This cartoon was made in 11-minute segments to provide a companion piece to another cartoon, whether it was an 11 minute "Punky Brewster" cartoon or half of a "Beverly Hills Teens" cartoon in order to fill out the entire half hour. I guess that was to make room for the other syndicated shows broadcasts on the UHF channels at that time.
I say that because I felt that was probably the ONLY reason why they made this cartoon - too ridiculous to expand into an entire half hour, but they already budgeted money for this turkey so they decided to economize. What can I say? Maxie is an airhead with her own TV show and an equally airheaded boyfriend. Her other friends I could care less about (I can hardly remember their names). I would venture to say that the only aspects of this cartoon that piques my interest is the scattered references to eighties pop culture and that annoyingly catchy theme song at the beginning.
The animation is typical of DiC, good character designs but the fluidity is wanting. It is still better than some of the other endeavors made by DiC (*cough*Cyber Cops*cough*) overall ** out of **** stars.
