Episodes/Production

For one season, a total of 65 episodes were produced. The series was animated in Japan by KK DiC Asia (aka KK C&D Asia), Tokyo Movie Shinsha, Trans Arts, DEEN, Sunrise, and Studio Junio.

Since the toyline never gave names for much of the characters aside from Ricky, the development team (consisting of Jean Chapolin, J. Michael Straczynski, Terrence McDonnell, Phil Mendez and Alan Swayze) created distinct names and personalities for the characters.

Home Video

Several episodes of the series were released under Karl-Lorimar's "Kideo Video" branding on VHS in the 1980s, with two episodes per tape.

Reception

IGN gave the show a honorable mention in their Top 100 Animated Series list.
