cops_2Many 80s cartoons lacked imagination. Take Bravestarr for example. Sheriffs and cowboys in space. Add bit of lite characterization, futuristic technology, and done. C.O.P.S. is no different, taking the cops and robbers formula, adding a coat of future tech, and merchandising it. Like nearly every show that puts concept, or … Read More
