Welcome back to our series of potshots focusing on that Hasbro toyline cartoon of 1987…Visionaries: Knights of the Magical Light. We only have four more episode left to review. Do our heroes, the Spectral Knights, finally act intelligently? We shall we see as we review the tenth episode of the series: The Trail of Three Wizards.
Welcome back to 80’s Cartoon Potshots. We are now at episode nine out of thirteen of Visionaries: Knights of the Magical Light with Horn of Unicorn, Claw of Dragon. Let’s see if our “heroes”, the Spectral Knights, can finally avoid being mentally challenged. After the previous eight episodes, I can not be too hopeful.
Welcome back to 80’s Cartoon Potshots. Today we reach the halfway point in our look at the episodes of Visionaries: Knights of the Magical Light, with episode 7: The Overthrow of Merklynn. We already have an idea why the cartoon series/toy tanked, so let’s see if this episode confirms the hypothesis. We already kinda know what it is about just from the title.
Welcome back to 80’s Cartoon Potshots, where we look back and review 80’s cartoon. Today we are continuing our series on the Visionaries, with episode six: Lion Hunt. Sounds like Leoric might be in trouble. Continue reading
Welcome back to 80s Cartoon Potshots. Continuing with our synergy with D&D Saturday, we are looking and reviewing the fifth episode of Visionaries, entitled Feryl Steps Out. This has some D&D feel in the beginning, and some outright stupid by almost everyone in this episode.
Welcome back to another Visionaries Potshots, that great 80’s cartoon that is mostly forgotten but is enjoyable to remember. Today we look at and review the fourth episode, entitled The Price of Freedom. I remember this being a slightly painful episode to watch…maybe it’s better than I recall. Continue reading
Welcome back to 80’s Cartoon Potshots. Today we once again look at the Visionaries with their third episode: Quest for the Dragon’s Eye. This is basically the last episode of the origins trilogy, with ten more episodes to follow. When last we saw our heroes, they risked drowning due to insulting one of the bad guys. Do they survive? Well… Continue reading
Welcome back to 80s Cartoon Potshots, where we make snarky reviews of 1980s cartoons. Today we look at the first episode of C.O.P.S. No, not the original reality show where we see real-life cops having to arrest people. This was an 1980s cartoon of a near-future where a Central Organization of Police Specialists have been gathered to deal with the worst criminals ever. The toys all had a cap-pistol gimmick. Yes, this was another failed attempt by Hasbro to have another strong toyline in the last half of the 1980s, along with Jem, Inhumanoids, and Visionaries. The cartoon, airing in 1988-1989 was briefly brought back in 1993 and was then called Cyber C.O.P.S., to distinguish itself from the reality show. Is it any good? We shall see. Continue reading
Welcome back to 80s Cartoon Potshots. Today we look at the second episode of Visionaries, entitled The Dark Hand of Treachery. In many ways the first three episodes of the series was a origin trilogy similar to the one that Transformers G1 had, except that Transformers went on to have many episodes, bot in G1 and in subsequent renewals of the franchise. Sadly, thirteen is all Visionaries had. So we continue on with reviewing the series, Potshots style, with one a week until we finish the series, and always on Sunday to better go along with D&D Saturday. Continue reading
