The Phantom, descendent of a line of African superheroes, travels to New York City to thwart a wealthy criminal genius from obtaining three magic skulls which would give him the secret to ultimate power.
Pursued by intergalactic warlord Krulos and his Rulons, human Valorians fly through a wormhole and end up on the prehistoric Earth. Krulos follows and becomes stuck in prehistory as well. Both sides build dinosaur armies and engage.
For 24 generations the Phantom has been a mystical figure who protects the jungles of Africa with the help of the Bantu tribe. In reality, he is a family of superheroes, each passing on the mantle and responsibility of being the Phantom to their son, making it seem as if there was one Phantom who had lived for centuries. Now, in 2040, the Phantom has moved to a new jungle - Metropia, one of the surviving homes of mankind after the resource wars. The 24th Phantom is Kit Walker, and he continues the Phantom's legacy in the struggle against Maximum Inc., a mega-corporation determined to salvage a small part of the world even if they must destroy the rest to do it. At the same time, the new Phantom must deal with other challenges, including the terrorists of the free orbital movement, the mystery of his father's death, various rogue agents with their own agendas, and Sagan Cruz - his girlfriend who is part of a special police unit charged with hunting down the Phantom.

I remember this show appearing sporadically on Indian television (which had a ridiculously poor selection of good cartoons) when I was a kid. Whenever it appeared it was practically an event for me and my brother; we loved it. It was just so cool and different, and I do remember it being totally unlike the tacky cartoons that made up most of kids programming in those days.
Its also different from other quality cartoons like WB's Batman or TMNT. Its really atmospheric and the ideas and sci-fi tech are very unique and cool (for example. Phantom uses these two cylinders as guns/weapons).
The character designs are a little weird. Everyone is quite... elongated.
Totally recommend it, I hope it comes out on DVD so I can catch the episodes I missed.
