Trivia

The Mauler, frequently seen in the series, is used erroneously. The original source states that the Mauler was an experimental Battlemech built in the Draconis Combine, and seen far too frequently in the possession of the Combine's long time rivals in the Federated Suns. This is presumably due to budget limitations. The series uses only a few designs throughout the entire series. (Mauler, Wolfhound, Centurion, Awesome and Bushwacker for the Inner Sphere, and the Timber Wolf (Mad Cat), Mad Dog (Vulture), Hunchback IIC and Summoner (Thor) for the Clans). See Below See more »

Could have been better, but cut short.
10 September 2000 | by MirianiSee all my reviews

Despite it's contradictions with the original source, the Battletech Animated Series is a decent enough representation of the series fiction, even drawing upon events from the books (such as the involuntary evacuation of Victor Davion from a battle). The major crippling point was that it was canned just at the end of the first season, leaving the series perpetually at a stand-still. If someone could get the rights to it, I think it would be a good thing to bring it back, especially if using animation similar to that used in Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles, or several of the computer animated series out today. Especially with the popularity of the computer games spun off from it, such as Mechwarrior 3 and 4, and Mech Commander 1 and 2.
