Everything Action Theater: Robocop Alpha Commando
Starting in the 80’s and continuing into the 90’s, there was trend of taking hard R movies and turning them into kid friendly Saturday morning cartoons. The Toxic Avenger, Police Academy and Rambo all had cartoon versions and Alpha Commando is actually the second Robocop cartoon. After a five year hibernation, Robocop is reactivated in the year 2030 by federal agency Alpha Division to help them stop the evil terrorist group DARC or the Directorate for Anarchy and Chaos. You can check out the first part of the pilot episode below, courtesy of Hulu.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
