The evil Dr Gangreen has created an army of mutant killer tomatoes to help him take over the world. During the mutation process he throws out one that's too big and slow, but it mixes with another experiment, and is transformed into a pretty girl! She escapes with one of the tomatoes, is chased, and gets rescued by a pizza-delivery boy. Together, they must try to thwart Gangreen's plots and rescue his tomatoes when possible, aided by Tara's mutant vegetable powers. Written by Cynan Rees <cynanrees@hotmail.com>

Attack of the Killer Tomatoes: Fails on too many fronts
4 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

I really liked the Attack Of The Killer Tomatoes movie franchise, it managed four films ranging from the 1970's to the 1990's and a certain amount of it's essence was captured in this Saturday morning cartoon.

With the same characters, couple of the same voices and much of the same humour it showed real promise until you realised how watered down it was for the kids.

Plenty of the humour will have gone over children's heads but not enough of it. And for that reason it wasn't overly appealing to either kids or adult fans of the movies thus it only lasted 2 seasons.

Sadly the show nose dived further with the second season which was made by different people. The animation quality dipped, the writing was full on kids show and lost the original feel and the continuity died a death as if the writers had never watched the first season.

Due to this the viewing figures dropped and the show was swiftly cancelled. Though it never met its potential this was a shame as if the show had continued the way season 1 had it may well have reached cult status.

For fans of the franchise I'd give this a lesser recommendation but for anyone else it's a hard pass.

The Good:

First series does continue the movies theme

John Astin is great

The Bad:

Every episode is a mixed bag of conflicting demographics

Second season is rather weak

Things I Learnt From This Show:

The Professor isn't mad, he's angry

The Season 2 writers need to retire from the industry

If a tomato eats and spits out a human they become a tomato but if a tomato eats and spits out a tomato they become human. Wait, what!?
