    It seems cable TV isn't entirely useless (for now)

    Biker Mice From Mars on El Rey Network

    And yes, it's the 1993 version.

    Just how sad is cable when a channel airs an action cartoon is actually news?

    If I got that channel I'd record it. It's almost impossible to get a decent quality version of that original show. I know there are DVDs floating around but since they're out of print, they're way overpriced. I always liked that series. It had surprising depth for a kid's show.

      I'm aware of the show but never actually watched it. I was never into the gritty style of kid's 80s action cartoons. Have I overlooked a gem here? Would you guys recommend I give it a try, and if so - given the topic of discussion here - where can I find it?

        90s action cartoon actually.

        It's silly, but fun. It's on the El Rey network, but I don't know if the U.K. gets that channel.

          Yeah, if you can find it, it's worth it. It's a show about Anthro mice that ride motorcycles and listen to heavy metal. I mean, what's not to like there?

          You might also try finding the DVDs, as they were released in the UK but not over here for some reason.

            Haha, yeah, sounds mostly up my street. I never watched it as a kid, but I was aware of it. I think my brother had a pencil case of them?

            In any case, I'll look out for the DVDs. It's unusual for stuff to be released here and not in the US. It wasn't a British show, was it?

              Oh there were all kinds of merchandise for them back in the day. There was even a SNES game.

              Here's one on amazon. May be worth getting.

              They also did a reboot or two, I think. But I never tried to watch those.

                Not to my knowledge, no.

                  Yeah, it was American. But for some reason, it and Bucky O'Hare and the Toad Wars got UK DVD releases and the US got left out.
