Saturday Supercade: Mighty Orbots (1984)

Sure, this is an incredible cartoon from ABC back in the 80’s, a series that sadly didn’t last near as long as it should have. But did you know that when the Retroist contacts all of us various writers on the Retroist Phone, the theme song from Mighty Orbots lets us know he is calling?

Thanks to Rm0120 over on deviantART for this illustration of the team from the Mighty Orbots series.

A big thanks to Brunner154 for the episode on YouTube posted below.

    I vagely remember this show, but after all the recent buzz I had to check it out. The epic Dezaki animation is mindblowing, and probably the best TV will ever produce!
    After buying it at a con it quickly became one of my favorite shows. The characters move really well even when they sit around! It’s a rare treat!
