Storyline

The cartoon follows roughly the same plot as the films The Toxic Avenger and it's two succeeding sequels. A complete and hopeless nerd, Melvin, falls into toxic waste and becomes Toxie, a hideously deformed mutant of superhuman size and strength. Teaming with other mutants, No-Zone (whose power comes from radioactive sneezes), Major Disaster (he can control plants), Head-banger (Fender, a singing telegram delivery surfer-type, and Dr. Bender, a stereotype mad scientist, fused together - a hybrid character based on the Siamese twins in "Troma's War") and Junkyard, a dog/hobo hybrid, to become The Toxic Crusaders! Together they fight crime in every sense of the word and finally turn their attention on the Apolalypse Inc. of the movies Toxic Avenger Parts II & III, although in the series the chairman is an alien as opposed to Satan. The series follows the attempts of the crusaders to fight crime and be environmentally safe. Written by Andrew Moncrieff <andrew.moncrieff@virgin.net>

Toxic Crusaders 'the movie'
4 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie is merely 3 episodes of the short lived cartoon series loosely based on the cult horror movie "The Toxic Avenger" and it's sequels. Chalk it up to what the hell were they thinking? Of course after seeing this cartoon series about a nerd being turned into a hideously deformed creature of superhuman size and strength, who then teams up with a gang of other mutants to make the world ecologically friendly by doing battle with an alien and his minions, and afterwords buying the endless toy tie ins, kids would want to see the movies that it was based on. But even disregarding that warped notion, the cartoon was ludicrously bad and had an unpalatable 'save the environment' scenario that was only topped by the simply repulsive indoctrinating garbage that was "Captain Planet". Personally I awaiting the cartoon happy house based on "Phantasm" and "Street Trash"

My Grade: D

DVD Extras: An intro by Lloyd Kaufman; Part 1 of the 12 part serial "Rader Men from the Moon"; Chapter 1 of the 12 part serial "Undersea Kingdom"; the same damn Radiation March that's on EVERY Troma DVD (I HATE that thing with a passion now); a promo for Lloyd autobiographical book; a digital version of a Toxic Crusaders comic book; Trailer for "A very Classic Cristmas"
