Storyline

Originally serialized in the syndicated _Super Week_, which began this serial with the tug-of-war scene 17 minutes in, paired with the first five episodes of _Robotix_, which after the first week became _Super Sunday_, (_Jem_ and _Inhumanoids_ were also rotated in and out), this series depicts a graduate student named Jennifer pursued by goons of millionaire industrialist Adrian Ravenscroft, who hides Ponce de Leon's map to the Fountain of Youth inside Bigfoot in the midst of a stunt driving show. This forces Yank Justice and Bigfoot, Red & Redder and Black Gold, and Professor D. & Dilly and the Orange Blossom Special, into a cross-country trek to rendezvous with Ravenscroft at the Fountain and stop him. Ravenscroft is so powerful he can impose his will onto county sheriff's offices and get the group arrested. They are saved by Close McCall and his souped-up stunt car War Lord, so he joins the team after initial resistance the first time he tried. Written by scottandrehutchins@yahoo.com

Goofs

Either identical twins Red and Redder keep switching clothes with one-another when no one else is changing, or the animators forgot which one was which, as their names and personalities switch back and forth. See more »

"Bigfoot and the Muscle Machines" was one of those 80s cartoons, part of a seemingly endless stream from the US, that pitted a group of superheroes against a scene-chewing bad guy. Based on a toy by Hasbro, the crime fighting team here were Yank Justice and his giant machine 'Bigfoot', alongside a pair of foxy red-headed twins, and the silver-haired Prof D. In the UK video version (presumably a amalgamation of a few episodes) they help out with preventing billionaire Mr. Big getting his hands on the fountain of youth.

It's all rather predictable, but makes a change from the usual space setting by having humans battling humans, and Yank Justice's sadistic streak is a bonus, "Are we gonna talk? Or munch knuckle?!". The animation is shoddy though, and it's all a bit tedious after Bigfoot has got out of each predicament by driving over everything in sight. Probably better in bitesize episodes rather than this 50 minute marathon.
