Saturday Morning Cartoon: Attack of the Killer Tomatoes
You start to hear the sounds of the morning, the wind rustling the leaves, the chirping of the birds and that’s when you realize what day it is–Saturday! Cartoons! All week long you’ve been starved of cartoons, and now it is your time to feast! You throw off the covers, shove your feet in your slippers and sprint downstairs!
Grab that big bowl of C-3POs, adjust the antennae and plop down on the floor for your weekly dose of animated fun!
This is “Analog Agent Benjamin” coming at you this week with… Attack of the Killer Tomatoes
Does anyone here remember when Fox started its own line-up of Saturday Morning Cartoons? Well I do, and one of the first Fox cartoons I ever saw was Attack of the Killer Tomatoes (based on the Attack of the Killer Tomatoes movies).
This cartoon was one of the “It’s so silly, it’s fun” shows that I would love to watch as a kid. Like the movies, the series was about the “Angry” Scientist Dr. Putrid T. Gangreen and his army of Mutated Killer Tomatoes trying to take over the world, only to be stopped every time by a group of unlikely heroes like Tara Boumdeay (a tomato turned human), F.T. (a fur-covered tomato), Chad Finletter, and Wilbur Finletter (the Great Tomato War veteran).
So, did anyone here see this show when it was on? And if so, what did you think of it?
