I loved this show!!!!
20 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show was the shiznit.i always watched it Ernie Reyes was the reason i started taking martial arts at th age of 8 he's was a miniature Bruce lee at that age.Loved him in TMNT as Donatello and in the last dragon among others. Saw him at a martial arts demo once can u say BADASS!!!! his moves were so precise and dead on lightning fast, well guys i guess we were just lucky to have been 80's babies with all the great TV shows and cartoons back then i've searched hi and low for this on DVD with no luck this show was classic the shows of today are crap compared to stuff like this and classics like voltron,silver hawks,go bots those were cartoons and this was a great TV show lets not forget what it was like to live in a time of great shows like these.
