Earlier in the week I published a post about the Extreme Ghostbusters and how the oft-forgotten ’90s show deserves a revival. Well, tonight I’ve got three more ‘toons for you, all in need of a revival.

First up…

SWAT Kats: The Radical Squadron 

Created by Christian and Yvon Tremblay and produced by Hanna-Barbera, SWAT Kats: The Radical Squadron ran for two seasons between 1993 and 1995. The show – which revolved around vigilante pilots, T-Bone and Razor – featured a fine selection of villains, some awesome stories and one kick-ass jet!

SWAT Kats never received the recognition it deserved when it first aired, which is a shame as it was bloomin’ brilliant. It most certainly deserves a comeback.

Captain Planet

Surely this one is a no-brainer? The world needs a hero right now and environmentally inclined super guy Captain Planet is exactly that hero.

Cap’s mission to bring pollution down to zero is more relevant today than it was two decades ago, so a new TV show would be a great way to get us all thinking a little bit more about the harm we’re causing.

Plus, super heroes are STILL really popular. Someone make this happen!

Beast Wars

And finally, with Transformers continuing to remain relevant with the youth of today, now seems as good a time as any to bring back the Beast Wars cartoon – a spin-off show of the original Transformers cartoon.

Beast Wars focused on the Maximals (Autobots) and Predacons (Decepticons) and while the original series had some fairly crude 3D animation, the series as a whole was pretty cool and gave some serious scope for world building.
