Saturday Morning Cartoon: Skeleton Warriorson August 11, 2012 at 12:00 am
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…. Skeleton Warriors
Skeleton Warriors was one of those shows that was trying to get the same type of fame as He-Man, only to completely fail instead.
The show itself was very forgettable. Everyone at the time had long since moved on from He-Man onto shows like TMNT, and even then when this show went on air the time of the TMNT series was ending (much to the thanks of shows like the Power Rangers). So the show also had to deal with bad timing as well. I also could never really find Skeletons all that scary as a kid; to me they were just a run-of-the-mill stock bad guy you could find in any video game, comic book, movie, TV series, or toy line at the time.
What do you guys think about the idea of having Skeletons as the main bad guys for a cartoon series? Is it creepy to see skinless people as main characters?
