My favourite TV show as a kid for sure
26 November 2006 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

"At last your highness, planet Earth" says Zax to prince Yubi. The cute little prince (Christopher Burton) descends his spaceship and sees Benji. Then in a flashback we see what has happened on Anthar, Yubi's home planet where a tyrant has overthrown his family: "This world is mine now. All my enemies are in prison, except for young prince Yubi who has escaped to a primitive planet called Earth. Go there and get him!" "Dog - a four-legged mammal indigenous only to this planet. Used for chasing balls, fetching newspapers and ... that" explains the droid Zax as Benji barks and licks Yubi's face. And so starts every episode of this super cult series from the mid-eighties. I was so delighted to see it is out on DVD. The story seems a bit flat now in twenty years and the costumes are so camp, but this series still has a special place in my heart. The special effects that once got me excited are a bit out-of-date now, but the moral lessons in the episodes are still valid and besides it is pure fun
