Caminante wept.

(Seriously, it reminds me of that unaired Saban version of Sailor Moon, with the live-action intros, except this one has added Spridle and Chim-Chim action.)
revdrew
Oh wow. I had heard of this before, but.. I didn't know.. THIS...

Did they really think kids wanted this crap in the early 90s instead of, you know, one of the original Gundam series?
Hooper_X
Did you see how well the actual gundam shows did with US kids? This probably would have made WAY more money in the age of the Planeteers.

revdrew
Umm.. the gay one did pretty ok, didn't it?

Hooper_X
Sure, but that wasn't until 2000 or so.

boner
Black guy with a flat-top in a wheelchair. Just want to make sure anyone who searches Google for that phrase will find this.
Hooper_X
AND he's clearly gay. That's a triple-decker meatball hero of minority!

zatojones
Cartoon makers in the 90s had a hardon for crippled kids in wheelchairs.

snothouse
Rob the world of fun? OF FUN?
This intro sounds like a Patton Oswalt routine.

TAGALONG AND THE OBNOXIOUS BRANDON
Sean Robinson
Yeah, Tagalong is alright, I guess. Sort of annoying, but I played soccer with him last summer and he's not so bad when you get to know him.

Fucking Brandon is a total fucking twat though. God, I hate that faggot.

Caminante Nocturno
Actually, they started doing well in America right around the time the gay one started airing. Way to go, Gay One!

Feyd
Dude, you can take the mind of a kid in a wheelchair and put it in a robot...so you put it in a wheelchair robot? Dick!
Killer Joe

Freeper diversity, maybe! 3 white athletes! A black cripple! A woman! Am I right, folks?

zatojones
Also the woman is there mainly to cheer on the main white guy

cognitivedissonance
Not only is the black kid in a wheelchair, but in his robot form he's nothing but a giant gun with with feet.

cognitivedissonance
They eventually DID release an American version of the super-deformed Gundam series, only it was in the late 90s and CGI-based. If I recall properly, the plot was really pretty much the same.

How tragic is it that I know all the names of the Gundams? Zaku, Goki... blah blah blah.
cognitivedissonance
TOREADOR ROOOOOOOOSE!

Caminante Nocturno
What... What the Hell did I just watch? Holy shit, Brandon's voiced by the same person who did Laharl's English voice acting.
Caminante Nocturno
Also, weren't they supposed to capture those fuckers? Why the Hell did they dump them into a river and let them get away?

SolRo
So was it never aired because the designs were so blatantly ripped off, or because the show just sucked?
Cube
The YouTube player tells me that related videos are "Animal Cruelty Video Attempt #2", "Lady Of Rage - Afro Puffs" and "Blood blister pop"...
Xenocide
When Japanese producers attempt to grasp American culture, hilarity ensues. I want to shake the hand of the man who decided the bad guys' entire operation should hinge on electrocuting a robot turkey.

Ursa_minor
I think that the football player somehow passed a touchdown to himself in beginning.
Ursa_minor
TOTALLY AWESOME STUFF MAX, NOW LETS SEE IF THESE LAME DUDES KNOW HOW TO DUCK - DOESN'T LOOK LIKE IT

Aernaroth2
What the hell. I mean, seriously. Just trying to wrap my head around the existence of this show is making my brain want to die.
Ersatz
Here's to hoping "robot-crapping ostrich" gets linked.
RomancingTrain
Problem is, that thing is a turkey.

dead_cat
SATAN FUCKING WEPT
Camonk
I like how the bad guys look like Battletech elementals, only gay. I... I mean I don't know anything about giant robots, be it games from America that rip off cartoons from Japan or cartoons from Japan. It's all fuckin' mystery to me.
TypicalEllisProtagonist
Was that Frank Welker at one point? Does he just burn through cash? He'll totally do anything.
Xenocide
Frank Welker once killed a gypsy's firstborn child. Now he is cursed to appear in every cartoon, ever, regardless of quality. Don't blame him, he has no choice. He can no longer die, yet he envies the dead.

bopeton
I'm not sure how they're more effective as robots than they were as athletes. I mean, I'm pretty sure I could kick some 3' tall robots and their turkey even without having my brain transferred into a robot.
Corman's Inferno
Now all we need is an American remake of Lupin to complete the trilogy of rip-offs.
Spit Spingola
Now THIS will make these confusing Japanese toys marketable to American youth! As much effort as it takes to animate it's amazing how far they got with this. What kind of thought process could decide this is a good idea?
Rodents of Unusual Size
So, they were given the superpower of being made into short, ugly, robots that looked like garbage cans. That's totally radical, cartoon writers.
Leviathant
BOTS OF FUN, BOTS OF KIDS! What really caught me off guard was that I had some kind of gameboy game and book about these squat robots that my dad brought home from Okinawa once, ages ago. I kind of figured out how to get on in the game, but I couldn't tell you what the books were on about. Definitely no mention about high school kids transmographying into the robots, and no Megaman reject turkeys. Not quite the voices I would have imagined for these things, either.
Pie Boy
I thought this might be stupidly fun until they started talking. Then it was no.
GoneGirl
+a billion for the turkey.
Mole Wax
Well, that turned me gay.
Mayberry Pancakes
Surely the professor could have come up with a better application of his technology than giving it to kids so they could beat up a robot turkey.
Spastic Avenger
My first thoughts:
1. pity the poor fucker transferred into the GM and not into a gundam of some sort. Must have drawn a short straw.

2. I am never, NEVER going to be able to see a Z'Gok as a bumbling bad guy. It has one glowing red eye, no head, and claws for hands.
Spastic Avenger
Forgot the horrible, monk like Rick Doms as well.

coprolalia

Growing up, we had a dog named Sydney, and that's what we'd say to call her.

I know...absolutely fascinating.
