Between a new extensive documentary, RoboDoc: The Creation of Robocop, and the new game Robocop: Rogue City, which releases tomorrow, it’s been a great time to be a fan of everyone’s favorite cyborg police officer and the perfect time to highlight one of the weirder sides of the Robocop canon, the 1988 animated series.
Like most popular 80s and 90s movies, Bill & Ted got an animated Saturday morning cartoon starting in 1990. The difference between Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventures and other animated shows based on movies was that George Carlin, Alex Winter, Keanu Reeves, and Bernie Casey (who played Mr. Ryan in the films) reprised their roles, at least for the first season.
Following the massive success of Free Willy in 1993, Warner Bros. quickly looked into turning the movie into a franchise, with the sequel, Free Willy 2: The Adventure Home coming out in 1995 and, in between the two films, a truly insane animated series that aired on ABC. You can watch the first episode here for the latest Everything Action Theater.
