Benji protects an Alien prince with the help of a robot named Zax.
11 January 2000 | by (Dallas, Texas) – See all my reviews

In this Saturday morning series, Benji is befriended by an Alien Prince (whose name I can't remember) and his floating yellow robot named Zax. However, the Alien Prince is being chased by two evil aliens (one male and one female) and their evil black robot, therefore it is up to Benji to protect them. Most of the plot involved the two evil aliens chasing Benji around town in their black van. This isn't exactly the best show, you can almost see the wires that make the robots float. However, Dallas Miles does turn in a good performance as the evil alien.
