    Wow. Not many people remember The Mighty Orbots, but I sure do. Aired on ABC, this was one of the "big robot" genre shows that originally aired in the US but was animated in Japan. The animation was superb for a television show. Featuring five robots named Tor, Bort, Bo, Bo, Ono, and Crunch. When they combined, they formed a very cool-looking, giant robot that could fight. The giant robot theme was very popular in the early 80s, thanks to that theme being big in the late 70s Japan animantion. Unfortunately the show only had 12 episodes due to a lawsuit threatened by Tonka for alleged copyright infringement (GoBots) but I felt it then and I feel it now: GoBots sucked, and appealed to the less intelligent children out there. And it failed miserably for the much better conceived Transformers. And yes, I felt this way even at the tender ages of 7 through 9 yrs old. Now its time to bring the Orbots back. I believe Disney now has the rights....
