C.O.P.S. Season 1 DVD: Review
Anybody remember this show? Well, I sure do, and I got the box set to prove it. A bit on the quality-challenged side, I must confess, but if you enjoyed the show back in 1990 then you might want to check it out.
COPS was an animated series produced by DiC for the purpose of selling a new Hasbro toyline. But hey, what cartoons in the 80â??s and 90â??s werenâ??t made to sell toys? COPS was, in a way, Hasbroâ??s successor to G.I. Joe (which was waning in popularity by the 90â??s), featuring similar characters, trite public service announcements (â??COPS for Kidsâ?) and some recycled plots. Interestingly enough, the characters and their backgrounds were all created by Larry Hama, the same guy who created the characters for G.I. Joe (and wrote the Marvel Comic, too). Due to this, thereâ??s the occasional homage to certain G.I. Joes in there, such as the obvious similarities between Mutt & Junkyard and Bowser & Blitz.
