    The main characters were:
    - A british swordsman
    - A japanese car racer
    - An american cowboy
    - and a girl whose father desgned their giant robot - Renegade

    Well, since Vukodlak said he's away for a few days, I googled it, and it appears that Enagonios is right, so I guess it's his turn.

    Awright. here's mine:

    The Age of Science has ended, and the Second Age of Magic has begun. The dark age for civilization has resulted in feudal societies being formed which wage war upon one another. Yet thanks to the great wizard Merklynn, 14 Knights have gained magical powers of transformation. The group is divided between the good Spectral Knights and the evil Darkling Lords.

    ah yes, back in the good old days when cartoons were still good ;)

    Ooh I think I remember that show - it is Visionaries, the show based upon the line of action figures with hologram logos on them, right?

    It was the same with the Zoids cartoon. That was based on the toys rather than vice-versa.

    Yeah, many of the 80s cartoons were made to be commercials for already created lines of toys - He-Man and the Masters of the Universe was probably the most blatant example but there are many to choose from.

    As for my next show - every episode saw the crew of the Mean Machine resorting to underhanded tactics and losing badly when they backfired - always leading to one member of the crew cursing while the other stood there snickering at him.

    It is Wacky Races, as far as I know they didn't use the Mean Machine in Dastardly and Muttley.

    Thanks Takara. Ok this one's a golden oldie and it's a HUGE softball for anyone who's ever watched Nick at Nite :p .


    This is an excerpt from the TV show's intro/theme song:


    "Goodbye grey skies
    Hello blue.
    There's nothing can hold me
    When I hold you.
    Feels so right,
    It can't be wrong.
    Rockin' and rollin' all week long."


    Like I said, it's really easy.
