My portable stepper that I bought at Brookstone in NJ broke this evening. On it I watched countless episodes of He-Man (to become big and powerful), Galaxy Rangers, casts on the TWiT and Old Time Radio networks, and Galaxy Express 999 among many other things. This is my farewell song to it.
Galaxy Rangers was a wild-west space cartoon that ran in the mid- to late-80s in the US. A US-created cartoon, its anime-styling, steampunk tendencies and gritty storylines make it one well worth checking out. The series is to get a nice repackaging this coming May1.
Now more in keeping with the usual bunk we post here on Protozoic, I give you the following clip from the “Heart of Tarkon” episode. Whatever is actually occurring here, it seems to me the writers missed a good joke of not having the incident occur to the character Shane Gooseman (the character to whom it happens in the clip is Walter “Doc” Hartford).
Currently only 4 DVDs, containing 16 of the 65 total shows, are available. If you are really keen to get watching some Galaxy Rangers, you can get them from Netflix. ↩
