16 May 2011 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Apparently, there was a series of toys called Glo Friends in the '80s that spun off this short-lived TV show about cute, benevolent glowworms having to contend with homely, vicious moles called Moligans who spend their days mining. It was mostly one of those shows that tried a little too hard to be cute. I did like the mishaps involving Rook, and I always found it funny when the one glowworm (I don't remember any of their names) drew a botched picture of Nails and sent her into conniptions.

This show probably won't appeal to anyone over the age of ten, but did have a few interesting scenes during its very brief run. Voice artists include Nancy Cartwright (the voice of Bart Simpson), Frank Welker (Fred on "Scooby-Doo" and Ray on "The Real Ghostbusters") and Roger Carmel (Harry Mudd on "Star Trek").

"I kiss the ground you walk on!"
