Does anyone remember Mighty Orbots? I have a few episodes. This cartoon came out in 1984. I love this cartoon. I was actually a bigger fan of Mighty Orbots than I was of Voltron. Unfortunately, the Orbots did not last long. Sad

I have heard of The Mighty Orbots, but I can't recall watching the series. I'm sure others on this forum remember it though.

One of my favorites and I'm currently trying to get the rights to release an official dvd set-

http://www.80scartoons.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5063



They ended so abruptly due to a lawsuit from Bandai and Tonka against mattel for trying to produce the Orbots toy- it was an illegal use of the God Mars combiner toy from Japan, which at the time Tonka had exclusive rights to produce in the US (but never did of course). It's really a crazy story and basically Bandai tricked them into this lawsuit

Welcome to the forums Mikey! I watched that cartoon a few times, though not too much.

But If I recall correctly, even the unaired pilot was uploaded somewhere in here. Should be an interesting scavenger hunt! Razz
