It Should've Been on a Saturday: TigerSharks (1987)

A while back, we took an overall look at Rankin-Bass' 1987 anthology series, The Comic Strip. Now, let's take a look back at one of the 4 rotating features, TigerSharks.

TigerSharks followed the formula of Thundercats and Silverhawks, the latter of which Comic Strip replaced on the schedule. In fact, the same cast (Larry Kenney, Earl Hammond, etc.) worked on all of these series. Unfortunately, no individual episodes are available.

As it turns out, the characters were brought back in a way in 2011's Thundercats remake from WB. The TigerSharks were slaves of Mumm-Ra in this series, but the show was cancelled before there was any thought of giving the team another shot.

Here's the intro to the 1987 series.

Rating: B.
