Just picked this up from Amazon, was at a great price of $9.99. Judging by the artwork looks like a great cartoon with lots of action and cool looking skeletons! Has anyone seen this before? Does it have much of a following?

I've heard of Skeleton Warriors. I've seen a VHS release in thrift stores a number of times. It seems to be an early '90s fantasy show of some sort. I've never seen it and don't remember hearing of it in th. 1990s, but the artwork definitely looks pretty cool. It got a DVD release, so it must have some kind of fan following, even if only a small one. Let us know what the show's like when you get a chance to watch it. Smile

I used to watch and enjoy it. In fact many of us He-Fans liked it due to the similar mixture of fantasy and Sci-fi theme.

It was actually quite popular at the time and still has a cult following. In fact there was recently a Kickstarter program to get new action figures made. I believe it was actually successful, but I'm not sure what the current status of the project is.

If I remember correctly this was one of several shows (Project G.K.R was another) to get screwed over by CBS changing policies. Sometime in the mid nineties the network decided to pull the plug on the entire Saturday morning cartoon lineup -regardless of ratings- and replaced it all with children's educational programming.

What a shame! I hate it when they just don't care.
