At the beginning of each episode, Kidd Video and the rest of his basement-band are live-action characters who get forced into a bizarre and animated world by the hands of the evil (and animated) record producer Master Blaster. They become animated themselves, but always find their way back to the "real world" and foil the nefarious plans of Master Blaster, and just in time to play a song before the show ends.

Totally Underrated Cartoon!
16 March 2017 | by Antoine1976See all my reviews

I loved this show as a kid, and I still love it today. Kidd Video is one of those Underrated gems that got overshadowed by the bigger cartoons, like Transformers, G.I. Joe, and Thundercats to name a few. The concept rocked, the stories were fun, the music was epic and the cast was exceptional.
