Show Summary

M.A.S.K., the cartoon, was brought to us by the people at DIC Enterprises, Inc. It aired between 1985 and 1988 as far as I know. I'm not too sure what time it was on at elsewhere, Recently, M.A.S.K. has been back on TV again in various places in Europe. If anyone has more precise information on M.A.S.K. airings in other places both past and present and any show info you have you can contribute it by going to the right page and pressing the button, please feel free to contribute what know.

The cartoon focused mainly on the vehicles and characters from the original 1985 toy line. Later on, there were also some appearances from some 1986 vehicles. (Interestingly enough, I don't think they ever made a toy of Shark, a vehicle that was seen on the cartoon quite a bit...) The last season of the show apparently featured a racing theme to correspond with the racing series M.A.S.K. toys. I have seen most of these episodes however. From what I think, they were quite lame, mainly due to the fact that every single episode took place at a race track!

Please everyone, before you contribute please keep the following in mind:

In Synopsis's please give the location.

When using the words M.A.S.K. & V.E.N.O.M. please always use the upper case and be sure to put the periods after every letter, I don't like to keep putting them.

When you use the words M.A.S.K. & V.E.N.O.M. Always remember to put a period after the last letter, this is a common mistake.

Try to make all the synopsis's the same size like you did with the first one zarius.

  • Awsome Show!! I had the Three Wheeler with the Flaps that open with the Lever hahahahhhahaa

    I actually had the 3 wheeler with the front that has the lever to pull and open up the wings like the red car that flys. I had all the stickers, i cant really remember any episodes, but i do know i did in fact love it when i was young. all i can remember is the red car that flys and there was a father and sone thing going on in the team. that show was awsome and i wish i could find it on dvd for keep sake. anyone have any idea where i can find it?

  • One of the best and most underrated cartoon of the 80's and one of my all-time favourites.

    A mixture of Transformers and GI Joe, MASK was thoroughly entertaining to watch. Each episode featured a plot by Miles Mayhem and VENOM to take over the world, steal valuable treasures or commit acts of terrorism. MASK leader Matt Trakker would then call in other MASK agents from their every-day civillian jobs and with the aid of their advanced combat vehichles and masks that shoot lasers or allow the abillity to phase, thwart VENOM's plans.

    The animation in most episodes ranged from well animated to poorly animated, but this 80's classic remains my all-time favourite. Everytime i hear the MASK theme, i get a huge tweak of nostalgia, even from the days when i was a wide-eyed 5-year old watching Thunderhawk take off or Bruce Sato use his Lifter mask. They don't make them like this anymore!

    I was lucky to purchase the first 38 episodes of Season 1 on DVD recently, and the nostalgia is flooding back. Roll on volume 2!moreless
  • mask where the illusion is the ultimate weapon!

    even though this show ran from 1985-1986 i faithfully watched it everyday after school. i mean where do u see a camaro that turns into a flying automobile with wings.or a yamaha motorcycle that converts into a chopper. i miss the show and wish it would come back on again. even it airs on the cartoon network!
  • Secret team of specialists use special vehicles that convert to another vehicle.

    I've rediscovered this fantastic series. It was a good original idea. Some early 80s cartoons were horrible (I'm looking at you He-Man). They relied on constant stock footage and reusing the same animation. That or the acting was bland (He-Man again). MASK was different and a cool concept.

    A group of individuals fight an evil terrorist organization know as VENOM. The group have regular day jobs (GI Joes did not). But at any moment they may be called into action. They drop what ever they are doing (making a pizza, fixing a car, in a meeting, etc) and just leave to stop the bad guys. They use helmets with special powers that can do things like make a hologram or shoot fire. They all drive different vehicles that can turn into a new vehicle. The Thunderhawk turned from a car to a plane, a motorbike turned into a helicopter.

    The show was well acted and had good toys that actually looked like the show. What you saw on the show was what you got in the toy.

    I'd love to see them revamp this classic toy and remake a new version of it.moreless
  • It was a pretty good show.

    I found my old videotapes of it a few months ago and have been transferring it to DVD. It's the first time I've seen the shows in years and they're just as good now as they were back then. I'm loving getting to watch how the episodes unfold by watching them in order. This site has been a big help with that. The episode lists with descriptions (some of which need more detail) are a pretty valuable tool. I'm still not the biggest fan of the racing series. There's just something wrong with the idea of the villians knowing the identities of MASK agents.moreless
