This week: Galaxy Rangers
I didn’t watch this show too often when I was younger, but I do remember that the animation was amazing. Watching again, I can see that my memory wasn’t far off.
This show was animated by TMS, the same studio that brought us other great shows like Mighty Orbots and Bionic Six. Released in 1986, this series ran for only one season but it consisted of 65 episodes. It follows, you guessed it, the Galaxy Rangers. They are an elite force of bionic space cowboys, each with specific abilities.
The series might seem a little weird at first, but it has a series long story arc and “revolutionary computer-generated” graphics.
I’ve only watched a few, but they are all on Hulu right now for free! Check ’em out:
