It turns out there was Robocop cartoon series.
This one passed me by, or I’ve erased it from my memory. It does raise some questions. Does it show the origin story where Officer Murphy is shot a bazillion times? Does it have the bit where Dr Romano melts in acid? Does anyone buy anything for a dollar?
As an idea for a kid’s show, it’s probably terrible. But the universe does make for some great merchandise, I’m sure.
I do like the look of this toy though – it’s ED-260, the next generation of ED-209 (probably cos they didn’t have the rights?).
Anyway, for what it’s worth, the show was made by Marvel, animated by AKOM, and aired in syndication at the end of 1988.
