This show is way ahead of its time. Not only does it forward a message of environmental consciousness but it has strong stories with great characters that was typically unseen in other cartoons at this time. The whole concept of island settlements reminds the viewer of ABC's Lost and how many zombie movies are situated in post apocalyptic worlds? Granted, one villains name is Hammer but that probably a consequence of the year in which it was created rather than poor writing. A show in which Cadillacs meet dinosaurs... how could anyone resist. 13 episodes does not do this show justice. The main character, Jack, was some kind of anthropologist, environmentalist, weight lifter, mechanic. It was fun to watch and reminds me why I loved cartoons in the early 90s. A DVD release of this show is a must!
