Storyline

When Ming the Merciless returns to wreak havoc, he immediately hunts down the man who caused him to lose his throne in the first place, Flash Gordon. In the process, Ming captures and kills Dale Arden Gordon, but not before she transfers her essence into a special crystal. Flash then gathers together a force made up of The Phantom, Mandrake the Magician and his assistant Lothar. Also joining the heroes are Flash's son Rick, The Phantom's daughter Jedda, Lothar's son L.J. and Madrake's adopted son Kshin. Rick then invents a super computer using the crystal with his mother's essence. Joining Ming is his son Crotan. Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

Fantastic 1980's Fun
22 September 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

The 80's were the best time ever for cartoons and Defenders of the Earth was one of many fantastic shows.

For starters, the Defenders consisted of a team of brilliant heroes. There was Flash Gordon, comic book heroes The Phantom and Mandrake the Magician and Lothar. Each of them had a child who helped them battle the truly diabolical Ming the Merciless.

The shows were really good; the music was brilliant and the action was top-notch. Flash Gordon needs no introduction and neither do the other heroes. Each week they pooled their resources to foil Ming's plans.

If you like 80's cartoons then you will love this.
