At the beginning of each episode, Kidd Video and the rest of his basement-band are live-action characters who get forced into a bizarre and animated world by the hands of the evil (and animated) record producer Master Blaster. They become animated themselves, but always find their way back to the "real world" and foil the nefarious plans of Master Blaster, and just in time to play a song before the show ends.

Awesome 80s
8 May 2003 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

AHHH the 80s, what can I say? Kidd Video was just a blast to watch and to listen to. The music videos at the end of every episode, were a bonus. How can a kid growing up in the 80s ask for more?? This was the quintessential cartoon for the MTV generation, along with JEM ofcourse! For those interested, the music that appeared on the show are available to download online on their website Kidd Video Flipside. It would be great to see the stars of this show on VH1 "where are they now?" or at least to see the show again on TV; love those songs and Kidd (Bryan Scott) was damn cute too as I remember!!! Wonder if Kidd, Carla, Whiz and Ash are still traveling in the Flipside....a good dose of 80s nostalgia "from my radio to my video"....
