Tooniversary: Robocop (1988)

A year after the first film of the same name, Robocop was rebooted as a Saturday morning syndicated series, produced by Marvel Productions. That, for fans, was the good news. The bad news was that not enough people watched the show, which was cancelled with only 12 episodes made. Just the same, the cyborg lawman would return in another series a few years later.

Liberties were taken with the series, most promiently the use of gang leader Clarence Boddicker, who was killed off in the movie, but brought back for the cartoon, perhaps to give viewers a link between the movie and the series.

No rating. Never saw the show.

I vaguely remember this. Might have seen 1 or 2 episodes but that's it. Totally forgot about this.
