Storyline

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>

A superb show
25 June 2002 | by (South Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

This was one of the greatest cartoons of my childhood, I wish it'd run for a bit longer because it was funny and very well written. Based loosely on the second film "Return of the killer tomatoes" it only ran for 2-3 series, and I'm pretty sure the second series was also called "Return of the killer tomatoes" Had the very catchy theme tune from the film but only John Astin returned to voice it. It would be great to see it again but I imagine it's nearly impossible to track it down now. Like the other great cartoon series based on a low budget film, "Toxic crusaders", it added to the original film/s
