Highlight of 80s animation, 12 August 2001
Author: yojoedave from Canada

Forget the toys!

Yes this show was based on Hasbro's toys, but this show gave life and personality to the plastic figures!

There were so many characters, so many personalities and an abundance of stories to tell. The action was non-stop and the plot lines were on the border of unbelievable. The writing quality is top notch, and at times filled with humour, satire, and sarcasm. (I love the old 80s colloquialisms and clichés).

Like any cartoon created in the 1980s the artwork quality is also top of the line. Resembling american comic-style, All the characters are brightly drawn, and well animated (especially in the 1st season).

The voice acting was ahead of the game, featuring the popular talent of that time (and now, still), Ed Gilbert, Frank Welker, Neil Ross, Chriss Latta e.t.c... you can tell they enjoyed working on the show together, just by the effort they put into it.

My only regret is that Hasbro didn't renew their contract with Marvel/Sunbow for a 3rd season after the movie.

It doesn't get much better than this folks. This would definitely be a show I would want my kids to grow up on....I wonder what happened to wholesome Saturday mornings/Weekday afternoons?
