Lazer Tag Academy is the story of Jamie Jaren, a thirteen year old Lazer Tag champion from 3010 who journeys back in time to stop the evil Draxon Drear. She joins with her ancestors, Tom, Beth and Nicky Jaren who also share her special powers. For most people, Starlites, the Lazer Tag "guns" are harmless toys. But for others, like the Jarens, they become weapons that allow them, along with the Star Sensor, allow them to travel in time, move object, ect. Lazer Tag Academy is a cartoon based on the Lazer Tag toy and was produced by Ruby Spears Animation. It aired on NBC from Sept. 13, 1986- Aug. 22, 1987 and was canceled only due to the bankruptcy of Worlds of Wonder, the makers of Lazer Tag. In the mid 90's the rights to Lazer Tag Academy were purchased by Saban Entertainment (owned by Haim Saban who did the music for the show) and it re-aired under the title Laser Patrol on the Sci-Fi Channel. In July 2001, Saban's library of more than 6,500 episodes of children's programming was ...Written by
Lazer Tag or as the British say "Laser Tag" was an epic of awesomeness for kids in the '80s...especially played in the dark where all you could really see were the redlights of the star-sensors and ran the risk of colliding with the furniture, the walls, and the support beams in mom and dad's basement.
And then you had that little red light in the sights that did absolutely nothing.
But that was the toy and not the cartoon.
The cartoon was just as cool. Oh you so wanted to grow up and be a gladiator in that laser tag arena didn't you? And that house, for ever onward to this day a raised ranch is a laser tag academy house isn't it? Really, what it is is an awesome cartoon about time travel and lazer guns all in the hands of children led by a child that was a gladiator from the future and related to the family from distant generations that the family takes in without really questioning any of it and....
if you were a kid in the '80s you were more concerned about how fun and cool the whole thing was than you were about trying to examine it.
