Complete series cast summary:
 Additional Voices (1993) / ... (unknown episodes)


When genius robot technician Ziv "ZZ" Zulander discovers that his employers (RM Corps) have designs on world domination, he quits and tries to warn people about them. Branded an outlaw by their powerful boss Lewis Leon Paradim (LLP), ZZ and his bot-designer sister (Blitzy) are forced into hiding. His one advantage is the chip he developed, which gives his bots their own personalities, and enables them to think for themselves and fight intelligently. This makes them a powerful force against a huge but predictable army of security bots. RM Corps's attempts to upgrade their bots' firepower with their Krang chip are a constant danger. Their bot- designer (the oily Dr Hiss) desperately wants to capture a ZZ bot for examination, and ZZ must also avoid being distracted by LLP's gorgeous security chief, Lady Frenzy.

Did You Know?


The voice of the Security bots was generated by a now-obsolete computer program called "Dr. Sbaitso", which was a demonstration/test for the Sound Blaster sound card. Dr. Sbaitso took the form of a psychiatrist that would take the user's input and return a bit of dubious advice (that was often nonsensical) through the computer's speakers, and could also be told to repeat the user's input.

Another attempt at "american anime", but good nonetheless
5 May 1999 | by (Willingboro, New Jersey) – See all my reviews

I liked Bots Master because it was different from the ones I'm used to, but I also liked it for it's originality and character designs. Sure, the names were a bit odd (ex: Lady Frenzy, Zif Zulander, Dr. Hiss), but they were bearable. However, I was disappointed at the fact that the series ended with a great cliffhanger, and no new episodes were shown since. If only Cartoon Network could pick it up, It would make a lot of people (including me) happy!!
