A hilarious cartoon version of a hilarious live action movie series!
10 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

I grew up watching this cartoon in the late 1980s. The movies the cartoon is based on are incredibly funny! The cartoon is very true to the movies and the characters look and sound much like the movies. The whole gang of cops gets the job done in their own unique way, with tons of laughs along the way. Plus, there's a great theme song by The Fat Boys! (Fat Boys coming to town, oh yeah! bomp, ch-ch, bomp, ch-ch bomp bomp) Captain Harris and Proctor are really funny as they try to get the lovable crew of Mahoney, Jones, Sweetchuck, Zed, Hightower, Hooks, House, Callahan, and Tackleberry off the force. But Commandant Lassard and the Professor are there on their side and the Police Academy always comes through. Hooray!
