Bucky O'Hare and the Toad Wars

Show Summary

"Bucky O'Hare" was set in the Aniverse, a parallel dimension inhabited by anthropomorphic animals. Each planet in the Aniverse was home to a different species of animal - Aldebaren had Cats, Rigel 5 had Koalas, Betelgeusia had Berserker Baboons and so on. Bucky O'Hare himself was a green Hare from the planet Warren, which, at the beginning of the series, has just been taken over by the evil Toads. This prompts Bucky to start a crusade against the Toads, a mission in which he is aided by his friends Deadeye Duck (a former space pirate), Jenny (a Cat with psychic powers), Bruiser (a Betelgeusian Berserker Baboon and brother to former engineer Bruce, who was accidentally zapped into another dimension in the first episode), Blinky (a one-eyed android) and Willy DuWitt (a human boy who can enter the Aniverse via a photon accelerator he built)

  • Entertaining if brief 90s animated series.

    7.5
    Bucky O'Hare and the Toad Wars was an early 90s animated series that was based on a comic of the same name. It's a Star Wars-like space opera where the Rebellion side is made of mammals (dogs, hares, wolves, baboons, etc) and the evil Empire are the toads (brainwashed into loyalty by the evil computer KOMPLEX). Tossed into this mess is a human boy from our world, Willy DuWitt, who travels between worlds using a photon accelerator from his room.



    Bucky O'Hare lasted only 1 season of 13 episodes, cashing in on the Ninja Turtles craze by offering another action series featuring talking animals. Funny enough, it still proves reasonably entertaining today. Yes the animation is stilted and the stories never take themselves too seriously, but by and large this is a space opera that had a sense of scale and good use of serialization. The season centers around Bucky's attempts to free his people and home planet from inslavement, which is actually accomplished in the finale. I wouldn't mind owning a DVD of this series, or seeing a revival done ala the recent Ninja Turtles series by 4Kids. There's potential here that in the right hands, could make for some entertaining saturday morning television.moreless
  • Based around the comics, Bucky O' Hare was a pioneer sci-fi cartoon, long before INVADER ZIM or PET ALIEN.

    Despite the rather poor animation, Bucky is brought about as your everyday space hero, fighting the Hitler-like KOMPLEX, who wishes to turn the entire Aniverse into a giant ecosystem.



    Bucky O' Hare, with the assistance of his crew, continue to fight against KOMPLEXS' autocratic Empire and are revered across the cosmos as true heroes.



    Even though there was only one season ever made, attempts have been made to resurrect the cartoon, and today, it partly continues as a Web Series at:
