TV: M is for...

Mr T

WAS THERE no seminal US TV lovable rogue safe from cartoon enshrinement? Yes, because they always went for the crap ones, i.e. Fonz and Sergeant Bosco Baracus. Here, titular troublemaker drives around in a van with a bunch of teenage gymnasts inside, plus their dog mascot. Little is proved. Even less tune in.

    This was a bizarre cartoon, even by mid 1980s Ruby Spears standards. Mr T used to have some live action sections at the start & end to set the scene & add some commentary.

    The now defunct site The Agony Booth used to have reviews of a few episodes, pointing out the various production issues & weird plot lines.

    Chuck Norris had a similar tie-in cartoon, which I don’t think was screened in the UK.

    Recently Mike Tyson was talked into doing a pastiche of this kind of cartoon.
