User Reviews

A good but average cartoon series that was ground breaking.
11 May 2003 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

The one thing that I really liked about this cartoon was that the main character and leader of the C.O.P.S (Central Organization of Police Specialists) team (composed of whites) was a Black man. Most other team oriented cartoons always has one black character usually stereotypical and almost always not the leader (this cartoon being the exception). Now if only other cartoon writers/producers would follow that example and realize that not only white kids watch cartoons and minorities should be shown in strong leadership positions as well. Anyway besides having a positive and strong portrayal of a black male in a cartoon series, it had above average animation. The plots were standard children's cartoon material, which means little character development and conflicts which are resolved within a half hour. Not a bad cartoon and it's worth checking out at least once.
