We now know that work has begun on a reboot of M.A.S.K., Visionaries, Rom and there is now a Micronauts comic. We have a new Danger Mouse cartoon, Thundercats toys, a new He-Man movie (apparently), yet there is one franchise and it is my favourite one that we hear little about and that is Inhumanoids!
As a child Inhumanoids was my favourite show. I had only seen Inhumanoids the movie (The Evil that Lies within) and I had an episode on an old VHS which was Negative Polarity. This is still probably my favourite episode to this day. I always loved Inhumanoids because it did have a plot that flowed from episode to episode, when things were destroyed, that was it! They were gone! It was as if it was one of the first cartoons that appreciated its audience weren’t stupid enough to realise that the good guys always win. I admit Earth CORP were generally victorious, but they never actually succeeded in destroying the Inhumanoids. Also the bad guys would turn on each other, occasionally ally themselves with Earth CORP and as such, this led to many interesting twists in the storyline.
It seems there is a great deal of love still out there for Inhumanoids and I believe that this needs to continue! A reboot would be amazing and I only wonder why Hasbro won’t do it. The least they could do would be to shove a GIJOE action figure of one of the Earth CORP in their line (not unlike specialist Trakker). We need gritty, imaginative and downright entertaining shows like Inhumanoids back! I’m certainly happy to spread the word and I shall be putting various Inhumanoids links to this site!
So let’s bring it back! If there are enough of us, then we can do it!
P.S. I’m going to start putting up episode reviews on this site too!
