Hear the hosts break down the Biker Mice from Mars toy line and TV series, discussing the three main characters Throttle, Vinnie, and Mondo, and the differentiating aspects of each. Also in discussion are the villains and side-characters, and a look at the features of the toys and attire. Cybernetic arms, retractable antennae, and fish-alien hybrids, it's not surprising this relatively-unknown series did respectably well.
go. So many of our listeners may remember the 65 episode Cartoon, which ad from 1993 to 1996. This'll was obviously an idea spawned off the very famous Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. And the tri factor off rodents actually did all right, especially when it came to toys. So the toy line, which coincided with, said cartoon hit shelves the in 1993. Now very much like the title of this, Siri's promotes, they are mice riding motorbikes. Who would have thought, Really, you know, this is just this is writing itself right here, which ensured for most figures released there was a motorbike to accompany the figure. This was the case not only for the variance of the three heroes but also many villains as well. To break it down, each mouse had its his own stand out characteristic to help drive the storyline forward and also determined who was who. Throttle was the leader and sported a black vest and cool shades very reminiscent off what David War in the last episode Vinnie was the jokester on was had a metal plate that covered the left hand hand. The left half of his head, Mondo, which was my personal favorite. He was sort of here not only had a pirate patch over one of his eyes, but also had a cybernetic with built in flip out gun. Really cool. Each of the mice had antennae solidifying the fact that they were aliens. Eso. When the helmet was placed over their heads, the antenna would cleverly retract into their heads with ease. So Wave one consistent off nine characters. This initial wave had all the characters that played either a main role or a semi main role in the cartoon. Each of the three mice came with his own helmet, and the villains came with an accessory or two as well. Charlie was the token human whom befriended the mice, so she had a figure and then then the token protagonist, Lawrence Finn. Burger was also a human looking character, but was also was actually an alien fish. So he transferred, so he had a transforming feature, much like King hears from the masters off the universe Toy line. The other villains were Doctor Carbuncle, the resident mad scientist whom had Fred the mutant as a packing sidekick. Evil eye weevil, a skeleton looking Elvis Presley Grease pit the big muscle off the group And last but not least, was the robot looking character electro mag, whom sported tentacles like Doctor Octopus. This way Wave also had each of the mouse's traditional bikes. Each had an action feature off some variety, as well as grease pits go.
