One of the better short-lived cartoon shows
16 April 2018 | by Spike-WashingtonSee all my reviews

Of all the short-lived cartoons I enjoyed, this one takes home the gold. Along with Road Rovers, Batman Beyond, and Godzilla: The Series, this stands up there with them. Each episode details an actual plot and a rather kick-ass theme, be it science-fiction, fantasy, action-adventure, or horror. And you know what? It worked.

We get Rob Paulsen (of Animaniacs), Richard Moll (of Night Court), and the late but great Tony Jay (of Sierra's King's Quest VI and Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame) as the main characters. If any cartoon in this day and age deserves a reboot this should be on the list. A few years ago I watched some clips of the show on YouTube and it's just as good as I remember it. And the guest stars are so outstanding too. You've got Jim Cummings, Charles Adler, and even Tress MacNeille and Frank Welker. What a mix! And a little of Kath Soucie too. What else is there to say? Give it a chance. You might be pleasantly surprised.
