Robocop: The Animated Series (1988)

In the last edition of Time Capsule Thursdays we took a look at the toy line called Robocop & The Ultra Police!  That toy line also had an animated series to sell the toys.  What better way to sell toys based on an ultra violent movie than a cartoon series for kids based on the same flick!  We aren't sure what Marvel Productions was thinking either but they are the ones who produced the animated adventures of the cyborg.  Several changes were made to the story line in order to make it more kid friendly including Robocop and the other characters shooting laser weapons instead of bullets.  The show only made it through 12 episodes and was cancelled after that.  It is is a nostalgic trip however down memory lane for those that remember it however!
