Blast from the Past

A post on Boing Boing today discusses a website blending science fiction and Westerns. That put me in mind of an old cartoon series called The Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers.

When I was a kid, I loved that show. My brother and our friends used to play Galaxy Rangers on the playground, and we’d argue over who got to be Shane Gooseman, the Clint Eastwood-type anti-hero of the team. I did a little digging and found out that show was made 22 years ago. Holy crap, time flies.

I also found the show’s intro and theme song on YouTube:

How ’80s is that music? Yow.

Looks like the DVD hits next month. I just may be introducing the Midget and the Squirt to this one.

  1. Also one of my favorites … although I was just a little older when it aired. I remember thinking it was a very smart cartoon. I’ll be picking it up on DVD for sure.

    I just hope it stands up! I’ve gone back and watched some cartoons from back in the day and thought “oh wow, this sucks.”
