classic Saturday morning cartoon
19 July 2017 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Zandor, Tara, and their son Dorno live on a distant planet. With their animal friends, they protect the planet from all enemies as the Herculoids. There is flying dragon Zok with laser beam eyes and tail, powerful ape Igoo, rhino-like Tundro firing energy rocks from its horn, and shape-shifting blobs Gloop and Gleep.

This Saturday morning cartoon is from Hanna-Barbera. It's two 10-min segments. It's action-packed as they seem to have an endless number of enemies kidnapping Tara and Dorno or scheming to take over the planet. The animation is good 60's TV. The creatures are memorable. The plot is simple and pretty much the same. They do recycle many shoots like Zandor using his slingshot and Zok firing its laser beams. This is great for kids.
