  • show Description
  • In 2086, two peaceful aliens journey to Earth seeking help. In return for Earth's assistance, the aliens share the plans for the planet's first hyperdrive, allowing mankind to open the doors to the stars. With this new technology in hand, a team of unique individuals are assembled to protect Earth and its allies. These courageous pioneers - committed to the highest ideals of justice - set out to preserve law and order across the new frontier. The show began airing in September 1986 as a series of sixty-five 30-minute cartoons, running five days a week. Since then, The Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers has reached cult status, sparking a loyal following. This visionary series combines elements of Westerns, space opera and a sword and sorcery style of fantasy. The well-developed plotline and captivating characters, which pushed the boundaries of children's programming in the '80s, are sure to excite loyal fans as well as a new generation of science fiction and animation enthusiasts. The series was one of the first anime-style shows to be created, storyboarded, voiced and produced in the United States and was animated in Japan by the famed Tokyo Movie Shinsha. This action-packed cartoon series also features the vocal talents of the late Jerry Orbach, Bob Bottone, Laura Dean and Earl Hammond. Galaxy Rangers Ho!moreless
