This spin-off of Disney's Hercules (1997) follows Hercules' many labors during the years he spent training how to be a hero under the tutelage of satyr Philoctetes. Olympian Gods and Goddesses, as well as Hades and Pegasus, often visit him.
The further (animated) adventures of Buzz Lightyear of "Toy Story" and "Toy Story 2." Buzz, along with fellow Star Command Rangers Mira Nova, Booster, and XR, fight to keep the universe safe from the evil clutches of Emperor Zurg and his henchman, Warp Darkmatter.Written by
BUZZ LIGHTYEAR is a very cool cartoon. I think it's cool how they took a simple yet fascinating character from a successful movie and gave him his own show. But instead of giving him his completely own world, like most other spin-offs do, we're at least a little familiar with the Buzz Lightyear elements (Emperor Zurg, the Galactic Alliance, the 3 budding martians). It fits in perfectly with the other great One Saturday Morning cartoons (WEEKENDERS, RECESS, TEACHER'S PET, PEPPER ANN, MICKEY MOUSE). The ideas are very creative, and with a show taking place both in space and within the boundaries of the galaxies planets, anything can happen. I hope this show is popular among other kids, teens, and maybe even adults as well. I read TV Guide's review, and it seemed pretty good, pointing out it's creativeness and energy. I hope it lasts for a while. Adam Carolla does a great job as Commander Nebula, Larry Miller hits the nail on the head with XR, Stephen Furst is goofy as Booster, Nicole Sullivan is a natural with Mira Nova, and Wayne Knight is disguised awesomely as the evil Emperor Zurg. Patrick Warburton is very, very impressive as Buzz Lightyear, a hard pair of shoes to fill in after Tim Allen did a beautiful job with him in the 3 movies. Watch Buzz Lightyear on One Saturday Morning on ABC, or on Disney's 1 Too, weekdays and Sundays. To infinity and beyond, beoch!
