Every Saturday morning in 1986-87, this was one of the many shows I actually got up early and watched, because it was just so entertaining. I loved Laser Tag in the first place, and the fact that it was being made into an actual cartoon series, with excellent animation and a story that I found to be awesome, I knew it was worth my time. It's just too bad the show didn't last. I would've loved to see it continue into a second season, even a third. But hey, it was the 80's! Us kids back then were lucky if a show lasted 6 months.
Maybe one day this will see a proper DVD release and get the cult staus it deserves.
