This is one of the standard Hanna Barbera cartoons they had in
the early to mid-80's where they would take some celebrity and make a kid's show
around him. They did tons of these things. They are all pretty much alike. The
celebrity plays some hero character who runs around solving crimes, catching the
bad guys, and teaching important moral lessons to kids.
Chuck Norris appears before each episode to introduce it,
wearing his karate gear. The show did not last long. The entire series is on
here -- all 4 episodes!
Young kids might like it. It has plenty of action and adventure.
It's good for a laugh or for nostalgia if you grew up watching these kind of
cartoons when you were a kid, or if you are a big Chuck Norris fan. It would
make a good gift for a 5 to 8-year-old.
The DVD has no features or extras. Too bad!
