"M.A.S.K." (the abbreviated form of an organization called "Mobile Armored Strike Kommand") was an increadible show at its time. How I wish shows of this calibur were created still today.
This show was a pioneer in the animation business of world crime fighting shows. Along with a handful of others, there occured a revoultion in the mid-1980s and a craving for shows like "M.A.S.K." What I mainly enjoyed about the show was the fact that the storylines and plots were simple, but at the same time provided plenty of entertainment over the course of it's 30 minutes (probably around 22 after commercials). The characters were also well thought out and very fun to watch. But in reality, I don't know if I'd want them saving me! Nevertheless, "M.A.S.K." was a great show. Of the original 65 episodes, just over half made in onto VHS video cassette. These tapes are now collectors items, as well as the dozens of action figures that accompanied the show. Recently, there have been rumors circulation reguarding a "M.A.S.K. Movie", due out sometime within the next few years. At best, a long shot...better to dream about the T.V. show of the past. But maybe...just maybe...
