The 80's really was a great decade for action cartoons, but, most of the really cool cartoons lasted less than a year. Like Defenders of the Earth...ran in 1987 only.

Here is a preview of the show.

Usually it's toys that show up on the shelves from popular cartoons, in this case, some of these Defenders would get their own spin-off movies like The Phantom and Flash Gordon, but none of which match up to the cartoon series!
