  • 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.
