A time capsule in a cartoon
This show, along with, "Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers," "Dungeon and Dragons," and "Pole Position," made the "must see," list for my sister and I. Don't go looking for anything deep and meaningful or any sort of anime meta-storyline here. It's just fun and great eye candy.

The basic premise is that a new wave-style teen garage band gets taken to another dimension - The Flipside - by an evil mastermind. (The show was better when Masterblaster didn't appear, really.) Over on the Flipside, the teens now appear to be animated (in a very mid-80's style) rather than flesh and blood people. The band teams up with an allergic fairy and they travel in this TARDIS-esque truck that now serves as a home base for their adventures. The plots basically focused of getting to gigs, adjusting to the oddness that was the Flipside, avoiding Masterblaster, and trying to get home.

Oh! They edited out the music videos clips in the home video releases. This is a crying shame. For those of us who didn't have cable Kidd Video showed us what we were listening to. I remember clips from Tears for Fears and Culture Club being featured into the episodes along with the young actors (not animated) putting on their own video at the end of the show.

If you didn't like the flash and dazzle of the '80's, don't bother with this show. If you liked the color and attitude of that decade, or have enough of sense of humor to at least heckle them, sit back and enjoy.
