Buzz Lightyear of Star Command

Show Summary

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 (...it 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.

  • With plenty of funny moments, great stories, and excellent characters, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command proves that some spin offs can work if done right

    Buzz Lightyear of Star Command was the first and only spin off based on the movie series, Toy Story. You know how most spin offs are bad? Well Buzz Lightyear proves there are some spin offs that work. The show is about Buzz Lightyear, a Space Ranger, who works with 2 aliens, Mira and Booster, and a robot named XR. Together they defend the galaxy from the evil emperor Zurg and other galactic menaces. The premise may not sound interesting at first, but it has plenty of original ideas that make the show very watchable. All of Buzz's team members are funny and memorable. XR always overreacts resulting in him exploding. Booster is a klutz, and Mira tries to be serious but fails and ends up being fooled most of the time. The three eyed aliens from the movies are also in the series and provide good comedy as well. Zurg is also humorous with him providing some comedy by acting stupid, but he is mostly evil and menacing. There are also evil spirits and curses and robots that are trying to take over the galaxy as well. The artwork and animation is extremely well done. The planet and set designs are unique and original if not inspired, and the characters have interesting designs. There is also character development for most of the characters of the show and we learn about them as the show goes on. My only complaint was that in a little less than a year, this show got canceled. Why? This show was just brilliant and was beloved by many. It shouldn't have gotten the ax so soon and should have been on for at least 6 years before canceling it. This is truly a wonderful show that never had a chance and needs to be brought back. If you can find this show on TV, check it out or see if you can watch it on the internet. I highly recommend this show to you.moreless
