Very 80s but still very cool
2 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Nearly 20 years after I saw the first episode on television, I still enjoy this cartoon. The characters - both main and supporting - are colorful, and while some of them are more defined than others, none of them is perfect. Doyle could be conceited and petty, and Aimee could be jealous and easily impressed. But that's what made these characters so much fun. They were not the goody-goods that seemed to populate many cartoons of that (and this) era.

Favorites of the series include "Dollars and Sense", where Aimee is swept off her feet by rich playboy Reggie Unicycle; "The Beef Who Would Be King", a standout funny episode that's mostly an examination of the rivalry between Doyle and school bully Beef; and "Beach Blanket Blow-Up", something of a takeoff of the old Frankie Avalon/Annette Funicello beach party movies.

The show isn't about accurate science (there's hardly any), and while it sports a synth-heavy 80s soundtrack, it's not about music, either. It's really about alienation - of Earthlings in an intergalactic school, of teenagers among adults, and of girls among boys (and vice versa).

It's a shame there are so few of these episodes, and that there's no DVD release. My tapes are getting pretty worn.
