An excellent and well-made cartoon- for a change...
I, too, loved this show because for the first time, the characters on this series were far more realistic than any series previously made of this genre. All too often, cartoons of this nature tended to be far too one-dimensional to be truly entertaining. The plots and scripts from action cartoons of this genre from the 60's and 70's had virtually effort put into them by the writers. The D.C and Marvel-based cartoons from those earlier eras were really nothing more than carbon-copies of other similar shows from the Saturday morning lineups. Shows such as "The Herculoids", "Space Ghost", "The Avengers", and others were entertaining to a degree, but they all had one thing in common- they lacked realistic and good character-driven plots that could keep viewers interested from week to week. It was a pleasant surprise to many of us to see this trend slowly end with the newest incarnations of the Justice League in the late 70's and 80's. For the first time, the "Galactic Guardians" shows in 1985 were a refreshing change from what we were used to seeing from the standard fare Saturday morning shows in the 1960's and 70's. The characters were not nearly as one-dimensional, and the plots actually had some thought put behind them. For cartoon lovers like myself, it was a time to finally rejoice in watching superheroes in a cartoon that actually were "human", and had something of substance that we could, and would, want to relate to. The other thing that needs to be said, is the work of outstanding voice-over legends in the business like Michael Bell, Michael Rye, Danny Dark, and others that were the best at what they did. Without great voice talents like those, no cartoon can truly be successful and "legendary" like this one is.
