Goofs

If you look careful in the title sequence for you can not only see the white and red blaster mask associated with nightstalker aka hurricane (the blue car with yellow flames and the red guns) in the shot where they energize their masks but you see Hondo wearing it when you go into the lens of the spectrum mask and you later see nightstalker aka hurricane itself doing a v split with Rhino to avoid running over Scott and T-bob but nightstalker aka hurricane is not introduced until the end of episode 29 and the white and red mask isn't in any episode between episodes 1-30.

An important part of 80s action animation nostalgia
6 September 2001 | by (CANADA) – See all my reviews

This is a good cartoon to check out if you're looking for those cool action toons you grew up with. Just becareful you don't run into any of the final season racing episodes -- those will sour your views of this amazing show...(make sure you get the episodes made by DIC Animation, NOT KENNER!)

A covert team of superheros lead by Matt Tracker, use the powerful technology of MASK to attain super powers in order to combat the evil forces of VENOM. Each MASK member has a special cool-looking vehicle to help them in their fight. The catch is, VENOM forces also have special mask technology which makes them somewhat formidable foes.

I grew up with this show - I too had to wake up at 6:00 am to see it, but it was worth it!

This has to be one of DIC's better shows. It's action-packed, with reasonably interesting storylines. The characters are drawn and animated with depth - basically the artwork is polished and very desirable to look at. It's definitely well worth looking into in your 80s toon nostalgic quest!
