appears.
Not only do I still love this but 2 people I work with want to borrow the set, 1 because she remembers it and the other because her kids love it. I don't doubt they will appreciate seeing it again as much as I have.
Its a shame there are no plans to make a movie of this like they're doing with other 80's classics but I can't imagine any actors bringing justice to the characters because I love this show too much.
