Goofs

The opening narration mentions RoboCop's "bulletproof titanium parts." However, to minimize the violence, none of the weapons in the show fire bullets; they're all energy/laser weapons. See more »

Almost had it...
12 February 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Back in the 80's, it was perfectly acceptable to adapt an extremely violent, R-Rated movie into a kid-friendly cartoon, and Robocop was no exception.

The stories couldn't carry over the violence so instead they relied on the whole "is he a man or a machine?" plot threads. While those aspects stories were done quite well, they were surrounded by simplistic "I wanna kill Robocop" plot lines that brought down the quality of the stories.

This show was a little more mature than shows like "Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends," but not quite at the level of "Batman: The Animated Series," which many of its writers and producers when on to.
