A well constructed saturday morning trainwreck brought to you by the talented folks at DIC.
It could only happen in the 80's. Take one of America's fastest rising animation studios. Add the notion of doing a scifi kids show entirely in Japan just to capture the campiness of Japanese directing. Use mostly bluescreen sets to shoot on. And finally, base the entire show on the fad phenomenon of the 80's Photon Laser Gaming and this is what you get. In typical 80's fashion you get 30 minute stories with some decent action and attempt at entertainment (they really did try folks.) which also in typical 80s fashion bodyslam you with a moral message come the end. What wasn't so typical was the fact that it was probably the only kids show to feature knock offs of popular 80's hits, okay this show and that blasted Kidd Video, but anyway what could be better than watching a cool teen space warrior blasting at bad guys with Photon guns and doing cool gymnastics with other colorful space warriors to "Danger Zone". Well its gone now, or maybe not, perhaps when DIC gets its "Entertainment Network" going (whenever that is) they will revive this little gem for the new generation to gawk at.
