This show be revived for 2003
19 March 2003 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

This is one of the greatest show of the 1980s. In my mind, I think a cartoon studio should look at this nostalgic series and have a new version of the series air for the 21st century generation. I don't care what anybody says. This show is a very interesting series. It's not for babies, it's for everyone. I hope it comes back. If He-Man, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and other show get revived. I think it's only fair.
