  • show Description
  • Shortly after Pixar and Disney released the direct-to-video "Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins", this animated series was released. A weekday (and Sunday) series of about 49 episodes was the first to premiere (as part of Disney's "One Too" lineup), but a second set of 13 episodes soon ran parallel to it (as part of ABC's "One Saturday Morning" lineup). Picking up where "The Adventure Begins" left off, the series follows the adventures of Star Command's finest Space Ranger, Buzz Lightyear (...whom we're all probably familiar with...), teamed up with the daughter of the King of Tangea, Ranger Princess Mira Nova (...who possesses the ability to phase, or "ghost" through solid matter, a trait particular to her race...), the burly young native of Jo-Ad, Ranger Booster Sinclair Munchapper (...who, personality-wise, fulfills much the same stereotypical role as Curley did in the Three Stooges, or as Pledge-brother Flounder did in the movie "Animal House"...), and the prototype [e]xpendable/[e]xperimental ( all depends whom you ask...) robotic Space Ranger, XR (...who fulfills much the same stereotypical role as Iago did in the latter two "Aladdin" films, and in the "Aladdin" series, or as Icarus did in the "Hercules" series...if they were robotic and equipped with a "full body crumple zone"...). Throughout the series, there is no mention of Buzz being of the human race, nor is there any mention of Earth, nor of what year it is; the series COULD be set in the future, or it could be set a long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away. Much like "Captain Simian & the Space Monkeys", or "Earthworm Jim: the series", "Buzz Lightyear of Star Command" has both aspects of it for the amusement of children, and aspects of it that slightly more adult folks will find amusing. An example of the latter is the use of the euphemistic interjection "craters!" when under extreme emotional duress, much like the use of the interjection "slag!" in "Transformers: Beast Wars" and the interjection "smeg!" in "Red Dwarf". Such items as this, along with many nice minor "tips o' th' hat" to trademark mainstays of science fiction productions, allow for a wide audience of viewers to enjoy "Buzz Lightyear of Star Command". It orginally aired Saturdays at 10:30 on ABC.moreless

    • Buzz: Buzz lightyear Mission log: Zurg's dark shadow looms over the... could you not do that? XR: (mimicking Buzz): Buzz lightyear Mission log: Zurg's dark shadow looms over the... could you not do that?

    • Buzz: Lets go people. XR: People? That does include me right?

    • Buzz: Buzz Lightyear Mission Log: We've searched this gasious planetoid from top to bottom with no signs of the missing LGM's. Warp Darkmatter (Comes from behind honking horn): Come on buddy no one ever reads these reports. Buzz: Procedure separates us from the wicked forces of Chaos. Warp: If it means less paper Work I'll take Chaos.

    • Mira: Wow! I didn't know a Star Cruiser could make a move like that! Buzz: Niether did Zurg. Evil Commander Nebula: I'll make a note of it. Mira: We're surrounded. XR: The guy is supposed to be an evil genius and the best he can come up with is a Ventriloquist act, what's next? Evil Juggling? Evil Commander Nebula: Farewell Lightyear. Mira: They're retreating. XR: Obviously my caustic tounge cought them to the quick. Booster: I'm getting a funny energy reading. Buzz: Mira Check the hull. Mira: We've go a bomb! Booster & XR: A bomb! Buzz: Perfect.

    • XR: See this is where medal arms come in handy, I always like to, Ahhh!

    • Buzz: Of course, amnesia, Evil Clone, Android repleca, OK it's so obvious, Zurg's mind controld ray, he got to you first. Warp Darkmatter:(talking with Buzz) No, No, No, actually I went to him.

    • Buzz: (Buzz firing his laser at the door...nothing happens) Blast, lasercarbonic alloy. Warp Darkmatter: Let me try.(Knocks on the door, a grub answers) Grub: Yes? (Darkmatter slams the door, 1 quarter open) Warp Darkmatter: After you (Buzz walks in).

    • Buzz: There's only one way for me to finish this mission - alone. Booster: But Buzz, that's against the rules. In the Star Command mission manual, it clearly states that no ranger is supposed to go into action without backup. I think it's Section 6, Subsection Delta. Buzz: Actually, it's Section 6, Subsection Gamma. XR: He's right, big guy. Subsection Delta's the dress code. Incidentally, why can't we have nose rings? Buzz: Because nose rings are for punks, little mister! Mira: Well, if you can take on Zurg alone, I don't see why XR can't get a nose ring. XR: I was just asking a question. I'm not the one getting a nose ring. Booster: Then who's getting a nose ring? (gasp) That's why Buzz wants to ditch us! Buzz: I AM NOT GETTING A NOSE RING! NOBODY IS GETTING A NOSE RING! It's against the rules! Mira: Which apparently don't apply to you. Buzz: Of course they apply to me! The rules apply to everyone. Mira: Great! Then you're not facing Zurg alone and we'll be your backup. Buzz: Errrrgh! I want the three of you off this planet now! And that's an order! Booster/XR: Yes sir! Buzz: Ranger Nova? Mira: Yes, sir... Buzz: Thank you.

    • 42: The Answer To Life, The Universe, And Everything
      Readers of The Hitchhickers Guide To the Galaxy will know that the The Answer To Life, The Universe, And Everything is 42. Buzz has ship number 42. Co-incidence?

    • B Deck cafeteria: The "B Deck" could be a reference to the "Star Trek" movies, in which the ships' decks were labeled A-Z.

    • Brain Pod: "That's not a spacecraft, that's just a weather balloon." Reports of crashed UFO in Roswell, New Mexico were officially denied by the military and attributed instead to sighting of a crashed weather balloon.

    • Name: Professor Triffid This could be a reference to the book and movie Day of the Triffids, in which killer, mobile plants wreack havoc on society after Earth is blinded by a meteor shower.

    • NOS-4-A2 is a joke on the famous vampire, Nosferatu. But unlike NOS-4-A2, Nosferatu didn't turn his victims into vampires.

    • Warp Darkmatter: "Oh, great... it's the tin toy." ... "See ya, Tin Toy!" Likely a reference to "Tin Toy", an early Pixar short (and the first computer animated film ever to win an Academy Award).

    • Booster: Leaning Tower of Commerce This is an infamous structure in Pisa, Italy.

    • "Oil Can... When XR wakes up in one of the Greys' labs, he says "Oil can." This is reference to the Tin Man's first words in the original "Wizard of Oz" film.
