TV Shows - Mighty Orbots

Mighty Orbots is an American/Japanese Super robot animated series. The series is aired from September 8, 1984 to December 15, 1984 on Saturday mornings in the United States on ABC. The series lasted only a single season of thirteen episodes, mostly due to a lawsuit between the show's creators and toymaker Tonka, who accused them of basing the cartoon on their GoBots franchise. The 23rd Century, the future is a time of robots and aliens. The people of Earth have banded together along with several other peaceful alien races to promote peace throughout the galaxy, forming the United Planets. As part of the United Planets, the Galactic Patrol - a body of law-enforcers - works to maintain order, under the leadership of Commander Rondu. However, a powerful criminal organization called SHADOW is out to destroy both the Galactic Patrol and the U.P. Led by Umbra, a massive cyborg-computer, SHADOW employs sinister agents and incredible schemes to attack and someday rule over all corners of the known-galaxy. There is one thing that helps to fight against SHADOW: ingenious inventor Rob Simmons - secretly a member of the Galactic Patrol - creates six special robots who can use their unique powers to battle against the forces of Umbra. Together, these robots can unite to form a giant robot called Mighty Orbots, to fight for truth, justice and peace for all.

1 This was an incredible show from the 80's- it got sabotaged by two things. 1- No Toy tie ins-, the lack of extra $$ to be made in a toy marketing TV era made it less desirable to be on TV. 2- the GO BOTS's parent company sued them for copyight violation since ORBOT was in their view close to GO-Bot. Even though they had NOTHING in common (even the name!?) and GOBOTS sucked the Fish bone hard- this well made high quality well written show died a quick 13 episode death- thank god for DVD- never boned. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on February 18, 2010, 7:06 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
