A boy, raised by wolves, is found at the age of 10. He is named Lucan and sent to a scientific institution to become civilized. All grown up, he leaves to find his family, but not all are convinced that he won't revert to his wild ways.
In the future, Earth is threatened by various enemies, but none worse than the organization called Shadow, lead by the cybernetic menace known as Umbra. Against this, the Galactic Patrol strives to protect Earth, but the mild mannered young scientist, Robert Simmons, does more. In times of peril, he secretly fights as the leader of the Orbots, a team of unique artificially intelligent robots each equipped with their own unique capabilities that are invaluable in this war. Together, whether individually or united as parts of a giant combined robot, they represent Earth's most powerful defense.Written by

The series drew a lawsuit from the toy company, Tonka, on the allegation of basing the cartoon on their GoBots franchise, which was adapted from Bandai's Machine Robo line. Although that lawsuit proved to be baseless, the legal complications led to Mighty Orbots being canceled after one season. See more »
Maybe you should reprogram me so I don't change shape anymore, Rob.
Oh, don't be silly, Bort. I built you to be versatile. We never know what kind of machine we might need out there.

When one thinks of "the Mighty Orbots" one thinks in my opinion, the greatest 80's animation of that time that lasted only one full season due to them being sued by the makers of the sorry ass "The Gobots". The Orbots paved a way in the formation of anime with a fast paced action with a really soothing jazz fill. I still remember the first episode entitled, "The Magnetic Menace" and I was blown away. My favorite episodes were "The Wish World" and "The Jewel of Targon" in which in both episodes that the five robots have to combined themselves to combat a much larger menace like the Shadow Agent Plamist and the Targonian Jewel Monster respectively. Most people will agree that there will never be a show like this ever again and that they should make this in DVD and I hope that they will do this one day. In fact this show was one of the many best things of the decade that I hated and that is the infamous 80's. Long live the Mighty Orbots, Champions of Justice!!!
