"Deep in the South Pacific, a tumultuous and untamed new continent has erupted, spawned by a highly unstable new element, known as Pheta-7. If this powerful new element could be controlled, whoever possessed it would be the undisputed ruler of the world! One man, General Lucas Plague, is determined to hold that title. And it's up to a rugged team of mountaineering experts, lead by commander Mike Summit, to stop him. Employing revolutionary new gravity-lock and laser-cable technology to traverse the ever-changing terrain of the High Frontier, Mike Summit's Sky Commanders, and General Plague's Raiders, are locked in mortal combat, with the fate of the entire world hanging in the balance" Taken from the opening narration.

A short-lived but decent show from HB
6 May 2019 | by roocadillac85See all my reviews

In the 1950s, William Hanna and Joseph Barbera first made a name of themselves in the production of the theatrical Tom and Jerry cartoons. After a few years, they, for some reason, decided to go independent and make cheap television cartoons of which the duo became most famous for.

In the mid-1980s, a toy company by the name of Hasbro released the first of their G.I. Joe series, a high-tech military themed animated TV adaptation of the company's action figures. The series was probably successful that it would have three later incarnations over the decades. And because of the series' success, Hanna Barbera decided to create a G.I. Joe style series which would be Sky Commanders.

Sky Commanders is a show about two opposing teams, the Sky Commanders and the Raiders, who battle each other on a new continent. The leader of the Raiders wants to obtain and exploit a powerful new element from the continent to rule the planet, but the Sky Commanders are determined to prevent that. I best remember the show for the backpacks used by the characters which shoots a cable that connects between two mountains, and allows them to travel on them like a zip line. Like those G.I. Joe shows, the characters shoots lasers instead of bullets, and they also have other high-tech equipment. Anyway, this show still has some originality. Although it's been decades since I last saw this show on television, I was able to see all the episodes online recently.
